4 Seasons of Wedding WOW: Tablescapes for Spring, Summer, Winter & Fall

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

When we gathered together a selection of super-talented Houston wedding florists, decorators and stylists at coveted Downtown venue the Corinthian-Houston and asked them to create wedding reception table designs that embody the spirit of each of the four seasons…well…we knew we were in for something special. Fortunately, fabulous photographer Taylor Golden was on hand to capture the seasonal magic, which we’re sharing with you right here in this bountiful blog post! Love what you see? Pin it, Instagram it, share it, love it, let us know!

Weddings in Houston Celebrates 30 Years

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

30 years of brides. 30 years of grooms. 30 years of “I said, ‘Yes!'” and “It was the best night of my life!” 30 years of first looks, first dances, first newlywed kisses. 30 years of fairytale gowns and joyful tears and dreams come true. The thing about being Houston’s longest published wedding magazine is that while weddings may be once-in-a-lifetime, we get to live and breathe weddings, and the joy they bring, day in and day out, year after year. And on Sept. 21, we celebrated that gift, and the incredible vendors and wedding experts who make it possible, with a magnificent gala at Corinthian – Houston.

Houston Event - Wedding Professionals  - Corinthian-Houston, Jackson and Company, The Ballroom at Bayou Place, Bright Star Productions, Darryl & Co.

Here, we share a glimpse at the fun and fabulousness of our 30th Anniversary Gala and Client Appreciation Party. Like many Houston events, our gala was affected by Hurricane Harvey’s wrath. With a sudden city power outage affecting our original host venue, The Ballroom at Bayou Place, our team of professionals had 24 hours to move this 300-person formal event to the Corinthian-Houston. We were so impressed with the level of ingenuity and unflappable professionalism each partner exhibited. Without missing a beat, they provided gorgeous decor, delicious food, a full bar and incredible music, creating a night to remember.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to our partners, without whom we could not have celebrated in such extraordinary style: Boyd Bryan of Corinthian – Houston for hosting us at such short notice, Craig Howard and Kirksey Gregg of  The Ballroom at Bayou Place (which, in spite of a city power outage, is very much in business and continues to host amazing events) for providing our bar and waitstaff; Darryl & Co. and Bright Star Productions for the exquisite decor and lighting; Danny Ray And The Acoustic Production and LG Entertainment  for getting everyone on the dance floor;  GTX Productions for outstanding video and sound; Jackson and Company, Lola Catering, The Hometown Chef, A La Carte Catering and Bailey Connor Catering for providing an array of delicious food; Susie’s Cakes & Confections and Cakes by Gina for the delectable desserts; Wink by Erica for the macaron favors; and our fantastic gala photographer Civic Photos.

7 Ways Neutrals Can Anchor Your Wedding Tablescape

Monday, September 18th, 2017

Basic beige? Not even. Choose linens, rentals and tenting in neutral hues to tie your flowers, table settings, and decor together. Ask your wedding planner and florist for tips, and take inspiration from these neutral wedding palette “tricks!”

1. A pattern in a neutral color acts almost as a solid.

2. Neutral chairs and linens paired with greenery bring the outdoors in.

3. Barely-there “ghost” chairs and soft white tenting create airy space for larger receptions.

4. Pair a neutral pattern with gold and a range of pinks and greenery for a fresh palette.

5. Use varying saturations and tones of a classic neutral (in this case, taupe) to add dimension to decor.

6. A light-hued, sheer runner paired with a natural surface acts as a texture rather than a color, creating layers of interest.

7. White, as a textured table linen or used sparingly on napkins or chair sashes, lends a clean, modern finish.

Venues We Love: The Bryan Museum…Especially The Conservatory!!

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

One of the questions we get asked a lot here at HWB is: “Don’t you get tired of weddings?” And the answer is, well…no. We really, truly don’t. And the main reason is because every wedding is different. Every. Single. One. Color palettes may come and go, centerpiece heights may soar one season…and then come back down to earth by the next, but, we guarantee you, each wedding, no matter what trends they may share, is unique, special, unlike any other wedding in the universe. Because each couple is unlike any other couple in the universe—their love story is their own, and nobody else’s, and as such, their wedding is a magical celebration unto itself, singular and perfect.

Same goes for wedding venues: No two are alike. But…every once in a while, we come upon a venue that is so distinctive, we just have to single it out for some special love. The Bryan Museum in Galveston—housing one of the world’s largest collections of historical artifacts, documents and artwork relating to Texas and the American West—is one of these venues. And The Bryan Museum’s Conservatory is what makes it so totally one-of-a-kind for weddings.

Constructed of intricate metalwork and dazzling emerald-green glass, the Conservatory isn’t for huge bashes—it maxes out at about 150 reception guests—but the wedding celebrations it does house are stunners.

For larger wedding events, the 2,000-square foot Bryan Museum Conservatory opens onto a large stone patio that can be set up with additional guest seating.

During the day, the Conservatory looks out onto a velvet-green lawn, while keeping guests comfortably cool, in its climate-controlled interior.

At night, the jewel-like glass walls of this gem of a venue glow with candlelight, making for an ultra-romantic wedding reception atmosphere.

And while most couples tend to have their ceremony in one of the area’s houses of worship, before segueing to the Bryan Museum for their celebration, you can say your “I do’s” on site, al fresco, beneath the museum’s jasmine-covered gazebo.

Planning a Galveston getaway this summer? Call 409.220.3022 to schedule a visit to The Bryan Museum, and check out the beautiful Conservatory—plus the lavish bridal suite and awesome groom’s lounge—in person, as you plan your unlike-any-other-wedding wedding. It’ll knock your socks off. But heck, it’s summer in Houston. Who needs socks anyway??

Happy venue-hunting, loves.
