Blue, Yellow and Gray Wedding at the Tremont House by Adam Nyholt Photographer


Cameron & Bryar ~ October 5, 2013

There’s something to be said for spontaneity, notes bride Cameron, whose then-boyfriend Bryar “proposed completely out of the blue at my apartment on a lazy Sunday afternoon.”  While the proposal may have been less than formal, the couple’s Galveston wedding was a grand celebration at the historic Tremont House hotel, where 300 guests enjoyed gourmet Texas specialties—seafood gumbo, shrimp and grits, beef brisket—along with DIY Champagne cocktails, glamorous boas, and dancing on a magnificent monogrammed white dance floor. The bride’s favorite memory? “Dancing a father-daughter dance to ‘My Girl.’”

A Memorable Event Hosts Two Top Wedding Celebs

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!

HWB Hearts: Sweet & Stylish Bride and Groom Chairs

Generally speaking, we prefer that the bride and groom party amongst their beloved guests rather than separating themselves, and observing the festivities from a distance. That said, we also prefer adorableness. And nothing’s more adorable than a sweetly decorated pair of bride and groom chairs. Vintage finds, Mr. & Mrs. bunting or signs, floral garlands, swagged fabric, a sprinkle of sparkle—all of these transform ordinary chairs into very special seating for your very special day. Just pull your bride and groom chairs right on up to the table and join the party. Here are some of our absolute favorite Mr. and Mrs. chair choices!
