Tie the Knot in a Timeless Garden Wedding
by Maria June 29
Timeless, romantic and intimate are just a few words to describe this garden wedding in Dallas, Texas. High school sweethearts, Natalie and Tanner finally got to tie the knot with a summertime soirée at the Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens. The gardens were transformed by French blue tablescapes with acrylic, gold and silver accents and decadent florals by R. Love Floral. Each bouquet and centerpiece was simple and classic with white florals and greenery. Dressed in a strapless gown from Stanley Korshak Bridal Salon with a structured bow on the back, Natalie couldn’t have looked more radiant as she married the love of her life. Stephanie Brazzle Photography captured every moment from the first kiss in front of a floral cross to guests dancing under twinkly lights through her lens in this effortlessly beautiful garden wedding for the bride and groom to have forever.
Tanner and Natalie’s friendship started their freshman year of high school and they started dating their senior year. After going to the same college, graduating and getting engaged on lake Austin, they knew that personal touches from their story needed to be apart of the wedding. Everyone from their officiant to hair stylist and violin player all had life-long relationships with this couple. Tanner has his own leather craft business, Horn Leather Studio, and he designed and made gifts for our entire wedding party – belts for the boys and personalized clutches for the girls. They even paid tribute to their alma mater and last name with University of Texas “hook ’em” foam fingers. This truly was an intimate and timeless celebration. Cheers to the Horns!
