“You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” This quote from Dr. Seuss speaks volumes about how special it truly is when you find the love of your life! Furthermore, the day you finally say “I Do” to this special individual will always hold a spot as one of life’s most magical experiences! We were honored to host this special day for Alexis and Milton, a couple that was so clearly in love with each other. From the breathtaking ceremony to the fun-filled reception that followed, it truly was a memorable day from start to finish. In this week’s blog post, we’ll give you a glimpse inside what all was included as these two tied the knot at Madera Estates.
We would also like to give a special shout out to Rendi Smith Photography for capturing all of these memorable moments.
Before diving into this wedding day album, we would like to thank all of our returning and new visitors to our website. Madera Estates is a luxury Spanish and European inspired wedding venue located in Conroe, Texas. Our venue is just a short commute from the Houston area, The Woodlands, College Station, Sugarland and many other surrounding areas. We take pride in making dream weddings come to life, all while doing so in a seamless process! If you would ever like to schedule a free private tour, feel free to select a time that works best for you.
Getting Ready: Bridal Suite at Madera Estates!
We’ll get started in an area we like to call the Champagne Suite. We know the “getting-ready” portion of the festivities is perhaps as fun as any! After all, you get to relax with your besties before the day gets underway. Knowing that, our team wanted to ensure the bridal suite included everything imaginable and plenty of room! In total, it features a dining room, a dressing room and lounge area, hair and makeup room, and restrooms.
How adorable are Alexis and her bridesmaids? They were able to snap some photos outside the suite, before heading inside to get pampered for the ceremony ahead! Kudos to the awesome team from Samantha’s Artistry for getting these gals all glammed up!
Getting Ready: Whiskey Lounge at Madera Estates
As the girls continue to get ready, let’s head across the venue to the Whiskey Lounge, where Milton and the guys are getting spruced up!
Much like the Bridal Suite, a major determining factor in designing the Whiskey Lounge was ensuring our groom and his groomsmen had plenty of space to get ready! After all, you need to leave enough room for the photography crew to capture each and every moment!
All in all, the grooms’ suite features a little bit of everything, including a big screen TV, Xbox, foosball table and a private bathroom! With the Whiskey Lounge being so close to the Champagne Suite, you don’t have to worry about photographers driving back and forth, and potentially missing key moments! Trust us, it’ll save both you and your photographer some unneeded stress!
There was still a little water sitting, but that didn’t stop the guys from getting some adorable, candid shots in front of the Grand Fireplace.
Wedding Ceremony in Conroe, TX
And now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for: the ceremony! As Alexis is walked down the aisle, smiles filled the entire room! This includes Milton, who is seeing his future spouse for the first time with her wedding gown on! What a moment!
For those new to our venue, we offer both indoor and outdoor weddings. With this flexibility, you don’t have to worry about the weather throwing any curveballs in your wedding day plans. For Alexis and Milton’s celebration, this worked out perfectly as a recent rainfall would have certainly affected an outdoor ceremony!
The couple exchanged vows and before you know it, they are now officially Mr and Mrs! Let the party begin!
Family Formal Photos!
While the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour, the bridal party and the families were able to capture some photos inside the Hacienda. Ever heard the popular quote, “One picture is worth a thousand words.” Well, if we had to provide a description of these photos, it would simply read, “Pure Joy and Happiness!”
Wedding Reception at Madera Estates!
Our next stop reminiscing on this fun-filled celebration is the reception! From the beautiful floral designs and sheer details to the candle-lit tables, this backdrop was truly looking like something straight out of a movie! And who doesn’t love a good Taco Bar?! Props to Chuy’s for catering all of the delicious food!
As the bridal party filed into the ballroom, it was instantly clear this was going to be quite the party! Everyone was smiling from ear to ear, and next to enter were the newlyweds! They enjoyed a dance together and a moment they’ll never forget.
While enjoying that delicious taco bar, guests listened to toasts! It’s safe to say plenty of laughs were had, as well as a few tears shed!
Soon after, the newlyweds captured some adorable photos in front of this beautiful wedding cake! Wonderful work by Vernele’s Bayou Bakery on taking care of this portion of the celebration!
With all of the formalities complete, it was now time for everyone in attendance to celebrate this momentous occasion. There’s no denying the fact that DJU Entertainment had the party poppin! They’ve been tasked with handling the entertainment portion of numerous weddings here at Madera Estates. With that being said, one thing is for certain: They never disappoint!
And of course, you can’t ignore the fun pics snapped from the photo booth!
The reception was so much fun that we had trouble limiting it to just a handful of photos! Here’s just a few of our favorites! What a celebration of love!
Closing out the day, the newlyweds were able to enjoy an intimate dance in an empty ballroom as the special day neared its end.
And before we call it a day, you can never go wrong with a sparkler send-off! The best day ever has finally come to an end. Alexis and Milton soaked in all of these closing moments and had one of the most amazing photo moments we’ve seen captured below! How’s that for a steamy send-off?!
We would like to give special thanks to the newlyweds, Alexis and Milton, for allowing our team to be a part of this monumental day. We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness! Cheers to happily ever after! In addition, we would also like to show appreciation towards all of the amazing vendors that helped make this day possible.
