Color Splash: Winter Wonderland

The song goes, “oh the weather outside is frightful…” but we kind of like this chilly, stark weather because it makes for great inspiration! Why not go with a Winter Wonderland theme incorporating the icy blues, silvers and whites of the season? Lots of candles, cool lighting, some ice-inspired bling and striking branches included in the décor all culminate into a stunning event. Here are several fabulous ideas to get your creative thoughts going! And bundle up, 'cause baby, it’s cold outside!

Featured Friends Friday: f8studio

Vendor name/company: Gary Donihoo, f8studio

Service(s)/Product(s) offered: photo-video-photoBOOTH

How did you get started in the wedding industry and when? I photographed my first wedding in 1982, (I was a kid) and shot architectural till the 90s (my dad was an Architect). My clients started asking about weddings and boom, instant biz.

What sets you apart from other vendors? We have been in Dallas market longer than most; we are not trendy, we shoot timeless images. If you look at 50-70s life magazine photos, sometimes you can’t tell what year it was, that’s our goal.
What do you do for fun besides weddings? Travel, museums, food…we are all film buffs, especially documentaries. I see about 2-3 documentaries a week.

Why do you enjoy working with wedding planners? From a photographer’s standpoint it's nice to be hands-off on the wedding day. Brides look to us for help with organization when no planner is on hand, which takes away from what we do – capturing emotions.
What is your favorite thing about working w/ a StarDust Celebrations planner? Smooth, fun and yet professional.

Do you have any funny or memorable stories you can share about working with one of our planners? I'll have to think about this one.

What is the best single piece of advice you could give to brides? Every wedding day has its own story; yours will be unique. Rain or shine you will still get married, have a joyful day. The wedding day is not only a union of two people but a union of families, friend and even vendors; after the wedding is over I will always be the guy that documented your day with photographs. Great images last generations, and that gives me a warm feeling. When looking at old photographs I often wonder about the other side of the picture, the photographer who made the image.
Check out the amazing images captured by all of f8's talented photographers:

Trend Alert: Food Truck Late Night Snack

If you’ve been noshing around the downtown areas of Dallas or Fort Worth lately, you’ve probably enjoyed the super-cool food trend that has been rolling into the area over the past year – the food truck! It’s about time this fun and convenient idea cruised into North Texas, and we are thrilled that an army of cuisine trucks have been offering a great variety of delicious food including pizza, tacos, burgers, fried pies, grilled cheese, barbecue, Asian, healthy gourmet and more!

While all of this sounds good and yummy, “What does this mean to me as a bride?” you might ask. Well, some of these fabulous mobile catering units are available for events! What a fun and unexpected late-night snack for your guests! This would be especially great to incorporate as a transition between your send-off and your after-party! By that time, your guests will need to refuel to help keep the party going.
A few of the companies that we know do events are Ruthie’s Rolling Café, Mainstream Fish Camp, Crazy Sisters, Red Jett Sweets and Green House, but many more are getting into that option; contact your truck of choice to see what you might be able to work out!

Happy planning!
