Black, White & Blue Wedding at Crystal Ballroom at The Rice by Ever & Anon Photography

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Michael planned the sweetest proposal for his high school sweetheart Sarah. “After dinner, Michael told me to put a blindfold on. He took me to several places around Kingwood where we had special memories: our first kiss, where he first told me he loved me, and our old high school meet-up spot. At each stop, Michael gave me a rose and proceeded to tell me a reason why he loved me at every spot. The final stop was at the golf course where Michael and I had our first date. When I took off the blindfold, he was down on one knee with rose petals scattered around him and a bottle of champagne. After I said “yes”, Michael had gathered both of our families to celebrate,” says bride Sarah. A sweet proposal story like this deserves an even sweeter wedding. Just take a look at the fabulous pictures by Ever & Anon Photography. We can guarantee you’ll be swooning. Best wishes and congrats to the newlyweds!

Shannon & Tyler ~ June 21, 2014

Oh, how we love a well-planned proposal. Take, for example, Tyler’s to Shannon: After a sunny day of boating together on Austin’s Lake Travis, the groom-to-be feigned a “late” dinner reservation and led his beloved to Windy Point Park, where, after telling Shannon how much he loved her, he spun her around to face the words, “Will You Marry Me?” spelled in rose petals in the sand. He then proceeded to place a ring that he had custom designed for his one-and-only on her shaking-with-excitement hand. The couple’s Crystal Ballroom at The Rice wedding, with its sophisticated palette of blush, navy and gold, and its romantic candlelit glow, wasn’t just elegant—it was also a whole lot of fun: “Everyone enjoyed letting loose and dancing the night away,” Shannon says. “The dance floor was never empty. It was a night of a lifetime!”

Lisa & Joel ~ September 20, 2014

As Houston Rockets director of broadcasting Joel Blank recounts his initial blind date with KHOU-TV anchor Lisa Hernandez: “We had our first date, and knew we had gone on our last first date.” The couple made it official with a lovely late-summer wedding at the dazzling Crystal Ballroom at The Rice, where guests dug into fajitas, indulged in a decadent “dessert gallery,” and danced the night away. We don’t know who’s luckier—the bride, who, dressed in her stunning Ines Di Santo mermaid gown, tearfully exchanged vows with the man of her dreams, or the groomsmen, who each went home with an NBA game ball signed by Dwight Howard, James Harden, Kevin McHale, Calvin Murphy, Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon. You be the judge!

Anita & Johnny ~ March 22, 2014

Sometimes a pickup line is more than a pickup line—sometimes it’s the beginning of forever. At a sports bar where each of them happened to be celebrating with friends, Anita stole a glance at Johnny, who worked up the nerve to approach her. “The bartender told me you ordered a real man,” he grinned at her. “The fun and laughter hasn’t stopped since,” Anita says. Four years later, Johnny surprised Anita with a December Disneyland proposal, complete with fireworks and faux snow; 15 months after that, the pair wed in sensational style at the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice, surrounded by vibrant jewel tones, candlelight, brilliant crystal sparkle, and 150 of their most beloved friends and family members. Which we love. But what we love even more about this spectacular Houston wedding is that groom Johnny was the one who shared it with us—and in doing so, shared, with us, and all of you, his love story with the love of his life, Anita. Which we really, really, really love.
