The couple met while attending TCU, where Sawyer twirled the baton and Drew covered sports for the TCU Daily Skiff (the school newspaper)...you can imagine how their paths crossed! Sawyer had dreamed of marrying in the Robert Carr Chapel since her freshman year, and so this past January, we were thrilled to help bring her dream to life!
The couple had a classic color palette of red and black with touches of silver and brought in the modern element of bling! There were vibrant red flowers everywhere, simply stunning!At the church, the couple provided monogrammed tissues, which incorporated the elegant black scroll that was included on every paper item throughout their event. They also gave their guests "Italian confetti" or five Jordan almonds symbolizing wishes for health, wealth, happiness, fertility and longevity!
The celebration continued at the Fort Worth Club, where guests were welcomed into an opulent lounge space for cocktail hour. Look at all of these gorgeous details! Lush red floral arrangements abounded, and again the ubiquitous black scroll punctuated the decor. Black damask designs further carried that element, and the bling factor had more of a presence. Isn't it just gorgeous?!
The elegant ballroom was filled with round guest tables featuring black and red linens, silver chargers and chivari chairs and red floral centerpieces. The head table was a long, rectangular banquet table running down the center of the space. Red lighting and abundant candlelight added to the romantic ambiance.
The table cards, escort/place cards and menus further carried the red and black color scheme, and the table cards featured quotes from articles Drew had written for The Skiff, adding a fun personal touch. In addition to the fabulous wedding cake (details on that in a moment), the couple offered guests an extensive dessert display along with blinged-out favor boxes so the guests could take some of the treats home.
Truly no detail was forgotten, and the decor incorporated red flowers literally everywhere - including more "S" and "D" forms covered with flowers and delicate orchids hung by ribbons from the chandeliers! Candles and lighting again added to the wonderful atmosphere throughout the entire event space.
We loved this phenomenal 7-tier cake featuring various designs on each layer and red floral and bling accents. And check out that mirror mosaic cake stand and the brooches on the velvet table linen and on the cake itself! Isn't it stunning?!
