Take a scroll through this dapper Dallas Arboretum engagement session from Jacque Manaugh Photography! Jacque captured many sides of Rory and Martese’s relationship, from playful and laughter-filled to serious and romantic. The trellises and stately columns of the arboretum gardens were the perfect backdrop to showcase their love as the sun set over White Rock Lake in Dallas. Read more below to find out how this special couple met and the sweet way Martese proposed!

How they met and became engaged: “Martese worked for a local non-profit organization here in the Dallas area. Part of his job was to do community outreach and networking. One evening while doing community outreach, Martese met Rory. The two had great conversation and exchanged numbers, that following Sunday they hung out all day and became close. Martese proposed May 22, 2017, during his birthday brunch celebrating his 31st birthday. The brunch was full of family and friends, all of whom Rory and Martese love. The proposal was a complete surprise to Rory. Midway through the brunch, Martese made an announcement about how happy he was that everyone had joined and how important each one of them were. He then played a video on the projector that showcased photos of he and Rory. Throughout the video, Martese described his love for Rory and how he had grown through the love and support from Rory. When the video ended, Martese got down on one knee and simply asked, ‘Will you marry me?’ After the shock wore off, Rory said ‘Yes!'”

With winter’s chill officially setting in, we couldn’t think of a better time to share one of our new favorite styled shoots packed with moody bohemian wedding inspiration set at Monroe Pearson! Captured by the talented Laning Photography, this ultra-romantic shoot styled by the planning team at Weddings by Stardust is the perfect combination of timeless and modern with a stark color palette and ethereal decor elements. Sweeping the tablescape, adorning furniture and crafted into beautifully wild bouquets were decadent florals from Billie Ball & Co., all filled with plenty of greenery and a mix of mauve, plum and crimson blooms. The model bride’s elegant wispy up-do and bold makeup done by Tease to Please Hair and Makeup was the perfect addition to her glam look, and we can’t stop swooning over it all! Be sure to save your favorite images for quick inspo reference later!

From the photographer, Hannah Laning of Laning Photography: “We shot this beautifully moody, bohemian fall styled shoot at the new venue Monroe Pearson, one of the Walters Wedding Estates. Billie Ball & Co. went all out with her fall inspired colors that fit perfectly with the vintage industrial feel of this new venue.”

Going Green 

While florals will always be a show-stopping addition to any wedding, we loved the trend this year of pretty green boxwood and greenery-crawling walls to serve as a photo-worthy backdrop to a some of our favorite weddings. From monogrammed displays to simple background pieces, this trend proved easily adaptable to many types of weddings, making a statement in every style!

European Charm

Who knew it was so easy to create a setting filled with European charm right here in North Texas? We saw tons of international inspiration in many of our favorite real weddings and styled shoots in 2018, from Italian countryside rustic to posh French ballroom. Iron pieces, grand wooden tables, soft pastel hues and antique dinnerware were just a few of the tell-tale decor check marks in creating some of these idyllic settings that we certainly hope continue to flood our feeds in the new year!

Modern Bohemian Dreams

While we’re not stranger to a boho style bride, we loved the ultra-modern touches used in so many of the bohemian style weddings we saw this year! Bright and bold yellow color palettes, geometric shape elements and contemporary furniture pieces were just a few touches that caught our eye to give this classic look a 2018 refresh.

With so many stunning weddings to reflect on since the beginning of the year, we had to take the opportunity to sing praises to all of the unbelievable, often jaw-dropping floral arrangements we saw in real weddings and styled shoots in our year end roundup, taking a look at the best of 2018 wedding floral trends. Though all prominent to the year, we certainly think these trends could all stand the test of time and can’t wait to see how our local wedding florists will incorporate the new ideas in the new year! Scroll on for a few of our 2018 floral favorites and be sure to check out more from all of these fabulous weddings!

The Bold (Pink) and the Beautiful

With the end of 2017 hinting at an increased interest in this decidedly feminine hue, pinks of all shades swept the bridal industry during 2018, especially with floral trends! But perhaps the most coveted range of this shade was the poppy, punchy bright fuchsia pinks, displayed in matching bold, contemporary fashion. If eye-catching was the goal, we’d say this year’s florals took the cake!

Wild and Whimsical

Perfectly suited for something between a rustic and bohemian affair, we fell head over heels for the wild whimsy of the freely overgrown and slightly undone look of floral arrangements that adorned many of our favorite tables this year! Mixing in eucalyptus, berries and tons of greenery, the possibilities were endless with creative opportunity for this type of arrangement!

Adorned Altars 

What’s a better way to share forever promises of love and life together than standing under an altar arranged with blooming beauties? We saw more stunning floral arches this year than we could even count, and we certainly hope this is a trend we’ll be seeing for decades to come!
