From Ashley from Two Be WedAllie was the ideal client, she selected a fabulous color palette and let us loose on her style and design! We settled on a winter glam wedding with a palette of navy, gold and lush berry tones. With navy as a neutral, we really pushed the envelope with the gold glam accents – sequin linens, grand vessels and a head table fit for royalty. For floral, a lush mix of saturated winter berry tones atop of gold candelabras and pedestals, and reserved pops of pink for the bridal bouquet. The cakes took the stage atop of navy sequin linens (never too many sequins!) surrounded by candlelight. Allie was stunning in a lace gown for the ceremony and a youthful blush tulle dress for the reception. The couple was young in love but oh so stylish – it was a perfect blend of youth and glamour with a sophisticated touch.

From The Bride…When I met Grant at fifteen years old, I had no idea he would someday be my husband.

I met Grant at orientation the summer before my sophomore year of high school. I was nervous meeting so many new people, but when I met and locked eyes with Grant, I immediately felt at ease. His long curly hair was messy, and his green eyes sparkled with joy. Can you tell I was enamored?

I was so surprised by my feelings and how pulled I felt towards this guy that I completely forgot his name. When I got home, I told my mom that I had met someone so different and so wonderful. “What’s his name??” she asked, naturally. “Well, I don’t know.” One step at a time, I guess.

It only took about 8 weeks before Grant asked me to be his girlfriend, and our love story began full force. I’ll admit, our relationship for the next year or so was purely built on how big of a crush we had on one another. Our personalities were so different, and it made spending time together so much fun. It was probably during my senior year of high school that I realized Grant was more to me than a boyfriend, he was becoming my best friend. He knew my insecurities, successes, failures, and he still seemed crazy about me.

When it came time for college, we made the decision to stay together, but also to allow one another to grow as individuals into the people God was equipping us to be. This decision made all the difference in our relationship, and I believe it’s the reason we were able to date for over 6 years before we were married.

For our wedding, Grant and I really wanted the décor and the night’s events to reflect the love and gratitude we felt for all the friends and family that supported and prayed us through 6 years of dating. Because Grant and I have very different personalities, we knew our wedding would be eclectic.

Grant loves when events are classy but fun, and I love all things vintage and boho. Because we knew we wanted to get married in December, we decided on an evening New Year’s Eve wedding. For all the gold and colors we wanted to incorporate into the evening, I knew we needed a unique venue that also left us with a clean slate to work with. The outdoor/indoor vintage Mckinney Cotton Mill was an easy decision.

Our décor at the old mill reflected deep jewel tones and vintage gold. Every bit of our wedding day between the deep red flowers, clocks on every table, and the amazing band that kept us all dancing into the New Year, reflected Grant and I’s journey and relationship.

It was a celebration of our friends and family, our relationship, and most importantly of God’s amazing grace and love for us all.

Elegant + Organic Garden Inspired Engagement

In my humble opinion, when it comes to florals – the more the merrier. Especially when Gro Designs crafts said florals into one stunning runner atop La Tavola linens. Blooming with ethereal elegance and romantic charm, this inspirational shoot from the lens of Charla Storey is so stunning that my words alone won’t do it justice, so we’ll let the pictures speak for themselves!

From Gro DesignsThis shoot was inspired by the cascading floral and soft spring colors!

The GRO designs creative team is excited to share this Engagement shoot that marries two of the most popular wedding styles for 2015, garden elegance with organic-natural, while bringing along some of our favorite people and companies we work with to tell that story.

The newly renovated Sixty Five Hundred in Dallas, was the perfect space for our creative director, Nathan Johnson, to dream up this tablescape with muted shades of peach, lavender, pink, and white floral. The defused lighting in Sixty Five Hundred was captured perfectly by the talented Charla Storey through digital and film photography. Charla’s attention to detail and stylizing of this shoot enabled us to capture the intimacy and story we wanted to tell through our models, Clare Selig and Andrew Coates who are engaged to be married later this year. Clare, elegantly wore, a spectacular evening dress by Jenny Packham from Stanley Korshak. Following suit with our GRO weddings, many of the details were inspired from this elegant dress. POSH Couture’s rich green, pink, and gold rimmed china along side their silver and gold flatware were perfectly placed on blush, ruffled LaTavola linen. The texture of the linen was complimented by layers of white hydrangea that frame the dramatic floral waterfall designed by our talented team at GRO. Garden roses, tulips, ranunculus, sweet pea, jasmine, and hydrangea were all represented which happen to be many of our favorite blooms at GRO. Last but not least, the paper details by Natalie Grace were the perfect and final touch to our story.

From Kristen KilpatrickSometimes when a wedding ceremony is so incredibly special and soul filling, it then becomes hard to put into words, which is why the little details and small moments throughout the day play such an important role for telling the sory of the day. Luisa and Even first met during the second grade in their small hometown of Elgin, Texas. After highshcool graduation the two lost touch and in 2012 rekindled their flame. From my very first client meeting with Luisa, she made it completely clear that she wanted the ceremony to be God glorifying and centered on the true meaning of marriage. Luisa also wanted to plan a wedding that was small and intimate, so that she best felt surrounded by family and Christ. This stunning bride couldn’t have asked for a more romantic, sincere, or gorgeous day! Having the entire family able to attend was important to Luisa and Evan, so they decided to go with a brunch themed noon wedding in order to assure everyone made it home safely by evening. They chose to have their wedding at Mercury Hall in Austin, Texas.

The twelve o’clock sunshine seeped through the stain glass windows of the old refurbished Church and completely lit up the ceremony site with the most breathtaking natural light. Upon entering guest mingled and gathered around a table that had old pictures of the bride and groom framed about. The love these two shared for each other couldn’t have been any more evident. Once they signed the guest book, guest found their seats and began listening to soft strums of a guitarist.

Soon after Luisa walked down the isle and dropped the jaws of many as her inner beauty radiated throughout the room. Her effortlessly elegant “up do” and simple diamond drop earrings paired together perfectly, giving her the look of a timeless classic bride.

This elegant couple got married in front of an old fireplace that was covered in fresh garden roses as well as other beautiful flowers with vintage candle holders placed throughout. During the ceremony Luisa and Evan shared communion and prayer together then sealed their covenant with a kiss! With family being so important to Luisa, she had her florist use her great grandmothers vintage mason jars for some of the table centerpieces. Guest enjoyed a seated and relaxed Texas style BBQ lunch and close friends made speeches that brought tears to all!

The brunch aspect was heightened when Luisa and Evan cut into their three-tiered cinnamon roll flavored wedding cake, created by the bride’s best friend and bridesmaid. Vintage china was used to serve the cake and coffee. Luisa brought forth elements of a modern bride to her wedding by incorporating pops of pink vibrant hues to her florals, which added a nice cheerful color to her images. The newlyweds were sent off with a flower toss and lots of love from family and friends. The love Evan and Luisa share was such a blessing to witness, much less capture.

Butterfly Ballet Boudoir Session

Did y’all take ballet lessons when you were younger? I did for a couple years and my favorite part was most definitely twirling in my tutu (instead of doing what I was supposed to). It’s the exact memory that came to mind upon seeing these dreamy images from Archetype. It’s that little girl ballet all grown up and transformed into one of the prettiest boudoir shoots you ever did see.

From ArchetypeMoody, organic bridal boudoir shoot for a bride with whimsical style. The utterly romantic lace and ethereal tulle skirt set the tone for a dreamy collection of images.

“Let us spend our lives chasing the tiny moments of grace that hide in borrowed breaths, stolen glances, and the last instant before smiling lips come to rest.” -Tyler Knot Gregson

DIY insider tip: I made the skirt myself using three layers of silk tulle over two layers of the heavier nylon tulle. Follow online directions to color mix dye for the desired tones of blue. Stitched all layers into a gathered waist bound by a satin bias cut ribbon.
