For a more fashion-forward take on a classic outdoor bloom-filled wedding, we’re loving this editorial from our Spring/Summer 2018 issue packed with modern garden wedding inspiration from Katie Frost Weddings! With the white washed wood backdrop of Chapel Creek Ranch as the setting for this chic shoot, Nate and Grace Photography captured the gorgeous model couple amidst fresh blooms, a unique table setting and in front of a unique starburst altar we’re still swooning over! A paper suite from Cleggraphy Designs introduced the unique color scheme of the staged celebration. Bright magenta, blush and ivory blooms popped against leafy greenery in the model bride’s bouquet and in table arrangements created by Flourish Floral Design Studio. The model bride stunned with her bouquet, wearing a sweet lace and tulle gown from De Ma Fille paired with a fresh, warm beauty look of neutral colors and a loosely pulled back up-do done by Grand Slam Glam. A gorgeous table setting brought all of the fun, modern elements together all perfectly displayed on the long farm table and in the accompanying lounge area, featuring a greenery-embellished wall and dusty rose hued velvet chairs from Coral Lane. Inky black elements brought a bold, modern look to the table setting with black plates and linens from Top Tier Event Rentals and adorable personal sized cakes from C. Marie’s Sweets used in lieu of a place card. Sips by HD Liquid Catering featured fresh produce to add to the garden-like feel and make for a tasty counterpart to the cakes. Enjoy!

From the planner, Katie Frost of Katie Frost Weddings: “The inspiration behind this shoot was to find practical ways to bring in the color black. I wanted to bring a softer tone to the bold color and pairing with one of the hottest colors only made sense! We incorporated a garden inspiration with black and blush spread throughout the entire set up.”

While the window of time for a cold weather wedding might be small here in North Texas, we love the idea of a cool day’s affair, like this styled shoot packed with cozy winter wedding inspiration from A Stylish Soiree! Shot by Tyler + Lindsey, the team used the limestone brick backdrop of The Laurel‘s outdoor mantle as the center of the shoot, building a welcoming lounge area around it for guests to enjoy. Beautiful Event Rentals provided pieces for the luxe seating area like the stark navy blue tufted velvet couch, plush pillows and a traditional red plaid blanket to add some warmth and coziness to the spot. Near the lounge, a lucite bar from Top Tier Event Rentals served as the perfect drop-by spot for guests to pick their sip choice of custom-crafted hot chocolate or cider made by HD Liquid Catering. Blooms in shades of merlot, poppy red and touches of peach from Petals Couture filled the bar and lined the mantle to add a bit of wintery festiveness to the setting. We love how every detail of this styled shoot, including the red floral paper suite from Felderhoff & Co. perfectly coincided with the next to create the perfect seasonal look! Cheers!

From the planners: “Here in Texas, we don’t often get to experience a snowy wedding… but that doesn’t mean that we can’t create our own winter wonderland! Our team was inspired by the coziness of an intimate fireside gathering, complete with a hot chocolate bar and styled lounge. Deep merlot and navy hues along with rich velvet textures set the tone for our welcoming lounge area, accented by fur pillows and comfortable blankets. The hot chocolate and wassail bar invite guests to warm with a hot drink, garnished with their favorite seasonal toppings. Acrylic accents and creative floral displays add a sophisticated touch.”

From the planner: “I was inspired by a retro tropic style highlighting black and white, tropical greenery and pops of gold accent. The style is clean and modern, with an old school twist. I created an inviting space to dine and sip cocktails with our sleek tablescape design and cocktail style lounge area, complete with craft cocktails! By keeping the color palette neutral, we maintained a sleek and minimal design with a focus on mixing patterns and textures.”
