Classic Dallas Wedding at The Crescent

Christina and Jack envisioned the biggest celebration of their lives to be a romantic, timeless wedding, celebrated with their closest family and friends. Their top priority was atmosphere and food, and The Crescent in downtown Dallas, with its outdoor ceremony courtyard and modern chic ballroom was the perfect choice! The couple worked with Sarah of Keestone Events and selected classic blush and ivory tones, warm greenery, and pops of metallic gold for a whimsical flair. Personal details abound, from the stationery and garter, both created by the maid of honor, and lavender candle favors, handmade by Christina and her family. Christina chose a stunning lace Essense of Australia gown, which subtly echoed the intricate ironwork on the terrace of The Crescent, and her maids donned comfy convertible dresses from Lulu’s. We are absolutely smitten with the beautiful images captured on film by Allen Tsai Photography!

Light + Airy South Carolina Wedding

Haley and Jay were married at Haley’s family home in Trenton, SC. The sprawling lawn backs up to a pond, and their ceremony on the dock over he water was both unique and memorable. In addition to the sentimental location, this classic Southern soiree featured some of the most gorgeous florals you ever will see! Lisa Rhodes of Fleur de Lis created a stunning ceremony arbor and fantastic bouquets with fluffy peonies and garden roses in shades of pink and coral that perfectly accentuated the lace bridal gown and crisp white bridesmaids dresses from Elegant Bridals. The tented backyard reception featured jars of Haley’s father’s famous homemade barbecue sauce as favors, a boat full of beer, and some special quiet time spent by the couple on Haley’s childhood playground. This sweet South Carolina wedding is one for the books, and we’re loving the images from Common Dove Photography!

Timeless + Elegant Bridal Inspiration

When a new gown collection debuts by the designer known for dressing style icons like Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy, you know it’s bound to be fantastic! Oleg Cassini created a suite of gorgeous dresses for David’s Bridal, and the ladies of Aisle Society captured the timeless elegance of the designs perfectly with a “Grace Kelly in the Hamptons” shoot at Richmond, VA’s Seven Springs that is absolutely swoon-worthy! The gorgeous wedding dresses took center stage, with dreamy pale pink lace, retro silhouettes, beautiful beading, and classic accessories, and divine florals by Amanda Burnette beautifully coordinated with the bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses in shades of wine, quartz, and steel blue. The tabletop had a decidedly nautical feel, with a model boat centerpiece floating on a bed of greenery, heirloom glassware, and hand-lettered mussel shell place cards. A retro cocktail bar from Cozy Caravan Club finished off the day: the perfect mix of vintage and modern. Totally spellbound by the images captured by the spectacular Nikki Santerre Photography!

A Brooklyn Oasis: The William Vale

If you follow my Instagram and Insta stories, you’ll know that I recently returned from Bridal Fashion Week in NYC and had the opportunity to spend two fantastic nights at The William Vale in Brooklyn’s most fantastic neighborhood, Williamsburg. When I lived in New York, Williamsburg was always one of my favorite local destinations, so I was incredibly excited to spend some time enjoying the area (wow, how it’s grown!) and relaxing at what I had heard was a spectacular new hotel. And friends, I was absolutely not disappointed. The William Vale has both an undeniable “it factor” and an atmosphere comfy enough that my 37 year-old, decidedly un-hipster self felt right at home. From the moment you step foot on property, the first thing you notice that the building is really a work of art. The architecture is interesting and stands out while blending into the surrounding area, and art installations are everywhere – right down to the elevators! The next thing on your mind is—of course—the rooms, and let me just pause here to say, the rooms at The William Vale are not your normal NYC hotel rooms. They are light, airy, high-tech (chargers for all phone types built into the bedside!), and each room features a private balcony with a simply unbelievable view.
