Romantic Pastel Copper Inspiration Shoot

If you were to ask me what my daydreams looked like, I’d instantly show you this exact shoot from Kayla Barker. Overflowing with heavenly blush blooms by The Southern Table and copper accented Southern Fried Paper, it’s metallic minded pastel perfection. So if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be in this gallery for the rest of time.

From Maxine of The Southern TableFor this inspirational shoot, we wanted to create a soft, feminine garden feel. The historic Aldredge House was the perfect setting to put together this team of great vendors. We chose to feature romantic tones of blush, whites, and peaches, paired with classic white marble and copper elements. Southern Fried Paper’s gorgeously refined invitation suite with copper letterpress set the tone for an elegant evening.

Our stunning model, Gabrielle, was glowing with upswept hair and natural makeup by Ladonna Stein, and so ethereal in BHLDN’s Vivienne gown. This Catherine Deane dress, which is the most delicate shade of pale grey, was a perfect compliment to the beautiful white and grey marble vases in the table scape. Here, we chose soft garden roses, dahlias, ranunculus, anemones and astilbe to pop against classic white linens and modern ghost chairs.

Overall, we think the effect create a light and airy look and a sense of subtle sophistication. The finishing touch was the gorgeous hexagon cake with classic white fondant by Layered Bake Shop, displayed on a white marble stand. Kayla Barker captured all the magic perfectly and will definitely inspire brides with her stunning images.

Jason Kennedy & Lauren Scruggs’ Dallas Ballroom Wedding

When we got a look inside Jason Kennedy and Lauren Scruggs’ LA engagement sesh, I was convinced it couldn’t get any better. But then the crazy talented Kat Harris and Lindsey Shea sent along their wedding, and I instantly changed my tune. It’s a day filled with deeply personal moments and out-of-this-world design by Todd Events, and you can grab a front-row seat in the gallery right here.


From Kat Harris PhotographyWhen I think of Lauren and Jason I think of depth, authenticity, laughter, and power. What is amazing about their love is that individually they both have passion to be a positive voice in our culture, and together the power they have to be leaders in our world is endless. (Not to mention their love is completely infectious!)

Their wedding day was flawless. Surrounded by their family and community they celebrated what God has done in their lives, and their journey towards forever. Lauren was so full of peace and so grounded that day, and Jason is always a ball of energy and such a light.

Their ceremony was intimate and tears and laughter brought their announcement of husband and wife. Todd Events created an effortless winter chic vibe, and to say there was an epic dance party is an understatement. Jason and Lauren you two are gems. You bring such light to our world, and we are so excited for your lives to unfold!

Elegant Peach Dallas Wedding

With Georgia and Virginia as their home states, this couple wanted nothing more than to infuse their Southern roots into their wedding day, and elegantly so they did. Branching Out crafted beautiful peach and magnolia foliage centerpieces, while bridesmaids wore full-length champagne Jenny Yoo dresses and the stunning Bride in a lacy Essence Of Australia gown, paired with a perfect chignonSarah Kate captured every moment and you can see them all right here.

From the beautiful Bride…Magnolias in May-the mindset I had when planning our special day. My husband is from Georgia and my family is from Virginia so I really wanted our wedding to reflect our Southern roots. One of the best words of wisdom we had prior to our big day was to truly savor every moment, which is why we tried to truly embrace all the special moments of our day.

My husband and I chose not to do a first look, however I embraced that modern tradition and did a first look with my daddy (Pops). It was a moment full of joyful tears and our sweet photographer Sarah Kate had to stop numerous times for me to get it together for photos. I couldn’t look at Pops without becoming a blubbery mess, our bond is truly one of a kind.

My husband and I have alternated planning surprise date nights every week nicknamed Hot Tuesday ever since our very first date. It was such a fun way to explore our new city [Dallas] and motivated us to plan fun dates around the city. I fell in love with Ross through all the surprises and so I really wanted to plan a big surprise for him on our wedding day. All of our family and friends are familiar with our date night and our good friend that married us even mentioned it in our ceremony.

Ross went to The University of Georgia and to say he is a bulldog fan would be an understatement. I wanted his surprise to be something really memorable to him as well as something fun for our guest to enjoy. The Rabun Bourbon Bar was the perfect addition to make our wedding truly personal. It was so much working with Caroline Fair, Fauxcades and Southern Fried Paper to create the surprise. My daddy built the frame for the sign the week of our wedding-sweet man!

My husband and I snuck into the ballroom during the outdoor cocktail hour so I could reveal his big surprise. It was a great way to kick off the evening and our guest [especially the Georgia fans] loved personalized bar.

When I met with our florist I explained to her, I knew nothing about flowers but wanted magnolias and peaches to bring our Southern roots to Dallas. My husband’s family is deeply rooted in Georgia and I wanted to symbolize both of our families becoming one on that day. Branching Out Events surpassed our vision for our Southern wedding, trophies filled with peaches, magnolia foliage welcoming guest to our cocktail hour and mint julep cups reminisced for a perfect Southern Saturday.

Our friends and family love to dance and Cuvvee brought down the house. We danced the night away closing with an intimate last dance to truly savor the evening.
