Rachel & Josh | The Milestone

luxury dallas wedding

.

Our team was honored and blessed to be able to take part in Rachel + Josh’s luxury Dallas wedding. I must say I was a bit nervous working with them, LOL. Rachel is the Director of Communications for Daystar Television Network and Joshua is a singer/songwriter for Planet Shakers. To say they know a little thing about event production is an understatement. So we definitely brought our A game for them both, expecting nothing less than perfection. Their luxury Dallas wedding was definitely the largest scale and most detailed, with coordinating communication with over 50 vendors and 350 guests, some of which required very specific logistics like a surprise piano performance, synchronized fireworks show and helicopter departure. It was such a beautiful and exciting day! So much blessing to you both! Cheers,

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.

A modern garden setting at Aristide Event Center

Can I just say how much I love this team! Inspired by all that is garden, I wanted to bring together a modern approach at a garden styled setting. I love the clean, crisp look of slate gray furniture paired with wild foliage and simple white/silver dishware.  We knocked it out of the park with the vibrant, rich colors and soft hand painted details in the cake and invitation suite.

Great Gatsby Inspired Bridal Session with Lauren Peele Photography

We are so excited to FINALLY be able to share these beautiful images of our recent bride, Erin. Her marriage to hubby Shea took place at the Omni Mandalay last weekend. It was dripping with details all inspired by the art deco time period of the 20’s.

Here her beautiful sleek 20’s gown from Warren Barron Bridal paired with a soft, lush bouquet by Stems of Dallas created the perfect image for capturing. Photography by Lauren Peele and makeup and hair by Miss Painted Lady.
