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. ❤️

Cara + Derek | Marie Gabrielle

Cara & Derek are a fun-loving, vibrant couple who are always on the go!  These two cuties share an affinity for their fur babies (as evidenced in their adorable day of photos with their precious pups), and are Dallasites through and though.  Their ceremony took place at  Highland Park Presbyterian Church, a timelessly classic grand cathedral built in 1928.  Florals were lush, in pastel blush and peach, with beautiful bright peonies, paired exquisitely with delicate greenery accents.  Maids wore chiffon gowns of grey from Bella Bridesmaids, while the bride wore a stunning strapless gown and custom veil from Patsy’s Bridal.  Classic elegance at its best, Cara and Derek’s reception took place at Marie Gabrielle, a garden-like oasis in the heart of downtown Dallas.  Guests dined under the trees, casually mingling over romantic candlelight. While the wedding party sat at a sprawling head table complete with a floating chandelier overhead, and an opulence of dazzling blooms and greenery.  In keeping with our overall classic design, the cake was nothing short of a grand affair.  This beautiful frosted 4 tier cake from Frosted Art Bakery was adorned with fresh floral, and was a perfect representation of this whimsical garden celebration.  From beginning to end, every detail of Cara and Derek’s wedding was a thoughtful expression of their genuine love.
