Hip, Happy, Vintage Inspired Wedding by Sarah Ainsworth Photography

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Adorable. Simply adorable. That’s how we feel about Natalie and Trey, AND their wedding, which included a ceremony officiated by Reverend Lynn Turner of Weddings Performed at the Sycamore Heights Bed & Breakfast followed by a reception at Gallery M Squared at the Heights Theater. From the groom’s natty pinstripes to the bride’s bow-fronted Oleg Cassini dress to the bridesmaids’ black tights and bright bouquets to the heart-topped wedding cake and charming sweets table, there’s nothing about this lovely, low-key Houston wedding we don’t dig. Lots of DIY loveliness here, including some very sweet centerpieces, which Natalie notes “turned out better than I expected, not having all that much faith in my crafty side.” Really? They sure look good to us! And pro photographer Sarah Ainsworth’s pitch-perfect pictures make the whole scene look just that much more beautiful. Happiest wishes to the newlyweds!

Orchid-Filled Hilton Americas Wedding By Kelly Hornberger Photography

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

“I chose Hilton Americas-Houston because I loved the elegant setting that the hotel provided,” bride Natalie told us about her magnificent 280-guest wedding celebration. “As soon as you walk into the lobby you immediately notice the beautiful chandeliers and enormous marble columns situated around the lobby. The ambiance of the hotel really set the mood that I had envisioned for my wedding.” Enhancing that mood, and bringing freshness and warmth to the opulence, were simple, monochromatic, bloom-and-branch centerpieces from Darryl & Co. set against earth-toned linens and flickering votives, in a room washed in shades of pink of purple. Orchids abounded, at the request of the bride, who told us, “I knew the night Shane proposed that orchids would be a part of my wedding. During dinner on New Year’s Eve of 2010, the waiter presented me with a covered plate that I assumed would be the entree that I had ordered. When he removed the lid, I was so surprised to find the most gorgeous engagement ring situated in the middle of a beautiful orchid arrangement. I fell in love with the flower not only because of the beautiful colors, but because of the beautiful memory that it reminded me of.” For memories of her perfect day, Natalie will forever have photos from top Houston wedding photographer Kelly Hornberger, who was kind enough to share a selection with us in this here post. Thank you, Kelly—and happiest wishes to the lovely couple!

Autumn Chateau Polonez Wedding By RSVP Studios

Friday, February 3rd, 2012

They’ve known each other for 25 years, and have been a couple for nearly 19 of those. But Ana and Eric’s long courtship did not diminish the romance of their Chateau Polonez wedding one iota. After meeting in their church orchestra—she played violin, he played timpani—and eventually falling in love (starting with a surprise New Year’s Eve date in 1993), the couple said their vows, then celebrated in elegant style, with a candlelit reception at the European-style chateau. Our favorite touches? We adore the little lovebirds and the bright, fall-color floral. And, of course, who wouldn’t love those gorgeous confections from Supreme Kakes? We’re especially enamored of the “suitcase” groom’s cake, with “stickers” referencing global travel destinations, about which bride Ana told us, “People know that we usually like to travel during the summer, and one of the questions Eric gets asked is, ‘Where are you going next summer?’ He felt that this really represented our favorite thing to do, and let our friends and family have a glimpse at our future traveling plans.” We’re grateful to RSVP Studios for representing this sweet wedding in photos—and to Ana and Eric for sharing their happiness with future Houston brides.

White and Purple Woodlands Winter Wedding

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

A white winter wedding need not be devoid of color. Quite the contrary. A clean, wintry white background is the perfect foundation for a warming burst of color. Lynsey and Taylor’s December wedding celebration at The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center is a spectacular example. Against a backdrop of snow white, including white table linens, chair covers and room draping, Darryl & Co. brought in subtle touches of purple and silver, along with plenty of icy crystal, glass and rhinestone sparkle, creating an effect that was at once coolly chic and warmly inviting. Purple and pink color-wash lighting, snowflake gobos, and, of course, flickering candlelight, completed the picture, providing Lynsey, Taylor and their 225 delighted guests a winter wonderland in which to eat, drink and dance the night away. And boy, did they. Big thanks to Jaylene DeBenedictis of Sacred Image Photography for her beautiful photos of one of the loveliest winter weddings we’ve had the privilege of featuring. Enjoy!

Pink, Orange, Yellow and Green Lakeway Resort Wedding

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

The setting of Austin’s Lakeway Resort & Spa, with its Lake Travis waterfront location and Hill Country views, is spectacularly scenic on its own. But add a bounty of beautiful bright floral to the resort’s glass-walled ballroom, like bride Lauren did for her wedding to Zach, and the result is absolute WOW. Lauren says the deep-orange submerged-flower centerpieces were her favorite floral touch, and we’d have to agree. We’re also loving the subtle contrast of the dark table linens with all that sherbet-hued floral finery—a bold and beautiful choice, don’t you think? Check out these splendid photos by Jennifer Lindberg of Jennifer Lindberg Weddings, and join us in wishing Lauren and Zach a long and loving life as husband and wife!
