Fairytale Wedding at The Omni Dallas Hotel

Staci and David met on New Year’s Day 2016, a year after their best friends had first started trying to set them up. David came into town for the Michigan State game at the Cotton Bowl and bribed a friend for the chance to meet Staci. They dated for almost two years before he proposed on a weekend getaway at his favorite beach in Indian Shores, Florida.

The couple started planning their dream wedding at the Omni Dallas. Staci knew she wanted bright and vibrant shades of purple and pink, with a classic fairytale theme, and Freesia was more than happy to oblige! She says, “I wanted the flowers to be a focal point, and Lauren put that vision to life perfectly and it all made me feel like a princess.” Linens by BBJ Linen provided the perfect backdrop for the bright florals. With dramatic arrangements on every table, and a breathtaking chuppah from Father of the Bride exquisitely covered in vivid violet hydrangeas, fuschia calla lilies, stunning vanda orchids, and the brightest pink roses, the ceremony and reception were a fairytale fantasy.

Staci wore a stunning lace gown by Justin Alexander from Lasting Bridal, and her bridesmaids wore radiant orchid dresses by Dessy, from Nordstrom. Staci looked every bit the princess, with hair and makeup by TC Makeup. Capturing the day on camera was Shannon Skloss, and videographers from Thompson Pictures. Carlson Craft created the elegant invitations for the wedding weekend’s festivities.

One of Staci’s favorite memories of the wedding was the First Look with her father and with David. “I knew my dad had waited his whole life for that moment, and it was so special for it happen so perfectly.”

Staci made her way down the aisle accompanied by her parents. “Even with 270 people, it felt like David and I were the only ones in the room.”

Once it was time for the reception, In10City Band played all of Staci and David’s favorites, and kept the crowd dancing. Staci says “I don’t think I even left the dance floor until Steel City Pops arrived.” The couples stunning cake was created by Lo at Sweet Thangs. Looking back, Staci only wishes she had more time to experience the night. “It flew by like everyone said it would!”

Staci and David departed the wedding in a picture perfect sea of bubbles, ending a night that was a dream come true.

It was an honor to be part of this sweet couple’s special day. We wish all the blessings life has to offer. Mazel tov to Staci and David!

 

Classic Southern Wedding at University Hall at Oak Lawn Park

Lexi and Andy both share pride in their alma mater, The University of Alabama, which they both attended when they met. Their paths first crossed as interns in Washington D.C. They stayed friends all summer long, and starting dating back in Alabama that fall. Six years later, Andy proposed on the steps at the Lincoln Memorial, back in the special city where they first met.

When it came time to start planning their wedding, Lexi and Andy knew they wanted a joyful event, with timeless southern touches. Arlington Hall at Oak Lawn Park was the perfect venue for their ceremony and reception.

BBJ Linen provided beautiful linens to tie in the elegant tablescapes. Freesia, our sister company, helped to bring the timeless southern look to life with florals in shades of ivory and green, as well as perfectly seasonal cherry blossoms.

Uptown Violins played classic arrangements for the couple’s outdoor ceremony, and The Motion Band with Absolute Entertainment kept the party going all night long with music and lighting. Stephanie Brazzle Photography, along with Soulbox Productions Videography, captured every moment for Lexi and Andy and their families to cherish for a lifetime. Lexi and her bridal party got ready with TC Makeup doing hair and makeup.

 

The stunning wedding cake from Frosted Art stood out, alongside a festive groom’s cake honoring The University of Alabama! Catering and impeccable service was provided by Food Glorious Food.

The couple had an Alabama-inspired send-off, and departed in a vintage car from DFW Vintage Cars.

Wishing every happiness to Lexi and Andy in their future together! Roll Tide!
