Weddings in Houston Celebrates 30 Years

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

30 years of brides. 30 years of grooms. 30 years of “I said, ‘Yes!'” and “It was the best night of my life!” 30 years of first looks, first dances, first newlywed kisses. 30 years of fairytale gowns and joyful tears and dreams come true. The thing about being Houston’s longest published wedding magazine is that while weddings may be once-in-a-lifetime, we get to live and breathe weddings, and the joy they bring, day in and day out, year after year. And on Sept. 21, we celebrated that gift, and the incredible vendors and wedding experts who make it possible, with a magnificent gala at Corinthian – Houston.

Here, we share a glimpse at the fun and fabulousness of our 30th Anniversary Gala and Client Appreciation Party. Like many Houston events, our gala was affected by Hurricane Harvey’s wrath. With a sudden city power outage affecting our original host venue, The Ballroom at Bayou Place, our team of professionals had 24 hours to move this 300-person formal event to the Corinthian-Houston. We were so impressed with the level of ingenuity and unflappable professionalism each partner exhibited. Without missing a beat, they provided gorgeous decor, delicious food, a full bar and incredible music, creating a night to remember.

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to our partners, without whom we could not have celebrated in such extraordinary style: Boyd Bryan of Corinthian – Houston for hosting us at such short notice, Craig Howard and Kirksey Gregg of  The Ballroom at Bayou Place (which, in spite of a city power outage, is very much in business and continues to host amazing events) for providing our bar and waitstaff; Darryl & Co. and Bright Star Productions for the exquisite decor and lighting; Danny Ray And The Acoustic Production and LG Entertainment  for getting everyone on the dance floor;  GTX Productions for outstanding video and sound; Jackson and Company, Lola Catering, The Hometown Chef, A La Carte Catering and Bailey Connor Catering for providing an array of delicious food; Susie’s Cakes & Confections and Cakes by Gina for the delectable desserts; Wink by Erica for the macaron favors; and our fantastic gala photographer Civic Photos.

Black, White and Silver Chateau Cocomar Wedding by DC Stanley Photography

Monday, March 24th, 2014

The tailgate scene at the Sept. 8, 2012, Texas A&M vs. Florida game was pretty much the perfect spot for Chisholm’s marriage proposal to Samantha—after all, the A&M alums are both huge football fans. The pair’s Chateau Cocomar wedding, with its elegant palette of black, white and silver, was the very picture of elegance, but with plenty of laid-back, high-spirited fun. Samantha says she especially cherishes the wedding memory of “being sung to by my husband and all of his fraternity brothers.” Big thanks to DC Stanley Photography for the pretty pix of this utterly adorable Houston couple, and congrats to the newlyweds!

Behind the Scenes: Weddings in Houston’s August Issue Launch Party

Ever wonder what Houston’s finest wedding vendors are doing when they’re not creating, you know, totally incredible weddings? Well, on July 21 , 300 of them were living it up at La Colombe d’Or—site of the Weddings in Houston August 2011 Issue Launch Party!

The lively and visually stunning (of course) bash—with fabulous country-French décor and luscious flowers from Rob Smith of Events in Bloom—brought out many of the city’s most in-demand wedding vendors. Among them, Susie’s Cakes & Confections and Cake Creations, whose dazzling and decadent cakes were so “so beautiful, it was a sin to cut them!” noted Weddings in Houston publisher Radhika Day. As if these divine cakes weren’t enough, the sweet gals from SWEET gifted guests with to-die-for French macaroons (big with Houston brides for 2011-2012 weddings–if you haven’t yet, you’ve seriously got to try them).

Of course, this being a Weddings in Houston party, you better believe some amazing entertainment was on the menu. Guests couldn’t get enough of the killer DJ and alluring “table girl,” courtesy Jetspeed Entertainment—and they couldn’t wait for a go at the photo booth from JPL Entertainment, who also showed off their unique hand-crafted albums and guest books, btw.

Big—no HUGE—thanks to Rob Smith, Susie Edwards, Bobbie Taylor, John Escamilla, Jeff Landry and Sandy Tran, as well as Dan Zimmerman and Hannah Kramer of the sumptuous and spectacular La Colombe d’Or, and to the talented Danny Heinlin of DW Photography for fabulous pics of the event, featured here!
