Modern Black & White Wedding at Hotel ZaZa by Adam Nyholt

This week, as all of us take shelter from the unprecedented deluge of Hurricane Harvey, and take stock of everything that is dear and precious to us, we will be sharing some of our favorite weddings of the last few years. If you need an escape, a moment of peace, a reminder of the importance of family, friends and, above all, love, please settle in, snuggle down and join us. And once the storm clouds clear, and the water recedes, let us know what we can do to help you. We are all in this together. #BeStrongHouston #LoveConquersAll

Houston bride Rozlind wanted her wedding to be a fabulous party that still had a warm, inviting feeling. From the black and white decor, to the all-white flowers, and romantic candlelit ballroom at Hotel ZaZa, Rozlind and Matthew’s wedding was the definition of modern glam. If you think all of this sounds glamorous, just wait till you see Rozlind’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown and Nicholas Kirkwood peep-toe lace heels! Thanks, Adam Nyholt, for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!

Rustic-Elegant Barn Wedding by Plants N’ Petals

If we were to give out awards for adorable proposal stories, we’d definitely have to hand one out to Houston couple Britnie and Valentino. “When Britnie and I first started dating, we used to jam out to ‘Anyone Else But You’ by The Moldy Peaches, but we added our own lyrics,” says Valentino. So, naturally, when Valentino had the opportunity to propose to Britnie in front of 200 people at a church retreat, he decided to sing out the beloved indie hit…his way. It went a little something like this: “I am a Jedi and you were an English major/I’ll always protect you with my blue light saber/Here I kneel on this one knee/Oh Britnie, will you tell me you’ll marry me/Because I don’t see this ring more fitting for anyone else but you.” Just like that he swept his beloved off her feet, and they tied the knot a year later with their dearest family and friends in attendance, surrounded by insanely gorgeous flowers and decor from Plants N’ Petals. They even included their favorite Houston hangouts, Southside Espresso, as a vendor at the wedding, which “gave our guests a great non-alcoholic option,” the groom says. Congratulations, Britnie & Valentino, and thank you SO MUCH for sharing your beautiful celebration with us!

Lush White, Ivory & Gray Houston Wedding

After spending their first date in a yoga class, Keri and Michael decided to take their next outing to get to know each other better while strolling through Houston’s Buffalo Bayou Park. A date well spent, and a gorgeous Houston sunset later, the fitness-and-outdoors lovers decided to meet again… the very next day. Little did they know that Houston’s natural beauty would play into every major milestone they celebrated next.

Michael popped the question to Keri during an “all-day date” that began near a garden complete with an arbor of blooming red roses, where Keri was shocked to find Michael down on one knee!  “We spent the rest of the day talking about how we arrived to this exciting day,” Keri says. “And the 12-hour ‘date’ concluded with a surprise dinner Michael had arranged for both of our families at one of his favorite restaurants
!”

To nobody’s surprise, the couple’s love of the outdoors played right into their nuptials and reception, as well, with lush phalaenopsis orchids, calla lilies and white tulips by Plants N’ Petals accenting rustic barn tables. “We chose orchids as our main flower for their meaning, and also for their simple elegance,” Keri says.

Keri donned a classic silk dress from  Joan Pillow Bridal Salon on the big day, complete with a chic oversized bow in back. The couple sealed the deal with stunning rings from Zadok Jewelers and invited their intimate group of 120 guests to celebrate with invitations and stationery from Bering’s. They began their new life together as a married couple with registry items from Kuhl-Linscomb.
