Tropical Wedding Inspiration

With summer on its way out the door for a while, I thought I'd take this time to share some amazing summer wedding inspiration before its totally irrelevant during the months of summer hibernation :) This styled shoot was done with Brides of North Texas Magazine as a wedding gown editorial; aka, there were several beautiful wedding gowns featured, all shown with different floral/hair/jewelry styles - but all equally jaw dropping inspiration for the summer bride! Also featured in the shoot was a fun modern and tropical paper suite (done by yours truly, of course!) that helped set the tone for this fabulous event. My favorite part of the whole shoot was the wedding program that was hand lettered on a large tropical leaf to keep with the theme. It was one of a kind and so so fun to work on! Enjoy the images from this beautiful shoot, and you can find the full list of vendors below!

Cute little boutonnieres all different but tropical! And how gorgeous is that tulle gown?!
The invitation suite featured watercolored leaves along with pops of hot pink and gold. 
No need to incorporate calligraphy lettering into the actual paper pieces in your suite, especially when you are going for that modern look. 

The invitation suite was designed to be a very modern and sleek set to go along with the theme and dresses in this shoot. Watercolor tropical leaves and pops of hot pink are paired with gold patterns. The fonts are very minimalistic and simple, and the calligraphy is only featured on the outer envelope along with vintage stamps to add the personal and unique touch!

Ridglea Country Club | Fort Worth, TX | Williford Wedding Spotlight

Sarah and Dale's traditional and classic wedding took place at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Fort Worth, followed by a fun reception at the Ridglea Country Club! This wedding is always fun for me to look back on, because Sarah had so many fun details she wanted to incorporate into her wedding papers! She wanted classic wedding invitations paired with gorgeous envelopes, and what we ended up with was absolutely perfect for her special day! All of her paper pieces were printed in gold foil, which just adds a serious level of wow/amazingess/preeetttyyy! Who doesn't love shiny gold text flashing on the paper?! Take a peek through the gorgeous details of her wedding day, including bright beautiful florals that made the whole day pop!

These little tags were tied onto all of the wedding favors, the cutest little golf ball shaped cake balls! The tags displayed the wedding hashtag, which is always good to display throughout your reception so your guests remember to tag all of their pictures!
