Southern Summer Social

It’s time to kick back this summer and what better way to than to throw a Southern Summer Social? It’s pretty common to see beach-themed weddings in states along the coast or a winter wonderland wedding for those that live up north. But here in the south with the crazy Texas heat, we like to keep it fresh and cool with pops of coral, pink, and juicy watermelon treats!

Kate and Kathryn did an amazing job bringing their vision to life and capturing all the beautiful moments. Below are the photos from our styled shoot featuring pops of vibrant colors,  a unique purse bouquet, and makeup done by me @stylingbysyd. This shoot was so different and you can really appreciate the work that each vendor put in. From the watermelon citrus cake to the watermelon cocktails, it’s all in the details! And how cute is having a Bubble Tap Trailer that doubles up as both a bar and a photo booth?!

Special thanks to the amazing team that brought this whole styled shoot to life!

The Big Fake Wedding: Ticket Giveaway!!

The Big Fake Wedding is a unique experience with a vow-renewal ceremony, dinner and drinks, and a dance-party reception. The event offers guests (mainly brides and grooms-to-be) the experience of a real wedding. Everything is carefully currated from the music, lights, food, cakes, flowers, and decor. It’s a perfect opportunity to chat with local vendors in your area to plan your wedding or another special event. I’ve been to three fake weddings the past couple years they never disappoint. It’s a great local networking opportunity and it provides inspiration to plan my own events in the future. I love going to meet new people and enjoy the party with my friends! I’ve teamed up with The Big Fake Wedding to offer YOU a chance to experience the fun as well! (Tickets give you access to the upcoming event in Dallas on 3/23) All you have to do is comment you name and email and you’ll be automatically entered in to win free tickets 🙂 If you don’t win, it’s okay!
