Join us as we dive deep into detail of our award-winning wedding for the Texas Star Awards 2015 - Best Team Effort ($75,000-$200,000 Category). This is such a pure and true example of what happens when hardworking and dedicated vendors come together to execute a masterpiece!

Ana & Russell had a grand vision in mind when meeting with Clearly Classy Events! With only a few short months to plan, we jumped right in to grasp their concept and turn it into a beautiful reality!
The couple wanted to give their guests a relaxed atmosphere and an "at-home" feel, but also "wow" them with the design and décor! They decided on hosting the wedding day at Russell's parents' residence, and let us take care of the rest =).
With our grand tent in place - many thanks to the fabulous Whim Event Rentals - the transformation began! Carrie with Flora Fetish hit a home-run with these gorgeous, tall-standing arrangements full of roses, orchids, and hydrangeas galore! Crystal strands were placed throughout the flowers to give an extra sparkle!
World Audio & Lights did an outstanding job with the drapery, LEDs, string-lighting, pin-spotting, chandeliers, and oh so much more! There is basically nothing that these guys can't handle!
Sherry Hammonds was on-site throughout the entire day capturing these magical moments! We loved the many different angles and her attention to every detail.
Steve Coker officiated Ana and Russell's ceremony - with a deep, strong voice and a touch of humor - we can't get enough of him!
Dawn turned to dusk, and the reception area lit up the neighborhood! The lighting shimmered through the purple and gold, creating a deep violet and indigo fusion of the floral and décor. The pin-spotting bounced off of each arrangement, coming full circle!
With their grand entrance, Ana & Russell enjoyed a serenade by the Mariachi band. When the Mariachi comes, you can't help but feel happy! They flowed into their first dance as newlyweds, and then the party began with some help from DJ Slim Jim.
Crave Catering took care off all the food (to include appetizers, dinner, and a late night snack!) and bartending for the night! These cute, bite-sized items were their Kobe Beef Sliders with Guacamole & Crispy Onion Rings and the infamous Crave Chips & Sauce in adorable little cones! Mini-options are a great alternative for a light bite at the end of the night!
Sweet Treets Bakery designed a gorgeous three-tier cake to fit the purple and gold theme perfectly! The chocolate and vanilla cake was absolutely delicious - we may or may not have snuck a bite! ;).
With a grand exit to include thousands of bubbles, Ana & Russell ended the night running through a few of their closest friends and family!
