What happens when a Houston bride wants a winter wonderland wedding? She makes it happen! Kaylin took her ideas from Pinterest, created all of the decor herself and became the queen of DIY. “I cut down tallow trees from my mom’s property and spray painted all of them white and threw on epsom salts for some shimmer. I used 14 of them to line the chapel aisle so that it looked like I was walking through a winter wonderland,” she says. Favorite moment? “While I was walking down the aisle and saw Michael’s face…it made all the hard work worth it.” See all of our favorite DIY moments from Kaylin and Michael’s winter affair in the lovely photos below!
WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature
Farnaz & Amir ~ January 4, 2014
New to Houston while preparing for her wedding, bride Farnaz found planning her perfect day a bit of a challenge. But, with the help of close friend, she did her research—and created an event she’d never forget. The bride wed her groom, Amir, in a traditional Persian ceremony, attended by 100 of their closest friends and family, after which the newlyweds joined their guests for a Mediterranean feast, followed by dancing—lots and lots of dancing, which, the bride says, is her fondest memory of the big day. Award-winning Houston event-design firm Plants N’ Petals lent its fine floral talents to the black-tie affair, making a beautiful day even more beautiful.
Drop waist and sheath gowns have taken over the runway and our favorite Houston bridal salons. This flattering silhouette looks great on every shape and pairs beautifully with a sweetheart neckline. We’ve narrowed it down to our top fave gowns from the 2015 Bridal Market runway. Which one is your fave?
