WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Ashlyn and Zach ~ March 16, 2013

“When we were planning the wedding we wanted it to be something that let our personalities shine through,” says Houston bride Ashlyn. “We chose a design that was simple but still unique, and we decided to keep all of our events at Hotel Derek. This made it easy for guests, and allowed the evening to flow smoothly.” Ashlyn and groom Zach, who met as undergrads at UT Austin, treated their 130 guests to dinner and lively dancing, in a room done up for the occasion in chic shades of lime green, black and white. “We were so thankful to spend such an important day in our lives with our friends and family,” Ashlyn says. “Some of our favorite moments were the first dance, bouquet and garter toss, and dancing the night away!”

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Brittany and Ryan ~ November 23, 2013

“I’d never given much thought to the idea of ‘love at first sight’—until the moment it happened to me,” says Brittany. The bride first locked eyes with her hubby-to-be at a country-music festival in Steamboat Springs, Colo.—an instant that, she says, “felt like a movie” and changed her life. Eleven months into their long-distance relationship (he was in Austin, she in Houston), Ryan proposed aboard a gondola at Las Vegas’ Venetian Hotel. The couple’s Catholic ceremony was intimate and spiritual; their red-gold-and-black Hotel ZaZa reception was all about fun. “Since our love story began at a music festival,” Brittany says, dancing ruled the day—the highlight of a celebration “designed to include all of our guests; we wanted them to feel how much we loved them.”

Romantic White and Red Wedding at Chateau Polonez by Civic Photos

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

If you fell helplessly in love with this ridiculously gorgeous couple’s retro-chic engagement shoot by Civic Photos, just wait until you see their wedding! Houston bride Kristy and her groom Desmond wanted to give their guests a glimpse of what it would be like to attend a romantic wedding in a French chateau and, “Chateau Polonez provided the perfect ambiance,” she says. Kristy looked like a dream in a stunning fit-and-flare lace gown with a Swarovski beaded belt from Winnie Couture and show-stopping Christian Louboutin sheer, sparkling pumps. And dashing Desmond more than held his own. Looking for winter wedding inspiration?  Take a cue from Kristy and Desmond’s creamy ivory, white and deep red palette–a perfect color combo for cold-season festivities. Big thanks to fine photographers Saul Munoz and Barett Henry of Civic Photos, and our most sincere congrats to Kristy and Desmond, we wish you two the best!

Boho-Chic, Rustic Austin Mansion Wedding

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

“Our design aim was to discover the intersection between what Barr Mansion had already so beautifully curated and where we found our personality within that,” says bride Jenna of her wedding to adorable Nathan at Austin’s foodie-focused wedding venue. “We took the antique, rustic, free-spirit, artistic, creative, comfortable and natural beauty that was already there and built on that with homegrown flowers, handcrafted centerpieces, personalized paper-cut banners, unique music, DIY’d accent pieces, and a relaxing, lounge-style reception atmosphere.” Even the day’s wet weather was a welcome happenstance. “My mom mentioned that it had rained on her wedding day, and Nathan remarked how the drizzly gray weather looked exactly like where he grew up in Alaska.” We’re delighted to share with you this sweet couple’s lovely wedding, featuring coordination by Kat Creech Events and flowers by Dream Bouquet—make sure to check out more from this talented team of top Houston wedding vendors in the new issue of Weddings in Houston (“Opulence Among the Oaks,” p. 216), on newsstands now!

Weddings in Houston “Whiteout” Party at La Colombe d’Or by Civic Photos

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

We are SO fortunate to do what we love…and LOVE what we do. And none of it would be possible without our amazingly talented and dedicated clients, who just happen to be Houston’s absolute finest wedding vendors and experts. Oh–and another thing: These party people know how to PARTY. Which they proved in grand style last week when Weddings in Houston hosted our annual client appreciation party at magnificent, historic La Colombe d’Or. This year’s theme? Whiteout Night with WIH. Guests arrived attired all in cool, crisp white, and enjoyed a fabulous respite from the hot summer night. Our BIG thanks goes out to La Colombe d’Or’s Ed Bodde and Steve Zimmerman for hosting this year’s festivities and indulging our guests with fine food and drink, to Darryl Murchison and BJ of Darryl & Co. for their exceptional event decor and styling, to Susie’s Cakes & Confections for the evening’s utterly decadent desserts, and to Jonny Black Productions for awesome music and entertainment. Check out pix from our fantastic fete, shot by super-talented Barett Henry of Civic Photos. And remember, every single one of these vendors is available to bring their magic to your wedding, as as they did to our lil’ ol’ shindig.
