Ashley and Clay wanted a wedding filled with elegance, glamour, and sophistication, and this vision came together beautifully. Their wedding was held in a historic Dallas hotel with the charm of a bygone era. Ashley wore a breathtaking couture gown and carried her lush and flowing bouquet in reds, pinks, and greens. Bridesmaids wore glamorous gold and carried bouquets in the same shades as Ashley’s. Their ceremony ballroom was romantic and surreal, with crystal candleabras flanking the aisle as Ashley walked towards Clay standing at their altar of ivory draping, gold candle walls, blush uplighting, and dramatic floral arrangements. Cocktail hour featured signature cocktails with Clay’s favorite Old Fashioneds and Ashley’s favorite: Champagne! Champagne with a submerged hibiscus flower to be exact! The reception ballroom was exquisite with gold linens and gold chivari chairs, crystal and gold chargers, and beautiful red and pink floral arrangements. The head table featured several crystal candleabras for a dramatic and stunning look. Chandeliers hung around the room for added sparkle. Following a delicious plated dinner, cake was served alongside a champagne tower. Such a fun element! A fabulous party band kept the dance floor packed, and a live wedding painter captured the entire event on canvas. Breakfast tacos and mini donuts were served as a late night snack before the flutterfetti send-off. For extra fun, Ashley & Clay stopped at 7-11 after their wedding for Slurpees and a silly memory of the fact that their wedding was on July 11th! Such a wonderful event!

"My hair and make-up artist is a sweetheart and so talented. She made me, my mother, and my girls look amazingly beautiful! Everything at our venue ended up absolutely perfect and beautiful. Everyone really went all out. I can’t think of anything I would change. Our guests were very impressed with the food….My florists were so sweet and wonderful to work with. My bridal bouquet was absolutely gorgeous, as was the rest of the floral….The décor for our ceremony was absolutely gorgeous, unique, and romantic. We also really appreciated the free upgrade in chargers for the reception….Our band was phenomenal. Our guests absolutely loved them and had so many compliments….The cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious. It was perfect! We froze the top layer and recently ate it for our one year “engage-a-versary” on 8/8, and it was still moist and delicious!….Our wedding photos are wonderful. It goes without saying that our photographers are amazing people and so fun to be around, in addition to being immensely talented. And during the ceremony and reception we hardly noticed them at all. They were like unobtrusive photo ninjas…..….The cost for lighting seemed a bit much at first, but after seeing it in action, I can say that it is worth every penny. I loved how the reception lighting changed throughout the night. The beautiful lighting and chandeliers definitely played a huge part in how gorgeous the reception looked….Our officiant was so easy to work with, incredibly professional, and excellent at his job. So many of our guests commented on what a great job he did and asked us where we found him!…Our wedding painter was constantly swarmed by our very impressed guests! And our painting is an amazing and one-of-a-kind keepsake that will we treasure for years to come…..Meredith, so many of our guests said that our wedding was the most fun and most beautiful wedding that they had ever been to! Over a month later, people are still gushing over the wedding to us. And, of course, we had an amazing time and were able to fully enjoy the event (and food and drink!) without having to worry about anything at all. There is no way we could have pulled it off without Meredith and her team. She was amazing to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone else who needs event planning!"
"Meredith, you and your team did a spectacular job on coordinating everything for Ashley & Clay’s wedding. Our guests had nothing but positive comments on the wedding, and my friends are still talking about it! The comments were that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Everything ran so smoothly. Thanks so much for all your hard work!”
