A Flower Power Celebration!
It was a sunny evening in Dallas when Hannah Forbare and Fritz Deichert gathered their loved ones together to celebrate their love for each other at The Ritz Carlton in the heart of Downtown Dallas. Kristin Butler and her hard working team at Fabulous Fete were the proprietary planners who organized a Floral Fairytale ceremony and reception in the same ballroom at the Ritz Carlton. Guests were welcomed to a floor to ceiling florally outfitted ceremony with elegant music from a string quartet. Emerald City’s own soloists, Jade and Adam, performed an acoustic version of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” as the bride floated down an aisle decorated with lavish petal white blooming trees designed by Bella Flora of Dallas. After the ceremony guests were escorted into the main cocktail area to enjoy beverages, light refreshments, and a Gospel ensemble from Eclipse Entertainment.
Both the ceremony and reception spaces were decorated from top to bottom with stunning drapery and floral arrangements provided by Bella Flora and soft colored lighting for the full room by Stage 2 Lighting. Rounded tables with lengthy floral tree arrangements, single feature floral vases, and soft candle lighting were organized around a square dance floor, provided by Center Stage Floors, which featured the bride and groom’s monogrammed initials. More of the unique collection of white florals from the original ceremony space were used throughout the space, transporting guests to an enchanted forest. With such a large volume of florals the ballroom smelled of the most heavenly floral shop featuring a diverse bouquet of white flowers ranging from romantic roses, to delicate orchids and hydrangeas. The cake, provided by the hotel and outfitted with florals from Bella Flora, sat in front of the largest floral feature of the venue, a magnificent wall bouquet with almost every type of ivory flower you could imagine.
The ballrooms doors opened and the new “Mr. and Mrs. Deichert” came waltzing into their first dance song, “Crazy Love” by Van Morisson. After the parents of the bride and groom shared some loving sentiments with the newlyweds, the party was up and rocking. Emerald City busted out their favorite hits like “Ain’t No Mountain,” “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” and various pop medleys while guests danced the night away. Elysium productions and John Cain Photography were close to the action ready to capture the best memories of the night. Guests were encouraged to visit the MirMir photo booth to take home souvenirs from the night.
A full sized candy bar with new and old classics was set up for guests who were looking to satisfy their sweet tooth.
With a deep, shared love for baseball, the bride and groom donned their jerseys and sneakers and opted for comfort for the final dance set of the night.
