I am so excited to share with y'all a little project I have been working on these past few weeks.

For a while now I have been thinking of doing several blog posts featuring wedding vendors in the Dallas & Fort Worth area. 

So, that's just what I am going to do! 

For the next few weeks I will be posting blogs with Q&A style interviews of wedding professionals in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. 

Kicking off our blog series is the lovely and oh so talented, Whitney Bailey. 

Meet Whitney!

Whitney is the owner of Chic Fleur Weddings and Event's in Dallas, Texas.

Whitney welcomed me to DFW with open arms and I am convinced that her warmness and fun loving spirit is what makes her a top notch wedding planner and coordinator. 

One of the things that I love about Whitney is her genuine heart and amazing organization skills! 

It's clear to see that Whitney loves what she does and because of this she provides her clients with phenomenal services.

Whitney is most certainly an assist to any bride and groom who hires her! 

So, lets get to know Whitney!

Ellen Ashton: Why Did you start your business?

Whitney: I’m a firm believer in “do what you love” and that is exactly what I did! With a background in design and the love for people and hospitality, I thought I would give weddings a try. I love the idea of creating an event that brings two people together and is one of the most special days in their lives. 

 

Ellen Ashton: How did your first client find you?

Whitney: I think my first client found me on theknot.com. I was also very lucky to have family and friends support me and refer me to anyone they knew was getting married.

 

Ellen Ashton: Do you service Dallas or Fort. Worth, or both?

Whitney: We will travel wherever our bride wants to get married. A majority of our brides get married in Dallas but we do have some Fort Worth brides. We also have a few destination weddings on the books for 2016/2017 and we are so excited for this!  

 

Ellen Ashton: How do you survive the wedding day?

Whitney: With the perfect timeline, some fantastic vendors and a Venti coffee I am good to go! 

 

Ellen Ashton: What is your favorite 2016 wedding trend?

Whitney: My favorite 2016 trend is the “garden look”. I am all about a lush floral garland for your head table and lots of greenery. 

 

Ellen Ashton: What is your most favored color palette for weddings this year?

Whitney: I am loving the combo of lavender ivory and greenery. 

 

Ellen Ashton: What is your favorite television show?

Whitney: I am a huge Grey’s Anatomy fan and The Bachelor fan!  I have been watching both shows since the beginning so I will forever be a far. 

 

Ellen Ashton: Wine or Ice-cream?

Whitney: For sure wine (specifically a good Cabernet). Although what’s this I hear about ice-cream wine? I need to try this! 

 

Ellen Ashton: What is your most favored package you offer to couples?

Whitney: My favorite package is of course our Full Planning in addition to our Design Package. I love getting to know the couple and being able to insert pieces into their wedding that resemble them. With a huge passion in design I love to help create an unimaginable experience for both the couple and their guests.

Wedding planners/coordinators work hard behind the scenes before and during the wedding day. They keep you on budget, find you good deals and hustle months before and during the wedding day. They insure that you get to experience your dream wedding and get to soak up every special moment with your family and friends. Who wouldn't want this?! 

 Let me just tell you, it takes a village to make a wedding day happen and a good planner like Whitney is key for a smooth wedding day. 

Each and every wedding vendor is SO IMPORTANT. I hope this blog series will help brides of all kinda find the perfect vendor for them!

Dallas Texas Fine Art Engagement Session | Ellen Ashton Photography | Dallas Wedding Photographers

I am so excited to share with you all Daniel & Amanda's downtown Dallas engagement session! 

I met Daniel and Amanda when we were all poor little college students. I was thrilled when I heard these two got engaged and am so honored to have been able to photograph this special time in their lives. 

As most of you know, I adore all things pertaining to love and weddings so of course this downtown session was right up my ally! 

I hope you enjoy this sweet session as much as I enjoyed taking it.

As always, much love and many blessings

Y'all have absolutely no idea how overjoyed I was when we snagged this dreamy roof top location. It was really a dream come true and I am so thankful for the people who helped us get into this location. It literally made this shoot 10 million times more special. 

Enjoy Workshop 2016 | Ellen Ashton Photography | Minneapolis Wedding Photographer | Whimsical Barn Wedding

Holy smokes! I am absolutely in love with this "Enjoy Workshop" styled wedding shoot! For the past three years I have attended the three lovely Enjoy workshops hosted by the lovely and oh so talented Erin Johnson

Workshops are so wonderful for lots of different reasons! They are awesome because we get to kick back, relax and get creative without having the pressure that can sometimes come on the wedding day (not that I am complaining, I LOVE real weddings and everything that comes with them!) None the less, photographers need creative days like this... Over the years I can honestly say that I have walked away from these workshops  refreshed and happy from the sweet fellowship of other amazing creatives. 

Here is a little taste of some of the images I captured at this dreamy workshop.

Of course I just had to get some shots of myselfwith my photographer friends from the Enjoy workshops over the years! Wish I could have snapped one with Nicki!
