Red & White Western Wedding by Adam Nyholt Photography


Jordan and Moises ~ March 15, 2014

“Hook, line and sinker,” is how Jordan describes her feeling about Moises when the then-Sigma-Chi-president texted her, “I like your boots,” following the fraternity-chapter meeting where the two first met working on a philanthropic project. While Moises proposed in Paris, the couple’s wedding was Tex-Mex all the way, from their Houston Livestock Show rehearsal dinner to their menu of chips-and-queso, tamales and plantain-crusted chicken, to the custom Texas-flag boots the bride wore at her reception—which took place, incidentally, at her family’s vast horse ranch, where Jordan spent much of her youth. With their wedding, she adds, she and Moises strove for “a tasteful balance between our down-to-earth roots and our love for rich color and bold decor—basically the chicest darn ranch shindig this cowgirl has ever seen!”

Weddings in Houston Publisher Radhika Day Wins Big Award

Today we’re taking a tiny little break from beautiful wedding and bridal inspiration to recognize the achievements of someone who inspires US: our very own Radhika Day, publisher of Weddings in Houston magazine. Now, y’all may not be familiar with NACE, aka the National Association of Catering Executives, but for those of us who work in the world of weddings and events, NACE is a very big deal. And last month, the Houston chapter of NACE honored Radhika with a very big award—Networker of the Year—announced at the NACE Houston annual awards. We’re thrilled for Radhika—but, we’ve gotta say, not a bit surprised. As publisher of Weddings in Houston, Radhika works tirelessly on behalf of our magazine and our clients, a number of whom, we’re delighted to say, ALSO received NACE awards in December. We’re so grateful to have her steering our ship, and so proud of her NACE award. Please join us in wishing her a big ol’ CONGRATULATIONS!

Oh—and by the way, we should mention that for its glitzy annual awards ceremony honoring the best in the event biz, NACE chose the Royal Sonesta Houston Hotel…which just happens to be the very same gorgeous hotel where we will be hosting the I Do! Bridal Soiree on Sunday, Jan. 27. Haven’t reserved your pre-sale tix yet? There’s still time!

The New Issue of Weddings in Houston is OUT!

The New Issue of Weddings in Houston is OUT!

Impossible to believe it was July 1987 when Weddings in Houston published its very first magazine. Little did we know that one day we’d become the biggest, most beautiful, most beloved bridal publication in town—and one of the most admired in the entire country! OK, we kinda knew it 😉 We were very ambitious, and determined to be amazing, even way back then.

Our newest issue, which just hit newsstands—and may actually have bent a few of them, sorry, it’s 416 oversize, glossy pages of wedding WOW after all—marks 25 years to the month that we began. It’s a huge anniversary for us, and we are beyond thrilled to share it with you.

Open our new issue and swoon through stunning bridal couture spreads, reception-design tips from celebrity wedding planner Diann Valentine, big-day styling advice from hot NY stylist Allison Berlin, dessert-table inspiration from Amy Atlas, breathtaking tablescapes, dazzling cakes, must-have registry picks and much, much more.

Pick up your copy today or buy your copy here (and please, remember to bend at the knees)!
