"You Are My Greatest Adventure" was inspiration for this sweet couples December wedding ceremony and reception. As guests arrived they were greeted by a string trio, which played modern day music chosen by the couple. Following the ceremony guests enjoyed a cocktail hour outside in the courtyard with hand passed hors d'oeuvres provided by Behind the Bash Catering.
After cocktail hour, guests proceeded upstairs for dinner, drinks and toasts. A unique take on table numbers, guests found their seats at the different destinations which this couple has visited. Following toasts, the bride and groom shared their first dance together as husband and wife just before getting the party started!
For a fun surprise, Smoosh, arrived to serve some delicious ice cream sandwiches enjoyed by all as "late night" snack. The couple then made their grand exit with bubbles outside in the courtyard!
Sophisticated Delights "The Best from Around the World" concept featured a different decor look in each of Station 3's spaces to showcase the diversity of styles that the building can accommodate. The Courtyard area had a Moroccan flare as you entered the party. Once guests signed in they were then directed to the downstairs inside area of Station 3 which featured country chic/vintage decor for the Cocktail Hour. After Cocktail Hour was over all guests were invited upstairs for a "City View" inspired look for the 3 course dinner provided by the host's and coordinators of the event, Sophisticated Delight. All photographs featured below were taken by the talented Joey T Photography.
What do you get when you combine Fashion with Houston's leading bloggers? The ultimate fabulous and inspiring event! It was such an amazing experience to work with the Simon group to produce SP16 The Luxe Show this Spring.
Bright floral, fun patterns, and exquisite rentals were all brought into Station 3 to add even more charm to the space. The night began with cocktails and dinner, and later included our very own private fashion show that showcased pieces from La Perla's newest collection. Simon showcased beautiful products from Gucci, La Perla, Erdem, and The Webster throughout the night as guests took photos with one another and chatted about all things fashion!

We Are No Subject Event Production
One of the most frequently asked questions we hear from our client's and perspective clients is, "Do I really need to have a Wedding Planner or is that just something you guys [Venue Coordinators] can do?" Our answer is two parts, "Yes, hire a Wedding Planner", and, "No, we are not able to perform all of the duty's of a Wedding Planner and perform our jobs to the best of our ability too." It is physically not possible to be in 2 places at once.
While we, as Venue Coordinator's, are just as invested in making sure your special day is a success this is not accomplished without the help of a Wedding Planner.
The Venue Coordinator
Venue Coordinators, simply put, are employees of the venue in which we work. We act as a liaison between the bride and groom and our venue’s operations team. Our responsibilities are those pertaining to your experience with us, directly: providing tours and walk throughs of the venue, consulting on your layout, customizing your lighting options, discussing logistics of building use, finalizing beverage choices, etc.
On your wedding day, our focus is delivering our contracted services with our clients which includes ensuring the venue set up is accurate [tables, chairs and bar setup only], the bars are fully stocked at all times and moved to the appropriate designated room at the agreed upon timeline, assist guests with transitioning upstairs and back downstairs again with our onsite lift, answering and tending to any vendor questions concerning the building and our policies and insure that any room flips and tear downs happen seamlessly.
Another main difference is that though you will be working with one or two individuals throughout the planning process, there is no guarantee that this will be the same individuals that will be on site on your big day. Our in-office staff do not also work all of our events. We have a very talented and highly trained team that performs these services specifically and are well informed of all expectations given by our clients to fulfill our agreed upon services.
The Wedding Planner
A professional Wedding Planner, simply put, is your personal consultant. They focus specifically on the little details that brings all of the vendors that you have hired and the overall vision together.
From the initial planning stages [providing venue options, reviewing contracts, creating floor plans, researching and recommending vendors, etc] to wedding day preparation, [creating an itinerary/timeline, confirming details with all contracted vendors, confirming and understanding all of the decor details, runs your Rehearsal for you, etc]. Your Wedding Planner is the one that has been present for every decision and/or has reviewed every detail with you before the big day.
Come wedding day, the Wedding Planner is also the one that gets you down the aisle, over-see time management [ceremony, processional, recessional, cocktail hour transition, grand entrance, speeches, dancing etc.], prompt the DJ/band for announcements while cuing in all other vendors for transitions and updates, troubleshoot and ensure quality control of set up, including personalized details and decor. Even if you only decide to hire a "Month of Planner" or "Day of Planner", as many of our clients do, they are still pivotal in taking on the responsibilities of coordinating these final details, providing you with the security that a professional knows every last detail about your special day and will be there to make sure the day is executed exactly how you envisioned. These individuals are personally hired by you and they work exclusively for you.
Though these 2 roles [Venue Coordinators & Wedding Planners] do cross over in some aspects throughout the event, each has very distinct differences and are both essential to the success of your event. If you have not yet hired a Wedding Planner for your special day please reach out to one of your Venue Coordinators for recommendations of trusted professionals. It will be worth every penny!
This 60th Birthday was an elegant evening fit for the man of the hour. The event was made up of 3 separate spaces and featured new looks and entertainment in each space. The cocktail reception took place outside in the Courtyard under a canopy of Edison bulbs. Guests were greeted by models carrying trays of champagne as they entered the party. A step and repeat banner was located in the courtyard as well for guests to be photographed as they arrived for the party. After Cocktail Hour, guests where then escorted through a pipe and draped hallway downstairs (hiding the pre-set After Party decor) to head upstairs for a five course dinner with Cristal Champagne and entertainment provided by the talented Lena Hall (one of the birthday boy's favorite bands from New York City that he flew in for the event). The 3-D cake modeled after his favorite wine was wheeled out and presented towards the end of dinner. After the cake was cut, the guests then went downstairs for an after party featuring the 80’s group the Spazmatics. Chocolate bon bons, cigars and signature drinks had the guests partying late into the night at this memorable birthday event.

We hit "nothing but net" this past Friday for a special private event at Station 3! We were so grateful to work with this amazing group, and would like to send a special "thank you" to all of the vendors that made this night a "ballin" time!
