White Sparrow Elopement from Cassie Loree Photography

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

Photos by Cassie Loree Photography

The White Sparrow has the sort of simple elegance that brides dream about from the moment they get engaged! With its all-white aesthetic, simple lines, luxe chandeliers and greenery-filled grounds, the barn and its property are truly something out of a storybook. This elopement styled shoot from Cassie Loree Photography brings that story to life! The charming grounds of the vintage barn were covered in golden light that made this shoot something out of our fall wedding dreams. From the gorgeous dangling geodes at the altar to the mini-bundt and pancake-cake topped dessert bar, this elopement shoot had our hearts skipping beat after beat!

Greenery-Filled Summer Wedding by Jen Rios Weddings

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017

Photos by Haley Rynn Ringo Photography

Denay and David’s June nuptials were a beautiful mix of rustic and industrial, with hints of light orange, summer red and a gorgeous neutral palette! Their reception set against the organic wood backdrop of Mopac Event Center was elegant and highlighted with lush, overflowing natural greenery – one of Denay’s favorite details. The naked two layer cake by Jar Cakery emulated minimalist perfection with its kumquat adornments. From the hand lettered place cards to the bountiful options at the dessert table, Jen Rios Weddings thought of every detail to make this wedding a splendid vision of summer bliss.

Tuscan Sunset Wedding Inspiration by Jen Rios Weddings

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Photos by Charla Storey Photography

We simply adore this Tuscan sunset tabletop design concepted and styled by  Jen Rios Weddings at Aristide – Flower Mound. By embracing the natural elements and choosing a warm color palette, Jen and her team created a simple yet elegant, al fresco feel. The tablescape was set with wooden furniture rentals from Coral Lane, place settings from Posh Couture Rentals and pale peach freeform florals from Moss Floral Design. Throughout the design, Pink Champagne Paper added lovely touches with their calligraphy signage, place cards, menu and invitation suite. Vestals Catering made the most delicious, mouth-watering dishes for this scene, then set to work on creating a one-of-a-kind olive bar for this Italian setting. The cake trio from Loft22 Cakes was definitely a favorite detail as the middle cake looked so unique with a bit of naked cake peeking from the top tier. The bride was a dream in her low-back gown from Lovely Bride and simply glowed with her effortless beauty look by Lip Service Makeup. We are oh so happy that Charla Storey Photography was there to capture all of this beauty and charm. Cheers!

Photos by Stephanie Brazzle Photography

Is there anything more charming than a garden wedding inspired by all things citrus? We absolutely adore this tabletop design by Keestone Events. Perfectly placed at the Dallas Arboretum, this styled shoot has all the charm one could dream of for their wedding day. Outdoing themselves once again, Lush Couture Floral created the prettiest of flowers full of texture, bold blooms and citrus fruit. Posh Couture Rentals provided the china, flatware, linens and stemware that couldn’t suit this table more. Golden Greys worked her magic creating the beautiful calligraphy and watercolor paperie. HoneyLove Cakery has stolen our hearts with this stunning cake design with irregular tiers and topped with orange and lemon slices. WZ Beauty Studio created the model bride’s lovely beauty look, and the gown from Patsy’s Bridal Boutique completed her fresh and effortless bridal style. A huge thanks to Stephanie Brazzle Photography for capturing all of this beauty so perfectly! Cheers!

Photos by Trisha Kay Photography

With a touch of southern charm, Shannon Rose Events turned this industrial location into the loveliest scene. From her soft styling and flawless florals to every personal touch, Shannon Rose Events leaves us speechless with this tabletop design. The clean, white walls and glowing natural light at BRIK Venue proved to be the ideal location for this shoot. Propmaker Luxury Event Rentals brought in many gorgeous pieces, such as the table, side chairs and loveseat. In addition, Beautiful Event Rentals provided the bar piece that nicely displayed the adorable biscuit bar. Stocked with all things to make any Southern gal happy, we adore this spin on a bar. You’ll see more fabulous rentals on the tabletop from Posh Couture Rentals including the acrylic chairs, baby blue linens and classic dinnerware pieces. Felderhoff & Co. dazzled us with her invitation suite and menu perfectly complementing the design. As for the sweet signage and place cards, Sarah Ann Design carried out the loveliness with calligraphy touches. The model bride wore a magnificent gown from De Ma Fille, and Grand Slam Glam completed her ensemble with an absolutely striking beauty look. The beautiful cake from Hopeful Hearth Baking Company is a must see with its soft, hand-painted texture! We are oh-so-thankful that Trisha Kay Photography was there to capture each element. Full of Southern charm and darling details, this is a design after our own hearts. Grab a biscuit, raise your glass of sweet tea, and cheers to this dear design!

When it comes to throwing shade, we prefer our shades to make up the beautiful floral bouquets from our talented North Texas florists! These gorgeous arrangements captured by Tracy Autem Photography practically jumped off the pages of our most recent Brides of North Texas issue. After being given a color scheme, these North Texas florists blew us away with their designs at our shoot at the Howell Family Farm! The neutral-colored dresses from Bella Bridesmaids served as the perfect complementary colors to really make the floral arrangements pop. Grand Slam Glam created fresh faced looks that looked absolutely captivating next to these fresh blooms! Happy Thursday!
