Classic Crescent Hotel Wedding

The Crescent Hotel is one of those classic venues that can always be relied on to provide a beautiful backdrop to the classic soiree, like this one from Amy Herfurth Photography. From the beautiful blooms to the adorable flower girl to the stunning courtyard ceremony, this wedding is classic beauty embodied.


From the photographer… Tiffany & Bob had an elegantly fabulous event with a strong focus on their closest family and best friends. They really wanted their guests to have a wonderful time. The ceremony was held in the beautifully landscaped court yard of the famous Cresent Hotel in Dallas. The the reception was set in one of the ballrooms with immaculate details put together by Marsha Ballard French from Stardust Celebrations Events.

Colorful Rosewood Turtlecreek Mansion Wedding

If color is your thing, this wedding is for you. If color is not your thing, prepare to have your mind changed by Branching Out Floral & Event Design. This wedding, captured beautifully by Amy Herfurth Photography, is a stunning display of color!


From the beautiful bride… I started with a feeling- a fanciful escape, with the elegance of a traditional wedding but the colors of candy land. For floral inspiration, I turned to my own garden- trailing, bright, and somewhat untamed. From there, we created a mix of mirrored, silver accents and whimsical, billowing centerpieces that flowed over their vases. In keeping with an airy theme, we had the ceremony on the 9th floor terrace overlooking the city, under a large floral archway.

Being from South Louisiana, nothing felt more like home than the Turtle Creek Mansion, reminiscent of our plantations. And since our two biggest hobbies are traveling and eating, we wanted a diverse but delicious and culinary experience- sushi, truffle mac n cheese, and a cake with three unique flavors, chocolate mojito, carrot, and white chocolate.

The Venue At 400 North Ervay Inspiration Shoot

There’s only two days left in in this lovely little year we’ve been having, and we’re celebrating in grand style here on SMP Southwest.  I’m talking a winter meets modern photo shoot from some of the finest vendors you’ll ever meet.  Think Allen Tsai PhotographyBBJ Linens and Bows And Arrows coming together for a whole lot of magical moments styled to perfection by Keestone Events.  Get your pretty on in the full gallery.

From Keestone Events… Our goal was to have something that you don’t usually see in winter weddings. The Venue at North 400 Ervay was the perfect spot to try something like this because it is located in the heart of Downtown Dallas, and has a spectacular rooftop that could showcase the skyscrapers as a backdrop. Fun fact: It’s also a historical post office inside!

The colors of gold, silver, champagne and turquoise blue were utilized to evoke that sense of winter. However, we wanted the florals to be able to stand on its own and bring a cheerful pop to the setting as well. Bows and Arrows spared no expense and used peonies flown from New Zealand to make those arrangements! No one says a winter wedding has to only be subdued – it is a joyous occasion after all!

We also wanted to bring some elements of the indoors outside, which resulted in ES Events stringing up a chandelier to evoke that sense of intimacy and elevate the setting at the same time. The Hospitality Sweet came up with some delicious treats for the shoot. They provided hot chocolate shooters dipped in sugar, macaroons with snowflakes on them, cupcakes and a simple but elegant two tier wedding cake to tie everything together.

Those chocolate shooters did come in handy too! Dallas had a cold front come in that day and it was freezing especially on that roof which just added to the authenticity of it! Our models are newlyweds and huge troopers during this time. The bride had to have her eye make up constantly reapplied because she was tearing up due to the wind but you would never be able to tell from the pictures! 

I truly hope you love these images as much as we do. Hope you are staying warm, as well!
