Bright and Beautiful Wedding by Adam Nyholt

It was December 2013 when Ben took Matti on a surprise horse-drawn carriage ride to look at Christmas lights. “We stopped under one of the brightest trees to take a picture and as soon as we started smiling, he turned to me and got down on one knee! I don’t think he even asked me to marry him because he was so nervous. I shook my head ‘yes’ anyway. Our entire family and friends were waiting for us to celebrate!” says Matti.  Their fall, jewel-tone wedding was one for the books. Check out the gorgeous photos by Adam Nyholt and see for yourself…and MEET Adam for yourself at the incredible I Do! Wedding Soiree @ The Four Seasons Hotel on Oct., 18, 2-5 p.m (tickets here)! Congrats, Matti and Ben. We wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Rustic Southern Wedding by Akil Bennett Photography

Lindsey and her groom David wanted a rustic, yet elegant outdoor wedding that combined their Texan roots and laid-back style. “I wanted candles and flowers, and lots of them,” says Lindsey. “I wanted a night that not only represented and honored David and I, but our families and friends as well,” she adds. Soft lighting, wooden accents, hints of burlap and a soft color palette made Lindsey and David’s vision of a night underneath-the-stars come to life. We fell in love with their wedding and are sure you will, too. Thanks Akil Bennett for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!

Rustic Mint, Taupe and Pale Pink Outdoor Wedding

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON SPRING 2015 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Rachel & Estevan ~ March 29, 2014

“Estevan and I met in February of 2013 at our mutual friends’ game night where we were the only two single people,” recounts bride Rachel.  “They swear it was a coincidence.” Were pretty sure it wasn’t. For their spring wedding, the couple selected a fresh, seasonal palette of in and soft pinks,k and filled their rustic-elegant venue with touches of burlap, mercury glass and vintage furniture including rough-hewn farm tables, refurbished doors and wine barrels. Describing her favorite wedding moments, Rachel recounts sipping margaritas made with her father-in-law’s secret recipe and partying to a lively mix of country, pop and Tejano music. But most of all, she cherishes the memory of her father-daughter dance to The Temptations’ “My Girl.” “My dad sang this song to me while he taught me to swim in our backyard. It is my first memory, and a precious reminder of our relationship.”

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Sarah and Logan ~ October 5, 2013

Middle-school classmates who attended separate high schools then reconnected in college, Sarah and Logan have a long Houston history and a lot of family and friends between them. Their choice of Wimberley’s Old Glory Ranch as the venue for their festive fall wedding gave them the opportunity to celebrate with 300 of their nearest and dearest in a setting of privacy and natural splendor. “The theme for our wedding was ‘shabby chic’ and rustic,” explains Sarah. “Everything was perfect”—from the “beautiful flowers” to the “delicious food” to the “mismatched vintage china.” Best of all, she adds, was having those she loved most make their way to the Hill Country for an unforgettable destination wedding conveniently close to home.
