Sometimes that job you took in high school just might lead you to the love of your life, which is exactly what happened in Elisabeth Frakes & Chris Landry's case. While working at Abercrombie, our couple formed a bond which then lead to marriage! Chris's proposal happened high in the skies, spelling out "Will you marry me" on the ground, then taking Elisabeth up in a plane to see! With such a stellar proposal, only a luxury Dallas wedding would do! Marrying at the Covenant Church, Elisabeth & Chris were then swept off in a gorgeous Rolls, heading to their fuchsia light reception featuring tall floral centerpieces, floating candle illuminares & a stunning textured tiered cake with a to die for real rose mid layer! Rounding out their evening, was a photo booth complete with awesome props & a sparkler sendoff!

I cant exactly put my finger on it, but there is just something about Italian weddings that I am so incredibly drawn to! They are inherently elegant, sophisticated & refined, while still maintaining the perfect dash of sexiness. The venues & views at each unique affair always come stock with romance on high. The wedding of Paula Tavira & Louis Oliveira is not an exception, but the very definition of a stunning luxury wedding. Wanting to emphasize crystal detailing & stunning floral decorations, Paula worked with Franci's Flowers Wedding Design to make her vision come true. The gorgeous grounds & roof top views of Via La Vedetta paved the way for a swoon worthy day that is deserving of many a repin on Pinterest!

"I wanted to create something vibrant in the middle of a very natural location. I was inspired by the headpieces, the colors, the involvement of the bridal party, the jewels, the gown changes and the natural elements that made this wedding different than any I had ever seen before. So, I teamed up with Aaron Haslinger Photography, Richardson's Florist, Rusty Love Vintage Rentals, Preston's Stationery, Robert Ashtin Salon and Second Nature by Meg Browning to create an editorial style shoot that brought the latest tribal trends in fashion to the wedding scene. The team was great. The models were awesome! And, the results were daring and fresh. While this shoot is definitely an exaggerated take on a fashion trend, I think REAL weddings can be inspired by it's fun color scheme, amazing stationery, and willingness to take risks in pulling fashion trends into bridal."

Rounding out the week, I figured I would end on a place that is calming & serene, like Lake Michigan! This little styled shoot has some great touches that are totally borrow worthy for those considering a seaside inspired theme for their wedding days. Perhaps my favorite touch over all is one well tied together element...Netting! The use of the netting on the table top is fantastic & I complete love the idea of it! Carrying that element on, what you might not realize at first, our bride's birdcage veil...yup thats netting! Fastened with some well placed pearl touches, this takes the idea of a veil and brings it right into the wheel house of the seaside theme. Lastly, the use of twine (like netting!) with seashell touches wrapped around the bouquets brings everything full circle! Have a Fantastic Sea Dreamy Weekend Everyone!!
