Las Vegas Wedding with Houstonian Bride, English Groom and French Proposal, by Ama Photography & Cinema
 

Houston-raised Eva met Leeds, U.K.-based Phil at a fish fry in the Bahamas, where she was on vacation and he was on a contract diving project. And that’s just the beginning of their international love story. While rock climbing together in southern France’s Pyrenees Mountains, Phil surprised Eva with a Champagne picnic—and a Jimi-Hendrix-accompanied proposal. Not long after, the pair joined 28 friends and close family members in Las Vegas, where they said their lifelong vows—the bride’s daughter escorting her down the aisle, much to everyone’s joy—and celebrated in intimate style at the retro-chic Barrymore. Evocative photos from Ama Photography & Cinema speak to the warmth and elegance of the occasion—one that will be forever cherished by Eva and Phil. Cheers!

Intimate Petroleum Club Wedding by Steve Lee Weddings
 

While “iPhone meets Frank Sinatra” might not seem like your typical wedding theme, Amy and Robbie’s Houston nuptial celebration was anything but your typical wedding. The couple, who met at work and got engaged in the moments after the groom disembarked from a plane after traveling 30-plus hours, wanted their spring wedding to have “modern, clean lines” and a “jazzy, cool feel,” Amy says. Hinging on a palette of deep purple, silver, white and black, they infused the vintage-elegant Petroleum Club of Houston with a sleek, clubby feel—the perfect environment in which to enjoy excellent food and dancing with an intimate group of fewer than 90 close friends and family members. And the bride’s Martina Liana gown (accented with the silver ribbon sash) and purple-calla bouquet? Perfection. Cheers to the exceptionally talented Steve Lee for the fabulous photos of this retro-meets-right-now wedding.

Pink and Navy Petroleum Club of Houston Wedding
 

A wedding ceremony is a dramatic occasion—and the vista of downtown Houston, visible via the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Petroleum Club of Houston’s 43rd-floor Discovery Room, is the perfect backdrop for such a scene. Just ask Houston bride Annie, who said her vows to Antonio there, then danced up a storm with 280 friends and family members in celebration of her blessed union. Sweet couple, beautiful wedding, what more could one ask for? Oh—and cheers to Love Lee Photography for the lovely photography

Sanctuary at Water Oak Wedding with Crystals, Cigars, Whiskey and Canine Friends
 

It wasn’t until her dad encouraged her to speak to cute ranch-hand Nathan (“my dad, who NEVER encouraged his daughters to date,” she laughs), that Louisiana-born Abbie took a second look at the shy guy who worked on her family’s hunting lease. And she liked what she saw. So much so, that when Nathan dropped on one knee and presented her with that unmistakable Tiffany box in November of last year, “I just threw my arms around him and of course I said, ‘Yes!!’” The couple’s summer wedding, coordinated by Gray & Associates Events at Lake Conroe’s picturesque Sanctuary at Water Oak served up Southern favorites including seafood bisque and blackened catfish, along with hand-rolled cigars, a swank whiskey bar, and lots of lively dancing. The pair’s pups Ellie and Boozer were on hand to watch the couple say their vows, and if there ever were two sweeter flower girls than the tulle-frocked cuties at Abbie’s side, we don’t know how or where. Thanks so much, Abbie and Nathan, for sharing your joy with us and our brides. Thanks, too, to Jenna Christine, for the selections of fine photos!

Modern Silver and Fuchsia Persian-Lebanese-American Wedding from Weddings by Alefiya
 

Here’s what Halleh wanted for her Houston wedding: “Modern, chic, multicultural and FUN (not boring)!” So here’s what she did NOT have: “Traditional bridesmaids, groomsmen, registries or a traditional wedding dress.” Instead, she and Nano went for modern flowers—courtesy of Houston Wedding Blog fave Plants N’ Petals—a cool photo booth from Jonny Black Productions and a delish DIY (dip it yourself) chocolate fountain. The bride’s Persian and American heritages were featured, as was the groom’s Lebanese background. And everyone had fun, fun, fun ‘til the wee hours. Don’t take our word for it—check out our wonderful photos from Weddings by Alefiya, which document this stylish couple and sensational celebration in all its beauty and joy. Congratulations all around!
