A Fabulous Brunch Wedding


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!


Decking The Hall For The Holidays

It’s most wonderful, and busiest, time of the year!


While we couldn’t possibly post pictures from every single fabulous event we’ve hosted this season, we’ve picked one of our favorites to share!

Of COURSE, it’s beautiful and breathtaking and ethereal and beautiful because it was designed by TODD Events. Always a pleasure!

Haunting of Arlington Hall

One of our favorite parts about being in the events industry is the creativity that walks through our doors. We have the honor of working with designers and coordinators who are the creme de la creme of their field and they continue to blow us away with how they can transform our space.

This year, we had the privilege of working with Tom Addis of Tom Addis Productions on an extravagant, over-the-top, beautiful, amazing Halloween party. Tom and his team took two days to turn our southern space into a haunted home. Check it out below!

Charlotte + Mark

Congratulations to Charlotte and Mark!

This couple holds a special place in our hearts. They were two weeks (TWO WEEKS!) away from their beautiful beach wedding when hurricane Simon ripped through Mexico’s coast, rendering their venue without power. Since all of their vendors were based in Mexico, the couple had to move quickly and plan an entirely new wedding in TWO WEEKS (in case you missed it the first time).

We were thrilled to see Charlotte’s shinning face come through our doors. She calmly explained her situation and we were more than happy to help her pull off the nearly impossible.

Thankfully, we have some friends in the biz we could call on to help out and we pulled off a great wedding!

Congratulations, again, to Charlotte + Mark.
We wish you both all the love and happiness in the world!
