Love Al Fresco – Styled Shoot

The Fort Worth Botanical Gardens was the ideal setting for this whimsical and sophisticated outdoor wedding photo shoot styled by Events by Hala. Set in a beautiful garden beneath the low hanging trees and crystal chandeliers, our team created an absolutely dream-worthy setting that would have any bride swooning.

The purple and gold color scheme with pops of lavender and natural browns and greens was perfect in creating a lavish and luxurious outdoor reception. The farm table with the farmhouse chairs provided by Posh Couture were the perfect rustic complement to all the elements of nature used in this shoot.

To help tie the entire theme together, We + You designed the most gorgeous and creative invitations, menus and floral arrangements. While we were just in love with the earthy tones and serene atmosphere created by the moss table runners and florals, the deep purples, lace tablecloth and ornate china gave this outdoor rendezvous the uniqueness and opulence our team was striving for.

And check out those custom made wood printed menus! Could those have been more perfect for this shoot?!

Our vintage rentals helped complete the entire look of this sophisticated and opulent yet whimsical scene. Our purple vintage couch below the chandelier perfectly showcased the stunning bride who was accessorized by The Bridal Shop at Neiman Marcus and Natalia Issa Hair and Makeup Artistry.

Now we love a good tablescape, but no party is complete without the bar and dessert table!

“Let’s eat Cake!” Amen to that, Sister! We are absolutely blown away by this fabulous dessert table featuring cakes from Sugar Bee Sweets. We’ll take a slice of each, please! Even the styling of this table helped establish a very luxurious and natural feel with the mossy lettering and, of course, the ever so popular naked cakes!

For the beverage station, our vintage buffet was the perfect piece to showcase a lovely display of lavender champagne, fruit water, and whisky.

And how could we forget our ultra chic bar cart outfitted with our favorite antique decanters and our favorite vintage decor?


Like they say, it’s all in the details. And this shoot had plenty of them, carefully crafted to produce a stunning outdoor reception. And thanks to John Christopher Photography, the nuances were beautifully captured and showcased in the Brides of North Texas Magazine. Special thanks to all of our fabulous vendors and team who made this shoot possible!
