How to Fake a Destination Wedding Without Leaving Texas
by Brynlee Handy January 15
This styled shoot held at The Olana is fab, fresh, and French-inspired — everything you need to fake a destination wedding without ever leaving the North Texas area. Planned by Alexa Kay Events, this shoot features two different wedding styles to demonstrate the versatility that comes with a classically elegant venue like The Olana. The model wows in her first look, a long sleeved wedding gown with a lace bodice featuring a deep V. We love the way the first set of stationery from Brown Fox Creative has an elegant and regal theme whereas the second set has more of a vintage, whimsical vibe. In her second look, this model stuns in a simple, halter-neck mermaid dress. Both wedding styles feature plentiful pastel blooms from Alba Dahlia Floral, commanding attention in centerpieces and standalone arrangements alike. Showcasing two different wedding styles, The Lockharts expertly capture this gallery of wedding inspiration that might have you carpe-ing your diem close to home rather than hopping on a plane. Cheers!

From the photographer: “This curated and refined collaboration highlights elegant touches of pastels that created a simplistic and romantic setting. From the dress to the decor, the stationery to the beautiful tableware and florals, it was a complete southern dream mixed with an old world architectural setting. Styled by Alexa Kay Events the pops of blush and pastels throughout the setting gave the editorial a romantic and feminine touch. The beautiful florals, bouquets, centerpieces, and even the accenting floral decor on the cake provided by Rachel from Alba Dahlia Floral was absolutely beautiful. We designed and crafted this French inspired wedding editorial with our romantic chic brides in mind. The couples that love those French touches and want to stay local instead of having a destination wedding.”
