VENUE HIGHLIGHT | JEFFERSON TOWER EVENTS

Happy Wednesday friends! We've made it halfway through the week and we hope you have fun plans for Memorial Day weekend! 

Today we're taking a sneak-peak into this unique Dallas venue, Jefferson Tower Events! The iconic Jefferson Tower in the heart of Oak Cliff has a rich history though the original building has been fully restored to provide modern amenities. The building covers over 4,000 square feet and the interior is decorated with Art Deco details. The natural light and authentic Dallas view definitely sets Jefferson Tower Events apart from the rest! 

With services like in-house catering from La Calle Doce and El Ranchito restaurants, floral design, furniture rentals, and his-and-hers private lounges, Jefferson Tower Events has everything a couple could want in their big day! 

Although we've not yet had the pleasure of hosting a wedding at this venue (we sure want to!), we did participate in the Swoon Event early this spring here. and it also happens to be local to our studio, The Coterie, in Bishop Arts! Keep scrolling for a look into the venue! Enjoy!

The Minimalist styled shoot featuring this spectacular venue is coming soon!

TIPS | REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS

Most girls have a Pinterest, whether it's for DIY home ideas, clothing, or our personal favorite, weddings! On the other hand, most girls have also found that the pictures they quickly fell in love with on Pinterest, are often out of their wedding budget. 

This week, we have some tips and tricks to educate brides on the price tag of a pinterest wedding and how to have realistic expectations for your budget, because really... who doesn't have at least some sort of budget for their wedding!? People all around the world see the same images and fall in love with the same ideas, without any knowledge of where that venue is or how much that gown truly costs. Here are a few things to keep in mind! 

That venue doesn't always look that perfect at your budget.

Those drapes with twinkle lights are not always so perfectly placed, and in fact, the cost of the venue might not even include them. Having a venue add drapes and lighting can cost up to thousands of dollars extra! The additional costs at a wedding venue, for example, upgrading the color of the reception chairs from a black chair to a nicer white chair, can quickly add up and surpass your budget, so make sure you know what you want and if the venue includes those little details in their rental price.

That "discount bridal dresses" caption might be paired with a designer dress picture.

Pinterest can be deceiving at times... you can't always trust the caption that goes with the picture! Personally, I have about a million (okay, maybe not quite THAT many) dresses pinned for ideas when my time comes around, many of which have "cheap wedding dresses" as the caption. After doing some digging, I've found that most of the dresses, which I have imagined myself walking down the aisle in, are accompanied by a not-so-cheap top dollar price tag! Take those pictures and use them as inspiration for your own wedding gown, shop around, and find similar styles at local shops that are within your budget. 

Sometimes, we have to go to the professionals for help.

DIY this, DIY that. Yes! Don't get me wrong, you can save quite a bit of money doing things yourself, but if you're anything like me, there are just some things you gotta know when to turn to the pros. One of the most common examples this wedding season is calligraphy.  Welcome signs, menus, invitations, you name it and it's being done this season! I know my handwriting isn't the best, let alone trying my hand at calligraphy! So if your budget allows, find a professional from your area and spend the extra change to get that sign so perfectly written everyone will think it's printed! We highly recommend Ellie and Ace, and you can learn more about them here!

All in all, some of the best advice I have, is pick what is most important to you, and splurge on those things. For some brides it will be florals, for others it will be the photographer, and for me personally, the cake! Pinterest should be used for ideas to help get those creative juices flowing. Make your wedding your very own at a budget that won't break the bank!

Venue Highlight | The Room on Main

Happy Wednesday friends!! Today's venue highlight features The Room on Main, voted one of The Knot's Best of Weddings picks for the last four years. Offering beautiful views of Dallas from the 6th floor of the Dallas Arts Center, The Room on Main is truly a one of a kind wedding venue.

A magnificent bar,  modern bridal suite, and swank grooms lounge are also on site. Excellent service and catering are provided by their exclusive team from CN Catering.

VENUE HIGHLIGHT | THE WHITE SPARROW

Happy Wednesday!

Today's post will be simple and sophisticated, just like The White Sparrow Barn, the incredible venue we are featuring! The White Sparrow is a beautiful, vintage white barn located in Union Valley, Texas (40 minutes outside DFW). It is listed in Country Living as one of the 30 of the Country's Most Beautiful Barns for Weddings and has received the Best New Venue Award for 2016 from the Venue Report. We fell in love with it the moment we stepped foot on the property to shoot our Paul Bunyon Inspired Styled Shoot which is why we want you to know more about it!

The venue includes a banquet hall, cocktail area, full kitchen, bathrooms, an office, a patio, and a gorgeous stairwell leading to the bride's and groom's quarters. Not only is it an immaculate indoor venue but the barn itself, is surrounded by a huge open field complete with massive oak trees which means great photo-ops or even potential for an outdoor ceremony with an indoor reception!

Without further ado, here is where YOU could potentially get married!

We hope you have fallen in love with this venue as much as we have!!
