For a setting as light and airy as The French Farmhouse Venue, we’ve never seen it look moodier than in this intimate garden wedding inspiration, filled with lush and artful florals that look meant to be alongside the organic elegance of each styled scene. It’s all in the details, and intricate tabletop décor and more from POSH Couture Rentals prepare this indoor reception setting for royalty, all the way down to the dramatic throne seating. Keeping with this theme, our bride modeled a look that totally says elevated drama styled by artists at The Styling Stewardess with a bronzey eye, romantic low updo, and the perfect bridal lip shade. Modern accents are scattered throughout yet there’s something so timeless still about this intimate garden wedding inspiration. Read on for a note from the photographer about this lush styled shoot and the vision behind its design. Cheers!

Find the Perfect Wedding Workout to Reach Your Fitness Goals

There’s nothing like the pressure of an upcoming event to put our image at front of mind – especially one where you are front and center in front of all your friends and fam… Eee! While the high of being the main attraction on the wedding day can feel pretty darn good on the ego, we’re prone to getting a bit jittery when all eyes are on us. As if the mental stress of wedding planning wasn’t enough to get me in the gym for some serious self care, knowing that I’m working toward looking, and ultimately feeling, my best will! Not sure what workout is best for your fitness goals? Whether you’re looking for a quick tone-up, total transformation or a stress reliever, we’re sharing our guide to finding the perfect wedding workout for you – follow the flow chart below!

Find the Perfect Wedding Workout to Reach Your Fitness Goals

 

Yoga

Yoga is a fantastic workout to not only help you tone up (seriously, it’s amazing!), but can truly alleviate additional stress. Staying sane during the wedding process is crucial, and we’re big fans of getting our “zen” time in to truly focus on our internal selves. Not as into pose-holding and spiritual connection? Opt for a fast paced yoga cardio class instead!

Barre

If you chat with just about any Brides of North Texas team member, they’ll rave about their love of barre class. This fun studio class is a pilates-ballet combo that focuses on small movements to tone, and the group setting gives the peer pressure we need to finish each rep. I promise you, every class at Pure Barre Coppell is different, and the studio offers three different class styles regularly (classic, foundations, reform and empower) so you can mix it up.

Pilates

Pilates is basically the GOAT of wedding workouts. You engage nearly every muscle in your body during a class, and flexibility is just as much a focus as strength, making for crazy well-rounded workouts. BEYOND Pilates Frisco has six different classes to choose from PLUS offers a 3-month “whip-up” or 9-month total body “transformation” specifically for brides.

Personal Training

Personal training may be for you if 1) you are looking to tone specific areas on your body, 2) you have no idea where to start, or 3) you like more one-on-one direction. Bells and Barbells Wedding Fitness specifically works with bride and grooms who are sweating for the wedding, and are experts at creating a customized plan with your wedding day as the goal.

Running

Free. Can be done anywhere. You can bring your dog. Need we say more?

Set in the grand halls of The Adolphus Hotel, this Victorian chic wedding inspiration is a breath of fresh air and so romantic it hurts. Lavish, high fashion details are all around in editorial weddingscapes characterized by French blue and seafoam tones that contrast with rich red and striking burgundy blooms. This was absolutely a moment for haute bridal couture with our model in a high-neck allover lace gown giving us major Victorian vibes and her timeless hair and makeup go along flawlessly. Fresh berries and halved pomegranates grace tables alongside modern monochrome faux pomegranates for a unique, romance-infused reception style. Fine china and King Louis chairs are among the dreamy décor provided by Posh Couture Rentals among others to style the stunning scenes in this Victorian chic wedding inspiration. Draped velvet linens give carte blanche for extra drama when creating a truly breathtaking backdrop for these bridal portraits captured in an avant-garde gallery by Marissa Merritt Photography so you can see it all down below. Cheers!

From the photographer, Marissa Merritt Photography: “Boasting some of the most iconic ballrooms in Dallas, The Adolphus is a luxury hotel that is a top choice for elevated weddings. It’s no surprise, then, that the masterminds behind this styled shoot chose their light-filled ballroom for the occasion. Photographer Marissa Merritt artfully captured all the colorful, wintry details on both film and digital. The shoot was designed and styled by the ladies of Develope Academy – Jennefer Wilson, Charla Storey and Maxine Owens. Maxine’s incredible floral and table design was unexpected, bold, and delicate. The stately invitation suite was designed by Southern Fried Paper. Francesca Massey modeled a stunning mock neck lace gown from a&be bridal shop in Dallas. Her beauty look was created by hair and makeup artist Brittany Jones who featured a soft eye and lip color. Rentals from Bella Acento and Posh Couture Rentals were brought in, and linen from BBJ Linen to create the luxe canvas on which Maxine’s tablescape brought a cold winter day to life.”

Nothing will bring a smile to your face quite like this cheery mansion wedding inspiration in a punchy spring palette. Preppy and bright in design, this styled shoot was planned and coordinated by MK Event Boutique in scenes around the stately Bingham House. It made the perfect setting since its modern touches still allow for a timeless romanticism about the place. Floral-adorned invitations and pretty paperie designed by MK Event Boutique as well keep with the cheery ceremony theme and would certainly excite us if found in our mailbox! This bride looks radiant modeling a beaded lace off-the-shoulder gown and veil from Bridal Boutique and styled by the artists at Brite Beauty with a hair and makeup look that is everything chic, modern, and clean. As she poses in perfectly set scenes around Bingham House, we can’t help but fall for the surrounding antique gold décor and accenting crystal and fine china provided by Lawson Event Rentals that add a timeless touch to every weddingscape. To finish the affair out on a sweet note, Butterfly Cakery created a textured, three-tiered cake design on a vintage-inspired cake stand that ties right into this cheery mansion wedding inspiration. Thankfully some real camera pros were on-site to document this day, so scroll on to see it captured in stunning, still shots from The Crakes as well as a romantic highlight film by Alex Adkins Creative down below. Cheers!
