Bridal Soiree at the Omni Mandalay

Brides of North Texas Fall/Winter 2011 Tablescape

The fabulous gals at Brides of North Texas recently released their fabulous Fall/Winter 2011 issue full of so many yum photos and ideas.  We always love working with their team and especially loved creating our tablescape for the current issue.  Inspired by all things vintage, soft and frilly, we took advantage of peony season and decked out an aged wooden table with a doily lace runner, antique milk glassware and charming aged patina vessels.  The shoot took place at one of our favorite clients' home which really completed the fabulous look!  Many thanks to Perez Photography, Wisteria, Imaj Design, Romano's Bakery, Stanley Korshak, Troy Richard Salon, Hakim Sons Films and our gorgeous model Hailey for helping it all come to life!

Bella Bride: Lisa Ide & Jason Henning

Lisa Ide and Jason Henning's beautiful spring wedding was recently featured on one of our favorite wedding sites, Style Me Pretty.  What a wedding it was indeed!  The elegant affair took place at Lisa's parents' ranch located in Aubrey, TX and was full of so many personal touches provided by our style savvy bride.  Having planned a bulk of the wedding via phone and email, we were thrilled with the outcome as seen with these gorgeous images from Stacy Reeves Photography

Lisa chose a classic palette of all ivory and white floral mixed with rustic textures for a an elegant spin on a ranch themed wedding.  She wed under a cluster of majestic trees laden crystal chandeliers and suspended candles with soft textured bouquets of ivory hydrangeas, garden roses and sweet stock all nestled within birch wrapped cones.   An added special treat was having Lisa's mom ordain the ceremony.

After the ceremony, guests retreated to a tented dinner where low lying arrangements of all white/ivory floral wrapped with textured birch shavings were showcased atop aged wooden rectangular tables.

In lieu of a guest book, guests signed varying mini stones that would be later placed in the couple's garden.  As an added treat, guests were given vintage broaches for the ladies and unique cuff links for the gentlemen.  Pashminas were also on hand for the cool April night breeze.

I love how Lisa let her bridesmaids pick their own black dresses and provided a custom "Lisa-tini" for close family and friends to relish the yummy flavor.

We loved everything about this wedding and were thrilled to have it featured on such a prominent website.  Congratulations Lisa and Jason and thanks for being such a fun and inspiring couple!
