Intimate Restaurant Wedding by Civic Photos

Friday, September 8th, 2017

It’s a story as old as time: Bright-eyed, ambitious young intern meets seasoned company full-timer; water-cooler chat turns flirtatious; love ensues… (OK, we don’t really know about the water cooler part, but you get the picture!). Following a cozy proposal at home, over a home-cooked meal and wine, sweethearts Paola and Aaron made food and wine the center of their focus once again, with an elegant wedding for 35 guests, featuring an intimate church ceremony followed by a six-course French dinner at a favorite Houston restaurant. “Our wedding was meant to be a classic theme that would be beautiful years from now,” the bride tells us, and we have to say, “Yup, looks like you hit the mark perfectly!” We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness, and invite YOU to enjoy their celebration, through these lovely pix, including gorgeous portraits at the historic Julia Ideson Library, from Civic Photos!

This week, as all of us take shelter, rebuild and regroup from the unprecedented deluge of Hurricane Harvey, and take stock of everything that is dear and precious to us, we will be sharing some of our favorite weddings of the last few years. If you need an escape, a moment of peace, a reminder of the importance of family, friends and, above all, love, please settle in, snuggle down and join us. And once the storm clouds clear, and the water recedes, let us know what we can do to help you. We are all in this together. #BeStrongHouston #LoveConquersAll

Jenny and Chris knew each other long before they would ever fall in love. Their families were great friends even before the two were born! When Jenny was very young, her family moved away from Houston to Corpus Christi, but they eventually returned. So did Jenny, many years later, to attend nursing school. Chris, by that time, had moved to Austin. That’s when fate brought them back together, at a party at Jenny’s parents’ home, where they reconnected, and Jenny says, “we have been inseparable ever since!” The proposal happened on a weekend when the couple had traveled to Austin for a friend’s wedding—totally smooth move on Chris’ part. Jenny wasn’t suspecting a thing with another wedding going on! They went out for a date night at one of their favorite Austin spots, but the hostess didn’t lead them to a table. Instead, she led them “down candle-filled steps into a private wine cellar.” (Keep going! Here come those cute details we promised…) The cellar door opened and Jenny still recalls all of the details perfectly; champagne, candles and being surrounded by the most beautiful flowers. In the most romantic way Chris proposed to Jenny, the love of his life. And he gets kudos because he made sure the moment didn’t stop there…when they returned to Houston, their families were ready and waiting with a party to celebrate! Jenny and Chris couldn’t wait to say I do—and Jenny couldn’t wait to see Chris’ face when he saw her in her gorgeous Liancarlo gown from Ivory Bridal Atelier.  The big day started with a meaningful ceremony at their church, and concluded with a fantastic reception hosted and catered by the Petroleum Club of Houston. We’re grateful to Serendipity Photography for sharing photos of this sweet couple’s wedding, and grateful to Jenny and Chris for sharing their special day with us…and all of you!

Sometimes your high school love turns into forever. Just ask Houston bride, Lynnette, who married her high school boyfriend, Marco. “We met in high school math class in 2006,” says Lynnette. “We exchanged numbers and have been dating ever since.”

Every Christmas Lynnette’s family holds an anniversary party for her parents — but little did she know that their 30th anniversary had something special in store for her as well. During the celebration, Marco made a special toast for Lynnette’s parents, congratulated them, turned around and said, “I think I am ready to start my own journey today.” He got down on one knee, and the rest was history.

The lovebirds then began to plan their celebration at Chateau Cocomar. Lynnette and Marco wanted a modern, chic theme, and got exactly that thanks to Keisha’s Kreations. The colors ivory, black and hints of gold set the tone for an elegant evening.

Blush & Gold Wedding at Chateau Polonez by Ama Photography & Cinema

Fatima and Matthew really are the ultimate sweethearts. Their journey began in elementary school—fourth grade to be exact. Although their paths separated for a short time while they attended different high schools, they reconnected during junior year and that’s where it all finally began! Fatima recalls “what began as ‘young high-school love’ developed into a relationship filled with deep affection, trials and tribulations that we were able to surpass, trust, and the development of something deeper that is unexplainable with simple words.” *sniff sniff* Aargh, we told ourselves we weren’t gonna cry…but just wait for it, this proposal will definitely seal the deal on those tears. Matthew chose a day where Fatima was off work and he knew she would be home. Around 10:30 a.m., Fatima received a package with “Get Ready My Love” written on the outside in script…and inside was a perfect outfit and a note instructing her to be ready by noon. Matthew’s parents picked up Fatima and brought her to Mary Jo Peckam Park, which is a very special place to the couple. It was where Matthew gave Fatima a promise ring on their first anniversary. Sniff sniff again. Ahead of her was an anxiously-waiting boy holding flowers, and a trail of photos and ornaments hanging from the trees. As they stood under photos of memories from the many years they had spent together, Matthew got down on one knee and finally asked Fatima to marry him! Yep, here come the tears. After a day together, the two enjoyed a dinner with both of their families. Fatima and Matthew’s wedding was truly picturesque, complete with a light and fresh color palette of blush, ivory, and gold hues. They vowed their love for one another in a formal Catholic ceremony, and celebrated afterwards with a dreamy reception at Chateau Polonez. Fatima and Matthew said, “Our main focus was not only to celebrate our love, but to enjoy this celebration with our family and friends.” Fatima was a stunning bride in a lace trumpet-style gown designed by Allure Bridals from Parvani Vida Bridal and Formal—where she also found her accessories, bridal party dresses and gown preservation! Now, that’s just a one-stop-shop of perfection. The entire event was documented by Ama Photography & Cinema—and let’s be honest, these photos are just gorgeous. Many congrats to the beautiful couple!

Burgundy, Ivory & Gold Wedding at Northgate Country Club

Monday, July 31st, 2017

Facebook is a great way of connecting with family, old friends and even, in some cases, your future bae. Case in point: Makia and Sean. They attended the same church growing up, parted ways and eventually reconnected on Facebook, where casual chat turned into something that just felt…right.

It was Makia’s birthday and Sean wanted to make sure that this one was extra special. “We went rock climbing the morning of my birthday—I didn’t understand why we had to go SO early. Little did I know that Sean sneakily planted the ring in a red box on the rock climbing wall. Silly me, I ended up passing up the box and Sean had to point it out for me to notice (lol). Once I opened up the box, I was so surprised to see the ring,” says Makia.

Makia says, “We wanted a wedding that was classic and elegant, with a color palette of burgundy, champagne and ivory. The theme perfectly complemented our venue, Northgate Country Club .”
