Bella Bride: Marci & Jeffrey

Another couple who were college sweethearts - this time from the University of Texas at Austin. They had a lovely wedding at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas with a full range of shades from ivory to lilac to amethyst to plum!

The glorious mix of purple hues really popped against the bridesmaids’ aubergine dresses!

Marci’s bouquet had ivory roses, ruffled antique ivory garden roses, gardenias, freesia, and graceful stephanotis blooms symbolic of bridal beauty. Each stephanotis had a rhinestone center and wired rhinestone accents were placed throughout the bouquet to mimic the glamour of the brides’ bodice on her dress.

A traditional, yet soft and elegant, design of the dome-shaped chuppah… how gorgeous is the thick banding of the sweet stock in pure white? For a natural garden-like design, moss-covered planter boxes lined the aisle, filled with solely white hydrangea.

Moss was also used on the escort card table on a bed of orchids…

One of the most stand-out decor pieces from the cocktail hour was this central floor arrangement placed in between the buffet tables. A lush bountiful arrangement was designed in rich magentas, purples, and raspberry tones. The shape of the vessel was constructed out of strung crystals. About 8’-9’ tall, it was hard to miss!

For the reception, accents of raspberry and magenta hues added a bit more flavor and fun to the party! See what we mean below in these fabulous shots!

Over select guests tables hung gorgeous floral elements composed entirely of hanging white dendrobium orchid strands that were hand wired on clear monofilament and strands of crystal garlands.

And last, but certainly not least, our favorite shot…

What an amazing wedding! We were thrilled to be a part of your special day. Congrats again to Marci & Jeffrey!
