Absolutely love this Same Day Edit!  I wanted to wait until this week to blog because the couple just held a big family party this weekend where they shared it again via DVD.

Here is the coolest part about this SDE… it was a complete surprise to the bride and groom!! That’s right… they had no idea!  Michelle’s parents planned the surprise & the couple thoroughly enjoyed the reveal.

Michelle & Eddie’s totally gorgeous wedding took place at possibly one of the coolest hotels I’ve ever stayed at:  Hotel ZaZa in Houston.  If you are a photography buff or a movie/music buff (I happen to be both) you could spend HOURS in this place.  Not only is the decor super cool and hip but there are unique photos EVERYWHERE of celebrities.  We’re not talking about headshots here, but real pieces of art.  SO COOL.  I would say that this hotel is a cross between the Hard Rock hotel in Vegas and the Hudson in NYC.  Oh… and the name of the suite where the bride got ready?? BLACK LABEL.  So hot!!

And last… I can’t say enough of the wedding coordinator that we were sooooo lucky to work with.  Ann Whittington is PHE-NOM-E-NAL.  Any of you Houston brides reading this… pick up the phone right now and hire her!!  This event had soooo many details to organize including a mini-orchestra for the ceremony and a COMPLETE ROOM CHANGEOVER for the reception (including taking down all the draping and revealing 2 bars made completely out of ice.  Whhhaaaattt?)

Thanks to Michelle & Eddie for inviting us to be a part of your wedding day in Houston.  You guys are awesome!
