Beauty & the Brik | A Styled Project |

When this team hears about a new venue on the brink of opening, what do we do?? We pull a fab team together and christen the place. The BRIK, an old textile mill with raw wood floors, shabby white brick walls and huge windows lends the perfect formula to create the most romantic of settings. I wanted to style several food displays in the shoot to really give the images living and breathing qualities rather than just perfectly staged displays. I wanted it to feel as though each image was interactive with the audience. Something that the person looking at it would relate to. Possibly the reminiscence of a grandmother or watching mom prepare a table at home. Then taking those emotions and infusing them into a bride’s most important day.

Styled Editorial | Rosewood Mansion

Inspired by the artistic traditions of Europe, we took our vibrant palette of deep jewel tones, terra cotta and heavy greenery to execute a lush and moody rendering. The Rosewood Mansion with its 16th century Renaissance influence created the perfect backdrop for our design. Our tabletop consisted of wood and steel constructed tables paired with upholstered chairs from AFR. All tabletop décor was kept clean and simple so not to compete with our terracotta stucco backdrop and ornate floral table runner. We used Versace dinnerware from POSH along with Pure stemware and beautiful Cutipol Rondo gold flatware. The floral runner by Lush Couture Floral was a dream! Full of color, movement and depth the runner poured from the mouth of a terra cotta tilting pot and cascaded down to the ground. Our invite suite was beautiful executed by Clara Doyle. With torn linen paper edging, the suite played nicely into our natural feel and Mediterranean influence as well as paired beautifully with the jewels of Shapiro DiamondsJar Cakery perfectly captured the pattern from the pillows on our tabletop and we kept the cake floral minimal with a simple swoop of bougainvillea. The bar was so much fun to style. I love the natural, lived in quality of a good mixed cocktail. We went for a Mint and Walnut Julep with beautiful details such as fresh mint, walnuts, Italian Port Wine, figs and a touch of Belgium linens. Our beautiful model was dolled up by Wendy Zerrudo with a soft updo and later was dropped for romantic waves. Our dresses from Winnie Couture were the sight of sophistication and romance with soft detailing in lace cap sleeves, intricate backing and soft silhouette lines.

Sarah + Chris | DeGolyer House – Dallas Aboretum

Can a client’s style be your spirit animal?! If so, I think mine would definitely be Sarah. From the moment we met, I knew that our collected wedding vision was completely parallel. I truly enjoyed every minute of our time together and this design for their Dallas Arboretum wedding. It was just so natural and she was open to pushing each and every boundary.

The ceremony took place in the woman’s garden of the Dallas Arboretum where Bows & Arrows hand crafted an altar of birch wood logs, twisted chiffon and loose greenery. Bridesmaids wore stunning gold lace assembles which perfectly complimented the bride’s gown with lace neckline and cap sleeves. Sarah wanted the day and night to feel organic, soft and romantic so we went with bare rustic tables, lush vessel free florals that almost felt to be growing from the tables. We kept the design clean and not overly busy so that the Degolyer House really shined as the showcase. The night was all about family style dining, fun with friends and enjoying their precious commitment. We are so honored and humbled to have been a part of Sarah and Chris’ Dallas Arboretum wedding.
