Peach + Patina Styled Shoot at Hickory Street Annex

Happy to share these beautiful images by Charla Storey of a recent styled shoot we dreamed up for the Fall/Winter Issue of 2015 of Brides of North Texas. Furniture from Suite 206, tabletop items from Posh Couture, Paper-Bar Menu-Calligraphy by Clara Doyle, Floral by Something Pretty Floral, Cakes by Crème de la Crème, Dress from De Ma Fille, Hair and Makeup by Brittany Jones.

Keeping this design clean and crisp, we pulled soft peach and coral tones with patina pops. Enjoy!

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.

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.

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!
