Check out our lush green, white and khaki tablescape that was selected to be featured in the the Fall 2010 issue of Brides of North Texas magazine!  We were thrilled to work with the Fete des Fleurs team, Laura Kelsey at Posh Couture Rentals and Susan and Courtney at Simply Personal.  Nine Photography was wonderful to work with and they took all these fab images.  Our gorgeous backdrop is outside the ballroom at the Westin Galleria — a huge thank you to Patricia Massar and the staff at the hotel for making us feel so welcome!  If you haven’t checked out the hotel since the renovation a few year ago, you need to — it is a great space for your upcoming wedding!


Love was definitely in bloom at this gorgeous winter wedding!  The second Skinner wedding we have been blessed to help orchestrate was about “dancing the night away” and lots of romance.  Suzanne and Dan wanted a 30’s/40’s dinner club vibe for their reception — dancing was very important to them and finding the right band was a priority.  During their first (and last) dances — and throughout the evening — you could just sense how in love they were!  Luke and David Edmonson captured some fabulous images of their dancing, as you will see below.  A phenomenal team, as always, makes the event go that much smoother — thanks to each and every one!

The breathtaking Christ the King Catholic Church was the location for Courtney and Evan’s wedding ceremony this past May.  It is such an amazingly beautiful church, as you can see from the photos below.  The day was full of rain from start to finish, but it did not dampen (haha) the festivities one bit.  The reception followed at the newly renovated (last year) Tower Club.  It is a gorgeous space with a fab view of downtown Dallas at night!  The bride’s cake was one of our favorite things about this wedding, as it had charms on ribbon baked into the cake for all the bridesmaids to pull and see their “fortune”.  🙂  And wasn’t Courtney’s wedding gown just divine?  LOVED it!  Beautiful woman, beautiful dress.

Courtney & Evan had their rehearsal dinner at the Nasher Sculpture Center.  It was crisp and fresh and lovely, with a green and white color palette.  Cocktails were enjoyed outside in the Garden — joyfully, the weather was perfect!  After enjoying appetizers and live music, they moved indoors to partake in a delicious dinner from Wolfgang Puck.  Inside, the tables were decorated with beautiful floral arrangements in tall glass vases. White porcelain doves were tiny accents throughout the decor.  Postcards from the museum were on each table, so that guests could write their well wishes for the bride and groom.  After the fabulous 4-course dinner, the evening concluded with toasts and a slideshow of the bride and groom “through the years”.
