Let’s Celebrate, Old Sport: Shannon and Richard

Touches of vintage opulence and a party that would rival the ones thrown in West Egg were the cocktail of details our bride, Shannon, wanted to create for her wedding at the stunning Arlington Hall. With the infectious energy and attention to detail she brought in tow, we “knew in a moment [we] would have to spend the next few days rearranging [our minds] so there’d be room for her to stay” (to echo the Fitzgerald novel we interpreted in our design). Every visit with her made us all the more excited for the next one to follow. From the Art Deco-inspired...

Red Red Wine: Lizzie & Eric

Nothing says February quite like fine wine and roses. This fun-loving couple sealed the deal surrounded by shades of cabernet and chardonnay with Dutch florals including Roses, Hydrangea, Ranunculus, Calla Lilies, and flowering white Cherry Blossom branches. While Lizzie and Eric enjoy taking big risks—they both love to gamble—they played it safe on their wedding day by choosing vendors and venues they truly trusted and admired. The ceremony was held at the nostalgic Holy Trinity Catholic Church. This beautiful church has been in the heart of uptown Dallas for over 100 years. Lizzie...
