Wow in your gown with Katherine Bahlburg’s renowned wedding fitness studio When it comes to gown shopping, bridal fittings and honeymoon bikini planning — body conscious brides know, the struggle is real. The upper body is a particular problem area, be it jiggly arms, undefined shoulders or soft backs. However, these concerns shouldn’t hold you back from wearing the gown you’ve always dreamed of (nor from confidently baring it all on your honeymoon). Thankfully, we have just the ticket for toning and tightening your bod in time for the big day. Her name is Katherine Bahlburg and she is the founder and lead instructor of Bells & Barbells. This bridal fitness program is custom fit to each bride — from personal training sessions and meal plans to phone calls checking in on the bride-to-be. And while Katherine’s calendar is overflowing with brides desperate for her private appointments, we convinced her to share a few workout pointers and mealplanning tips. Try these, love the burn, then call Katherine to reserve your spot in her amazing program. KATHERINE BAHLBURG, OWNER

TROUBLE AREA TWEAKS

NOT THIS

Of course, for any exercise to be effective, Katherine says you have to eat right. “Diet is 70 percent of the routine,” she says. It’s why she puts her brides on personalized nutrition programs with meal plans and weekly grocery lists. She loves to suggest healthy swaps one can make—ways to savor foods we all love but in healthier ways. Here are a few of her favorite swaps:

3 WORKOUTS TO GET YOU WEDDING DRESS READY

1

FRESH FRUIT in place of

CUPCAKES

THE TROUBLE AREA: SIDE ARM FLAB THE EXERCISE: STANDING TRICEP KICKBACKS

Bend over at the waist. Using light to moderate hand weights, kick each arm back in an alternating style. Make sure to only move your forearm. This is a great way to isolate the triceps.

Eat fresh fruit with Stevia-sweetened whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings, instead of all those cupcakes and sweets at your showers.

SPAGHETTI SQUASH in place of

PIZZA THE DOSAGE: 4 SETS OF 10 REPS, EACH ARM, DAILY

2

Make a “spaghetti” squash boat with red sauce, ground turkey and low cal mozzarella, instead of stress eating pizza.

THE TROUBLE AREA: UNDEFINED SHOULDERS THE EXERCISE: PLANKS Get into pushup position on the floor and bend your elbows at a 90-degree angle. Rest your body weight on your forearms. Your elbows should be directly beneath your shoulders, and your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold position for one minute.

SPARKLING WATER in place of

SODA Switch out your Diet Cokes for flavored soda water like La Croix (with no sodium).

THE DOSAGE: 1 MINUTE, A MINIMUM OF ONCE DAILY

3

IT’S GO TIME TIME WITH KATHERINE BOOKS UP FAST! YOU’LL WANT TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT RIGHT AWAY. KATHERINE RECOMMENDS SIGNING UP THREE TO SIX MONTHS BEFORE THE BIG DAY.

BOOK NOW AT BELLSANDBARBELLS@GMAIL.COM

THE TROUBLE AREA: SOFT BACK THE EXERCISE: STANDING REAR DELTOID

RED WINE in place of

FLY

OVERINDULGING Pair one glass of wine with a square of dark chocolate and fresh raspberries, instead of over-indulging! Just enough to take the edge off of wedding planning.

Stand with your feet a few inches apart, then bend at the waist letting your arms hang down holding moderate hand weights. Keeping your elbows slightly bent, raise your arms out to the side until they reach shoulder height. Squeeze your shoulder blades, as if you’re trying to crack a walnut, and hold for 3 seconds.

THE DOSAGE: 4 SETS OF 10 REPS, EACH ARM, DAILY

Before finding the venue, Adriana and Victor had never heard of Marie Garbielle. From the street, they couldn’t see much, but after a quick elevator ride, Adriana and Victor quickly fell in love with what they found. It was the perfect venue for their 110 guests. “It was like a secret garden in the middle of downtown,” Adriana said. For her colors, Adriana chose blush, gold, off white and ivory. She picked a theme that was a mix of a black-tie event and a garden party. She wanted their wedding to feel classy and somewhat formal, but still incorporate the venue’s beautiful, luscious gardens. Adriana appreciated her florist Lauren Clinkscales at Backyard Boutique for Lauren’s focus of finding locally grown, in-season flowers, which made the couple’s ceremony feel more unique. During the planning process, one important detail Adriana kept putting off was finding a dress. She knew it would be hard because Adriana lost her mother to cervical cancer about five years ago. The moment she had always imagined couldn’t ever be because her mother Virginia couldn’t be there. “It was very emotional to go look for a dress without having her,” Adriana said. “You see all these shows on TV – ‘Say Yes to the Dress’ – and you see them with their mom and how important that it is. I didn’t want to go through that moment by myself.” Once she was ready, Adriana invited her sisters, her aunt and her mother-in-law to go shopping with her. Surrounded by family who loves her, Adriana found the perfect gown at Bridal Boutique in Lewisville. She picked the Enzoani Justice gown, which features a soft sweetheart neckline, a luminous satin bodice and full tulle skirt, accented with gold and ivory stones and embroideries along the seam. She added a full-length cathedral veil. “Everyone started crying, and everyone knew this was the dress,” Adriana said. “I know that’s still my dress. I love it.” The day of the ceremony, Adriana carried a bouquet with her mother’s necklace, which she wore during her battle with cancer, wrapped around it. As she walked down the aisle, a string quartet played “Beethoven’s 5 Secrets,” a mixture of the OneRepublic song "Secrets" and Beethoven's 5th Symphony. The couple chose not to do a first look, and as Victor and Adriana saw each other, the tears started to fall. “I wanted to see his face when I walked down the aisle,” Adriana said. “That’s my favorite part of any wedding – the groom’s reaction, so I wanted to see that. Of course, I’m the one who cried.”

About six months later, Bryan began planning a memorable and meaningful proposal. First, he connected with a friend who happens to be a jeweler. His friend helped guide Bryan in selecting the perfect sparkler for Andrea. To pop the question, he planned a recreation of their first date that happened to be around their dating anniversary, which means Andrea didn’t expect anything out of the ordinary. Exactly like their first encounter, Andrea and Bryan enjoyed dinner at Lili’s and then went for drinks at Brewed. On this particular Texas June day, the sun was beating down hard on their nostalgic patio. Despite this, they sat at the same table they had on their first date – Bryan had reserved the special spot – but the rays were too hot so they had to change tables, much to his dismay. To carry out the actual popping of the question, Bryan planted “actresses” (friends of their mothers) at Brewed. Their ploy was that they were with a magazine and asking couples to take part in a mock “Dating Game” using chalkboards. (They even visited several tables to truly pull off the ruse!) The second question for Andrea and Bryan was, “What is your significant other’s favorite beer?” While Bryan nervously scrawled, “Marry me,” Andrea was racking her brain trying to think of his favorite beer. Finally, she wrote something and flipped the card just as he was fidgeting with the ring in his pocket while getting on one knee. Taken aback, Andrea excitedly said yes as everyone on the patio cheered for the newly engaged couple. The celebration continued next door at The Live Oak with a surprise party with family and friends – many of whom were watching the proposal from the venue’s rooftop overlooking Brewed! Throughout the following eleven months, the couple eagerly counted down the days to their nuptials. The most important aspects of their special day were keeping things organic as well as providing a unique evening for their guests. To accomplish this, Andrea sought out wedding planner Jen Rios. Jen helped with everything – from selecting the venue to choosing the right blooms. Since Andrea dreamed of being wed outdoors, the couple aimed for the springtime to combat the Texas heat. They fell in love with 809 at Vickery; Andrea and Jen saw the space as a blank, industriallooking canvas. They booked a May wedding and focused on selecting the perfect flowers and, of course, a fabulous gown. Andrea wanted the day to have an earthy feel. She wanted the flowers to give off the vibe that they had been growing in the rustic space for years, while still looking beautiful. Taking that direction, she asked Oh Deery Floral to use a lot of greenery with soft floral touches.

When it came to planning the wedding, the couple wanted a great setting for friends and family to have a fun time. They also wanted everyone to be together the whole day. “Having the ceremony and reception all at one place was important. I did not want there to be a long downtime or break between events,” Mac says. After visiting a few places, they found exactly what they were looking for at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek. Kiley and Mac hired Jordan Payne Events to coordinate all the details of the big day. Music was also very important to the couple, and they quickly booked the Emerald City All Stars. “I planned our entire wedding date around the availability of Emerald City, so they were one of my favorite parts because they are one of the best bands and really know how to keep the dancing going all night,” Kiley says. More than 130 friends and family gathered at half past six on June 11, 2016 to witness the union of Kiley Trent and Mac Kelly. The entire wedding was inspired by a love in the family of jewelry. Kiley’s dad is a jeweler in Dallas. Just like the invitations that looked like agate, the venue was sprinkled with different rock and crystal elements. Guests were able to write “well wishes” for the bride and groom on pieces of agate. Ivory was everywhere. Ivory ribbon cascaded down the wall in thick waves of fabric. Creamy roses crowned tables, and miniature white lamps radiated light from hanging green and ivory floral arrangements. The bridesmaids looked angelic in floor-length ivory gowns, and the groomsmen looked dapper in tuxes with white dinner jackets and black bow ties. The bride was so detailed in the jewelry details that she had custom cufflinks and boutonnieres made for the men. Darling little flower girls sashayed down the aisle in ivory dresses carrying a “Here Comes the Bride” banner. When the doors opened for the bride to make her entrance, everyone turned and beamed. She was stunning. “It is such a surreal moment, and everyone around me could sense just how happy I was. Most people cry or are emotional. While my family and friends were, I was actually beyond happy,” Kiley says. Escorted down the aisle by her father, the bride wore an ivory strapless mermaid gown with sweetheart neckline and tiers of tulle detail on the skirt by designer Hayley Paige. She wore her blonde hair swept up to show off a gorgeous jeweled bolero, also by Hayley Paige. “I fell in love with this [bolero] long before I even found a dress. I waited until a Hayley Paige trunk show came to town so I could try it on and find a dress that complemented it,” Kiley says. Another unique part of the bride’s ensemble

2016 with their second kiss. Her Instagram caption that followed said it all with only two words, “It’s Official!” A few months passed and Josh managed to plan a creative, unforgettable way to propose to his future wife. He knew that Rachel had bought a special dress just for the proposal and, seemingly out of nowhere, called her and simply said, “Wear the dress.” He then picked her up and drove to Delaney Vineyards in Grapevine. As Rachel got out of the car, she saw a row of signs with sweet sayings on them and pictures hanging overhead lining a path to the vineyard. As they walked, Josh told the story of their journey together through pictures. He then led her up to two large wooden doors before opening them to reveal a stunning scene. Flower petals lined a walkway toward a grand piano with white floral arrangements on each side. As they approached the piano, Rachel heard the familiar voice of her 4-year-old nephew and turned to see her closest family members standing on a balcony overhead. Josh’s family was even watching through Skype from their home in Australia. A talented musician, Josh began playing a song he wrote telling the story of their relationship. As it came to an end, he softly played the first few notes of the Bridal March. Standing up, he walked toward Rachel explaining that their journey together had brought them to this moment in time. Bending down on one knee, he said, “Rachel Michelle Lamb, would you do me the biggest honor of my life and marry me?” As tears streamed down her face, she responded with an overjoyed, “Yes.” They immediately began planning a romantic fall wedding. With guests traveling from all over the world, Rachel wanted everyone to experience the beauty of the Texas countryside. The couple opted to be married at The Milestone in Aubrey, Texas, and the reception to take place at the nearby Morgan Creek Barn. The Milestone was without a doubt the perfect spot. The estate-style mansion has plenty of open space for pictures and a lot of natural light making it the ideal canvas for Rachel to create her dream wedding. “I really wanted the theme of my wedding to represent the beauty of nature and my spirit of adventure,” she says. In order to accomplish that, Rachel chose to incorporate a variety of loose, freeform florals with greenery to create a soft, romantic environment. Using the color palette of blush, ivory, marsala, gold and navy, she made sure to balance rich pops of color with lighter hues, adding candlelight to tie it all together. To go along with their wedding theme, Rachel chose an ethereal Ines Di Santo gown that featured pale pink lace. Completing the overall look, ruffled organza with chantilly lace gave the dress a timeless finishing touch. Reflecting on it, she says, “When I

Plan Your

LU XU RY

H O NE Y M OON G ET AW AY with Change Your Latitude

Indulge in the luxury honeymoon of your dreams with the help of travel expert Erin Peters of Change Your Latitude. For a destination that will leave your friends green with envy, Erin recommends winging your way to the breathtaking Maldives. Located in the Indian Ocean and surrounded by gorgeous clear blue water, The Maldives boast clear blue waters, white sandy beaches and the most amazing marine life. Take a look at this 10-day itinerary and let the day-dreaming begin!

AN INSIDE LOOK AT A

Maldives Honeymoon

DAY 1

DAY 5-6

A town car picks you up from your house and takes you to the airport. You breeze through first class check-in and go straight to the lounge. You enjoy drinks and snacks and then make your way to first class.

Take part in one of the many activities the Maldives has to offer: windsurfing, diving, island hopping, picnic lunch on a deserted beach, fishing, dolphin cruise, surfing, cooking classes and so much more.

DAY 2 Land in Dubai! You have a layover, but don’t worry a hotel is included in your package. Relax at the hotel or explore the city!

DAY 3 Catch your flight to Male’, the capital of the Maldives. You are greeted by a guide at the airport and taken to your seaplane for the quick flight and boat ride to your private island resort. Upon arrival, you are met by your butler who will assist you throughout your stay. Your butler takes you to your overwater villa, complete with infinity plunge pool, outdoor shower and rooftop deck. Relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

DAY 4 You may just want to stay in your plunge pool hovering over the clear blue ocean all day but there is so much more to explore. You can snorkel right off of your deck or take bicycle tour of the island. Don’t forget a eat at one of the fresh, organic restaurants at your resort or order room service.

DAY 7 This is your day to relax! Book a couple’s massage on the beach. Once you’re completely relaxed check out a yoga class or be adventurous and try aerial yoga. End the day with a private sunset barbeque on the beach with the love of your life.

DAY 8 Return to Male’ via speedboat and seaplane. Spend the day in Male’, one of the most densely populated cities in the world - explore or maybe do some shopping. Spend the night at a hotel near the airport to catch your flight home.

DAY 9-10 You have a layover in Dubai which could be extended to give you time to explore this magnificent city. Then it’s back home. You are picked up from the airport by a town car and chauffeured home.

Change Your Latitude Travel will create custom itineraries based on your desires and help you plan your dream honeymoon. They can add personal touches and surprises that you won’t find anywhere else. Working with a travel agent ensures that you will have the best experience with the least amount of stress! photos | (c) 2016 Conrad Hotels & Resorts

Making the Cut A look at the artistry behind the highest caliber wedding gowns available at The Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus.

Quality. Details. Artistry. Style. These are just some of the things Neiman Marcus bridal buyer Christina Plumlee looks for as she meets with the top wedding gown designers at New York Bridal Fashion Week twice a year. She often meets brides who question the cost of these luxury designs, but it doesn’t take long for Christina to explain why these works of art are worth every penny. “I look to find designers who use the highest quality of natural fabrics available. When visiting a designer I touch each gown and watch how the fabric moves when worn. A gown should flow naturally and complement a bride’s movements.”

G O R G E O U S

“There are many beautiful gowns at first glance but I am looking for the

extra touch of artistry.” -

“The time it takes to create these masterpieces is what makes them

worth the investment.”

C H R I S T I N A P L U M L E E , bridal buyer for neiman marcus

At The Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus, you’ll find an amazing collection of high-end gowns from the most notable designers in wedding fashion. “There are many beautiful gowns at first glance but I am looking for the extra touch of artistry.” Christina says. Once you’ve found “the one,” your couture gown is custom created just for you. The gown does not exist before you place your order, which is why it takes four to six months to receive. It’s uniquely yours and no two are alike. “The time it takes to create these masterpieces is what makes them worth the investment. Look closely at the embroidery work, beading and detailed patterns and you will see why a gown will take weeks or months to create with craftsman working one at a time to produce the gown.”

the photographer

Enchanting and romantic, Jeff Brummett has carved a clear place for himself and his lovely imagery within the North Texas wedding industry. His affinity for candid and editorial photography gives his work a unique perspective, blending the positives of both classic and modern styles of shooting. As he captures your wedding, he doesn’t just use natural light, but utilizes it; stretching and capturing every sun ray so that its warmth fills the frame. You’ll see quickly that Jeff’s work has a distinctive glow both from the natural light and also the happiness in which he pulls out of his subjects.
