    On June 20 of 2015, Mark and Ivy were married at the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens in the Fuller Garden. Blush floral baskets were hanging from the gazebo, a wonderful touch since Ivy’s accent color was pink. She walked down the aisle wearing a custom designed gown fit for a Princess. The bridesmaids stood by her side wearing vintage-inspired black and pink dresses. Soft music from a live harpist played and Father Marlin of All Souls Episcopal Church officiated the Christian ceremony.

    After the ceremony, guests made their way to the reception at The Fort Worth Club. Ivy’s mother surprised her with a Rose’ Champagne Tower during Cocktail Hour. Specialty Décor and Lighting was brought in to enhance the already beautiful detailing of the Club. When doors opened to the Horizon room for dinner, guests enjoyed the splendor of gorgeous ivy and candelabra centerpieces. Ivy was also suspended from the chandeliers to create a truly magical effect.

    After dinner, the Think Big Party Band played a mix of classic and new hits that kept the dance floor packed all night long. At the end of the night, the couple was whisked away in a horse drawn carriage. The weekend was truly fit for a king and queen, and we wish Mark and Ivy nothing but well wishes and happiness ahead!

  • A look at our weekend ~

    rustic chic wedding aisle

     

    It's been a busy weekend here at the Eventures office, so we're starting off the week a little differently than normal.  Instead of doing a mood board, we're showing you an actual look of this wedding that we were so excited to be a part of.  Isn't this aisle just magic?  

    Just wait until you see the rest...

  • Looking back to help you plan ahead ~ Part 3

     

    If I could go back in time… I would have chosen a bigger venue.

    I had close to 350 guests at my wedding (maybe more.) it was important to my husband to invite everyone so that they could celebrate with us. I myself would have been fine with a smaller crowd, but it was a lot of fun to share such a special moment with so many. Our church was the perfect size, but the reception venue was a bit tight. Looking back, a bigger venue would have held everyone more comfortably. A wedding venue of that size in Oklahoma can be a little hard to find! It takes a some digging to find the right venue for your guest count. Search through every option and always,alwayslook into the venue’s maximum guest count. If you know you’ll be expecting more than the max…move on until you find the right fit. The extra time spent looking will be worth it in the end!

  • Looking back to help you plan ahead ~

    I’ve always been told not to live with regrets.

    As a wedding stylist where my job is to hand select and offer only the best to my brides, it’s hard not to look back at my own wedding and think of all the “should haves and could haves.”

    However, I can also look back and think, "what would I have done differently for my wedding?"

    Over the next couple weeks, I'll be sharing few thoughts that I hope may inspire you in your own planning journey.

    To start, I wish I would have… chosen an all-white bouquet.

    I loved the colors I chose for my wedding – yellow, coral, pink and vintage blue. If I could go back, however, I would have chosen to keep those colors in the reception décor and not in my bouquet. My wedding dress was my dream dress, and looking back at photos I think a white or cream bouquet would have enhanced the dress more. Just something to think about for your own upcoming wedding! A cream bouquet never goes out of style.
