Sage, Peach & Coral Garden Wedding by J. Cogliandro Photography

Monday, December 29th, 2014

Robin first met Andrew back in 2003 when he hired her as his paralegal. “I had no idea my future husband was right down the hall all those years,” says Robin, who would one day marry that charming attorney in the garden of the home she would share with him in the heart of Houston’s Museum District. On that wonderful day, the couple’s home provided the perfect backdrop to complement their nature-inspired wedding theme, where shades of coral and peach provided pops of color among the soft beige and ivory decor. Following the enchanted-garden ceremony, a cocktail hour on the pool terrace treated guests to fine wine, cocktails and hors d’oeuvre. The reception took place in the backyard underneath a tent covered with quince branches and hung with a chandelier draped with flowers in shades of peach, apricot and coral. Swooning already? Yeah, we thought so. Check out the decadent details for yourself in our amazing photos by J. Cogliandro Photography. Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!

Blush, Ivory & Gold Wedding at The Petroleum Club of Houston

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

“I’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to propose, but then realized that just being with you is perfect enough, will you marry me?” are the exact words that Julio said to sweep Houston bride Alejandra off her feet. The pair celebrated with 280 of their nearest and dearest at The Petroleum Club of Houston. The breathtaking views of the city from the 43rd floor provided the perfect backdrop to complement their sophisticated color palette of blush, ivory and gold. We fell in love with the gorrrgeous rose, hydrangea, phalo and orchid flower arrangements that filled the room with elegance. Sounds amazing, right? Just wait until you see the pics! Congrats and best wishes, Alejandra & Julio!

Blush, Mint & Cream Vintage Wedding by Kreative Angle Photography

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Vintage candleabras, lanterns, lace overlays, vintage vases, and a soft color palette of blush, mint, cream and lush greens are what defined Anna and George’s dreamy, vintage wedding. If you think the décor sounds to die for, wait ‘til you hear about the delish menu! The guests indulged in pistachio-crusted Redfish and New York strip au jus with horseradish cream (mmm) from Café Natalie. We hope you enjoy the beautiful photos from Anna and George’s wedding as much as we do. Thanks Kreative Angle Photography and congrats to the newlyweds!

Red, Black and Gold Winter Wedding at the Magnolia Hotel by DC Stanley Photography

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

How’s THIS for a proposal story? “It was a night of reliving ‘firsts’—a Rockets game (our first official meeting), dinner at Vic & Anthony’s (our first official date), drinks at Hotel Zaza…,” says bride Brie Anna. “On a balcony overlooking the Museum District, he surprised me with a hand-drawn charcoal portrait of the two of us. The entire portrait was black and white, EXCEPT for a canary-yellow diamond engagement ring placed on my ring finger within the picture. My eyes were instantly drawn to the yellow image and I turned to find Craig down on one knee!” The couple’s December wedding, with its Catholic church ceremony and “lounge-feel” Magnolia Hotel reception—“NO traditional seating—cocktail-style vignettes and comfortable couches,” the bride recounts—captured the festiveness of the season, as did the surprise “flash mob” organized for the groom! Congratulations to the happy couple, and thanks to DC Stanley Photography for the fantastic photos of the fabulous winter wedding.

A Memorable Event Hosts Two Top Wedding Celebs

Wednesday, December 10th, 2014

Earlier this week, hot Houston decor, floral and fine-event-rentals outfit A Memorable Event hosted celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss and famed international floral designer Jeff Leatham, along with a selection of Houston’s top event professionals and media…and WHAT a memorable event it was. We were thrilled to attend this lovely luncheon and design showcase (yup, that’s a picture of our very own Radhika Day, founder and publisher of Weddings in Houston, cozied up to the brilliant Jeff Leatham). And, after all, who wouldn’t be? Both Weiss (wedding planner to stars including Adam Sandler, Eva Longoria, Jessica Simpson and MANY more) and Leatham (artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris and author of “Jeff Leatham: Visionary Art and Floral Design,” among other gorgeous flower-focused books) spoke extensively about their lives, work and approaches to event design. And WE ate it up. Along with lots of yumminess from the talented catering crew at the Westin Galleria, host hotel for this fabulous event. As for the floral and tabletop displays? WOW. Just…WOW. Thanks so much to the wonderful staff of A Memorable Event for a fantastic day of inspiration, elegance and knowledge!
