Anyone who’s experienced the I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian knows how much our amazing Houston wedding florists and decorators love to fill that neoclassical column-lined space up with lots of white, cream and ivory wedding finery. So we’re THRILLED to share with you Mary and Adrian’s Houston wedding, which transforms The Corinthian with an explosion of color. Inspired by the 1920s, the pair’s wedding included Art Deco touches throughout, plus lavish jewel-tone flowers by Events in Bloom, and a magnificent menu from Jackson and Company. “Emily, our wedding planner, also put a Champagne bar in the women’s bathroom,” notes the bride. “Needless to say, that was a favorite among the guests.” Feast your eyes on J. Cogliandro Photography’s images of this bright and beautiful Houston wedding, and join us in wishing Mary and Adrian a lifetime of happiness.
