A Favorite Styled Shoot
Laura says: “My favorite details from this shoot were the yellows, purples and peachy-orange colors that saturated the design. This was such a unique color combination but pulling together florals, linen and rentals was seamless.” For Laura, the main objective she strives for with each couple is to make the planning process easy and fun. “I like to operate in a very high-touch manner so everyone feels very taken care of on that day,” Laura says.
Laura offers these words of wisdom for any bride: “Find a planner who you feel comfortable working with and you trust will execute your vision. Don’t feel like you have to rush to make all the decisions about the little things at once, you will get overwhelmed. A good planner will help you make decisions and let them handle the small things so you can enjoy the overall process – it should be FUN! You are planning the biggest party of your life, after all!”

“This bride came to me and wanted a totally glamorous affair with a modern side of mixed metals. The Adolphus answered her ballroom needs with the beautiful Grand Ballroom as her ceremony and reception space. We then looked for as many ways as we could to mix gold, silver and acrylic throughout the reception. My favorite detail was the head table — twenty four feet of white and ivory florals with crystal candelabras running down on top of an ivory rosette linen. We couldn’t decide between an all gold or acrylic charger plate, so we decided to use both for a really unique look. The silver dinner menus were tucked into an ivory napkin with beautiful gold foil pressed into the paper. This timeless look was about as traditional and glamorous as you can get in Dallas!” Laura shares.
If you ask Laura her favorite aesthetic when it comes to weddings, this particular day fits the bill perfectly: “My favorite style to design is a traditional, classic, black-tie affair. While each couple’s wedding design should fit the personality of the event, I just love the glam that a ballroom wedding brings. Not all weddings are a formal affair, but a grand celebration honoring the couple and their new life together is something guests do not forget.”
