Sarah and Humberto’s Houston garden wedding has it all, y’all. There’s the beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony surrounded by friends, family and sunshine, at indoor-outdoor Houston wedding venue Hughes Manor. There’s the chic navy, blush and gold wedding palette, executed in elegant style inside Hughes Manor’s modern-vintage interior. And there’s the TDF wedding cake from Cakes By Gina, with its metallic stacks and floral accents. Seriously, it’s just a flat-out fabulous Houston garden wedding, and we can’t get enough (kinda like the guests couldn’t get enough of those insane crab puff tostadas from Cordúa Catering…OMG, yum!!). Thank you, Sarah and Humberto for sharing your incredibly special day with us. Wishing you a lifetime of love, joy…and dancing. xo Click here to read the rest of this post »

Gray, Cream & Merlot Spring Wedding at The Bryan Museum

Who says work romances do not end well? Christina and James prove just the opposite. The pair met at work, when James was tasked with training his future-bride-to-be for his old position following a promotion. This turned out to be a life-changing encounter. After a whirlwind two-month romance, James proposed, knowing he had found the one. As avid fans of the Houston Astros, James surprised Christina with a custom Heidi Gibson ring at Minute Maid Park during the Astros’ Holiday at the Park event. With 45 guests, the pair held an intimate outdoor ceremony under the gazebo at The Bryan Museum in Galveston. “We wanted a minimalist look, showcasing the commitment we wanted to make to each other,” the bride says. The celebration continued their celebration amidst the quaint elegance of the museum’s glass-enclosed conservatory. Christina and James show just how unexpected true love can be. Best wishes to this adorable couple!

Hockley Texas Wedding Venue 15 Acres  Photo: Dream Photo & Video

How’d you like to get married in a brand-spanking-new venue–one that has outdoor ceremony space overlooking a scenic pond, and indoor party space in a chic and contemporary ballroom with glittering chandeliers and massive windows, set on acres of verdant grounds? You can at 15 Acres–one of our fave new wedding venues, located a short hop northwest of Houston, in picturesque Hockley. What else we love about this versatile local-destination-wedding spot? We were just getting to that…

1.) New space, experienced owners. Mother-and-daughter team Stephanie and Ari have a combined 25 years of event-planning experience, so while the venue may be brand new, the team running it have established vendor relationships and extensive venue management expertise.

2.) Full flexibility or full service: your choice. Another rare find is the ability to select a full-service package, including everything from flowers to food to photo booths, or total flexibility when it comes to bringing in outside vendors. 15 Acres offers both options, as well as “in-between” services, where they can take care of segments of your wedding, and let you handle the rest.

3.) Pre-wedding prep space for gals and guys alike. Since facility rental at 15 Acres includes a full 12 hours of access, it’s nice to know that both the bride and bridesmaids, and groom and groomsmen, will have use of private, well-appointed, beautifully decorated dressing rooms/lounge space for the duration of their special day, ensuring maximum relaxation…and maximum impact when they make their way down the aisle!

Evening Garden Wedding at Hughes Manor

Thora and John Henry’s love story begins in a biology class at Houston’s Bellaire High School, when he was a sophomore and she was a freshman. “At the time we met, John Henry had sustained an arm injury allowing him to rely heavily on me for help with notes and such,” Thora tells us. It’s the “and such” that evolved into the love of their lifetimes, culminating in a surprise proposal at the James Turrell Skyspace at Rice U. Six months later, the former high-school sweethearts joined 250 of their nearest and dearest for a lively, lovely, let-your-hair-down celebration of their union at Washington Ave.’s hidden garden wedding gem, Hughes Manor where revelers dined on fresh ceviche and beef tenderloin, and danced the night away, until the couple’s sparkler exit at the end of the night. Please join us in thanking this sweet Houston couple for sharing their wedding day (and all its sparkling, special details) with us!
