Blue and yellow has stolen my heart! How can you look at these pics by Allen Tsai and not agree 110%!? These pretty pastel hues make everything sweeter and brighter and more beautiful – though this wedding is awfully stunning on its own! See every bit in our Vault gallery right this way and get ready to get loving on this delightful duo!
From the Bride… Our inspiration came from our venue The Laurel, which has a hill country elegance and charm. I have always loved the hill country look and it was amazing to have it available in the heart of Dallas! We were inspired by the limestone, hearty plants (rosemary, succulents, etc.) from that area; so many of those elements were tied into different aspects of the ceremony and reception.
My mom, grandmother, and I did quite a bit of DIY work. I made the hangers for my bridesmaids, while grandma and mom made the robes! Our favors are also very personal because they are very Italian, where I studied abroad recently. Will and I have been making limoncello for the last few months. We bottled those in the traditional (but smaller) swing top bottles exactly like you see in Italy. We also made little biscotti to give out, one the traditional almond cantuccini, and one more modern version which was a chocolate flavor!
From Allen Tsai Photography… Emily and Will were the dream couple to work with their on wedding day! Some of you might feel that Emily looks familiar and that’s because I was fortunate enough to photograph her in Tuscany recently, which was featured on Style Me Pretty’s Destination Blog! Her beautiful invitation suite was designed by her father, who is a graphic designer, and was perfectly paired with gold calligraphy from Scribbles and Swirls. I really loved her floral design by The Backyard Bouquet which was bright, colorful, organic, and free flowing.
