Styled Editorial | Rosewood Mansion

Inspired by the artistic traditions of Europe, we took our vibrant palette of deep jewel tones, terra cotta and heavy greenery to execute a lush and moody rendering. The Rosewood Mansion with its 16th century Renaissance influence created the perfect backdrop for our design. Our tabletop consisted of wood and steel constructed tables paired with upholstered chairs from AFR. All tabletop décor was kept clean and simple so not to compete with our terracotta stucco backdrop and ornate floral table runner. We used Versace dinnerware from POSH along with Pure stemware and beautiful Cutipol Rondo gold flatware. The floral runner by Lush Couture Floral was a dream! Full of color, movement and depth the runner poured from the mouth of a terra cotta tilting pot and cascaded down to the ground. Our invite suite was beautiful executed by Clara Doyle. With torn linen paper edging, the suite played nicely into our natural feel and Mediterranean influence as well as paired beautifully with the jewels of Shapiro DiamondsJar Cakery perfectly captured the pattern from the pillows on our tabletop and we kept the cake floral minimal with a simple swoop of bougainvillea. The bar was so much fun to style. I love the natural, lived in quality of a good mixed cocktail. We went for a Mint and Walnut Julep with beautiful details such as fresh mint, walnuts, Italian Port Wine, figs and a touch of Belgium linens. Our beautiful model was dolled up by Wendy Zerrudo with a soft updo and later was dropped for romantic waves. Our dresses from Winnie Couture were the sight of sophistication and romance with soft detailing in lace cap sleeves, intricate backing and soft silhouette lines.

Summertime brunch’n with The Brides of North Texas

 View More: http://stephanierosephoto.pass.us/bont-brunch-fall-winter-2015

When life gives you lemons, add vodka and throw a party.  That is just what we did when coming up with the concept for the Fall/Winter 2015 reveal for the Brides of North Texas.  Grit and Gold was privileged with the honor of planning & styling their semiannual brunch at the historic T&P Station. To beat the Texas summer heat, we designed a lawn feel, bringing the outdoors inside. 

Black and white honeycomb linens perfectly complemented the 1920s architecture of the venue while allowing the flowers to pop. Arrangements from Stems of Dallas displaying orange tulips, yellow ranunculus, hydrangeas, and combinations of mangos, apricots and lemons caught everyone’s eye and smelled good enough to eat. Everyone was sent away with a yummy lemon bar treat from The Jenny Layne Bakery.

Lounge furniture, boxwood hedges, and large umbrellas lent a feel of an easy garden party and made everybody feel right at home.  Top vendors of the area were able to mingle with ease while sipping on mimosas and sampling some southern favorites like chicken and waffles.

Villa Inspired Bride and Maids Shoot

I have been swooning over these images for months now and FINALLY get to show them off! Our team designed this tabletop concept for The Brides of North Texas’ Fall/Winter issue that hit the stands today! I am so proud to have worked alongside some of the most talented people in the business to bring this concept to life. Our design was inspired by the architecture of this private residence, a Charles Dilbeck designed estate originally built in 1938. Check out our images and of course the behind the scenes video by Splendor Films below.
