The Future Is Bright

When planning her April 2018 wedding to beau Corey Corbit, Alicia Stolte desired to keep things simple and elegant. “But I also wanted a fun, bright flair,” she explains. The inherently fun and sexy backdrop provided by the Hotel ZaZa laid the groundwork, and her dream team of vendors — including planner Kate Powell, LJ Flower Co. and Aztec — took it from there. Alicia’s desired aesthetic carried over to her perfectly natural hair and makeup look, courtesy of Sunkissed and Made Up and Lindsey Kidd. Her gorgeous Rivini wedding gown from Ivory Bridal Atelier upped the sparkle factor, and with blooms in bold shades and tunes by local fave Password, the Corbit wedding had plenty of fun flair!

For nearly 50 years now, the nightclub, which started out as a risqué dinner theater in the late '70s before turning into a gay disco in the '80s and then into the dance club and live music venue it is today, has served as a safe haven for generations for Houstonian outliers and mainstreamers alike. And now, thanks to Houston-reared producer, director and fashion designer Marcus Pontello, 33, the venerated Houston nightlife staple is getting the silver screen treatment.
