WOW, What a Show!

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

If you were one of those fortunate (and savvy) enough to have attended last Thursday’s utterly magnificent I Do! Wedding Soiree at The Corinthian, you experienced first-hand the all-encompassing splendor of Houston’s ONLY true luxury wedding event and VIP bride/groom cocktail bash.

If you weren’t present for Thursday’s festivities, well…let us give you a little glimpse of what you missed.

WOW, What a Show!

Event Rentals & Design, LBL Event Rentals & Design, Johanna Terry Events, DJU Productions, LG Entertainment, Scott Graham Piano, and our awesome show photographer (and top Houston-area wedding photography studio!)

Event Rentals & Design, LBL Event Rentals and Flowers of Kingwood.

And just in case they weren’t sure whether they’d prefer a head of flowing waves or a glam updo, a sun-kissed glow or shimmering bare shoulders, a full set of lush lashes or just a bit of enhancement, our guests could experiment with looks, get advice and try out products from Nyoka Gregory Beauty, WINX Lash Studio, KAX Tanning Souffle and Hotze Health & Wellness Center.

Of course, no wedding-day look is complete with the right…sparkle. And guests found oodles of glimmer and shine (and a few VERY substantial rocks), at the dazzling displays put on by Peran & Scannell Jewelers, and Donoho’s Jewellers.

While they wandered through the Soiree’s wonderland of wedding WOW, guests were entertained by top Houston MC, DJ, and live-music experts DJU Productions, LG Entertainment and pianist Scott Graham.

Navy and Ivory Briscoe Manor Wedding by Lindsay Elizabeth Photography

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

What is it about dimpled beauties and fitness-related meet-cutes?? Even though Scott admits he “hated the challenges of a spin class” (um, yeah, been there), he figured strained muscles and spent lung capacity was worth it if it meant winning a “million-dollar smile” from the girl of his dreams—spin/cycling instructor Sarah. After forming a friendship and—our favorite part—falling in love, the two got engaged, in the spin studio where they first met (natch). “Briscoe Manor offered a distinctive, chic and truly Texas wedding venue with its limestone architecture and country setting among the pecan and oak trees,” Sarah tells us—the perfect spot to introduce Canadian-born Scott’s family to her native state. Her most memorable moments? “Getting to see Scott for the first time before the ceremony and spending special moments with my soon-to-be husband, and looking around at a room full of friends and family that we love so dearly. I especially enjoyed getting to introduce all of the Canadian guests to a true Texas-themed wedding!” And WE especially enjoy getting to introduce Sarah and Scott to YOU—with help from Lindsay Elizabeth’s ever lovely photos, of course!

Pink, Orange, Lime, Turquoise Country Chic Wedding by Lindsay Elizabeth Photography

Friday, June 28th, 2013

“An elegant, fun, country-Aggie wedding with tons of personalized touches” is how Alaina describes her wedding to former high-school sweetheart James. “On the tables, we had hearts made out of horseshoes that my 84-year-old grandfather made. For wedding favors we had ‘Lovin’ Me Some Lava Cakes’ in mason jars. We also had ‘Pinking of You Lemonade’ served in mason jars with old-fashioned striped paper straws for the kids. We even had personalized WANTED-poster gift bags for the youngest party-goers. Highlights were the gorgeous flowers, the nonstop dancing, and the photo booth which was so much fun!” And we’ve had nothing but fun fawning over Lindsay Elizabeth Photography’s pretty pix of this bright, beautiful spring wedding. Enjoy!

Pink and Gray Briscoe Manor Wedding by Lindsay Elizabeth Photography

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Man’s best friend…or man’s best proposal ruse? You be the judge! Houston bride Kay explains: “We were out walking our Great Dane Nali like we usually do in the evenings, when she started getting into something in the grass. Nate made me worry and was saying, ‘What does she have?’ but it was dark so it was hard to tell. When she finally ‘dropped’ it, I still couldn’t make out what it was, so I was poking at this thing on the ground…which turned out to be a ring box! I fell to my knees and started crying—not your typical dog walk!” Sweet Nali the Great Dane made yet another appearance in Kay and Nate’s love story, as ring-bearer at their spring wedding at Briscoe Manor. Here’s a glimpse at the festivities, in the bride’s words: “Our first dance was to Ray LaMontange’s ‘Hold You in My Arms,’ followed by a father-daughter dance to ‘My Girl” by The Temptations. Then came a surprise mother-son dance from Nate, who had practiced the dance from ‘Pulp Fiction’ with his mom! That was quite the treat considering Nate isn’t much of a dancer, especially when all eyes are on him. After lots of food including a phenomenal brownie bar, breaking it down to the Harlem shake, a bouquet toss to Beyoncé’s ‘All The Single Ladies’ and a garter toss with Nate’s 80-something-year-old uncle diving for the garter, we wrapped things up with a fireworks show and departed into a classic Rolls-Royce to Hotel ZaZa for the night!” We are loving Lindsay Elizabeth’s joyful photos of this warm and wonderful Houston wedding. Happiest wishes to Kay and Nate…and lovely Nali, too!
