Red, Black and Gold Winter Wedding at the Magnolia Hotel by DC Stanley Photography

How’s THIS for a proposal story? “It was a night of reliving ‘firsts’—a Rockets game (our first official meeting), dinner at Vic & Anthony’s (our first official date), drinks at Hotel Zaza…,” says bride Brie Anna. “On a balcony overlooking the Museum District, he surprised me with a hand-drawn charcoal portrait of the two of us. The entire portrait was black and white, EXCEPT for a canary-yellow diamond engagement ring placed on my ring finger within the picture. My eyes were instantly drawn to the yellow image and I turned to find Craig down on one knee!” The couple’s December wedding, with its Catholic church ceremony and “lounge-feel” Magnolia Hotel reception—“NO traditional seating—cocktail-style vignettes and comfortable couches,” the bride recounts—captured the festiveness of the season, as did the surprise “flash mob” organized for the groom! Congratulations to the happy couple, and thanks to DC Stanley Photography for the fantastic photos of the fabulous winter wedding.

Red & White Western Wedding by Adam Nyholt Photography

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Jordan and Moises ~ March 15, 2014

“Hook, line and sinker,” is how Jordan describes her feeling about Moises when the then-Sigma-Chi-president texted her, “I like your boots,” following the fraternity-chapter meeting where the two first met working on a philanthropic project. While Moises proposed in Paris, the couple’s wedding was Tex-Mex all the way, from their Houston Livestock Show rehearsal dinner to their menu of chips-and-queso, tamales and plantain-crusted chicken, to the custom Texas-flag boots the bride wore at her reception—which took place, incidentally, at her family’s vast horse ranch, where Jordan spent much of her youth. With their wedding, she adds, she and Moises strove for “a tasteful balance between our down-to-earth roots and our love for rich color and bold decor—basically the chicest darn ranch shindig this cowgirl has ever seen!”

Red, White, Green and Black Olde Dobbin Station Wedding by The Silhouette Studio

Lifelong lovebirds Hannah and Evan made their dreams come true when they tied the knot this past July. Held at beloved country-chic venue Olde Dobbin Station, the couple’s wedding was “eclectic,” says Hannah. “We didn’t want it to be too much of any style. I tried my best to incorporate my husband’s modern and rustic styles with my love for typography and flowers.” For all its visual allure, Hannah says her favorite part of their wedding was “saying our vows.” She notes: “We had waited so long to be able to commit ourselves to each other. It was a dream-come-true.” With its bright pops of rich red, and its touches of vintage lace, homemade cookies and its delightful ceremony-backdrop chalkboard, this sweet Houston wedding is one of our faves of the summer. Big thanks to photographer extraordinaire Sarah Bouchard-Williams of The Silhouette Studio for the lovely-as-always photos, and our most sincere best wishes to the young newlyweds!
