Friday, May 26th, 2017

“They are inventive, edgy…but can also bring in that elegant softness, for a princess.”

Yeah, Janice (the recent bride who wrote these words in praise of Haute Flowers & Events)—we know exactly what you mean. We’ve been lucky enough to be partnered up with this talented League City-based event design studio for a few years now, and we can confirm that this balance of innovation and good ol’ fashioned pretty is what owner Teresa Vencil is all about.

And here’s the part where we put our money where our mouths are. OK, actually we’re gonna put our photos where our typing is. Or something like that. Just bear with us, darlings, it’s Friday, we’re hard at work on a brand-new magazine for y’all, and we’re a little loopy. But most of all, we’re a whole lot in love with these inventive, elegant, innovative, pretty, totally individual Haute Flowers & Events creations:

The Floral Lanterns: These great lanterns, accented with flowering branches and bright, boisterous blooms, hung over the head table at Sadie & Aneel’s wedding reception. We love the mix of the angular lanterns with delicate, spherical votive holders.

The Coordinating Flower Crown & Bouquet: You don’t need to be an ultra-boho bride to rock a flower crown—not if the Haute Flowers crew has anything to say about it. They designed this lovely set with refinement in mind, echoing the bouquet’s pale greenery and shades of coral, pink and yellow, in a sweet crown, completed with a sheer, flowing veil. Bonus points for groom’s cool boutonniere!

The Succulent Jewelry: Vencil and her designers created these vintage-inspired pieces exclusively for us, for this recent styled shoot, so we’re, oh, just a little bit partial to them. Plus, they’re gorge. Plus, wearing plants on your body is so freakin’ chic.

The Branch Canopy: Also created just for our shoot, this canopy is a little rustic, a little untamed, a little outside-the-box…and completely charming. It’s the perfect complement to a colorful, organic-feeling table design that looks completely at home inside the brick walls of Butler’s Courtyard, where this fantasy weddingscape was shot.

The Floral Dress: It’s a dress. Made out of flowers. And it’s…uh-mazing. ‘Nuff said.

Little Ones — There is nothing like having an adorable child carry a sign down the aisle, in advance of the bride and groom, to ease wedding-day tension, and get everyone laughing.

Destination Sessions — We love to travel the world, and destination weddings are always extra special. The Golden Gate Bridge was a perfect backdrop for Anthone and Ashley. We can’t wait to capture their love in a California vineyard at their upcoming wedding.

A Gushing Groom — Some men do not like taking engagement photos. But after we ease their nerves and they get comfortable in front of the lens, their love and affection can be felt from both sides.

Bridal Portraits — Kristen brought her A-game to her bridal shoot at The Corinthian. Her gorgeous lace dress, and the grand columns and uplighting, set the stage for us to get the perfect shot.

Welcome Mr. and Mrs. — Jacob and Gabby were so elated the moment they were introduced as Mr. and Mrs. The crowd went wild, and this moment made all the planning and waiting worthwhile.

Letting Loose — This is the moment when all the major events are over and the bride and groom can let their hair down and dance. The Bartons are both doctors and have stressful jobs, so it was awesome to see them let loose on the dance floor.

Lively Plum & Burgundy Hindu Wedding at The Corinthian

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.”

Sangeet

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.
