Traditional + Elegant Fort Worth Wedding with a Twist

This Texas wedding is what traditional Southern wedding dreams are made of. From the Bride’s delicate lace bodice for the church ceremony to the traditional chocolate Groom’s cake, this affair, captured by Something Gold Photography, is just full of Southern charm. And the reception venue’s industrial vibe adds just the right touch of modern elegance. See it all here.

From The Bride…Martin and I met in 2011 during our senior year at Oklahoma State University. After graduation, he got a job in Oklahoma City and I in Dallas, so we then survived (or as I prefer to think of it, “flourished”) through three years of long distance dating. We chose Fort Worth for our wedding because I am originally from a nearby suburb and he is from a town in southern Oklahoma, so it was a convenient proximity for our large families and was everything we were looking for.

Our ceremony took place downtown at the First United Methodist Church, which is my favorite church in the city, and our reception was a mile-and-a-half away at 809 at Vickery – an indoor/outdoor, industrial-meets-elegance venue with plenty of room for our 370 guests. Guests were seated both inside and outside for dinner, and then everyone eventually migrated outside to the dance floor once our band got the party started. The weather was possibly the biggest miracle of the day. The tornado sirens went off on Friday night during our rehearsal dinner, however, Saturday was the most perfect day that we could have asked for. We danced the night away in perfect 75-degree weather under cloudless skies with our favorite people in the world – it truly was a dream. It’s almost impossible to put into words the sheer joy, love and happiness that we felt on our wedding day, and we could not be more thankful for our incredible family, friends and vendors for making our celebration everything we could have hoped for and more.

From The Bride…We wanted an intimate wedding with all the things we loved the most. Family, the outdoors, amazing food, beautiful guitar music, and a yummy cake! Everything came together perfectly and the unpredictable Texas weather turned out to be perfect and made for the best day ever! “Love is in the air” was the theme, with the LOVE letters at the reception representing the theme. Deep cassis and purple came together in the suit ties, the dresses and flowers. I wanted the table to be long and beautiful, full of candles and flowers. With soft guitar music playing in the background, romance was all around. We finished the night off with our favorite part-White Chocolate Liqueur CAKE and the first dance as husband and wife! Love was in the air all night, the most perfect night ever!

Purple Infused Southern Wedding

With roots in North Carolina and Texas, this couple set out to craft a day that was oh so Southern. It’s classic in the best of ways but with an infusion of color and a lineup of cowboy boots that gives traditional Southern a fresh twist. Photographed by Aves Photography along with the prettiest purple florals by Kate Foley Designs, there’s even more for you to pore through right here.

From the Bride…I grew up in North Texas, and Will was raised in North Carolina, so my goal from the beginning was to plan a uniquely Southern affair with bits of Texas and North Carolina mixed in. I incorporated rich fall colors, lush pastel florals, and plenty of DIY inspiration to create a one-of-a-kind night that was truly unforgettable. We had so much fun from the beginning of the day to the very end, and Aves Photography perfectly captured the joy of our wedding. The Fort Worth skyline created a perfect backdrop to our day, and each little touch of Texas (including the custom bridal boots from M. L. Leddy’s) and North Carolina (the groom’s cake depicting the NC flag) reminded us of home!

Spanish-Style Wedding Inspiration

Charla Storey Photography… Inspired by both my Basque and Mexican roots, I wanted to create a look that enveloped both cultures. I decided upon a color story that was both vibrant and rich in texture. Deep eggplant, fiery orange, and soft peaches combine with greens to create a vivid palette that is both earthy and elegant. I mixed in gold and cement elements to add glam and relaxed feelings. Both European and Latin cultures enjoy the moment, what it means to be engaged in food, friends, and the environment. The goal here was to design a look that incorporated an al fresco dining experience with a soft, romantic, and striking bride.

Florals + Linens: Florals included a mix of colors and textures. Vibrant poppies, garden roses, and beautiful ranunculus contrast with textural elements of thistle, king protea, succulents, and air plants to create an eclectic mix. Table linens also added texture, combining soft, white cotton, with natural linen and deep orange wool.

From Minted ArtistryHave you watched the show Downton Abbey yet? I have and I am in love with it! Brides and stylists can effortlessly gather inspiration from the fashion, time period and glamorous lifestyle of the Downton cast.

A soft and lush garden party was my vision for this shoot at The T & P Station in Ft. Worth, Texas. Peyronet Photography captured the elements used to create all of the wonderful details; such as, ribbon rosette linens from La Tavola, vintage furniture and dinnerware and opulent florals with cascading ribbon for extra texture. I fell in love with a soft tulle gown accented with delicate lace at Bridal Boutique of Lewisville. A Swarovski crystal tiara and belt added glamour to the brides soft look.

The indulgent pastry set up from Tart Bakery showcased mouthwatering French macaroons, fruit tartlets and cake balls all displayed on unique furniture and accent pieces from Gold Dust Vintage. The bridal cake from Ramono’s Bakery with buttercream frosting and a crystal cake topper was a marvelous addition. The details of this shoot perfected by Minted Artistry were very reminiscent of a formal English high tea which is easily translated into an opulent reception.

The scrumptious floral designs from Justine’s Flowers paired impeccably with the vintage tableware and chairs. The antique cut glass punch bowl from Gold Dust Vintage was the perfect vessel to compliment the vibrant colors in the peonies, garden roses, and tulips. The place cards, menus and stationery designs from The Three, were a sweet and soft touch to the table top. The intricate elements combined to create a romantic garden party place setting for each guest.

The model donned an exquisite gown for the time period and was accessorized with vintage pieces to enhance the look of the Downton Abbey era. With an intricate chignon of loose curls designed by Renn Traylor Beauty and fresh and lovely makeup by Lip Service Professional Makeup Artistry, her formal look was pulled together. To incorporate a heirloom family piece, the florist created a delicate floral bouquet on top of small mother of pearl bible. For a fresh take on a traditional cascading bouquet, the feminine bridal flowers included peach roses, ivory tulips and hanging amaranthus. The bride showcased her personality with her own vintage furs, strands of pearls, glamorous belts and a feather fascinator.

Downton Abbey was the perfect inspiration for my idea of a little girl’s tea party to evolve into a sophisticated grown up affair.
