WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Lara & Nick ~ July 12, 2014

We like to think of Lara and Nick’s meeting as a bright silver lining on a very dark cloud: The couple first encountered one another in July 2011 in Fort Payne, Ala., where both were volunteers assisting in tornado relief efforts. Their long-distance relationship—he was in North Carolina, she lived in Houston—blossomed, and in 2012, Nick moved to Houston. With its cornflower-and-peach color scheme and steak-and-lobster menu, the pair’s summer wedding was true Houston classic. The gracious bride adds, “It was also Nick’s brother-in-law’s (he was Nick’s best man) birthday, so after his speech we gave him a cheesecake and sang him, ‘Happy Birthday.’ It was pretty cool to see all 150 people join in and celebrate.”

Vintage Blue, Cream and Silver Houston Wedding by Ethan Avery Photography

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

Q: What do you do when you’re planning a wedding on a tight budget and can’t afford expensive rentals and fancy decorations? A: Make just about everything out of paper! For Kristina’s wedding to Jody, the bride’s friends pitched in to source or craft everything from placemats to paper flowers to pinwheel favors. The results? A delightful landscape of sweet, sentimental, DIY decor and charming vintage touches, along with sweet, creamy floral accents by Something Special in Flowers. And baby, this bride knows how to rock a true “something blue” mani! Big congrats to Kristina and Jody, one of the cutest couples we’ve ever seen.

Dreamy Indoor Garden Wedding from Planner Kat Creech

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Four Seasons Las Vegas catering manager Nicole readily admits that her event-planning experience was both a blessing and a curse when it came time to prepare for her own wedding. “Being an event planner, there were so many ideas. Then when one was selected, I would want to change it for a more cost-effective option. Experience and knowing how many options there were made choosing very difficult. That’s why I was kicked off [the job] and my mom and planner”—Kat Creech, of Houston’s Kat Creech Events—“took my vision and created the perfect day!” The bride’s dream wedding to her beloved Cham (whom she met by boldly strutting up and introducing herself, upon catching sight of his handsome mug at a local pub—let that be a lesson to you, ladies!) is a mystical garden of multiple delights, set inside the window-lined space of a historic Houston theater. From the jewel-tone centerpieces, suspended birdcages, Spanish moss and floral peacocks to the brooch bouquets and stained-glass windows, Nicole and Cham’s elegant Houston wedding is the perfect balance of lush natural bounty and sublime sparkle. We hope you’ll agree, and that you’ll join us in swooning over photos from ALTF Photographers, and in wishing these two a lifetime of love and happiness! And don’t forget to visit Kat Creech Events at this Sunday’s I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, for details on how Creech and her crew can transform your wedding fantasy into reality, just like she did for lucky (and savvy) bride Nicole.

Coral and Turquoise Brady’s Landing Wedding by Civic Photos

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

For his proposal to his beautiful Rachel, Brandon took her back to the karaoke bar where they’d first met, did a few of his best tunes…and then asked her to make beautiful music with him for the rest of their lives. Aww… To celebrate the couple’s June wedding, 200 friends and family members gathered at Brady’s Landing, where they enjoyed dining and dancing, surrounded by decor in a fresh, summery palette of coral and turquoise. While most brides might have an element or two of their wedding they might do differently, or a minor mishap they wished they’d been able to avoid, not so Houston bride Rachel: “I loved my wedding; everything was perfect,” she says. Big thanks to Civic Photos for the vintage-feel photos, and congrats to the beaming newlyweds!

Downtown Aquarium Wedding by Kreative Angle Photography

Friday, June 7th, 2013

Though they’d been friends since they were 10—best friends all through high school—Shannon was nevertheless “speechless” when, six years into their romantic relationship, Colin proposed while she was curled up with a hot chocolate, fumbling for the TV remote. Their spring wedding, which started with a church ceremony where Shannon’s beloved brother walked her down the aisle then high-fived her before dropping her off at the altar, gave way to an equally joyful reception at the Downtown Aquarium. Echoing the Nautilus Ballroom’s marine theme, Shannon and Colin went with a palette of cobalt blue and deep purple, and treated guests to seafood specialties including gumbo and crab-stuffed fillet of sole. As Shannon recounts, “The aquarium was decked out with lanterns and treasure chests filled with glow necklaces. The guests were asked to write date ideas on tongue depressors from the chests—we have some doozies. The DJ had everyone moving the entire night, guests sent us off with wedding wands through a tunnel out of the location. We then drove off in a cherry red Challenger and spent the evening enjoying the luxury of Hotel Icon.” Just how lovely does Shannon look in that Jasmine Couture gown from The Princess Bridal? Sigh. Congrats to the happy couple, and a high-five from us here at HWB to Kreative Angle Photography for the fine, fine photos.
