Ivory, Fuchsia and Navy Wedding at The Sam Houston Hotel

After a slew of online dating disappointments, Imly decided to give it one more shot and emailed Jesse on Match.com. And boy, is she glad she did. Jesse declared his love for Imly on one knee at the top of a mountain during a snowboarding trip in Keystone, Colo., and the rest was history. The pair wanted their downtown Houston rooftop wedding at The Sam Houston Hotel to be fun and as relaxing as possible for their guests–but still super stylish and chic.  Their palette of ivory, fuchsia, blush pink and navy carried through the cake, decor, flowers and wedding party attire–even the bride’s style: Imly went from a drop-waist ivory dress for the ceremony, to a blush-pink sweetheart-neck gown for the reception, to a flirty, short lace dress for the after-party. We could go on and on about Imly and Jesse’s wedding, but we want YOU to see it for yourself. Check out the pics for all the sweet deets.  Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!

Orchid-Filled, Elegant Navy & Champagne Houston Wedding

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Kerry and Kris ~ October 5, 2013

Though they’d always known they’d wed, Kerry and Kris, who were introduced by a mutual friend in 2002, were simply waiting for the timing to be right, “which, for us, just happened to be about 10 years,” the bride says. Kris proposed to his beloved on bended knee at the top of a Colorado ski slope while fellow skiers applauded. “It was magical and I could not have imagined it being any better,” Kerry says. A little over a year later, the pair celebrated with 150 friends and family members, who sat at tables named for the groom’s favorite James Bond movies, and dined on filet mignon and shrimp, followed by slices from a magnificent four-tier wedding cake. The bride’s favorite moment? “Our first dance after we were introduced as husband and wife,” she recounts. “We danced to Aerosmith’s ‘Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.’”

Boho-Chic, Rustic Austin Mansion Wedding

“Our design aim was to discover the intersection between what Barr Mansion had already so beautifully curated and where we found our personality within that,” says bride Jenna of her wedding to adorable Nathan at Austin’s foodie-focused wedding venue. “We took the antique, rustic, free-spirit, artistic, creative, comfortable and natural beauty that was already there and built on that with homegrown flowers, handcrafted centerpieces, personalized paper-cut banners, unique music, DIY’d accent pieces, and a relaxing, lounge-style reception atmosphere.” Even the day’s wet weather was a welcome happenstance. “My mom mentioned that it had rained on her wedding day, and Nathan remarked how the drizzly gray weather looked exactly like where he grew up in Alaska.” We’re delighted to share with you this sweet couple’s lovely wedding, featuring coordination by Kat Creech Events and flowers by Dream Bouquet—make sure to check out more from this talented team of top Houston wedding vendors in the new issue of Weddings in Houston (“Opulence Among the Oaks,” p. 216), on newsstands now!

Pink and Navy Petroleum Club of Houston Wedding

A wedding ceremony is a dramatic occasion—and the vista of downtown Houston, visible via the floor-to-ceiling windows of the Petroleum Club of Houston’s 43rd-floor Discovery Room, is the perfect backdrop for such a scene. Just ask Houston bride Annie, who said her vows to Antonio there, then danced up a storm with 280 friends and family members in celebration of her blessed union. Sweet couple, beautiful wedding, what more could one ask for? Oh—and cheers to Love Lee Photography for the lovely photography

Navy, Gray & Yellow Spring Rooftop Wedding

Of late, we’ve had a flood of truly fabulous proposal stories, and we just gotta say…good work, guys!! You are seriously outdoing yourselves. Take, for instance, Luis, who incorporated his into a photo shoot Herminia was doing as a favor for a good friend of hers. “My friend disappeared to look for his tassel (he was really hiding in the bushes to take pictures of US). Luis showed up with a lens that I really, really wanted. He asked me to take a picture of him so I snapped a couple and when I looked at my camera I noticed he was looking down in one of the photos. I looked at him, and he was knelt down asking me to marry him. It was perfect.” Just about as perfect as the couple’s spring wedding, with its outdoor rooftop wedding ceremony at The Grove—“We provided fans as programs to apologize for the scorching hot Houston sun,” Herminia says—followed by a fun-filled hotel reception for 300 guests. Enjoy these joyful pix of this lovely Houston rooftop wedding, courtesy Jesus Gonzalez Photography, and join us in wishing Herminia and Luis a lifetime of love!
