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.

Our first Venue Spotlight! The Riverwood Barn and Amphitheater is located in Durant, Oklahoma. It’s actually East of Durant, more in the Blue area, right off Hwy. 70. There is a barn, house, and outdoor amphitheater area. Everything is brand new, as of the writing of the blog, there have only been a few weddings there. The house contains both bridal and groom suites, with a central kitchen area. The barn has four large roll up doors, two on each side, and two back rooms for storage, food prep, etc. There is also a small loft area for a DJ, bouquet toss, etc. The outdoor amphitheater is a short walk down the back lawn and set against the forest backdrop. The stone seating and altar area make for a beautiful ceremony setting. The best thing about this venue is the space! Here your guests have room to move and mingle across multiple settings. And there is even a firepit! You get a 3-day rental period, Friday-Sunday, so plenty of time for setup and cleanup.
The day I took these photos they were still cleaning up from a reception inside the barn, so I didn’t take many photos of the inside. Enjoy! It is a beautiful venue!
