Classic, Traditional, Blush, Green and Gold Houston Wedding at Chateau Cocomar

Looking absolutely gorgeous in her Lazaro gown, bride Corina wed handsome groom Eric in front of 130 of the couple’s nearest and dearest. And despite the heat of the summer day, Chateau Cocomar looked fresh and cool for the occasion, filled as it was with crisp linens, gorgeous blush and ivory flowers courtesy of Arteflora, and plenty of light-catching crystals. For all its elegant formality, this Houston couple’s wedding was also FUN, featuring dancing, sparklers, teddy bears…and a performance by none other than the bride herself! Our thanks to Lulu Lopez for the great photos, and our heartfelt congratulations to the lovebirds, Corina and Eric.

Fun, Festive, Fabulous Indian-American Wedding

“With you, things are the way they should be, and I would like to continue that forever.” Was a simpler or lovelier proposal statement ever spoken? Sigh. California-raised Jack wed Texan Nisha this summer, blessing his mom—finally!—with a daughter, after four sons. The pair’s 400-guest celebration, with its Indian and American influences (saris, mandap, cake balls, cocktails) was a feast not only for the palate, but for the eyes, thanks to Darryl & Co., who did up Bayou City Event Center in a swank wedding color scheme of black-and-white stripes with vibrant hot-pink and purple floral arrangements, gold accents and amber lighting. Just looking at Biyani Photography’s photos makes us wish we were at this incredibly fun and gorgeous Houston wedding. Thank you for sharing your special day, Nisha and Jack—we are so happy for you!

Lavender and Coral Galveston Texas Wedding at Hotel Galvez

When Greg cut his foot on a Memorial Day weekend river-house trip, Laura, who barely knew him, was urged by her matchmaking best friend to “‘fix his foot because I was in school to become a physician assistant,” she tells us. Little did Laura know she was taping up the tootsie of her future husband. Two years later, the pair wed at Galveston’s historic Hotel Galvez & Spa, amidst billowing white draping, lush lavender, mauve and coral flowers, and lots and lots of family. “The entirety of the wedding was very family oriented. The ceremony was written by our immediate family over a long dinner a week before the wedding. Greg’s father performed the ceremony, with my parents giving a reading. My matron of honor was my sister and the best man was Greg’s brother, who wore his U.S. Marines dress blues,” recounts Laura. And while Laura and Greg’s fancy moves—a result of dance classes prior to the big day—elicited oohs and aahs, another dance-floor moment at this Texas wedding was even more moving: “An anniversary dance was performed, with my aunt and uncle being the last dancing, with 43 years of marriage. Greg and I are always compared to this particular couple due to over a foot height difference between us, which my aunt and uncle also share; that was a special touch.” Congratulations to the newlyweds (and their long-wed relatives!), and big thanks to JW Baugh Photography for the pretty pictures!

Personal and Pretty DIY Yacht Club Wedding by Sarah Ainsworth Photography

A DIY wedding for more than 200 guests is no easy feat, so when you pull it off beautifully, it pays to have an awesome photographer—in this case the super talented Sarah Ainsworth—documenting it for posterity. Delane wanted to her wedding to Ryan to be both unforgettable and affordable…and with help from her mother, grandmother, Etsy artists and a few handy craft and hobby retailers, that’s exactly what it was. Using a palette of royal blue and beige with touches of rustic burlap and feminine lace, the bride and her helpers filled Lake Conroe’s Bentwater Yacht Club with sweet, vintage, and, most of all, deeply personal elegance. Homemade pies (the bride’s favorite), a duck-hunting-theme groom’s cake, heirloom jewelry, handmade centerpieces and a high-energy string band added to intimate, joyful atmosphere—and as for a ceremony backdrop, you can’t do much better than blue Lake Conroe sparkling in the background. Happiest wishes to the newlyweds!

Las Vegas Wedding with Cocktails, Dancing and…Bowling!

“We were in Las Vegas celebrating my 25th birthday with my family, and what I thought was going to be a regular day turned out completely different. Every time we had been to Las Vegas we always said we wanted to go to the top of the Stratosphere hotel, but it never happened, so this time we were determined to make it happen. I was pumped because I thought it would be hilarious to see him on top of the Stratosphere (he is terrified of heights), plus they have rides on top! When we started to go up the elevator he looked so nervous I started to feel bad, but he was persistent on going all the way to the top. When we got up there we were able to see all of the Las Vegas strip and the beautiful desert. As we were leaning over the edge he starts talking about the future and then mentions something about a hot air balloon, which grabs my attention, and all of a sudden I turn around and he is on one knee with a box in hand.” With a proposal story like that, it’s no wonder Houston couple Candice and Joshua chose to return to the scene of their engagement to make it official. Their Las Vegas celebration at the Palms Casino Resort’s Kingpin Suite is the very picture of vintage Vegas glamour and fun, and we’re so thrilled to have a chance to share it with y’all. Big thanks to Houston’s Adam Nyholt for the fabulous pix of this destination celebration. And congrats to the newlyweds!
