As we prepare for another wedding at the River Oaks Country Club, we can't help but share Kate and John's wedding at South Main Baptist Church and the River Oaks Country Club from last June. Photos courtesy of the insanely talented Dana Fernandez Photography. Planning by Sparkle & Shine Events.


Kate's details for her big day perfectly set the tone for how the day would magically unfold. With gorgeous shoes from Jimmy Choo and earrings and a headpiece from Maria Elena Headpieces. The always lovely ring box from The Mrs. Box adds the perfect touch, complete with the Bride's new last initial. We believe that capturing these details are pivotal and Dana always does a wonderful job utilizing loose florals to elevate the photos. Like the gorgeous capture of the couple's wedding invitation from Bering's!


When it came to the River Oaks Country Club, we know that less is more. We utilized one of our large white urns for the entry space featuring pale bush peonies, escimo and quicksand roses, and lots of greenery! We then created similar arrangements for the head table. Rentals for the day were provided by Aztec Events & Tents.

Blue berry branches, our favorite mauve, quicksand roses and peonies were found throughout the rest of the room in our compote arrangements. Additional reception vendors include the wedding cake and groom's cake from Who Made the Cake!, entertainment by Chinatown, and both a silhouette artist, Silhouettes by Cindi, and live painter, Blaire Brown Art!


For Kate's bouquet we wanted to enhance the beauty of her Oscar de la Renta gown from Joan Pillow Bridal Makeup by utilizing Bowl of Cream peonies and white Ohara roses. These lovely floral varieties always delight and we love to use them! For the Bridesmaids, we accented their grey Jenny Yoo dresses with shades of pale blush and nude. Hair and Makeup were provided by Hey Lovely Makeup.


When it comes to our Maxit grooms, we love utilizing a fluffy and cheery ranunculus boutonniere. Something with character and texture to enhance his Ralph Lauren suit. For the rest of his guys we utilize spray roses to elevate them for the special occasion. 


We also love when our Maxit couples chose to exit their reception to a rose petal toss! It is a classic touch that can be captured so perfectly! When else would you have the excuse to throw a handful of rose petals? We loved enhancing Kate and John's lovely day and are very excited to be back at the River Oaks Country club for another round soon! Cheers! XOXO.
