Dreaming of the perfect way to blend rustic and industrial for a wedding day? Kristin and Jimmy figured out the perfect combination for their rustic mauve wedding at Hickory Street Annex! They fell in love with the industrial venue after one visit and used the space as inspiration for their joyful summer flowers by Everly Alaine Florals, with the sweetest details inspired by the bride’s dress! Their stunningly sweet wedding memories came to life thanks to Laylee Emadi Photography and planner Jade Batanagan!
Kristin fell in love with her dress as soon as she found it at Bridal Boutique Lewisville.
My dress was from Bridal Boutique and I loved the lace and the full skirt but the part I most fell in love with was the pearl belt. I just remember looking at the pictures of all the dresses after visiting the different shops and I kept looking at that dress and thinking that it was “me”.
Destination floral designer Everly Alaine Florals helped them bring their floral dreams to life for the bride’s summery bouquet of peach, pink, and cream with touches of blue from forget-me-nots!
Our wedding flowers were exactly what I wanted! We were looking for summer blooms of peach to go with bridesmaid dresses and at the last minute I asked for some touches of blue to be thrown in! I felt like it really brought in that summer feeling. I love that Everly Alaine used unique types of flowers that added texture to the design and no one bouquet was the same. Our big flower splurge was the arch for our ceremony which was to die for! I remember being overwhelmed by it’s beauty when I finally saw it!
Kristin found the perfect color and breezy style for her bridesmaids with the online shop at Show Me Your Mumu – the rustic mauve color she picked felt like a fresh pick on blush, and she let her bridal party pick their own dress style in her color palette!
Groom Jimmy knew he didn’t want traditional black for his wedding day suit, but The Black Tux was still the right choice! He found a light gray suit that was perfect for their summer wedding and added navy blue ties for contrast.
Kristin and Jimmy made sure to include remembrances for their loved ones who couldn’t be with them for the wedding day.
My father passed away unexpectedly a little over 2 years before the wedding. It was hard coming to terms with the fact that he wouldn’t be walking me down the aisle so I really wanted to find special ways to include him in the day. We were looking at a few dates fo the wedding and ultimately decided on that weekend because it was also Father’s Day weekend, so we thought it would be a nice acknowledgment of him and also bring us together with Jimmy’s dads and my uncles. I also had one of his favorite shirts cut into a heart and sewn into the skirt of my dress by Altered for the Altar. They were so understanding and even gave me the shirt back with a filled in heart from where the cut it out. It was really special because when it came time for family photos, I was able to lift up my dress to show the heart and it really felt like he was there.
Both the bride and groom fell in love with their venue, Hickory Street Annex, after Jimmy searched for industrial wedding venues in Dallas. They loved the unique space over a more traditional venue, and the tall windows and natural light felt as though they were outdoors without having to worry about the weather cooperating. They based all of their decor decisions around the space after falling in love with their venue, opting for a flower arbor as a statement piece for their ceremony decor!
They knew they wanted to see each other for the first time when they walked down the aisle, and decided against a First Look. When they talked over the big day, the memory that stood out to them both was seeing each other for the first time when Kristin walked down the aisle. In that moment, all of the build up felt worth it and Kristin felt relaxed and content as soon as she stood next to Jimmy at the altar.
Another favorite memory for the newlyweds came shortly after the ceremony. Laylee Emadi Photography whisked them off for their portrait session and found the perfect backdrop in an industrial shed. After the whirlwind of getting ready and getting married, the couple asked for a few minutes just to talk – they sat down together on the floor and shared their day with each other while Laylee captured the moment on camera!
Their gorgeous reception combined industrial elements from the incredible Edison Bulb chandelier hanging over their Head Table, with romantic ruffled tablecloths and lots of greenery. They incorporated rustic decor with hand lettered wooden table numbers they sourced from Etsy!
If this amazing light feature looks familiar, it made a recent appearance with a moody black and gold theme!
Good food was a must have for their reception, so Kristin and Jimmy worked with Vestals Catering to create stations that represented their favorite foods! They had three stations of chicken & waffles with sriracha and Vermont maple syrup, carnitas street tacos, and brisket sliders with mac & cheese!
They worked with Evergreen Design Signs to create the hand-lettered wood signs that tied their decor together, from menus for the food stations, table numbers, and the chair signs for the bride and groom!
Their gorgeous cake by Sugar Bee Sweets Bakery reflected the style of the bride’s dress – floral piping on the top layer mimicked the lace on her bodice, a pearl layer picked up the detailing on her sash, and the ruffled bottom layer flowed like her tulle skirt! The inside of the cake was just as important as the outside, with white cake and cookies and creme filling! They had a groom’s cake designed to resemble Jimmy’s Aggie ring with chocolate cake and heath bar filling!
For favors we did chocolate chip cookies to go! My mom is well known amongst our friends and family for her amazing chocolate chip cookies and we did consider having her make them but I wanted her to be able to relax and enjoy the week leading up to the wedding. So we decided to use Vestals for the chocolate chip cookies and they were so big and gooey it was perfect!
