Outdoor Estate Wedding | Courtney & James


Nov 11, 2018

In Texas, the motto is certainly “go big”.  Courtney may be from Wisconsin, but she’s found her heart in Dallas with James, and after seeing what she designed for their wedding day, it’s clear she is actually a Texan.  Everything about this wedding is big – big in dreams, big in experience, big in scale, big in design, and big in joy.  It’s clear Courtney isn’t one to hold back when it comes to design, beauty, friendship, or love.  I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that comes from her late Mother, who inspired many of the day’s sweetest details.  Creamy pastels adorned the larger than life wedding party that even included the family dogs.  A clearspan tent, perfectly appointed by Shully’s Catering and Events with the custom floral chandeliers and design my Jane Kelly floral, was straight out of Courtney’s design boards.  No detail was overlooked.  Trees hung with sweet candlelit arrangements, pathways were marked by bohemian style banners, cocktailers were a buzz about the Wisconsin salute cheese “cake”, champagne flowed in vintage press green glasses, Courtney and her sisters raided their Mom’s jewelry collection to wear for the day, the gazebo played host to a cigar roller late into the night, tiny ghost chairs gave away seating assignments, festooned horse-drawn carriages escorted guests up the long winding drive, champagne flavored candy waited for late-night cravings.   Oh, I could go on and on, but you should just scroll and see for yourself.
