Our next wedding took place a the gorgeous White Oaks Ranch located north of Dallas, Texas. The lovely couple, Callyn and Jase, tied the knot surrounded by their closest friends and family in an outdoor wedding ceremony. The ceremony was then followed by a festive celebration in the large pavilion at the White Oaks Ranch. Coco Fleur Events designed this southern event to perfection creating amazing florals that complimented the lace and burlap decorations beautifully.
On the Venue:
The White Oaks Ranch is a spectacular property located about 50 miles north of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Along with beautifully manicured lawns, the White Oaks Ranch also has a pavilion that can accommodate up to 300 people. This 350-acre property is an ideal venue for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and so much more!
From the Bride:
I desperately wish I would have walked the venue before the guests arrived to swoon over the details. I spent hours dreaming up ideas and thinking of how I wanted to piece the decorations together and unfortunately, didn’t get to see some of them. Majority of the details I’ve seen only through photos. Although the photos are beautiful, it is not the same as being able to see all my dreams come to fruition in real life. The guests had to walk a specific trail from where they got out of their car to the ceremony and then to the reception and I really wish I would have made that walk myself.
One of my favorite memories of the wedding planning process was the constant communication with my parents. They truly went above and beyond to make the wedding everything I dreamed. My mom spent countless hours scouring the Internet, making phone calls, and sending e-mails. My daddy’s specialty is cabinetry and he designed (and painted) this wooden post card holder that held our guest’s table assignments. Their unconditional love, support, and sacrifice during the wedding planning process means more to me than I could ever express.
Advice from the Bride:
Most important wedding planning advice: HIRE WESLEY AND EMMA TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR DAY! Don’t skimp on photography or a wedding planner (even if it’s just day of!). Jase and I love reliving the wedding through our photographs and believe they were worth every penny.
Trust your gut feeling and instincts. Don’t seek advice from too many people because then you’ll be even more confused. Don’t hesitate to ask for help either, people want to help and you’ll have those memories with them for a lifetime.
