Choosing a wedding planner is not an easy task for most brides. But it’s one of the most important decisions you can make, soon after you get engaged. Just ask Houston fashion and lifestyle blogger Esmerelda Estrada of popular Houston blog Dessert For Brunch, who made hiring a wedding planner a priority after saying “Yes!” to her fiancé Henry this past October. In this guest post—the first in a series from Esmerelda as she makes her way toward “I do” in 2020, the bride-to-be explains how and why she chose her wedding planner, including her Number One deciding factor.

“Planning a wedding is a lot of work. And it can be especially difficult to do if you don’t have a lot of free time. Which is where a professional wedding planner comes in. Many of you might be wondering, “Where do I find the best Houston wedding planner for my wedding?” “How do I know whom to choose to organize and plan my wedding?” Trust me, I was there, too. Today I am here to tell you about my experience with choosing a wedding planner, and how I went about it. Click here to read the rest of this post »

Following a $30-million post-Hurricane Harvey renovation, the Omni Houston Hotel is back, and better than ever! A longtime favorite for elegant Houston wedding celebrations, the Omni Houston’s new look is all about cosmopolitan Houston sophistication, with a nod to the city’s surrounding natural landscape. We’re in love with natural wood, leather, brass and chic greenery that are on view everywhere you look at the new Omni!

Texan Elegance Wedding From Haute Flowers

“If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was meant to be,” says recent bride Kara, and she knows what she’s talking about. After attending elementary school with Kyle, and dating him throughout high school, the two graduated, and she remained in Texas while he went off to Florida. And, that, they may have figured, was that. Except it wasn’t. Eight years later the two reunited in Houston after not speaking to one another since starting college. And from there, well, let’s just say, neither was willing to set the other quite so free again. The couple chose a “Texan elegance” theme for their wedding celebration, which kicked off with a rehearsal dinner at The Houstonian Hotel’s lovely Manor House. The following day, an intimate outdoor ceremony preceded a food-focused reception where guests feasted on game specialties and fine wine, surrounded by fresh, rustic-elegant blush and sage flowers and decor from League City’s Haute Flowers & Events. We’re grateful to Kara and Kyle for sharing their lesson in love–and their wonderful Houston wedding–with us, and with y’all. Congratulations, you two, and may your lives be filled with love!
