2018’s Most Memorable Moments

A fantastic year indeed! With 42 events completed by our team, we are so proud of the work we have done this year with all of our wonderful clients. Here are our most memorable moments!

MOST MEMORABLE BRIDAL GOWN: MARIANA’S GOWN (Carolina Herrera) Mariana’s chic and elegant Carolina Herrera gown from Warren Barron was so sophisticated and elegant and the perfect fit for her!

Amy’s bridesmaids looked so lovely in these smoky lilac gowns paired with their pink & white bouquets. Perfect for a Texas wedding in Spring!

MOST MEMORABLE’S GROOM’S PARTY ATTIRE: MARCUS & HIS GROOMSMEN When your bride is from Ireland, why wouldn’t you wear Morning Suits? Marcus and his groomsmen fit the part perfectly with this handsome look, and all of the Irish eyes at the wedding were smiling!

MOST MEMORABLE HAIR & MAKEUP: THE STYLING STEWARDESS Kaleigh and her team of stylists helped to beautify all of the ladies this year in the bridal parties of Kate, Lindsey, & Courtney. These three brides and their attendants all looked so lovely!

MOST MEMORABLE WEDDING DESIGN: KELLI & JEFF’S WEDDING (Perkins Chapel, The Belo Mansion, Gro Designs, Shag Carpet, BBJ Linen, La Tavola Linen, Posh Couture Rentals, Top Tier Event Rentals, DFW Dance Floors, Dallas Drape & Light, Beyond, Frosted Art, Bella Acento) Such a stunning wedding design! Bridesmaids wore slate gray and carried bouquets in tones of peaches and ivories by Gro Designs. Guests entered the venue via stairs lined with candles and under two boxwood arches with crystal chandeliers hanging overhead from Shag Carpet. Guests then found their table assignments on a custom made lucite wall by Shag with floral from Gro paired with every guest name and adorning the perimeter of the display. The ballroom looked even more amazing with a head table covered with mixed metallic linens by BBJ and La Tavola Linens, glittery champagne chargers by Bella Acento, smoky silver glassware by Top Tier, and a custom lucite riser elevating more amazing florals by Gro. The rest of the guest tables were equally as beautiful with lush florals and taupe linens, platinum chargers, and champagne chiavari chairs by Posh Couture Rentals. The dance floor by DFW Dance Floors was the star of the show, as Kelli and Jeff chose a gold, glitter dance floor that sparkled with every step. The stage backline was draped by Dallas Drape, and the entire room glowed with lighting by Beyond. Lastly, the cake by Frosted Art with painted gold accents was artistic and delicious.
