Emma & Stuart hosted a beautiful and classic wedding in the heart of Dallas. Guests were first introduced to the lovely design through their letterpressed and foil stamped invitations with custom watercolor venue drawings created by Significantly Said: Invitations by Significant Events. Bridesmaids wore blush and carried lovely blooms of ivories and blush. Emma was radiant and royal in her silk ballgown with crystal headpiece and cascading orchid bouquet. The ceremony was held in the most beautiful church with vaulted ceilings and stained glass windows. The reception was held in a 100 year old hotel in the heart of downtown filled with so many unique architectural elements. The ballroom sparkled with crystal chandeliers extended above a white dance floor. Tables were adorned with gorgeous blush and ivory florals atop ivory linens. The head table was especially grand with tall florals and candles! After sampling the delicious dinner stations, guests got to taste the incredible cakes – Emma’s was a classic buttercream creation accented with fresh florals, and Stewart’s was the most amazing rendering of the stadium of his alma mater – the University of Alabama! Alabama and Texas A&M battled it out on the dance floor for most energetic fight song, which was such a blast! The party continued throughout the night dancing to the music of the DJ and enjoying late night snacks of boozy milkshakes and Whataburger chicken biscuits. The night ended with a sparkler send-off into a classic car.

There are no words to describe how thankful we are to have had you to guide us in preparing for our wedding and to, now, have your friendship in our lives! From day one, we had 100% confidence that you would bring our lifelong wedding dreams to reality. You truly exceeded any vision we have had. You made every single moment on this journey stress-free and full of joy for my family. There was not a moment where I didn’t feel your support – from late night texts to quick fixes on the wedding day! You were there every step of the way. Your attention to detail gave us the greatest gift – to actually enjoy my wedding planning experience, free of stress (which is usually tough for me). You connected us with the perfect team of vendors who exuded your same spirit. Because of this, we can look back on our wedding day and remember it as the best day of our lives. We would not change a single thing. The moment we walked into the ballroom brought tears to our eyes and took our breath away. Every detail was perfect! And as happy as we were when the night ended and our life began, we were sad to close the chapter with you and our vendors. We want to experience the day 1,000,000 times again, just as it was! Thank you for this gift and thank you again for your continued friendship!”
