WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Michelle and Chris ~ September 14, 2013

While Michelle admits that meeting Chris as a high-school senior “was not love at first sight, as I was not looking for a boyfriend,” her future husband’s persistence paid off. Seven years after they met, the couple joined together in matrimony, with an elegant wedding in Chateau Cocomar’s magnificent castle-like setting, complete with marble floors and twinkling chandeliers. Michelle’s chosen palette of soft neutrals and a hint of blush pink created an air of timeless romance—the perfect backdrop for the newlyweds’ first dance (Michelle’s favorite wedding memory), and every moment thereafter. At the night’s close, guests held aloft 20-inch-long sparklers as Mr. and Mrs. O’Malley shared a kiss.

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Iris and James ~ March 8, 2014

Who says cheap wings and 99-cent margaritas can’t possibly lead to true love? Neither Iris nor James, that’s for sure. The lovebirds, who met randomly at a Pasadena, Texas, Western bar, “hung out all night that night, and have been hanging ever since,” Iris says. In 2012, James surprised Iris at her “Ugly Christmas Sweater” graduation party, bearing a piñata filled with faux diamonds and ring pops. “I finally got to take my blindfold off, and James went down on his knee and proposed to me in front of everyone,” Iris recalls. “And, of course, tears, happiness and Facebook posts ensued.” The couple’s vintage-elegant wedding, with its shades of coral, ivory and gray, and its touches of burlap and lace, was the perfect expression of their tastes, and their love. Iris says she’ll never forget “running through the corridor of ribbon wands during our final send-off.”

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Lisa and Donald ~ January 19, 2014

While their Match.com introduction might not be the essence of tradition, Don’s request to Lisa’s dad for permission to marry his daughter certainly was. “After getting my dad’s blessing, he dropped to one knee and I said, ‘Yes!’” recalls the bride—who also happens to be director of catering and conferences for one of Houston’s most revered wedding venues: The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. Naturally, the couple wed at Lisa’s longtime place of employment, aided in planning by the hotel’s social catering manager, Jim Gray. Highlights of the joyful occasion included a ceremony filled with poignant readings by the couple’s many family members. Avid foodies both, Don and Lisa incorporated wine pairings into their lavish menu, and treated guests to exquisite desserts, almond-and-raspberry wedding cake, and postprandial cigars. “My favorite part of the night was singing and dancing with my niece and goddaughter Caroline to—yes—‘Sweet Caroline,’ by Neil Diamond,” Lisa recalls happily. “The entire room joined in!”

Enchanted Garden Theme Wedding by Sarah Ainsworth Photography

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Though they met in high school in 2001, Nancy and Matthew didn’t connect until a chance Facebook “happy birthday” greeting a decade later. “She asked me what I had been up to all those years,” recounts Matthew. “I didn’t feel like typing out my whole life, so I asked her to lunch instead.” That lunch lasted five hours; two and half years later, the couple celebrated their lifelong vows with an “enchanted-forest”-theme wedding, where 330 guests dined and danced the night away—but not before being treated to a concept video, screened before the pair’s reception entrance, that cast them as CIA agents with one last mission to accomplish before they could get married. “At the end of the video, there was a caption that read, ‘Will they make it on time?’” says Matthew. “That’s when our emcee introduced us and we heard the crowd yelling as we walked in. It set the tone for what turned out to be the most perfect night ever.” Big thanks to Weddings in Houston fave Sarah Ainsworth Photography for capturing that perfection in equally perfect pix.

Vintage-Elegant Houston Wedding by Motley Melange Photography

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

There’s just something so darn sweet (and LOL funny) about this journalistic, third-party courtship story we received on behalf of Houston couple Amy and Jimmy: “After seeing a picture of Amy through a friend’s Facebook, Jimmy was determined to meet her and asked a friend of his to introduce him to her. The introduction was made, but the first date was not made until six months later. Jimmy and Amy had dinner and bonded while watching the first ‘Paranormal Activity’ movie. Since then, they have watched every ‘Paranormal Activity’ movie except for the fourth one, due to Jimmy being out of the country during their anniversary.” See what we mean?? Think that’s cute, just check out their understated, vintage-elegant Houston wedding, with its white, gold, gray and pink palette, and Amy’s gorgeous, keyhole-back Monique Lhuillier gown. Cheers to the newlyweds, and big thanks to Motley Melange Photography for the lovely photos.
