MEET THE TEAM | #CCGIRLGANG

OF COURSE, WE ADORE THE PRETTY LITTLE DETAILS AND A GOOD DANCE PARTY, BUT OUR OBSESSIONS GOES A LITTLE BEYOND THAT.

We love the logistics that make an event run smoothly. We love the high of seeing a party that has been months (maybe years) in the making finally come together. And most importantly, we love the idea of two people deciding on forever. Yeah, we're totally down with that.

We are also of the belief that you only need three things to have a wedding: a loving partner, an officiant, and some special people to witness. That. is. it. Once you've got those, everything else is just icing on the cake. (If you even want a cake! Personally, we'd never turn down a wedding pie or donut!)

We're not out to sell you a bunch of junk you don't need or push our style down your throat. We will be your biggest advocates, your sounding board, and your first line of defense against any stress and craziness. Because you deserve to be fully present on your wedding day.

Basically, our aim is to help you throw a kick-ass party that feels like you and have fun in the process.

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

BLOOM COLORFULLY | NO. 03

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday!

Today, we are so excited to start a new series based around all of our pretty pretty blooms!

One of the common dilemmas our flower brides usually have when we meet for the first time is finding a photo of a bouquet or centerpiece and loving it, but having no idea what flowers were used to create the design!

Well, fear not, because we are going to start breaking down the ingredients used in our arrangements! This will be the perfect tool to take with you when planning your wedding color palette or floral must-have list!

We're kicking things off today with these crazy cool, color-filled arrangements we designed for the TOPSHOP x rewardStyle lunch from April's rewardStyle conference, #rStheCon! We had so much fun ordering ALL. THE. COLORS. for this event and you are going to love seeing all the happy flowers we used to create them!

CAROLINA + PAUL | THE CARLISLE ROOM

Yay! It's #MarriedFaceMonday!

We are beyond excited to share this wedding with everyone! Carolina and Paul's wedding was our first of 2017 and every detail so thoughtfully chosen and every moment so full of love!

These two tied the knot in The Carlisle Room in downtown Dallas. This venue is such a cool space with some super cool art deco inspired features. Carolina envisioned tons of creamy blooms, muted greenery, and lots of elegant details.

Our favorite moment of the day was seeing everyone get down on the dance floor! Seriously, this crowd knew how to party and oh man! it was so fun to see! Also, we have to mention the pie bar! Caroline and Paul swapped traditional cake for a delicious mix of pies from Emporium! It was the perfect sweet end to a winter-y evening!

We love how perfectly photographer, Jillian Zamora, captured every moment! Scroll down for the full gallery and vendor team below!

YAY!! It's #MARRIEDFACEMONDAY!

Today we're sharing the wonderful wedding of Lauren + Jordan! A classic couple with a timeless style, this December wedding highlights winter white florals and all the evergreens.

This handsome couple tied the knot last winter at The Milestone Mansion in Aubrey, Texas. Lauren + Jordan envisioned a holiday wedding without all that Christmas red and instead of the standard gold accent, they opted for silver. We were all about it! We're also loving the maids in black trend so many of our brides are featuring. One of our favorite moments came at the beginning of the reception. In a nod to the groom's heritage, the wedding guests were invited to participate in the Grand March, a parade around the reception hall to begin the wedding festivities. 

You can see all the amazing details in the full gallery below shot by one of our new favorites, Kate Pease Photography.  We had the opportunity to work with many new faces like Greg from Simply Music and Madison Bradley
