A Southern Vintage Wedding at The Room On Main

Natalie & Aaron’s southern vintage wedding at Perkins Chapel and The Room On Main was so much fun to plan.  Their quirky personalities and love for one another brought so much joy to this special occasion and Natalie’s mom was truly their cheerleader of support and encouragement every step of the way.

The couple attended Oklahoma University where they had been friends for a while until one night Natalie asked Aaron to her annual date party.  They were inseparable from that moment on.

Two years later, Aaron planned an engagement that Natalie would never forget.  After taking her to dinner, he walked her to her car & handed her an envelope, which would begin a scavenger hunt of clues that would eventually lead her to her ‘Happily Ever After‘.  Aaron had been a mascot for three different teams in Oklahoma and had each mascot waiting with four red balloons to give to Natalie when she arrived to three of the four locations. Her first location was the Library where they first met with Routie from the Tulsa 66ers. The second location was O’Connell’s where they had their “first spark” with Dozer from the OKC Yard Dawgs.  Natalie’s third location was the tree where Aaron first told her he loved her with Volt from the WNBA Tulsa Shock.  Finally, her final location was the OU Tack & Field where Aaron was anxiously awaiting her arrival with friends & family hiding in the stands.  Marry Me” by Train was playing in the background and when she arrived Aaron read the significance of what each grouping of the balloons meant.  He asked her to marry him on bended knee and right as she said “Yes!” their friends and family jumped out screaming & shouting.  The ring flew out of Natalie’s hand and everyone hurried to find it.  Aaron bent down on his knee & asked her again.  This time, making sure the ring was on her finger.

Their wedding was just as creative and special.  Pops of blue, coral, green, lace, burlap and butterfly accents filled the room.  Handmade N’s & A’s were placed on each table with monogrammed birch vases.  Every table had its own unique vintage elements that added interest for guests’ eyes to view.

To no surprise, everyone was full of bubbling energy.  As soon as the glow necklaces came out, the crowd filled the dance floor and never sat down.  Of course the night wouldn’t be complete without mascots, Boomer and Volt making a surprise appearance.

As the night came to an end, guests lined the walkway waving ribbon wands adorned in their wedding colors.  In a sweet gesture of love, Natalie’s parents surprised them with a vintage Bentley for their departure.  They drove off into their new journey as husband and wife and have continued the fun and love ever since.

Mixing Trends :: A Real Wedding at The Room On Main in Dallas

Fads and trends have been swirling around the wedding world for centuries.  From dresses to décor, trends are what help feed our creative minds to build upon what’s popular and thus create new trends.  What’s become fashionable, is combing trends together to create an exclusive look.  Brides love to put their own unique spin of mixing styles to create their distinctive theme.

This is exactly what Texas A&M couple, Julie and Bryan Sansone’s January 26th wedding embodied. Wooden elements, from the tables to the centerpieces, mixed with metallics, white floral and soft uplighting created an ambiance of natural brilliance.

Mixing glam and nature together in a design may not be for everyone, but Julie and Bryan’s casual yet bold personalities made this combination a perfectly balanced infusion.  And their reception venue, The Room on Main in Dallas, helped to complete the look.

When attempting to tie in your own style to a current wedding trend, it’s important to stay true to your taste, and slowly weave in the trend wherever you have the right opportunity.  Julie has very fun yet elegant taste and wanted to create an atmosphere that would exemplify this, but would be different from any other wedding out there.  So she chose to pair elegant tufted banquettes, shantung silk linen and custom runners with tablescapes containing rustic woods, soft floral, gold, platinum and bronze metallics, and glimmering candlelight designed by Expressions of Décor.

The ambiance of this couple’s wedding reception is one that their guests won’t easily forget.  The father of the bride kicked the night off right with an awesome guitar solo during the father-daughter dance.  Blue Bell Ice Cream, from where the groom works, was passed out with the cake that was beautifully decorated by Frosted Art Bakery.  The couple’s alma mater fight song was sang by majority of guests’ as they swayed back n’ forth belting out the words as loud as they could.
