Emily and Nicolas met when Nicolas was overseeing a soccer league and training the kids Emily was a nanny to. He was known as the “Hot Cuban Soccer Coach” and she was called “Romper Girl” because Emily started dressing cuter in hopes of Nicolas noticing her…and it worked! “I knew from almost the first moment that he would be my husband.” On Sept. 10, 2019, Nicolas proposed to Emily with a beautiful custom designed oval solitaire ring on a beach in Costa Maya in the presence of his family.
Emily, being a fabulous wedding photographer, has seen countless variations of color palettes, themes and ideas, so for her very own wedding she notes, “I wanted to mix in the slightest bit of boho in our otherwise modern and simplistic wedding theme. We ended up with touches of black to contrast the neutrals, white, champagne and blush.” The couple said their vows amidst 80 loved ones in an intimate al fresco ceremony before commencing with a joyous indoor reception. The biggest obstacle the couple faced while planning their fall wedding was “Just trying to make sure that, even during Covid, we were being as safe as possible, but still got to have the wedding of our dreams. It was so tiring planning the wedding, but when the wedding day finally came, none of it mattered and it was the most beautiful and perfect day!”

After finding their vendors at Weddings In Houston’s I Do! Soiree in 2019, high school sweethearts and soulmates, Brittan and Grant chose the chic, modern Hotel ZaZa Houston Museum District for their elegant fall wedding.
The couple celebrated their nuptials in iconic ZaZa style, surrounded by a timeless palette of white, gold and black. “Our wedding was very classic; white flowers, gold touches and a mixture of dark effects from the ZaZa Phantom Ballroom flooring,” notes the bride. “The hallway had portraits of us lining the walls—a ZaZa touch that we loved!” A delicious meal and cake with Bavarian cream filling by Susie’s Cakes fueled the newlyweds and their 225 guests for an evening of dancing on a black and white striped dance floor beneath an enormous chandelier.
We’re so happy to feature this sweet Houston couple and their gorgeous white, gold and black classic wedding, beautifully captured by Stephania Campos. Congratulations, Brittan & Grant!
Easton and Morghann met in 2012 while Morghann was attending college in Arizona. However, their time together in Arizona was brief because Morghann moved back to Texas to be closer to her family. After six months of a long-distance relationship, Easton visited Morghann for her birthday…and never left! Eight years and a romantic proposal later, Morghann walked down a custom monogrammed white aisle runner to say ‘I do’ to Easton amidst 185 loved ones.
For the reception, the couple added an edgy, modern touch to their venue’s french setting, with a bold palette of black and neutral tones and many personal touches.“There were so many touches to personalize the guest experience,” says the bride. “We had a black-tie event and everyone loved being able to dress up for the night and have a wonderful night out.” The celebratory evening concluded with the newlyweds exiting under a shower of sparklers then enjoying a spectacular fireworks display.“The firework show was a special moment we loved sharing with our guests!”

Amanda and Andrew met in 2012 while attending a Texas Christian University football game where they both went to school. Fast-track to six years later: While on a trip in New York City, Amanda’s favorite city, Andrew arranged a surprise of a lifetime during a carriage ride through Central Park…a proposal!
For their summer wedding, the couple chose the modern and sophisticated Hotel ZaZa Memorial City as their wedding venue: “Hotel ZaZa was amazing to work with!” says the bride. Amanda and Andrew tied the knot in a traditional Jewish ceremony beneath a gorgeous chuppah adorned with fresh white flowers, beautifully designed by Plants N’ Petals. For their ballroom reception, “The theme was modern with black, white and metallic highlights,” featuring lush floral centerpieces, chic black tablecloths and oversized crystal chandeliers, all anchored by a gleaming black and white dance floor with dramatic uplighting. Guests indulged in a six-tier amaretto cake with white buttercream frosting and a cookies and cream groom’s cake in the shape of Texas with the TCU logo, both from Cakes by Gina. The joyous newlyweds enjoyed a confetti send-off through Hotel ZaZa before joining their guests at their “Happily Ever After Party” where a DJ, lounge furniture, glow-in-the-dark crowns and necklaces, and after-party drinks and eats awaited them.
We are so excited to feature this gorgeous Houston couple and their stunning modern wedding. Congratulations, Amanda & Andrew!
