From Keestone Events... Our goal was to have something that you don't usually see in winter weddings. The Venue at North 400 Ervay was the perfect spot to try something like this because it is located in the heart of Downtown Dallas, and has a spectacular rooftop that could showcase the skyscrapers as a backdrop. Fun fact: It’s also a historical post office inside!

The colors of gold, silver, champagne and turquoise blue were utilized to evoke that sense of winter. However, we wanted the florals to be able to stand on its own and bring a cheerful pop to the setting as well. Bows and Arrows spared no expense and used peonies flown from New Zealand to make those arrangements! No one says a winter wedding has to only be subdued - it is a joyous occasion after all!

We also wanted to bring some elements of the indoors outside, which resulted in ES Events stringing up a chandelier to evoke that sense of intimacy and elevate the setting at the same time. The Hospitality Sweet came up with some delicious treats for the shoot. They provided hot chocolate shooters dipped in sugar, macaroons with snowflakes on them, cupcakes and a simple but elegant two tier wedding cake to tie everything together.

Those chocolate shooters did come in handy too! Dallas had a cold front come in that day and it was freezing especially on that roof which just added to the authenticity of it! Our models are newlyweds and huge troopers during this time. The bride had to have her eye make up constantly reapplied because she was tearing up due to the wind but you would never be able to tell from the pictures! 

I truly hope you love these images as much as we do. Hope you are staying warm, as well!
