Bayou City Event Center is known to play host to large, extravagant Houston weddings…just like Raphael and Eberechukwu’s glamorous wedding!
For their spring wedding, Raphael and Eberechukwu joined 250 loved ones at Bayou City Event Center, a grand and lavish wedding venue in the heart of Houston. The couple pledged their love in the venue’s intimate Lakeview Ballroom. Eberechukwu’s most cherished moment was walking down the aisle in a sparkling princess ballgown to meet her groom.
The versatile venue was transformed into the perfect backdrop for the couple’s royal-inspired wedding. “My decor set the mood of high-style elegance,” notes Eberechukwu, describing the glamorous ivory and gold wedding palette, lush white draping, tall dramatic florals, and floating candles. Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a delicious dinner of braised beef and a 7-tier red velvet wedding cake. Says the bride: “My wedding was everything I wanted it to be. I wanted it magical yet an event for royalty. It was all of that. I felt like a princess marrying a king.”
We’re delighted to share with you this sweet couple’s glamorous wedding at Bayou City Event Center as we wish them a lifetime of love. Congratulations, Raphael & Eberechukwu!
After meeting through mutual friends in 2014, Shiva and Jonathan later connected on Facebook when Jonathon messaged Shiva about the World Cup because he knew she liked soccer. “He came up with all these stats on players and I assumed that he knew a lot about soccer and that we had a lot in common,” recounts Shiva. “We decided to go out to a cafe in Montrose, just us two, and we hit it off from there.” Three years later Jonathon proposed to Shiva on the rooftop of Hotel ZaZa with the glittering lights of the downtown skyline as their backdrop.
Shiva and Jonathan pledged their love at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa in a traditional Persian ceremony, accompanied by a beautiful Sofreh Aghd, in a timeless wedding palette of white and gold. The bride describes her Persian wedding as “glamorous and romantic.” The reception decor featured tall dramatic floral centerpieces, glittering chandeliers, and a custom monogrammed dance floor from LG Event Entertainment & Production. Guests enjoyed a delectable surf and turf reception meal, followed by an elegant four-tier white and gold squared wedding cake with raspberry filling from Susie’s Cakes. Cherished moments for the bride included the father-daughter dance, first look, and dancing with everyone! We are so excited to feature this gorgeous Houston couple and their romantic Persian wedding. Congratulations, Shiva and Jonathan!

Houston bride Rozlind wanted her wedding to be a fabulous party that still had a warm, inviting feeling. From the black and white decor, to the all-white flowers, and romantic candlelit ballroom at Hotel ZaZa, Rozlind and Matthew’s wedding was the definition of modern glam. If you think all of this sounds glamorous, just wait till you see Rozlind’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe lace heels! Thanks, Adam Nyholt, for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!

Austyn could never have predicted that she’d eventually marry her dashing high-school prom date, Dane. But when their trip to the beach for Austyn’s 24th birthday turned into a surprise proposal, well, lovely Austyn knew she’d made the right choice. The pair wed in front of 250 of their nearest and dearest in grand style, and partied the night away surrounded by tall candelabras, dramatic floral arrangements, and tons of glitz n’ glam. Sounds gorgeous? Just wait ’til you see the sweet pics. Congrats and best wishes to the happy couple!
