rice university wedding

The images speak for themselves, the couple wanted an easy, clean, yet thoughtful wedding. The details came together to create such a unique timeless event. With concrete vessels and acrylic table numbers the clean lines fit so perfectly in their venue.

Did you know Rive University has an event and wedding venue with their very own chapel? You guys have to check it out! It is one of the event industry’s hidden gems and one of my all time favorite spots. As Rice University as your backdrop you can’t go wrong.

The chapel holds less than 100 people and creates a super intimate vibe that allows the couple to fully focus on themselves and the importance of the day. Roughly a block away guests can proceed to the reception with no fuss. The Cohen house is just a skip and a jump away and invites guests in with a gorgeous view of their gardens.

With large windows and room for roughly 200 the space is perfect for the low key couple. Enough room for a small dance floor and lighting that comes through those windows that people travel all around the world to find, this venue is a hidden gem that we love.

We were so excited when this bride wanted to explore a punch of yellow in her color palette as it is not a frequently requested color palette. But we LOVE it! Soft blushes with a buttery yellow create such a gorgeous garden style that we are very well known for. We hope you love this wedding as much as we did.

While many people might sell you on a simple bouquet. Splurge, this is the only time you will ever cary your dream bouquet. I can promise that it will be completely, totally, worth it!!!

I have heard designers mention that they don’t focus on the bouquet because you only cary it for several minutes down the aisle. Sure, they are correct. But what about the images that get captured that last a life time. Who doesn’t want these dreamy, artistic images of their girls and their new hubby.

There is so much artistic talent goes into creating one of these beauties, ok I am tooting my own horn. But seriously, we were not able to make this year one, two or three of learning design. It is not easy and therefor should have a moment in the spot light.

And for the record, we have had some stunning bridal bouquets that are 1/2 this size. Size does not matter in the bouquet world. Quality flowers, shape and design is where the magic happens. Make sure to allow a healthy budget for those specialty blooms. Our favorites? Garden roses, peonies, spray roses, lisianthus, and ranunculus to name a few.

And let us not forget, the photographer. It is important ya’ll!! These images you see were perfectly captured by Josh & Dana Fernandez. And shall we not forget, the hard work of Mallory at Two Be Wed.

Is it just me, or can we agree that these images would not look the same without these flowers! I might be biased, so you decide…
