Weddings in Houston “Whiteout” Party at La Colombe d’Or by Civic Photos

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

We are SO fortunate to do what we love…and LOVE what we do. And none of it would be possible without our amazingly talented and dedicated clients, who just happen to be Houston’s absolute finest wedding vendors and experts. Oh–and another thing: These party people know how to PARTY. Which they proved in grand style last week when Weddings in Houston hosted our annual client appreciation party at magnificent, historic La Colombe d’Or. This year’s theme? Whiteout Night with WIH. Guests arrived attired all in cool, crisp white, and enjoyed a fabulous respite from the hot summer night. Our BIG thanks goes out to La Colombe d’Or’s Ed Bodde and Steve Zimmerman for hosting this year’s festivities and indulging our guests with fine food and drink, to Darryl Murchison and BJ of Darryl & Co. for their exceptional event decor and styling, to Susie’s Cakes & Confections for the evening’s utterly decadent desserts, and to Jonny Black Productions for awesome music and entertainment. Check out pix from our fantastic fete, shot by super-talented Barett Henry of Civic Photos. And remember, every single one of these vendors is available to bring their magic to your wedding, as as they did to our lil’ ol’ shindig.

If you attended last Thursday’s I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian, you got a peek at the extraordinary talent that is Darryl & Co. This Thursday, you’re in for more—much more—of Darryl Murchison’s signature sophistication and opulence, when Darryl & Co. hosts its annual spring showcase. Tablescapes, luxurious lounge settings, dazzling decor and flights of floral fantasy all will be on display at this fabulous open house and cocktail bash. And if that’s not reason enough for revelry, then the fact that this soiree is also a celebration of Darryl & Co.’s 20th anniversary most certainly is. Festivities kick off at 5:30; admission is free; your RSVP is requested.

Swag Bag Sweetness!

Bridal Gifts Favors Skincare

We at Weddings in Houston firmly believe that take-home treats shouldn’t be just for wedding guests. That’s why we put so much love—and LOTS of good stuff—into our exclusive I Do! Bridal Soiree swag bags! We want to thank the exceptional brands and vendors who contributed gifts and goodies to the swag bags our brides took home from the fabulous I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston on Sunday, Jan. 26.

Greenleaf Gifts
Not only did Greenleaf’s First Blush and Gardenia Fragrance Votives have us totally swooning with delight over their soft, romantic scents, but their packaging was pretty much perfection. Love the idea of these for visiting guests’ hotel rooms, amenity baskets, and reception powder rooms and dressing rooms. Don’t you? #weddingfavor #guestroomamenity #homefragrance #bridesmaidgift

Thymes
Infused with jasmine, rose, hyacinth, lily of the valley and other divine floral fragrances, Thymes’ Goldleaf Foaming Bath Powder is our new favorite soak-time ritual. Did we mention it leaves our skin feeling like silk and smelling like Heaven après-bath? #bridesmaidgift #spabasket #bathandbody #fragrance

Kate Somerville
When the amazing Kate Somerville offers to treat you to a skincare treatment, you’d best take her up on it. I Do! Brides: Make sure to schedule your complimentary Kate Somerville DermaQuench Treatment at Neiman Marcus…TODAY! #bridalbeauty #bridesmaidbeauty #skincare #ideserveit

Nothing Bundt Cakes
So. Freakin.’ Delicious. Once you take one bite of a Nothing Bundt Cakes Red Velvet, White-Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate or Lemon cake, drizzled and basically filled with decadent frosting, you’re a fan for life. And they make wedding cakes, too! #bundtcake #weddingcake #desserttable #ideserveit

Tiff’s Treats
Cookies make us happy. So we kinda figured they’d make y’all happy, too. And Tiff’s Treats knows how to make a cookie that’d make anyone happy. ‘Nuff said. ENJOY!
#weddingfavors #cookies #desserttable #coupon

Last but most definitely not least, we’d like to give a big ol’ Weddings in Houston shout out to Save-On Crafts for the gorgeous romance-red Sola Flowers adorning our I Do! Bridal Soiree “Bride” name tags. These natural-tapioca-fiber flowers aren’t just beautiful, they’re versatile, eco-friendly and absolutely awesome for DIY wedding decor, favor packages and other fun stuff. Check ’em out!
