Cameron Salehi & Winston Kelly

August 16  |  Midland, TX

Photographed by: Thisbe Grace Photography

Whenever Cameron Salehi and Winston Kelly want to relive the memories of their fairy-tale romance, all they need to do is open their very own storybook. After proposing to his sweetheart (whom he first met in high school) with a 110-year-old diamond that belonged to his great-great-grandfather, Winston revealed the custom tome he had created that told the narrative of their relationship, complete with photos, loving words, and signatures from their entire family. “It was really amazing the amount of time and effort he put into it,” Cameron says.

As both Cameron and Winston are natives of Midland, Texas, and currently reside in the city, planning a wedding in their hometown was a natural choice. “A lot of our friends had beautiful destination weddings, but we wanted everyone to come to our home and celebrate with us here,” she explains. To the bride’s delight, Winston remained very involved in helping her and their consultant plan a simple, personalized ceremony at the couple’s church and a tented reception on the lush grounds of a private country club.

In light of the spectacular reception that was to come, the pair opted to keep the décor of the sanctuary minimal, so as to focus the service on their commitment to each other. White flowers of nearly every variety, including roses, hydrangeas, and tulips, were displayed atop bullion urns and as a lovely hedge across the altar. Bridesmaids carried bouquets of matching blooms and wore elegant dresses they designed themselves, featuring gold bodices and floor-length taupe skirts. Before seeing his bride – who looked ravishing in a ball gown with a voluminous ruffled skirt – walk down the aisle, Winston expected to be emotional. “But when I saw her, I couldn’t stop smiling,” he remembers. “My heart was completely fulfilled knowing we were about to become husband and wife.” The groom’s sisters read an Irish blessing, and his cousin rang “The Steel Bell” – a 100-year-old bell named after Winston’s family that was brought out of the historic Fort Worth Masonic Temple just for the occassion.

While their 500 guests enjoyed cocktails outside the reception tent, Cameron and Winston took their first look at the magnificent ivory and gold structure, which had taken a week to build from scratch. “The walk-through of the tent before any guests had seen it was like walking into an imaginary place that had been brought to life,” says the groom. Luxurious swaths of vanilla fabric formed the ceiling and walls, which were constructed around preexisting trees that were wrapped with neutral flowers. “Everyone couldn’t believe they were the same trees that had been there for years!” Cameron exclaims.

A mixture of sofas, banquettes, ottomans, and intimate tables, all in shades of white, taupe, and gold, provided varied seating options for dinner. Tall glass vases brimming with eggshell-hued blossoms and crystals were placed around the room, and crystal chandeliers hung from the ceiling. But the focal point of the space was undoubtedly the shimmering installation that was suspended above the dance floor, which mimicked the wedding invitations as well as the dance floor design.

Since the father of the bride is Iranian and several guests had flown in from Iran to attend the celebration, a traditional Sofreh table displayed a spread of symbolic foods and décor elements. A live band with an impressive horn section entertained the crowd, followed by a DJ who spun hits until 2:30 a.m. Cameron was especially delighted by her father’s enthusiasm for their father-daughter dance to songs by Paul Simon and Hank Williams, Jr. and incorporating choreography for a few close friends. In addition to late-night snacks from the newlyweds’ favorite Midland eateries, two wedding cakes were served. Cameron’s dress inspired the first, which was an elegant pearl confection adorned with gold sugar flowers and geometric designs. The second was a stunning replica of the new football stadium at the University of Oklahoma, Winston’s alma mater. Eye masks printed with “Dreaming of… #kellycloud9” (the couple’s official hashtag) were appreciated favors after an unforgettable night of revelry.

Cameron acknowledges how easy it is for brides to get caught up in the small details and forget about the larger significance of the event. But she and Winston savored their moments together and the love shown by their friends and family, who were responsible for some of their favorite moments of their wedding. “At the end of the day you are surrounded by people that love you, marrying the person you love,” she points out, “and that’s all that matters.”


We worked on this fabulous event with Sonia Sharma Events at a private estate. These beautiful images come from Dina Douglass of Adrena Photography. Produced and designed by Sonia Sharma Events, this event called for pristine lounge furniture. Our day bed with a custom white cover was a perfect selection for this sophisticated event. A gorgeous shot in daylight shows off our White and Gold Custom Canopies and our White Ibiza Furniture Collection with gold accent tables provided shade and privacy during cocktails. Custom white and gold linens were designed for the event.

It’s all about the details. The pendants hung in the canopies, with the carved gold trim on a few of the furniture pieces and the lush floral design tie the entire look together. Our custom white and gold bars were placed under the  custom canopies with gold bar backs completing the look. We designed custom linens for the high-top cocktail tables with gold cording and tassels. Gorgeous 5′ floral designs were placed around the estate fountain, which made for a really special environment.

Today, we step into a styled shoot inspired by the traditional floating markets in Bangkok, Thailand with Sonia Sharma Events and Design and Celios Design. Originating in times and places where water transportation played and important role in daily life, floating markets were ways to sell vegetables, fruits and other goods from small boats. Most floating markets now operate as tourist attractions, with the most notable in Ratchaburi, Thailand called Damnoen Saduak.

Energized by the lively and bygone way of life, Sonia Sharma’s vision of her floating market was heightened with a fusion of color and beauty. A team consisting of Revelry Event DesignersEni Pra MakeupCouture Beauty TeamR-Mine Bespoke came together for the event, with the day captured by Andrena Photography

The team sourced tropical fruits and vegetables similar to those that are sold on the market in Thailand to recreate the atmosphere. Celio Paulo de Almeida’s recipe consisted of a mixture of flowers, fruits and vegetables using roses, garden flowers, daisies, sunflowers, carnations, apples, watermelons, peppers, mangos, pineapple, oranges, peaches, grapes and bananas.

They opted for the creation of a custom-made umbrella draped with full and delicate blooms over a traditional bouquet. The end result was simply stunning to behold.

Three R-Mine Bespoke gowns were worn by the model throughout the day. Arminé Ohanessian’s couture gowns magnetize the attention of fashion lovers around the world. As the creative designer of R-mine Bespoke, she compliments modernism with old-fashioned quality workmanship. R-mine caters to all occasions from timeless and elegant bridal gowns to show-stopping red carpet ensembles. The gowns used for the shoot included:

Chriselle: Vintage inspired silk chiffon gown with a pleated bodice; detailed with Chantilly lace cape sleeves which trail down to a deep low back. Skirt is hand draped and finished with a swarovski brooch.

Brooklyn: Halter neck gown with a plunging low back, made in a dotted charmeuse. Adorned with an art-deco inspired crystal belt.

Rosette: Strapless gown with a plunging v-neckline. Bodice is adorned with handmade rosettes and pleated detail. Skirt is hand draped and finished with a swarovski brooch.

A truly beautiful vision. Dina Douglass shared with us her interpretation of the story from the day below in a short essay. 

She woke to find her dreams had been of flowers . . . flowers from the floating market on the midnight azure waters of her village. As the slumber fell from her eyes, she felt herself being drawn towards the water that had surrounded her since she was a girl. She dressed herself in white and tiptoed outside towards the beckoning call of the river. There, a parasol covered in vibrant blossoms awaited her hand. As she reached for it, she saw a red canoe floating nearby. The vessel was filled with flowers and fruits, each promising to take her on a journey bathed in mystery.

She stepped in, and the water gently carried her away from her home. She had always felt as one with the water and with the colors that now dotted the darkness of the river. The water knew her best, and she knew the water would know where to go.

“The creative teams of Sterling Engagements and Shawna Yamamoto Event Design took a step back in time for their “1920s Vintage Seaside Romance” styled shoot. “We wanted to design something that stands up to today’s design standards, [while embracing] the vintage elements,” they explain. The historic Bel-Air Bay Club guided the ambience of the event, which featured a classic color scheme inspired by the selected linen. 

Constructed by Alphonzo Bell from 1927 to 1928 along the shores of Pacific Palisades, the property was intended to provide a beautiful place of leisure for prominent local citizens, socialites, and Hollywood celebrities. These were the individuals for whom this event was staged. Thus, seating assignments, indicated by names written with navy ink in elegant calligraphy upon sand-toned paper seashells, placed Mr. Bell at the head of the table. The Talmadge sisters – silent film actresses – and Douglas Fairbanks were also among the shoot’s honored guests.

Windows offering views of the Pacific Ocean were dressed with breezy ivory fabric gathered by bouquets of green and white flowers. Vanilla hydrangeas were lined on the low windowsill below. To anchor the essence of romance, a sculptural swirl centerpiece composed of a variety of pearl blooms, including hydrangeas, lilacs, stephanotis, anemones, and fringed tulips, started at one end of the table – dressed with an opulent ivory, textured tablecloth with gold threads – and ended at the other. Three small teardrop-shaped, beaded glass chandeliers accented the floral piece. Soft lighting emitted from taper candles in cylindrical candleholders and votives in golden vessels.

Offset by sapphire satin napkins, place settings of elegant china with gold rims and patterns and bullion chargers were paired with gilded flatware. Double Old-Fashioned glasses with modern gilt swirls, as well as wine glasses with rosy stems and bowls, were on hand for the libations at the celebration. A couple of treats awaited attendees when they took their seats in chic Infinity chairs with polished bullion backs and ivory cushions: a cupcake in a gold foil cup topped with frosting, artistic scalloped circles, and petite sugar flowers, and a cake pop sprinkled with gilded sugar. Additional treats were displayed on an Art Deco dessert cart, including a pastel blue cake embellished with golden ropes and sugar anemones with navy centers on a crystal cake plate.

Ultimately, all the elements harmoniously created a timeless aesthetic. “Together by the sea is a beautiful place to be” was gracefully handwritten on a cut-out, which was showcased on place settings to capture the scenic location as well as the sentiment of joyful gatherings. So as you plan your big day, be aware of how your venue and details that catch your eye can inspire the look of your celebration.
