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

Carly & Javier | The Mason Dallas

Having wedding plans derailed by a pandemic was the last thing on Carly’s mind as she dreamed of her large, ballroom wedding overlooking the Dallas skyline. The plan was to bring all their family together from New York, to Ohio, all the way to El Salvador. Very few were local, so this wedding was BIG deal to the family as getting together was proven to be quite difficult. With a year of planning underway and a date set for March of 2020, the world was changed in the blink of an eye. The bride’s venue was cancelled and travel bans affected almost her entire guest list. Even though there was no Plan C (Covid) at the time, our team quickly went to work. We, first, determined how many people could actually attend so that we could find an appropriate new venue. Our new number was 30. Thirty of the bride and groom’s closest local friends and family. We reserved The Mason, a recently renovated and historic venue in Dallas. The venue itself was inspiring for the day, and lended so much in the way of detail. Setting our new date in August, we then were able to shift our entire team over and “new plan” was in full effect. It was a creative plan to say the least. 🙂 The bride and groom spent the entire day at the old mansion, getting ready, enjoying time with their small group. The idea was to have a really relaxed day.

 

Under a chuppah, made by family friends, they were united and took a moment to sign their ketubah with a few witnesses. After their intimate ceremony, guests sipped on champagne and looked on as the couple had their special dances. A moment NOT to be missed. Following they cut their cake and mingled with guests. The bride and groom didn’t want to fuss with the details of holding a dinner reception. Another reminder of their original wedding plans that had been halted. Instead, we worked with the catering vendor to take the deposit that has been paid and use it towards an in home dinner experience. So when our festivities at the Mason were completed, the small group headed to the private home of the bride & groom for a lovely lowkey night. In times such as these, we are reminded of the beauty in the simple gestures and small gatherings. ❤️

Meredith + Josh | Ashton Depot

This Tuscany inspired wedding is so dear to me. Meredith + Josh, their family and their trust in our team is the epitome of why I started my planning + design business. With her mother and father living in California, she need full-service assistance to pull together her day. Josh proposed in Napa Valley and California was near and dear to them both, so it only made sense to bring that Napa/Old World feel to them in Fort Worth. While most might just see Fort Worth history in the walls of the Ashton Depot, we felt that it’s historic marble floors and towering arched windows could definitely take on a different transformation. So we set to work designing a soft, romantic scene that would tie the two very different places together.

First we started with her ceremony which took place in the terrace of the Ashton. We wanted to emphasize the beautiful, natural greenery that already adorns the space along with a beautiful stone water feature. We kept it natural, free flowing on the floral arch and paired with native grass and greenery planters to enclose the space making it feel like a garden.

And what guest can resist a glass of champagne to greet them on a beautiful Texas Spring day?! Guests sipped while they waiting for the processional to begin.

Moving into the ballroom, we chose pale dusty blue linens and florals heavy in organic greenery, soft creams, white and hints of dusty blush blooms. A draped entrance provided a simple, yet statement entrance.

The father of the bride’s favorite Padron cigars were a must so our team made sure to set a beautiful spread for him and all his guys!

Fine Art in the Fort

Our team was super excited to plan and design a special fine art dinner to welcome Kate Holland, editor of Magnolia Rouge to Fort Worth. We scouted a very cool new venue spot on Race Street called The Post at River East. The venue was once home to Sylvania Station Post Office built in 1946. At some point in its history, the building burned and the walls have patina’d from age. They are simply beautiful and make such a cool California meets Texas vibe for any cool kids looking for something really unique.
