From Lovely Leaves... The yellow dahlias caught my eye and I knew we had to do something with them which led into this gorgeous day. The Phoenix Ballroom is perfect for any season, as are the bright lovely yellows paired with beautiful peach and creams which pop throughout this ballroom wedding inspiration.

The Phoenix boasts stunning backdrops including a rich nude wall, a massive brick fireplace and sweet greenery growing up the outer brick. The wrought iron chandeliers are an added bonus. Tying in with the wooden chivari chairs we incorporated wicker chargers, a basket for boutonnieres, a vintage wooden table and a grapevine wreath. For fabrics, we wanted to stay neutral with sheer voile and soft beige linen.

The gorgeous two-piece gown featured lace long-sleeved top nice for the currently cool Texas temperatures and a cream crepe skirt. Simple makeup showcasing her natural beauty and a loose updo were exactly what we imagined. Amber candles created ambiance in an already-sunlit space. Lily's Cakes designed a soft buttercream cake paired with a smaller naked cake for the occasion which were accented with peach Campanella roses and yellow ranunculus. Arrangements featured the yellow dahlias of our dreams, the Campanella roses, ranunculus, jasmine, ivory astilbe and spray roses, rich peach amaryllis, Queen Anne's lace and precious chamomile.

Studio W is my all time fav for stationery and she designed gorgeous watercolor menus and a matching stationery suite. Film was the only way to go and Dani Cowan never fails to impress; it seemed like forever before the scans came back, but so worth the wait. Our final setting was about a block away from the ballroom where so many of our brides go for portraits. The Waco Suspension Bridge is a local monument just minutes away from Baylor University and the Magnolia Silos. The bridge and surrounding areas feature romantic stone arches, walls of lush greenery below and the smooth Brazos River. The entire area makes you want to fall in love.
