It was a gorgeous wedding filled with so much love, joy, and flowers of course! Thank you to Kelsie EmM Photography for capturing this beautiful day!

Every girl loves to get pampered, right?! Your wedding day is no different! Lauren had fun getting glammed up with her besties and Etoilly Artistry. Our brides love utilizing our Champagne Bridal Suite. The room is massive and can comfortably accommodate a bride, her maids, and her hair and makeup team.

Welcome to the Hacienda Ballroom at Madera Estates! As Andrew and Lauren finish getting dressed for the day, the team at Madera Estates is making finishing touches to the reception hall. As you can see, the floral design was absolutely stunning thanks to Floral Concepts by Cynthia.
Who says you need a wedding cake? Lauren & Andrew opted to have a dessert bar instead! There were tons of pastries to choose from thanks to El Bolillo Bakery. What a great way to accommodate all of your guests.
Andrew and his best buddies had a great time socializing in the Whiskey Lounge. This rustic-style room is perfect for the guys to hang out and unwind before the eventful day ahead.
With hair and makeup completed, Lauren and her bridesmaids can enjoy a toast! How cute are those matching robes?!
Letter exchanges are always a great idea. Sometimes wedding days fly by so quickly that it’s difficult to express how much you care for your spouse. A letter exchange is a great way to communicate your feelings before the celebration begins!
Andrew and his groomsmen looked so handsome in their navy suits, brown shoes, and burgundy ties!
While the girls finish getting ready, the guys head out to the grounds of Madera Estates to snap a few photos. It’s great to have a variety of scenery for your photographer to choose from all at one place!
Lauren slipped on her long-sleeved lace gown. It was exquisite and absolutely perfect for a winter wedding. As you can see, her bridesmaids thought so too! The bridesmaids dazzled in velvet burgundy gowns.
The Reception: Winter Wedding Near Houston
At last, the ceremony is about to begin! Guests enter the foyer at Madera Estates and are greeted by customized details including a sign, photos, and ceremony programs. The candlelight in the foyer sets the tone for a romatic event!
With the guests seated, it’s finally time for Lauren & Andrew to see each other for the first time on their wedding day!
A mariachi band was the perfect addition to this ceremony. To greet the guests was a sign that read “Pick a seat, not a side. You’re loved by both the groom and bride!”
The pair expressed vows and exchanged rings. Before they knew it, Lauren & Andrew were pronounced husband and wife!
After the first kiss, the crowd cheered as the newlyweds walked back down the aisle.
With the guests enjoying cocktail hour, the bridal party took advantage of some group photos. They also celebrated with a private toast inside the Whiskey Lounge! What a great way to kick off the festivities!
Before the guests were allowed to enter the Hacienda Ballroom, the newlyweds took a few photos alone. How romantic are these? Wow!

Lauren & Andrew beamed as they entered their wedding reception as husband and wife!
With dinner completed, the first dances and toasts are underway. Father/daughter and mother/son dances always have the room filled with tears of joy!
Just look at that GRIN on Andrew’s face! You can tell that he’s thrilled with his stunning bride!
No one wasted any time chowing down on the dessert table. Yum! From donuts to cookies and other pastries, all the guests found something that they enjoyed!
With the formalities completed, the guests hit the dance floor! DJU Entertainment always does a phenomenal job keeping the dance floor packed!
Bouquet and garter tosses are a right of passage right? These are always hilarious – especially the garter toss!
In the blink of an eye, the reception is coming to an end. Lauren & Andrew enjoy one final spin around the dance floor before exiting the reception.
There’s no better way to end a wedding than with a sparkler send-off! Surrounded by their family and friends, the pair headed off to start their happily ever after as husband and wife.
