We still have some Friday nights and Saturday afternoons available this year, so we are opening up those dates for our Queen Mary package.  Click the link to view our very affordable, yet very inclusive, package.  If you’re thinking about booking a wedding to take place between now and December 31st, 2014, email us for availability.

The garden is in full bloom right now, so call or email to schedule an appointment to tour today!

I Spy

The first wedding I went to was when I was 16 years old.  I didn’t really know anyone there (besides my parents), and even though it was beautiful, I was kind of bored.  The game this Saturday afternoon’s wedding put out for guests would have been the perfect antidote to my boredom: I spy.  Check out the sweet cards passed out that would keep any youngster (or person of any age, really!) both occupied and engaged.

 


Crown of Flowers

What exudes more romance than flowers in a woman’s hair?  Spring weather and the blooming gardens are making me see flowers everywhere- including brides’ hair on Pinterest.  Check out this inspiration, then collaborate with your florist and hair stylist for your own perfect floral coif.

Halleluja

This very incredible video of a priest singing during a couple’s wedding mass has recently gone viral.  I have a feeling someone’s going to be requested for weddings for many years to come!

 




Amazing Ring Race 3

Are you and your honey not officially engaged yet because you’re waiting on a ring?  Your chance to win one may have just arrived!  Thomas Markle is sponsoring this year’s Amazing Ring Race 3 in The Woodlands, and I would hustle to register!  Playing is completely free, and a $17,000 Hearts on Fire engagement ring is the prize for one lucky couple!  Click here for more details, and let us know if you win!

The Amazing Ring Race 3 is Saturday, April 26th, so only a few weeks away!  Good luck!

 

 

 

Golden Hour

Remember last week, when I posted some of our early blooms in the garden?  Those pictures now look a little bit silly.  I just needed one more week and a professional photographer (you know, not me on my cell phone) to really capture the loveliness of Spring at Heather’s Glen right now!  Thanks to Dave DiLauro for passing these along- check out his website here for his wedding packages.

Springtime Early Blooms

It had been a long winter for Houston, but we’re finally seeing some blooms in the garden.  And according to the calendar, it IS Spring, after all.  We had our first garden wedding in I don’t know how long this past Saturday night.  The bride and groom married under our gazebo, and for their unity, rather than a typical sand ceremony in the vase, they poured sand into a clear glass lamp.  Special and functional!  Here are some snaps of our blooms today.

Anyone else’s azaleas making a late appearance this year?

More Than a Crush

Heather’s Glen is thrilled to be on the cover of this season’s Woodlands Bride magazine.  We worked with some wonderful vendors (major shoutout to  Kasey Lynn Photography) to showcase our beautiful garden shoot, themed “More Than a Crush.”  If you haven’t picked up your hard copy yet, you can view the full shoot here on Woodlands Bride.

“One Day More” Flash Mob

The bride and groom enjoyed a special surprise gift from the bride’s father last Saturday evening:  a flash mob, performed by a talented high school group.  Check out the video below.

 

Congratulations, Rachael and Anthony!

Wedding Cake Christmas Ornaments

I came across a website where you send in a couple photos of your wedding cake, and they create a replica of it as a Christmas ornament! I actually think it’s a really cute idea, and could make a great gift for a couple’s first Christmas.  The company is called Aberrant Ornaments, and they quote the price as anywhere between $100-$200 dollars.  Click the link to view more photos and their FAQ page.
