Black & Pink Wedding at Heather’s Glen

Thursday, December 17th, 2015

Sidney and Richard are living proof that “yes, you actually CAN find true love at a night club,” notes the bride. Their unexpected meet-cute one Saturday evening made quite the lasting impression, and Richard made sure to ask for Sidney’s phone number by the end of the night. In the months to follow, Sidney and Rick (as she calls him) left their nightclub days behind and discovered a mutual passion for health and fitness–and meanwhile, for each other. Says Sidney: “Despite having all odds stacked against us, we gave true love a shot on the dance floor and we couldn’t be any happier or healthier than we are today!” Less than two years later, Rick proposed in his driveway right after the couple had just returned home from an intense sweat session, but neither one cared: “As soon as Rick had the ring, he couldn’t wait to pop the question.” The two wed in an intimate ceremony attended by 100 close family members and friends, followed by a Chinese tea ceremony and dinner reception at the romantic Heather’s Glen. “Ours was truly a fairy tale wedding,” the couple agrees. Congrats, Sidney and Rick!

Moroccan-Inspired Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

Brittany’s vision of a Moroccan-inspired wedding came to life at The Bell Tower on 34th. The rich color palette of fuchsia, purple, green and hints of orange incorporated in the flowers and décor added the perfect amount of sultry flair. Brittany and Ian wined and dined with 250 of their nearest and dearest with a lavish menu included lamb pops, crab cakes, prime rib and late night snacks. The candlelight dinner, live belly dancing performances and a camel photo op were just a few highlights of the night. Of course, it was only appropriate that Nadine Moon of Who Made The Cake! created a decadent 5-foot tall Moroccan plush pillow cake for the splendid occasion. Sounds like an affair to remember, right? Just wait ‘til you see the photos. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Metallic Wedding at The Houstonian by Akil Bennett Photographer

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Brittney and Jeff grew up in the same town and even attended their high school’s Homecoming together as friends back in 2002, but it wasn’t until much later that the pair officially became a couple. On a trip to San Francisco with Brittney’s parents, Jeff planned a night to remember for his love when he proposed in front of the Golden Gate Bridge on their way to dinner: “The best part was that the Uber driver had my phone and was able to capture the entire thing,” notes Brittney. Surrounded by 250 of their closest loved ones, the pair tied the knot in a formal Methodist ceremony and then gathered for hors d’oeuvre and dancing at the glamorous Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. Metallic hues of gold, bronze and gunmetal gray gave the “lounge”-styled room a fabulously futuristic flair, a live blues band entertained the crowd and Susie’s Cakes & Confections provided a three-tier monogrammed cake for guests to enjoy before hitting the dance floor. The bride’s favorite part of the evening, however, “was when the confetti cannons went off on the dance floor while everyone was dancing and having a good time.” Congratulations, Brittney and Jeff!

Gold, Hot Pink & Black Wedding at Chateau Cocomar

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

Sometimes reconnecting with your high school boyfriend is a good thing—just ask Houston bride Codi. After graduating college and moving back home, Codi and Austin fell in love all over again and decided this time it was for forever. Codi brought a new meaning to true Houston glam when she wed Austin in a feather-accented Stephen Yearick gown from Brickhouse Bridal. Her vision of a glamorous, fairytale wedding came to life at Chateau Cocomar. “Instead of using the typical blush and white color palette, I added hot pink and black for a more unique look,” she says. Black sequin linens and mercury glass candle holders were just a couple of details that added a romantic yet glamorous look to the decor. We couldn’t help but swoon, and know you will, too, after seeing the lovely photos. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Lacey and Tyler spent their entire childhood not knowing that they lived a half mile away from each other until their paths crossed in college. All it took was a day of floating the Guadalupe River with friends for Lacey and Tyler to meet and the rest was history. Four years later Tyler decided to put a ring on it at St. Paul’s Methodist Church where she had always dreamed of, “I had always envisioned getting married there since I was a little girl and he knew how much I loved that building,” Lacey says. Lacey wed Tyler in a classic Reem Acra gown in front of 270 of their nearest and dearest. “I always say that marrying Tyler was the most natural thing I have ever done,” adds Lacey. If you think their love story is sweet, just wait ‘til you see the pics by D. Jones Photography. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
