The lovebirds tied the knot in the venue’s charming garden room. “The room has a beautiful fountain in the center that makes you feel like you’re outside,” says Maggie.

White, Gold, Champagne & Green Wedding at The Houstonian Hotel

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Mona and Aamir are what we like to call a jet-setting couple. They met in New York City, he proposed in Chicago, and they got married in Houston! Their multicultural wedding weekend went a little something like this: It started with a mehndi—a South Asian ritual ceremony with henna and dancing followed by an intimate nikkah—a Muslim wedding ceremony—at home.

The last day of their nuptial celebrations was a lavish Persian wedding ceremony at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. “It was held in the Grande Ballroom which truly captured the essence of the sophisticated feel we were going for,” says Mona.

Dream Bouquet decked out the reception with tall white and lush green floral centerpieces and placed green boxwood panels on the walls to add an outdoorsy touch to the decor.

Blush, Coral & Gold Hill Country Wedding at The Terrace Club

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Houston bride Vanessa and her groom, Luis, dreamed of a sunset wedding in Texas Hill Country, and just knew The Terrace Club would be the perfect location. “Our wedding day was a dream come true for us and our family,” says the bride. “We were so detailed in every aspect because we wanted it to be special, and The Terrace Club understood our vision.” Their Hill Country wedding was decidedly glam, complete with gold glitter accents, wine barrels topped with gold candelabras, and string lights leading out from the altar.

“My most memorable moment was when we snuck off in the middle of the reception to take some pictures outside. Luis twirled me like a princess in my dress…it was like a scene straight from a fairytale,” Vanessa recounts.

Fuchsia, Lavender & Peach Wedding at The Gallery

Friday, May 19th, 2017

Rachel and Zach were married on her parent’s anniversary at The Gallery, so they incorporated different elements that gave little nods to that blessed event, and to her Louisiana roots. “I wore my mom’s veil, and Café Natalie created a menu that was full of Cajun cuisine with crab-stuffed mushrooms and blackened Cajun fish with dirty rice,” she adds.

“I wanted our wedding to feel soft, intimate, slightly vintage and romantic,” says the bride, pointing to elements including lace, mercury glass, candles and soft spring colors like fuchsia, lavender and peach.

“Some of my favorite moments were making eye contact with my teary-eyed groom at the end of the aisle, our first dance, toasting to my parent’s 34th anniversary and dancing to Pharrell’s song ‘Happy,’” says Rachel.

Shabby-Chic Blush, Gold & Cream Wedding by Kelly Hornberger

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

They say if you have to invite your best friend to your wedding, you’re marrying the wrong person. We know that Houston bride Caroline agrees! “Austin and I were best friends for two years before we started dating in 8th grade. We’ve always loved each other, but were hesitant of it potentially ruining our friendship. We took a leap of faith and decided to follow our hearts.”

When it came time to propose, Austin knew the perfect way to catch her completely off guard. It was his birthday, and Caroline wanted to surprise him with a birthday dinner… little did she know that she was the one in for a treat! As soon as they arrived to the restaurant, Caroline and Austin were led to the back, where she thought all of their family and friends would be—no one was there, and the room was filled with decorations and pictures of them. “I was so shocked, but thought it was all planned for him and I just hadn’t gotten get the memo,” adds Caroline. He showed her a sweet video he made for her, got down on one knee and asked Caroline to spend forever with him.

Her favorite moments? “Reading our personal vows to each other from behind either sides of a door holding hands, and dancing with my dad and my mom,” says Caroline. Thanks, Kelly Hornberger Photography, for the beautiful photos!
