Make Your Own Stationery

From the Bride: I printed my own invitations, programs, menus and table card numbers. I purchased a high resolution lace graphic and found 2 fonts that I used throughout the whole design suite. The lace was inspired by my dress and kept with the soft romantic theme I wanted. 

Since the ceremony and reception were at two different locations, and Snug Harbor is such a big place, I decided to make little maps with directions on the back of the ceremony and reception sites. This really helped guests visualize where they needed to go and it showed them where they could find parking.

The Perfect Venue

The inspiration for our wedding was to keep it soft, romantic and timeless. Since I am an architect, I really wanted the venue to be interesting and beautiful. When we came across Celebrate at Snug Harbor, I fell in love! The 40ft tall ceilings, rich wood finishes and Palladian windows of the Great Hall took my breath away. Not to mention the food is incredible!

Sweet Little Favors

We wanted to do a little something extra for our guests after we cut the cake, so our wedding planner put together a beautiful dessert bar. We also used the dessert bar as our wedding favor, giving everyone little to-go bags so none of the goodies would go to waste.

Sky Blue and Gold Princess Wedding

wedding photography @weddingchicks

Florencia + Brian had the difficult challenge of blending their two, totally opposite cultures together for their big day. Yet as you will soon see, all of the details came together flawlessly! With a color palette of gold, sky blue and white, they managed to infuse their wedding with personal details that represented both their Argentinian and Texan backgrounds.

We have SO many more amazing images from Stephanie Brazzle Photography that you just have to see!! Head on over to the full gallery here for more of this sky blue and gold princess wedding.

Colors and Culture

From the  bride: When I first started the wedding planning process I was overwhelmed as I did not know where to begin. But as I started thinking of what the wedding colors should be, the answer and vision for the wedding became clear. I chose white, light blue, and gold for my wedding colors as they represent the colors of the Argentina flag. It was very important for me that our wedding represented both my culture and Bryan’s (a Fort Worth native).

Huge Celebration

When we started planning our wedding we knew we wanted it to be a huge celebration, of not only the love Bryan and I share for each other, but also our love for our family and friends. And that’s exactly what we did. We started off our marriage dancing the night away, celebrating with those who mean most to us.

Some Good Advice

Advice I would have for future brides is to not leave any projects for the last week of the wedding! You will be super busy that week, dealing with unexpected issues and spending time with any out of town guests and family and you will definitely not have time to work on any wedding projects!
