Have you picked up the latest issue of D Weddings yet? If you have, you’ll notice Whitney & Carlos on the first two pages of the Real Weddings section! But if you haven’t, or if you want to see more pictures from their big day, we hope you enjoy our feature on this Bella Bride!
This wedding was held at the bride’s parents’ Burleson ranch back in November of 2008. It was full of lavish shades of raspberries, plums, lavenders, and orchids combined with a touch of chartreuse, ivory, and even metallic. A stylish mix!
White flora and accents of soft pink composed the beautiful bouquet for a fresh look to accompany her Elizabeth Fillmore gown – which had gardenia accents along the bodice!
From the home’s main gate entry to the tent where the reception was held, there was not one scenery or landscape without some sort of floral or decor!
Guests were welcomed at the entry gates with circular discs completely embedded with chunky mosses and a monogram made of orchid blossoms.
Ivory luminaries lighted the path to the bridge… where pretty floral arrangements were elevated atop iron markers planted in the ground… and then more luminaries led the guests into the ceremony area.
The trees were also adorned with suspended displays of candlelight and mini chandeliers of varying types and sizes. Eventually, guests were led to two tall towering trees near the home’s front door for the ceremony.
The boys & girls...
Mr. & Mrs. Lopez!
The reception followed in a tent, designed towards a fashionable and chic look with low lying centerpieces and ornate crystal chandeliers.
The cake was placed on a simple Lucite table, so not to take away from the exquisite details...
…and the groom’s cake coordinated beautifully atop the custom smoky mirrored table.
Lounging outside the tent...
...fully equipped with a candy bar!
Squeezing in a few last detail shots!
