Brisa & Andres | Waxahachie, TX Wedding

Brisa & Andres | Waxahachie, TX Wedding

In September, Events by Emerson had the pleasure of coordinating the wedding of Brisa & Andres at Willow Creek venue in Waxahachie. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with this sweet, laid back couple and their wedding was bright and beautiful with weather to match! They each wrote their own vows, and even after the many wedding ceremonies we have had the pleasure of witnessing, I can happily admit I had tears running down my face! Funny, honest and from the heart; Brisa and & Andres rocked it!  All reception decor was handmade by the Bride’s mother and we had the honor of creating the fresh floral arrangements for the ceremony.  Please enjoy some behind the scenes photos from their day below, but first: vendor credits!

Katrina & Andrew | Fort Worth, TX Wedding

Katrina & Andrew | Fort Worth, TX Wedding

Just over a week ago Events by Emerson had the pleasure of coordinating the wedding of Katrina & Andrew in Fort Worth, Texas. Their wedding took place in the historic T&P Station, an absolutely stunning former Texas and Pacific train terminal from the 1930’s. Katrina and Andrew are professional musicians themselves (check out their band here!) so music was definitely a priority to them and it showed! Isaac Hoskins provided an incredibly romantic acoustic guitar performance during the ceremony and Memphis Soul had everyone dancing the night away during the reception.  Flying Pig baked up some magnificent goodies that had guests coming back for seconds and thirds! The photo booth, with it’s custom moon setting created by Katrina & Andrew, and Polaroid instant photos had guests delighted all night long! Check out the amazing vendors that made this night possible and some of my behind the scenes photos below!

Donnie & Bianca | Fort Worth, TX Wedding

Donnie & Bianca | Fort Worth, TX Wedding

Donnie & Bianca brought me on board in February to help them reach the finish line and it was a pleasure to work with this lovely couple! My first event in the Fort Worth area, I truly enjoyed my time in the city! It was interesting the way it felt a little slower and a bit more laid back than the Dallas area. Anyways, I’d love to share with you a few photos and details from their wedding day. I’ll post a new blog when the professional photos have come in. Enjoy!

Saturday, June 24, 2017 we awoke to a BEAUTIFULLY gray and rainy day. I assure you the rain and clouds were the most welcome sight ever as even the briefest activities the previous day had resulted in the need for another shower. Temperature’s reached 101 degrees the day before and to wake up to weather in the 70’s for the wedding day was a dream come true! Especially for those of us doing the loading in and out! The rain stopped by 1pm, right on schedule for an evening wedding and the sun came out, but temps stayed below 85 degrees. It was a beautiful day for Donnie & Bianca’s wedding!

The ceremony and reception took place on Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, in the Presidential Ballroom of the Lone Star Center.  Donnie & Bianca were joined by 100 of their closest friends and family for an intimate ceremony and unforgettable reception! The dance skills of the wedding party provided many highlights throughout the night and was definitely a memory this planner will never forget! Other highlights include the touching speech made by the Bride’s father to the bride and groom that had us all tearing up! Here are a few photos I snapped on my phone. Can’t wait to see the professional photos! I will share them when they come in.

Vendors

  • Bride’s Cake: Guanajuato Bakery Fort Worth
  • Groom’s Cake and assorted sweets: Lesa Alvarado
  • DJ: Chris Kirchmeyer
  • Photographer: Sterling O Photography
  • Catering: 360 Catering

Events by Emerson was happy to serve as planner, coordinator, decorator, florist and lighting tech! I also had the honor of creating their wedding invitation set, coordinating dinner menu, and favor stickers.

Events by Emerson wants to wish Donnie & Bianca a long and happy life together!!!!!

A Bit About ‘Day Of’ Coordination Services

A Bit About ‘Day Of’ Coordination Services

The ‘Day of’ Coordination services that I offer are different than many. ‘Day of’ Coordination is really a misnomer. It’s more ‘Month of’ Coordination as we begin meeting one month before your wedding day. I like to meet 3-4 times, generally once per week, until […]
