Wedding at T & P Station in Fort Worth

The Historic T & P Station in Fort Worth was the site for this springtime wedding. The T & P Station is Fort Worth's largest and most extravagant example of 1920's Zigzag Moderne architecture. The terminal was built in 1931 and was restored and made available for event rentals in 1999. 

The bride chose a bright Spring accent color to add a lively pop to the space. The black floor length linen with the bright napkin added to the dramatic color pallete.  The floral centerpieces on the guest tables and the cake with pops of the same color, tied the whole event color scheme together. 

Guests were treated to a dinner buffet featuring both our Signature Spinach and Artichoke Chicken  and a beef entree to select from. A bountiful and fresh green salad, whipped potatoes, sautéed vegetables and warm, fresh dinner rolls completed the meal. 

....and they lived deliciously ever after....

Food Styling at Nuvo Room

The pristine, all white Nuvo Room was the backdrop for a recent styled photo shoot. As You Wish Events  created a fresh, fun, tropical backdrop complete with beautiful floral pieces. The head table was set with two large arrangements and several smaller floral arrangements of eye popping pink and orange lined the center of the table.

The ladies at As You Wish thought of all the details from banana leaf lined trays to snazzy menu cards with accenting pops of pink. 

The menu for the shoot included a tropical   shrimp shooter and a delicious, colorful  and flavorfully creative mango bruschetta.
