Gray and Yellow Sam Houston Hotel Wedding by Adam Nyholt

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

Some Houston brides want floral abundance and frilly linens. Some want crystals and chandeliers. And some, like Suzanne, want to keep things casual yet chic. “We wanted our wedding to be modern and simple,” she explains. For her Houston wedding to Jason at the historic Sam Houston Hotel’s cool, contemporary Veranda by *17 terrace space, interior designer Suzanne stuck to minimal yellow and gray decor, along with passed heavy hors d’oeuvre and no assigned seats. “We wanted it to be a party! Everyone had a great time celebrating with us, with lots of dancing.” Plus, she adds, “Actually getting Jason to dance was great!” Cheers to the fun-loving couple, and big thanks to photographer Adam Nyholt for the fab photos of this unique and lovely Sam Houston Hotel wedding.

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

Anyone who’s experienced the I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian knows how much our amazing Houston wedding florists and decorators love to fill that neoclassical column-lined space up with lots of white, cream and ivory wedding finery. So we’re THRILLED to share with you Mary and Adrian’s Houston wedding, which transforms The Corinthian with an explosion of color. Inspired by the 1920s, the pair’s wedding included Art Deco touches throughout, plus lavish jewel-tone flowers by Events in Bloom, and a magnificent menu from Jackson and Company. “Emily, our wedding planner, also put a Champagne bar in the women’s bathroom,” notes the bride. “Needless to say, that was a favorite among the guests.” Feast your eyes on J. Cogliandro Photography’s images of this bright and beautiful Houston wedding, and join us in wishing Mary and Adrian a lifetime of happiness.

Pink, Orange, Lime, Turquoise Country Chic Wedding by Lindsay Elizabeth Photography

Friday, June 28th, 2013

“An elegant, fun, country-Aggie wedding with tons of personalized touches” is how Alaina describes her wedding to former high-school sweetheart James. “On the tables, we had hearts made out of horseshoes that my 84-year-old grandfather made. For wedding favors we had ‘Lovin’ Me Some Lava Cakes’ in mason jars. We also had ‘Pinking of You Lemonade’ served in mason jars with old-fashioned striped paper straws for the kids. We even had personalized WANTED-poster gift bags for the youngest party-goers. Highlights were the gorgeous flowers, the nonstop dancing, and the photo booth which was so much fun!” And we’ve had nothing but fun fawning over Lindsay Elizabeth Photography’s pretty pix of this bright, beautiful spring wedding. Enjoy!

Pink and Gray Briscoe Manor Wedding by Lindsay Elizabeth Photography

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Man’s best friend…or man’s best proposal ruse? You be the judge! Houston bride Kay explains: “We were out walking our Great Dane Nali like we usually do in the evenings, when she started getting into something in the grass. Nate made me worry and was saying, ‘What does she have?’ but it was dark so it was hard to tell. When she finally ‘dropped’ it, I still couldn’t make out what it was, so I was poking at this thing on the ground…which turned out to be a ring box! I fell to my knees and started crying—not your typical dog walk!” Sweet Nali the Great Dane made yet another appearance in Kay and Nate’s love story, as ring-bearer at their spring wedding at Briscoe Manor. Here’s a glimpse at the festivities, in the bride’s words: “Our first dance was to Ray LaMontange’s ‘Hold You in My Arms,’ followed by a father-daughter dance to ‘My Girl” by The Temptations. Then came a surprise mother-son dance from Nate, who had practiced the dance from ‘Pulp Fiction’ with his mom! That was quite the treat considering Nate isn’t much of a dancer, especially when all eyes are on him. After lots of food including a phenomenal brownie bar, breaking it down to the Harlem shake, a bouquet toss to Beyoncé’s ‘All The Single Ladies’ and a garter toss with Nate’s 80-something-year-old uncle diving for the garter, we wrapped things up with a fireworks show and departed into a classic Rolls-Royce to Hotel ZaZa for the night!” We are loving Lindsay Elizabeth’s joyful photos of this warm and wonderful Houston wedding. Happiest wishes to Kay and Nate…and lovely Nali, too!
