Blush, Mint & Cream Vintage Wedding by Kreative Angle Photography

Vintage candleabras, lanterns, lace overlays, vintage vases, and a soft color palette of blush, mint, cream and lush greens are what defined Anna and George’s dreamy, vintage wedding. If you think the décor sounds to die for, wait ‘til you hear about the delish menu! The guests indulged in pistachio-crusted Redfish and New York strip au jus with horseradish cream (mmm) from Café Natalie. We hope you enjoy the beautiful photos from Anna and George’s wedding as much as we do. Thanks Kreative Angle Photography and congrats to the newlyweds!

Tops Malibu Heart Sparkler Wands

Don’t bore your guests with a wedding favor that they’ll either toss or store for years without using. Surprise your guests with a wedding favor that both adults and children enjoy! Wedding sparklers have become so popular with our Houston brides and here’s why: you can start off by using them as cake & dessert toppers and use it later to make your grand exit even more glamorous. Sparklers can turn a classic first kiss or first dance into a magical moment on your wedding and make the photos even more memorable!

Red, Black and Gold Winter Wedding at the Magnolia Hotel by DC Stanley Photography

How’s THIS for a proposal story? “It was a night of reliving ‘firsts’—a Rockets game (our first official meeting), dinner at Vic & Anthony’s (our first official date), drinks at Hotel Zaza…,” says bride Brie Anna. “On a balcony overlooking the Museum District, he surprised me with a hand-drawn charcoal portrait of the two of us. The entire portrait was black and white, EXCEPT for a canary-yellow diamond engagement ring placed on my ring finger within the picture. My eyes were instantly drawn to the yellow image and I turned to find Craig down on one knee!” The couple’s December wedding, with its Catholic church ceremony and “lounge-feel” Magnolia Hotel reception—“NO traditional seating—cocktail-style vignettes and comfortable couches,” the bride recounts—captured the festiveness of the season, as did the surprise “flash mob” organized for the groom! Congratulations to the happy couple, and thanks to DC Stanley Photography for the fantastic photos of the fabulous winter wedding.

A Memorable Event Hosts Two Top Wedding Celebs

Earlier this week, hot Houston decor, floral and fine-event-rentals outfit A Memorable Event hosted celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss and famed international floral designer Jeff Leatham, along with a selection of Houston’s top event professionals and media…and WHAT a memorable event it was. We were thrilled to attend this lovely luncheon and design showcase (yup, that’s a picture of our very own Radhika Day, founder and publisher of Weddings in Houston, cozied up to the brilliant Jeff Leatham). And, after all, who wouldn’t be? Both Weiss (wedding planner to stars including Adam Sandler, Eva Longoria, Jessica Simpson and MANY more) and Leatham (artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris and author of “Jeff Leatham: Visionary Art and Floral Design,” among other gorgeous flower-focused books) spoke extensively about their lives, work and approaches to event design. And WE ate it up. Along with lots of yumminess from the talented catering crew at the Westin Galleria, host hotel for this fabulous event. As for the floral and tabletop displays? WOW. Just…WOW. Thanks so much to the wonderful staff of A Memorable Event for a fantastic day of inspiration, elegance and knowledge!

A Taste of Old Mexico, Dressed Up Like Texas: Republic Tequila

Photos: Republic Tequila

Mexican tradition meets Texan ingenuity in the sweetest lil’ ol’ tequila bottle we’ve ever seen–or sipped from (c’mon now, y’all didn’t think we were just looking at it, did ya?). Republic Tequila pairs time-honored cultivation practices with innovative technology to coax the complex flavors of the magnificent blue agave plant into award-winning tequilas. AND it comes in the perfect size Texas-shaped bottle, making it a great item for grownup wedding favors, or as a part of an in-room guest gift for visiting friends and family, or for your bachelor or bachelorette getaway. Sample Republic Tequila yourself, with this Classic Diablo cocktail recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 ounces of Republic Plata Tequila
  • 4 ounces ginger ale
  • 1/2 ounce Chambord
  • Half of a fresh lime

Directions:

Pour tequila and ginger ale in a rocks glass filled with ice. Top with Chambord and squeeze in fresh lime. Mix and garnish with a lime wedge and enjoy!
