Naomi Campbell’s a fan. So’s Lady Gaga. And “Glee’s” Lea Michele rocked the Beverly Hilton’s step-and-repeat in a GORGEOUS pink, white and gold number of his at a recent event. He’s Israeli designer Alon Livne, and he’s the newest name to be featured by top Houston bridal salon Mia Bridal Couture. Next week, Mia is set to dazzle brides (and their besties) with a buzz-generating Alon Livne White trunk show, turning the spotlight on Livne’s red-carpet-inspired wedding gown styles. If bold contouring, exquisite embroidery and sexy, sheer touches are your cup of tea, plan to visit Mia Bridal Couture’s chic-yet-utterly-inviting River Oaks space, where you’ll be doted on and pampered…and have ALL your Alon Livne bridal questions answered by a representative of the design house! Gown-purchase incentives will be offered at this exclusive Houston bridal trunk show, and styling assistance will be on hand. Appointments are required, and are available for Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 19-21…so call 713.622.2022 to make yours now!

I Do! Bridal Soiree Houston

Photo: Civic Photos

What a NIGHT. Right?? If you were among the fortunate 300 Houston brides, bridesmaids, grooms and their guests who made the oh-so-savvy decision to snap up I Do! Bridal Soiree tickets while they lasted, last Thursday evening was a night to remember, indeed. On Thursday, Feb. 12, Weddings in Houston magazine presented the truly magnificent I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian. For three magical hours, attendees met with A-list Houston vendors [see full exhibitor list here!]; dined on sumptuous Mediterranean, Asian and Texas-inspired specialties courtesy of world-renowned Jackson and Company catering; sipped French Champagne and fine wine; enjoyed live entertainment and decadent treats; chatted with mingling models showing off the season’s most gorgeous couture wedding gowns; and, perhaps most thrillingly, wandered through a wonderland of weddingscapes featuring the artistry of Houston’s finest design experts. Whether you were one of our honored guests, or you plan to attend our Fall I Do! Bridal Soiree, coming Oct. 18 to the Four Seasons Hotel Houston–or BOTH–we welcome you to tour Civic Photos’ images of the I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian. And please join us in thanking Jackson and Company, The Corinthian, Civic Photos, A&A Video, LBL Event Rentals/Linens by Lisa, EB Inc Events, Southern Hospitality Coffee Company, Jonny Black Productions and Scott Graham Piano, for their fabulous contributions to the I Do! Bridal Soiree.

Romantic White and Red Wedding at Chateau Polonez by Civic Photos

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

If you fell helplessly in love with this ridiculously gorgeous couple’s retro-chic engagement shoot by Civic Photos, just wait until you see their wedding! Houston bride Kristy and her groom Desmond wanted to give their guests a glimpse of what it would be like to attend a romantic wedding in a French chateau and, “Chateau Polonez provided the perfect ambiance,” she says. Kristy looked like a dream in a stunning fit-and-flare lace gown with a Swarovski beaded belt from Winnie Couture and show-stopping Christian Louboutin sheer, sparkling pumps. And dashing Desmond more than held his own. Looking for winter wedding inspiration?  Take a cue from Kristy and Desmond’s creamy ivory, white and deep red palette–a perfect color combo for cold-season festivities. Big thanks to fine photographers Saul Munoz and Barett Henry of Civic Photos, and our most sincere congrats to Kristy and Desmond, we wish you two the best!
