Pewter and Pink Houston Wedding With International Flair

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

“On May 13, 2010, my mom said all that she wanted for her birthday was for me to join Jdate.com, a Jewish online dating service. I was very hesitant but how could I turn down her birthday wish? I briefly searched the men available and stumbled upon ‘bluesman84.’ I had just moved back to Houston after going to college in NYC to study music business. With that kind of screen name, I had to talk to him. He was the first and last guy I ever spoke to on the site and we both never logged back on after that.” They never needed to, after all. By that time, Nicole and South African transplant Daniel were well on their way to forever. With her Russian and his South African background, the couple’s wedding was full of cultural touchstones, starting with its theme: “‘L’chaim, Cheers, Na’zdarova’—all three of these words mean ‘to life,’ but are said three different ways,” explains Nicole. Along with homage to their heritages, Nicole and Daniel’s wedding at the Omni Houston Hotel was rich with music. “My husband, who plays guitar, got on stage and sang a song he wrote to me, as well as a one-song reunion with his high-school band.” A treat for the couple, their 230 guests—many having traveled from locales including Israel, South Africa, Germany, London and Australia—the wedding, we can only imagine, was an especially sweet treat for Nicole’s mom, who got her birthday wish, and then some. Congratulations to all, and sincere thanks to Morgan Lynn Photography for the pretty pix.

Texture Filled Fall Wedding at Houston’s Briscoe Manor

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

College sweethearts, a Christmas day proposal, a fabulous fall wedding at Houston’s Briscoe Manor—color us charmed. Bride Eva says that for her wedding to Carlo, “textures were a priority,” which is why you see them everywhere from the cool cork table-number holders to Floriography’s architectural apple-and-sunflower table arrangements, to Edible Designs by Jessie’s tree-bark wedding cake, to guests’ gridded “Stroopwafel” cookie favors. We love the contrast of all those earthy, autumnal shades and motifs to glamorous bride Eva’s glittering brooch bouquet and sky-high gold sparkle platforms. Congratulations to the newlyweds, and big thanks to Cornerstone Photography for the pix!

Petroleum Club Wedding by SB Image Studios

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

They fell in love over barbecued squirrel… Now THAT’S a sentence you don’t hear every day. But it’s the one that describes the blossoming relationship between Maria and Jarrod, who met at a backyard party and instantly connected when the groom-to-be fed his future bride a tasty bite of the grilled critter he’d shot just moments earlier. Ah, romance. Three years after their barbecue bonding, the pair wed in a decidedly more upscale celebration, starting with a formal ceremony at the Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, filled with music—from a rousing choral performance to a live brass quintet playing the Trumpet Voluntary for the bride’s processional. To marry her squirrel-hunting beau, bride Maria wore a La Sposa dress she customized herself: “My mother and I, along with help from friends and family, sewed Swarovski crystals and pearl beads all throughout my lace and tulle gown, and cathedral-length train. It took us six months to complete.” On top of that, “I also hand made the bridesmaids’ jewelry and completely designed the cake, by drawing and submitting my design for Edible Designs by Jessie to make.” Now that’s our kind of DIY. The couple’s 300-guest reception at the beautiful Petroleum Club of Houston treated celebrants to a sit-down dinner, the aforementioned cake, and lots of dancing, after which Maria and Jarrod departed by—what else—a horse-drawn carriage. The night was truly magical—all thanks to our many supportive and loving guests,” the grateful (and gracious) bride says. Our thanks to SB Image Studios for sharing photos of this splendid Houston wedding—and our happiest wishes to the lovely couple!

Sophisticated Briscoe Manor Wedding by Blanca Duran Photography

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

Some couples are just destined to be together. That’s how it was with Amey and William. A friend first suggested William as a “perfect” guy for Amey (though at the time, amazingly, getting set up was the furthest thing from Amey’s mind). An unexpected Facebook friend request from the groom-to-be eventually got things rolling, and William’s general adorableness and devotion sealed the deal. About her true love, our bride Amey says, “It’s as if God went down the checklist in my heart and formed William just for me!” Sweet, right? Also sweet—and chic, and elegant, and so sophisticated—was the couple’s April wedding at Briscoe Manor. We are loving the use of richly colored lighting on Briscoe Manor’s rough-hewn walls. And that rose-and-sparkle-encrusted cake from Edible Designs by Jessie? To die for. Blanca Duran’s magnificent photography really captures the lush, glittering beauty of this wedding—and we couldn’t be happier to feature it here!
