Jeweled Wedding Inspiration by Donnie Brown Weddings and Events

Donnie Brown Weddings and Events went bold and beautiful with this jewel-toned tabletop! The Westin Galleria was the perfect backdrop with their eye-catching floral wall. Beyond set the mood with their rich purple and pink lighting casting a romantic glow. Donnie Brown Wedding and Events crafted a gorgeous centerpiece filled with lush floral, deep hues of pinks and reds, and had stunning strands of orchids flowing from it. On the table, smaller floral arrangements surrounded the floating centerpiece. A fabulous cake from Delicious Cakes completed the scene with fresh blooms. Also on the table, was fine china, stemware, and flatware from Posh Couture Rentals. The china is the exquisite Versace collection and it truly is a stunner. The design also featured lovely table markers, menus, and invitations designed by Paper Planet. The stationery pieces perfectly represent the aesthetic of the tabletop design. The bride looked flawless with hair and makeup by WZ Beauty Studio and her exquisite bridal gown was from Stardust Celebrations. Thanks to the talented Joseph Mark Photography for capturing all the loveliness, and cheers to all the creative gems who brought this design to life!

Dallas Arboretum Engagement Shoot by Courtney Hanson Photography

Photos by Courtney Hanson Photography

While Emily and Heath’s oh-so-sweet engagement shoot at the Dallas Arboretum originally caught our eye when their photographer, Courtney Hanson Photography, sent us their images, it was the couple’s surprising proposal story that truly had us floored.

Emily and Heath met in college, but lost track of each other after graduation. It wasn’t until a year later at Emily’s birthday party that the two reconnected and immediate fireworks ensued. The New Year’s Eve surprise proposal Heath had planned almost didn’t come to fruition thanks to a bad case of the flu for Emily. Heath had gathered all of the couple’s close friends for the celebration, but Emily was sick in bed! Thankfully, Emily rallied for the party, and the two toasted to the New Year as fiancées! The two are in full planning mode for their January wedding in Ft. Worth.

Thanks to Courtney for sharing this lovely couple’s shoot and story. Cheers to the future Mr. and Mrs.!

Dreamy Bohemian Wedding Inspiration by Jen Rios Weddings

This eclectic bohemian-inspired design from Jen Rios Weddings was simply a dream! Sixty Five Hundred was the perfect backdrop for this dream-worthy design filled with soft pastels, eclectic patterns, unique textures and colorful dreamcatchers. The dreamcatchers were used as wall decorations and pretty place card holders at each place setting — such a lively touch! Also at each place setting was lovely china, flatware and glassware from Posh Couture Rentals. Something Pretty Floral added a mixture of gorgeous greenery, pretty pastels, and bold pops of color to the floral arrangements. Custom name cards, stationery and signage was crafted by the talented Cleggraphy Designs. The charming lounge furniture and rug from Gold Vintage Rentals were the perfect addition! They brought in just the right amount of color, pattern and boldness. The accent table featured two perfectly delicious cakes from Jar Cakery. This confection perfection makes our hearts happy and our sweet tooth even happier. All of this loveliness was captured by the incredibly talented Tracy Enoch Photography. Cheers!
