With cheerful arrangements by Bows And Arrows and scrumptious cakes by Layered Bake Shop, every charming detail will have you scrolling through the gallery for so much more.

Whimsical
From Nbarrett PhotographyGorgeous, May wedding with beautiful vibrant colors. This wedding was an eclectic mix of Spring blooms arranged in Spanish terra cotta on gold sparkled table tops. And to top it off a stunning floral curtain installation for the ceremony. From the Bride… For our wedding day the first thing we knew we wanted was a fabulous photographer. Natalie was the perfect fit! From the first time I met Natalie all the way to the engagement shoot (her adorable bulldog Magnolia kept us laughing the whole time) we fed off of her energy which made our wedding day perfect. We also knew we wanted a May wedding since the flowers and light are the best reminders of the starting of our engagement. After spotting Hickory Street Annex while driving through Dallas, we instantly knew that the architecture and freedom of the venue is exactly what we were looking for! The vintage yet industrial feel and renovated bridal suite is what made me fall in love. We were at the liberty of having both the ceremony and reception in one location but the venue still had a natural flow… especially since the guests could use the repurposed bridal suite as a cocktail area. Of course, planning a wedding is stressful. I eventually realized that collecting every little detail of our wedding is not my cup of tea so we asked Amanda from Hickory Street Annex to help. She was amazing! She knew that we wanted to keep the wedding small and intimate by only having 75 guests. Knowing that a wedding isn’t complete without magnificent flowers…we met with Alicia from Bows & Arrows who knew exactly what we were looking for. We wanted something completely different and to be super vibrant! The deep purple, bright pinks, and oranges from the flowers is what fueled the inspiration for our wedding. She and her wonderful team created the most astonishing hand strung flowers for the ceremony back drop and they used unbelievable terra cotta pots for the centerpieces. They even set aside the perfect colored blooms to be placed on our delicious cakes and dessert bar (my favorite part of the wedding)! Most importantly, the best part of our wedding day was sharing it with our little boy, family, and guests! Their love and support was the only thing we wanted on our wedding day.

Romantic Park City Club Wedding

This adorable duo had a BIG bridal party, and I love it. I’m a more the merrier kind of gal, and the bigger the bridal party means more blooms too! Posh Floral decked out the ten pretty in pink cowgirl-booted bridesmaids with darling bouquets, the handsome groomsmen in charming boutonnieres and the flower girl in a sweet floral crown. Not to mention, even more floral goodness at the reception—see it all in the gallery from Stephanie Brazzle!

From Posh FloralLeslie (McCombs) and Ivan Roussev met at Southern Methodist University, Ivan is from Bulgaria (and his step-father is French), Leslie is a true Texas girl, the wedding was a Texas chic with old world European. The ceremony was at Perkins Chapel on the SMU campus to tie together where the two met. Park City Club brought the different cultures together perfectly. Valerie and Valerie Wedding and Events designed the cheese/fruit/bread display, floral, and all the sweet accents (wine cork guest “book”, table numbers, etc.) to make it just lovely. Posh Floral brought in white and pink florals to match with the blush bridesmaids’ dresses, and gave the wedding and reception a soft and beautiful feel. Panini Bakery created the bride and groom cakes, including a special Gluten Free cake for the bride, and a birthday cake for her aunt! The Wonders rocked the house of 300 attendees, and kept everyone dancing! Everything was brought together and executed by Brittany Timmerman Events.

Blogger Bride Devon Rachel’s Wedding

Over the past year, we’ve had a front-row seat as our dear blogger bride Devon Rachel planned her big day. From proposal to dress shopping, engagement shoot and every moment in between, we’ve grown to feel so a part of her planning journey and believe it or not, the big reveal is finally here. It’s a day for the (modern) storybooks, and thanks to the work of Jana Williams and Candlelight Films we get an inside look. Read on for the day in sweet Devon’s words!

From Devon RachelDevon from DevonRachel.com here with some rather exciting news: I said I Do! Chandler and I tied the knot. It was such an honor to take you along on the journey of planning as the first Style Me Pretty Blogger Bride. And after a whirlwind of newlywed bliss, I’m overjoyed to bring you a piece of our big day.

With our wedding, we wanted to mix traditional and non-traditional elements. I fell in love with the Joule Hotel because it fit my taste for modern yet livable décor with an LA vibe. I felt like the hotel suited us; we’re part Texas and a dash of California. The ceremony was held on the roof of the Joule Hotel where two floral archways complete with ombre rose petals lined the aisle. I purposely didn’t take a peek of the décor (and you know I wanted to!) before and I’m so glad I didn’t. I was overwhelmed with joy when I walked down the aisle and was in awe of how great Bella Flora did with the flowers.

Remember my “How to Choose Wedding Flowers” post? Well, our ceremony and reception were decked in beautiful blooms. I wanted guests to feel like they walked into a secret garden – and I think we achieved that! My bouquet was a very whimsical mix of gorgeous pink, peach, and white flowers. My sweet bridesmaids looked unbelievable in their different Amsale gowns. I chose three different colors as well – I really wanted to be unique with the styling and I was so pleased!

For my bridal look, I wanted to feel like a modern day Brigitte Bardot and I feel like we achieved that with my dress, makeup and hair. My first dress (flashback to that first Dress Shopping post) is by Oscar de la Renta and it was not originally a one-shoulder gown. I had them remove one side to really showcase the bow and it was so perfect for me. Can we talk about that huge bow? It makes my heart pitter-patter. I teamed up with Blushington and Dry Bar to do mine, my bridesmaids and both mother’s hair and makeup. It was such a fun time having both teams in our hotel room. They made everyone look and feel so amazing, just like in our Bachelorette Celebration post!

For the reception, we chose to bring in my love of black and white stripes to the menus and chairs at the head table. Floral runners lined each table next to candles and beautiful gold-rimmed glassware. Since I was a little girl, I dreamt of having a vintage Rolls Royce to take us away and a black and white checkerboard dance floor. I was so unbelievably happy to see both of these dreams come to life. And the flowers adorning the back of the car were just cherries on top of an amazing night.

Dancing has always and will always be important to us, so we wanted our guests to have plenty of room and great music to dance to. I have to say, our band, Limelight, completely blew us away. They brought the house down and we danced all night! Everyone had a great time and that’s what we wanted. Right outside the ceremony, mirrored tables housed my non-traditional guestbook: Vogue Weddings. Guests signed on each beautiful artistic page of the gorgeous coffee table book. We now display the book in our home and I love taking a moment to look through. We are incredibly fortunate to have such amazing love stories to look up to in our family. I wanted to showcase and celebrate the love over the years, so we placed black and white photos of our grandparents and parents’ wedding days on a mirrored table outside the ceremony.

I cannot explain the feeling of overwhelming of love I felt walking down the aisle. I walked arm in arm with my sweet father as I watched my husband to be cry tears of joy. I did not expect him to cry! I truly believe Chandler and I are soul mates and I am so thankful for him. In that moment, we made the most important commitment of our lives: to each other. It was so special! I thank everyone involved for making it happen.

I hope you enjoyed these moments from our wedding! It was truly the best day of my life and I am overjoyed to share it with all of you.

xoxo, Devon Rachel
