In what just may have been the most hotly anticipated Houston wedding venue debut in as long as we can remember, Chateau Cocomar celebrated its grand opening on Friday, July 27. And let’s just say the magnificent Moulin-Rouge-theme bash proved it was worth the wait. The magnificent chandeliers! The soaring arches! The acres and acres of gleaming, gorgeous marble! Taking all this stunning space and transforming it into a wonderland of event possibilities—with a titillating turn-of-the-century-French-cabaret edge—were some exceptional Houston vendors, helmed by planner extraordinaire Aurora Perez-Smith of Occasio Productions, and including Bright Star Productions (lighting), Elegant Beginnings (linens) and Cordua Catering (cuisine), among others. Feast your eyes on these fabulous event photos from J. Cogliandro—and take a couple of minutes to check out the terrific video clip by Dakine Films. We have no doubt that prime dates for this beautiful venue will fill FAST…so if you’re thinking le chateau may just be the perfect Houston wedding site for the day and night of your dreams, we suggest scheduling your tour tout de suite!
