Royal Sonesta Houston is a memorable venue for elegant Houston weddings, and Rachel and Zack’s glamorous wedding day was an occasion none of their guests will ever forget.

Rachel and Zack’s paths were meant to cross; as babies they lived just two blocks apart; growing up they had friends in common, went to rival high schools, and after college again just lived two blocks apart. However, it wasn’t until they both decided to try online dating that they actually met. 11 months after their first date, Zack proposed, and Rachel said yes.

Their wedding ceremony, dinner, and dancing all took place at Royal Sonesta Houston, and their black-and-white decor, sparkling chandeliers, dramatic long tables, and guests in black tie all set the scene for the evening.

Rachel and Zack were so happy with their wedding day that they returned to Royal Sonesta Houston a year later to celebrate their anniversary with an exclusive private dining experience at Table One.  They enjoyed the same meal that they had on their wedding day and were also welcomed with a special amenity and note to celebrate the special milestone in their lives.
