Navy and Ivory Briscoe Manor Wedding by Lindsay Elizabeth Photography

What is it about dimpled beauties and fitness-related meet-cutes?? Even though Scott admits he “hated the challenges of a spin class” (um, yeah, been there), he figured strained muscles and spent lung capacity was worth it if it meant winning a “million-dollar smile” from the girl of his dreams—spin/cycling instructor Sarah. After forming a friendship and—our favorite part—falling in love, the two got engaged, in the spin studio where they first met (natch). “Briscoe Manor offered a distinctive, chic and truly Texas wedding venue with its limestone architecture and country setting among the pecan and oak trees,” Sarah tells us—the perfect spot to introduce Canadian-born Scott’s family to her native state. Her most memorable moments? “Getting to see Scott for the first time before the ceremony and spending special moments with my soon-to-be husband, and looking around at a room full of friends and family that we love so dearly. I especially enjoyed getting to introduce all of the Canadian guests to a true Texas-themed wedding!” And WE especially enjoy getting to introduce Sarah and Scott to YOU—with help from Lindsay Elizabeth’s ever lovely photos, of course!

Moroccan Theme Sangeet and Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa Wedding with Moroccan, Vintage and Rustic-Chic Themes

On the 5th anniversary of the beginning of their courtship, Ronak took Zena to Sonoma, Calif., to celebrate—and, unbeknownst to her—to propose. “During our visit to Pride Vineyard, he had a picnic set up with my favorite foods and during the picnic gave me a scrapbook documenting our five years together. The final page said ‘Happily Ever After?’ Once I got to that page, he got down on one knee and proposed. We spent the rest of the weekend at a wonderful resort in Napa Valley celebrating.” The celebrating continued at the couple’s multi-day Indian wedding, which kicked off with a mehndi party, followed by a Moroccan-theme sangeet at the St. Regis Hotel, and, finally a vintage-theme ceremony with a moss-covered, floral-draped altar, and lushly floral rustic-chic reception, both at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. Bride Zena’s favorite moment? “Walking down the aisle with my dad and seeing how nervous he was.” Happiest wishes to the lovely couple, and big thanks to Brooklyn, N.Y.-based J’Adore Love Photography for sharing beautiful images of this spectacular celebration.

Houstonian Hotel Wedding With Four-Legged Best Man by Adam Nyholt Photographer

While “the dog did it” is a legendarily convenient excuse for all kinds of stuff, in the case of Andrew’s proposal to Lauren…the dog really did! “Andrew had a tag made that on one side said, ‘I love you,’ and on the other, ‘Will you marry me?’ He hung the tag and the ring on our dog Niko’s collar. I noticed it immediately and though it was some sort of joke. It was perfect! And thankfully it was not a joke,” the bride recounts. For the couple’s 150-guest wedding at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa, Lauren opted for white with silver accents as her palette, “which I think is very simple yet extremely sophisticated and elegant,” she says. “It was very important to us that everyone there was a person that touched our lives in some way. That included having our dog there as the best man. The whole night was absolutely amazing. Andrew and I never left the dance floor!” We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness, and send a shout-out to super-talented photographer Adam Nyholt for the beautiful images.

White and Ivory Ballroom Wedding by 1Cinema Productions

To transform a hotel ballroom into a “heavenly setting,” bride Dara opted for lush, romantic draping throughout the room. And we are in love with the result. We also adore how the reception’s billowy, beautiful surroundings get a lovely, contemporary contrast from sleek, asymmetrical centerpieces of white calla lilies, orchids, hydrangea and ranunculus, on alternating round and square tables, courtesy Decor One. But mostly we love the love on Dara and Ammar’s faces in their wedding photos from 1Cinema Productions. So much excitement, so much joy, so much FUN. We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness—congratulations!

Classic Pink & White Country Club Wedding with Art Deco Inspiration

Since her grandparents wed, everyone in Claudia’s family has married at her family’s church—St. Anne Catholic Church—and celebrated their nuptials at River Oaks Country Club. And when it came time for Claudia to be joined in blessed union with her beloved Erik, the bride carried on the tradition in gracious and gorgeous style, with help from planner Jo Ann Schwartz Woodward of Schwartz & Woodward. Carrying a bouquet accented with a green crystal rosary that had been blessed by Pope John Paul II—a gift from the groom—as well as an heirloom Art Deco brooch and an antique monogrammed handkerchief, Claudia said, “I do,” to Erik, and he to his bride, in the presence of more than 400 family members and friends. A mix of light-pink damask and sheer-satin-stripe soft-white tablecloths from Elegant Beginnings set a romantic, feminine tone for the reception, with its elegant, Art Deco decor scheme. Claudia’s Chanel-inspired Who Made The Cake cake, featuring a pale-pink bow, pearl accents and an Art Deco brooch? Perhaps one of our favorites, ever! We are so happy for this lovely, loving Houston couple, and so thankful to photographer Tomas Ramos for his wonderful photos of this opulent, elegant wedding.
