Bella Bride: Kate Taylor and A.J. Jesiolowski

The lovely Kate Taylor wed handsome A.J. Jesiolowski this spring at The Dallas Museum of Art on a perfect April Day filled with cool winds, sunny skies and tons of love in the air.  The fabulous duo at Jimmages Photography captured so many beautiful shots of the event beginning with this gorgeous shot of the bride who chose such a fun color palette of ivory and varying yellows mixed with navy and khaki tones. Super Fresh!

I love that Kate chose to give each of her bridesmaids (who rocked Navy dresses) bouquets designed with one type of flower.  Yellow Callas, Cymbidiums, Mokaras, Roses, Ranunculus and Freesia were the perfect accent to such sassy dresses.

Kate's Bouquet was then designed with a soft textured blending of ivory and yellow blooms that included garden roses, ranunculus, hydrangeas and sweet freesia.

The guys were equally as stylish with their khaki suits and a tailored blue suit for the groom.

The ceremony took place in the sculpture garden in front of an ivory hydrangea and yellow carnation creation finished with garlands of ivory orchids and crystal droplets that added a modern flair to the ceremony.

The reception immediately followed upstairs at 1717 where modern displays of yellow blossoms were showcased atop varying ivory and navy linen.

Kate is an art teacher so these next shots are so appropriate.  Love it!

Love this treatment with candlelight suspended from the existing wisteria tree outside 1717.

I also love that Kate and A.J.'s guests came to PARTY!

So Sweet!

Big Finish!  Congrats Kate and A.J.!!!  Sending you best wishes to newly married life!

25/10 - The Rosewood Crescent Hotel's 25th and Bella Flora's 10th Anniversary

Earlier this winter, we were so honored to partner with The Rosewood Crescent Court Hotel as they celebrated their 25th Anniversary and we completed our 10th year creating beautiful weddings and events.  We knew our partnership would be the making of a joyous and fabulous celebration for all our current and past clients and our oh so "festive" event industry friends!  Thisbe Grace and Mark McWilliams were on hand to capture all the yummy and fun details and America's Sassiest Lifestyle Guru Steve Kemble was also on board as key planner to our beautiful event!  We are so appreciative of everyone's support and hope everyone had a great time!!
....and now on to the photos!

The entry to The Crescent Court's newly renovated Gallery Ballroom was lined with a deep plum carpet and framed with beautiful drapery provided by Fun Factory and Quest Drapery.  The tones went so well with the evening's "Sparkle & Shine" Theme.

Berry toned garlands were draped over existing lanterns creating a cool chandelier effect as guests arrived and uplighting in sweet amethyst tones really set a dramatic tone upon entering the ballroom.

Champagne on hand upon arrival? Sign me up!

As guests exited the elevator, a gorgeous backdrop of floral and crystals in awesome tones of violets, fuchsias, berry and lavender greeted guests with such a sweet fragrance and yummy colors and textures.

The floral wall was a blast to create and took thousands of tulips, hydrangeas, orchids, roses and sweet stock to create.  Here is a quick pic of the wall in the making earlier that day by Lucy Diaz-Flores and Cesar Diaz.

Playful tete a tetes donned beautiful orbs of all violet hydrangeas and sterling roses adding such fun pops of color to both the in and outdoor areas of The Gallery Ballroom.

Our very own "Bella" Crew. :), Marianne McGee, Cesar Diaz, Lucy Diaz-Flores and Jaime Jones.

The Crescent's Social Catering Managers Allison Fuld and Julian Leaver.

The Gallery ballroom was decked out with tons of mirrored pieces, crystal accents and an oh so pretty color palette of violets, lavenders and berry. 

After welcomes and introductions, an awesome firework display set the party mood for the night. 

Dj Brandon Olds then got the outdoors pumping with funk beats and pop rhythms.

While Signed, Sealed, Delivered amped up the indoor space with loads of energetic tuneage!

All sorts of industry eye candy were on hand.  Love Mayra Rams Sanabria of My Fabulous Faces and Sonia Trevino who is a master at styling fabulous dos!
