Glamorous Ritz Wedding

Ashley and Jared’s Glamorous Ritz Carlton Wedding – July 9, 2016

This glamorous Ritz Carlton wedding was a truly a night to remember for all! Ashley and Jared are such a stunning couple, which made for the most beautiful photos. For the ceremony, Ashley was escorted down a candlelit aisle by her mother and father. A 9 piece string group played in the background to enhance Ashley’s dramatic grand entrance.

Adorned with stylish greenery, ivory flowers, and a crystal chandelier, the Chuppah set the perfect backdrop for Ashley and Jared’s dreamy ceremony.  Chic black tuxedos and bridesmaid dresses enhanced the couple by really making them pop on the stage!

Families from around the world came to celebrate. The glamorous reception was decorated to the nines to create the perfect party atmosphere! Each table featured pretty bouquets of blush and ivory flowers with a splash of greenery to match the overall design. Life size lanterns, covered in  floral, hung from the ceiling to carry the enchanting feel throughout the room for this glamorous Ritz Carlton wedding! Emerald City Band kept guests dancing to music from all decades all night long.

As guests entered the space, everyone was in awe to see the cake on display under the reused chuppah from the ceremony. Who could let that pretty piece go to waste? During the party, multiple courses were served throughout the night. Courses include an over the top sushi station with custom chopsticks. Next, on to a three course plated meal for guests to enjoy. Rounding out the dessert course were fun adult snow cones served with an affogatto bar! The entire reception was an epic dance party, complete with confetti cannons and a laser show!

Ultimately, this wedding was glamorous and everything we could ever dream of! Happy first anniversary Ashley and Jared!

Red, White and Blue Wedding Inspiration

 

As we approach a holiday filled with patriotism, fireworks, and dripping popsicles, we wanted to take a moment to share some inspiration from one of our previous styled shoots. Although patriotic wedding colors may not be on the top your list, we’re here to provide you with some refreshing – and fun – red, white and blue wedding inspiration!

With blue and white on trend right now, we wanted to interject some fire engine red. This play on colors is just right for a classy, southern table scape. The mix of blue china and vases were gorgeously paired with fiesta red blooms. The outdoor setting provided elegance and sophistication to the overall look and feel for a  red, white and blue wedding. The blue vintage glassware rounded out the tabletop with an perfect extra pop of blue. It even makes you feel like you’ve been at dining at grandma’s with a slice of pie and glass of sweet tea.

Our final touch to this patriotic soiree? We would ABSOLUTELY add a fireworks display and sparkler send off for the newlyweds to put a perfect cap on our red, white and blue wedding inspiration.

Arboretum Engagement Session

alyssa and kevin’s arboretum engagement session

We just had to share Alyssa and Kevin’s Dallas Arboretum engagement session with Ashley Rains Photography. It was a day filled with perfect weather (and lighting!) for their cute pics. Our favorite feature, a fun floral  covered 70s style VW bus on display from The Dallas Arboretum. We just love our clients and can’t wait to see their big day come to life as we work on more planning and design details this week!

how they met

Kevin and Alyssa went to a rangers game for their first date. They spent the whole time talking to each other even though they both love baseball. In the beginning, they were drawn to hanging out with each other even though they were complete opposites and did not understand the other. Alyssa and Kevin went to a few Aggie football games and continued to enjoy spending time together. Alyssa says “We both bring very different positive attributes to our relationship. To this day, we love spending time together. We are each other’s best friends and help each other in everything.”

how he proposed

On New Years Eve, Kevin took Alyssa to an Italian restaurant for dinner. She pretty much knew what was coming because apparently Kevin cannot keep a secret. They spent the meal reflecting over the time that they had spent together. After dinner, Alyssa and Kevin went to go look at the holiday lights in Vitruvian Park. At the big tree, he asked her to marry him, and surprised her with friends there to take pictures. Afterwards they went to Alyssa’s parents house where there was a New years eve party, and a celebration of the couples’ engagement!

This week, we get to dive head first into design details for this sweet couple. We can’t wait to add personal touches to their big day and celebrate their love this fall!
