If you attended last Thursday’s I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian, you got a peek at the extraordinary talent that is Darryl & Co. This Thursday, you’re in for more—much more—of Darryl Murchison’s signature sophistication and opulence, when Darryl & Co. hosts its annual spring showcase. Tablescapes, luxurious lounge settings, dazzling decor and flights of floral fantasy all will be on display at this fabulous open house and cocktail bash. And if that’s not reason enough for revelry, then the fact that this soiree is also a celebration of Darryl & Co.’s 20th anniversary most certainly is. Festivities kick off at 5:30; admission is free; your RSVP is requested.

When acclaimed Houston wedding videographers Alex Douglas and Whitney Henderson, of award-winning Sculpting With Time Productions, said their own “I do’s,” it was with glorious Palm Beach, Fla., as their backdrop. The couple’s wedding, with its Royal Poinciana Chapel Gardens ceremony and gorgeous Flagler Museum reception, is so utterly sigh-inducing, we’ll just go ahead and let photographer Jess Barfield’s stunning pix speak for themselves. Visit Barfield’s blog for more beautiful images of this wondrous wedding. And while you’re at it, check out Alex Douglas’s award-winning documentary “The Passage,” on the incredible history and modern-day significance of the Panama Canal, which took Best Cinematographer honors at the Harlem International Film Festival and will have its West Coast premiere on Jan. 30th at Opening Night of the huge Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where it is nominated for the Social Justice award (and where this year’s speakers include Oprah Winfrey, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, to name a few).
And don’t forget to visit Sculpting With Time at the Sunday, Jan. 26 I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston to congratulate the newlyweds in person…and tap into their extraordinary filmmaking talents to document your own unforgettable day!

There’s just something so darn sweet (and LOL funny) about this journalistic, third-party courtship story we received on behalf of Houston couple Amy and Jimmy: “After seeing a picture of Amy through a friend’s Facebook, Jimmy was determined to meet her and asked a friend of his to introduce him to her. The introduction was made, but the first date was not made until six months later. Jimmy and Amy had dinner and bonded while watching the first ‘Paranormal Activity’ movie. Since then, they have watched every ‘Paranormal Activity’ movie except for the fourth one, due to Jimmy being out of the country during their anniversary.” See what we mean?? Think that’s cute, just check out their understated, vintage-elegant Houston wedding, with its white, gold, gray and pink palette, and Amy’s gorgeous, keyhole-back Monique Lhuillier gown. Cheers to the newlyweds, and big thanks to Motley Melange Photography for the lovely photos.
