April Team Meeting

The Bride Associates Team is always excited about gaining more knowledge to better serve our brides. At our monthly staff meetings we invite a new vendor each month to educate us on their services and products. This month we were hosted by Out of the Garden and they treated us to an amazing evening at their shop! The entire staff at Out of the Garden welcomed us along with Lisa and Chef Andrew from Tastefully Yours, Ruben Reynoso, owner of El Wine Chateau, and Laura Kelsey with Celebration Event Rentals.

We started the evening with a tour of wines from Ruben with El Wine Chateau. He gave us a sampling of a variety of different wines and educated us on their region and how they paired with different foods.

Chef Andrew with Tastefully Yours created us an amazing display of melt in your mouth food. The ingredients he uses are all fresh and the quality is top notch. I think our favorite were the mango and brie quesadillas! Yummy!

Valarie and Donna plus the entire Out of the Garden crew gave us a full tour of their shop including their huge cooler filled with fresh flowers daily. You cant help but feel overwhelmed by the beauty and the aroma. They have a inventory of unique antiques and other creative props that allow brides create a unique setting for the wedding. They are truly a special find and the service they offer each bride is only one of the many reasons that you should bring a bride to them! They make each bride feel special and just like their brides they treated us to a fantatic evening and gave us fun spring goody bags to take home with us!

A tremendous THANK YOU to Out of the Garden, Tastefully Yours, El Chateau, and Celebration Event Rental for contributing to our team meeting and making it fun and memorable. We appreciate all you do for our brides and our team. Here are just a few photos from the meeting. More to come!

"Walk with Me"

There is an emotional moment that a father shares with his daughter during the father/ daughter dance at the wedding reception. It is inherently sweet, the love of a father as he gives "Daddy's Little Princess" to her new husband. Heart-warming and heart-breaking at the same time. Thats why you want the song to be representative of the relationship between you and your father. We recently came across "Walk With You" by Edwin McCain, and let me tell you.... this song will make you cry!

You can get your free download here.

"Walk With You "

I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you
You’ll let go of my hand to say “I do”
He will discover just how blessed a life can be
I know ‘cause all those years ago someone handed you to me
Every step that we take brings back the memories
Winter snows and horse shows and dancing on the beach
I can’t help thinking that I’m the lucky one
You’re still my baby daughter and now I’ve gained a son
I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you
You’ll let go of my hand to say “I do”
He will discover just how blessed a life can be
I know ‘cause all those years ago your mom handed you to me
Don’t miss a chance to put each other first
Now that you’ve vowed for better or for worse
Don’t let the beauty of this life pass you by
In the times of trouble you’ll stand side by side
I’ll take this slow sweet walk with you
You’ll let go of my hand to say ” I do”
I picture a slow sweet walk yet to be
When you’ll take my hand and say “Daddy come see”
Then you’ll know what it felt like
You won’t believe what it feels like
Then you’ll know what it felt like when she handed you to me.
She handed you to me

Backy and John

We were thrilled to work with Becky and John in planning their wedding! They truely are one of the cutest and happiest couples we've had the pleasure of working with!

The ceremony was held at the Marty Leonard Chapel in Fort Worth, while the reception took place later that evening at the Hyatt North Dallas. The couple wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather- so they went to the Fort Worth Japanese Tea Gardens, as well as the Botantical Gardens for pictures between ceremony and reception.
