Champagne and Red Wedding at Chateau Cocomar by Civic Photos

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON SPRING 2015 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Brittney & Randy ~ July 19, 2014

Listen up, ladies: There’s something to be said for making the first move. Just ask Houston bride Brittney—who may never have ended up with the love of her life if she hadn’t asked handsome Randy for his digits at that Southern Methodist University dorm icebreaker 10 years back. “We ended up talking for hours on end,” she recalls, “then officially started dating on Sept. 24, 2004…and the rest is history!” At the couple’s beautiful Chateau Cocomar wedding, the groom, whose family hails from Ghana, changed into traditional Ghanian clothing halfway through the reception and delighted in watching his family shower his bride in money—a Ghanian tradition that Brittney says, “was a complete surprise to me, but made for an awesome story and a unique experience at our wedding.”

Romantic White and Red Wedding at Chateau Polonez by Civic Photos

If you fell helplessly in love with this ridiculously gorgeous couple’s retro-chic engagement shoot by Civic Photos, just wait until you see their wedding! Houston bride Kristy and her groom Desmond wanted to give their guests a glimpse of what it would be like to attend a romantic wedding in a French chateau and, “Chateau Polonez provided the perfect ambiance,” she says. Kristy looked like a dream in a stunning fit-and-flare lace gown with a Swarovski beaded belt from Winnie Couture and show-stopping Christian Louboutin sheer, sparkling pumps. And dashing Desmond more than held his own. Looking for winter wedding inspiration?  Take a cue from Kristy and Desmond’s creamy ivory, white and deep red palette–a perfect color combo for cold-season festivities. Big thanks to fine photographers Saul Munoz and Barett Henry of Civic Photos, and our most sincere congrats to Kristy and Desmond, we wish you two the best!

Weddings in Houston “Whiteout” Party at La Colombe d’Or by Civic Photos

We are SO fortunate to do what we love…and LOVE what we do. And none of it would be possible without our amazingly talented and dedicated clients, who just happen to be Houston’s absolute finest wedding vendors and experts. Oh–and another thing: These party people know how to PARTY. Which they proved in grand style last week when Weddings in Houston hosted our annual client appreciation party at magnificent, historic La Colombe d’Or. This year’s theme? Whiteout Night with WIH. Guests arrived attired all in cool, crisp white, and enjoyed a fabulous respite from the hot summer night. Our BIG thanks goes out to La Colombe d’Or’s Ed Bodde and Steve Zimmerman for hosting this year’s festivities and indulging our guests with fine food and drink, to Darryl Murchison and BJ of Darryl & Co. for their exceptional event decor and styling, to Susie’s Cakes & Confections for the evening’s utterly decadent desserts, and to Jonny Black Productions for awesome music and entertainment. Check out pix from our fantastic fete, shot by super-talented Barett Henry of Civic Photos. And remember, every single one of these vendors is available to bring their magic to your wedding, as as they did to our lil’ ol’ shindig.
