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!

Bohemian Styled Bridals in Grapevine Texas

Let me start by saying I love my Texas. The terrain is just overwhelmingly breathtaking at times. We wanted to show off a bit of mountainscape, yes Texas has mountains just north of Dallas.Words from the designer:
I took some of my favorite elements and just mixed them all together. Organic gathered floral with bits of market style arrangements, beautiful china settings, great vintage trunks, tons of brass and a hodgepodge of textured pillows and patterned blankets. All together gave a perfect natural yet bohemian setting. And the location… be still my heart. Look at the beauty of those rocks paired with the serenity of the still water. The shoot was just a POP of the right color, fantastic natural inspired stationary and finished off with a beautiful croquembouche cake. Each detail was pulled from the inspiration from our earth around us, whether a cliff, rock or blade of wild foliage, all is awe-inspiring.
