I have loved wedding planning for Debbie + Johnny, and am so pleased to share their beautiful wedding at The Laurel, in Grapevine, Texas with you all! Debbie and Johnny met each other in church, and a relationship quickly blossomed from there. It was long distance for a while as Debbie worked for Emirates, an airline based in Dubai, which was where she lived.
It’s safe to say that being on different continents was no match for the couple as both enjoy traveling tremendously and have trotted across the globe together. After Johnny proposed in Barcelona, both began planning for their wedding in Dallas where their families are at, and Debbie soon left Dubai to rejoin Johnny back in Texas. Because the couple is serious about their traveling, they incorporated a fun questionnaire at their guestbook table, asking guests where they should travel to next.
Debbie knew exactly what she wanted, and was drawn to ivory and pale blush tones which contrasted perfectly against the brown tones of The Laurel. This was accentuated with pops of gold throughout with chargers, geometric shapes, and votive candles. Soft drapery was hung from the wooden beams of the venue and reflected in the fabric on their chairs. There was a sense of fragility in their tablescapes as well, with delicate greenery intertwined throughout. Their wedding favors were hand made pastel soaps that reflected the pale hues of the wedding.
Ultimately, this was a union of two kindred spirits who couldn’t be better to the other. Their guests made sure that the dance floor stayed occupied all night and it was a cheerful celebration all the way to the end of the night.
