Coming Soon, Mr. & Mrs. Miller!

Carly and Daniel are our next couple to be married! They were originally scheduled for a big wedding, followed by a reception at the Nasher Sculpture Center, this weekend. Carly and Daniel opted instead to postpone the large celebration until next year due to COVID-19. That said, they still plan to have a small, intimate ceremony this weekend with a nice dinner at Carly’s mother’s home.

We wanted to share their story, and some of their engagement photos taken at the Nasher Sculpture Center earlier this year by Matt & Julie Weddings.

We first met back in 2011 during our college years in Worcester, Massachusetts. Daniel led a group of men from WPI sent to fill out the Clark University Choir’s men’s sections, while Carly was the choir’s teaching assistant. We hit it off right away and began dating a year later.

We stayed in Worcester for a few more years while Carly finished undergrad and entered the job market as a geriatric case manager. In the meantime, Daniel completed both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in robotics engineering.

In 2015, we hit the road driving cross country with our adorable cat, Shadow, to our new home in San Jose, California. Daniel found his dream job working for a self-driving car startup while Carly finished a master’s degree in social work and now works as the Lead Social Worker for an elder services agency.

Last summer during Carly’s family reunion, we decided to make it official. Daniel proposed in front of Carly’s dad’s side of the family and she said yes! We are so excited to begin this next chapter of our lives together and cannot wait to celebrate!

While it might not be the weekend they envisioned, we are so excited for them to become husband and wife, and that we get to play a part in this weekend as well as the big celebration for 2021!

Coming Soon – Mr. and Mrs. Sulak!

We are gearing up for our next wedding this weekend! Emily and Jared are going to be married at Holy Trinity Catholic Church and then have their reception at Union Station. Emily shared their love story with us, and there’s no better way to post it then in her own words! Read below for the details on these two with some gorgeous engagement photos by Shannon Skloss Photography.

Jared and I met at Holy Trinity Church, the same church where we will be getting married. It’s funny to hear our friends tell their sides of “How Jared and Emily met” because it turns out, Jared and I were both trying to get the courage to speak to each other for a few weeks.

It was one Sunday evening mass and I looked over my right shoulder and see this very tall & handsome man few pews behind me wearing a bright pink polo. I kept trying to find reasons to turn around to catch another look at him. I was hoping he would come to mass the following week so I could try and sit next to him. Sure enough, he was there but the seats next to him were taken, so I sat a couple pews behind him. This time we caught eyes a few more times. After mass, Jared was walking directly behind me, and I was praying he would say something. But he just kept walking to his car.

The following week he finally spoke. He told me how hot it was outside. Being the end of July in Texas, it wasn’t the most creative pick up line, but it was a start. The next week it was my turn to give it a try, and since he was wearing a short sleeve polo, I made a joke about how he finally dressed weather appropriate. Jared laughed, and then asked if I had any plans that evening. He then asked me if I would like to go to dinner with him right then and there. Our first date was very spontaneous, but I loved it. After that Sunday night dinner, we never stopped dating.

A week before our 3 year anniversary of that first date, Jared asked me to marry him. He really wanted to surprised me, and that he did. I was sure he was going to do it on our actual anniversary and kept asking him “what are we doing next week?” Little did I know, my best friend, Hannah, who used to work in the alcohol sales business, asked if Jared and I would like to attend a Wine Event for her company at the Nasher Sculpture Center. Jared picked me up in an Uber (I don’t know how he was so calm) and we drove to the event. When we got there, there was no one in the lobby except for a security guard, photographer and 2 event ladies. They assured me that everyone for the event was all downstairs, so I didn’t think twice.

Then when the photographer said “before you head down, can I grab a photo of you two” I actually declined at first because I thought it was awkward to take a photo without saying hi to Hannah at her event. But Jared really wanted a photo, so we walked out to the courtyard and took a few photos. Jared then turns to me mid photo and starts saying really sweet things. My first reaction was “you’re so sweet, but you’re making the photographer uncomfortable haha” then I looked into Jared’s eyes and I knew this was the moment I was praying for.

We can’t wait for their wedding this weekend and to work with an amazing vendor team – Shannon Skloss Photography, Branching Out Events, Fancy Cakes by Lauren, BBJ Linen, The Motion Band, Dallas Wilson Wedding Films, Posh Couture Rentals, Bella Acento, Shag Carpet Event Props, Stage 2 Lighting, Beauty and the Blush, Marquee Event Rentals, Centerstage Floors, Mir Mir Photobooth, DFW Vintage Cars and more!

Happy Anniversary, Erica and Austin!

Today marks one year since Erica and Austin’s wedding and, boy, was it a fun one! It’s quite possible we have never seen a bride break it down on the dance floor quite like Erica did – and the father-daughter dance, followed by a harmonica jam session on stage, only added even more to the evening!

You definitely want to scroll down to see some beautiful (and fun!) images of their Church of the Incarnation wedding and reception at 3015 at Trinity Groves by Elisabeth Carol!

What can we say about this one? Julianne is a special client to us – not only was this our second time to work with her family to plan a wedding, but she’s also become one of our amazing assistants on some wedding days!

Their wedding truly transformed Royal Lane Baptist Church and the ballroom at The Four Seasons Club and Resort Dallas at Las Colinas with loads of white florals. Here’s a recap of their wedding day with some gorgeous images by Perez Photography

Happy Anniversary, Luke and Joe!

I bet that none of us thought we’d be celebrating Luke and Joe‘s first wedding anniversary in a quarantine! Luke and Joe’s wedding is definitely a great one to reflect back on – from the dance floor that lit up, to the fun details and unique ceremony (everyone stood around the dance floor and watched these two say their vows – without a dry eye in the room)!

Let’s lift our spirits and take a look down memory lane at this wedding and reception at The Adolphus Hotel with some gorgeous pictures by Tony Valadez Photography!
