Classic Wedding with a Charitable Heart by Lindsay Elizabeth Photography

“When Michael proposed, we started wondering where to find the right venue for us,” recounts Houston bride Carolyn. “Fortunately we thought about the Brookwood Community, a wonderful residential organization right outside of Katy, where adults with disabilities can thrive and learn to contribute meaningfully. My mother and I had often eaten in the café there and we loved to volunteer with the organization.” Carolyn explains that the Brookwood Community had only recently started hosting weddings—and she was thrilled to be among the first to take advantage of the community’s “beautiful worship center” and lovely, sunlight-filled café space. In her diaphanous Watters gown from Mia Bridal Couture, Carolyn made her wedding dreams come true, with a timeless summer celebration filled with personal photos, handmade signs and touches of blue, purple and green. The best part? “The profits from the wedding went to a scholarship fund to help residents live at the Brookwood Community. We were so grateful to have a wedding that benefitted a cause—and we enjoyed that we didn’t compromise on anything to host it there!” Congratulations, and happiest wishes to Carolyn and Michael. And big thanks to Lindsay Elizabeth Photography for the lovely, lovely photos!

Tradition-Filled Indian Wedding by C. Baron Photography

Sometimes we come across a wedding whose images are so rich with color and texture, so rippling with life and tradition, so gorgeously representative of the details of the celebration, we kinda just need to let them speak for themselves. Hence the wedding of Ranjita and Suchin, held at Safari Texas and filled with north and south Indian touchstones and influences, representing the pair’s individual cultural backgrounds and families. Great thanks to C. Baron Photography for sharing these wondrous images, and happiest wishes to the newlyweds. The rest of y’all, just sit back, scroll down, and be wowed.

Sumptuous La Colombe d’Or Wedding by J. Cogliandro Photography

They may both be medical residents now, embarking on brilliant careers and a life as husband and wife. But it wasn’t all that long ago that Rebecca and Meng were 9th graders, encountering each other for the first time—or high-school seniors attending homecoming on their first date. With so much history to their relationship, it isn’t surprising that they chose a Houston wedding venue steeped in history—La Colombe d’Or, with its magnificent 18th-century carved wood panels and extensive art collection—for their grand celebration. Opulent, but not overdone. Formal, but not stuffy. And absolutely, ultimately first-class all the way, Rebecca and Meng’s special day is a Houston wedding classic. And we couldn’t be more thrilled for them. Happiest wishes to the couple, and huge thanks to J. Cogliandro Photography for the heirloom-quality photos of this one-for-the-ages affair.

Texas-Chic Briscoe Manor Wedding by Katie Lamb Photography

Gritty, rough-and-tumble sports brought them together—they were both college athletes, and they bonded over Michigan State ice hockey games while the two were students there—but Julie and Jeff’s summer wedding was no grungy affair. Quite the opposite. With its palette of cream, green, neutrals and soft pinks, and wrought-iron accents and glowing candles, the couple’s Briscoe Manor celebration is a study in refined rustic elegance…Houston-style! Check out the custom “brand,” the his-n-hers boots, and the getaway Rolls, natch. Oh—and don’t those b-maid shots just make you want to procure some parasols for your big day pix? Big thanks to Katie Lamb for the lovely shots. And happiest wishes to the newlyweds!

Pretty Minute Maid Park Wedding by J. Cogliandro Photography

She was the girl, he told a friend, he “thought he could never get.” He was the guy who won her heart with a turkey-and-green-olive sandwich (“It was genius!” she says). When the two longtime lovebirds finally made it official, Union Station at Houston Astros’ home Minute Maid Park was the perfect location for “obsessed” sports fan Lindsay and her equally enthusiastic groom Michael. Floral firm Events in Bloom filled the grand, historic space with hanging greenery and glowing candles, complemented the room’s stately columns, uplit in warm shades of amber. Extra kudos to Nadine Moon of Who Made the Cake…who made a cake we can NOT stop talking about, complete with a bottom layer in a subtle white-on-white interpretation of Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpiece “The Starry Night”—“my favorite art piece of all time,” Lindsay says. Huge thanks to international-award-winning J. Cogliandro Photography for superb pix of this wonderful wedding…and warmest wishes to the newlyweds!
