Bella Bride: Codi Dueitt & Justin Carroll

April was a fabulous month of weddings here at Bella Flora and Codi Dueitt & Justin Carroll really got the ball rolling with their super stylish and fashionable wedding held April 2, 2011 at Robert Carr Chapel (TCU) and The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth.  Photos courtesy of F8 Studios

Codi was a very keen bride with a sharp sense of style and love for all things outside the box.  Every detail about the wedding really suited the look and feel planned for the big day.  Starting with this stunning Vera Wang dress.  

A soft textured bouquet of hydrangeas, garden roses, peonies and ranunculus created the perfect accent
to such a gorgeous gown.  
The gents rocked black tuxes and after five bow ties paired with berry toned boutonnieres.

The big reveal in this charming little chapel hidden on site at Texas Christian University. 

Sealed with a kiss....and off to the party!

Love her bridesmaids peacock toned dresses.  Longer gowns are definitely in the now!

The reception at The Modern was a vivid fete of tropical infused designs of fuchsias, bold yellows, chartreuse, blues and dreamy violets.  I love the clean lines and blank slated walls that really embraced the lighting. 

A white dance floor was brought in and flanked by two long tables decked with custom designed collections of large philodendron leaves, orchids and hydrangeas.  Love this look! 

The rest of the tables were adorned with asymmetric displays of orchids, varying large tropical leaves and clusters of hydrangeas.  

Big Entrance!

Downtown Fever then cranked up the beats for this spirited crowd!

Beautiful Bridal Cake and a very unique Groom's Cake. 

And congratulatory shots!

Dancing into the night! I love that Codi had a quick dress change to really get down. :) 

.....and the departure!  Such a beautiful wedding.  Thank you Codi and Justin for selecting us to be a part of your big day!  Congratulations!

Bella Bride: Jeanette Crowley and Ryan Davie

 When we first met Jeanette Crowley, her bubbly, fun and sweet personality really shined through; brides like Jeanette make our job so much fun as we thrive on such positive energy.  Almost a year later, all the excitement and planning came to fruition on March 26, 2011 as she wed Mr. Ryan Davie at First Baptist Church and The Adolphus Hotel on a gorgeous spring day!

The talented team at Jess Ramos Photography did an excellent job of capturing the day and so many special detail shots!

I love Jeanette's azalea tone Grecian bridesmaids dresses.  The vivid tone complemented her color palette of violet, fuchsia, berry and chartreuse so well! 

The ceremony was short and sweet with 175 of the bride and grooms closest family and friends in attendance.

Always love the energy post ceremony!

The reception was washed with violet/fuchsia tones that really amped up the florals created with hydrangeas, viburnum, calypso orchids, roses and rosettes. 

I love the Jeanette chose to seat her bridal party at two long rectangular head tables with her sweet heart table placed in the center.  It really opened the space in lieu of all round tables. 

First dance as Mr. & Mrs. Ryan Davie! 

.....and then the party really started up! 

Love it!  Truly one of the most energetic brides we've had the pleasure of working with.  Love ya Jeanette and hope to see you soon!
