/ FROM THE PUBLISHERS /

ARCHITECTING THE WEDDING – THE EXPERIENTIAL FACTOR

We spent a few hours recently at a coffee shop visiting with a dear friend getting married. She shared her mood board for her wedding, complete with color scheme, fabric swatches and detailed descriptions of décor elements that gave us a very real sense for what we could expect to experience at her upcoming nuptials. Soft romantic candlelight around every turn, romantic florals, a muted but moody color palette, food to tempt the senses, dramatic draping, relaxed yet luxe seating, textured linens with subtle patterns, music to match the atmosphere…you get the idea. It was a vivid and visually beautiful reminder of how much weddings have evolved and how carefully they are architected specially for the couple to be celebrated.

It was also evident how much thoughtful and intentional planning had gone into every single design detail and how mindful the planner was of each element from beyond what guests see, to what they would hear, smell, taste and ultimately feel and experience. That experiential factor – how guests FEEL – is what we all want them to remember, right? And it’s certainly no small feat to source the right mix of creative talent capable of making it memorable. Our friend expressed how diligently she studied the work of top creatives before making final selections on her vendor team that would breathe life into the celebration. Orchestrating the right creative mix of talent to pull off a dream wedding can be a daunting task but it’s the very reason Brides of North Texas showcases the creativity of vendors in the local marketplace through both editorial and real wedding features in the magazine + online and every single day via Instagram @bridesofnorthtx. If the gown is the foundation that dictates direction of your planning, you’ll fall in love with Luminary on page 130 — a glamorous fashion-filled editorial shoot featuring dazzling, couture wedding gowns. Then, pick the perfect venue with our Luxe Locations venue guide on page 247 where we give you the inside scoop on DFW’s best wedding venues complete with pricing, capacity and amenities. Get endless inspiration through a variety of Love Scenes starting on page 196, featuring the designs of top planners from across the region that styled the hottest new rental items available. Meet the chefs and catering companies that create extraordinary cuisine with Culinary Creatives on page 175. Beauty pros bring to life stunning looks inspired by the floral artistry of the best wedding florists in the region on page 77. Finally, a collection of over 100 pages of North Texas weddings offer countless ideas and amazing vendor teams that continuously create wow-worthy weddings. Whether it’s picking the perfect gown or venue, sourcing amazing décor or finding the most amazing photographer or planner, we invite you to follow along and let Brides of North Texas help with the architecting of your perfect day.

herself. “He really catered that day to me and the things I love to do,” she says. They got ready for dinner and finally went for a walk down by the water. The photographer he had arranged sent him a text message saying that there was a group of kids practicing karate right where he wanted to propose! Luckily, Grant made it work, and the wait was so worth it. “He surprised me… And I mean [I was] really shocked, so much so that I couldn't stand up!” Claire remembers. Through the tears and huge smiles, Claire said “yes” to spending the rest of her life with Grant. They celebrated with a horse and carriage ride to dinner. After the couple returned home, they waited about a month before they started planning the wedding and hired wedding planner Jade Batangan with Events by Jade. “Having a wedding planner is crucial! Mine saved my life!” Claire says. One of the most important things for Claire and Grant was the wedding venue. They initially thought about getting married in Austin where they met or South Texas, but they fell in love with a venue just a mile away from Grant’s childhood home. The century old Howell Farms in Arlington was serene, full of Texas charm, and catered to Claire’s love for history. The food and band were also important to the couple. They were thrilled to book the InVersion band and had Tex-Mex whipped up by Ft. Worth Catering. On the day of the wedding, Claire and Grant each spent time with their attendants. They had kicked off the weekend with a festive rehearsal dinner the night before at the Shady Valley Country Club near the wedding site. The ladies all got their hair and makeup done together, sipping champagne and sharing stories until it was time to head down for the ceremony. At five o’clock on November 5, 2016, about 200 guests gathered to witness the marriage of Claire McSwain and Grant Robinson. Cream and soft pink flowers topped barrels, and the wedding party’s names were etched in wood. Little flower girls in white lace dresses and floral headbands dropped creamy rose petals down the aisle. The bridesmaids were elegant in floorlength blush gowns, and the groomsmen looked classic in gray suits. The sound of strings let everyone know it was time for the bride’s big entrance. You could hear the crack of the barn doors opening in the wide open space, and everyone’s eyes were on Claire. “I remember being so comforted that my dad was with me, and that made me feel calm,” Claire remembers. Escorted down the aisle by her father, the bride wore an ivory strapless gown by Watters featuring beaded embroidery and a sweeping train. She wore her long blonde hair pulled half back into a beautiful chapel length, circular cut, silk tulle veil by designer Toni Federici. At the front of the ceremony site, Claire and Grant

Christmas tree. After church on Christmas Eve, Jeff and Miranda gathered around the tree with her family and cheerfully opened presents. When they got down to the last box, all eyes were on Miranda. When she opened it, a stunning sparkling ring brought a huge smile to her face. She was so surprised and wasn’t expecting Jeff to propose in front of her family. “I had been going back and forth on what type of ring I wanted up until just a few days before he proposed, so I had NO idea what was going to be inside that box. I was so happy that he just went for it and picked the original style I liked because it is literally perfect to me,” Miranda said. Jeff remembers his nerves calming as Miranda said “yes” to the most important question he’d ever ask. “I'll never forget how it felt when we kissed each other after I put the ring on her finger. The day changed my life,” Jeff says. Miranda and Jeff initially thought they would elope but decided this would be the only time to get all of their friends and family together. With Miranda being from Texas and Jeff from San Diego, they knew a fun soiree bringing everyone together would be the perfect way to start their marriage. They knew they wanted a fun vibe and booked the band and venue first. Brik was a new venue to Fort Worth with all its charm inside a brick warehouse that could be customized just about any way imaginable. They were thrilled to get Fort Worth band Grady Spencer and the Work booked to perform everything from old-time blues to classic country. Music would be a huge theme of the evening as they also booked DJ Cale Bessent. The couple enjoyed a long engagement before their February 2017 nuptials. “The single, most important thing to me was Miranda's happiness. She has a tendency to get very stressed and anxious with big events, especially when they spotlight her, so everything I did was either directly or indirectly to make sure her stress levels were down and she had everything in order,” Jeff says. Everything was in perfect order when loved ones arrived from across the country and met up for the rehearsal dinner to enjoy delicious Tex-Mex and margaritas at Fort Worth staple Joe T. Garcia’s. It was a great way to kick off a very local-focused weekend in North Texas. The following morning, Miranda got ready with her bridesmaids, getting their hair and makeup done and enjoying omelets and champagne. Her dad took Jeff and his groomsmen breakfast tacos and plenty of bubbly. The wedding began with an intimate ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel in Fort Worth. About fifty guests filled the pews for the full Catholic mass. Miranda’s bridesmaids wore crimson and ivory gowns, and Jeff and his groomsmen wore black

chest during dinner, Lauren says it was an easy decision to say yes. “I couldn’t have been more caught off guard,” Lauren said. “In our relationship, I knew where we were. I knew getting married was definitely on the near horizon. That night was a complete surprise.” The surprises continued when Lauren’s parents and Charles’ mom joined the newly engaged couple for dinner. After dinner was over, Charles surprised Lauren once again with an engagement party with their closest friends at The Joule Hotel’s underground bar. “The first part was a big enough surprise that I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement and having our family there… but then the second surprise at the Midnight Rambler was just too much to handle,” Lauren said. “There were lots of tears,” Charles added. The couple spent nearly a year putting together their dream wedding. Since Lauren and Charles were both born and raised in Dallas, the location was an easy choice for their April nuptials. They wanted a venue that was unique and unexpected. The Joule Hotel’s rooftop terrace fit the bill in more ways than one. Not only had the couple never attended a wedding at The Joule, but there had never been a reception at the Eyeball Garden – a private outdoor venue located across the street. “A traditional ballroom wedding can be very nice and beautiful but there is something to be said for the uniqueness and romanticism of having an outdoor wedding at night,” Charles said. “It was pretty awesome.” Having an idyllic park setting was easy for Lauren to determine the décor, and she wanted to create an image from her own imagination. “I wanted to create an atmosphere that was not too traditional but still very romantic,” Lauren described. “White was the only color of our wedding and it kind of created this clean and crisp modern look. It was just a nice clean palette against the backdrop of the city. I wanted something timeless that I could look back on for years and still really love the look.” The bride chose all-white décor and florals while the bridesmaids and groomsmen were dressed in black. Since Lauren was keen on keeping things classic but unique, she decided her gown would be the perfect opportunity to have something tailored to her personality. She decided to pull a risky move and tried on a new dress just two months before the wedding. She had fallen in love with designer Mira Zwillinger’s luxury bridal wear, and found her dream dress in a stunning and feminine blush-pink. “It was just so sweet and so romantic and like nothing I could even dream,” Lauren gushed. “It just felt like it was meant for me.” While holding back tears, Lauren says her mother-inlaw’s words on her wedding day confirmed that her risky switch was the right choice. “When I walked out and my mother-in-law saw me she said, ‘That’s how

during dinner looking at him so many times and just longing for him to ask me to marry him,” Kathryn remembers. She wouldn’t have to wait for long. After dinner, the two got on a boat and took in the Parisian scenery at night. Kathryn was taking video of the Eiffel Tower, and Brandon told her to turn around. He had her perfect ring waiting with the perfect proposal she’d been longing to hear. “I just felt a sense of happiness and peace that I had never in my life felt before. He said the sweetest words to me during the proposal, and I'll hold on to those forever,” Kathryn says. The rest of the Paris trip was a huge celebration of their engagement. When the couple returned home, Kathryn scooped up a handful of bridal magazines and got to work. They started looking at venues and nailed down the date for April 2017. After exploring several options, they booked Marie Gabrielle in uptown Dallas because they just loved the serene setting with all of its trees and romance. Brandon and Kathryn are both artsy and love to engage their creative sides, so they took on several projects for the wedding from painting to woodwork. After a twenty-month engagement, they were truly ready for their big day. The morning of the wedding, Kathryn’s bridesmaids woke her up with surprise gifts from Brandon. “We had strictly agreed on no presents, so this once again, was a complete shock,” Kathryn said. A nod to their remarkable Paris engagement trip, the first two gifts were Louis Vuitton luggage and a Louis Vuitton luggage tag with her new initials. The third present was a necklace Brandon designed. “Every day we were together, he always had worn a necklace that said ‘make the most of the best of who you are,’” Kathryn says. He made her necklace to match his new one that read, “make the most of the best of who we are.” “I cried a lot! [It’s] hard to verbalize how special this was to me,” Kathryn says. Kathryn and Brandon each spent time with their attendants getting ready for the ceremony. Kathryn and her bridesmaids caravanned to the ceremony, while Brandon and his groomsmen took Uber and even made a beer run on the way! When they all got to Marie Gabrielle, it was just as they had imagined. In a little hideaway of trees, Kathryn and Brandon met with their backs turned to each other because they wanted to keep the big surprise. After having exchanged hundreds of cards throughout their relationship, it was time for another one with extra special meaning. They both smiled reading each other’s words and prayed together before the ceremony began. At half past six on April 22, 2017, about 120 friends and family gathered to witness the marriage of Kathryn Calhoun and Brandon Cornelius. The

MEET THE CHEF

Chef Cesar Gallegos I grew up in New Mexico where my appreciation for food started by watching my grandma and mom in the kitchen. They have taught me to uphold my family’s traditions of ageold culinary customs and recipes that have been preserved and taught to me, which inspired me to become a Chef. I have more than 17 years of experience in the culinary industry and received my Culinary Degree in 2000 from the Texas Culinary Academy in Austin, Texas. I have been recognized at both the March of Dimes Signature Chefs Auction and the Texas Legislator’s event for “Best Food and Chef Station.”

TASTY TIP Q: WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE TO OFFER BRIDES AND GROOMS? A: My advice to all the brides is to have fun when choosing your menu and think about what is most important to you as a couple, and what brought you together for this very special day.

I LOVE ALL CUISINES AND LIKE TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX WHEN CUSTOMIZING MENUS FOR OUR CLIENTS.

MEET THE CHEF

Chef Chris Short Chef Chris Short has been cooking in the Dallas area for 35 years and is a true believer in southern hospitality. He has held executive chef positions at Willow Bend Polo Club, The Crescent Court Hotel, The Mansion on Turtle Creek, Bella Restaurant & Stephen Pyles.

TASTY TIP Q: WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR BRIDES WHO ARE TRYING TO DECIDE BETWEEN A SIT-DOWN VS. BUFFET STYLE MEAL? A: Buffet allows for a wider selection for your guests, however, seated dinners allow for your guests to enjoy the full service experience.

I COOK HOW I LIKE TO EAT. I AM WELL VERSED IN MANY REGIONAL CUISINES, BUT COOKING WITH PASSION ENDS IN THE BEST RESULTS.

MEET THE CHEF

Chef Doug Brown A graduate of New York’s renowned Culinary Institute of America, Chef Brown became interested in cooking at a young age by watching his mother prepare three meals a day for his family of nine. At the age of 23, Chef Brown was appointed Executive Chef of the Nana Restaurant in The Hilton Anatole Hotel. Chef Brown received several accolades at Nana and elevated the restaurant to its first five-star rating from the Dallas Morning News. This accomplishment later earned him his first of three trips to the prestigious James Beard House in New York City. In 2003, Brown opened Beyond the Box Café in downtown Dallas, and Beyond the Box Catering Company was developed shortly after.

TASTY TIP

Q: DO YOU SPECIALIZE IN CERTAIN CUISINES? A: Comfort, Food Truck, Asian, Southern, Tex-Mex… we do it all! We offer a large variety of delectable multicultural cuisines.

YOUR WEDDING IS ONLY ONE DAY… DON’T HOLD BACK! YOU DON’T GET A DO-OVER. DON’T BE AFRAID TO PERSONALIZE THE DAY AND MAKE IT MEMORABLE.

MEET THE CHEF

Chef Yossi Ohayon I am a second generation chef. I am originally from Israel, where I trained at some of the top resorts and continued my training in France. I represented Israel and competed with the International Chef ’s Association worldwide. In 1996, I moved to Dallas and, although I knew limited English, I was hired by the Westin Galleria. I taught myself English by visually learning all of the spellings and pronunciations of foods. I went on to work at the Dallas Country Club and the Fairmont Hotel for several years. In 1998, I decided it was time to go out on my own full time. That’s when Culinary Art Catering was born and since then we have just kept growing.

TASTY TIP Q: DO YOU OFFER MENU TASTINGS?

WE LOVE CLASSIC DISHES WITH MODERN TWISTS. WHETHER IT’S IN THE DISPLAY, HOW WE SERVE IT OR HOW WE COMBINE FLAVORS TO CREATE SOMETHING EXTRA SPECIAL WITH MORE OF A CONTEMPORARY EDGE.

THE DISH Seared Red Snapper over Purple Smashed Potatoes topped with Mango Chutney and Blood Orange Balsamic Reduction

180

A: Of course! We suggest attending one or two of our open houses to try different items before signing your contract to be comfortable that we will do something great for you. Foods are seasonal too so you want to have the best representation of what your menu is going to taste like.

EVERYTHING HAS TO BE FRESH IN MY KITCHEN, AND WE COMBINE ALL THE DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES TO GIVE OUR CLIENTS SOMETHING TASTY AND MEMORABLE.

MEET THE CHEF

Chef Fernando Espino Chef Fernando Espino was raised by a family who loved to cook and began cooking at an early age. He never thought of it as a career, but always heard the saying “you should feel happy when going to work,” which is why he decided to pursue it full-time. He began working in catering and then went on to work hotel banquets and restaurants. In the end his heart was with catering, and he was thrilled to join the Macklin’s Catering team.

TASTY TIP Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SIGNATURE FARE? A: My signature dish is a beef fajita ravioli with queso oxaca and a cilantro marinara. My culture is Mexican food, but I love Italian food so I put both together to make something no one has done yet.

I’M ALWAYS HAPPY IN THE KITCHEN. I GREW UP COOKING — IT’S IN MY DNA!

MEET THE CHEF

Chef James Sparks I moved from San Diego in 1995 to begin a new stage in my life. I quickly decided to go to culinary school here in Dallas for five years. I worked in fine dining restaurants and hotels during my apprenticeship. Eventually landed with Gil’s Elegant Catering in 1999 and have designed and executed about 350 events a year ranging from 200 guests up to 6000 guests over the past 17 years.

TASTY TIP Q: WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR BRIDES WHO ARE TRYING TO DECIDE BETWEEN A SIT-DOWN VS. BUFFET STYLE MEAL? A: They are very different types of food service, it all depends on the feel that you want during dinner time. Plated dinners are more quiet and elegant, but station food service is interactive and keeps everyone moving and mingling.

FLEXIBILITY AND CUSTOMIZATION ARE A MUST IN A TIME WHERE THE POPULATION IS MORE EDUCATED IN FOOD THAN EVER BEFORE.

THE DISH A savory Wasabi and Green Tea Macaroon with traditional Salmon Poke and Saffron Cream.

MEET THE CHEF

Chef Jordan Swim I have a passion for creating experiences where people can connect through food. Most importantly, I am a father of two and married to the love of my life, Emily. Together we love to travel the world to experience great food and wine and host family and friends at home. I am proud to be a founding partner of City Squares’ food service training program assisting individuals out of poverty.

TASTY TIP Q: DO YOU OFFER MENU TASTINGS?

A: We pride ourselves in our private tasting experience, this is where we are able to wrap our arms around the planning couple, and allow them to truly “taste hospitality” while we create and finalize the details of their wedding day.

ENJOY THE PROCESS, BE TRUE TO YOURSELVES IN ALL DECISIONS THAT YOU MAKE AND MOST IMPORTANTLY – REMEMBER THE WEDDING IS THE BEGINNING OF CELEBRATING YOUR LIFE TOGETHER.

BEHIND THE BAR

CHRISTINA HENLEY When I moved to Dallas in 2012 the city just dazzled me; and the craft cocktails and hidden bars seemed endless and fantastic. So, I started to learn. Eventually getting hired at a bar that specialized in every classic cocktail but had no menu so the bartenders had to have this tremendous knowledge base. It was a huge challenge, but I was up for it. The other bartenders I worked with were amazing and we each had our own style which balanced the bar fantastically. Creativity behind that bar was a must. Our guests craved new, adventurous flavors. We smoked glasses, infused vermouths, and used frozen melon balls as icy garnishes. That spirit has always been with me. If you can dream it, I want to make it!

TASTY TIP Q: WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE COCKTAIL?

MY FAVORITE DRINK — AS CLICHE AS IT MAY SOUND, IS THE ONE MY GUEST LIKES TO DRINK.

THE DRINKS Creme de Pamplemousse Rose Sparkle and The Elizabeth Taylor cocktail

186

A: I have a lot of fun deviating from classics. Classic craft cocktails are a great place to start because they’re tried and true but we’re lucky in that we have a constant stream of new cordials and spirits to play with. I like to remove one component from a classic and replace it with something new but similar.

When I saw t he emerald sofa from Propmaker, I was immediately

inspired, not only by its color but also by its texture. The sofa’s velvet fabric reminded me of a couc h t hat you might see at a cigar lounge, so I t hought it would be a unique idea for couples t hat are looking to have somet hing dif ferent for t heir guests during coc ktail hour. I wanted t he lounge to feel like we were taking t he inside outside, so we placed a modern f ireplace along wit h a seating area, and Propmaker created a bar for guests to grab drinks, while t heir customized cigars would be made by hand. Sarah Ann Design created a modern program for guests to read during coc ktail hour to help t hem get to know t he bride and groom and learn more about t heir love stor y.

I kept t he color sc heme

simple and classic, whic h can be seen not only in t he flowers but also in t he bride and groom’s attire.

in dif ferent ways! Most brides assume a table is to eat on, but t here are so many ot her uses for a cool white modern table! I decided I wanted to show of f a dif ferent way to incorporate a table, so I styled an altar. So of ten brides are afraid to use color, but fun colors really photograph well and make details pop.

We love these jade green chairs and really wanted to play on the pantone

color of the year - greener y! Shades of greener y and jade, combined with black, white and rose gold, brought this moody, winter design to life. The dinner plate and delicate gold leaf glassware paired perfectly with the Diane chairs and farm table. With lush greener y and blooms and a stunning gown, you can’t go wrong. And how cute are these mini cakes? They would be perfect to add to each place setting as a treat for your guests.

I wanted to use a lot of deep, passionate colors in this shoot. When I

saw the midnight blue couch from Propmaker, I knew I wanted to add pops of plums and marsala in with the pillows and flowers to create a romantic feel. Though these colors are more traditional, I wanted the juxtaposition with the more modern backdrop to give them a more contemporar y scene. I lightened up the look by adding ivor y and peach floral with hints of greener y.

Moody wedding palettes are becoming a huge trend t hat doesn’t

shy away from using atypical seasonal color palettes

For t his shoot, I

c hose deep hues of burgundy, mixed pinks, blac k and gold. To introduce a strong contrast, I used a pop of magenta t hroughout as well. Sage Fine Flowers provided all t he beautiful florals. When she showed up wit h t he magenta flowers in tow, it was love at f irst sight. Those flowers brought life into my design and vision. From t he low boho table, rugs, and candlestic ks, to all t he accent pillows, Coral Lane magnif icently provided it all. The sky was a sultr y and romantic dark grey t hat went per fectly wit h my design elements. I couldn’t have planned it better myself.

The lounge area t hat we created made for a per fect spot to

enjoy a glass of delicious red wine while we watc hed t he clouds go by.
