Athena Gun Club Bridal Open House Tues. 9/8

Photos: Athena Gun Club & Social Sell

Athena, the Greek goddess of courage, wisdom, and law and justice, seems an apt namesake for Houston’s most sophisticated and woman-friendly shooting range. But Athena Gun Club is so much more than a place to practice one’s marksmanship skills or learn the finer points of handgun safety. Athena Gun Club, is in fact, one of THE coolest spots in town to gather your gals for an exhilarating, inspiring and totally one-of-a-kind bachelorette bash or bridesmaids’ night-out.

Kick off your pre-wedding celebration with a turn in Athena’s dynamic virtual simulator, sprinting through the faux battleground of your choice (Wild West? Sure! Zombies more your cup of tea? They’ve got those, too!). Progress to Athena’s state-of-the-art live fire range, for a high-tech shooting experience that will keep you all fired up, and keep your BFFs smiling BIG. Then relax and relive your tales of target glory over fresh, handcrafted cocktails and delicious bites.

Did we mention that Athena hosts bachelor bashes, rehearsal dinners and engagement parties, too? Now we did.

Grab your spouse-to-be and/or a couple of gun-loving besties (or interested novices), and check out Houston’s hottest gun club for yourself next Tuesday, Sept. 8th, from 6-8 p.m., when Athena hosts a Bridal Open House, including a private tour, 50% off range fees and awesome simulator demonstrations! RSVP here. See you THERE.

 

Blush, Ivory & Silver Wedding at Omni Houston Hotel

“It was Christmas Eve 2013. Tristan said he had a gift ornament for me hanging on the tree. On the front it read, “Our first Christmas together,” and on the back was a bride and groom. I turned around and he was on one knee asking to spend the rest of our Christmases together,” says Autumn. So sweet, right? A year later, Autumn wed Tristan in a lace Pronovias gown from Parvani Vida Bridal & Formal and celebrated with 165 of their nearest and dearest at the Omni Houston Hotel. Favorite moment? “Dancing with all of our family and friends,” Autumn says. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Ivory, Lavender & Sage Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th Street

What are the odds that a speed-dating mixer will lead to a happily ever after? Well, Raquel and Robert beat the odds and instantly hit it off. Ten months after meeting at the mixer, Robert wined and dined Raquel at Antica Osteria. “I guessed halfway through dinner what was going to happen,” says Raquel. After dinner Robert took Raquel to Hermann Park for an intimate proposal. “For some reason, all of the lights were out at the park. Nevertheless, the proposal was in true form of our relationship- a little bit of tradition mixed with corky romance, but always full of surprises and good laughs!” adds Raquel. The pair wanted a romantic, garden theme wedding with lots of candles, which perfectly complemented The Bell Tower on 34th Street. “We wanted to include hint of our Asian and Irish heritage through the colors and favors,” she adds. It was only appropriate that Raquel married her Prince Charming in a Rivini gown from Mia Bridal Couture paired with satin white Badgley Mischka peep-toe pumps. *Sigh* Just wait ‘til you see the lovely photos! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Blush, Orange, Silver & Gold Wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Houston by DC Stanley Photography

Jane met Andrew during his first week of training in her department at Four Seasons Dallas.  Little did she know that after being transferred to Four Seasons Whistler they would still keep in touch. A year later after traveling back and forth to visit their mutual friends, they had their first date and the rest was history. Jane and Andrew decided that it was only appropriate, as former Four Seasons employees, to celebrate their wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Houston.  “We wanted a simple yet polished design. We decorated the ballroom with soft pink, silver, gold and pops of orange to blend in with the chandeliers,” says Jane. After the reception, guests met at the pool to continue celebrating with drinks, late-night snacks, adult snow cones and a DJ from LG Entertainment that kept everyone dancing until 2 a.m. Sounds like quite the party, huh? Just wait ‘til you see the photos by DC Stanley Photography. Congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Rustic Southern Wedding by Akil Bennett Photography

Lindsey and her groom David wanted a rustic, yet elegant outdoor wedding that combined their Texan roots and laid-back style. “I wanted candles and flowers, and lots of them,” says Lindsey. “I wanted a night that not only represented and honored David and I, but our families and friends as well,” she adds. Soft lighting, wooden accents, hints of burlap and a soft color palette made Lindsey and David’s vision of a night underneath-the-stars come to life. We fell in love with their wedding and are sure you will, too. Thanks Akil Bennett for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!
