What’s the only thing better than taking a photo next to the SOLD sign in front of your very first “together home?” Um, that’d be when your longtime boyfriend, and co-habitant in that together home, drops down on one knee in front of said sign and pops the question! That’s the love story of Kelsy and Marco, who first met at a Houston restaurant one fine winter day back in 2011, introduced by mutual friends. Their Christmastime wedding took place on yet another fine winter day, in the presence of 150 loved ones, at elegant ranch-style venue, Briscoe Manor. Click here to read the rest of this post »

This Houston Party Band Totally Rocks!

We’d like to take a moment to introduce you to The Moment, a Houston party band with a very special gift for turning wedding receptions into totally unforgettable dance-all-night bashes!!

Heading up a nine-piece outfit of accomplished, versatile musicians who truly love what they do, Scott Sofer is a master MC and an expert at “reading the room.” Not only will this amazing Houston party band get your guests on their feet, but they’ll take them through a journey of fun, from first introductions to last waltz (or rhumba, or boogie, or electric slide…you get the picture!). We can’t say enough good stuff about this superb wedding band, who can shift seamlessly from Queen to Daft Punk to Al Green and countless other beloved artists, all while making every guest feel comfortable, energized and eager for more! This is NOT your mother’s party band, friends. The Moment brings a club gig experience to your big day, in the absolute coolest way. Give them a call or email them to schedule a consultation, and find out more about who they are, what they do, and how they can ensure that your guests will be talking about your wedding for years to come. And make sure to tell them you found them at Weddings in Houston!

Magnolia Hotel $750 “Romance Getaway” GIVEAWAY

magnolia hotel houston romance weekend giveaway exterior downtown

The Magnolia Hotel Houston is not just one of our favorite downtown venues for sophisticated, cosmopolitan weddings…it’s also the sponsor of this week’s fabulous $750 “Romance Getaway” GIVEAWAY!

Nestled in the heart of downtown Houston, just across the street from stately Christ Church Cathedral, the Magnolia Hotel blends Houston history with contemporary elegance in a one-of-a-kind setting. Major renovations to the hotel, completed earlier this year, take their design inspiration from the building’s history as a former newspaper/radio conglomerate. A 1926 historic landmark, this Marriott Tribute Portfolio property is the former home of the Houston Post Dispatch newspaper, and, later, the corporate offices of Shell Oil Co. Today, you’ll find a “Texas Parlor” atmosphere at the Magnolia, with an “ink-inspired” palette of dark charcoals and deep indigos contrasted with gleaming wood surfaces and distinctive ironwork.
