Classic style wedding at Hotel ZaZa in Houston's Museum District featuring white and purple color scheme as the perfect backdrop.  Nicole looked stunning in her wedding gown as she approached her groom, Ryan, for their first look before the wedding.  These two love birds had an intimate, elegant affair that took everyone's breath away.  Taylor Lord Photography captured the entire wedding so that Nicole and Ryan would have memories to last a lifetime, while the floral displayed was created by the creative team at Always Floral, a local florist in Spring, Texas.  Ellanesque Wedding and Event Planning coordinated this event and handled some of the wedding planning as well leading up to this wedding in Houston.  

After reciting their vows, Nicole and Ryan took many romantic pictures out near the grand piano inside the fabulous Hotel ZaZa, while the wedding guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and a purple greyhound signature cocktail during cocktail hour where a photo slideshow was displayed while the guests mingled and prepared for the bride and groom's arrival.  After taking pictures, Nicole and Ryan made their grand entrance as husband and wife to the reception being held in the Ransom Ballroom at Hotel ZaZa in Houston.  It was here that they had their first dance as a married couple and where Taylor captured a beautiful black and white shot of them dancing under the famous crystal chandelier.  

Then, Nicole's sorority surprised the bride and groom with their sorority song and dance, which opened the dance floor for an unforgettable evening of dinner and dancing.  The dance floor was packed throughout the night as the DJ spun the tunes to keep the party hopping.  The bride was excited to throw her bouquet towards the end of the night, and the groom had no trouble retrieving the garter from his new bride's leg!  After the traditional wedding events were complete and as the evening came to a close, the guests formed two lines leading to the elevator and sent the bride and groom off with applause for an elevator exit.

All in all, it was a beautiful, elegant wedding at one of Houston's finest hotels.  Nicole and Ryan will remember this day as one filled with romance and love, both from each other and from their loved ones who helped make the wedding truly special for everyone involved.
