Jewish Fall Wedding at The W Hotel Dallas

It was love at first click! Daniel received encouragement from one of Emily’s cousins to send Emily a friend request on Facebook. The two began chatting away and the rest was history. They officially met on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin where they both attended college.

Five years later Daniel was ready to pop the question. He proposed at the dog park with the couple’s adorable Boxer, Cali. “It was the perfect spot since we love our dog so much!” says Emily!  Soon they were in wedding planning mode and selected the swanky W Hotel Dallas for their ceremony and reception.

Emily’s inspiration for their wedding was to keep it simple and classic. She stated, “I always imagined my bridesmaids wearing black since it is my favorite color to wear and thought that white and blush color flowers would pop well off of that.” Emily wore a gorgeous Tara Keely gown which she purchased from De Ma Fille in Ft. Worth and her maids picked their own gowns.

Setting the tone for the evening, the wedding party and couple made their entrance to live guitar music played by Nick DiGennaro. Emily and Daniel exchanged their vows underneath a beautiful birch chuppah designed by Fleurs de France who also created the rest of the floral pieces for their wedding. This moment was a favorite for both Emily & David as they stood there with their Rabbi and parents.

During the wedding ceremony, Emily said she unexpectedly became very emotional with tears streaming down her face. The Rabbi read out loud to everyone the letters that the couple wrote to each other. Emily was under the impression that the he would only be using bits and pieces for his speech. Guests’ loved the letters and how accurate they were. Emily and Daniel even heard guests’ quoting exact lines from the letters later in the evening while mingling during the reception.

After the tea ceremony came to a close, it was time to get ready for the ceremony! Jannie gave all of her bridesmaids personalized button downs to wear while they got ready. What a great combination of cute and practical.

Of course, you can’t start getting ready for your wedding without first bringing out the bubbly!

After Jannie and her maids were all ready to go, complete with makeup from TC Makeup, she walked down the aisle at the beautiful CityPlace venue in Dallas. Their ceremony was officiated by none other than Marty Younkin from Love Notes.

Jannie and John chose a navy and burnt orange color scheme, which are both of their university’s colors. All of the beautiful flowers and arrangements were provided by Haute Floral.

It seems like they really enjoyed what they saw when they got to see their reception space for the first time! Looking back at her reception, Jannie noted that, “At one point in the night, while we were sitting at our sweetheart table we looked out at all of our guests and saw that everyone was talking to one another, smiling, laughing, having a good time, enjoying the food and music, décor.  That is all we ever really asked for – for everyone to have fun.” And fun they had!

Now that their wedding day is over and they’ve settled into married life, Jannie and John say it’s good to relax without worrying about wedding planning, and it’s so great to finally be married!

 

Real Fall Wedding at the Fort Worth Water Gardens

After meeting in 9th grade in Plano, Texas, Britney and Kris couldn’t wait to tie the knot at their fall 2013 wedding at the Fort Worth Water Gardens. They chose their fall date because it was between their two birthdays, October 1st and October 11th, and it incorporated Britney’s favorite colors: orange, brown, and shades of red.

When asked about their decision to do a ‘first look’, this is what Britney had to say:

“Our first look before the wedding was so incredibly special to me. I was so nervous walking down to see him, almost in tears. So much raw emotion and love! I felt like that moment all the planning and organizing I had done for the wedding was suddenly worth it, every last bit of it. It was the perfect moment.”

With the threat of a thunderstorm brewing, Britney and Kris didn’t even consider moving their beautiful wedding inside.  Somehow, they just knew everything would work out.

The moment the ceremony finished and the guests were inside, it started pouring down rain! They say rain is good luck on your wedding day, which seems to be especially true for Britney and Kris.

After a close call with mother nature, the celebration was taken across the street to the Sheraton Hotel in Fort Worth. All of the details that Britney worked on really came together for the reception. From small details like the signs and the favors, to the intricate centerpieces, Britney and Kris’s reception was true to their style and no detail went unnoticed.

With a grand exit in an antique car to drive them away, their wedding day drew to a close. What a fabulous day! We are so lucky to have been a part of the planning and the celebration.

It seems as if married life is treating Britney and Kris quite well. She explains, “I don’t really feel that much has changed in our everyday life since we got married, but now it’s that feeling like “It’s just me and you, partners for life and in it together. It’s a great feeling!”
