Oodles and oodles of red roses, tulips and orchids cascade from every corner of this stunning celebration. And that dress, oh that dress! Could there be a more glowing, gorgeous bride? The result is one of the most romantic ballroom weddings I have ever seen! There is so much more to enchant you in the full gallery!
From Belle of the Ball…Sweet as she was beautiful, Abby Tippit met her now-husband Matthew Spinn while both were working at Memorial Hermann Hospital. The couple exchanged vows at First Presbyterian Church in Houston’s Museum District, a church holding special meaning for Abby and her family. A festive reception followed at Houston’s La Colombe D’Or, one of Houston’s premier wedding venues.
Originally the Fondren mansion, the home of the founders of Humble Oil, La Colombe D’Or’s main ballroom, the Grand Salon, was constructed of original carved wood panels brought to Houston from an eighteenth century French chateau. Here, guests enjoyed a variety of food options prepared by La Colombe D’Or chefs, and kept the dance floor full to the sounds of local Houston band, Password.
Decor was a mix of traditional and modern. Beautiful red centerpieces and champagne linens, both provided by Wedding Flowers by Lisa, adorned the tabletops in the Grand Salon, while white, black, and mirrored sofas, ottomans, and cocktail tables in the Conservatory created a more casual yet hip lounge feel. Following the hours of cocktails, delicious food, and plenty of dancing, the couple waved goodbye to their guests as they departed in a vintage Princess Rolls Royce for Houston’s Four Seasons hotel.
