White, Gold, Champagne & Green Wedding at The Houstonian Hotel

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Mona and Aamir are what we like to call a jet-setting couple. They met in New York City, he proposed in Chicago, and they got married in Houston! Their multicultural wedding weekend went a little something like this: It started with a mehndi—a South Asian ritual ceremony with henna and dancing followed by an intimate nikkah—a Muslim wedding ceremony—at home.

The last day of their nuptial celebrations was a lavish Persian wedding ceremony at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. “It was held in the Grande Ballroom which truly captured the essence of the sophisticated feel we were going for,” says Mona.

Dream Bouquet decked out the reception with tall white and lush green floral centerpieces and placed green boxwood panels on the walls to add an outdoorsy touch to the decor.

“One of our favorite moments was when our friends picked both of us up in a chair on the dance floor,” recounts Mona. And we gotta say…it’s one of ours, too. Congratulation to the newlyweds, and thank you for sharing your beautiful celebration with us, and our followers!

Shotgun Bride (But Not That Kind!) By Steve Lee Weddings

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Don’t let them dimples fool ya. Behind that sweet exterior, that gorgeous Judd Waddell gown, that flawless hair and makeup, beats the heart of a hunter. As photographer Steve Lee explains, “During her engagement shoot, Shayla mentioned she likes to hunt and that she might bring her shotgun to the bridal. I wasn’t sure if she was kidding, but to my surprise, she did bring it!” And boy did it make for some seriously stunning shots. Um, as in, photos. Sure, Lee had to scout something fierce to find a downtown spot far away from the eyes of potentially freaked-out onlookers (not to mention keeping clear of cops), but as a fine art photographer who makes it his job to get the perfect shot, that’s precisely what he did. Congratulations, Shayla, and kudos to you for making your bridal session your very own! How about y’all? What personal item(s) would you bring to your bridal shoot to make it a reflection of your unique you-ness? Let us know!
