I have been planning this styled shoot in my head for MONTHS and finally I had the opportunity to see it through, but not without some help from some of the most wonderful wedding vendors in Dallas/Fort Worth.
My vision for this “wedding” was rustic meets elegant; a little bit of country charm mixed with glitz, gold, and traditional circus elements. It was held at the stables at Classic Oaks Ranch in Mansfield, TX. If you have never been to this place, you need to visit (or if you’re planning a wedding, check them out!). It’s a breath of fresh, country air; a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of DFW.
How cute is this little setup? Gourmet cotton candy with edible gold glitter courtesy of Fluffpop! Gourmet Popcorn in fun flavors like Italian Cream Cake, Cheesecake, and Watermelon by Hotpoppin!
I am officially OBSESSED with Fluffpop’s Chai Latte flavored cotton candy. Guys, you have to try it. It’s addictive and 100% organic!
What’s sweeter than a donut tower cake topped with cotton candy? Probably nothing.
The owner of Fluffpop and Hotpoppin is introducing a new gourmet cotton candy called Sugaire! It will be debuting in October 2015.
