Bella Bride: Jessica Toumani & Dale Fresch

Stunning Bella Bride Jessica Toumani wed Dapper Dale Fresch on June 4th, 2011 at The Historic Union Station on perfect summer day that would be one that both families would remember for a lifetime.  Bella Flora worked with the lovely Brenna Wurtz at Holly Tripp Events in bringing their stunning vision come to life. Everything about this wedding was planned perfectly and each detail had such personality and character that really embraced the newlywed couple. 

Starting with these super fun save the dates by Sil Azevedo.

The blue tones from these awesome underwater shots were to appear throughout the rest of the wedding. Starting with these timeless Badgley Mischkas that complement the bride's lace accented gown wonderfully.

The" something blue tones" went really well with the rest of the wedding color palette of ivory, white and splashes of cymbidium green.  I love the striking shade of blue the bridesmaids wore; here seen getting ready for first looks.

The gents were given chartreuse green orchids to offset the blue tones.

I love first looks; Sil did an excellent job of capturing these special moments between bride and groom.

Jessica carried a gorgeous bouquet designed with peonies, muscari, cymbidiums, and regal calla lilies that highlighted the wedding tones beautifully.

After first looks, Jessica, Dale and the bridal party wisped away downtown Dallas in a vintage styled trolley that went so well with the underlying travel theme and provided some great imagery!

Upon entry to the reception, guests were greeted with a magical presentation of candlelight enclosed in varying glass cylinders. So dreamy!

Stunning entry piece, charming guest book travel case and the cutest "train" place cards that tied in the perfectly with the reception's location!

The ceremony was both a grouping of Christian and Persian customs that took place atop a custom stage built by Jessica's dad and a glorious dome that hovered over the elaborate sofreh.

Love this shot of the ring bearer creation and the hand embellished programs.

A very proud father indeed as he walks his daughter down the aisle.

Such a beautiful ceremony quickly followed by a stunning reception decked with all white/ivory creations of orchids, hydrangeas and calla lilies.

The two head tables were then accented with splashes of blue floral in keeping with the wedding tones.

Once night fell, the elaborate lighting treatment provided by Absolute really gave a dramatic accent to the room.

First dance as Mr. & Mrs. Fresch.

Gorgeous cake from Fancy Cakes by Lauren with a triple cascade of flowers!

Emerald City then kicked off the party that lasted well into the wee hours of the night.

And the finale with a sparkler send off and horse carriage ride.

Such a fun wedding.  Thanks again Jessica and Dale for allowing us to be part of this momentous day!  We loved working with you both and wish you the very best!  You're definitely off to a great start with so much love from your awesome families.

Rehearsal Dinner: Libby & Jr

Earlier this spring, we were thrilled to be working with DFW Events in creating this rustically charming rehearsal dinner for Libby and JR at The Dallas Arboretum.

Guests entered the reception through beautifully landscaped Woman's Gardens and arrived to The Historic DeGolyer House where a tented dinner awaited.

Aged wooden tables were draped with textured burlap runners and wrought iron candelabras that elevated dreamy displays of amber candles.  Placed below were textured garlands of magnolia foliage, potted muscari, geranium, vibrunum snowballs and rich mosses.

We love these chalk board table numbers and playful menus. Yummy southern comfort food is always a wonderful treat!

The juxtaposed rustic and elegant place settings were so pretty and totally befitting of the outdoor garden setting.

It was awesome that the weather that night was perfect! It totally made the event a wonderful prelude to the wedding day.

What a fun event!  We were so happy to be a part of such a fun party.  Wishing Libby and JR the best in married life.
