4 Seasons of Wedding WOW: Tablescapes for Spring, Summer, Winter & Fall

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

When we gathered together a selection of super-talented Houston wedding florists, decorators and stylists at coveted Downtown venue the Corinthian-Houston and asked them to create wedding reception table designs that embody the spirit of each of the four seasons…well…we knew we were in for something special. Fortunately, fabulous photographer Taylor Golden was on hand to capture the seasonal magic, which we’re sharing with you right here in this bountiful blog post! Love what you see? Pin it, Instagram it, share it, love it, let us know!

7 Ways Neutrals Can Anchor Your Wedding Tablescape

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Basic beige? Not even. Choose linens, rentals and tenting in neutral hues to tie your flowers, table settings, and decor together. Ask your wedding planner and florist for tips, and take inspiration from these neutral wedding palette “tricks!”

1. A pattern in a neutral color acts almost as a solid.

2. Neutral chairs and linens paired with greenery bring the outdoors in.

3. Barely-there “ghost” chairs and soft white tenting create airy space for larger receptions.

4. Pair a neutral pattern with gold and a range of pinks and greenery for a fresh palette.

5. Use varying saturations and tones of a classic neutral (in this case, taupe) to add dimension to decor.

6. A light-hued, sheer runner paired with a natural surface acts as a texture rather than a color, creating layers of interest.

7. White, as a textured table linen or used sparingly on napkins or chair sashes, lends a clean, modern finish.

Modern Black & White Wedding at Hotel ZaZa by Adam Nyholt

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

This week, as all of us take shelter from the unprecedented deluge of Hurricane Harvey, and take stock of everything that is dear and precious to us, we will be sharing some of our favorite weddings of the last few years. If you need an escape, a moment of peace, a reminder of the importance of family, friends and, above all, love, please settle in, snuggle down and join us. And once the storm clouds clear, and the water recedes, let us know what we can do to help you. We are all in this together. #BeStrongHouston #LoveConquersAll

Houston bride Rozlind wanted her wedding to be a fabulous party that still had a warm, inviting feeling. From the black and white decor, to the all-white flowers, and romantic candlelit ballroom at Hotel ZaZa, Rozlind and Matthew’s wedding was the definition of modern glam. If you think all of this sounds glamorous, just wait till you see Rozlind’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe lace heels! Thanks, Adam Nyholt, for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!
