If you’ve ever considered a winter wedding, this one – in shades of ivory, black and white with modern details and vintage flair – is absolutely sure to inspire you! Caroline and James said “I do” in the midst of the infamous North Texas winter freeze, but inside, their day was nothing short of warm and magical. Laning Photography documented the day perfectly, capturing all the details designed by talented DFW wedding planner Artisan Rose Event Co. Guests were welcomed to the reception by a stunning black seating chart and moody, intimate tables with modern black accents as they enjoyed dinner and dessert from Vestal’s Catering and then accommodations by Hotel Crescent Court. The bride opted for an understated aesthetic with vintage flair, including a sheath gown from Bridal Boutique and cathedral veil from StarDust Celebrations. Paired with their vintage getaway car, ivory roses and baby’s breath galore, this wedding perfectly married traditional and modern!
From the bride on how they met (the cutest wintery story for a winter wedding couple!): “James and I met at a Christmas party in 2016. I didn’t expect to meet anyone new, let alone my future husband, so I was sporting what was basically the tackiest Christmas sweater known to man. Fortunately for me, James loved it. Later, there was a white elephant gift exchange and we both ended up choosing each other’s gifts! We met as we exchanged what were the two most random gifts at the party, and we hit it off instantly. He invited me to yet another Christmas party the following weekend, but it was one that he was set to host at his house in Dallas. There, I met more of his friends who are like family to me now, and whose wives are some of my best friends and bridesmaids in my wedding. After one of the most fun nights, James told me that he was starting to get feelings for me and wanted to get to know me more. We went on our first date shortly after and the rest is history!”
