Elegant Coastal Wedding Inspiration

As we enter Fall season and officially say goodbye to summer, we thought it would be appropriate to reminisce once more about mid-summer coastal weddings before wrapping up the season for the year. Dulce Dream Events set out to create a beautiful elegant and timeless take on nautical weddings, using a very soft and elegant color palette of blue, green, and ivory. We are just obsessed with all the dreamy ethereal details and fluffy blooms from Quatre Coeur! Don’t miss the stunning calligraphy and stationary on sea glass by Everly Calligraphy, the subtle accents of driftwood, and how they all intertwine in our softly textured seafoam linens. The shoot was amazingly captured by Charlie Juliet.










We’re loving this gorgeous take on a waterside wedding! Dulce Dream Events set out to create an elegant and timeless take on nautical weddings, with a neutral color palette of soft blue, green, and ivory. Paired with dreamy ethereal details and fluffy blooms from Quatre Coeur, the result is a breath of late summer fresh air. We adore the pretty calligraphy on sea glass by Everly Calligraphy, the beautiful textured seafoam linens from Nuage Designs, and the subtle accents of driftwood. Every image from Charlie Juliet is positively stunning!

Hello Dallas! Introducing our new showroom with Bella Acento

We are so excited to finally set up shop in Dallas, as part of the brand new and stunning showroom space of Bella Acento, one of the most amazing full-service rental companies in the big state. Not only are we excited for our launch, but Bella Flora (Bella Acento’s sister company) is turning 15 and recently hosted its own all-white party with 250 of its closest friends and family.

With so many things to celebrate and share together this month, we thought the time couldn’t be any better to sit down with the BA team and have a chat about their story, memories, and even some tips for throwing an unforgettable event. Check out our conversation below and don’t miss the beautiful photos from the event!


Bella Flora & Bella Acento’s 15th Anniversary







From Bella Acento:

We recently hosted a blanco themed party in celebration of our 15th anniversary of Bella Flora of Dallas, in our newly expanded Bella Flora + Bella Acento showroom. We invited 250 of our closest creative partners for a peek at our new space and an over-the-top birthday celebration! It was so wonderful to see so may of our vendor friends jump at the chance to partner with us for our grand celebration. It truly was a group effort! It was amazing to see how seamlessly everyone worked together. Our “Bella birthday” was the perfect platform to showcase our beautiful new inventory of Nuage linens! From the high tops to our branded catering stations and our Bella Acento vignettes, the gorgeous linens added the perfect pops to our all-white fiesta!

Groom’s Fashion Inspiration Shoot by Tanya Costigan Events

Soft colors, classic venue, and with bold and modern accents, this beautiful, meticulously styled shoot conveys the perfect combination for the modern groom to remain timeless while staying true to himself. Perfectly envisioned for the two-groom wedding, Tanya Costigan Events orchestrated this incredible shoot that feels traditional while hinting of modern elements; a place where old meets new. The gorgeous architecture of the Wheatleigh presents itself as the perfect context for the lavish, 1920’s look of well-fitted grey jackets with pops of color in shirt, tie and boutonnière. The details in this styled photoshoot are just as rich and beautiful, full of colorful purples and elegant golds! You can see more of this wedding in their cinematic film here. Enjoy!















From The Black Tie Bride:

We’re thrilled to be sharing something a little different with you today! Rather than focusing in on the bride and her style, we’re going to share some inspiration for your groom! Tanya Costigan Events sent us this incredible groom’s fashion inspiration shoot that is perfect for our black tie brides to share with their well groomed grooms! The style of both of the grooms is classic and holds hints of modern elements, a perfect combination for today’s groom to remain timeless and true to himself at the same time. Well-fitted grey jackets with pops of color in shirt, tie and boutonnière are a winning combination and a perfect match with the gorgeous architecture of the Wheatleigh. The details in this stylized session are just as amazing, full of rich purples and elegant golds! You can see more of this wedding in their cinematic film here. Enjoy!
