Larsen + Jacob reached out to me just a few short months before the date of their spring microwedding, and from the first conversation, I think I was even more excited about it than they were! Everything about their vision, from the morning brunch setting to the thoughtful and personalized details, was so lovely that I was hooked from the start, and so excited to help them bring it all to life.
Larsen + Jacob are very low-key and didn’t want anything over-the-top, so we kept everything simple: a traditional blue-and-white color palette, lots of ginger jars, and crisp white tulips as far as the eye could see. The mid-March date also made for perfect weather, so we got to host the entire event in the Hotel Crescent Court’s beautiful courtyard.
When a couple’s vision is clear and they’re decisive in what they want, magic happens. Their entire vendor team was a dream, and Larsen + Jacob added their own creative touches too to make the day uniquely them: they actually hand-mixed and poured each candle favor, and Larsen’s mother designed and produced the stunning invitation suites.
From the courtyard ceremony to the peaceful brunch reception to the grand exit through the lobby of the iconic Hotel Crescent Court, every moment of this celebration was a dream come true!

When Covid started to shut things down across the Dallas/Fort Worth area, one of the first venues to close was Hannah + Rodrigo’s: the city-owned Botanic Gardens. We’d been planning their intimate April wedding for nearly a year at that point, and we were under major time constraints: Hannah, a recent graduate of medical school, had just been assigned to a residency program in Florida and was moving out of state at the beginning of May. Basically, we didn’t have time to scramble to make a new plan; we only had a few weeks to make her wedding happen – or it wouldn’t happen at all.
While Hannah + Rodrigo packed up their lives and got ready to move, their incredible vendor team and I came up with a new plan and design, with the venue being Hannah’s mother’s beautiful home. Instead of the 30 or so guests they’d counted on, we cut the guest count to only 6, with some of their closest friends and family – including Rodrigo’s parents in South America – following along on Zoom.
Hannah had spent nearly a year planning each and every detail of the day, and we kept the spirit of her design even with the smaller scale of the wedding. Everything was so special and beautifully designed, from the custom coffee sleeves provided by Rockwell’s Coffee to the stunning stationery created by one of our very favorites, Brown Fox Creative. Coupled with the vibrant florals from Dr. Delphinium, the entire day felt warm and bright and inviting – exactly as Hannah had dreamed.
The wedding was a small one – the very first of our “micro-weddings” – but there was so much love that the house felt full enough to burst. Every moment was bright and joy-filled, with laughter and smiles in spite of the state of the outside world – and the bride and groom’s impending cross-country move. For a few beautiful, happy hours, the only thing that mattered was Hannah + Rodrigo and the new family they had built. The day was lovely beyond words, and we felt so lucky to get to be a part of it all.
