An oasis of elegance surrounded by lush greenery, the Omni Houston Hotel is an ideal Houston-area wedding venue for couples who want the feel of a destination wedding without having to leave home.
Nestled in the heart of Uptown, the Omni Houston has the feel of a cosmopolitan resort. This AAA Four Diamond property will charm you with its modern-chic decor, exceptional service, luxurious accommodations and exceptional cuisine. Whether your wedding is small and intimate or grand and formal, the Omni Houston can accommodate you and your guests in one of its three beautiful ballrooms. You can also opt to celebrate your special day outdoors, with a lakeside ceremony in the hotel’s lush gardens, or a poolside reception beneath a starlit sky.
“On May 13, 2010, my mom said all that she wanted for her birthday was for me to join Jdate.com, a Jewish online dating service. I was very hesitant but how could I turn down her birthday wish? I briefly searched the men available and stumbled upon ‘bluesman84.’ I had just moved back to Houston after going to college in NYC to study music business. With that kind of screen name, I had to talk to him. He was the first and last guy I ever spoke to on the site and we both never logged back on after that.” They never needed to, after all. By that time, Nicole and South African transplant Daniel were well on their way to forever. With her Russian and his South African background, the couple’s wedding was full of cultural touchstones, starting with its theme: “‘L’chaim, Cheers, Na’zdarova’—all three of these words mean ‘to life,’ but are said three different ways,” explains Nicole. Along with homage to their heritages, Nicole and Daniel’s wedding at the Omni Houston Hotel was rich with music. “My husband, who plays guitar, got on stage and sang a song he wrote to me, as well as a one-song reunion with his high-school band.” A treat for the couple, their 230 guests—many having traveled from locales including Israel, South Africa, Germany, London and Australia—the wedding, we can only imagine, was an especially sweet treat for Nicole’s mom, who got her birthday wish, and then some. Congratulations to all, and sincere thanks to Morgan Lynn Photography for the pretty pix.
Who says magnificence and make-your-own mac ’n cheese don’t mix? Certainly not Jordann nor Micah—the Houston couple’s Omni Houston Hotel wedding is a stellar example of what you get when you blend opulence with comfort—fabulousness with FUN! The pair, who met at UT Austin in 2005, treated their 300 wedding guests to an evening of sublime elegance, marked with plenty of personal, comforting touches, like a gorgeous tiered cinnamon cake with old-fashioned buttercream icing by Who Made The Cake.

Congratulations, Jordann and Micah!
