Wedding Inspiration Shoot at Hickory Street Annex, Dallas, TX


Last week, I celebrated the launch of Davis Detail & Design  and promised I would share with you more from the inspiration photo shoot that provided the website pics.  This summer, I teamed up with some fabulous Dallas area wedding pros for a styled inspiration shoot to showcase our various design expertise and capabilities.  Everyone involved brought their special touches to bring my “Summer Eclectic Elegance” vision to life.  The shoot took place at Hickory Street Annex, a lovely urban Dallas wedding venue in Deep Ellum.  Special thanks to Michelle Meyer for allowing us to shoot in this awesome venue!  If you are looking for a funky, urban chic location for your wedding or next event, check them out!  I also had a blast working with Lora Ayers of Lora Ayers Photography, who did an awesome job shooting these beautiful photographs.

I wanted the colors for the shoot to capture the light, airy feeling of summer, the appropriate elegance for a mid-afternoon wedding and a little hint of modern, funky appeal. The color palette I selected for the shoot was Coral Rose, Silver Cloud and Silver Peony, which were three of  Pantone’s top colors for Spring/Summer 2011.

Here are some of the shots from the shoot:


Special thanks to my lovely model bride, Laura, who wore a beautiful custom made wedding gown provided by Dress My Way.  The white gown was exquisite, with its modest sweetheart neckline and adornment of real Swarovski crystals.


Vanessa Colon, owner of Deceitfully Sweet, provided us with a awesome spread of desserts.  She included delicious treats such as White Chocolate Popcorn, Banana Whoopie Pies, Cake Ball Cones and Tequila Chocolate Truffles.

Brianne Denton of Blue Lotus,  added the special touch with her wondeful floral design of the bridal bouquet and table floral decor.  The bridal bouquet she designed included a combination of white ranunculus, white peony, pink spray roses, white lisianthus and david austion juliet roses.

Doodle Dog Advertising created the lovely stationery for the shoot, including table numbers, invitations and menu cards, capturing the silver and light pink hues beautifully.

Rayven Williams with Beauty & the Blush Makeup and Styling used her hair and makeup look to make Laura look naturally stunning, and Lori Yeary with Lori Yeary Designs provided the beautiful jewelry.  Aren’t those earrings fabulous?

Beautiful centerpiece: I especially like the pink king protea (center)!

To make the look complete, I selected some textured chargers, the white and platinum china, platinum napkins, glassware, flatware and super trendy orange social glasses from Ducky Bob’s.

We had a blast shooting this design and I personally want to thank all of the fabulous wedding pros who helped bring my vision to life!
