Classical Romance at the Renaissance at Plano Legacy West

Josh & Traci’s spring wedding was an elegant affair, full of traditional touches with a twist. We were thrilled to partner with our sister floral company, Freesia, to put on an evening Josh & Traci will never forget! 

This sweet couple wanted a soft and elegant, yet easy-going and fun, party atmosphere – and we think these combined into simply the perfect wedding! Fun activities included a late-night ice cream cart with build-your-own sundaes by Mr. Sugar Rush, to hours of dancing the night away to the sounds of the Jordan Kahn Orchestra

Freesia loved working with a gorgeous white and blush floral palette, with an abundance of roses, lilies, snapdragons, stock, and sweet spray roses being put to use creating a stunning floral-adorned chuppah and beautiful gold-accented table centerpieces. 

After a private and romantic last dance to “Lady” by Kenny Rogers, Josh & Traci exited into an exciting bubble-filled departure down stairs, filled with cheers, high fives, and well wishes from their near and dear before the after party started in the hotel bar. Too precious!

Urban Wedding at 3015 at Trinity Groves

On a chilly day in February Stellie and Melissa locked eyes for the first time and passion swept through them… well, not exactly. It was more like volleyballs sweeping through them during their first match together. Stellie and Melissa met through the Champagne Volleyball League which they both played in. One day when they both had a match, Stellie’s partner did not show up. Melissa had just finished her game when Stellie locked eyes with her. In search of a new partner for the day, Stellie ran up to her and asked her to play with him for his match and he would buy drinks after. While finishing up drinks, Melissa realized she found a guy that could be a really good friend but Stellie, on the other hand, thought this new relationship could be something more.  Stellie got denied by Melissa three times before she asked him to accompany her to a friend’s wedding. Several dates later they fell in love and Stellie proposed in Las Vegas, to which Melissa replied with a ‘Yes!’

When discussing the wedding, they started out with an idea for it to be urban summer theme. Once they figured out their colors, everything else just fell into place. They both agreed that the colors majolica blue and warm olive were a perfect choice for their urban wedding. After a short engagement of just 4 months, they exchanged their vows and made their toasts at 3015 at Trinity Groves. The venue made their delicious cake as well.  Melissa’s gorgeous gown was designed by San Patrick and she purchased it at Lasting Bridal Couture.

Melissa says that her favorite moment of the whole wedding was having a first look with Stellie. It expressed that it was such a memorable and special moment that they two shared. She was nervous and excited to see him. It was much needed alone time before walking down the aisle.

Their floral arrangements from Fleurs de France really captured the colors and feel that the couple was hoping for. The center pieces were simple and modern. The photos were taken by the talented Harry from Harry Photo.

For the entertainment they had a violinist Richmond Punch, Ernestos mariachi band, and a DJ from ES Events. The violinist played during the ceremony while the mariachi band and DJ played during the reception.

Melissa and Stellie loved the dance floor. They said that it was a joy to see all their family and friends getting down to the fun music. Even Stellie’s grandparents were getting jiggy with it! Melissa said that she loved every song and every dance. They even had choreographed a mash-up for their first dance. How fun!

Stellie and Melissa withstood 3 large thunderstorms that wonderful day but the rain was certainly not going to stop them. They luckily got their first look done at the Magnolia Hotel minutes before the first down pour started. But hey, you know what they say, it is good luck for it to rain on your wedding day! We will take it! Stellie and Melissa were a joy to work with and it was an honor to be apart of their big day. We truly witnessed love as they became husband and wife.

Summer Wedding at Hickory Street Annex

Jourdin & Chris’ summer wedding at Hickory Street Annex in Dallas, TX was one of so much happiness and love!  The journey to this amazing day began 4.5 years prior when the two met in class at Coppell High School.  Despite living long distance during majority of their relationship, they grew together in love.  Chris proposed on a hot summer day in the Katy Trail.  He then whisked his soon-to-be-bride off to a surprise engagement party where their family and friends eagerly awaited to celebrate their big news.

From the beginning wedding planning stages, Jourdin knew that she wanted keep things light by going with a gold and white color palette with touches of glam.  Keeping things pretty simple, everything took place at Hickory Street Annex.  The girls spent the day there leisurely getting ready with Maitee Miles doing their makeup and Abby Kugestadt doing their hair.  Her bridesmaids wore a variety of gold dresses.  Jourdin wore a Nicole Miller dress from Nordstom.  They all looked stunning!  The guys arrived later that afternoon and got dressed in a nearby office so they could just walk right over once it was time for pictures to begin.

Soon it was time for the couple’s first look.  Which proved to be Jourdin’s favorite part of the day as she says, “I’d been kind of nervous at the looming duty the bride has of being the center of attention, and I hadn’t seen him all day and was just antsy.  So the first look really put my nerves at ease.  Plus, it was so exciting to finally see him all dressed up!”

The wedding party had a blast taking pictures with Jennefer Wilson Photography and were soon able to relax and take in the beautiful wedding decor for a bit before the ceremony began.  During the wedding ceremony, sister and Matron of Honor, Kelsey, Best Man & best friend, Jesse, & awesome friend of the couple, Jordan, performed a beautiful song, “Forever Like That, Ben Rector“, to capture the couple’s feelings for one another.  Chris sealed the deal with kissing his bride and they became Mr. & Mrs. Chris Hendrix!

As guests moved downstairs for the cocktail reception, the ceremony was transformed into the par-taay area!  The ceremony backdrop created by Branching Out, was re-purposed for the cake back drop.  Cakes were made by Delicious Cakes and the pocket pies were made by Zenzero Bakery.

Guests were then transitioned back up stairs where they feasted their eyes on all the pretties made by Branch Out Floral and Event Design.  Jourdin wanted to contribute some decor herself, so she saved and painted all the gold bottles that held the florals.

Of course it wouldn’t be a true McMinn wedding if Father of the Bride, Woody, didn’t fulfill his tradition of introducing the wedding party!

After the first dance, guests enjoyed a delicious dinner by CN Catering and listened to entertaining toasts given by the couple’s closest family and friends.

Even though the wedding took place on a Sunday evening, you would never know it by the way everyone danced the night away with DJ Dilly mixing the beats.  It really was a fantastic time had by all!  DWeddings even got in on the action!  We were so honored to have been apart of the second McMinn family wedding.  Congratulations McMinn/Hendrix families!  You truly hold a special place in our hearts.

Real Fall Wedding at the Fort Worth Water Gardens

After meeting in 9th grade in Plano, Texas, Britney and Kris couldn’t wait to tie the knot at their fall 2013 wedding at the Fort Worth Water Gardens. They chose their fall date because it was between their two birthdays, October 1st and October 11th, and it incorporated Britney’s favorite colors: orange, brown, and shades of red.

When asked about their decision to do a ‘first look’, this is what Britney had to say:

“Our first look before the wedding was so incredibly special to me. I was so nervous walking down to see him, almost in tears. So much raw emotion and love! I felt like that moment all the planning and organizing I had done for the wedding was suddenly worth it, every last bit of it. It was the perfect moment.”

With the threat of a thunderstorm brewing, Britney and Kris didn’t even consider moving their beautiful wedding inside.  Somehow, they just knew everything would work out.

The moment the ceremony finished and the guests were inside, it started pouring down rain! They say rain is good luck on your wedding day, which seems to be especially true for Britney and Kris.

After a close call with mother nature, the celebration was taken across the street to the Sheraton Hotel in Fort Worth. All of the details that Britney worked on really came together for the reception. From small details like the signs and the favors, to the intricate centerpieces, Britney and Kris’s reception was true to their style and no detail went unnoticed.

With a grand exit in an antique car to drive them away, their wedding day drew to a close. What a fabulous day! We are so lucky to have been a part of the planning and the celebration.

It seems as if married life is treating Britney and Kris quite well. She explains, “I don’t really feel that much has changed in our everyday life since we got married, but now it’s that feeling like “It’s just me and you, partners for life and in it together. It’s a great feeling!”
