Calvin+Taylor wed at Howell Family Farms

Taylor + Calvin’s rustic wedding was as charming as their love for one another. Designed by Grit+Gold, the ceremony was set outside the barn at Howell Family Farms complete with hay bales, wooden cross constructed by groom and tons of the families antique quilts. The reception was held in the upstairs barn. Guests were greeted with beautiful table-settings under large chandeliers and soft drapery accented by the barn’s rich wood-workings. Tables were adorned with antlers, mercury glass, soft creme and deep red floral to set a winter ranch feel. On the sweetheart table, you could even find an old wooden pistol. Doesn’t get any more Southern than that!

Preppy couple, Lauren & Justin at Hall of State

They don’t live in Texas but when Lauren and Justin decided to tie the knot, they got here as fast as they could. The setting was the magnificent historical Hall of State at Fair Park. The beautiful blushing bride wore a Mori Lee design purchased at Terry Costa in Dallas while her bridesmaids looked beautiful in navy colored dresses from JCrew. The groom and his men wore suits from JCrew and Joseph A Banks with alternating bow ties or neckties, adorned with little sailboats from Vineyard Vines.
If I were to describe this wedding in a few words, it would be a nautical prep romance. From navy striped details, mini sailboats escort cards, and lanterns, a wonderful nautical vibe was created. Yet, a touch of prep and romance with bow ties, blush tone florals, and silver tea set centerpieces. It was personal and sweet with mini pecan pies, the groom’s favorite, and monogrammed cookies as treats for guests. Other details include a custom carved monogram for guest signing, and one very cool vintage Chevy Pickup departure with ribbon wands.
