An Elegant Garden Wedding

Ale and Jose wedding was nothing short of a dream. We were honored when the families asked for us to plan and design this beautiful wedding at the Grooms Family’s Private Residence in Houston. The only thing was that we had three months! The evening we met with both families we were immediately intrigued by their overwhelming hospitality and enthusiasm for a FUN wedding! Ale coming from a Chilean and Nicaraguan background and Jose from a Spanish and Mexican background we didn’t have to worry to much on making sure it was going to be fun just that is was going to be everything they wanted and more. We were fast to our feet and during the process got to know and love their families.

We quickly began planning this elegant outside affair. Ale’s personality and quick wit entertained both us and our vendors at meetings. Her vision and taste was impeccable her love for Venetian glass with mixed metals was carried though in our design as well as her attraction to linen and orchids. Jose was working in San Pao Brazil and would check in with us on Skype, he was a familiar soul. Both coming from large families they decided to only have sisters and brothers as party of their wedding party. Ale selected an emerald green for their beautiful custom dresses, while she wore a beautiful gown from Casa De Novia.

 

Guest were greeted by a doorway dripping in floral designed by the ever so great Scott Konitzer, with Blooming Gallery, as Mariachi’s sang the traditional Mexican Ballads. As guest entered through the residence they were greeted with candles, running fountains and the bride and grooms favorite appetizers and cocktails for Cordua Catering.  A beautiful cheese table was set up and paired with an jamon serrano, that was carved for the guest.

The tent was nothing short of intoxicating beauty set for 600 guest.

Jessie Lopez, Edible Designs, never ceases to impress us.  She is so incredibly talented and careful with her work that you can’t but help walk away in aw.

Guest Danced into the morning with latin rhythms from Grupo Kache and moderns rhythms from the DJ brought in from Mexico City.

“La Torna Boda” included bites from Tacos Julio and A Mexican Beer Bar with signs and napkins by Katie and Co.

Here is a sneak peak from behind the scenes:  Our setup began 10 days prior to the wedding. The tent by Aztec Tents and Events and white carpet was 16,000 square feet and encompassed over 26,000 feet of Silver Satin for the ceiling. Here are a few pictures of our setup.
