Jenna Cossu and Blake Stromberg’s Glam North Texas Wedding Featuring Something Pretty Floral
SWEET BEGINNINGS: Jenna and Blake met their junior year of high school where they both played basketball. Jenna had always had her eye on Blake as she watched him play. Later that year at a New Year’s Eve party, Jenna and Blake were both out on the patio, and Jenna knew it was her time to impress him. Her favorite song came on, and she jumped on a table to sing and dance. She fell off the table, and Blake caught her! Blake was a gentleman and made sure she got home safely that night, and the next day he asked her out. They’ve been together ever since!
THE SETTING: The ceremony took place at the Four Season’s new space called the Lantana Room. The venue features a wall of windows overlooking a beautiful garden while the other walls are made of stacked brick. Jenna chose this venue because she loved having the ceremony and reception in one location. It was an added bonus that it was a location where their friends and family could stay for the whole weekend. She also loved the fairytale feeling of the venue. The reception was held in the glamorous ballroom that has multiple entrances, which gives it a grand feeling. The walls are lined with sections of mirrored window panels that include dramatic draped curtains.
AISLE STYLE: Jenna felt pure joy, excitement and happiness as she walked down the aisle. The moment she turned the corner with her teary-eyed dad by her side and saw her husband-to-be at the end of the aisle with the biggest smile she’d ever seen, her heart melted. It was the happiest moment of her entire life.
BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS: The bride’s bouquet consisted of large blooms of Sarah Bernhardt pink peonies, different shades of pink ranunculus, white O’Hara and Keira garden roses with a small amount of greenery throughout.
SAVORY SWEETS: The wedding cake was a five-tier round cake covered in white buttercream with a gold fondant ribbon around each layer. Each layer was separated by lush florals that matched the floral cake stand. On the middle layer, Jenna and Blake had their monogram etched on a plaque with gold accents. The flavors of cake were white cake with strawberry filling, and pound cake with Bavarian cream.
