Blush, Ivory & Gold Wedding

Kristen and Clayton were first introduced through mutual friends while attending a concert in Downtown Houston. He was determined to meet Kristen again, but the next day Clayton had plans to visit Austin for the weekend. “During the drive, he was contemplating whether or not to turn around and go back to Houston so that he could meet me. Clayton made it to Highway 71 and decided to call our mutual friend, who promised him the chance to see me again if he turned around. Clayton did exactly that. He asked me out on a date and we have been inseparable since,” says Kristen. Two and a half years later Clayton got down on one knee and asked Kristen to marry him in front of the Waterwall. The pair planned a simple, yet elegant springtime affair with the help of Plants N’ Petals and EB Inc Event Rentals & Design for 250 of their nearest and dearest. “Although it rained on our wedding day, I couldn’t believe how perfect it was! There was never a dull moment on the dance floor,” adds Kristen. Congrats to the newlyweds, we wish you the best!

Kelli & A.J. ~ May 17, 2014

Having begun their courtship at the University of Georgia, it’s no surprise that Kelli and A.J. wanted their wedding to “feel like an elegant garden party at a Southern home.” As the bride describes, “The ambiance began with a drive up scenic River Oaks Blvd. with Houston’s most beautiful homes,” and continued with a gracious country-club setting, decorated with soft-pink peonies, mercury-glass votives, twinkle-lights and French armchairs. A reception menu filled with Southern favorites—fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, pulled-pork sliders—nourished guests for a night of dancing to live music. As the night progressed, guests enjoyed hand-rolled Cuban cigars on the starlit patio, and late-night chicken-and-waffle bites. Jo Ann Schwartz Woodward (of wedding consulting firm Schwartz & Woodward) was great at listening to our vision and implementing it flawlessly,” Kelli says. “It was truly the wedding of our dreams!”

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.

Miss USA Wedding at Chateau Cocomar

Crystle & Max ~ August 9, 2014

It would be hard to top Max’s proposal to Crystle for sheer romance: The Belgian-born model alighted with his beloved from a chartered helicopter, then surprised the former Miss USA (2008) with his down-on-one-knee question in front of giddy friends and family dressed in T-shirts reading, “True Love is Crystle Clear.” Yet the couple’s summer wedding did manage to take romance to a whole new level, with a lavish 320-guest celebration set at castle-like Chateau Cocomar. Fittingly, the bride, who currently stars in OWN Network’s Tyler Perry sitcom “For Better or Worse,” was the very picture of a fairytale princess in her Lazaro gown and sparkling updo. And she has special praise for those who brought her regal fantasy to life: “The entire event was coordinated by [venue owner] Karen Martin and the Cocomar ladies,” Crystle notes. “They planned and executed together a tremendously awesome event that will forever be remembered!”
