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 a beautiful Jewish ceremony at Bethel-El Congregation, the excited guests moved to the Modern Art Museum where the Lobby was transformed into warm, fresh allure with modern grays, whites, berries and purples byleFleur Couture Floral Design and Absolute Lighting.  After they did a traditional bread and wine blessing, dinner was served and guests senses were filled with delicious food, wonderful company and the delightful sounds of the Professor D Band playing dinner music.  Friends and family were buzzing with the excitement as they were ushered into the Café where the full Professor D Band was eagerly awaiting their arrival beginning immediately with the parent dances and the hora (which just about everyone participated in).  It was a night full of dancing, a sweet treat dessert and coffee bar, scrumptious cake by Creme de la Creme, photo-booth fun by Cowboy Photobooth, laughter and pure enjoyment.  When the night came to an end, the band escorted guests and the couple outside where they were greeted with a kosher hot dog stand.  Just a little snack to replenish themselves from all the dancing they did.
