Weddings to Celebrate: Robyn & Zac

There is no higher honor than a referral, and I'm so grateful that Robyn & Marcy (Robyn's mother) were referred to me.  They are two of the most thoughtful people one could ever meet, and I had a blast helping them pull everything together for Robyn & Zac's big day.  Enjoy some eye candy from the lovely Nancy Aidee...

Happy planning!!

Sneak Peak!! Ashley & Neal

I have one word for Ashley & Neal's November wedding:  DREAMY.  I had so much fun helping Ashley and her sweet mother, Wendy, plan all the details of this incredible event.  Scott Konitzer of Blooming Gallery transformed the Houstonian Grande Ballroom with lush white carpet and draping and a clean palette of white, ivory and green.  Here are a few sneak peak pictures captured by the oh-so-talented Morgan Lynn of Morgan Lynn Photography.  Enjoy, and get inspired!!

Weddings to Celebrate: Elaine & Jeff

Weddings to Celebrate: Lindsey & Matthew

If I had to describe Lindsey & Matthew in one word, it would be FUN.  I loved every minute of helping them plan their wedding, and every minute of their wedding day.  They had an intimate event with fifty of their nearest and dearest ... and every single person had a ball!  A picture is worth a thousand words.  I'll let these incredible images (captured by Agape House Studio) speak for themselves.

Weddings to Celebrate: Maria & Victor

I feel like a broken record - but referrals are always my favorite way to meet new clients.  Especially when those clients are siblings!  I had the pleasure of coordinating Minju & Victor G's wedding a couple of years ago...and was THRILLED when Maria & Victor L (Minju's brother) contacted me to coordinate theirs.  I would challenge anyone to find a more loving and kind family...I would coordinate a wedding for them any time!!! The oh-so-talented Sam Le (Sam Hugh Photography) did an incredible job capturing the feel of the day.  A picture is worth a thousand words; I'll let these speak for themselves.

Weddings to Celebrate: Lindsey & Randy

Lindsey and Randy's wedding was one for the books!  After a long and sweet courtship, they had a short three month engagement.  They came to me for help just two months out, and I was thrilled to assist.  However, the length of their engagement isn't what made their wedding so unique.  It was the number of receptions.  They were married in an intimate ceremony in Park City, Utah.  They had a small reception in Park City, and then two days later...we had reception #2 in Houston for their Texas friends and family.  But wait, there's more! (ha) The week after the Texas reception, they had  reception #3 in Los Angeles for their California friends and family.  What a whirlwind!  

They hired three planners (one in each city), and Lindsey gave me one of the best compliments of my career.  She said I was the best of the three, and she wished I had planned all of the events.  I can not properly express how much her words meant to me.  

Lindsey and Randy possess two of my favorite qualities:  They are both humble and kind.  They have great spirits, they are a join to be around, and I am forever grateful to have worked with them.  

Here are some of the gorgeous shots Chip Gillespie captured for their Texas Reception.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Weddings to Celebrate: Megan & Stephen

There are no words to properly describe how much I adore this family.  I planned Jackelyn & Zachary's wedding back in 2012 and was THRILLED when Megan (Zachary's sister) asked me to help with the planning for her wedding.  You couldn't meet a nicer group of people, and I am honored to call them friends.  They are welcoming, wonderful, open, loving and full of fun.  And Megan's wedding was all of those things times a million.  Though it was easily one of the most beautiful events I've ever planned, it was incredible because of the "vibe" in the room.  From the guests to the food to the music playing, it was a fairytale event.  I'll let the pictures tell you the rest of the story.  (If you don't know it already, Chip Gillespie is the bee's knees.)

Happy planning!!

Weddings to Celebrate: Courtney & Brandon

I met Courtney & Brandon last summer, and we "clicked" instantly.  I adore this couple, and helping them plan their wedding was a ton of fun.  After meeting their families, I knew why they were such great people.  They both come from exceptional stock!  :)  And they sure do know how to laugh and have a good time!

As always, Julie Wilhite captured the day beautifully.  Feast your eyes on these pretty pictures...

Happy Planning,

Weddings to Celebrate: Denise & Gray

I love referrals!  They are the best gift a client could ever give me.  When that referral is within the same immediate family, I am doubly delighted.  Especially when it's this family.  They are incredible!!  I was fortunate enough to coordinate Karen & Darryl's wedding back in 2013.  When Karen's parents contacted me last year to ask me to help with Denise's wedding (their oldest daughter), I was over-the-moon :)  I can't say it enough:  I adore this family!!

The forecast for Denise's and Gray's wedding (this past April) was hail on Friday and 100% severe thunderstorms on Saturday (with the heaviest scheduled for right at the ceremony time).  The bride, the groom, and both families handled this news with grace and poise.  We were all prepared for the worst, but were thrilled when the rain held off for the ceremony.  The overcast skies weren't what the bride had originally envisioned, but they ended up making for a glorious event.

Chip Gillespie was there to capture the entire thing, and I am so excited to share some of his pictures with you.  He is amazing!

Weddings to Celebrate: Kelly & Zach

I love December weddings.  There is just something about the holidays that make the wedding even more magical.  A stunning clear tent, crystal chandeliers, and a beautiful color palette made the overall effect just perfect.  Add to that an exceptional family, and a girl couldn't ask for any more.  It's only been weeks, and I already miss this family to pieces!

Feast your eyes on some of the sensational images captured by Something Gold Photography.  Aren't they lovely?

Happy Planning,
{Resha}












I love the look on Kelly's face when she looks at Zach.  She had this look all day. :)











Nothing like a little mistletoe for those Christmas-time weddings.  


I always avoid the camera, but when I am caught in a shot, it's usually pretty funny.



These expressions are priceless. 


Nothing says winter wedding reception like a hot chocolate bar.




Love this shot of mother and daughter at the end of the exit. :)

Weddings to Celebrate: Jennifer & Justen

I've said it many times before, but the highest compliment anyone could give me is a referral.  When you honor me with the privilege of planning not one, but two of your daughters' weddings … well, that goes beyond compliment.  I love this family.  And I loved helping plan another wedding for them.  A private residence, 30 of your nearest and dearest, a killer gown, yummy food and a great view - I don't think it gets any better than this.  Feast your eyes on the beautiful images captured by the always amazing Chip Gillespie.

Happy planning!
