Wedding Trend: All Things Agate

One wedding trend that I am a HUGE fan of right now (and don't think I'll ever stop being a fan of tbh...) are agate slices! These gorgeous rocks will instantly add elegance, uniqueness, and serious show stopping place settings at your wedding reception!

For Ariel & John's Dallas Arboretum wedding, the bride had flat agate slices that she wanted to have lettered with all of her guests names to be used as place cards. First off...no complaints over here. I LOVE lettering on agate slices - they are so smooth and the ink glides right on, and especially when it is gold ink...too much pretty. Second, how fun is it that they are kind of like a built in wedding favor for your guests, too! Each of them gets to take home this pretty stone personalized just for them. I'm a fan! Ariel also provided large slices of agate that were used as simple table numbers. The combo of these beautiful floral arrangements, the agate slice, and touches of succulents were the perfect setting for this gorgeous Dallas summer wedding. Take a peek at the images below to get some inspiration on how to use agate slices the right way!

Forest Bohemian Shoot

This shoot is always a good one to look back on...I just love all of the delicate details that made up this setting. This boho style makes for the perfect little woodsy picnic scene! Also, I am just going to put this out there...this styling team made the Pantone colors of the year cool before they were the Pantone colors of the year! These hints of dusty blue and blush pinks paired with the greenery surrounding, all the heart eyes! Loved working with this talented group of vendors!
