From Ivy WeddingsStacy and John had an intimate southern wedding at the bride’s childhood church. Stacy’s vintage taste was reflected in her choice of dress, shoes, hairpiece, and bouquet. The bride sprinkled details throughout her wedding and reception that reminded everyone of the couple’s elegant, classic sense of romance. Stacy and John’s wedding day turned out beautifully, and the Texas weather played along perfectly with a warm, sunny afternoon for the wedding, and a cool, breezy evening for the reception and the fun goodbye for the bride and groom!

Plano Wedding by Rachel Ledbetter Photography

A little bit of whimsy, a dash of glitter and loads of personality sums this wedding by Rachel Ledbetter Photography up nicely. And of course those red shoes grabbed my shoe-loving heart immediately. It’s the kind of wedding you just know was a rockin’ good time, and every guest probably left saying “that wedding was SO them!” And who doesn’t want that? Click here for even more!

From the Bride… Our wedding was a fairy tale.  It was a medley of family and laughter and, of course, love.  We hoped that the culmination of all of the planning and prayers would present an adequate illustration of the merging of two very smitten people.  It was a bit wild, certainly whimsical and, when possible, glittery.  And, all in all, it was decadently sweet just in the simple fact that at the end of the day we walked heart to heart and hand in hand into a little taste of happily ever after.

To Everything There Is A Season ~ Julie & David

To Everything There Is A Season … what a great starting point for planning a wedding!

From Kristin at AK Event Design in Dallas, Texas

David and Julie were a fun couple to work with. They loved bright colors and wanted their event to be FUN! We incorporated the “Four Seasons” into their save the date, invitation, programs, menu cards etc. For example…on their invitation, the belly band said “A Time to Love…” The menu cards said, “A Time to Celebrate.” One of the fun things ~ David gave all his groomsmen black converse to put on at the reception. We also used Flutter Fetti at the end of the night during the last dance. It made a great picture and the guests had so much fun!!

Julie and David were married in August at the Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas. The reception followed at The Four Seasons Resort & Club in Dallas.

from the beautiful bride, Julie …

“To everything there is a season…

David and I met at college when we both applied for a co-director position to lead a service organization at Baylor University our respective freshman and sophomore years. David was a long haired, eccentric freshman who knew no strangers, and I was a clean cut, reserved sophomore who was not the least bit interested in “his type.” But, as fate would have it we were selected to co-lead this service organization and through our service became the best of friends and eventually more. Guess opposites really do attract!! At our end of the year banquet, David presented me with a charm that symbolized the four seasons. It was round and was divided into four sections, each with a cut out to symbolize a particular season. A flower. A snowflake. A tree. A sun. He gave me this charm because he felt like it was the perefect representation of the seasons we’d been through together as leaders that past year.

David and I, gluttons for committees, served the following year on a focus group that helped to design a new community center on Baylor’s campus. And what was our inspiration? None other than the four seasons charm. Everything from the light fixutres to the builidng’s name, Seasons Cafe, was centered around that charm. Three years later, it was the eve of my law school graduation and David surprised me with an elaborate proposal that included a walk down memory lane on Baylor’s campus and ended with him on his knee in the middle of the transformed community center, Seasons Cafe, that we’d helped design so long ago.

Thus began yet another season of our life together! When we’d narrowed our potential reception sights down to a handful…the Four Seasons was a no-brainer winner!”

Julie and David’s classically beautiful wedding was followed by an equally stunning reception at The Four Seasons Resort and as noted by Kristin, followed through with the “four seasons” inspiration …
