A Chic Green and White Wedding at Heart of the Ranch in Fort Worth, Texas
Lucy Ryan (23) and Will Presley (24) knew they would get married at the church that brought them together, Christ Chapel Bible Church, but took the opportunity to get creative and personalize their reception at Heart of the Ranch in Fort Worth, Texas. Lucy had always dreamed of a chic outdoor wedding, so she paired green (her favorite color) with white to bring out the venue's natural colors. The celebration began with an alfresco cocktail hour, where guests enjoyed Moscow Mules in copper cups (a touch Lucy loved), followed by a reception inside a clear tent enhanced by lanterns, string lights and chandeliers. Wedding consultant Carson Castellaw from Bella Flora made the planning process easy and enjoyable as she turned Lucy and Will’s vision into a reality. She was more than just a planner: Bella Flora even brought in lush white and green flowers for the incredible flower arrangements, which ranged from the rose, lisianthus and coxcomb bouquets to the centerpieces and a dramatic floral runner for the head table. Since they celebrated outdoors in Fort Worth, Texas, Bonnell’s Restaurant created a Texas-style menu and served delicious Southern cuisine in food stations around the tent (think cheese grit tacos and guacamole-salsa tostadas). And while Lucy and Will might have gone classic with their white wedding cake and chocolate groom’s cake, the display was anything but ordinary: Each cake had its own display pavilion, complete with drapery and a gold sparkly tablecloth, and had fresh touches to complete the natural style.
