Cream, Champagne, Gold & Bronze Wedding at The Parador by Akil Bennett Photography

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

“We wanted our day to reflect a coming together and honoring of those we love, so the winter season seemed like the perfect time for our celebration. I never could have imagined just how beautiful the evening would be, and my initial entry into the ballroom brought me to tears. The intimate lighting of hundreds of candles, the warmth of white lights on fir trees, the live jazz band playing classic tunes in the background, and being surrounded by the faces of those we hold closest to our hearts made it feel like an evening of coming home,” says Houston bride Ashley. The European-style gardens and elegant simplicity of The Parador made it the perfect venue for the couple, who brought in subtle design elements in a soft, romantic color palette of cream, champagne, gold and bronze. Please excuse us while we swoon over the gorgeous photos of this beautiful wedding by Akil Bennett Photography. We promise you will, too. Congrats to the lovely couple!

Glamour, Glimmer and Shades at Charcoal Gray & Pale Pink Wedding at Dukessa

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Phillip and Krisella first met in Austin at a mutual friend’s baby shower. “He was late and the first thing out of my mouth after we were properly introduced was, ‘Hi. You’re late (with my big signature smile).’ It worked because we never stopped seeing each other from that day forward!” After a year of being inseparable, Phillip and Krisella decided to tie the knot. Krisella wore a gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown from Weddings by Debbie with stunning stacked diamond bracelets and teardrop diamond earrings to complete her Old Hollywood glam look. The room was filled with romantic low lights, and rose, anemone and hydrangea flower arrangements. We could go on and on about how beautiful this Houston wedding was at Dukessa, but we want YOU to fall in love with the photos as much as we did. Congrats and best wishes to the lovely couple!

Classic Ivory & Charcoal Crystal Ballroom Wedding by Ama Photography & Cinema

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

“I had a patient in the ER that needed massive transfusion of blood products. Andrew was working in the blood bank that night. We exchanged simple conversation but I couldn’t stop thinking about him. I messaged him on Facebook a few weeks later, basically asking for a date. He text messaged me the next morning and we’ve been together ever since,” says Houston bride Lenee. If you think their made-for-TV meet-cute is sweet (and verrry dramatic), just wait ’til you see the beautiful photos from their wedding at The Crystal Ballroom at the Rice taken by Aisha Khan from Ama Photography & Cinema! Congrats Lenee & Andrew on tying the knot!
