Dreamy Houston Zoo Wedding

Dreamy Houston Zoo Wedding


It all started with frequent trips to the zoo as a young child and a de Gournay’s Amazonia wallpaper. This was the ultimate inspiration for Cat and Winston’s incredibly dreamy Houston Zoo Wedding.

Cat continued the theme throughout the wedding design with thoughtful details that were meant to stand out. Such as, her my grandmother’s collection of ginger jars, zoo-animal topiaries, a blueprint seating chart drafted by Winston (an incredible architect), a face painting station for kids of all ages, Barnum’s Animal Crackers for parting favors and her wedding shoes which were ​Aquazurra for de Gournay, in the exact print as the inspirational wallpaper.

Cat’s bouquet was a lush combo of off-white and blush blooms such as: white peonies, antique hydrangea, clematis, ranunculus butterfly, as well as secret garden and pink O’Hara roses for a pop of color.

Meticulously designed wedding invitations introduced the zoo theme to their 300 guests.  Cat combined the de Gournay Amazonia wallpaper with her favorite zoo animals to set the tone and give their guests a glimpse of what they could expect on the big day.

For an extra personal touch, a similar design to her grandmother’s ginger jars was printed on the wedding envelopes.

By far one of our biggest projects, our team went through over 2,000+ blooms and greenery!

The head table contained 33 stone urns with a mixture of pastels and blues, with minimal greens; while large trumpet vessels overflowing with green foliage added height and petite mint juleps cups were employed to accent the arrangements and punctuate each stone urn.

Custom made de Gournay Amazonia linens were laid over Tuscany light blue linens for added contrast and accents.

There were 6 distinct patterns and colored linens used throughout the reception, including a green pattern for the cake table and a blue china pattern for round guest tables.

Twenty ginger jars overflowing with blush and white blooms with touches of greenery were placed atop the guest tables to continue the theme. The ginger jars were compliments of Cat’s grandmother adding a very special touch that was incorporated into the overall theme, truly setting her wedding apart.

This couple made sure their wedding was truly unique, from the invitations to the wedding cake and Cat’s shoes, allowing guests to see their personality shine throughout every design element.

This Houston Zoo wedding was so unique and magical event that it was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings this month! We were so excited to share a mutual dream come true from both our end and Cat’s!
