Peach, Pink and Gold Wedding at The Houstonian by J. Cogliandro Photography

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Ashley had been bugging Rick to plan the perfect date night, and that he did. Rick made dinner reservations at one of their favorite restaurants. Even when were then seated at a table with a dozen roses and a bottle of wine, Ashley still didn’t suspect anything. After all, they were low-key, private people–it never occurred to her that Rick would propose in public. But as soon as they were done with their meal, the restaurant’s manager personally presented the couple with dessert under a cloche cover. When Ashley removed the cloche, she discovered a ring box, and, well, let’s just say it turned out to be a date night she’d never forget. Ashley and Rick’s opulent wedding at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa was a dream come true. “We ended up creating exactly what we wanted, a very festive and romantic atmosphere with a classic feel that recognized the importance of the moment”,” the bride says. Tall pink and peach candelabras, and hanging candles above the dance floor, added the perfect touch of romance and elegance to the evening. Thanks J. Cogliandro for the beautiful photos, and congrats to the newlyweds!

Lavender and Coral Wedding at Agave Estates

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

It was a normal shift for Jeremiah at the retail store he worked at until Melissa walked in. Melissa lost her keys and the nice guy that Jeremiah was, he decided to help. He spent an hour with Melissa trying to search the store for her keys. After they found them, Jeremiah jokingly told Melissa she owed him dinner. “I laughed it off and drove off… but it was a Saturday night and I was thinking, ‘I’m just going home to do nothing, what do I have to lose?’ So I called back and asked him to dinner. We went…and the rest is history,” says Melissa. We are sure you’ll instantly fall in love with their rustic-elegant wedding at Agave Estates, because we definitely did. Thanks FireHeart Photography for the lovely pics and congrats to the newlyweds!

Hindu-American Wedding by Akil Bennett Photography

Monday, February 9th, 2015

“It was very important to us that our wedding day reflect both of our cultural heritages and traditions. We are thrilled we were able to incorporate two very different ceremonies into one (very long) day!” says bride, Becky. The Hindu marriage ceremony took place in the morning at the Omni Houston Hotel, “Starting with a boisterous barat procession with Aneesh along with his family and friends joyously dancing their way to the mandap (marriage pavilion), and ending with an Indian feast for lunch,” adds Becky. The Catholic ceremony was held that same evening (yes, that same day) where Becky wore a stunning lace Martina Liana gown from Brickhouse Bridal. Becky and Aneesh wanted to transform their reception venue into a small Tuscan village in the Italian countryside. “Between the bouquets of peonies and hydrangeas, the candles that filled the room with a soft glow, the tables named after Italian places close to our hearts, the Prosecco and Chianti that flowed throughout the evening, and the delectable Italian dinner, we truly felt transported,” says Becky. If you think their wedding sounds beautiful, just wait ‘til you see the pics! Thank you Akil Bennett for the fabulous photos and congrats to the newlyweds!
