Mother’s Day Love: Houston Bride Jansu Shares Her Fave Mom Moment

Friday, May 12th, 2017

MOM. She’s there for you every step of the way, whenever you need her—especially during wedding planning! With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we want to show all of the mamas out there how much we appreciate them. We asked our lovely Instagram followers what their fave wedding moment with Mom was, and we just had to share what Houston bride Jansu had to say.

“The night before the wedding, my mom and I had a sleepover—just the two of us. We reminisced about my childhood memories, and when I first met my husband in high school. We’d had a physics study party at his house, and when my mom came to pick me up, he was SO formal! He came outside just to shake her hand through the window,” says Jansu.

“We laughed and cried until 2 in the morning. Even though I got little sleep the night before the big day, it was the perfect way to calm my nerves and spend some special time with my mom. She’s my best friend—hands down,” she adds.

We loved Jansu’s fave wedding moment with her mom so much, that we gave her a deluxe pedi package for two courtesy of Citris Nail Spa. Congrats on winning this fabulous giveaway! We hope you and your mom enjoy every moment of Mother’s Day. Xo!

Venues We Love: Agave Estates…PLUS A Romantic Dinner for 2 GIVEAWAY

When it comes to weddings, it’s all about the ambiance, darlings — that total experience of sight, sound, fragrance, flavor, setting, landscape and design, all rolled together. And TBH, it’s hard to imagine a wedding location with more built-in ambiance than Agave Estates, Katy’s beautiful hidden gem, nestled into a 30-acre wildlife sanctuary that feels a million miles away from downtown Houston (in reality, it’s only 30).

When you first glimpse the terra cotta walls, wood arbors and curved archways of Agave’s private enclave, you may think you’ve somehow stepped back in time…and into an era of cobblestones and courtyards, the sound of a burbling fountain somewhere in the distance. But nope, no time travel here, honey. You’ve just found yourself face-to-face with a full-service wedding site designed specifically to create a sense of total escape and immersion for your outdoor wedding ceremony and unforgettable reception. In other words: You’ve found a little slice of Paradise.

For those couples seeking a true Spanish Villa vibe — and room to celebrate with up to 300 of their nearest and dearest — the estate’s Agave Road is a favorite. With towering oak trees, fluttering palms, huge hand-carved wood doors and 10,000 square feet of reception space, Agave Road doesn’t just offer ample space and great service, but some of the most gorgeous photo opps in the entire region.

For weddings on the more intimate side, Agave Real features natural stone and wrought-iron accents, glowing sconces, plus a lovely view of the lagoon-like reflecting pool, and is a superb celebration spot for groups of up to 200.

The newest member of the Agave Estates family is Agave Rio — a delightful patio restaurant serving up fresh seafood, steaks and Latin-influenced fare, along with classic, tropical-leaning cocktails, all in an al fresco environment that welcomes you to linger long, and savor the feeling of a relaxing oasis. It’s also a perfect place for elegant rehearsal dinners, engagement parties, bridal showers and day-after brunches. Want to try it out for yourself? Comment on our Agave-themed Facebook and Instagram posts, or email us your first and last name, fiancé’s name, wedding date and wedding venue (either booked or wish listed!) for automatic entry into our Agave Rio Dinner for 2 GIVEAWAY! One lucky bride or groom will WIN; winner will be notified on Tuesday, May 2 and announced on Facebook and Instagram. Shouldn’t it be…YOU?
