Lee was working part-time at a cigar shop over the holidays and Naser was a regular customer. The pair struck up a friendship and remembered one another when their paths crossed again five years later. Naser noticed Lee and a friend chatting in one of the cigar shops he owned and asked Lee to join him for dinner at Javier’s. They became close friends over the next few years and finally found themselves in love. With Lee constantly traveling as a flight attendant, they didn’t get to see one another much so she left the airlines to work for Naser’s company full time. They were engaged shortly after and set out to plan a wedding to remember.

Nothing makes us happier than sharing a beautiful wedding…and Fridays of course! With the help of wedding planner Meredith Commender, Kathryn and Nick’s celebration at The Room on Main was one for the books. The day was packed with sweet sentiments, lush florals from Lush Couture Floral and lots of fun and laughter. One of our favorite details were the hand-sewn signs for the back of the bride and groom chairs. Kathryn’s mother surprised the couple with the signs that read “Avere” and “Tenere” which means “to have” and “to hold” in Italian — a nod to Nick’s Italian heritage. Kathryn looked simply stunning in her Monique Lhuillier lace gown from The Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus. Another fun detail? You may recognize one of the groomsmen as the Dallas Mavericks’ very own Dirk Nowitzki!
