Bella Bride: Shannon Quinn and Ryan Slack

As fall approaches and cool breezes come in, our Bella Brides are enjoying the nice weather and a break from those scorching temps! Now is the time to enjoy a perfect outdoor wedding, and Shannon Quinn and Ryan Slack knew just the place-- White Oaks Ranch in Pilot Point, TX. This ranch was the perfect setting to incorporate the natural elements Shannon wanted on her big day. Shannon's soft color palette of whites, creams, and chocolate browns was fitting at the rustic ranch. The beautiful October day was coordinated by the talented Mary Frances Hurt at DFW Events and captured by the ever so fabulous team at Joseph Mark Photography.

Beautiful floral chandeliers and romantic glass lanterns were suspended from the 500-year-old tree creating an elegant glistening backdrop for the bride and groom. 

Natural elements were incorporated into every element of the big day. Shannon's beautiful bouquet was designed in free form with a fluttery display of lush garden roses, natural parrot florets and pristine lily of the valley.

Guests were given flip flops to wear to the ceremony so their heels wouldn't get stuck in the grass. What a cute touch!

A perfect Texas evening!

After the ceremony guests moved to the pavilion where they enjoyed decadent decor, fantastic food, and terrific tunes!

Birch wood shavings accented the table arrangements, adding to the rustic ambiance. 

The mantle was adorned with a beautiful collection of candlelight to create a soft glow to the rustic mantle. The cross was embellished with a mass display of floral in whites and ivories to create a beautiful backdrop to the cake. 

The natural white birch cake plateau was crafted for the bride's cake to sit on and complement the decor. 

A gorgeous branchy pattern was projected on the dance floor. 

Blueberry lemonade in Mason jars were the perfect beverages to quench guests' thirst. 

A fairy tale exit for Mr. and Mrs. Slack. 

What a beautiful night! Thanks Shannon and Ryan for letting us be a part of your special day!
