2013: Our Year in Highlights!

Before we get too far into the New Year, we wanted to take a moment to point out a few great moments from our 2013 wedding season! Because we have the privilege of working with the best clients in the world, we couldn’t possibly cover EVERYTHING, but here are a few things that made us smile this year!


Best Mix-and-Match Bridesmaid Attire

Mixing up your bridesmaids’ attire is super trendy at the moment and this bride knew just the right combination to achieve the fun and fresh vibe she was going for. We love that the dresses are suited to each girl individually but that they also came together just perfectly!

Craziest Groomsmen Attire

We thought we had seen it all until this groom and his groomsmen pulled out horse heads during their photo session! Apparently part of an inside joke, these guys had fun taking pictures and then tucked away the props until later that night when they surprised all the guests on the dance floor!

Most Perfectly Coordinated Custom Paper Products

This couple had Southern Fried Paper create the most gorgeous paper products: from their Dallas skyline Save-the-Dates, to their invitation suite, to the adorable table numbers with custom pictures from their travels, each piece was absolute perfection! The Double Happiness symbol that they used is a typical Chinese wedding symbol–keep an eye out for a Real Wedding post about this couple coming soon that explains the sentiment behind it!

Most Stunning Chuppah

Chuppah’s come in all different sizes and styles and add an extra element of beauty and elegance to the ceremony decor. This Winter Wonderland wedding required something extra special and so the team at Fauxcades custom created the LARGEST chuppah we have ever seen–and Garden Gate added all of that incredible floral detail!

Most Unique Wedding Cake

We’ve seen plenty of amazing wedding cakes, but this one definitely “takes the cake” as the most interesting! This bride was inspired by a stunning architectural piece on the corner of a building and Fancy Cakes by Lauren was able to recreate it on this cake in the wedding’s black and gold art deco color scheme!

Most Picture-Perfect Sweetheart Table

Branching Out did an amazing job with all of the decor for this spring wedding, but we can’t help but swoon every time we see this simple and sweet little table set-up that they put together!



Most Awe-Inspiring Head Table

Head tables are meant to steal the show and this one was no exception! Check out how Bella Flora made this table the most eye-catching centerpiece of the entire reception!

Place Setting Most Likely to Make You Smile

The combination of pink, orange, blue and white was perfection at this wedding and we just can’t help but grin when taking in the bright and fresh place settings that mixed together the color palette just right!

Best Use of Event Space

When your guest count starts adding up, you have to consider the best way to fit all those people in comfortably and this couple did just that! The Frontiers of Flight Museum was the perfect place to host their large guest count and we worked hard to come up with a floor plan that made everyone feel at home–all 900 of them!

We are so thankful for such an incredible year and are looking forward to 2014 and all the exciting events to come!
