Lavender and Coral Wedding at Agave Estates

It was a normal shift for Jeremiah at the retail store he worked at until Melissa walked in. Melissa lost her keys and the nice guy that Jeremiah was, he decided to help. He spent an hour with Melissa trying to search the store for her keys. After they found them, Jeremiah jokingly told Melissa she owed him dinner. “I laughed it off and drove off… but it was a Saturday night and I was thinking, ‘I’m just going home to do nothing, what do I have to lose?’ So I called back and asked him to dinner. We went…and the rest is history,” says Melissa. We are sure you’ll instantly fall in love with their rustic-elegant wedding at Agave Estates, because we definitely did. Thanks FireHeart Photography for the lovely pics and congrats to the newlyweds!

Modern Architecture Inspired Wedding at Hotel ZaZa by Akil Bennett Photography

Mothers have a knack for picking out things they are sure their daughter will like. Carrie’s mom knew that she would like James, and she was right. The two lovebirds instantly hit it off and the rest was history. James planned the perfect intimate proposal in the Four Seasons Houston Hotel private wine room and later joined friends and family who were waiting to celebrate in the main dining room. When planning their wedding, Carrie and James had a vision of their Hotel ZaZa wedding to feel like a fabulous, modern cocktail party, and that’s exactly what it was. “The décor had a modern feel to it with the main design theme being the absence of a color scheme. Instead, we chose to go with architectural light displays and black accents”, says Carrie. The reception was a party that you wouldn’t want to miss, and the guests fully enjoyed every bit of the band, comedian, cigar roller station, and caricature artist while nibbling on delish Nutella and chocolate chip cookies and mini coke floats! Sounds pretty amazing, right? Wait ‘til you see all the sweet pictures from Akil Bennett! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Michelle & Renzo ~ November 9, 2013

“Who wants to go on a blind date, right? No one! What are the odds that a blind date will lead to a happy ending? Never!” says Michelle—who proved herself wrong, in the best way, by marrying Renzo, with whom she was set up by a mutual friend. The bride, who happens to be the owner of beloved West University gift-and-housewares boutique Blue Leaf, has a natural flair for gracious design, which her 300-guest wedding showed off beautifully. As celebratory as it was spectacular, Michelle and Renzo’s wedding also featured swings hung from the ceiling, confetti cannons, a cigar roller and an after-party, complete with disco-ball drop. WOW!! Congratulations to the happy couple, wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Hindu-American Wedding by Akil Bennett Photography

“It was very important to us that our wedding day reflect both of our cultural heritages and traditions. We are thrilled we were able to incorporate two very different ceremonies into one (very long) day!” says bride, Becky. The Hindu marriage ceremony took place in the morning at the Omni Houston Hotel, “Starting with a boisterous barat procession with Aneesh along with his family and friends joyously dancing their way to the mandap (marriage pavilion), and ending with an Indian feast for lunch,” adds Becky. The Catholic ceremony was held that same evening (yes, that same day) where Becky wore a stunning lace Martina Liana gown from Brickhouse Bridal. Becky and Aneesh wanted to transform their reception venue into a small Tuscan village in the Italian countryside. “Between the bouquets of peonies and hydrangeas, the candles that filled the room with a soft glow, the tables named after Italian places close to our hearts, the Prosecco and Chianti that flowed throughout the evening, and the delectable Italian dinner, we truly felt transported,” says Becky. If you think their wedding sounds beautiful, just wait ‘til you see the pics! Thank you Akil Bennett for the fabulous photos and congrats to the newlyweds!
