France with its timeless architecture and chic fashion is inspiring weddings across the globe, today we have some French wedding inspiration in Texas to share with you.
From our bride’s stunning Berta gown to her pampas wedding bouquet this wedding inspiration shoot screams French understated elegance.
We’ll now pass you over to photographer Emmarie Jackson Studios who will be walking us through this wedding inspiration in Texas…
When it comes to Weddings, whenever people hear about Dallas, they often associate it with “Southern Belle” or “Rustic” in style. That is generally true, you might have already seen a lot of brides wearing their traditional cowboy boots underneath their wedding dresses. Or, you might be more familiar with a grand yellow themed southern wedding with succulents and a rustic touch. But what many still don’t know, is that deep in the heart of Dallas, lies a beautiful French inspired luxury wedding venue called The Olana.
The Olana is Dallas’ newest luxury wedding venue. Completed in late 2018, it is a 40 acre estate located in Dallas, Texas. The mansion is inspired by French baroque architecture, and it was built as an homage to Château de Vaux-le-Vicomte in Paris.
The exterior has a European aesthetic, and highlights of the interior include a tea room modeled after New York’s Tavern on the Green, an indoor and outdoor pool, a tennis court, a bowling alley, a basketball court, expansive private suites and more. The mansion has so much detail, that it makes up for any minimal wedding theme or decorations if you are going for a conservative but elegant style.
The Olana which became open to the public as a wedding venue since early 2019, is fairly new. We immediately hopped on getting Madison Scott Moore’s bridal shoot done in time for Autumn. We decided to feature her bridals in the indoor pool room and the grand staircase.
With our theme being Autumn Bliss, the middle of October in Dallas is still fairly warm, we thought that the pool room is perfect. Add a touch of pampas grass arranged by The Petal Exchange to one of Berta’s elegant off shoulder gowns. The look is complete with a modern style updo by Leslie of Hair by Leslie Barajas, and of course the elegant makeup by Cris Jenn Makeup topped and completed the look we were going for!
