Soft candlelight, cascading florals, rich linens...these are just a few of the elements that went into this luxurious Houston wedding.  Held at the majestic Houstonian Hotel, this wedding was feast for the eyes.  Guests were wowed at every corner from the elaborate ceremony set up to the breathtaking reception space.  Resha Zazueta of Something to Celebrate was the mastermind that pulled all of these elements together.  And she was smart enough to tap the photographic genius of John Ly Photography to capture the stunning event.  There's even more in the gallery to love.

 From the bride...Our wedding had the unique challenge of combining the Persian and Mexican cultures into one big celebration.  We were looking for that 'wow' factor to present itself when guests walked into any part of our wedding and we feel that was well achieved from beginning to end.  We are very traditional in many ways so were looking for a wedding and feel that had tradition, class and a true sense of beauty.

We chose to do two ceremonies, both in the same room.  The first was a traditional Christian ceremony with the 'I do's' setting a smile on both our faces.  The stage was set beautifully from a simple cross and unity candle in the middle to a wall of floating glass candles and topped off with amazing flower arrangements.  Our second ceremony was a traditional Persian 'sofreh aghd'.  The setup of the sofreh consisted of various elements each with their own unique symbolic meaning.  It is tradition for the bride to play hard to get in this ceremony and is ended with our fingers dipped in honey to ensure a sweet happy life.

There were many wow factors that night but the cake and the flower arrangements left all of us speechless. Not only the size of the flower arrangements but the particular flowers used were so simple in color but so elegant in style.  The cake was surrounded by more flowers then we could count, and the taste was unbelievable.

The location of the Houstonian Hotel lent itself to a beautiful setting and made it so convenient for our guests to stay at the hotel and easily go to the ceremony and reception all in one place.  With the help of our fantastic wedding coordinator, we built the plan around the simple color scheme using grays, ivories and mint green as a subtle yet beautiful touch. 

Before the doors were opened to the reception, we made it a point to go into the ballroom ourselves in order to take in the details of it all and we were blown away by the beauty and the 'wow' factor we so wanted.  The tables were perfectly set and altered between round and square, even coordinating appropriately shaped plate chargers.  The candles and crystal coupled with flowers on every table brought a sense of romance and class.  The white dance floor was lit up with the word 'Amore' which more than described the feeling in the air that night.

Our wedding ended up being beyond anything we could have imagined and will always hold as one of the best nights of our lives.  Our vision of the 'wow' was delivered and then some.  We exited that night with a simple run through the hallway with flower pedals thrown on us and then had the honor of saying good night to each guest as they left...without them, our wedding night would not have been what it was.
