Bright Peacock-Inspired Sangeet & Garden-Themed South Asian Wedding

Monday, May 1st, 2017

Houston couple Sadie and Aneel’s off-the-charts proposal story, to no surprise, culminated in a one-of-a-kind South Asian celebration. Their wedding story began when the high-school sweethearts planned a “spontaneous” trip to Napa Valley, where Aneel had reserved a private terrace overlooking breathtaking grounds. There he showed Sadie a video he (with the help of their family and friends) created and aptly titled, “How to Propose to Sadie,” which she says was “super creative, sweet, funny, and definitely tear-jerking.” After the video concluded, Sadie turned to find Aneel on one knee with a gorgeous pear-shaped diamond ring just for her. We aren’t surprised she said, “Yes!”

The couple celebrated their nuptials with six events over three days, where “we prepared to eat, dance, and celebrate the fusion of two families,” Sadie says, beginning with a mehndi ceremony, where Sadie and her gals adorned themselves in intricate henna tattoos. The next day, the couple celebrated with a lively sangeet among 750 friends and family members. The night was complete with a peacock-inspired, Moroccan theme featuring purple, royal blue, turquoise and chartreuse florals and decor by Haute Flowers & Events…and a whole lot of dancing.

The following day, Sadie and Aneel formally said, “I do,” in a romantic garden-themed ceremony with soft coral, peach, ivory and pink hues, in front of 250 of their nearest and dearest.

Sadie glided down the aisle in a gorgeous lace trumpet gown from Weddings by Debbie, while Aneel waited for the moment when they could offer each other their personally written vows. After dancing the night away, yet again, the couple jetted off to a mini-moon where it all began: Napa Valley.

To Do This Week: Bridal Open Houses at Heather’s Glen and Sweetwater Country Club

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Here’s what we love most about Heather’s Glen and Sweetwater Country Club: wedding packages without that dreaded “package feel.”

At Heather’s Glen, set on splendid grounds in Conroe, all-inclusive wedding packages range from casual cake-and-punch festivities to lavish affairs featuring ice bars, Champagne fountains and horse-drawn carriages. Sugar Land’s lakeside Sweetwater Country Club offers wedding packages that range in price based on selected menu, and all feature hosted valet parking, hosted bar and an expansive dance floor. While comprehensive wedding packages ensure that everything is in place on your wedding day, each venue allows wedding couples to customize their overall wedding environment to ensure that each wedding is completely unique, and each couple’s tastes and personalities shine through.

Of course, there’s plenty else to love about both wedding venues, including picturesque settings that beautifully blend natural ambiance with special-occasion elegance. We also love special features like Heather’s Glen’s lovely on-site country chapel with soaring ceilings, stained-glass windows and twinkling chandeliers—so sweet and perfect for storybook ceremonies. Sweetwater Country Club, meanwhile, wins major points for its awesome rehearsal dinners, which get guests in a celebratory mood with a choice of bountiful buffets (Texas BBQ, Mexican Fiesta, etc.) or the more formal, but still totally fun, sit-down dinner. Now that’s Houston-style hospitality!

But don’t take our word for it—check out these wedding venues for yourself!
