Hot Pink & Black Wedding at Ashelynn Manor by A Lifetime of Memories Photography

It was one of those hot summer days in Lake Conroe when Megan and Joey first met, though it wasn’t until two years later when their paths crossed again. They’ve been inseparable ever since. Joey planned a sweet surprise proposal during their romantic vacation in Aruba while taking a stroll on the beach. “It was utterly romantic and a moment that I will never forget,” says bride Megan.  The pair celebrated their wedding with 250 of their nearest and dearest at picturesque  Ashelynn Manor, bringing in splashes of hot pink and chic black accents, to give the entire affair a glamorous edge. “I couldn’t imagine my dream wedding being anymore perfect than it was,” the bride says. “I married my best friend and can’t wait to see what our life journey has in store for us.” Thanks to A Lifetime of Memories Photography for the lovely photos and happiest wishes to the newlyweds!

Black and Plum Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th Street by Akil Bennett Photography

“The whole wedding was a dream,” says Houston bride Jennifer. “One of my favorite details was the midnight calla lilies in my bridal bouquet. I loved the rich dark color of the flowers against my cream dress.” The dark, rich color palette of black and plum with accents of peacock feathers truly set the tone for Jennifer and Scott’s wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th Street. If you think that sounds beautiful, wait ’til you see the pics! Thanks Akil Bennett for the gorgeous photos, and congrats to the newlyweds!

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Lisa and Donald ~ January 19, 2014

While their Match.com introduction might not be the essence of tradition, Don’s request to Lisa’s dad for permission to marry his daughter certainly was. “After getting my dad’s blessing, he dropped to one knee and I said, ‘Yes!’” recalls the bride—who also happens to be director of catering and conferences for one of Houston’s most revered wedding venues: The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. Naturally, the couple wed at Lisa’s longtime place of employment, aided in planning by the hotel’s social catering manager, Jim Gray. Highlights of the joyful occasion included a ceremony filled with poignant readings by the couple’s many family members. Avid foodies both, Don and Lisa incorporated wine pairings into their lavish menu, and treated guests to exquisite desserts, almond-and-raspberry wedding cake, and postprandial cigars. “My favorite part of the night was singing and dancing with my niece and goddaughter Caroline to—yes—‘Sweet Caroline,’ by Neil Diamond,” Lisa recalls happily. “The entire room joined in!”

The New York Wedding of Todd & Ceron

Photos: Donna Von Breuning

When famed event designer Todd Fiscus, of Todd Events (with locations in Dallas and Houston), tied the knot with longtime love Ceron–he of the renowned eponymous Houston hair salon–you better believe the pair, and their delighted guests, celebrated in supremely chic style. The couple’s New Year’s Eve wedding, held in Manhattan’s Glasshouses (an ultra-cool glass-walled venue overlooking the city’s nighttime sparkle), was an intimate affair for 100 beloved guests. But the event itself was most definitely grand, with its floral entranceway, gleaming black taper candles, accents of gold and crystal, and, apropos of the holiday, plenty of Champagne and caviar. We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness, and are so thrilled to have Todd Events as a Weddings in Houston partner. Congratulations, Todd and Ceron!
