Four Seasons Las Vegas catering manager Nicole readily admits that her event-planning experience was both a blessing and a curse when it came time to prepare for her own wedding. “Being an event planner, there were so many ideas. Then when one was selected, I would want to change it for a more cost-effective option. Experience and knowing how many options there were made choosing very difficult. That’s why I was kicked off [the job] and my mom and planner”—Kat Creech, of Houston’s Kat Creech Events—“took my vision and created the perfect day!” The bride’s dream wedding to her beloved Cham (whom she met by boldly strutting up and introducing herself, upon catching sight of his handsome mug at a local pub—let that be a lesson to you, ladies!) is a mystical garden of multiple delights, set inside the window-lined space of a historic Houston theater. From the jewel-tone centerpieces, suspended birdcages, Spanish moss and floral peacocks to the brooch bouquets and stained-glass windows, Nicole and Cham’s elegant Houston wedding is the perfect balance of lush natural bounty and sublime sparkle. We hope you’ll agree, and that you’ll join us in swooning over photos from ALTF Photographers, and in wishing these two a lifetime of love and happiness! And don’t forget to visit Kat Creech Events at this Sunday’s I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, for details on how Creech and her crew can transform your wedding fantasy into reality, just like she did for lucky (and savvy) bride Nicole.

When acclaimed Houston wedding videographers Alex Douglas and Whitney Henderson, of award-winning Sculpting With Time Productions, said their own “I do’s,” it was with glorious Palm Beach, Fla., as their backdrop. The couple’s wedding, with its Royal Poinciana Chapel Gardens ceremony and gorgeous Flagler Museum reception, is so utterly sigh-inducing, we’ll just go ahead and let photographer Jess Barfield’s stunning pix speak for themselves. Visit Barfield’s blog for more beautiful images of this wondrous wedding. And while you’re at it, check out Alex Douglas’s award-winning documentary “The Passage,” on the incredible history and modern-day significance of the Panama Canal, which took Best Cinematographer honors at the Harlem International Film Festival and will have its West Coast premiere on Jan. 30th at Opening Night of the huge Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where it is nominated for the Social Justice award (and where this year’s speakers include Oprah Winfrey, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, to name a few).
