Berry toned fall wedding // The Brooks at Weatherford // Alex + Ben

Holy rain day!! It has been coming down here in Dallas today and its definitely starting to feel like winter around here. All we want to do today is get comfy on the couch with a blanket and a fire going! What’s your favorite rainy day activity? I’ll tell you what my least favorite rainy day activity is…driving! Stay safe out there, its rough!

Onto brighter and warmer things, let’s revisit this gorgeous fall wedding from last year to take our minds off how cold we are! Meet Alex and Ben! We had so much fun working with this sweet couple who were a referral from our vendor bestie, Silver Lining Events and Co

Alex dreamed of mixed berry tones, lush greenery garlands, mixed gold metallics, and romantic candle light. How much do we love these bridesmaid dress colors!? She couldn’t have picked a more perfect venue, the Brooks at Weatherford is so stunning and the perfect amount of romance and rustic. Can’t get much more rustic than those wooden pillars!

A picture perfect wedding like this is an incredible reflection of the fabulous couple AND their insanely talented vendor line up! Loved working with some of our favs.

Trick or Treat // Halloween Party

BOO!!! Happy Halloween!! How is everyone celebrating tonight? Or are you Halloweened out after a whole weekend in costume? It’s so funny how Halloween has changed over the years. When you’re a kid it’s all about trick or treating and filling a pillowcase with as much candy as you can get your hands on. In college, this holiday can last 3 days and is all about parties, costumes and potions (cocktails). Now that we’re parents this holiday is still about costumes and parties but less cocktails and more candy! We’re taking Hunter trick or treating tonight and I can’t wait to see his little face when he finds out all our neighbors are going to give him candy!

Last year we got together with some of our favs to create the perfect party for both kids and their parents to help everyone get in the holiday spirit. I am so excited to share this TREAT with you, a chic yet gothic pre-party to throw for all your favorite trick or treaters! For more details on this styled shoot, check out my girl Chandler’s detailed blog post over on the h is for

Halloween doesn’t have to be all black and orange, we loved designing these centerpieces with the gold, black and deep jewel tones that bring out the beauty of fall and Halloween. Also, how cute are these “Drink Me” tags? I love the sophistication of the adult table and the playful and spooky kid’s table, those bats! The only people who love a kid’s table more than parents are their kids!!
How cute are these little guys?! Also, I’m now really into a witch with a bouquet! Duh, who needs a broomstick? Bouquets are just as magical if you ask us.

Natural and Green Wedding // 809 at Vickery // Callie + Allan

YALL, its FALL!! Hehe, sorry, I had to that. With October comes fall wedding season is upon is and we have been busy busy! This past weekend we had three weddings and they were all GORG! Cant wait to share these Autumnal beauties on the blog soon! We’ve been so busy we’ve hardly time to take advantage of one of our favorite seasons! Has anyone gone to a pumpkin patch? Baked something? Played in the leaves? We need to catch up!

This week we also got to celebrate a major milestone at R Love, Monday marked 7 years since we’d done our very first wedding. I’m beyond grateful for every bride, groom, mother/father of the bride, planner, photographer, venue owner, family and friend who have trusted us with your weddings. This company that I created in my college apartment seven years ago has blossomed into a full service floral design company designing over 250 weddings and even being featured in publications! It’s been a beautiful journey full of flowers, amazing couples, trusting vendor friends, talented team mates, encouraging friends and family and hundreds of beautiful weddings and events. So THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me and my team along the way and helped in our success story, we wouldn’t be here without you.

Speaking of being sentimental, let’s throw it back today and feature an oldie but a goldie! Our sweet couple from 2015, Callie + Allan! We had so much fun working with this duo. Callie hired Grit + Gold as their wedding planner, which was an ultimate guarantee this wedding would be perfectly styled. Callie owns two catering companies Linguine and Dirty Martinis and Meyer and Sage so with good style and good food, we knew this wedding would be a great one! Callie is a girl after my own heart, she envisioned lots of greenery with her florals to give her wedding a very organic and natural look. We even added fresh rosemary to the boutonnieres as a nod to her love of food and cooking. Who doesn’t love a little personalized greenery!?

Garden Art-Deco Wedding // The Carlisle Room // Michaella + Joe

Happy hump day and helloooo fall (ahem, 87 degree weather). Now that there is a slight crisp to the air, I can hop on board the fall train! What are your favorite ways to celebrate fall? Completely unrelated to fall but equally as desirable, here’s Michaella and Joe’s super gorgeous wedding from June of this year.

Michaella and Joe had a beautiful garden art-deco vision for their summer wedding and you can’t ask for a better venue than The Carlisle Room.  The stunning historic event space in Dallas features marbled columns and original 1930’s detail throughout which was the ideal art-deco backdrop for this sweet couple.

When we first met with Michaella she described to us her vision of topiary styled tall centerpieces, geometric terrariums with greenery and blooms and gold details. We went to work to create an indoor garden feel and we just love a bride who loves her greenery! We just love those geometric terraniums, they really help give that art-deco vibe to the tablescapes. We had a lot of fun playing with the different flowers to place inside each one and just love how those roses look framed in there.

Now holy swoon over those bouquets, right?  I can’t get over how well the blush, mauve and white bouquets popped against the mismatched bridesmaids dresses. How gorgeous are those floral printed dresses? Also, seriously obsessing over Michaella’s wedding gown with the delicate lace caplet sleeve! This bridal party is serious squad goals!

It was so lovely working with Minted Artistry and Beth Erin Photography to make Michaela + Joe’s day perfect!

Blue and White Vase Centerpieces // The Marq Southlake // Hannah + Austin

Helloooooooo flower friends! How’s everyone’s Wednesday going? Also, when is fall? We are burning up in Dallas today! Let’s chill out and swoon over this wedding for a minute.

Hannah was one of the sweetest and most easy-going brides we have ever worked with. Not only that, she came to me with an incredible vendor team which made working with Hannah and Austin on their wedding such a dream!  I was immediately obsessed with her calm, cool and collective-ness.

Hannah’s sweet mother, Leslie, owns an antique booth and had so many beautiful blue and white vases we could incorporate into the ceremony and reception. Hannah envisioned a blush pink, white and green color pallet to pop against the blue and white dishes and vases and we just love how it turned out! So feminine and traditional with the mix of uniqueness.

Speaking of an amazing vendor team, their talented wedding planner hand lettered all the table numbers on dishes, how cute are those? Love how they incorporated the dishes throughout the reception. Also, who doesn’t love a candy and coffee bar?! YUM

We loved this sweet couple and hope you enjoy these gorgeous photos from Nicole Berrett Photography
