Just one look at these glamorous Houston nuptials by J. Cogliandro Photography and, I swear, I have never loved another more. With all of the amazing details crafted by Keely Thorne Events and gorgeous florals by Bergner & Johnson Design, I am in wedding heaven. Not to mention that the stunning bride (who also happens to be the invitation designer behind Atheneum Creative) is seriously rocking one of my favorite gowns… EVER. Yes, I do believe I adore this wedding. Join me for even more to love in the gallery!
From the Bride…Keely Thorne Events guided us through the entire planning process. It was so much fun with her direction. She took us to several different venues, but our hearts were immediately set on the beautiful Corinthian. We wanted a very traditional, elegant wedding, but it had to be not stuffy and plenty of fun! Keely accomplished our goals and we were so thrilled with the results.
As a partner at Atheneum Creative (stationery boutique) it was without question that I would design the print materials for our wedding. The design was inspired by the texture and ornate details of the architecture inside the Corinthian. Each piece in the set was uniquely designed using only black ink and texture. The beauty of this design was all in the details, simple and elegant.
We married at the same church where Blake’s grandparents had married 50 years earlier. His mom had given us a picture of her parents just as they were leaving the ceremony through the beautiful doors of the church that are still there! We wanted the exact same picture, so our photographer, Joe Cogliandro, was able to accomplish just that! The reception was perfectly orchestrated to begin with a low-keyed cocktail hour, then slowly rise to the peak of the evening where everyone was on the dance floor. The night started to wind down with the presentation of bite-sized grilled cheese sandwiches and french fries, gourmet style! What a fabulous evening! The entire evening was so special, so magical, and very meaningful to us and our families. All of our closest friends and family members were there.
