BAY AREA HOUSTON MAGAZINE
Opened in December 2011, they are booking everything from weddings and receptions to school and corporate events. If you are planning a gathering, and want a full service venue, complete with an Event Planner, catering and bar services, valet and security, then Di Amici Upscale Events will knock your designer socks off.
Di Amici Upscale Events is 8,000 square feet of warm, Tuscan-inspired elegance. Co–owner and Event Planner, Paula Holland, has 14 years experience in Interior Design and loves making people’s dreams come true.
“Now I have the opportunity to decorate one place, design for individual events, and still work with people. I don’t want to sit at a desk,” says Holland.
Cohesiveness is evident throughout Di Amici, from the teamwork spirit to the design and flow of the rooms and décor. With the hand painted murals and balcony, to the chandeliers and matching wall sconces, this venue is breathtaking. And what bride would not feel like a princess in the multi – crystal accented bridal suite? What great vision to have a “man cave” for the groom and his attendants, complete with a flat screen TV, shuffleboard, and fooseball. Later, Holland told me the man cave idea was inspired when her sons told her, “Do something for the guys!”
They provide exceptional cuisine, tailored to the client, presented with class and efficiency by uniformed wait staff. The name, Di Amici, was inspired by the Italian word "friends" and is applicable to how Holland treats her vendors and clients alike. Yes, it is a business, but there is a personal flavor that permeates her dealings.
For weddings, clients can book the whole property, complete with the outside terrace, family room, bridal suite, man cave, and formal areas for the wedding and reception. The location is convenient for a weekend wedding where guests can enjoy the local sites such as the Kemah Boardwalk, Nasa, and Galveston.
Additionally, Di Amici Upscale Events is the perfect venue for corporate events, school events and proms, graduations, and retirement celebrations. Whatever event you have in mind, they can design a party, and deliver it with class.
