Chelsea knew exactly what she wanted and had a grand vision of transforming the Carriage House of Lone Star Mansion into an all-white venue through drapery. This venue holds a lot of history and aligns perfectly with what Chelsea had envisioned for her wedding with now husband, Jay.
She kept her colors to a minimum by focusing solely on white and a pale, powder pink, with accents of silver and clear glass. This is a bride who knows what she likes and it made designing for her pretty straightforward! When I first met Chelsea, what struck me was how wonderful her relationship was with her mom, and the mutual respect and love both had for the other. Judy was present in all the meetings and was there if Chelsea needed her input and advice.
When selecting items for their head table, mirrored chargers were selected. I don’t often see these used in weddings and it helped elevate that table immediately. Those were complemented with clear glass votives and centerpieces of white and pink which made the table stand out all the more.
They had custom-made donuts in three designs on an acrylic donut wall with a banner that was also specially created for the occasion. That was a highlight for many guests and the wall constantly had to be refilled, especially once word got out how delicious they were!
It was a day filled with emotions, from happy tears to raucous laughter. Jay was just so excited to be marrying Chelsea, and there were smiles throughout from ceremony to reception, especially when the best man gave his speech. I have not seen a room laugh so much before and he got a standing ovation at the end!
