From the Bride…My wedding day was dreamy and calm. I know ‘calm’ seems like a strange choice, but, after ten months of organizing and crafting, there wasn’t much left to worry about. As exciting as all the planning and prep was for the big day, when it arrived, I just wanted to get married and celebrate with my friends and family! Luckily, the weather was beautiful that day and that’s exactly what we were able to do. We had a quick ceremony out by the lake, officiated by my dad, then we went inside for food, drinks and lots of dancing!

My husband and I love running around White Rock Lake. We trained for our first half-marathon at White Rock, so the whole trail was inspiring for a wedding. Our venue in particular, The Filter Building, had the perfect 1920s style and lake views I was looking for. Once we got engaged I was prepared to schedule everything around The Filter Building’s availability.

My dress had a unique vintage vibe that I thought would stand out against the industrial backdrop. I’d been stalking some Tadashi Shoji styles online and sure enough, BHLDN added my favorite pick to their latest line of wedding dresses. I was obsessed. The details were lovely and the price was right. My earrings were borrowed from my mother, who shares my love of yellow gold.

Spring also meant all my favorite florals would be in season, including a blueish teal flower called Sea Holly. My florist made that recommendation very early on and they were stunning! I ordered floral pieces for every table, the bar, the cake, my head and our wedding arch and I don’t regret it. Flowers just make me so happy! I also got really into ferns while planning. They’re just so geometric and charismatic for a plant. Who can resist?

I’m extremely proud of my grandpa’s contribution of hand-crafted table numbers and a cake topper. At 85 years old he still creates amazing things out of wood! And, as a bonus, I’ll be able to decorate our future home with these wooden accents. I can’t wait to show them off a bit more. I hand addressed all of our invitations and Save-the-Date envelopes. The escort cards were also my doing. I wasn’t great at hand-lettering before, and still don’t quite have it down, but it was a fun way to save money and finish some crafts on my own. We also recycled some of our unloved vinyl records to use as our guest book. The groomsmen’s bow ties and the bridesmaids’ earrings were an Etsy find.

I owe so much credit to my ‘dream team’ of artists, photographers, florists, musicians, DJs, caterers and all around wedding pros!

From Ebony PeoplesSpringtime in Dallas is backdrop for an outdoor wedding celebration. I recently teamed up with a talented group of Dallas wedding professionals to create a Garden Glam styled wedding shoot. As wedding professionals, we are hired to assist clients in creating the wedding of their dreams. This styled shoot gave us an opportunity to spread our creative wings and share a bit of inspiration to couples planning an outdoor wedding. We selected a color palette that included peach, shades of pink and red, and metallic gold. These colors perfectly complemented the natural outdoor elements in the garden at Marie Gabrielle. Our goal was to include lots of detail that were a bit outside of the norm including a farm table, candied apple place cards, and a garden soil ceremony.

Our Garden Glam styled wedding shoot took place on a perfect spring Dallas day! The husband and wife duo behind Ben Q. Photography were on hand to capture all of the details with film photography! Ducky Bob’s provided our farm table and the elegant gold tabletop dinnerware. The Southern Table did an amazing job with creating our floral decor using lush springtime blooms! The Bee’s Knees designed all of our wedding stationery, including rhinestone embellished invitations. Sugar Bee Sweets created a beautiful floral adorned, iced wedding cake! Binzario provided a jaw-dropping, couture bridal gown with lots of intricate detail. Marilona Makeovers and hairstylist, Ashley Bristo, were on hand to ensure that our bride looked absolutely stunning! Nails by Avonne provided a manicure for our bride complete with a chic, lace overlay! De’Ana Davis and Kelvin Wilson acted as our model bride and groom for the day!

Classic-Chic Dallas Wedding

When you pair a restored industrial building like the Hickory Street Annex with gilded detailing, touches of green and loads of ivory blooms, it’s sure to be a classic, yet chic wedding in the making. And it sooo works. Not to mention, the backdrop makes for some seriously pretty bridal portraits of the stunning Bride, who was glowing thanks to Elan Makeup Studio! It’s a cozy, candlelit kind of gallery from Chapa Images that you won’t want to miss.

From the beautiful Bride… When my husband & I searched for the venue to get married at, we ran across a “hidden gem” that was right outside of downtown Dallas called Hickory Street Annex. Talk about amazing… an old 1900’s oil distribution center that was restored with its original character—beautiful, exposed brick & beams, nearly 360 degree view of windows, & my favorite– the old, but WORKING elevator shaft. This venue couldn’t have been more perfect for us- a place large enough to hold a ceremony AND reception while providing a classy/ chic/ industrial look, and a shuttle service to/from the hotel. The downstairs was used for the bridal suite and “Cocktail Hour”, while the upstairs was used for the ceremony & reception.

The day-of, I had a group of loving and devoted family and friends help me set up my dream wedding- including a vast amount of Pinterest- inspired ideas. From a “Cookie Bar” to a “Cigar Bar,” all personally made decisions on each little detail. We had old window panes to list our Seating Chart, corks to hold each name’s place card, customized Etsy koozies, “dancing shoes” (Old Navy flip flops) for dancing at the reception, and large (empty) wine barrels to use as cocktail tables/ sign holders. Every corner you turned, there were mini mason jars that had little votive candles inside, mason jars topped with hydrangeas and filled with photos & oil to make it look like “old photographs,” and even an old wooden door just to add a little rustic/chic look. We also had a photo booth for some fun reception memories!

The night finished with “send-off” sparklers (which also made for some awesome photos), and a “carriage ride” (a surprise from my parents) just like Cinderella! The whole wedding day/ night was perfect, but what I loved the most was being with my husband to see all the DIY/ personally-made touches/decorations/decisions all come together!
