An Elegant Wedding at The Corinthian


 Dollie & Toba were such a pleasant couple to work with.  At our first consultation with Dollie she had mentioned there were two things she'd made up her mind about when she got engaged: the first was using The Corinthian in downtown Houston as her wedding reception venue while the second was securing Events by Doyin as her event planning company.  We were thrilled about the kind words and having the privilege to work with a gorgeous bride who had a lovely personality.




Dollie knew exactly what she wanted her wedding to look and feel like which made the planning process smooth for us. Since she was out of town in school throughout the duration of the planning period, she always joined in on vendor meetings by phone, video or even text messages.  It was her special day and as someone who was very visual, she wanted to be as involved in the vendor meetings as possible. She wasn't going to be left out of any of the details!



The venue for the ceremony was the magnificent Christ Church Cathedral with breathtaking windows and artifacts. Though it was selected for it's exquisiteness, it was also less than 5minutes drive from the reception venue making it easy to get to for the guests who were attending this Houston wedding from over 4 continents.  The Reverend was straight to the point while the talented soloist sang beautifully.  Their wedding ceremony was beautiful and very classy.  



Weddings at The Corinthian always turn out beautiful and this wasn't an exception.  The guests were ushered in with cocktails while they got serenaded by the lovely string quartet group, Divisi Strings. The decorator and rental company, Darryl & Co went all out to ensure the wedding was all the bride ever dreamed about.

The guests couldn't stop talking about the ambiance, the food and how the order of events went beautifully without a hitch. Thanks to Alakija Studios/ Jide Alakija for capturing this day.


From Dollie - Thank you so much for your help on our special day, it was everything I ever dreamed of.

A Royal Wedding

Here's another fun wedding we enjoyed planning.  Fatima and Jordan’s wedding was at the gorgeous Corinthian.  The venue with its high ceiling and columns, the beautiful color scheme fitted perfectly into their royal theme.  Both ceremony and reception were held at the Corinthian which made it easier on commuting for the vendors and guests.

Fatima walked down the aisle in this gorgeous three in one silver wedding dress that was made by hand.   As you can see it was a beauty to behold as you stood at the altar exchanging vows with the groom. Immediately after the ceremony, the same room had to be flipped for the reception.   It turned into a different room entirely!  The guests couldn’t believe they were just in the same room for the ceremony.

The bride and groom surprised their guests after their first dance with a Thriller performance. The guests couldn’t stop screaming. This was definitely the highlight of their spectacular wedding.  How else could you have ended a beautiful royal affair without one of the King of Pop’s greatest hits?

We had a great time working with Sonume and Obi. They knew exactly what they wanted right from our first meeting which made their wedding planning process seamless and fun.

Their beautiful wedding ceremony was held at the Ascension Episcopal Church. Church was packed full of well wishers and you could tell Sonume and Obi were so loved by everyone in attendance. Guests, including some members of the bridal party (over 24 people in this awesome bridal party!) flew in from about 6 continents to celebrate with the lovely couple. The ceremony was classy and well organized with 5 pastors officiating. The bride, who is from a family with beautiful voices, had her siblings and cousins render beautiful solos.

Immediately after the ceremony came the reception at the elegant Petroleum Club of Houston. The view of the city’s skyline from the grand ballroom was a beauty to behold. Flora and Eventi did an amazing job decorating the ballroom, giving it a magical feel. The “wows!” from guests kept coming as they stepped into the ballroom. Divisi Strings, more talented dancers and singers from the bride’s family entertained guests during dinner. The groom’s thank you speech brought cheers, laughter and a tear or two. There was a lot of eating, drinking and dancing. No one wanted the beautiful party to end!

Beverly and Tosan's Classy Chic Wedding in Houston

Wanting a modern and feminine feel to her wedding, Beverly opted for the Red Oak Ballroom, located in the Houston City Centre. They fell in love with this chic and modern venue at first sight. To blend the feminine feel into the wedding, ivory and blush pink were chosen as the wedding colors. The ivory and whites brought in the modern feel while blush gave their celebration the feminine touch.

The bride made a grand entrance, arriving at the St. Theresa’s Catholic Church in a ball gown and black Rolls Royce. She made her way majestically to the entrance as a room full of guests awaited her. With Tosan at the altar, she walked in, holding onto her father’s arm, ready to join her husband to be and say their “I Dos”. The ceremony was beautiful and tasteful. Immediately following the ceremony was their 800 guest reception.

The elegant sound of a piano filled the cocktail hour area as the guests walked into the lobby of the Red Oak Ballroom. Upon entering the reception area, you couldn’t help but to stand at the doorway and take in the beautiful look of their wedding. As guests made their way to their seats, they couldn’t help but stop and look onto the beauty of the room that stood before them. The white draping of the walls made you feel as though you were in the clouds. With most of the room having such a clean look, you couldn’t help but to stare at every pink detail because it stood out amongst all else
