Working with Claire and James was a dream for our wedding planning dynamos. Claire, who is truly a beautiful person inside and out, came to us with a definite vision of a classic, elegant affair with an English garden feel.
Our team went to work creating a gorgeous design that included boxwoods, lattice and garden arches, all set to transform the Four Seasons Resort.
In addition to the formal garden atmosphere, Claire tasked us with finding ways to make the reception space creative, romantic and interesting.
We mixed tables to include banquets, rounds and banquettes.
Lush floral arrangements abounded and soft candles glimmered off of the subtle bling accents of the napkin rings and table linen overlays.
Spectacular lighting and elegant chandeliers completed the awe-inspiring ballroom.
The cakes were simply stunning, true works of art.
James is a geologist so the talented Lauren at Fancy Cakes created this amazing replica of a geode!
Also tying into the geologist thread were the favors: lovely soaps fashioned after several different types of gems, each with its own scent unique to that style.
The wonderful evening was rounded out by the TCU Fight Song (honoring the newlyweds’ alma mater), photo booth fun and a flutterfetti sendoff of the couple in the Four Seasons golf cart!
Claire was such a delight to work with! Because she had a clear idea of what she wanted, she was quick to make solid decisions when presented with options and move onward to the next task. When the entire vision came together on Claire and James’ wedding day, the result was simply stunning! Here are more beautiful photos (from the amazing Carter Rose at f8) – see if you don’t agree.
