It’s always an awesome day when we get to share Celebrate Colorfully Weddings!

Jeanne + Wes got married in February in Glen Rose, TX. It was a full wedding weekend spent at a gorgeous inn rented out entirely by the couple. Y’all, I have never felt more like a part of the family than at this wedding. Every family member there put so much work and love into making this event happen with the flowers, decorations, music, and even the food! It was truly a labor of love.

We had so many amazing, magic-hour photos, it was really hard to choose, but here are our absolute favorites! (See their full gallery here!)

Pinterest is just filled with brilliance. Seriously, this site is like my crazy creatively fueled mind on steroids. I admit, I don’t think of my future non-existent wedding often because it is just that — I’m not engaged, no planning to do, and I’m pretty happy at this point in my hectic life. However, when I do think about personal touched I would use for my own big day it’s always the insanely intimate and private moments I romanticize most. Which is why I have a strange love of grooms gifts.

You know those sweet tokens the bride sometimes surprises her partner with on the wedding day leading up to the ceremony? Yes? No? Well I want to talk about how fab they are! I call them sweet little love notes (just like I hate “sweet nothings” and call them “sweet somethings” instead). The puns are my favorite. Here is my personal guide to what I have in my head to do for my man when that day comes.

1. Watch, “Don’t be late!”

Or you know, “Greatest day of all time” or “Counting the minutes until I do”. This is by far the most expensive day of gift on my list, but watches are timeless and cool and I love them on everyone.

2. Socks for “cold feet”

Solving every bride’s fear of cold feet one step at a time. Cozy, sweet, fun, and if you want to get real crazy, like I always am, monogram it.

3. Alcohol for the jitters

Okay, the saying is adorable. “Grow old with me, the best is yet to be” is super poetic. My man loves scotch and whiskey and all things manly. I’d definitely send up a little bottle service for him and his buddies to kick off the good times and calm any nerves.

These are my thoughts on a sweet little ways to make the big day intimate before it even begins. Of course the ideas are endless and should be customized to y’all. Like a sweet embroidered handkerchief to dry his eyes from the tears of joy from seeing your gorgeous self or sending him a burger to keep him fueled for the day, The possibilities are as endless as your love.

Happy Thursday colorful readers!

We have been dying to share photos from the first ever Big Fake Wedding in Dallas last month and today we finally get to! This was such an amazing event full of incredibly talented vendors and we were so ecstatic to be invited to participate as one of three event designers.

For our part, we were in charge of the ceremony backdrop and three guest tables in the reception area. We really played off the modern-cool vibe of The Joule and created a hanging installation full of embroidery hoops, lace, and gold geometric accents.




For our guest tables we mixed modern metallics with vintage accents. Our centerpieces were simple rose gold wreaths with deep green and purple florals mixed in. In the center, we added a large vase with modern vinyl table numbers and candle to cast a glow over the whole tablescape.

We are so thankful to Lauren of Pretty Little Plates for lending us some of her gorgeous vintage dishes to really make our tables pop! How amazing are these?!


It was seriously awe-inspiring to see these huge team of vendors break out their absolute best to put on a kick-ass fake wedding for all the brides-and-grooms to be who attended as guests.

Be sure to check out our full gallery of the event and the event recaps from Ruffled and The Big Fake Wedding!
