Old Hollywood Glam Wedding at The Sam Houston Hotel

It all started with the typical “you look familiar” pick-up line, says Houston bride Rachel. “Patrick swears to this day that I was staring at him all night… little did he know that I did not have my contacts in and couldn’t see far away!” After one random night out in Huntsville, they were inseparable. Rachel and Patrick celebrated with 160 of their nearest and dearest at The Sam Houston Hotel. The crystal chandeliers, feather-accented centerpieces and pops of color set the tone for their “Old Hollywood” theme. Congrats, Rachel & Patrick, we wish you two nothing but a lifetime of love!

Classic Ivory, Merlot and Blush Wedding by Sarah Ainsworth Photography

From its serene gold-accented palette, to its seasonal menu of roasted corn chowder and beef tenderloin with wild-mushroom-and-onion risotto, to its crystal chandeliers and soft candlelight, Hayley and Jeffrey’s fall wedding is pretty much a perfect example of how to do fall elegance fabulously. The couple, who met on a blind date (!!)—which led to a second date the very next day—wanted their marriage celebration to be not just full of love, but utterly timeless. We think they did both, beautifully. And we’ve got the gorgeous photos by super-talented Houston photographer Sarah Ainsworth to prove it. Congratulations, Hayley & Jeffrey!

Champagne and Coral Vintage Wedding, Houston

This was by far the happiest and most perfect day of my life,” says Houston bride Megan. “My fairy tale wedding came true.” Nothing could delight us more…except, perhaps, getting to look at photos of Megan and James’ vintage-elegant wedding celebration, in shades of champagne, ivory and coral. Of course, at the heart of this lovely Texas wedding was the bride herself, radiant in her keyhole-back Watters bridal gown, gorgeous updo and birdcage veil, surrounded by bridesmaids in flowing coral. Our happiest wishes to the bride and groom—and our thanks to the newlyweds for sharing their perfect day with us…and YOU!

The New York Wedding of Todd & Ceron

Photos: Donna Von Breuning

When famed event designer Todd Fiscus, of Todd Events (with locations in Dallas and Houston), tied the knot with longtime love Ceron–he of the renowned eponymous Houston hair salon–you better believe the pair, and their delighted guests, celebrated in supremely chic style. The couple’s New Year’s Eve wedding, held in Manhattan’s Glasshouses (an ultra-cool glass-walled venue overlooking the city’s nighttime sparkle), was an intimate affair for 100 beloved guests. But the event itself was most definitely grand, with its floral entranceway, gleaming black taper candles, accents of gold and crystal, and, apropos of the holiday, plenty of Champagne and caviar. We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness, and are so thrilled to have Todd Events as a Weddings in Houston partner. Congratulations, Todd and Ceron!

Beautiful Blush and Ivory Madera Estates Wedding by Ama Photography & Cinema

There’s a certain, special, sense-of-mystery romance that only online dating can create. Just ask recent bride Vanessa, who spoke by phone to eHarmony match Eric almost every day for THREE MONTHS before meeting him face-to-face. Luckily, their in-person meeting was just as romantic as those many, many phone calls, and almost two years to the day they first laid eyes on each other, the pair wed in front of 250 loved ones at a magnificent Madera Estates celebration. While Vanessa says that selecting her song list and making her seating chart were no piece of cake, the wedding itself was pure sweetness, done up in elegant shades of ivory and blush, Vanessa radiant in her Maggie Sottero gown from Brickhouse Bridal. But let us go ahead and let Ama Photography & Cinema’s photos tell the story of this lovely couple’s special day. Best wishes, Vanessa & Eric!
