Rustic Chic Spring Wedding

When Trent and Lindsey met it was not all heart eyes and butterflies at first. They met on a plane that was owned by Lindsey’s friend’s family and Trent was their pilot. Lindsey’s best friend stayed in touch with Trent so they ended up seeing each other several times after that. Then a few years later Trent finally asked Lindsey on a date. They dated for 2 years before Trent popped the question on January 31, 2014.

On that chilly winter day, Trent and Lindsey were at the lake and decided to take a stroll after unpacking like they usually do. They were sitting at a picnic table enjoying the view when they realized it was 5:55pm. “Time to make a wish!” and yes, they still do this tradition. After they both made their wishes Trent asked Lindsey what she had wished for. To his excitement her response was, “to spend the rest of my life with you.” This set him up perfectly to ask her to marry him, so he got down on one knee and pulled out the ring! Once Lindsey realized what was going on, she gave him a big “yes!”

Trent and Lindsey wanted a rustic chic spring wedding look. The ceremony was held at the Perkins Chapel and the reception was at Times Ten Cellars. They used ivory, gray, greenery and pops of peach to give it a farm to table, industrial style. Lindsey loves lights so they used a lot of cafe lights and candles. It was simple and romantic.

The floral arrangements were done by The Southern Table.    dallas_wedding_planner_0128

Lindsey’s gown was designed by La Sposa and she purchased it at Patsy’s A Bridal Boutique. The gray suits and dresses really complimented the look of the wedding. The colors are very aesthetically appeasing.

Growing up Trent was always in love with the “velvet Elvis” that his parents owned, so as a wedding gift Trent’s parents gave them the coveted portrait of Elvis Presley in all his velvet glory. Undoubtedly there was great laughter and big smiles from everyone. What a fun and memorable gift!

Lindsey said her favorite part of the wedding was their first look. Trent’s favorite part was being able to sit down to have dinner and by themselves. It was the alone times where they really got to absorb the excitement and joy for that day and for each other.

Thank you for letting us be apart of such a beautiful day as we watched you become husband and wife.

 

Fairytale House of Blues Wedding

Blind dates actually can lead to a happily ever after. At least that is how Jason and Briann ended up together! When they were set up on their blind date they thought that they had both blown it. It was not until a year later that they met up again for lunch and realized that they actually liked each other. After that they dated for a year and 10 months before Jason proposed. This proposal was highly thought out. Jason had created a scavenger hunt throughout all of Dallas. It lead Briann to their favorite and most memorable places. The last clue brought her to the steps of Dallas Hall at SMU where Jason was waiting to put a ring on it.

Their engagement lasted 21 months before they said their “I Do’s”. These many months were certainly needed with the amount of detail that went into this fairytale House of Blues wedding. They wanted a Alice in Wonderland meets Doctor Who theme. Oh boy did they pull it off! With the rich color palate consisting of deep blues and vibrant purples. They also used many metallic golds and silvers. The decor spoke wonders!

Briann’s wedding dress was designed by Jenny Packham which she purchased at Joan Pillow Bridal Salon in Houston, Texas. Her bouquet was made with broaches she had collected over time. All floral pieces were created by Dr. Delphinium.

The ceremony and reception were absolutely magical. Every detail was highly thought out. Briann hand wrote all their vows in a blue book as a gift for Jason. She also hand burned the numbers onto all the table placement numbers.

A unique addition to their reception was having a hookah lounge area for their guest to enjoy. There seats around the hookahs were extremely comfortable . This addition really made the guest feel like the characters from Alice in Wonderland. Rentals were provided by Fauxcades and the hookah rentals came from Cairo Hookah Lounge.

When Jason and Briann were announced at the beginning of the reception, instead of just walking out behind the rest of the bridal party, they jumped out of the blue phone booth prop. What a great surprise for the guest and a great way to bring in the Doctor Who aspect.
