We’re thrilled to introduce Jade Batangan of Events by Jade to you today. North Texas brides, you’ll love her Southern-infused, romantic designs and the planning expertise she brings to the table! Jade offers planning and styling services throughout DFW, creating unique and memorable events by combining her old-fashioned values, a passion for planning the perfect party and of course, a love for people. Once upon a time, Jade worked for a Fortune 100 company, honing her management and networking skills for several years – skills she now uses to plan couples’ dream weddings! She believes the magic is in the details and that hiring a wedding planner is one of the best investments a couple can make.

“Hiring a wedding planner early on is incredibly crucial! I can help you do more than just design. I hone in on your vision, budget plan and recommend some great vendors!” Jade explains. “I am passionate about the bride and groom and their vision. I want to get to know the couple and hear their love story from the beginning. I want to bring the couple into their wedding with details, paper products, flowers, etc. I also like to challenge myself to think outside the box. My number one goal is to create their vision but also bring other ideas to the table so they can see all the potential. It all boils down to valuing relationships with my brides and grooms and wanting to create something that is unforgettable.”

As for the look Jade prefers? “My aesthetic is found in the details – anything colorful and all things pretty!” Scroll through the photos below to see Jade’s work come to life via a beautiful citrus-and-sparkle-infused styled shoot as well as an al-fresco Southern wedding.

A Favorite Styled Shoot

“It was a beautiful day, fantastic team of vendors and seamless timeline ― a flawless styled shoot! This shoot had a light and airy color palette that we expanded with a touch of moody mauves and pops of classic pink. I couldn’t pick a favorite detail as I loved everything: the honey whiskey drinks, colorful popsicles, lavish invitations, exquisite lounge, beautiful model and the tablescape overlooking the vineyard at sunset.”

We love how Jade balances brighter colors with more muted tones for a sophisticated yet fresh vibe. Jade is sure to pay attention to wedding trends, while not being trendy. “There are so many new things in the industry that I am loving right now! I love that florals are making a come back in more than bouquets. Don’t get me wrong, I love the simplicity of using just greenery, but my heart skips a beat when I see blooms incorporated in unique areas. I have found myself designing florals EVERYWHERE – in front of cake tables, hanging from the ceiling and creating a large altarpiece. It always amazes me how florals can breathe life into your wedding day! I am also looking forward to the use of color. If you know anything about me, it’s that I love color. I cannot wait to see where color can take it up a notch in 2019.”

“This wedding was so much fun to plan! The couple’s story and how we incorporated it into the details is what keeps it at the top of my list! The groom proposed on a plantation farm in South Carolina so we incorporated pineapples throughout the whole wedding. As a wedding planner, incorporating all the personal touches really set this wedding apart!”

Between the pineapple escort cards and a classic monogram taking center stage, Events by Jade knocked this Southern soirée out of the park! To inquire with Jade about helping make your wedding dreams come true, head over to her Brides of North Texas vendor profile!

We really could not be more obsessed with this fun and flirty take on a stately mansion-inspired look! Maxwell + Gray pioneered a unique vision for this fine art fête inspired design, incorporating a bohemian style into the elegant and polished Rosewood Mansion on Turtle CreekR. Love Floral provided stunning blooms, including a breathtaking suspended arrangement of pampas grass and blush roses that gives the scene a more relaxed, organic feel. Just below sits a picture-perfect tabletop design courtesy of Top Tier Event Rentals + Staffing and Beautiful Event Rentals. Sugar Bee Sweets Bakery created a brushstroke cake so exquisite it’s almost too pretty to eat, while LaneLove Paper Co. crafted subtly chic invites featuring beautiful calligraphy and hints of pink to match the theme of the day. Our bohemian bride wowed in a V-neck A-line gown from a&bé bridal shop and flawless makeup from Etoilly Artistry, captured by Megan Kay Photography.

From the planner, Stacy Hillstead of Maxwell + Gray: “Our vision behind this shoot was to create an elegant mansion-inspired look but to push the envelope with it – to think outside the box through use of a bolder (almost bohemian) color palette, adding textures and playfulness in both the florals, tabletop, print and gown selections. We wanted to showcase the ability to create an elevated, romantic and yes, fine-art look, while allowing it to also feel approachable, playful and eclectic for all seasons.”

Floral Filled Tuscan Inspired Wedding at D’Vine Grace Vineyard

For a touch of European charm mixed with the vast backdrop of a Texas landscape, we’re taking tons of notes from this styled shoot made to mimic a glorious floral filled Tuscan inspired wedding with Luxe Petals. The bloom team experts brought the decadence to D’Vine Grace Vineyard, starting with a larger than life greenery and rose covered altar piece, and extending into everything from teeny stair-lining arrangements to eye-catching table displays featuring furniture from Belle Decor, to a lush bouquet filled with shades of cranberry, peach and plum. Gorgeous stationery from Ladybird Paper Co. help set the scene, while the warm, earthy color palettes reminiscent of the Tuscan countryside were met with soft blues and delicate prints to evoke the elegance of the region, bringing the charm to life! The model bride’s illusion neckline, lace appliqué gown from Lovely Bride was the perfect fit for the understated elegance and nod to bohemia channeled through the space. Her bridesmaid accompanied wearing a draped olive green gown from Bella Bridesmaids. Both girls had hair and makeup styled by Ashley Drew Artistry, the bride wearing her hair in softly styled curls and emphasis on the eyes with a full lash look. Her bridesmaid bestie looked just as stunning with a loose half-up style, the perfect finishing touch to complement her dress! Naturally, one of our favorite details was the mega sparkle effect from the gorgeous diamond rings from The True Gem – obviously any bride’s best accessory! We can’t get enough of this breathtaking scene!

With a touch of European flair and tons of whimsical romance, we’re obsessing over this French ethereal ballroom wedding inspiration from Shannon Rose Events, her talented team and a slew of other visionary vendors! Set in one of the spectacular ballrooms of The Adolphus Hotel, a muted color palette of powdery blue, soft grey, dusty rose and buttercream made for a fairytale-like scene, all captured by AR Photography. Towering blooms of garden roses and orchids from Dr. Delphinium Designs & Events served as eye-catching centerpieces, bouquets and delicate embellishments on the three-tier cake from Loft22 Cakes. At the table, mixed metal and glassware provided by Posh Couture Rentals added a modern touch to the setting with simple name cards and menus from Brown Fox Creative to top off each place setting. Of course, we can’t help but marvel over the model bride’s soft and easy glam look, in a lace bodice gown from Lovely Bride with an updo and dewey makeup by Brittany Jones Beauty. We’ll be swooning over this wedding scene forever!

From the planner, Shannon Ducker of Shannon Rose Events: “I was inspired by The Adolphus Ballroom itself. Its clean walls, tall mirrors and abundance of light make it the perfect ballroom setting for any wedding. It was important to us that we always create unique events that also have a traditional and timeless overall feel and look. As a result, I choose a dusty purple and grey color scheme that mixed copper and silver metallics to give a modern edge, while the florals and the room itself felt classic and elegant. This allowed us to create a setting that could not only be seen at your typical ballroom wedding, but also have an ethereal and romantic element to it.”

An effortless, timeless and classic style along with extreme attention to detail are what DFW wedding planners Engaged Events consider to set their company apart. We’re excited for you to meet Whitney Bailey, certified wedding planner and owner of Engaged Events. Whitney and her team love nothing more than turning blank spaces into brides’ dream venues, handling all the details and logistics and thinking outside the box to make dream days come true!

Whitney says, “What sets us apart from other planners is not only our experience and knowledge of the wedding industry, but also our extreme attention to detail throughout the entire planning process.” Take a look at some of those very details below, as seen in a styled shoot and real wedding planned by Engaged Events!

A Favorite Styled Shoot

“Our favorite styled shoot was the Garden Ballroom Editorial at The Adolphus Hotel. One of our favorite details from this editorial was the combination of traditional floral mixed with an elevated garden arrangement. We love when designs are unexpected and we felt R. Love Floral saw our vision and delivered perfectly!” Whitney says. As seen in the invitation suite above, Whitney and the Engaged Events gals love a good custom monogram. “One of our favorite wedding trends is creating a custom monogram and incorporating it throughout the entire wedding,” Whitney says.

As for words of wisdom, Whitney always recommends sitting down with your fiancé fairly soon after the engagement to go over the big stuff. “One of the first things we recommend you do as a newly engaged couple is discuss your budget and priorities for your big day!”

“Haley and Hunter’s wedding was one of our favorite weddings in 2018. Not only did we have a fantastic vendor team to work with, but every single detail was thought out prior to the wedding day. My favorite details were the flat lays we styled in their hotel room. We had so much fun styling Haley’s shoes, invitation suite and a few heirloom details that were passed down to the bride,” Whitney shares.

Although timeless is Whitney’s go-to, she’s not afraid to mix it up and help each couple achieve the exact look they love. “I consider myself to have a classic and timeless style, but I’m also not afraid of making a statement with colors, patterns or specific trends!”
