This next wedding has sophistication written all over it! This chic downtown Houston wedding is so full of glamorous details I don't know where to begin. Let's start with the fashion! The bride's long-sleeved, plunging neckline wedding dress is a one of a kind! Her stunning accessories (hello Jimmy Choo!) and flawless hair and makeup complete the look perfectly. The "wow" factor doesn't end with the fashion. The bold and bright purple and pink florals draping the ballroom at the Magnolia Hotel are seriously jaw-dropping. Darryl & Co. did an amazing job transforming the space into flower lover's dream. And we can't leave out the fun had at this rocking reception. From the emcee to the second line band, the guests were on their feet all night. Dive into the gallery for even more chic images from Milanes Photography.

From XOXO Weddings + Events...We definitely wanted to keep it intimate. We wanted to create an experience from the beginning of the day to the end. From the string quartet to the 2nd line band, we wanted guests to be in the moment and experience our journey with our introduction being in New Orleans.

The ceremony was emotional yet funny as the pastor kept it sacred yet light. He lovingly made a joke here and there as he reiterated the joining of two families and the importance of communication.

Cocktail hour followed at Magnolia Hotel where guests enjoyed a variety of passed appetizers and specially designed signature cocktails. 

The reception embodied shades of pink, purple, ivory and gold. As huge fans of color, we wanted to make sure that the reception popped. Every detail was selected to make sure a cohesive look was achieved but not one that had been overdone. 

Overall the day was AMAZING. I got to marry my best friend while surrounded by family and close friends. I would not change a thing.
