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.

Natural Backyard Setting with Bows & Arrows

We are so excited to share a peek at the intimate setup for Abby & Phil from a couple weekends ago. Images captured so beautifully by Charla Storey!! The couple held an 80 person ceremony and reception in their Dallas home. We sourced wood tables from Shag Carpet, metal elio chairs from AFR, fabulous vintage and mid century furniture from Juniper, and all tableware from Big D Party and Posh Couture. The design was all about keeping in flowing and natural; greens were foraged to purpose as backdrop to bride and grooms cakes from La Duni and ceremony backdrop with simple West Elm rug as altar point. We brought in deep navy with our BBJ linen runners and napkins and pulled together a simple smore’s setup using the couple’s already existing fire pit. Custom cocktails provided by Mr. Bartending were a huge hit with guests! And everyone mingled the night away under twinkling café lights by RO Entertainment. And of course who can resist blooms by Bows & Arrows!

Sultry + Stunning and Warwick Melrose Hotel

Reminiscing about this styled shoot from a couple years back. It was so different for me, design wise, more dark and romantic than anything I’d ever done. Love looking back through work and seeing where I pushed myself, made new friends and had tons of fun! Plus my hubby modeled here and he’s quite the eye candy. ;)
