Fall Flowers

We’ve been so inspired by all the beautiful fall flowers and decor we’ve seen so far this season and it got us reminiscing on some of our favorite floral installations we’ve seen over the last 2.5 years. So we wanted to share a few of those favorites to help inspire you for your event.

We were so smitten with the understated elegance of Sarah and Jonathan’s wedding. Copper & Birch and Pink Parasol DC worked with a neutral pallet of white and green with accents of steel blue. They adorned the aisle with ferns and simple white petals for a thoughtful and elegant look. We were blown away by the brides loose, hand picked bouquet and centerpieces.

Leticia and Vu’s floral palette was full of rich colors and dynamic textures. With garlands providing an understated elegance to the head tables and gold votives and vessels for the guest tables, this was truly a breathtaking affair.

Nada & Stephen's Spring Destination Wedding

A beautiful spring morning in the Texas Hill Country, gave way to an even more stunning evening for this amazing couple! Family and friends traveled from all over gathered for this Nada & Steven’s destination wedding. The brides parents even had a traditional Lebanese band surprise the couple for a few dances! It was so much fun to watch! Fine feather florals did such an amazing job decorating everything with such elegance. The evening ended with a romantic sparkler send off and a happily ever after for these two love birds.

Amazing Wedding Cakes and Sweets Display

We’re not sure if you missed it but we had a pretty incredible cake display this weekend!! That got us reminiscing about some of the other gorgeous cakes and sweets displays we’ve had here and wanted to share a few that continue to inspire us!

 

Alex and James’ wedding was a classic spring wedding, with soft colors and an understated elegant style. There classic two tier cake from Catering With A Twist was the perfect pairing with their event and the flowers Lee Warth brought to it were just the right accent. So, what was so extra inspiring… scroll down and see the DONUTS!! Alex wanted to bring something a little extra to her sweets and had VooDoo Doughnuts brought in, with one specially made to celebrate her father’s birthday. LOVE!!

If you saw Virginia & Chris’ wedding on the blog earlier this month, you know there was nothing “traditional” about their day. From the style of her ceremony, her decor and THAT DRESS; Virginia brought flare to every moment. Her cake was no exception!! This pink geode inspired cake from 2 Tarts Bakery was nothing short of incredible. From the hand painted effect on the front, to the sugar geode accents…. just amazing!

Trisha and Matt’s marbled cake was just simply stunning! Sweet Treets Bakery, The Flower Girl and Pink Parasol DC found a way to balance this modern look with soft feminine accents and we LOVE it!!

This trio of cakes, and cream puffs, from Simply Delicious Custom Cakes were a hit at our Summer Engagement Event in 2017 and we are still quite smitten. Not only were they tasty but they provided just the right touch of whimsey to the event and gave guest options on how to best appease their sweet tooth!

You're invited!! Stationery Trends

We are so excited to welcome all the upcoming guest for our Fall Weddings. So we decided to take a quick glimpse at some very cool stationery trends, we may just be lucky enough to see!

Starting off with this gorgeous set from August and May Design Co. as shot by Kayla Snell. We love the hand written calligraphy look and the subtle accents of watercolor. And how about this styling from Olive and Belle and Floral from Love Lily Florals…. So gorgeous!!

Sarah and Jonathan’s set definitely embraced the watercolor trend as well but we have to admit it’s not our favorite part. We LOVE that envelope!! The hand calligraphed names in white with informal names and the fun matching stamps. There is no doubt Sarah is an artist herself when you see these!! Photos from Leighanne Herr

This look definitely gives us a much more modern wedding look and we LOVE IT!! The hand painted acrylic invitations provide a sleek and super cool moment for your guest when opening their invitation. Then you have these black menu cards that are etched into gold…. WOW!! Amazing work to Pink Parasol DC on this delve in to stationery and Kati Maxwell for the stunning photos!

This gorgeous set was a collaborative effort between the groom and his planners. The watercolor background and fallings stars embossed in gold have us starry eyed. Also did you notice the custom monogram stamped in gold for the couple…. OMG!!

Virginia & Chris' Modern Hill Country Wedding

From Virginia's illusion gown to their modern ceremony in the round, this wedding was an absolute stunner. We were blown away by the attention to detail from the Silverthistle Weddings and Margot Blair's teams. The floral accents and that modern copper arch from Bee Lavish were just inspired. Then there was all the tasty treats from Heavenley Gourmet, 2 Tarts Bakery and Drink Slingers. Cap the night off with some amazing beats from our first female DJ, DJ Nixx and you had one rocking party! We are so excited to share this wedding and so thankful to Leah Jeffers Photography for capturing all these details so amazingly!
