Ouisie's Table Engagement Dinner

This styled engagement dinner at Ouisie’s Restaurant in Houston, Texas, is perfect for many reasons but mainly, for its size. Many couples find themselves in between a wedding that isn’t too large but not quite an elopement. They want a beautiful celebration without the fuss of a huge event. This private event space mixes the fun and formality of a wedding with a unique, open space that is just the right size. The colors for this shoot are bright and airy, consisting of white, blush, and green, as seen in the invitation suite, along with notes of metallic gold.

In their own unique laidback style, the bride and groom only have eyes for each other. She’s dressed in an ultra-modern white jumpsuit while he looks cool and comfortable in a light blue long sleeve shirt and dark blue pants. The bride even goes barefoot!

The long reception table is surrounded by walls crawling with greenery. Above, strings of Edison lights await the sunset. A centerpiece with tall white taper candles on both sides is the main focal point.

Place settings are crafted with clear and white gold-rimmed plates, gold-rimmed stemware and gold flatware. The metallic décor is balanced with the wooden table, creating a clean and simple presentation.

The intimate patio setting is perfect for a rehearsal dinner or a small reception just for those closest to the bride and groom. It’s also ideal for stealing a kiss or two while basking in the gentle evening sun.

This gorgeous outdoor shoot reminds us that sometimes, less really is more. A small wedding filled with lots of natural light and greenery creates a setting that is warm and inviting and full of life – no matter how many guests are on the list.
