Agave Estates may have been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey (the pastoral wedding and events enclave in Katy was forced to close its Agave Road venue as a result of the storm), but Nicci and Drew’s lovely wedding demonstrates, beautifully, that this beloved Houston-area wedding location is very much alive, and just a charming as ever. The couple’s first visit to Agave Estates actually sealed the deal on having a Texas wedding. Click here to read the rest of this post »
“We call our wedding our ‘fairytale wedding,’ because it truly was,” says bride Gina. “From the flowers, to the photographer, to the makeup, to our attire, to the music, to our guests…everything was just perfect.” Taking a DIY approach to their low-key, vintage-country celebration, Gina and Ryan planned their wedding together, treating friends and family to an intimate gathering where Texan touches abounded, and fun was the focus. As Gina explains, “We tried not to spend on things that we didn’t find special to us, and we invested in things that we found truly important. I got the dress I always dreamed of [a beautiful drop-waist, tiered Tara Keely from Weddings by Debbie], and Ryan loved his Vera Wang suit. We had our ceremony at a very small, intimate Methodist church with stained-glass windows and wooden pews. We used baby’s breath on the pews and for the bouquets and boutonnieres to create our vintage look. We took our pictures with our AMAZING photographer, Lindsay Elizabeth Strode of Lindsay Elizabeth Photography, outside of the church in a field that gave us such a fun, vintage country look…just what we were hoping to find. We then had our reception at local BBQ restaurant and dance hall, with hanging white lights from the celling, wood floors and bar, Texas country decor across the walls, and a big stage for the DJ to set up. We decorated with burlap and lace tablecloths, handmade mason jar centerpieces, and a green-theme candy bar, and we gave out personalized koozies. We danced the night away in our cowboy boots to our favorite music and favorite friends and family. We wouldn’t trade our wedding day for the world!”

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON SPRING 2015 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE
Rachel & Estevan ~ March 29, 2014
“Estevan and I met in February of 2013 at our mutual friends’ game night where we were the only two single people,” recounts bride Rachel. “They swear it was a coincidence.” Were pretty sure it wasn’t. For their spring wedding, the couple selected a fresh, seasonal palette of in and soft pinks,k and filled their rustic-elegant venue with touches of burlap, mercury glass and vintage furniture including rough-hewn farm tables, refurbished doors and wine barrels. Describing her favorite wedding moments, Rachel recounts sipping margaritas made with her father-in-law’s secret recipe and partying to a lively mix of country, pop and Tejano music. But most of all, she cherishes the memory of her father-daughter dance to The Temptations’ “My Girl.” “My dad sang this song to me while he taught me to swim in our backyard. It is my first memory, and a precious reminder of our relationship.”

Kaitlin and Michael wanted their wedding to be a day of non-stop fun for everyone. Kaitlin wore a gorgeous lace A-line wedding gown from Houston Bridal Gallery and the perfect pair of Badgley Mishcka embellished peep toe pumps *swoon.* Their guests enjoyed a laid-back reception with fun outdoor games like Jenga, bag toss and a (what else?) kissing booth! Sounds like a sweet Southern wedding, right? You bet it was. Take a look at the amazing pictures by Ama Photography & Cinema and see for yourself! Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!
Vintage candleabras, lanterns, lace overlays, vintage vases, and a soft color palette of blush, mint, cream and lush greens are what defined Anna and George’s dreamy, vintage wedding. If you think the décor sounds to die for, wait ‘til you hear about the delish menu! The guests indulged in pistachio-crusted Redfish and New York strip au jus with horseradish cream (mmm) from Café Natalie. We hope you enjoy the beautiful photos from Anna and George’s wedding as much as we do. Thanks Kreative Angle Photography and congrats to the newlyweds!
