Wedding Fireworks!

I love Fireworks! The Fourth of July is one of my Favorite Holidays just because I get to see a great Firework show! We always like finding vendors that can make our Brides happy and I have found one of the best for a extra special touch for any wedding or event! David with North Texas Pyrotechnic offers amazing Fireworks options for couples on their wedding day!

Fireworks are the perfect way to add that extra sparkle to your wedding. With packages starting as little as $800, they are surprisingly affordable. North Texas Pyrotechnic is licensed, insured, and able to obtain a permit in any city at almost any location. Fireworks can be displayed on rooftops, golf courses, lakes, and even indoors. Before talking with your venue, give them a call for a complimentary consultation."

Elizabeth & John

Elizabeth and John got married on March 28th at the The Tribute! We really enjoyed working with them and wish them the best in their new life together!

The Tribute is really one of DFW's best kept secrets! We love working at Erin, Ashley and the staff at the Tribute. They are just fantastic to be around and always go above and beyond! The Tribute in the Colony is on a beautiful golf course, the views are stunning and it offers so many unique features - one of my favorites is the delightful bed and breakfast suites! Its the perfect place for a weekend wedding with family and friends!

We were so lucky to start of the wedding season working with Erin Kathleen and her assistant John. After every wedding with Erin Kathleen I can't wait to see the photos because I know they will be beautiful and really capture the energy, emotion and love that happend during the wedding and reception. She is truly an amazing photographer, a great friend and boy does she make my life easier! Here are just a few of our favorite shots:

We really enjoyed working with Shannon and Robert on thier beautiful wedding. Jessica Gunter, one of Senior Wedding Planners, was her coordinator and Dara Winn our Executive Floral Designer created all the floral design for the wedding. This was the first time we have worked with Nine Photography and WOW! They do great work and we cant wait to see more of thier talent with more of our brides! This wedding was held at the unique Fort Worth Community Arts Center and was a memorable venue for all thier guests!

Christmas in July

Christmas in July seems to be all around me. Every where I turn I see something for "Christmas in July". I asked myself this morning, what is this all about really? So I turned to the most "reliable" source Wikipedia and checked it out.

Wikipedia explains that "in the northern hemisphere during the summer months the weather becomes increasingly warm and many people crave the atmosphere of cooler temperatures, gift giving and holiday spirit. (Yes we do!!) To satisfy this, some people throw parties during the month of July that mimic the holiday of Christmas. The features of Christmas in July include Santa, ice cream and other cold foods and gifts."

In the Spirit of Christmas in July, we would like to offer gifts! Bride Associates would like to give $100 off any package including our Faith, Hope and Love planning packages, delicious candy buffets, popcorn buffet display, bachelorette party planning, and our concierge services!

When I wrap gifts I love to put those cute embellishments on along with the ribbon! Maybe a pretty silver ornament or a special candy cane! So as an added embellishment on our gifts, I would like to add that the Bride Associates Design Team would like to give away a free bridal portrait bouquet, a free honeymoon suite decor package, or a free tablescape mock up with any floral package booked! We love to give gifts and hope these will be a nice 'gift' on every brides budget this "holiday season"! Merry Christmas in July!
