Asmita and Rishab kicked off the New Year with a marriage celebration that perfectly captured the couple’s exuberant personalities and Hindu culture. Asmita says it was their “shared love of music and dancing” that initially attracted her to Rishab, and vice versa, which they certainly expressed on their wedding day!
The night began with a lively sangeet, which Asmita says was “a very cool way to kick off the celebration, with killer dance performances by both sides of the family, mehndi artists and a selfie station.”
For their Hindu ceremony and reception celebration at The Corinthian, downtown Houston’s magnificent neoclassical event space, the couple selected a palette of bright plum and burgundy, brought to life with blooms by Darryl & Co. The couple’s 350 guests then enjoyed a wedding feast by renowned Jackson and Company catering, and later joined the newlyweds for a lavish party filled with live music and dancing that lasted until 1:30 a.m.

There’s a certain, special, sense-of-mystery romance that only online dating can create. Just ask recent bride Vanessa, who spoke by phone to eHarmony match Eric almost every day for THREE MONTHS before meeting him face-to-face. Luckily, their in-person meeting was just as romantic as those many, many phone calls, and almost two years to the day they first laid eyes on each other, the pair wed in front of 250 loved ones at a magnificent Madera Estates celebration. While Vanessa says that selecting her song list and making her seating chart were no piece of cake, the wedding itself was pure sweetness, done up in elegant shades of ivory and blush, Vanessa radiant in her Maggie Sottero gown from Brickhouse Bridal. But let us go ahead and let Ama Photography & Cinema’s photos tell the story of this lovely couple’s special day. Best wishes, Vanessa & Eric!

Cosmopolitan bride Ashley Thomas was the picture of sophistication at her City Centre wedding to pro ballplayer Sean Danielson. And planner Ashley Fuentes of Event Solutions made sure the event was, too. The pair chose City Centre for its all-in-one accessibility—ideal for a multi-day celebration where more than half of the 300 guests hailed from out of town. When wedding events weren’t taking place, guests could walk to restaurants, shops, movies and more. For the big event itself, the couple’s vendor team transformed The Plaza at City Centre with a seriously amazing tent. “As I walked out of the hotel and towards the tent in the plaza, onlookers and passersby erupted in cheer,” Ashley recounts. “It was truly unlike anything I have ever seen before.” At the couple’s high-energy celebration, set inside Norris Conference Center, celebrants helped themselves to drinks from an 8-foot-long ice bar and danced all night under cascades of crystals. An elegantly adult affair, the wedding wasn’t without its softer side. A kids’ reception in the ballroom next door had karaoke, movies, kids’ finger foods and a baby Capuchin monkey, all overseen by certified babysitters. And in lieu favors, the couple gave each guest an opportunity to select one of three charities to be the beneficiary of a generous donation. Glowing, glittering, thoughtful, unforgettable—Ashley and Sean’s wedding is a true beauty. Thanks to Miabella Photography for the very pretty pictures, and congratulations to the happy couple!
