WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Shannon & Tyler ~ June 21, 2014

Oh, how we love a well-planned proposal. Take, for example, Tyler’s to Shannon: After a sunny day of boating together on Austin’s Lake Travis, the groom-to-be feigned a “late” dinner reservation and led his beloved to Windy Point Park, where, after telling Shannon how much he loved her, he spun her around to face the words, “Will You Marry Me?” spelled in rose petals in the sand. He then proceeded to place a ring that he had custom designed for his one-and-only on her shaking-with-excitement hand. The couple’s Crystal Ballroom at The Rice wedding, with its sophisticated palette of blush, navy and gold, and its romantic candlelit glow, wasn’t just elegant—it was also a whole lot of fun: “Everyone enjoyed letting loose and dancing the night away,” Shannon says. “The dance floor was never empty. It was a night of a lifetime!”

Paintball TTD Shoot by Joey T Photography, Plus $700 Engagement-Shoot GIVEAWAY!

Monday, October 15th, 2012

We know some of y’all have mixed feelings about trash-the-dress shoots, and we’re with ya on that. But Tiffany and Ted’s absolutely awesome paintball TTD shoot is one that just makes us smile. Shot by the terrifically talented Joey Thomas of Joey T Photography at Tank’s Paintball Park in Katy, this shoot is everything a TTD shoot should IOHO: playful, joyful, unique…and just so darn hot.

Side note about Tiffany’s dress: “I bought it a week after I was engaged. My maid of honor and I went to the Brides Against Breast Cancer Tour as our first bridal event. I tried on a couple dresses to get more of an idea of what I liked, and I found the one, for an affordable price and a great cause.”

How cool is that? How gorgeous are Tiffany and Ted? How great is it that they can look so sophisticated, and yet not take themselves too seriously? How CUTE are the color-coordinated accessories and paintball splotches? How much do you love Joey T’s utterly beautiful images?

How’d you like to see yourself and your future hubby through this top Houston wedding photographer’s lens??

Here’s your chance! We are giving away not one but TWO $700 Joey T Photography engagement shoots, complete with two hours of on-location photography in the greater Houston area, and a stunning 16X24 heirloom-quality enlargement (you can, of course, order as many photos as you like…or should we say, love).

TO ENTER: 1) *Like* us Facebook 2) Email us your name, fiancé’s name, wedding date and reception venue, NO LATER THAN MIDNIGHT, THURSDAY, OCT. 25. Please enter ONLY ONCE (duplicate entries will be deleted).

Vibrant, Whimsical Aquarium Wedding by RSVP Studios

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

We all know it’s important to “love thy neighbor.” But Vanessa and Brandon took the adage WAY to heart. As fellow renters in a Houston apartment complex, the two bumped into each other one night in the hallway. “After meeting once, we couldn’t seem to be without each other, and started out adventure,” Vanessa says. The highlight (so far) of that joyful journey? That would be the couple’s June wedding, starting with a splendid ceremony at Galveston’s historic Grace Episcopal Church, and culminating with a fun-filled (if somewhat fishy) reception at Moody Gardens Aquarium. In her utterly dreamy Exclusive Edition by Allure gown from Houston’s Weddings by Debbie, and with that dazzling smile, Vanessa is the very picture of wedding-day glamour and giddiness—even when snuggling her sweetie whilst ol’ looms overhead. Seriously, this delightfully playful—and still exceptionally elegant—celebration reminds us of just how much fun a wedding can and should be. We’re so thankful to Vanessa and Brandon for sharing their exuberant personalities and special day with us, and equally grateful to RSVP Studios for the superb pix! What do YOU think of this aquatic affair? Post your comment here!
