A Swanky Cocktail Party at the Pavilion

We just love changing up an element of an event and cocktail hour is the perfect setting to try something new!

Usually they are hosted in our foyer, but changing up cocktail hour to the Pavilion on a gorgeous Spring evening was the perfect decision!

Todd Events created this gorgeous palette of cream, blue, peach and blush mixed in with the greenery of the landscaping.  It was a dream!

The guests stepped off to the side to get fancied up with bow ties, hats and parasols!  Just imagine your monogram in those roses and you’re on your way to a fabulous start to the party!

 

These blue and white linens were the perfect southern chic touch-we can totally see a cute summer dress with this pattern!

An interactive station can be so fun and it doubles as a favor!  Betty with Scribbles and Swirls created a beautiful magnolia print and then taught the guests how to watercolor their monogram.  It’s always fun to learn something new, why should cocktail hour be any different?!

The blue and white theme was even carried into the the bar facades, vases and custom built lounge while the giant blush & coral arrangements were the pièce de résistance!

 

As guests sipped on some of the best libations from Sourced Craft Cocktails the spring breeze drifted through the trees creating a magic moment.

Who doesn’t love a little lounge furniture?  These pale pink and ivory settings matched perfectly against the greenery of the park and the soft touch of gold brought in just the right amount of glam.

Springing into Weddings at Arlington Hall

The Spring time is an especially favorite time of  year here for brides of Arlington Hall.  Sitting on a 22 acre park lends itself to some of the most amazing images full of gorgeous blooms and lush greenery.  The azaleas and red bud trees are some of our favorites and a peek below and you will agree!  lauren_0095- Sarah Kate Photo.jpglauren_0023.jpglauren_0053.jpg

The Red Bud Trees off the Dallas Terrace are so stunning, if only we knew exactly they were to bloom each year!

Spring Time tents are always so gorgeous with some of the best blooms of the season!  And that elusive golden hour of sunlight is definitely magical in the park!

What could get be more Spring time than magnolia leaves, peaches and mint julep cups?  It’s the epitome of  southern charm!

Ceremonies at the Pavilion are one of our favorites as the sun sets behind this space making for amazing nuptial photos!   Of course the cherry blossoms are always at the top of the list for Spring weddings and the ceremony below is no exception!

Louisiana Meets Dallas in April

This April 2014 wedding was one of the prettiest days in the park and we were so glad beautiful Angelle and dashing Drew chose to celebrate their wedding with us!  The azaleas were in full bloom and the weather was perfection!

The decor was gorgeous with fluffy floral from The Garden Gate and the all important lighting by Beyond.  

The bride’s family is from Louisiana and definitely know how to have a good time!   The dance floor was packed with Limelight Band rocking the tunes, the bride even did the worm!

All the fun was captured by Rae Portraits and even years later, it’s still a classic full of energy and love!

To top off the party, guests cheered on the bride and groom as they hopped in a Pedi-Cab just as Pyrotex fireworks burst into the night sky.

A Fabulous Brunch Wedding

0211HelenLawsonWedding

Last January, we hosted one of the most colorful weddings with an awesome & fun family!   Helen and Lawson had a gorgeous brunch wedding reception with us and 400 of their closest friends and family and they couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather!   Of course the day was executed flawlessly with lead planner, Hannah Kohler of DFW Events at the helm.   The Garden Gate outdid themselves with bright colors, contemporary design and a myriad of blooms in every corner of the hall!   Balloon City decked out this fun clear tent from Sandone and the side tent even had a face painter for the kids, but then our free-spirited bride got her face painted too!   Perez Photography outdid themselves with the fabulous images and one of our favorites is of the tasty Panini Cakes!
