A Holiday Party with Poo-Pourri

Two of my favorite things collided in the production of this event, one… meeting the amazing people behind Poo-Pourri  (if you don’t know, now you know) and getting to work within the walls of a building that was once St. John’s Methodist Church built in 1911. The space is simply inspiring! Joining a team of incredible vendors, we coordinated the holiday event for the corporate folks of Poo-Pourri complete with aerial show, casino tables, photo booth and fun details all around.

Sarah + Jeremy’s romantic Fort Worth wedding

They say it’s never a good idea to date a roommate but that didn’t stop Sarah & Jeremy from testing the water. After meeting one night while out for drinks with friends, Jeremy, who was new to the area, mentioned he was looking for a place to live. As luck would have it, Sarah was in the market for another roommate and soon enough, the new friends and their sweet dogs were roomies. Two months into their new living situation they began dating and a short year later, they were engaged!

The ceremony was held at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and the couple’s first-look photos took place in the Cactus Garden. Sarah looked like a princess complete with tulle skirt and a floral crown of ranunculus, ferns and sea holly placed perfectly over her romantic fishtail braid. Sarah held a dreamy bouquet filled with white spirea, clematis and snapdragons with pale pink roses, berry scabiosas and even an artichoke.

After saying their vows in the Fuller Garden, the party headed over to 809 at Vickery where the floral theme continued. Golden candlesticks and chargers were accented with floral table numbers and place settings. Sweet buds created a whimsical backdrop for the dessert table holding some of the couple’s favorites like German Chocolate and Confetti Cake. Guests not only sipped on local Texas brews, but also enjoyed a few Kansas originals as an ode to Jeremy’s Midwestern roots. The adorable blue and white Photo Wagon and amazing band kept family and friends laughing throughout the evening.

Guests bid the newlyweds adieu in an entanglement of streamers before they headed off to their Jamaican honeymoon.

Katie & David renew their “I Do’s”

Excited to share this beautiful renewal! Katie and David married 10 years ago. Everything was perfect! Lots of time went into the details and all were in place. The day went off without a hitch. Anyone would have said it was complete perfection. Well that was until weeks and months, even years later when the couple found themselves in a very ugly situation with their contracted photographer. You see he never produced their images. YEs! You heard me right! NEVER. A couple’s worst nightmare come true. Turns out the reputable and known photographer just lost it, burned dozens of couples and took off with their money and yes… images. Not a shred of memory was given to them. Nothing!

So fast forward 10 years. Katie, an industry friend and owner of Two Blue Shoes Photography came to us and wanted the best to pull off her renewal. Well, maybe I am a bit biased but we pulled together some of the most talented people in the biz to pull off this very special visit down memory lane. This time we’d make sure everything was captured for these two.

Thanks to an amazing team!! Nine Photography | R Love Floral | Posh Couture Rentals | Sugar Bee Sweets | Harts & Quills | Gold Dust Vintage Lip Service (Makeup) and Renn Traylor (Hair) | Splendor Films | The Orchard| and of course styling, planning and design my Grit + Gold
