Meredith + Josh | Ashton Depot

This Tuscany inspired wedding is so dear to me. Meredith + Josh, their family and their trust in our team is the epitome of why I started my planning + design business. With her mother and father living in California, she need full-service assistance to pull together her day. Josh proposed in Napa Valley and California was near and dear to them both, so it only made sense to bring that Napa/Old World feel to them in Fort Worth. While most might just see Fort Worth history in the walls of the Ashton Depot, we felt that it’s historic marble floors and towering arched windows could definitely take on a different transformation. So we set to work designing a soft, romantic scene that would tie the two very different places together.

First we started with her ceremony which took place in the terrace of the Ashton. We wanted to emphasize the beautiful, natural greenery that already adorns the space along with a beautiful stone water feature. We kept it natural, free flowing on the floral arch and paired with native grass and greenery planters to enclose the space making it feel like a garden.

And what guest can resist a glass of champagne to greet them on a beautiful Texas Spring day?! Guests sipped while they waiting for the processional to begin.

Moving into the ballroom, we chose pale dusty blue linens and florals heavy in organic greenery, soft creams, white and hints of dusty blush blooms. A draped entrance provided a simple, yet statement entrance.

The father of the bride’s favorite Padron cigars were a must so our team made sure to set a beautiful spread for him and all his guys!

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.
