This next styled shoot is 1920s inspired perfection. Sasha from Sasha Boheme Photography sent over these stunning images and I could not wait to feature them on the blog. Shot at the Houston restaurant Tiny Boxwoods, Sasha served up major inspiration for all the brides out there.
Oh my, where to begin-the dress, the flowers, the model giving serious face! The hair, make-up and accessories set a 1920s glamour backdrop. Yet, the wild flowers and lace dress provide a contrasting bohemian vibe.
Rachel of Artful Designs by Rachel Nieman provided the amazing calligraphy for this shoot. If it is in your budget, adding calligraphy to your wedding stationary can bring your designs to another level.

Oooh weee do we have a wedding to share with you today! Held at the majestic Houstonian Hotel and captured by husband and wife photography team, Caroline + Ben, this bride, inspired by the design of her dress, designed an art deco wedding for the history books. While the art deco theme is executed beautifully, it’s the fashion in this wedding that really steals the show. So let’s dive into this wedding chicness!
Oh, Jimmy Choo, how do I love thee! Let me count the ways. These strappy sandals are everything and they fit in so wonderfully with the bride’s art deco theme.
I adore both of these preparation shots–the bride’s contained expectation and the groomsmen’s exuberant expressions just give you a sense that the day is going to be wonderful. Take note brides and grooms–never underestimate the value of preparation shots.
I think this qualifies as the most adorable first look I’ve ever encountered here on 7 Centerpieces. Those white balloons…what an ingenious idea!
Again, the fashion involved in this wedding cannot be undersold. The bridesmaids one-shoulder cobalt blue dresses are to die for!
This is the image all couples hope to achieve on their wedding day. Great job Caroline + Ben!
I think it is a wonderful idea to have all of the stationary create a consistent theme. From the invitations to the menu cards, everything was connected through the same fonts, colors, and images.
Just when I thought this bride couldn’t slay me anymore with her fashion, she emerged in a reception dress that is the perfect compliment to her wedding dress and her art deco theme–right down to the scalloped detail woven throughout the entire wedding.
From the Bride…When I started planning my wedding, I wasn’t inspired by any particular look or theme. It wasn’t until I found my dress. My wedding dress, designed by Rivini, style Yasmine, has a scalloped hand beading design that reminded me of the Art Deco period. That period featured decadence and glamour so I chose gold, black and ivory for our colors.
We chose to have our ceremony and reception at The Houstonian Hotel and Resort on Memorial Day weekend, the same weekend we met 4 years prior. I was living in NYC at the time while Kurt moved there 6 months prior from DC. It made the perfect backdrop for our courtship and eventually, our happily ever after.
Our main goal for our wedding was to unite our families, especially since we come from completely different backgrounds. I am the first generation Laotian American and my husband grew up in the midwest with an Italian heritage. During our ceremony, Buddhist monks blessed our marriage along with our wedding officiant, Ron Ramey. Then at our reception, our first dance included the traditional Lao finger dance. A parting gift for our guests included Italian Baci candies. My husband’s Papa (grandfather) used to give the grandchildren baci candies. It means kisses in Italian and each candy is wrapped with a love letter in 5 different languages. Looking back on all the photos and video highlight, I can truly say that we achieved our goal of uniting our families, friends and our marriage. We are so grateful!
Boy do we have a beautifully designed wedding to start off your day. Kimberly Chau sent over images from this Magnolia Hotel Houston wedding and it is filled to the brim with chic sophistication. The contemporary venue provided the perfect backdrop to this purple-infused affair.
It’s an all day “yes” to these Badgley Mischka shoes! They are the perfect compliment to this chic affair. And let’s not forget about that beautiful sparkler. Whoever said “diamonds are a girl’s best friend” knew exactly what they were talking about!
How adorable is this first look in the library of the hotel. Plus, the groom’s reaction is priceless.
Looking to incorporate shades of pink and gold into your wedding? Then this Hotel Galvez wedding will not disappoint. With a romantic outdoor ceremony and ballroom reception this couple had the best of both worlds for their wedding venues. And Civic Photos was there to capture all of the gorgeousness.
With the ocean and palm trees as your backdrop, finding the perfect spot for couple shots is never a problem at Hotel Galvez.
Plants as wedding favors are such great gifts. Your guests will be able to remember your special day for as long as the plant lives.
Guestbooks like this plaque are the best! Your guests will enjoy signing them and you will have a keepsake from your wedding to display.

Bridal luncheons can be so much fun for a bride-to-be. Not only are they a time to get together with your loved ones prior to your special day, they offer another reason to throw a beautifully-styled party. Holly Hoyt gifted us with these stunning images from a Parisian styled bridal luncheon designed by Party Architects and Tamara Menges Designs. These ladies put together one of the most stunning styled shoots we’ve ever featured here on 7 Centerpieces.
When I saw this photograph, I literally gasped! The beauty of Chateau Cocomar is comparable to that of a Parisian mansion. Those windows are majestic and that ceiling is stunning. With a venue with this much natural beauty, any celebration held here is bound to “wow” your guests.
This tablescape makes my heart swell! Anyone who knows me knows my favorite design element of any wedding celebration is the tablescape. I love seeing how all of the individual elements come together to make one bold statement. Tamara Menges did not disappoint with this one! The glass chargers, the antique china, the napkins with the pearl broaches…it is just tablescape perfection!
How adorable is this luncheon menu! It’s such an innovative idea to print the luncheon menu on the guest favor card box.
Whew! I think I need to take a moment to take all of that beauty in. If you haven’t had your fill for today, be sure to check out Holly’s blog and Tamara’s blog for even more gorgeousness.
