From the Bride...With family and friends traveling in from literally all over the world the wedding came together flawlessly. Guest came for Zambia, London, Australia, Haiti, New York and all over North and South Texas. The colors that Holly and Brian chose played a key role in the outcome of the final vision, which in turn made my day full-filled with details. The ceremony took place at The Villa Di Felicita located in Tyler Texas which is a premier East Texas Venue designed with a Tuscan flair. Since it was a hot Texas August weekend when the couple wed they planned to celebrate the nuptials inside in the indoor chapel with the same Tuscan atmosphere. Mixed with a gorgeous color palette of orange, yellow, and purples the ceremony was gorgeous.

Throughout the venue, picture frames with the couples engagement images were placed in common areas and reception tables. Not to forget to mention the brightly decorated tables with crystals hanging from each arrangement. Every table had a different feel, but all within the same bright color palette. Holly and Brian were announced by the amazingly talented George Faber and Friends band from Texas who knew how to have the wedding party dance the afternoon away. A live band that played anything from modern pop hits to classic r&b they made guests of all ages get on the dance floor. The cake was a spin on a classic with the flowers of the day on the top-tier and of course crystals placed perfectly on each layer. The bride and groom left to their honeymoon in Hawaii with one of the bride's main request for me to capture her excitement of the send-off, of course with orange rose petals. The day was perfect to see all of the differently nationalities come together to mingle perfectly.
