When bride Morgan Azurdia, founder of @moeventco, got married we were so excited to see all the gorgeous details, as Morgan is a friend of the brand, we knew she it was going to be beautiful. The couple got married in our hometown of Dallas, Texas at the gorgeous Rosewood Mansion. Austin and Morgan met when they were 15 in high school in Plano, then Austin moved away for college. After several years passed, Austin had the opportunity to move back to Dallas, “we reconnected the day he moved back! We ran into each other while out with friends and the rest is history!” says Morgan.
I do remember there being one dress she pulled and I just wasn't super into it at first, so of course I tried it on last. I am sure you already know the cliché ending to this story, but yes, that was the dress I fell in love with! The floral appliqués were stunning, I loved how it was blush in color, rather than white, with touches of sage green (again, trying to stray away from the cookie cutter wedding here!), and I love puffy sleeves so we made removable sleeves that matched the dress. It was seriously PERFECT!
THE DETAILS! I do not specialize in wedding planning, but am all about the details in my social + corporate event planning - I wanted to stray away from the classic "cookie cutter wedding" and bring to life a beautiful, yet unique, wedding aesthetic that focused on the details. I wanted to tell a cohesive story from when guests first received their save the dates in the mail filled with dried lavender, to the lattice designed invitation a few months later, to a floral filled arch at the entrance to the ceremony, to my floral dress / mix matched bridesmaid's dresses, to all the details at the reception. Not only was aesthetics important to me, but I wanted the night to be one big unforgettable celebration for us and our friends + family.
Inspired by my favorite brand, LoveShackFancy, we designed and produced a floral filled English/French style garden ceremony right in the heart of Dallas. From there, guests enjoyed cocktails + passed bites around The Mansion's stunning pool (while the team flipped the ceremony space to the reception design), and then guests entered back into the tent and danced the night away under the stars. We had 3 custom bistro food stations with our favorite foods, all contained in branded packaging. The night didn't stop at the reception as we love a late night club night! As we did our "exit" and entered our getaway car, a surprise branded drum line was revealed who guided all guests down the street, up the valet driveway and through the hotel lobby into the after party - "Club Azurdia". We chose to get married in Dallas because we wanted some of the closest people + animals in our lives to be there to celebrate with us - both sets of grandparents who are still with us from both sides of our family as well as our two golden retrievers, Emma + Beasley (they may have stole the show during our ceremony!). It was so special to have everyone we love so much there and it will be a day we will never forget and cherish forever!
