Every wedding that we have the privilege of planning is truly an honor. Brides and Grooms trust us with their wedding vision and handling all of the small and large aspects of their Big Day. On November 3, 2017 we had the pleasure of unfolding another Ultimate Wedding; this time in Las Vegas, NV.
Jonoa and Austin are a couple that you can not help but fall in love with. Jonoa has been a dear friend of mine for the last few years and it could not have meant more to me that she trusted me with her wedding. Random fact; I feel more planning pressure when my client is a friend or family member. Not for any other reason than the pressure and expectations I place on myself to be perfect.
Austin proposed to Jonoa on New Year’s Eve 2016, at their church in Las Vegas surrounded by their family and closest friends. Not soon after, they set a wedding date for November 3, 2017.
The theme for their wedding was rustic…rustic love as I saw it. When you spend more than a few minutes with these two you can not help but be inspired by their love for each other and the pure joy display. “Whatever you want babe”, was a common phrase they would say to each other during our planning meetings.
This dear couple wanted nothing more than to include their family and loved ones in their day. They invited their guests to arrive at the ceremony location early as the Bride with her bridesmaids and the Groom with his groomsmen took their pre ceremony photos (separate of course).
Lastly, right before it was time to head down the aisle,Jonoa and Austin said a special prayer together. Wiping tears away, the moment had come, it was time for the ceremony to begin.
As guests rushed to their seats, music played, the bridal party lined up, and the area filled with emotion. This was it, the day had finally come Austin was about to marry his best friend.
After the bridal party walked in, all eyes turned to the back. The chorus from How Great Thou Art by Carrie Underwood (one of Austin’s favorite worship songs) played over the crowd as Mr. Savou escorted his daughter down to the altar. Eyes filled with tears as the bride and groom joined hands and the ceremony began.
The reception was equally as special. The decor space was full of garland that the families brought all the way from Hawaii with deep toned red roses everywhere. The room was light by candle light and the garden lights that shined in from outside. Truly romantic.
The night continued with lots of special Polynesian dancing and even a special dance tribute from Austin to Jonoa. As the night began to wind down, the guests were given glow stick to send the Mr. and Mrs. off for the night. Giving final greetings to their guests as they exited for the night with bright and vibrant colors swirling around them. Almost as if to symbol the many different tones of love they share for each other.
It was truly an honor working with this couple. Another Ultimate wedding and a wonderful first wedding for the Ultimate team in Las Vegas.

We’re pumped to share the wedding details of Amy & Steve! These two were recently married at The Springs in Katy! As always we’re so glad to have been selected to serve as the wedding planning team for these two lovebirds!
Yep, I’m thankful that we knocked another one out of the park! Please take a look below and drop a comment or two! We cannot say THANK YOU enough to Werner Co. Photos for these images! He did a great job!
One last congrats to our happy couple!
Every once in awhile we get to meet and totally connect with a couple. This was precisely the case here… Kyna and Kabir are first, a match made in heaven, and next, the perfect ULTIMATE couple! They truly embraced the Ultimate Planning Experience, trusted us 100%, and enjoyed a flawless evening at The Bourgainvilleas in Houston. Their love story (which we quickly coined as Louisiana meets Nigeria) is rich and full of romance! So we, of course, pulled from that when we sat down and designed a wedding weekend that they would never forget! In purposely bold hues of red and deep purple, this wedding was a perfect combination of clean and glam! Together with the awesome RH Photoarts and some of our preferred top notch vendors such as The Secret Floral Garden, Belaan Beauty, and Susie’s Cakes, we made Ultimate Happen yet again! Hope you enjoy the awesome images below! Congrats again to Kyna + Kabir. It was an absolute pleasure serving as your wedding planning and design team!
Please comment and share and pop back over regularly for more Ultimate Weddings & Events!!!

Originally, wayyy back in 2016, this was the purpose of the Making It Happen brunch presented by yours truly! This year, we wanted to dig a little deeper! On a very cloudy/humid, but non-rainy (thank the Lord) Saturday in April… the ladies of Ultimate Events Unlimited got together with a few dozen of our closest girlfriends and had a phenomenal brunch! Together with some of the FINEST vendors in Texas, we were able to motivate, inspire, and treat Houston’s hardest working ladies to a few hours of much needed “me” time! While enjoying the delicious culinary creations of Chef Javani King, the ladies were presented with quick motivational talks on “Making It Happen”. Our speakers, legal expert Temi Siyanbade and social media & marketing strategist Kae Whitaker, really took the time to help “get us together” mentally. Sometimes all you need is to know that you are not alone and be reassured that there ARE simple steps you can take, to MAKE IT HAPPEN! In short, we learned to focus, to leap, and to prioritize. Oh, but there was so much more than that! Take a look at the fun below:

Dear Corporate Team Member, Executive Assistant, and/or Human Resource Manager,
The corporate world is becoming less and less old-fashioned in every aspect of how business is handled. Gone are the days of pen and paper to take notes… there are apps and tablets for that. Employees are clocking in online instead of physically clocking in at a time clock. Every smart company has a website and a profile on all the hottest social media platforms. Discussions are no longer held around the round table, but instead through group chat rooms on hand held devices. Thanks to all of these recent tech-savvy developments, we are moving at a much faster pace in the workplace! However, how much more work is actually getting done? Upper management is steadily piling on the trending employee morale tasks, in efforts to decrease staff turn over. Totally justifiable reasoning.
So what does all of this mean for the main duties YOU signed on to fulfill? Sometimes these duties can come as a surprise. I’m betting you signed on to keep the company organized, to increase communication internally and externally, to create an efficient, positive working environment… yes? Alas, perhaps now there is an unwritten job description addendum… you’ve got to keep this team happy! Insure efficiency through effective human resource management. Actual conversations, shiny certificates, and virtual high fives! Let’s not even mention planning the very necessary employee morale events! Let’s see… we’ve got monthly staff recognition ceremonies, family centered summer activities, company picnics, team travel arrangements, friendly internal employee competitions, and the highly anticipated annual holiday party! Yep, we’ll just start calling you the Executive Administrative Manager, Office Assistant, Receptionist, HR Director, Event Planner, and Fire Chief! (SMILE!) Listen, we know you’ve got to keep the company going no matter what, so if you need to do it you will! Afterall, you are THE team player! But, could there be an answer to alleviate all of this extra event planning pressure off of your shoulders? Could there be the possibility that you could entrust these duties to a capable third party and say… focus on your actual job description? Sure there is and I’m so glad you asked!!!
Hiring a professional event planning firm to make sure your corporate event is technologically up to date, thoroughly organized, logistically planned out, (especially for those hiccups you may not think of), entertaining, professionally branded, and, most importantly, on budget is the best plan! No money in the budget for a third party event planning firm? I’d beg to differ! Ultimate Events Unlimited is positioned to manage the entire event budget inclusive of all event needs! Laymen’s terms? We fit right into the budget!

Here are some helpful reasons, choosing Ultimate Events Unlimited might be best for you in all of your employee morale and meeting planning endeavors:
One way to gain the interest of the people involved in your corporate meeting is to plan the gathering at a unique venue. Somtimes getting out of the office the first step to an effective event!
The idea of these unique locations for your event or meeting is not news in this industry. Most of the best venues are constantly booked. Our team is perfect at pairing our clients with the perfect venue and event needs! Save time and let us handle the busy work!
It’s no secret that food and beverages are sometimes the best part of a corporate meeting or event (especially without the proper event planner in place). It is crucial that we make sure the food and beverages served are innovative & specific to your event needs! We do our very best to think outside of the box and WOW the appetites of our guests, no matter the meeting type. Gone are the days where the budget is blown on a dry chicken breast meal!

The above reasons may sound simple, but sticking to the budget is not. As your event planner, we will make sure you get the most out of your budget and that you remain on budget! We’ve found that upper management REALLY likes this perk!
It’s super important to properly brand your event. We take time to insure every detail is branded. This keeps the company’s brand going strong long after the conclusion of the event!
