Dallas Wedding at DeGolyer House with Bows & Arrows

Can a client’s style be your spirit animal?! If so, I think mine would definitely be Sarah. From the moment we met, I knew that our collected wedding vision was completely parallel. I truly enjoyed every minute of our time together and this design. It was just so natural and she was open to pushing each and every boundary.

The ceremony took place in the woman’s garden of the Dallas Arboretum where Bows & Arrows hand crafted an altar of birch wood logs, twisted chiffon and loose greenery. Bridesmaids wore stunning gold lace assembles which perfectly complimented the bride’s gown with lace neckline and cap sleeves. Sarah wanted the day and night to feel organic, soft and romantic so we went with bare rustic tables, lush vessel free florals that almost felt to be growing from the tables. We kept the design clean and not overly busy so that the Degolyer House really shined as the showcase. The night was all about family style dining, fun with friends and enjoying their precious commitment. We are so honored and humbled to have been a part of Sarah and Chris’ big day.

Jessica and Jonathan’s Private Estate Texas Wedding

Being a San Diego native, Jessica was excited to see someone with a towel depicting the California flag also enjoying her apartment’s pool. “Are you from California?” Jessica asked. “No, but that towel is,” replied Jonathan. Of course this led to multiple conversations since they lived in the same complex that eventually led to an exchange of phone numbers. After a surprise beachside proposal, the pair agreed Jessica’s parents’ estate in Burleson, TX was the perfect place for their October wedding. Going for a timeless look, the bridesmaids and groomsmen were dressed in black with pops of deep berry hues in the bouquets and boutonnieres. The bride was perfection in her lace dress from De Ma Fille, Chanel shoes, and delicate updo. Her elegant veil completed her look and was passed down from her sister. Holding an arrangement made of dahlia, hellebore, garden roses and hydrangea, Jessica met her groom in front of a pair of beautiful oaks. The two said their “I Do’s” and there was not a dry eye to be found.

From the twinkling lights above the dance floor to the gold chargers and romantic flowers, guests were immediately drawn to the reception space. Personal touches from the bride and groom could be seen everywhere – in the photo wrapped tree and the Star Wars themed cigar bar. After feasting on gourmet burgers and grilled cheese, family and friends could either head to the dance floor or hit up the photo booth.

Their elegant naked cake featured three flavors: Italian creme, strawberry, and chocolate. This made it impossible to chose and left many loved ones going back for seconds. Rather than a traditional send off, Jonathan and Jessica opted for a midnight toast and continued to dance the night away. One could not ask for a sweeter couple!

Fort Worth Wedding at Ashton Depot

015

Thank goodness Louis is better at a second first impression.  After their first meeting, MaryEllen was convinced he was more interested in his banana pudding (he did have 2 cups) than he was in her.  As fate would have it, they were given another chance to connect while hanging out with mutual friends shortly after that first encounter.

Fast forward four years, and Louis was able to surprise MaryEllen on their anniversary at their favorite Italian restaurant Margie’s. He asked her to marry him while a photographer captured the whole thing.  MaryEllen was surprised again at the end of the night when Louis had planned an entire engagement party at Chimy’s that included all of their family and close friends.

MaryEllen has always had a love for St. Patrick’s Cathedral in downtown Fort Worth and when she found out the priest she grew up with was being transferred there, she knew it was destiny.  They picked at a date in October and decided on a palette of navy, pinks, and berry tones.

Bridesmaids wore gorgeous long dresses with a blue floral print from Dessy and the groom looked quite dashing in a navy suit. Maryellen flew to NY to bring home the perfect gown from none other than Kleinfelds. Her hair pulled halfway up with a floral accent, she was just stunning with her ‘something borrowed’ diamond necklace from her mother.

Gold chivari chairs, gold chargers, gold votives and a golden overlays set the tone for a sophisticated evening and perfectly matched the couple’s invitation suite from Sweet Magnolia Paper. Friends and family were unable to stay in their seats when the band started to play and couldn’t help but get seconds for dessert. Cakewalk Bakeshop was able to construct a 4-tiered masterpiece with gold leafing filled with pistachio, strawberry and basil buttercreams as well as raspberry ganache. In lieu of a traditional groom’s cake, Steel City Pops was able to do a variation of Louis’ favorite treat – vanilla pop with Snickers crumble.

The happy Mr. and Mrs. were sent off in a tunnel of sparklers and were able to take a quick break before having to be at the airport by 3:30AM!! Congratulations you two!
