An Organic Skin Serum That Works as Well as It Smells!

 

Just because it’s been raining for, like, a gazillion days on end, doesn’t mean our pre-bridal skin is soaking up the wet stuff. Winter skin, no matter how stormy the season, needs a little help from antioxidants and hydrating compounds. Which is exactly what Red Flower packs into its Illuminating Rose Collagen Renewal Face Serum. Boosted with rose damascena petals and 10,000 cold-pressed cloudberry and raspberry seeds, this rejuvenating floral oil is designed to reduce signs of skin damage, boost circulation and give a glow to your skin, any season of the year. Make it part of your pre-bridal beauty regimen (we did, and we’re already seeing the results!), and make a vow to take the best possible care of yourself, outside and in, as you make your way toward your special day.

Beautiful Bridal Smile from Texas Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry

A confident bride is a beautiful bride. And NOTHING makes you feel more confident than a brilliant, white, radiant smile.

Fortunately, you live in Houston, where Dr. Guy M. Lewis, DDS, AAACD, heads up the renowned Texas Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry—one of the nation’s foremost centers for transformative dentistry. Not only is Dr. Lewis the official cosmetic dentist for the Houston Rockets and Houston Astros, AND the go-to “gorgeous smile” guy of numerous beauty pageant contestants (Miss Texas, Miss Teen Texas, Miss Hawaiian Tropic), but he’s also, well, just so darn nice. And the TCCID staff—you may have chatted with them at our recent I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian—if we’ve ever met a sweeter bunch of gals, we can’t remember when.

Here’s another something sweet for your teeth (but, you know, not sugary sweet—Heaven forbid, honey!): Schedule your Texas Center for Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry appointment before July 31, 2015, let them know you are a Weddings in Houston bride, and you’ll receive $100 off smile-transforming Zoom Whitening, OR a FREE cosmetic dentistry consultation.

Romantic Hotel ZaZa Spring Wedding by Akil Bennett Photography

“We met at a charity camp for children with cancer called Candlelighter’s, back in El Paso,” recounts recent bride Paige. “Patrick was the counselor for the youngest boys and I was the counselor for the youngest girls. Patrick had a ‘tough guy’ exterior, but seeing him with those children, gentle and kind, melted my heart and I was immediately in love. By the end of the camp we were constantly talking and flirting, sharing music and books; it was a beautiful beginning to a beautiful relationship.” We’ll second that, Paige. And third it. And just melt over it right along with you, while we sigh over Akil Bennett’s gorgeous photos of your Hotel ZaZa spring wedding. Thank you so much for donating your time and love to children in need, and for sharing your beautiful day with our beautiful Houston brides. Congratulations!
