Michelle & Renzo ~ November 9, 2013

“Who wants to go on a blind date, right? No one! What are the odds that a blind date will lead to a happy ending? Never!” says Michelle—who proved herself wrong, in the best way, by marrying Renzo, with whom she was set up by a mutual friend. The bride, who happens to be the owner of beloved West University gift-and-housewares boutique Blue Leaf, has a natural flair for gracious design, which her 300-guest wedding showed off beautifully. As celebratory as it was spectacular, Michelle and Renzo’s wedding also featured swings hung from the ceiling, confetti cannons, a cigar roller and an after-party, complete with disco-ball drop. WOW!! Congratulations to the happy couple, wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Anita & Johnny ~ March 22, 2014

Sometimes a pickup line is more than a pickup line—sometimes it’s the beginning of forever. At a sports bar where each of them happened to be celebrating with friends, Anita stole a glance at Johnny, who worked up the nerve to approach her. “The bartender told me you ordered a real man,” he grinned at her. “The fun and laughter hasn’t stopped since,” Anita says. Four years later, Johnny surprised Anita with a December Disneyland proposal, complete with fireworks and faux snow; 15 months after that, the pair wed in sensational style at the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice, surrounded by vibrant jewel tones, candlelight, brilliant crystal sparkle, and 150 of their most beloved friends and family members. Which we love. But what we love even more about this spectacular Houston wedding is that groom Johnny was the one who shared it with us—and in doing so, shared, with us, and all of you, his love story with the love of his life, Anita. Which we really, really, really love.

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 Hotel ZaZa Spring Wedding by Akil Bennett Photography

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

“We met at a charity camp for children with cancer called Candlelighter’s, back in El Paso,” recounts recent bride Paige. “Patrick was the counselor for the youngest boys and I was the counselor for the youngest girls. Patrick had a ‘tough guy’ exterior, but seeing him with those children, gentle and kind, melted my heart and I was immediately in love. By the end of the camp we were constantly talking and flirting, sharing music and books; it was a beautiful beginning to a beautiful relationship.” We’ll second that, Paige. And third it. And just melt over it right along with you, while we sigh over Akil Bennett’s gorgeous photos of your Hotel ZaZa spring wedding. Thank you so much for donating your time and love to children in need, and for sharing your beautiful day with our beautiful Houston brides. Congratulations!
