Bella Bride: Keri Gooding and Anson Amis

This trendy bride made sure each element was unique when she married Anson Amis on September 25 at The Fairmont in Dallas. A soft and romantic palette of ivory and soft blush was accented with barely there porcelain tones with silver accents. Everything from the bride's couture cake to the personalized guest table cards left guests in awe! Check out the amazing team of vendors at the bottom of the post that put together this romantic day. 

Keri rocked two amazing dresses for her special day. For the ceremony she fashioned this gorgeous Rivini gown then changed into this sassy little black number for the reception. 

Oh my gah, shoes! The delicate bows were the perfect match to Keri's ruffled wedding dress. Her beautiful and soft textured all ivory bouquet was designed with hydrangeas, fragrant gardenians, ranunculus, lisianthus, procelain roses and accents of seasonal fresia for a truly memorable bouquet. The stems were hand tied with a pretty ivory ribbon treatment and pearl and jewel topped pins were added for additional embellishment. 

Keri and Amos exchanged "I Do's" under a gorgeous dome shaped arbor. Fine ivory silks swathed the top layer and bundled beautifully along each of the four posts. A bountiful display of floral was designed at the top portion of the dome with floral in tones of ivory, champagnes and blush pink. Stems included hydrangeas, varying roses, sweet stocks and lisianthus clusters adorned with hanging crystal droplets. For an added designer touch, strands of decorative crystals swagged from all four sides are met in the center. 

You may now kiss the bride!

Collections of glass cylinders of varying heights lined the aisle, creating the perfect walkway to lead the bridal party and bride towards the magnificent arbor. Vessels were filled with fresh water, submerged petals and glowing displays of candlelight. 

Keri's gorgeous bridesmaids were given bouquets designed with soft antique pinks, pale lavenders and blushes of pinks. Stems included antique garden roses, ruffled ranunculus, lavender lisianthus, ivory majolica rosettes and hydrangeas. All stems were hand wrapped with an eggplant toned ribbon for a coordinating look with their fashionable dresses. 

At the reception, guest tables were adorned with a variety of beautiful centerpieces in soft antique pinks, blushes of pinks, champagne and porcelain toned floral. Glowing candlelight accented the styles for a romantic glow. 

Replacing the ordinary place cards were these unique and fun custom made police cars! (New trend alert!) Since Anson is a police officer, these were creative alternatives to boring, paper cards. The table was draped with an ivory toned linen and accented in ribbons in light pink and blush to resemble a road for the cars. 

Ruffles, ruffles and more ruffles! It looks like Keri knew what was hitting the runways this season! Keri's chic cake was adorned with a soft textured topper of soft ivory and pale blush toned flora of hydrangeas, lisianthus and spray roses. 

Groom cakes are getting more and more original! Anson's creative cake was accented with his favorite things! 

A colorful candy bar was a favorite for late night snackers!

Having fun in the photo booth!

Love this photo of the happy couple!

We can't get enough of those police cars!

Congrats and good luck to this fun couple!
