Private Ranch wedding in Glenrose Texas

Check out this beautiful spring wedding we did in Glen Rose, TX! The lovely couple couldn’t imagine a better place to say their “I Do’s” than Groom Jamie’s family ranch in Glenrose, TX. The 12,000 acre Ten Triple X Ranch had more than enough space for their 200+ guests.

Sunflowers lined the aisle of their non-traditional outdoor ceremony. Bridesmaids, sans bouquets, made their way to the altar in strapless papaya dresses. Bride Taylor, with her hair pulled softly away from her face, was escorted down the aisle by her father as she made her way towards Jamie. The couple swapped vows under a cedar tree arbor strewn with greenery as friends and family looked on.

Guests made their way into the barn where potted cactus centerpieces and gold chargers graced the tabletop. Lights hung from the rafters of the 1850’s barn succeeded in lending a magical feel to the evening. Arrangements of orange poppies, pink peonies and assorted ranunculus allowed the sunflowers to pop. An eight-piece band set the stage for a lively celebration as guests hit the dance floor and dined on Tex-Mex.

Summertime brunch’n with The Brides of North Texas

 View More:

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.

We pulled together an altar concept that is too die for if I must say so myself!! For our full service planning, our team can draw up most any dream our brides might have!! If you can dream it, we can draw it and then design it! Check out how this came to life with help of Posh Floral, Stephanie Brazzle Photography and the Nuvo Room!

Taylor + Matt’s colorful, modern wedding at Artspace 111

When Taylor was visiting a friend in Oklahoma, she decided to tag along for family movie night. It was there, while watching Despicable Me 2, that she met her friend’s cousin Matthew. It didn’t take long for the two to hit it off. A couple years later during a romantic trip to Prague the pair came to the mutual decision to marry and began planning their Fort Worth wedding. Taylor had been driving by Artspace 111 since she was a little girl and knew it was the perfect place for their art filled celebration.  Glamour was present at every turn. The bride was the epitome of elegance in her BHLDN gown and floral crown.  A bouquet of berry scabiosas, pale pink roses, and vibrant pink peonies displayed Taylor’s love of pairing pastels with deeper hues.  The happy couple said their “I Do’s” under a gorgeous floral arch dripping in greenery with pops of cream, lilac and berry that perfectly complemented the backdrop of Michelle Brandley’s “Showgirls.” After the ceremony, guests were escorted to the tent out on the terrace sparkling with lights.  Each place setting was adorned in a variety of vintage china and gold silverware.  A runner of vines and greenery completed the royal look. The reception was filled with love, laughter and personal touches from the newlyweds. In lieu of a guest book, family and friends were requested for signed Polaroid snapshots.  Taylor even handmade all the watercolor signs that accompanied the Italian Soda station and place settings.  (Did we mention she also did her own hair and makeup?!) Not for the ordinary, the couple constructed a dessert table for the ages. A tower of multi-colored macaroons, assorted pastries, and five different cakes – including Burnt Sugar, Confetti and Mexican Chocolate.  At the end of the night, the two headed for their Uber getaway as guests sent them off under a tunnel of sparklers.
