To be honest, I didn't quite realize how behind on posting our work we were until I came across this stunning gallery from LAST OCTOBER and my mind was blown. Don't you fret, we're pulling photos and googling synonyms for "happy" like mad over here!
Rachel + Blake tied the knot last year at one of our favorite venues in Texas, The White Sparrow. This gem of a venue is situated in Quinlan Texas and some people question if it's worth the 40 minute drive from downtown Dallas. Trust us, it totally is! Give Marissa a call and schedule a tour, you will not be disappointed! A member of the Celebrate Dallas team will even be having her wedding there next year!
Now back to our #marriedfacemonday couple and their stunningly rustic wedding day. October usually marks the beginning of fall in Texas and the weather did not disappoint. With the perfectly overcast lighting and our favorite backdrop, there's just so much to love about this day! We paired dark wooden accents with soft neutral blooms and subtle pops of pink. The men were styled in dark navy suits with pale pink ties, while the maids dazzled in various shades of dusty rose and creamy ivory.
One of Rachael's absolute must-haves was a pair of teal velvet chairs from Beautiful Event Rentals she'd spotted on a blog feature of our Autumnal Boho Editorial. Those bold chairs became the focal point of our entire design, playing the vital role of dinner seating. Family was also a huge inspiration to the couple when it came to their wedding day. The date was specifically chosen as a nod to Rachael's parents, who also wed on the first weekend of October. Their officiant was a close family friend who spoke beautifully of their love and a table that once belonged to Rachael's grandmother, held their unity candle and bible during the ceremony.
After an epic dance party on the patio under the stars and twinkle lights, guests ventured to the front of the barn to witness a spectacular SURPRISE firework display put on by the venue. One of our first firework displays, and it did not disappoint! Check out the footage in the highlight video below! Extra big thank you's to our photographer, Adria Lea and our videography team from Joy Neville Photography + Films!
