{4 Seasons of Wedding WOW: Tablescapes for Spring, Summer, Winter & Fall}
 

When we gathered together a selection of super-talented Houston wedding florists, decorators and stylists at coveted Downtown venue the Corinthian-Houston and asked them to create wedding reception table designs that embody the spirit of each of the four seasons…well…we knew we were in for something special. Fortunately, fabulous photographer Taylor Golden was on hand to capture the seasonal magic, which we’re sharing with you right here in this bountiful blog post! Love what you see? Pin it, Instagram it, share it, love it, let us know!

{We Can’t Get Enough Sweet Stuff From Wink by Erica!}
 

Wink By Erica Houston Wedding Cakes Photo: Wink by Erica

You guys, WHEW, what a week!! Follow ups and photo sharing with our incredible guests from last week’s I Do! Wedding Soiree, gathering gorgeous items and putting together some truly awesome photo shoots to show off in our uh-mazing new issue (hitting newsstands right after Xmas), running hither and thither to trunk shows and open houses…it’s been nuts…in a great way. So, as we slide on in to the weekend, and THREE WHOLE DAYS of World Series Astros baseball (!!!), we wanted to take a little time out to share something sweet with you. Namely: Wink by Erica.

Who’s Erica, you ask, and why is she winking?? Well, this lovely native Houstonian and UT alum happens to be an absolute genius baker and dessert designer, and she’s probably winking because in less than a year on the local cakes & desserts scene (it’s a thing, look it up), she’s already a rising star and media darling. And with good reason. Her wedding cakes are gorgeous to behold and sublime to devour, her macarons are magnifique, and her custom donut towers, styled dessert tables and take-home treat favors are absolutely divine.

Seriously, loves, when it comes to dessert artistry, this gal’s the real deal. Do yourself a favor, give her a call and find out exactly what she can do for the most important wedding in Houston…YOURS!

{Mediterranean Wedding Style + Houston Landmark Status at The Parador}
 

Carolyn-Kipper-Photography Photo: Carolyn Kipper

It’s rare to find genuine historical landmark status and room for 500 of your nearest and dearest in one Houston wedding venue, but The Parador packs both…plus so much more. Just a few reasons why we love this Museum District icon:

Architectural Details Galore: With its Mediterranean-style arches and brickwork, Byzantine design details and 35-foot-high domed ceiling, The Parador offers a true “WOW” experience from the moment guests first arrive. And the photo ops at this circa-1928 gem? Unbeatable!

Location, Location, Location: Nestled in Houston’s chic Museum District, The Parador is steps away from swank boutique hotels, fine restaurants, and some of the country’s most esteemed cultural institutions, including the Menil Collection, Houston Museum of African-American Culture and the world-renowned Children’s Museum of Houston. Make sure to include a map and recommendations in your guests’ hotel-room welcome basket.

A Delicious Celebration: Not just a pretty face, The Parador is also a superb place for feasting in style. Preferred caterers at this top Houston wedding venue include Jackson and Company and Cordua Catering–two of the city’s most acclaimed culinary experts, guaranteeing you and your guests the wedding celebration of a lifetime.

With cache like this, The Parador books quickly, so schedule your visit today, and start planning your one-of-a-kind Houston wedding at one of the city’s most coveted landmark event venues!
