Blush, Orange, Silver & Gold Wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Houston by DC Stanley Photography

Jane met Andrew during his first week of training in her department at Four Seasons Dallas.  Little did she know that after being transferred to Four Seasons Whistler they would still keep in touch. A year later after traveling back and forth to visit their mutual friends, they had their first date and the rest was history. Jane and Andrew decided that it was only appropriate, as former Four Seasons employees, to celebrate their wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Houston.  “We wanted a simple yet polished design. We decorated the ballroom with soft pink, silver, gold and pops of orange to blend in with the chandeliers,” says Jane. After the reception, guests met at the pool to continue celebrating with drinks, late-night snacks, adult snow cones and a DJ from LG Entertainment that kept everyone dancing until 2 a.m. Sounds like quite the party, huh? Just wait ‘til you see the photos by DC Stanley Photography. Congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Elegant Blush, White and Green Garden Theme Wedding

Kelli & A.J. ~ May 17, 2014

Having begun their courtship at the University of Georgia, it’s no surprise that Kelli and A.J. wanted their wedding to “feel like an elegant garden party at a Southern home.” As the bride describes, “The ambiance began with a drive up scenic River Oaks Blvd. with Houston’s most beautiful homes,” and continued with a gracious country-club setting, decorated with soft-pink peonies, mercury-glass votives, twinkle-lights and French armchairs. A reception menu filled with Southern favorites—fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, pulled-pork sliders—nourished guests for a night of dancing to live music. As the night progressed, guests enjoyed hand-rolled Cuban cigars on the starlit patio, and late-night chicken-and-waffle bites. Jo Ann Schwartz Woodward (of wedding consulting firm Schwartz & Woodward) was great at listening to our vision and implementing it flawlessly,” Kelli says. “It was truly the wedding of our dreams!”

Ivory, Gray and Gold Wedding at The Petroleum Club of Houston by D. Jones Photography

Barbara & Billy ~ August 30, 2014

A college meet-cute. A wintry Central Park down-on-one-knee-in-the-snow proposal. A magnificent 225-guest wedding so celebratory that attendees couldn’t wait to start dancing and took to the floor during dinner! Could Barbara and Billy’s nuptial story be any more romantic? The pair’s Petroleum Club wedding had all the makings of an unforgettable evening, from the ivory, gray and gold palette, to the shrimp-cocktail-and-filet-mignon dinner, to the spectacular “statement” cake from famed baker Nadine Moon. Yet it was the feeling of being surrounded by family and friends, and “hosted by the most wonderful parents anyone could have,” that the bride says will forever be her greatest memory of her most special day.

Sweet Summer Peach and Blue Wedding

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Lara & Nick ~ July 12, 2014

We like to think of Lara and Nick’s meeting as a bright silver lining on a very dark cloud: The couple first encountered one another in July 2011 in Fort Payne, Ala., where both were volunteers assisting in tornado relief efforts. Their long-distance relationship—he was in North Carolina, she lived in Houston—blossomed, and in 2012, Nick moved to Houston. With its cornflower-and-peach color scheme and steak-and-lobster menu, the pair’s summer wedding was true Houston classic. The gracious bride adds, “It was also Nick’s brother-in-law’s (he was Nick’s best man) birthday, so after his speech we gave him a cheesecake and sang him, ‘Happy Birthday.’ It was pretty cool to see all 150 people join in and celebrate.”
