One detail that we are seeing more and more of these days is COLOR...a bountiful abundance of gorgeous color. And that makes our blogger hearts ever so happy. So you can imagine our excitement when we spied this Dallas wedding photographed by the lovely Kate Osborne. It is packing a mega punch of bright hues all wrapped up in a really beautiful backyard wedding. Plus, this fete scored bonus points on our adorable scale with the bride's uber stylish bangs and the cutest ballet flats. Yep, this is one heck of a pretty wedding and you can see the whole shebang in the gallery.
When Mike asked me to marry him on June 25th, it was no surprise I said yes. Little did mike know, I had already ordered my dress back in April. We were married in the Dallas LDS temple and were lucky to be married by my granddad's best friend/partner in crime. Our reception was held at the Surrey House, a home in the historic district of downtown McKinney, TX, the town where I was born and raised. It was a very simple celebration- no veil, no wedding cake, no wedding party, no dancing and no bouquet toss. We really wanted our personal touch to be seen in all the details. We decided to do a taco bar and a desert table (inspired by Amy Atlas), which included our favorite salted pear and caramel macaroons from The Little Oven Bakery. We did several diy projects to give the reception a "homegrown" feel. I made and sewed the fabric flower garland while on a road trip. I also made the fabric pom poms, with the help of my lovely sisters. The wood slices on the tables were cut from a tree on our farm. I started collecting vintage milk glass and old glass bottles for the flowers. Mike and I planted all the succulents, and the rest of the flowers were done by a close family friend, Sami Hansen. She did a fabulous job! My jaw dropped when I saw my bouquet. When I ask Mike what his favorite part of our wedding was he can never give me just one answer, he starts rambling about practically every detail. It was truly the happiest day of our lives!
