    @Pelikila: Hi! I know you posted this almost a year ago, but I was wondering if you  happen to have any pictures of your hair and makeup? I’m thinking about using Tree Vaello as well, but most of her website is dedicated to her photoshoot work and I’d love to see some of her bridal work?

    Thank you!

    Venue – THE BELL TOWER ON 34TH — I love my venue!  This was the first venue that I visited and nothing that I saw after could match it!  Lezlie is my account manager and she has been awesome thus far. (www.thebelltoweron34th.com)

     

    Caterer – THE BELL TOWER ON 34TH — I haven’t had my tasting yet but I’ve heard awesome things about the chef.  We are going with a cajun inspired menu…yummy.

     

    Coordinator – EVENTS BY EDG — I am lucky that one of my best friends in the world is one of the “designer girls” of the Event Design Group.  (www.eventsbyedg.com)

     

    Photographer – STUDIO563 — Andy himself is driving down to shoot my wedding.  I feel so lucky!  He shot my best friend’s wedding and was such a joy.  During our initial meeting, he treated me to cupcakes. (www.studio563.com)

     

    Videographer – T2 PRODUCTIONS — A former colleague is following his passion and is an amazing videographer.  Seriously, I didn’t want a video until I saw his work. (www.t2production.com)

     

    DJ – DEF JAM BLASTER — My fiance made this decision.  I wanted Rob G from the 97.9.  We took a vote among friends and Blaster won. (www.defjamblaster.com)

     

    Florist – SIMPLY CHARMING FLOWERS — Laura was the the first florist that I met with.  She is very thorough. I love her! (www.scf.smugmug.com)

     

    Cake – SUMPREME KAKES — Okay. So I’ve had my fair share of wedding cake.  After one bite of SK’s italian creme cake, my eyes rolled back in my head and I asked for seconds.  This bakeries cakes are that good.  The baker has been baking for over 15 years but just opened her bakery a year ago.  Her recipes and designs can easily compete with some of Houston’s more well known cake vendors.  (www.supremekakes.com)

     

    Officiant – family member

     

    Dress – HANNELORE’S — I am originally from the Washington DC area.  I was in town for my engagement party and made an appointment to try on gowns.  Up until then, I hadn’t met a wedding dress that I liked for myself.  As luck would have it, I found my dress.  There are only two gowns in that particular style that are in the United States!! My stylist Kim was ahhh-mazing.  Adore her.  (www.hannelores.com)

     

    Shoes –  SAK’s —  I hope.  I really want these Jimmy Choos but they are kinda sold out in my size and color.

     

    Bridesmaid Dresses –  PEARL’S PLACE — Pearl’s is actually located outside of New Orleans.  However, they offer special “mail order” pricess that are significantly lower than the retail price.  (www.pearlsplace.com)

     

    Makeup – DEVIN HARVEY — I found Devin via Wedding Wire.  She responded to all of my emails and questions in a very timely manner.  I will be signing my contract with her this fall when she does my makeup for our engagement shoot.

     

    Invitations – HEARTCARRY PRESS — I found my invitation designer through my coordinator.  These girls are awesome!  I highly recommend them.  (www.heartcarrypress.com)

     

    Hotel Block – HOTEL SORELLA — I knew that this was the hotel for my guests the moment that I walked into this fresh modern hotel.  It is surrounded by restaurants and shops within walking distance.  Perfect for all of my OOTs.  (www.hotelsorella-citycentre.com)

    we’re still in the early early stages of planning, but we’re looking at the AF Bruce religion center at UH for the ceremony, and the Alden hotel for the reception – if anyone has info on either place, pass it along!

    • Wedding: April 2011

    I thought I’d add mine to the list, since I know how helpful other people’s reviews and notes were when I was hunting for vendors! Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about any of them – I was really happy with all of my vendors!

    Venue – the *amazing* Sycamore Heights (sycamoreheights.com). Love them! Gorgeous house, beautiful yard, sweetest proprietors ever, soooo happy I found this venue!

    Caterer – Massoud Catering (www.massoudcatering.com/. Great food, friendly service, were willing to work with my tiny budget; they also did my cousin’s all-out super-posh wedding three weeks before and the food got rave reviews then too, so they sure must know what they’re doing!

    Coordinator – Kayleigh at Lovely (lovelyevents.co/

    Photographer – Josselyn Peterson (www.josselynpeterson.com/

    Officiant – Jeff from We Do… I Dos (www.wedoidos.net/

    Bridesmaid or Best Man Dress – Etsy and Saks Off Fifth. Can’t complain, everyone was gorgeous and happy (I think)!

    Hair Stylist and Make-Up Artist – Alecia from Flawless (areyouflawless.com/

    Florist – all DIY (stock from Kroger, baby’s breath from a flower wholesaler on Fannin – would have been cheaper through Kroger, actually, had I gotten my act together and ordered them in advance!)
