Daniella + Geordie | Ritz Carlton Las Colinas

Ringing in the New Year with style and grace for this Ritz Carlton Dallas wedding! We are excited to share Daniella & Geordie’s Greek, NYE wedding at the Ritz Carlton Las Colinas. The newly renovated ballroom is gorgeous and we were honored to be one of the first teams to execute such a stunning design. Our inspiration was moody, romantic lighting paired with textures like velvet, heavy foliage and shimmering textiles. A clean and crisp winter palette of green, gold and black was the theme of the day/night. This Ritz Carlton Dallas wedding is too die for! <3

Summertime brunch’n with The Brides of North Texas

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.
