From Vintage Sparkle Rentals and Dainty Dahlias Events...Our vision for this photo shoot was to take wanderlust styling to a level beyond simple boho chic; to generate an air of elegant exoticism while maintaining an intimate environment for the bride, her groom and their loved ones. To achieve this we combined bold, deep colors with soft pastels, whimsical shabby chic decor with sophisticated gold and bronze accents, and classic attire with expressive henna tattoo designs. A team of talented designers, chefs, florists and photographers came together to take this photo shoot from beautiful vision to stunning reality at the City Club of Fort Worth. The juxtaposition of bold colors (burgundys, crimsons and plums) with pastels (lilac, pinks, oranges and ecru) conveyed a momentous and yet carefree feeling.
It is easy to imagine the bride strolling along a garden path, picking the dainty sprigs of tiny white and plum flowers to fill amber apothecary bottles surrounding the altar where she would recite her vows. Southern Magnolias effortlessly blended tropical fuchsia lilies, wildflower-esque purple delphiniums and golden protea, and stately dark peach roses into a magnificent centerpiece fit for a king's table. The Perfect Plan Events supplied the gorgeous burgundy roses, ecru roses, and burgundy dahlias that filled Grace Graffiti's unique floral test tube chandelier and topped the tassel-draped altar.
Newly pledged to one another, the happy couple settled onto a cozy antique loveseat to dine with family and friends. The intimate king's table was laid with a sparkling gold lace tablecloth and ecru linen napkins provided by AM Linen Rental. Pretty Little Plates set an elegant table with vintage gold-banded china and mix-and-match red floral dessert plates resting atop gilded chargers. Toasts to theg churro pieces skewered on bamboo picks. A favorite of young and old alike were Steel City Pops' all-natural fruit popsicles in bold shades of red and pink that complemented the decor. Amuse Bake Shop skillfully handcrafted an array of multicultural desserts to include matcha green tea rolls, delicate pink-, peach-, and seafoam-tinted macaroons, and cookies decorated with pastel patterns that mimi occasion were made from vintage amber and blue water goblets and wine glasses from both Pretty Little Plates and Vintage Sparkle Rentals. The name of one honored guest was written on the leaves of each luscious plum place card created by LaneLove Designs. Dark sepia on cream menus styled by Brown Fox d cookies decorated with pastel patterns that mimicked the bride's henna tattoos. A coffee bar offering classic hot beverages and trendy, refreshing cold coffee treats sat alongside the dessert table. Vintage floral-patterned china cups and saucers were provided by Vintage Sparkle Rentals.
