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

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!

Las Vegas Wedding with Houstonian Bride, English Groom and French Proposal, by Ama Photography & Cinema

Houston-raised Eva met Leeds, U.K.-based Phil at a fish fry in the Bahamas, where she was on vacation and he was on a contract diving project. And that’s just the beginning of their international love story. While rock climbing together in southern France’s Pyrenees Mountains, Phil surprised Eva with a Champagne picnic—and a Jimi-Hendrix-accompanied proposal. Not long after, the pair joined 28 friends and close family members in Las Vegas, where they said their lifelong vows—the bride’s daughter escorting her down the aisle, much to everyone’s joy—and celebrated in intimate style at the retro-chic Barrymore. Evocative photos from Ama Photography & Cinema speak to the warmth and elegance of the occasion—one that will be forever cherished by Eva and Phil. Cheers!

Intimate Petroleum Club Wedding by Steve Lee Weddings

While “iPhone meets Frank Sinatra” might not seem like your typical wedding theme, Amy and Robbie’s Houston nuptial celebration was anything but your typical wedding. The couple, who met at work and got engaged in the moments after the groom disembarked from a plane after traveling 30-plus hours, wanted their spring wedding to have “modern, clean lines” and a “jazzy, cool feel,” Amy says. Hinging on a palette of deep purple, silver, white and black, they infused the vintage-elegant Petroleum Club of Houston with a sleek, clubby feel—the perfect environment in which to enjoy excellent food and dancing with an intimate group of fewer than 90 close friends and family members. And the bride’s Martina Liana gown (accented with the silver ribbon sash) and purple-calla bouquet? Perfection. Cheers to the exceptionally talented Steve Lee for the fabulous photos of this retro-meets-right-now wedding.
