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!

We acknowledged that deciding who and what is cool is not only a moving target but also entirely subjective. And that attempting to “rank” the coolest people in Houston is a fool’s errand, one that will leave us immediately open to criticism. “You think she is cooler than him? You included this person?! You left off that one!?"

SUMMER’S HERE, AND the pop-up art exhibits have begun. Maybe it’s a response to the relentless heat and unpredictably weird weather, but during June through August, the city’s more forward-thinking (and often relatively young) art mavens embrace an approach to curation and presentation that is both cost-conscious and community-centric.
