Outdoor Ballroom Wedding Walkthrough with Alyssa Meeks Events

From the planner: “When planning Nicole and Aaron’s wedding weekend, location was a priority. They wanted a place where their family and friends could enjoy the weekend. They chose The Clubs at Houston Oaks so they could not only host their wedding, but their rehearsal dinner as well. The bride wanted a classic wedding with a modern touch, while the rehearsal dinner had a more masculine feel.”

“The bride made her memorable walk with her dad down the floral-lined aisle leading to a stunning archway draped in lush white florals.”

“To tie in the groom’s love of hunting, the families horns from their personal collection were added to each centerpiece.”

“The couple wanted the party to begin the moment their guests stepped foot on property. Guests were treated to champagne underneath 100 year old oak trees before the ceremony.”

“As favors, we had a local honey company fill jars for each person to take home at the end of the evening. We tried to incorporate farm to table as much as possible.”

“The bride wanted to drape the ceiling to add a softer touch with the oak trees surrounding all the guests. It was a classic ballroom outdoors!”

From the bride: “Alyssa Meeks — what an amazing wedding planner! She helped ensure everything was seamless during the entire planning process. She made the most difficult situations easier for me. She saw my vision come together before I even knew I had a real vision.”
