After months of brainstorming, concepting and finally putting the new Spring/Summer 2018 issue to print, we jumped at the chance to celebrate its launch and unveil the finalized magazine happy hour style with the very same vendors who contributed to its pages. We couldn’t possibly bring our magazines to life without the help of local brides and vendors alike and are so excited to continue sharing this new issue with all of our readers!

For our fun happy hour event, Nylo Los Colinas graciously opened its doors and hosted our group in its generous space, including a sweet setup on their rooftop for the perfect place to enjoy the golden light of early evening! Cloud Creative Events did the most marvelous job in setting up the space to feel both welcome and trendy, using furniture and decor pieces from Beautiful Event Rentals and Posh Couture Rentals to create lounge spaces and seating areas to sip and see the new issue! Pieces with clean lines and unfussy shapes were matched with fun accessories like furry throw pillows and end tables with gold twig-like legs. Simple table arrangements focusing on greenery and white florals added a dose of sweetness to the setting, along with greenery garland used as decor throughout the space, all from Everly Alaine Florals. Guests enjoyed tunes spun by DJ Jason Esquire and sipped on wine, champagne and specialty drinks hand-crafted just for our event thanks to HD Liquid Catering! Our team was lucky enough to get glammed up before the big event with beauty looks from WZ Beauty Studio, which made for plenty of photo ops together and with our guests, all expertly captured by Nate and Grace Photography! Of course, we wouldn’t dream of sending everyone home without a tasty treat to savor while pouring over the pages of our new issue, so our friends at Creme de la Creme Cake Company made delicious takeaway favors of their famous chocolate chip cookies. We couldn’t have asked for a better gathering and group to share our excitement with! Cheers to the new issue!

Straight out of our new Spring/Summer 2018 issue, this pretty in peachy-pink editorial feature from DFW wedding planner Silver Lining Events + Co. is giving us major inspiration for a setting that perfectly depicts a contemporary romance wedding! Chock full of classic red, blush and cream colored roses, along with ample greenery and poppy red exotic looking blooms all from Something Pretty Floral, we love the way the Silver Lining team and Dyan Kethley Photography captured the contrasting elements of feminine pretty and stark modernity in this mashup of gorgeous elements! LaneLove Paper Co. expertly created a scene-setting welcome with a blush, mulberry and custom black and white floral print paper suite to-die-for along side a perfectly prepped set of goodies from The Welcome Box. The stunning Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek served as an elegant backdrop with its classic architecture and traditional decor infused with modern touches. For the table setting, gold flatware, ceramics, crystal champagne glasses from Posh Couture Rentals adorned each seat. Nearby acrylic pedestal tabletops and marble bar from Beautiful Event Rentals brought a current vibe to the dignified vignette. The model bride herself stunned in an elegantly simple strapless gown topped with a floor-length lace cape, both from The Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus. Completing her look with high glam yet totally easy hair and makeup, WZ Beauty Studio gave her a swept-back tousled ponytail ‘do and and a neutral smokey eye complemented by a warm, peachy glow. To top off the setting sweetness, HoneyLove Cakery created a three-tier all black and floral-embellished cake for the ultimate modern touch! Check out all of the details from this beautiful shoot below!

From the planner, Elisabeth Landry of Silver Lining Events + Co.: “I wanted the design to reflect the rebirth of classic black and white and evoke feelings of hope and modernism. The blooms were in medium arrangements nestled down the center of the table with petite and feminine arrangements popping through, creating the illusion of a floral runner, with touches of rose, mauve and deep elderberry as the color palate.”

Just as we’ve been craving a bit more sun and outdoor weather comes this gorgeous new editorial from our Spring/Summer 2018 issue chock-full of elegant al fresco wedding inspiration from Cloud Creative Events! With Dove Ridge Vineyard as the backdrop, Rachel Elaine Photography captured the setting in the golden glow of late afternoon. The team brought a touch of moody sophistication through the use of deep jewel tones in everything from the table centerpieces to the plum and merlot hued paper suite from Brown Fox Creative. Matching the crest of the invitations, Flourish Floral Design Studio crafted a dreamy bouquet and similar centerpiece filled with blooms of dusty rose, merlot, plum and ivory. The swoon-worthy table setting was anchored by elements of whimsy mixed with contemporary decor. Beautiful Event Rentals provided plush, sand-colored end chairs with ghost chairs to accompany, along with the large birch colored wood table. Lace-edged chargers were topped with powdery blue ceramic plates, and gold flatware and rimmed glasses all from Posh Couture Rentals brought a touch of vintage elegance to the setting. The soft blue hue was again incorporated into the embellishment of the sleek cake designed by Loft22 Studios. We can just picture the model bride delighting in the beauty of her outdoor wedding, wearing her cold-shoulder lace gown from De Ma Fille with soft, windblown waves tousled by WZ Beauty Studio. We truly can’t get enough of this gorgeous editorial! Enjoy!

From the planner: “For this shoot, I was inspired by deep jewel tones and wanted to capture that richness in the floral design through the use of big, bold-hued blooms and organic, lush arrangements. Mixing modern plates, flatware and calligraphy with lush, organic florals creates a unique and beautiful look for a tabletop.”
