NOEL + CHRIS | NASHER SCULPTURE CENTER

Yay! It's Married Face Monday!

This one is a special one! Noel + Chris tied the knot in September at the Nasher Sculpture Center. When we first met with the couple, Noel told us about her family's flower farm in New Mexico where they grow fields of Gladiolus and how she wanted to incorporate these special blooms into her big day. We were so down!

Her family drove in flowers the week of the wedding and we had so much fun incorporating them into arrangements, bouquets, and creating a stunning ceremony arch dripping in these gorgeous blooms!

NHU + VINH | D WEDDINGS FEATURE

#OHHELLSYEAH!! The Celebrate Dallas blog is back! It's been a long hiatus from writing and posting and we're so excited to get back into sharing our creative space with all of you! We feel it's only fitting to kick it off with our "oldest unposted wedding" which we kept under wraps for very good reason but have been dying to share since the gallery hit our inboxes LAST YEAR!! 

We truly have to thank Shaun & Shannon Menary, our amazing photography duo, for submitting this lovingly crafted day to D Weddings for their Fall issue. We're incredibly honored and humbled to be included in it's glossy pages. Our first print publication, someone pinch me! 

It was hard to keep this one close to vest. Nhu + Vinh hold a special place in our hearts and over the year long planning process, we became quite good friends. Witnessing their day miraculously unfold into a magical sun-lit garden party within the span of a few hours was incredible and only those in attendance can truly understand the labor of love this day was (see photos of Groom drying the dance floor for proof!) 

Nhu came with a solid vision for her wedding day -- a bold mix of color and culture. If you've been following along, you know we love color, so Megan was thrilled! Pairing textural pinks + warmer orange tones, we pulled inspiration from the surrounding landscape to create the perfect setting for a summer wedding. This day was truly magical in more ways than one and we're so excited to finally share it with you!

WEDDING GIFT ETIQUETTE

WEDDING GIFT ETIQUETTE

Hi friends!

Today we're excited to bring back our Tips series and break down some Wedding Gift Guidelines! Wedding gifts are a common tradition, but it can still be a little overwhelming to make sure your gift is perfect.

Without further ado, let's get into some etiquette!

DO'S

  • Do check the registry - You are guaranteed to give a gift they will love if you choose something from the registry! More than likely, the couple spent a solid day or two creating their registry with their exact needs in mind. Grab them that knife set they've been eyeing and they'll love you forever!
  • Send large gifts to the couple's home - Who wants to lug a microwave to a wedding in their fancy get up? Spare your back and the couple's family at the end of the night by shipping gifts directly to their home. Most registries will have this option built in to make it super simple!
  • Do send gift as close to the wedding as possible - Don't put off the gift! Make it easy on your self and the newlyweds and get that item off your checklist as close to the wedding date as possible!

  • Do check out Zola! Zola is an amazing registry resource where couples can register for all the classic home building items or even experiences or money for a specific investment (like home buying or a charitable cause!) It's an awesome, one stop for couples who don't want to go to a ton of stores to register at each individual one!

DON'T

  • Ask the couple where their registered - Yes, it's still considered bad form to ask directly where the couple is registered. Even though they did register, they don't want to seem like they are only after material goods. Check their wedding website or ask immediate family or bridal party members for specific instructions.
  • Don't feel guilty about giving cash - There is nothing wrong with giving cash! If it's easier for you, go ahead and stash some bills in a pretty card and sealed envelope. Make sure you look for a card box or give your envelope directly to someone close to the couple to ensure it makes it to its intended recipient.

  • Don't feel bad if you find out your gift was returned or exchanged - Even if you purchased something off the registry, it's possible that the couple received something similar or an exact duplicate. Sometimes, things like that happen, and your gift may be returned or exchanged. The thing to remember here is that you're giving a gift to help this newly married couple start their home. If they exchange your gift for something they need more, then you're still doing that! :)

Yay! It's Married Face Monday!

Today we're curing the winter blues with this gorgeous July wedding! Carley + Jake tied the knot at The Farmhouse in Montgomery, Texas with the perfect greenery drenched wedding! 

Our bride, Carley, had a vision to cover this stunning venue in as much trailing greenery as possible and we were totally down! It was a greenery lover's dream come true!

MAKENZIE + CALEB | THE WHITE SPARROW

Yay! It's Married Face Monday!

To we are so over the moon to share Makenzie + Caleb's incredibly gorgeous wedding day!

These two tied the knot at our fave, The White Sparrow, in August. Makenzie envisioned a soft palette of white, peaches, and dusty blue and we were smitten! Big fluffy flowers, muted eucalyptus, and the gorgeous white backdrop of the barn made this one of our favorite weddings on 2017! Just so much pretty!

Special shout out to Cottonwood Road Photography for the jaw dropping images! Seriously we died when this one hit our inbox.
