Do it yourself bars are such a neat idea. Everything placed out, ready for people to mix up their own drink. Here's Sunday Supperstake on a Martini bar - loving the rustic italian feel they have going on with the simple tablecloth, almost industrial decanters and pops of silverware. It makes me want to make a little Martini for myself, and I don't even drink Martini's!

Ashley & Derek: Revisiting Romance

Ashley and Derek are a drop-dead gorgeous couple! They are truly beautiful both inside and out and it was an absolute pleasure to be a part of their big day. Stephanie Williams worked her magic as their photographer and captured their sweet, soft and very romantic night.

KLF Florals was responsible for creating all of the soft and elegant flowers. We fell in love with Ashley's bouquet which perfectly combined all of her colors of black, white and soft pinks.

Do you see what we are talking about? Ashley looks like a model straight out of a magazine in these pictures. Her dress was an Anne Barge couture gown that looked like it was made just for her.

Etsy seller, Jen from Pin Cushion Princess, custom made this ring pillow for the couple in their custom colors. I love how the fabric rosettes created a beautiful texture.

This shot is one of my favorites! They look stunning! The tree wrapping around them is unlike anything I've ever seen. I think most of these pictures speak for just enjoy!

Ashley and Derek and three wedding cakes, including a brides cake with extremely delicate sugar flowers and a grooms Texas cake! Sweet Cheeks Bakery really did a great job of creating these tasty confections for the couple!

A calligrapher was used to hand write place cards for each of the guests as well as the escort card lists.

The runners on the table were actually paper! The unique pattern was a beautiful backdrop for all of the flowers and the lovely invitation. :)

Toward the end of the evening, the gentlemen were smoking cigars and the dancing was in full swing. Possibly one of my favorite swoon-worthy moments from a wedding came when Ashley was seated in a chair on the dance floor and all of the men sang "My Calendar Girl" to her acapella. It is a family tradition of theirs and definitely had all of the guests singing along.

The sparklers were the perfect ending to the perfect night. Ashley and Derek, you two are one handsome couple :) We know your future will be filled with love and happiness! Thank you for allowing us to be part of it :) And thanks again to Stephanie Williams for such beautiful pictures! As an extra special treat, head over to 100 layer cake for highlights from Ashley and Derek's lovely wedding :)
