Julie Roberts Photography along with Ruffles and Rouge Events created this Deco inspiration shoot with a mint, gold and champagne color palette that adds just the right amount of warmth to a winter fete or a little bit of cool to summer nuptials. We are head over heels about that dessert table backdrop!
It’s that time of the year again, and we still can’t believe it’s been exactly a year since we last caught up with each other. So we wanted to pause our gears for a second to ask you how we are doing, and how we can continue to bring you inspiration for the year ahead. We want to hear your feedback on what works for you and what doesn’t. What is it that gives us the privilege of having a few minutes of your time everyday, and how we can continue to make Ruffled home for you. The survey is short and sweet with just 16 questions and we’d be super grateful if you could answer them all.
To thank you for your input, we are giving away one $50 gift certificate to the online store of your choice (hello international readers!) to a lucky participant. To be included in the drawing, just leave your name and email address at the end of the survey. If you prefer staying incognito you can skip this part. We will leave the survey open till next week and announce the winner next Friday on our Facebook page.
We always get a little giddy when Apryl Ann Photography pops by, always bringing in one gorgeous wedding after the other. This whimsical soiree is full of handmade touches, representing the groom’s job as a Naval Aviator and the long distance relationship between him and his bride, Christy. So to celebrate their numerous letters across the globe, they wanted to have travel and correspondence elements incorporated in their wedding.
Christy and Ryan are high school sweethearts about to embark on a life of travel and far-away correspondence due to the groom’s job as a Naval Aviator. Their life will be filled with postcards, letters and airplanes, all of which were apparent at their travel themed wedding on June 9, 2012. The bride and groom are both old souls, and vintage touches were spotted throughout the ceremony and reception.
The groom proposed at Hickory Street Annex, which made it easy to decide on a wedding reception venue. Both are Dallas natives and wanted to be married close to their families. The bride and groom were married at East Dallas Christian Church where the bride’s parents and grandparents were both married. Reception followed at Hickory Street Annex.
The bride has worked as an assistant wedding planner in both Florida and Oklahoma and planned her own wedding down to every detail. Since she was planning the wedding from afar, spreadsheets quickly became her new best friend. The couple moved twice during their engagement, but thankfully, the planning process was both smooth and fun. It was easy to find great vendors that all worked well together after stumbling upon Apryl Ann Photography and The Bell Jar.
Paper flowers and stationery were the showstoppers of the wedding. The bride worked hand-in-hand with ULuckyGirl to create the custom wedding suite including an invitation booklet, stationery set favors, Passport photo books and place card wooden airplanes. The bride’s love of handmade goodies and vintage objects were seen throughout the décor. Etsy was a big contributor at the wedding- the bride purchased hundreds of handmade flowers, the veil and painted TOMS shoes from Etsy.com.
