Meet the Hunts



From the first moment I met John and Charlotte it was clear that they were bursting with love for one another. 
They were such an amazing couple to work with and it was a pleasure to help them make their special day, extra special. 




John and Charlotte were married at Hickory Street Annex.


                      




 





 







  




We created a unique wedding for John and Charlotte by combining her glamourous "Old Hollywood" style with romantic decor and contemporary details.

Meet the Batmans


We had so much fun creating the flowers and decor for Anna + Nick


With Hickory Street Annex as our backdrop we created a romantic yet whimsical canvas for this beautiful couple. 
The Bride wanted to keep the flowers soft & feminine, so we used a mixture of Hydrangea, David Austin Roses, Astilbe and Dahlias in a ivory, blush and peach color palette.



















 Anna + Nick wanted to incorporate the playfulness of their last name, Batman, by adding grown up elements that represented the iconic Super-Hero.










and even though it rained, this bride and groom didn't let it spoil their fun.








A BIG thank you to Cristina of Wisner Photo for getting these AMAZING shoots!

We wish them many happy years to come

How-to: Make a Wedding Website

We get asked all the time about wedding websites. 
Our Brides want to know; Should I make one? Are they helpful? What should I put on it? What should it look like? 
Well, have no fear, we're here to help!

In this age of social media and technology, a wedding website can be a great way to get key information to your guests. 
Here are some examples of what to put on your website:
  • Hello! - This is a great way to tell your guests how excited you are about your upcoming nuptials and how happy you are that they are going to be joining you.
  • The Important Information - Let's face it, most guests lose or misplace their invitations. This is a great way to put all the important information (Time, Date & Location) in one place that they can visit anytime. 
  • Directions - Even if you don't think that your venue is hard to get to, the truth is some people are just directionally challenged. Your website is a great place to put a map and any helpful hints so your guests don't get lost. 
  • Travel & Accommodation Information - If you have out-of-town guests or just have guests that want to stay at a nearby hotel so they don't have to drive home, this is a great way to provide travel and hotel information. 
  • Gift Registry 
  • Photos - If you had professional engagement pictures taken, show them off (after all, you paid for them)
  • Wedding Party - Introduce your wedding party! Let everyone know who the special people in your life are and give them a shout-out for helping you put everything together. 
  • FAQs - Any other information that you want to tell your guests but don't want to put on the invitation: wedding attire, wether children are invited, if there are babysitting services provided, wether there is formal transportation, etc...
The most important thing is to have FUN with it. Your website is the first glimpse that your guests will have of whats to come. Make sure it matches your wedding, in style, color & over all look. 

One of our AMAZING brides has graciously let us use her website as an example.
Check out what a great job Kayse & Trey did on their wedding website:



Thanks for visiting - C & K

Meet the Barnetts

Lanese & Brady


It was so wonderful to work with this beautiful couple. 
Lanese and Brady were married on 9.20.14 at The Filter Building on White Rock Lake. 


It was a beautiful outdoor ceremony and even though it rained all day (which I believe is lucky) the Bride and Groom never lost their cool.



 










and as if it knew, the rain let up just long enough to get some great pictures!



        




The party moved inside for the reception, which was full of fun personal touches from the bride and groom. 

 
















Gil's provided a "Milk & Cookies" snack at the end of the night (they were yummy)




And a HUGE "Thank You" to the awesome vendors:
