A Wedding Workshop You’d Vie to Attend

Lindsey Brunk and Taylor Lord are here to show us all that wedding workshops? Well they’re the Because this photography + stylist shoot is any proof, we guarantee that we’ll all be vying for a spot next season. See it all in The Vault!

From Lindsey BrunkIt was such a joy to teach this workshop for photographers and stylists alongside Taylor Lord earlier this year! For this editorial, we were inspired by the gorgeous hues of the agave plants on Travaasa’s property and chose a simple color palette of white, cream and dusty green. We absolutely loved seeing our vision come together with this wonderful team of vendors!

Our bride wore a stunning Pronovias Atelier gown that is truly a piece of art. With incredible movement and delicate embellishment, this gown brought an elevated sense of elegance to our shoot while keeping things effortlessly beautiful.

One of my favorite elements of the day was the stunning raised dogwood garland Andi from Pollen Events made for our tabletop. By far one of the most innovative centerpieces I’ve ever seen, the colors and textures of her blooms and greenery absolutely blew me away.

The Sweetest Monogramed Bridesmaid Brunch

Hello, brides-to-be! It’s Ali from Love You, Mean It here to share one of the most fun days i’ve had with some of my very best friends! Besides the fact that I get to marry the man of my dreams, our wedding day is something I look forward to because it’s a day we get to spend with our closest friends and family. And there is one thing for sure, I couldn’t say “i do” without a few special ladies by my side!

I love giving gifts! I often find that giving a gift is far better than receiving one, so I wanted to find a memorable way to ask my friends to be bridesmaids! For those girls living in Dallas, I thought it would be fun to host a brunch to create an experience to show how much I appreciate them, beyond just the gift they would receive.

I wanted to create an intimate setting that would make my friends feel extra special! Our wedding colors will be white, green and gold, so i wanted to incorporate this color scheme as much as possible throughout the tablescape to really set the tone for what’s to come! Each place setting had the most gorgeous pretty little plates, accompanied by green and gold accents. I wrote each girl a special note and used the calligraphy by Alli K Designs on the envelope as their place cards! And no table is complete without a beautiful centerpiece of fresh flowers. R love floral created the most stunning white and green bouquet that made the entire look come together!

For bites, I wanted to recreate some of my favorite brunch items, this time only smaller! Silver-dollar pancakes, mini pastries and petite parfaits were on the menu. And of course, no party is complete without bubbly! For the actual gift, I wanted the girls to receive something that they could not only wear during the wedding, but also have as a reminder of this special time. Inside a monogrammed jewelry box from parker thatch, they would find matching crystal earrings that would be perfect for the big day! A little something for now, and a little something for the wedding day!

I am so grateful to have such wonderful women in my life and I couldn’t have asked for a better day to celebrate them. This is just the beginning of an exciting journey ahead and luckily for me, I have some of the most kind, caring, and intelligent women by my side! To see more of our day, check out this fun video by when it clicks! Thank you so much for following along on this exciting adventure! I hope you are enjoying it just as much as I am!

Saturday Morning Movie: A Love Story 20 Years In the Making

Who would have thought, back in the second grade, when these two met, that they were meeting their soul mate right then and there. But that’s exactly what happened and the journey they started on is nothing short of amazing. Some things just make sense, and these two and their friendship which grew to be so much more, is just that, as we learn in this film by Bear Hands Media. They made it official with a celebration planned by Keely Thorne Events and we’re left in awe, with no doubts in the power of fate.


From Bear Hands MediaAmanda and Ryan have known each other since the second grade. They were friends forever until one day when they finally realized that they were soul mates all along. You can tell by the way they look at each other that their years of friendship has built an unbreakable devotion for each other. It was a pleasure to witness a union of this magnitude. One that was nothing short of meant to be.
