Natasha & RJ

Natasha & RJ

Wedding Date: April 9, 2020
Ceremony Location: Fort Worth Botanical Gardens
Wedding Reception Location: Pending


Setting the Scene

Natasha and RJ have been engaged since July 4th, but they met and have been dating since they had the perfect meet cute at a dive bar in Deep Ellum. She hails from Edmond, Oklahoma and he from Houston, Texas, so they will be having a large majority of their guests come in from out of town.

They are looking to plan a wedding on April 9, 2020, and have settled on Fort Worth as the location of their nuptials. They have determined that the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens will host the ceremony. They haven’t yet selected the perfect location for the reception, but importantly they want something that has good bones to be able to build their wedding design upon. Natasha and RJ will have around 25-30 guests so attention to detail and guest experience is crucial for them as they will all be able to experience the wedding day in a very intimate way.

While they both gravitate toward a more contemporary style, Natasha and RJ, believe in an aesthetic that leans toward bright colors and elegant design that truly reflects them as a couple. They are both into food as well so the meal is a very important aspect of the evening, especially for RJ, while Natasha’s focus will be on the decor and making sure that their eventual reception space feels full yet appropriate to make their event truly intimate.

Planning in the current global environment, they are interested in a planning package that includes both vendor and logistics support in the final months and overall concept and design. They will have a wedding that is very intimate and are looking for it to be fun and not too stuffy. Natasha and RJ are interested in making their wedding as unique as possible as well as incredibly fun to ensure that all of their guests have an incredible time.
