Mia Celebrates the Anniversary of Amanda and Ryan!
















Bridal gown designer, Sareh Nouri, sought to design gowns that were sophisticated, traditional, ethereal and elegant. Which is so fitting since Amanda and Ryan's Houston wedding was just that. It was only natural for Amanda to walk down the aisle in a beautiful lace, modified a-line gown by the designer.

THEIR STORY
From the moment the couple met at a Christmas party in 2011, they knew there was something special between them. Unfortunately, inadequate timing kept Ryan in Midland for work and Amanda in graduate school.

But by Spring of 2013, Ryan was back in Houston, and the couple officially started dating. By the end of 2014, on Amanda's birthday, Ryan was down on one knee asking Amanda to be his bride. The private proposal was followed by a surprise party that included family and close friends.

Amanda and Ryan was married at the historic St. Martin's Episcopal Church and had their reception at the beautiful River Oaks Country Club.



Now, a year later, Amanda and Ryan live happily in Garden Oaks with their black lab, Gill. 



There is nothing more rewarding than knowing we played a tiny role in our brides' big days! If you are a Mia Bride and would like to have your love story featured, please email tina@miabridalcouture.com. We'd love to hear from you! 

Rivini Spring 2017 Trunk Show, August 26-27
















"Romance meets sexy meets California dreamer.
The soul of each dress is explored through the chaos of textures in layered transparencies mixed with floral laces, glistening beading and hints of subtle color."
-Rita Vinieris

Mia Celebrates the Anniversary of Michelle and Stephen



Okay Mia Musers, I hope you have prepared yourselves for a picture overload because this anniversary post is a GOOD one, and we couldn't bear to leave a single thing out!

As you probably know, we hold every Mia bride near and dear to our hearts. We never hesitate to show them off. However, today's feature is a bit different. Because not only have we known Neil Hamil agent Michelle before she became a Mia bride but also because she took one of our favorite Amsale gowns and vamped it to a whole other level! 

As a lover of things avant-garde and well-tailored, it wasn't a surprise that Michelle would quickly be drawn to Amsale. But what's a girl to do to add her own flare and make a gown her own? Well...deconstruct the gown and create 3 different looks, of course. For her July 20, 2013 nuptials, Michelle walked down the aisle in a gorgeous Amsale silk magnolia, keyhole back fit-to-flare. During the reception at the ultra chic Hotel Zaza, the keyhole back came off and the Dannijo jewels were stacked on. Towards the end of the night, the happy couple was showered with confetti and Michelle threw on a laced-back moto jacket to leave the reception. One word: GENIUS.



Michelle and Stephen's love story is solid proof that timing is everything! It wasn't until a random run-in at the Post Office six months after meeting did the story of Michelle and Stephen really start.
