From The Cliff House‘s darling intimate space in south Dallas comes this whimsical mid-century modern wedding inspiration, with so many funky, eye-catching details we just adore! This scene has the perfect mix of bright, cheery colors, like yellow chairs from Coral Lane and an organic, colorful bouquet from Kate McLeod Studio, along with a few dark and moody elements for contrast – mercury glass and candlesticks give the tabletop a boho, vintage vibe. We’re obsessed with the way the loose, fresh florals mimic the pattern on the bride’s gown from Lovely Bride Dallas. From the flowers on the cake, to the darling floral wall holding the place cards, the theme is carried out perfectly! Carrying the whimsical mid-century modern aesthetic beyond the venue’s walls is an intimate lounge setup inviting guests to the vintage airstream outside – such a fun touch! Captured beautifully by Brittany Clark Photography, this wedding inspiration gives us fun ideas perfect for couples who like to think outside the box and embrace a unique style. Cheers!

Specializing in design and styling, Donnie Brown Weddings and Events created a styled shoot flourishing with sophisticated elegance. Hotel Crescent Court provided the perfect space as well as divine catering services, complemented by a classic multi-tiered cake with elaborate gold detailing by Delicious Cakes. The charming tabletop was intricately styled with a variety of black and gold dinnerware from Top Tier Event Rentals + Staffing, modern acrylic candlesticks, subtly patterned linens and beautiful ivory blooms, also from Donnie Brown. Beyond provided enchanting lighting to enhance the tabletops, creating an inviting gleam that emphasized the gold tones, and a golden paper suite by Paper Planet paired with the color scheme. J. May Photography captured all the ornate inspiration beautifully. Finally, as the icing on the cake, the stunning model bride wore a luxurious, form-fitting Galia Lahav Haute Couture gown and jewelry from Stanley Korshak Bridal along with glamorous beauty by Tease to Please Hair & Makeup. You can never go wrong with sophisticated elegance and a classic style!

From the planner, Donnie Brown with Donnie Brown Weddings and Events: “I’ve always thought that a uniquely beautiful color palette for The Crescent is gold and ivory. It really shines there. But it can often get a little too ‘bridal,’ so I included black to make it more sophisticated. I wanted to also include some retro-60s elements along with some contemporary touches and tie them together with classic elegance. The candlelight hued lighting tied the entire scheme together. I love this look for that venue.”

With a garden ballroom setup as bright and elegant as this one, any bride would feel like a modern-day Cinderella! Designed and styled by Engaged Events at the famed Adolphus Hotel, this wedding inspiration shoot featured in our all-new Fall/Winter 2018 Brides of North Texas mag includes a stunning ball gown from Stanley Korshak Bridal – we can’t get enough of that lace neckline – and a gorgeous tablescape flanked with hues of light blue. Photographed by Courtney Hanson Photography, a darling invitation suite and stationery from Illustrated Weddings by Lola Lorena sets the scene, while modern rentals, including oh-so-elegant lucite chiavari chairs, and sophisticated flowers from R. Love Floral complete the garden ballroom aesthetic. We love each and every small detail, from the fine china and linens from Posh Couture Rentals fit for royalty to that incredible cake from Sugar Bee Sweets! Delicious multi-toned tiers topped with a jaw-dropping sugar flower is a sure way to impress any guest. The model bride looked absolutely beautiful in a soft updo and romantic makeup by Brittany Jones Hair & Makeup and topped off the ensemble with a statement-making ring from The True Gem. If you’ve always dreamed of feeling like a princess on your wedding day, try incorporating soft blue tones, elegant greenery and crisp white details for a unforgettable garden ballroom feel!

We are obsessing over this Nature In Bloom styled shoot by Weddings by Stardust! Whimsical colors and darling details complement each other creating a blossomed summer look. Kiss Me for Eternity Photography by Thisbe Grace and Co. captured the essence of the outdoors with the beautiful natural light along with every stunning detail of the vibrant colors. Cooper Hotel Conference Center & Spa provided the perfect space for this backyard-inspired summer styled shoot, with a gorgeous oak tree creating a natural canopy. The lustrous full blooms by Petals Couture make a statement with the suspended piece, tabletop and bouquets. Along with a wide variety of colors, these charming blooms have a unique combination of florals that tie together alluringly. The bright yellow chairs and lavender pillows from Coral Lane correspond delightfully with the florals. Top Tier Event Rentals + Staffing provides the table draped with overflowing lavender linens beneath the floral china settings. The delicate detailing presented in the place cards, invitation suite and calligraphy are created by the talented Cleggraphy Designs. Stardust Celebrations allows the model bride to shine in her elegant embellished gown, while the bridesmaids’ gowns are simple and lovely. Lip Service Makeup styled a simple waved ponytail hairstyle and classy makeup look for the model bride and bridesmaids. It’s hard not to fall for this whimsical, eye-catching shoot!

From the planner, Laura Hendricks of Weddings by Stardust: “Shades of yellow, oranges and peach are some of the most beautiful colors found in floral, so I started there for color inspiration. I think yellow is one of the most understated colors in nature! Following that, I wanted to pair it with a color that didn’t look too ‘varsity’ – yellow and blue/navy/green – which is how I landed on the lavender color. Using the tree on property created the perfect setting to add to the existing beauty of the venue. I love how the yellow pops against the natural background. This was a light, crisp look that was exactly what I was trying to create in an outdoor setting.
