Classic Sunset Lakeside Wedding by Kreative Angle Photography

It pays to exercise! Just ask bride Katie, who fell in love with future groom David when the two started working out together in training for a triathlon. “We became good friends, and later did a half marathon together,” Katie tells us. “An engagement was soon to follow…and now so is a baby girl!” We’re so happy for newlyweds, and so delighted to share with you their Woodlands Resort & Conference Center wedding, shot by the very talented Huz Abdul of Kreative Angle Photography. Simple and elegant, with champagne, mocha and navy accent colors and a focus on the beautiful Woodlands Resort surroundings—we are charmed by this sweet wedding and the wonderful couple who shared it with us. Congratulations, Katie and David!

High-Glamour Black-and-Silver Hotel ZaZa Wedding With Canine Friend

We’re just so tickled to be able to show y’all the wedding of Andrea and Alessandro—such a beautiful couple, such a magnificent celebration. The two met a Sunday Funday brunch…and ended up chatting ’til midnight that day. It wasn’t long until the pair realized they were madly in love, and eventually Alessandro proposed to his lovely bride on a trip to San Francisco.  “On our second day, after an afternoon biking around Sausalito, he took me to an amazing mountain top for the sunset,” Andrea recounts. “Just as the sun was setting, he got down on one knee and proposed with the spectacular view of San Francisco behind him. It truly was the most amazing day!” Though perhaps not quite as amazing as the day the two tied the knot, with a church ceremony followed by a dazzling black-white-and-silver celebration at downtown Houston’s Hotel ZaZa. The silver-and-crystal candelabra, the dramatic feather accents, the sleek white dance floor—everything about this wedding exuded glamour and drama. Everything, that is, except for the awesome photo-booth fun that was a highlight of the wedding for guests and newlyweds alike, which exuded sheer joy and whimsy. If you’re wondering how Andrea put together such a spectacular wedding, she says she found “90%” of her vendors on her one-day visit to the I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta (where, incidentally, she was also the lucky winner of our Kindle Fire giveaway—BONUS!). We’re so thankful to Andrea and Alessandro for sharing their special day—big thanks too to photographer Rachel Robinson for sharing her terrific pix.

Vintage Elegant Hotel Galvez Wedding by Joshua Tyi Photography

There’s something so darn timeless and captivating about Shaw and Kael’s morning wedding at Galveston’s historic Hotel Galvez. Everything from the wash of coastal light to the vintage-inspired palette of warm golden brown and bright poppy red to the charmingly attired couple themselves is picture-perfect. Here’s something else that was perfect: the groom’s acknowledgement of the the day’s precious moments. “One thing I really appreciated was that throughout the day Kael would stop me and say, ‘Let’s remember this moment,’ which was a nice way to slow down and not forget anything important amidst a busy, emotional day,” explains Shaw. Grooms: Take note! Everyone else, take a moment to savor this delightful Galveston wedding, with fabulous photos courtesy of Houston-based Joshua Tyi Photography.

Classic, Romantic Agave Road Wedding by Select Studios

Oh, how we love a bride who doesn’t sweat the small stuff. Of course, Liliana could have had a breakdown when she realized she’d forgotten the bag containing all her makeup, her spare shoes and her hair accessory back at the hotel where she’d gotten prepped. And sure, she could have given in to the frustration of dealing with a verrrry fussy bustle on her beautiful Pronovias gown. But, at she says, “At the end of the day, you just have to laugh and go with it!” We couldn’t agree more. Instead of focusing on glitches, our lovely bride decided to focus on Jesus, her handsome groom, and the 220 loving guests gathered at Agave Road to celebrate the couple’s union until 2 a.m., when the newlyweds departed for a few hours of shuteye before a 6 a.m. flight to their St. Lucia honeymoon. Thank you, Liliana, for the lesson in gracious bride-ing—and for sharing your picture-perfect Select Studios wedding photos, and joyful story, with us!

Texture Filled Fall Wedding at Houston’s Briscoe Manor

College sweethearts, a Christmas day proposal, a fabulous fall wedding at Houston’s Briscoe Manor—color us charmed. Bride Eva says that for her wedding to Carlo, “textures were a priority,” which is why you see them everywhere from the cool cork table-number holders to Floriography’s architectural apple-and-sunflower table arrangements, to Edible Designs by Jessie’s tree-bark wedding cake, to guests’ gridded “Stroopwafel” cookie favors. We love the contrast of all those earthy, autumnal shades and motifs to glamorous bride Eva’s glittering brooch bouquet and sky-high gold sparkle platforms. Congratulations to the newlyweds, and big thanks to Cornerstone Photography for the pix!
