REAL WEDDING: Payton and Brandon at the Adolphus

Payton and Brandon were married on a beautiful, warm fall day in October at the Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas. They exchanged vows during a meaningful and lively interfaith ceremony that combined Christian and Jewish traditions. After the ceremony, well-dressed guests in tuxedos and glamorous gowns enjoyed a dinner duet of steak and chicken. The Adolphus wedding catering team kept the cocktails flowing, and IDT Band had the entire crowd dancing all night long!

I hope you enjoy this sneak preview of the event from Jennefer Wilson Photography.

Payton loves glamorous, sparkly gold accents, but also appreciates simple design, so we started with a palette of soft gray, blush, champagne and cashmere as our inspiration. "Cashmere" is what I like to call that creamy, romantic, gray-ish color with faint background notes of pink, purple, and taupe. It's one of my favorite colors and it looks beautiful in wedding settings (and in wall paint, if you happen to be re-decorating anytime soon!)

Bella Flora composed lush tall and low centerpieces with hydrangea, dahlia and a mix of garden and spray roses to complement the color palette:

Bella Flora created their gorgeous art atop La Tavola linens, and romantic champagne uplighting from LeForce Entertainment brought it all to life. Pretty beaded glass chargers and ornate gold flatware from M&M Special Events completed the tablescape.

Location is the hands-down most important design selection you'll ever make. Check out the gorgeous architecture in the Adolphus Century Ballroom. The mirrored "windows," the sconces, the wainscoting - all of these elements are begging for attention, and they deserve it! The low centerpieces in the background and just a touch of champagne uplighting from LeForce Entertainment allow the beautiful wall design to sing. The bride and groom got to sneak peek the space before any of their guests entered, and they couldn't believe the transformation!

I am passionate about creating beautiful, intimate events by helping my clients to select the right professionals and focus their efforts (and wedding budgets) on the most important things!
