Sarah + Chris | DeGolyer House – Dallas Aboretum


Can a client’s style be your spirit animal?! If so, I think mine would definitely be Sarah. From the moment we met, I knew that our collected wedding vision was completely parallel. I truly enjoyed every minute of our time together and this design for their Dallas Arboretum wedding. It was just so natural and she was open to pushing each and every boundary.

The ceremony took place in the woman’s garden of the Dallas Arboretum where Bows & Arrows hand crafted an altar of birch wood logs, twisted chiffon and loose greenery. Bridesmaids wore stunning gold lace assembles which perfectly complimented the bride’s gown with lace neckline and cap sleeves. Sarah wanted the day and night to feel organic, soft and romantic so we went with bare rustic tables, lush vessel free florals that almost felt to be growing from the tables. We kept the design clean and not overly busy so that the Degolyer House really shined as the showcase. The night was all about family style dining, fun with friends and enjoying their precious commitment. We are so honored and humbled to have been a part of Sarah and Chris’ Dallas Arboretum wedding.

Amanda wed a couple weeks ago at the Milestone in Aubrey with a fabulous team of talent. Her photographer was the lovely Anna Smith, this lovely bouquet by Branching Out, makeup by Wendy Zerrudo, venue, the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek and lovely gown from Amsale. Ahh I cannot wait to share their beautiful day!! Enjoy a beautiful weekend friends!

Dream it. Draw it. Design it.

We were given the task of creating a styled concept from one object in this recently released Fall/Winter issue of The Brides of North Texas. Our one object, the gold Oro table from AFR Rentals. 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!

A modern garden setting at Aristide Event Center

Can I just say how much I love this team! Inspired by all that is garden, I wanted to bring together a modern approach at a garden styled setting. I love the clean, crisp look of slate gray furniture paired with wild foliage and simple white/silver dishware.  We knocked it out of the park with the vibrant, rich colors and soft hand painted details in the cake and invitation suite.
