We’ve had a gorgeous day on the LBB blog, there’s no doubt about that. But it’s not over, not by a long shot. If Ben Q. Photography, Ebony Peoples Events & Design, Sugar Bee Sweets and The Southern Table have anything to do with it, we’ll be gazing for hours to come. They’ve turned our garden wedding dreams into a work of art with this breathtaking shoot. A touch of glam here and a pretty bloom there, this one is a doozy darlings.
From Ebony Peoples…Springtime in Dallas is backdrop for an outdoor wedding celebration. I recently teamed up with a talented group of Dallas wedding professionals to create a Garden Glam styled wedding shoot. As wedding professionals, we are hired to assist clients in creating the wedding of their dreams. This styled shoot gave us an opportunity to spread our creative wings and share a bit of inspiration to couples planning an outdoor wedding. We selected a color palette that included peach, shades of pink and red, and metallic gold. These colors perfectly complemented the natural outdoor elements in the garden at Marie Gabrielle. Our goal was to include lots of detail that were a bit outside of the norm including a farm table, candied apple place cards, and a garden soil ceremony.
Our Garden Glam styled wedding shoot took place on a perfect spring Dallas day! The husband and wife duo behind Ben Q. Photography were on hand to capture all of the details with film photography! Ducky Bob’s provided our farm table and the elegant gold tabletop dinnerware. The Southern Table did an amazing job with creating our floral decor using lush springtime blooms! The Bee’s Knees designed all of our wedding stationery, including rhinestone embellished invitations. Sugar Bee Sweets created a beautiful floral adorned, iced wedding cake! Binzario provided a jaw-dropping, couture bridal gown with lots of intricate detail. Marilona Makeovers and hairstylist, Ashley Bristo, were on hand to ensure that our bride looked absolutely stunning! Nails by Avonne provided a manicure for our bride complete with a chic, lace overlay! De’Ana Davis and Kelvin Wilson acted as our model bride and groom for the day!

They say everything is bigger in Texas, but this wedding is sort of a happy exception. It’s love-centered simplicity done with elegance and grace, and thanks to Apryl Ann Photography and Copper Penny Films we’re getting a first-hand peek. Cozy up and enjoy!

From the Bride… My husband and I met at a club in Dallas Texas called Glass (which is unusual because neither of us frequent clubs!) He had just moved back to Texas from North Carolina where he had finished up his Master’s at Duke University. I had graduated from Southern Methodist University and was working in Oil and Gas. We hit it off right away and got engaged soon after in New York City under the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center.
We then went to Niagara Falls (one of my favorite places) and Toronto to meet his family. For our ceremony we had a traditional Chinese Tea Ceremony where we honored our parents and relatives by serving them tea. We also had a traditional Christian ceremony at Park Cities Presbyterian Church as well- I absolutely love the stained glass windows of the church and the beautiful memories it carries for me.
I picked the Dallas Arboretum because I loved the flowers, rustic charm and scenic views of the lake and the Dallas skyline. It was absolutely perfect weather in November and we danced the night away under the stars. I had spent time making sure there were a lot of personal details including plenty of Etsy purchases!
The flowers had lots of green and white in them with touches of red and most of the decor was DIY’d by myself and my mother or purchased from Etsy. My dresses I actually bought preowned- the Aimee Atelier dress I found on preownedweddingdresses.com from a bride in New Zealand and the J Mendel dress I found for $150 dollars on Ebay. I tailored them to be unique just for me and felt awesome in them. All the little details really made the day special but the most important part of the day was the love and joy that surrounded us as we celebrated with our family and friends.

From My Mint Photography…Sarah and Chris’ southern summer wedding took place at a gorgeous ranch venue in the Texas hill country. We loved the sweet, lighthearted feel of their wedding. We also loved the pop of colors that Sarah incorporated which made it feel extra summery.
