RACHAEL + BLAKE | THE WHITE SPARROW

RACHAEL + BLAKE | THE WHITE SPARROW

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

Inspiration | Simple Takes the Cake

I think it is safe to assume that one of the best aspects of planning a wedding is tasting cakes. To be honest, I would get engaged right now just to schedule a few tastings! I remember in the 1980's when my mom and dad got married, the options were fairly limited. Three tier chocolate or vanilla cake with white frosting was the name of the game. Now in terms of flavor and design, brides and grooms are only limited by their creativity (and budget). Many of these cakes are truly works of art.

What I love about these cakes is that they are artistic and intricate, but also very simple and sleek. Another very sleek design is the drip cake. Most often the drip cake is a naked cake with exposed layers and minimal amounts of frosting, and a chocolate ganache or caramel topping that is allowed to drip down the sides. I mean, how incredible does this drip cake look by Whisk Until Sweet?!

All of these gorgeous options are made by vendors in the Dallas area! Check them out at Jar Cakery and Whisk Until Sweet and be inspired! Now go schedule yourself some cake tastings ;)

Yay! It's #MarriedFaceMonday!

Today, we're sharing the gorgeous fall wedding of Courtney + Ryan! These two tied the knot at our favorite, White Sparrow Barn out in Quinlan, TX!

We loved so many things about this wedding! From the couple's two pups in a tuxedo and flower collar, to the display of four generations of wedding gowns on the bride's side, right down to the incredible Japanese food; there is just too much to love!

This was the first night of 2016 where it got down to freezing! We had the perfect outdoor ceremony weather and then the temps just kept dropping until there was frost on the last cars in the parking lot! But a little cold snap couldn't dampen the love in this group!

Thanks to photographer Jen Abel for capturing all the love-filled moments and be sure to check out the full gallery and vendor team below!

MOST LOVED | WHISK UNTIL SWEET

Happy hump day! It’s time to show some appreciation to one of our most loved vendors. Meet the #GirlBoss behind Whisk Until Sweet, Heather! She's a native Texan with a major sweet tooth! Heather's style is modern, simple, and elegant. All of her beautiful cakes feature fresh and tasty flavors. The intricacies in the flavors are so delightful they forever leave a remembered taste in your mouth!

1. Five words or a five word sentence that would describe you or your company best? 

Edgy, Refined, Creative, Whimsical, Rustic. 

2. What was the inspiration behind the name "Whisk until Sweet"? So catchy!  

The name "Whisk until Sweet" was inspired by a simple line in a cookbook. I knew I wanted my company name to be simple but to the effect of whisk, stir, mix, etc. So when I saw it, it was perfect!

3. What fueled your passion towards entrepreneurship?

I was working in the marking industry prior to Whisk until Sweet. That environment didn't allow me to be creative and I felt that I was always stepping on others toes. It was a very dictated industry. That's when I saved my money, attended culinary school in Canada, and started Whisk until Sweet in 2011 by myself. Fast forward 5 years... I enjoy being my own boss! It's very fulfilling and flexible. Being my own boss is also pretty cool. I can be creative without stepping on others toes and enjoy what I do, I love it!

4. What was or has been your favorite project thus far?

I did a photo shoot with Grit + Gold at Brik in Fort Wort. I love it because it was rustic, free reign, and actually focused on the cake; which is a rare occasion. Being creative and given free reign of what I wanted to do as a #CakeBoss really paid off, allowing me to really show who I am. Hard work pays off!

5. What would be your dream project or client, if you had the choice? 

Wow! That's a hard one... I would definitely choose my Grandma. She instilled the love of baking in me! She passed when I was 10 years old. She was a cookie girl! I would bake her either snicker doodle or chocolate chip cookies. Not only was my Grandma amazing but so was her baking.

6. What is the next big step for Whisk until Sweet? 

First and foremost, I am so thankful for my 1st year being completely booked! I'm just going with the flow for now. One long term goal would be to have a shop in Dallas, but maybe not until the next five years.

7. What would be your advice for anyone interested in becoming their own boss? 

My best advice would be to stick to a routine. It sounds simple but it really isn't. When it's only you, it's much harder making a living. Five business goals and two personal goals a day helps keep me focused. Goals in which of what needs to happen. I also would suggest finding a community or professional group of friends. My profession and working for myself can sometimes be isolating. Any outlet is refreshing!

Thanks so much for telling us your story Heather! We're so incredibly excited to be working with Heather again for our wedding this weekend!
