Catherine & Paten Real Wedding

“True love stories never have endings.” – Richard Bach. It’s safe to say that witnessing couples say “I Do” is something that never gets old! This week on the blog, we’ll be highlighting another magical wedding that we were pleased to host here at Madera Estates. From the picture-perfect outdoor ceremony to the candlelit indoor reception that included an awesome crawfish boil-themed cake, we think you’re going to absolutely love every single moment of this wedding day.

Before we get into this fun-filled wedding though, I would like to welcome any new visitors to our blog. As a luxury event space based out of Conroe, TX, we’ve been honored to have had the opportunity to help hundreds of couples tie the knot on their wedding day. From our Grand Fireplace and Hacienda to the Champagne Suite and more, we truly do take pride in helping transform dream weddings into a reality.

Take a Peek Inside the Champagne Suite!

Catherine & Paten Real WeddingOne thing that many of our couples love about Madera is the two available suites on-site to get ready for the day ahead. Pictured here is Catherine and her favorite gals getting glammed up in the Champagne Suite. If you’ve never been inside our bridal suite before, it includes a little bit of everything for the bride-to-be and her bridesmaids. A dressing room, hair and makeup room, dining room, restrooms, mimosa bar, you name it!

Before we head over and check on the guys getting ready, shout-out to the talented team at Kiss and Makeup Houston for doing a terrific job getting the girls all ready to go!

To sum it up, this area is not only a great hangout space where the men can relax, it also serves as the perfect spot for photo ops! Ama by Aisha had no problem snapping a few great ones of the fellas!

That Special “First Look!”

Catherine & Paten Real WeddingThoughts on having a “First Look” at your wedding? While some couples prefer to take the traditional approach of first seeing their spouse-to-be on the walk down the aisle, it’s tough to argue against how special the first look can be! In fact, it’s becoming more and more popular amongst our couples. The day will certainly get busy once the ceremony is underway, so this is a great way to have an intimate moment with your future spouse!
