Dreamy Indoor Garden Wedding from Planner Kat Creech

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.

Sweet Spring, Texas, June Wedding by Ama Photography & Cinema

Selling cell phones might not be the world’s most glamorous job, but it can pay off—with a husband, for instance! It was on the floor of a Sprint retail store where Gesselle met her beloved John, the man she’d eventually marry in a lovely June outdoor ceremony followed by a fun-filled dining-and-dancing reception where burlap, orchids and candlelight played against one another for a perfect rustic-elegant ambiance. Big thanks to Aisha Khan of Ama Photography & Cinema for the lovely photos, and our heartfelt best wishes to the newlyweds!

Dreamy Vintage Texas Garden Wedding

Talk about a fairytale proposal: “A month before I graduated from Texas A&M, my parents planned a family trip to Disney World. Nolan and I were walking through the Magic Kingdom when he said, ‘I know it’s probably way too late to make dinner reservations in Cinderella’s castle, but I’m going to ask anyways.’ When he came back, he said, ‘There was a cancellation, so I took it!’ When we walked inside the castle, Cinderella greeted us and we took a picture with her. Then, we were escorted to our table. I was so caught up in taking photos of everything inside that I did not notice how weird Nolan was acting. I was starting to get a little concerned when our dessert was delayed, and then it all happened. A waiter brought out a silver platter, sat it down in front of me, and underneath was a glass slipper with my beautiful ring on it! Nolan walked over to my chair, got down on one knee, and asked me to marry him. All of the Disney princesses came out and congratulated us, and a photographer snapped photos. It really was magical,” says bride Cady. Magical, too, was the couple’s vintage-inspired wedding, filled with personal mementos, antiques and DIY touches. “We laid out a dance floor under the stars, had a live band playing Frank Sinatra songs, and we sent off floating lanterns at the end of the night (ever since I saw the movie ‘Tangled’, I have been so fascinated with those things). We left the reception in an awesome, light blue Cadillac from the fifties. It was a loud ride to Houston, but it was a lot of fun!” Congratulations, Cady and Nolan, and thanks to NYC-based photographer Tahni Candelaria-Holm of Joyeuse Photography for the lovely pix of this charming Texas wedding.
