Vintage Blush and Gold Wedding at Ashton Gardens

Houston bride Tera first met her prince charming right around the corner- literally. Tera and Shawn lived in the same neighborhood, attended the same schools, and shared mutual friends. It wasn’t until he came back home from the Air Force 11 years later that they reunited at their best friend’s wedding. Tera and Shawn hit it off and the rest was history. The lovebirds celebrated with 80 of their nearest and dearest at one of Houston’s most unique wedding venues- Ashton Gardens. The romantic chandeliers and color palette of blush, cream and gold set the tone for their vintage wedding. Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!

You’re head over heels, you’re blissfully betrothed, you’re getting all ready to get hitched—let’s face it: You, love, are pretty much exactly the kind of girl Valentine’s Day was made for.

And here, love, are just a handful of our favorite Valentine’s Day gifts, goodies and indulgences, courtesy a few great Weddings in Houston partners—for you, for him, for the two of you together. Enjoy!

Here’s an idea: Knock off work early and meet your man for a romantic spa escape, courtesy Hotel ZaZa Houston’s decadent ZaSpa. Try a 50- or 80-minute Swedish-style his-n-hers massage with warm scented oils in the luxury of the spa’s exclusive couple’s room. Top things off with a private 45-minute soak in a deep tub for two. Reservations are required!

Next, slip into something sexy…like a stunning piece from one of Zadok Jewelers’ spectacular collections. Not sure what kind of jewelry you might fancy? Check out Zadok’s Valentine’s Day gift recommendations, courtesy CultureMap.

Dressed to the nines, and sporting your new bit of Valentine’s Day sparkle, make your way to Brennan’s Houston, for a sumptuous prix-fixe dinner of Louisiana-blue-crab-and-caviar crepes, Creole-mustard-crusted lamb chops and—what else?—your favorite French bubbly. Again, rezzies are a must…so make ‘em!

But you may want to skip dessert—that will come a little later, when you head home to snuggle up and hunker down with a to-die-for red velvet or white-chocolate-raspberry Nothing Bundt Cakes Valentine’s Day cake. Let him feed it to you (great practice for your upcoming wedding reception!), and let that ridiculously delicious butter-cream-cheese frosting make your toes curl with pleasure.

The rest of the evening, love, is up to you…

Happy Valentine’s Day!
