We can’t get enough of the two stunning looks featured in this trendy styled shoot planned by Maxwell and Gray. Showcasing a couple of darling gowns from Lovely Bride, one with a bold ruffle framing an open back and the other a more modest contemporary design, each model represents an achievable bridal style that can inspire anyone heading to the altar. The Schoolhouse’s vintage, historical charm and whitewashed backdrop is the perfect blank slate to let the tablescape and other details shine. Speaking of details – we’re in love with the whimsical cake design with delicate florals that mirror the wispy neutral floral details from Root and Bloom, both on the table and in giant floor arrangements that could flank an altar in the most gorgeous of ways. While most of this scene is white, bright and airy, pops of contrast in the dark wood table and luxe charcoal invitation suite add dimension. Ben Q. Photography captured the movement of the day with a dreamy video, too. What a beautiful scene! Which of these two bridal styles is your favorite?

Our newest issue just hit the shelves and as always, we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to celebrate! To reveal the gorgeous Spring/Summer 2020 issue cover and celebrate all the prettiness from front to back, we hosted a slew of North Texas’s top wedding vendors at Venue Forty|50 and partied the morning away! Joche W. Events styled the event to a T, covering the venue in a sea of fuchsia, plum and blue with bold, jewel-toned floral arrangements on champagne linens and accents in shades of rose. Lawson Rentals made sure the room was functional for guests, creating stations for seating, dining and more with beautiful furniture. Guests dined on fare by Macklin’s Catering, sipped caffeinated concoctions from Nightowl Coffee Cart and delighted in desserts by Dandelion Cheesecakes. In between words from our publishers and a few other special VIPs, DJ Jason Esquire kept the atmosphere lively with his always upbeat style. And of course, the day had to be captured perfectly, and Ben Q. Photography was up for the job!

We are so thrilled to release our first issue of the new decade and we’re incredibly proud of all the content in these pages. We know you’ll love it, too! Pick up a copy here or skim through the digital mag!

Anyone planning a Dallas bachelorette party out there? This one’s for you! Full of bubbly, bright colors and inspiration to boot, this bachelorette bash is everything it seems – So. Much. FUN! Styling the posh event was a breeze thanks to the ever-talented Maxwell + Gray. Dyan Elizabeth Photography didn’t miss a single detail throughout this weekend celebration, capturing it all. To get the party started, JM Glamour worked her magic, giving the girls flawless makeup and flirty hairstyles. An invitation suite from Bethany’s Letter Shop was feminine, while also featuring a groovy, retro print – a nod at the maids’ accommodations. The Statler proved to be the perfect place to party with spacious rooms and the most ideal location for bachelorette fun in the big city. Providing an Insta-worty backdrop, Party with Lushra designed an over-the-top balloon garland, playing on the mod vibes with pops of coral and palm prints. Whimsical, wispy florals filled each space, adding serious luxe vibes to the modern scene, thanks to Vella Nest Floral. Nothing says “fun” like cotton candy and neon signs, so Warehouse Rose Events didn’t hold back! In addition to cotton candy, the bridal party snacked on the most delicious macarons a la Savor Patisserie. See the party unfold real-time in a video by Lorena Burns Photography and Films below. You don’t want to miss Dallas bachelorette soiree!

“I wanted to create something fun and bright for the bachelorette theme while keeping the elegance of The Statler. The pattern on each piece was designed after the pattern on the panels in the entryway was you walk into the hotel. This was something unique and different, and I so loved the process of designing this stationary.” –Bethany’s Letter Shop

“Our hope was to inspire brides and bridesmaids to push the envelope a bit and transform a space, like a boutique hotel suite, and bring it to life even more with details like floral, balloons and creative signage. We wanted an elevated take on the classic bachelorette party, and with an amazing team of vendors believe we were able to bring that to life.” – Maxwell + Gray

“Ballon garlands are the best way to make your bachelorette party Insta-worthy! Get the whole squad to help before the bride arrives, and the best part is that everything fits in a carry-on! Our DIY kits come with everything you need to make your garland look like a pro did it. No experience necessary!” – Party with Lushra

Hosting editorial inspiration for every bride, our Wild at Heart fashion editorial is not to be missed. Each image from the gorgeous gallery by Ben Q Photography is doused in a soft, agrarian haze, giving an entirely new definition to “picture-perfect.” The modern farmhouse at Davis & Grey Farms was the ideal backdrop with its crisp, white walls set amongst the beautiful Texas landscape. Full of natural greenery, sweet colors and texture you can almost feel with your eyes, each floral arrangement from Kate McLeod Studio popped against the wintry grasses. The model bride floated across each scene, donning unique gowns from our favorite local bridal boutiques. Soft, young beauty looks from Tease to Please Hair & Makeup included romantic hairdos and a soft, shimmering palette. To top it off, The True Gem adorned the bride in elegant fine jewelry. Reverent Wedding Films captured this wild love on film, and you’re going to want to see every minute of it! Scroll below to watch the video as well as check out the full gallery!
