Purple Mountain Majesty

The rains cleared on this wedding day just long enough for us to get the florals on this gorgeous structure and for the ceremony, but then stormed again during the reception at the Couloir. I have to say though that rainy and stormy wedding days make for some of the most dramatic photos.  I love the sky in the picture below. This couple was so sweet and had been together since junior high, quite the love story!  They wanted a "nerdy" influence to the decor, so we had stacks of books, bell jars, etc in the centerpieces on the tables and overall decor.  I loved how it all came together in the end. 

Love in New York City

My dear darling friend was married in New York City and requested raspberry and coral.  She is purely joy and I knew she would need something as beautiful and lovely as she is.  We flew in on the red eye and ran to the flower market to pick up the flowers.  We made it just in time to deliver the flowers and still be a guest at the wedding.  There is nothing like the hustle of the city, but always an added element of excitement to be rushing with the bridal bouquet through the streets. We love you Katie & Devin, one of the sweetest couples of all time, and wish you only love and happiness.

Parisian Inspired Four Seasons Wedding in Dallas

I loved working with this sweet family on their daughter's wedding.  From the first time we sat down together, I knew this wedding would be gorgeous.  Their inspiration photo was so lovely and it was golden from that moment on. The bride and groom were honeymooning in Paris, so they wanted a touch of Parisian influence in their decor. They had debated between having the celebration in the family's lush and green backyard or at the Four Seasons.  By the time the party started, it was pouring rain outside but the ballroom was beautiful and dry.  A win for all!
