WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Lisa and Donald ~ January 19, 2014

While their Match.com introduction might not be the essence of tradition, Don’s request to Lisa’s dad for permission to marry his daughter certainly was. “After getting my dad’s blessing, he dropped to one knee and I said, ‘Yes!’” recalls the bride—who also happens to be director of catering and conferences for one of Houston’s most revered wedding venues: The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. Naturally, the couple wed at Lisa’s longtime place of employment, aided in planning by the hotel’s social catering manager, Jim Gray. Highlights of the joyful occasion included a ceremony filled with poignant readings by the couple’s many family members. Avid foodies both, Don and Lisa incorporated wine pairings into their lavish menu, and treated guests to exquisite desserts, almond-and-raspberry wedding cake, and postprandial cigars. “My favorite part of the night was singing and dancing with my niece and goddaughter Caroline to—yes—‘Sweet Caroline,’ by Neil Diamond,” Lisa recalls happily. “The entire room joined in!”

Contemporary Engagement Shoot by Civic Photos

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

We are absolutely in love with beautiful bride-to-be Kristy and handsome groom Desmond’s engagement shoot for several reasons: 1. They are ridiculously good-looking AND well dressed. 2. The theme went from super modern and edgy to casual, yet romantic. 3. We can’t wait to see how amazing their upcoming wedding in August at Chateau Polonez will be! Check out their engagement shoot by Civic Photos– great job Barett!

Houston Heights Backyard Wedding Ceremony by Ama by Aisha Photography & Cinema

Friday, February 14th, 2014

For their fall wedding, Houstonians Katheryne and Casey knew they wanted “a small, intimate ceremony so that we could have a meaningful event that focused on our family, and so our four dogs could participate,” the bride says. What better spot, then, for their vows, than the autumn-leaf-and-rose-petal-strewn backyard of their Houston Heights home? Shot by Aisha Khan of Ama by Aisha Photography & Cinema (who just happened to be our AWESOME official show photographer at the Jan. 26 I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston), the couple’s nuptials are the very picture of relaxed revelry and vintage-touched fun. We couldn’t be happier to share their special day, and lovely pix!

Have you ever found yourself charmed by a particular trinket, art piece or houseware while traveling? Susan Gravely and her family did—and turned their infatuation with Amalfi-coast dinnerware into a thriving import business. Since 1983, VIETRI has been bringing Italian tabletop pieces to discerning customers in  Canada, Mexico, Europe, South America, Asia, Australia—and right here in good ol’ Houston, Texas, USA (among other states and cities). This Friday, Gravely herself will be at Bering’s, sharing houseware and entertaining advice, and personally signing VIETRI pieces—which, incidentally, have become a huge favorite on Houston gift registries. Pop into the Westheimer store on your lunch break—event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.—for Prosecco and Italian sweets, and enjoy a gift with your VIETRI purchase.
