Michael and Zara Agnew | Dallas Wedding Coordinator

I met Zara while working in Product Development at Fossil Corporate. Her desk ended up being directly behind mine and we both determined it was meant to be when I found out she was engaged and she discovered I was a wedding coordinator! Zara’s vision was vintage and with the expertise of florist Rene` Watten, her vision became a reality. One of my favorite details of Michael and Zara’s wedding were the family wedding dresses and photos she displayed at her reception. How fitting for a fashion merchandising major and what a great opportunity to display a legacy of happy marriages! eephotome.zbma.wedding-17 eephotome.zbma.wedding-27 eephotome.zbma.wedding-5 eephotome.zbma.wedding-31 eephotome.zbma.wedding-42 eephotome.zbma.wedding-47 eephotome.zbma.wedding-60 eephotome.zbma.wedding-63 eephotome.zbma.wedding-73 eephotome.zbma.wedding-81 eephotome.zbma.wedding-82 eephotome.zbma.wedding-113 eephotome.zbma.wedding-775 eephotome.zbma.wedding-720 eephotome.zbma.wedding-83 eephotome.zbma.wedding-99 eephotome.zbma.wedding-713 eephotome.zbma.wedding-746 eephotome.zbma.wedding-787 eephotome.zbma.wedding-133

Dawson and Page Clark | Dallas Wedding | Dallas Wedding Coordinator

Dawson and Page married on a beautiful spring day that could not have gone more perfectly. The ceremony progressed without a hitch (well maybe just one) and was followed by a magazine worthy reception, which is fitting considering the mother of the bride, Margaret Stafford, is a publisher of one of Dallas’ most prominent magazines. Page traded her lace capelet and veil for a single orchid so that she could join her guests comfortably as they danced the night away amidst a stunning view of downtown Dallas.  The night ended too soon with a sparkler exit and a taco truck to greet guests with a midnight snack as they waited for their cars. Dawson and Page truly thought of everything to ensure their guests had a night to remember!

Austin and Courtney Goolsby | McKinney Wedding | McKinney Wedding Coordinator

Boots, branches, burlap and a side of fried chicken and you’ve got the recipe for Austin and Courtney’s fabulous upscale rustic wedding.

The venue, formally an authentic textile cotton mill, was charming and vintage with cascading waterfalls, exposed brick and wood-beamed ceilings. Courtney wanted her wedding to be rustic and elegant but also wanted guests to have a good time. At the reception, most guests crowded the dance floor while others returned for seconds catered by Babe’s Chicken. You can’t go wrong when you’re catering Babe’s. You just can’t. Courtney and her dad started off the party with their own spin on the traditional father/daughter dance, complete with a choreographed dance to their own upbeat mix.

I also want to give Courtney a shout out for her wedding-day look. Her updo had to be one of my favorite wedding hairstyles of all time…certainly Pinterest worthy.

Patrick and Kendra Drew | Dallas Wedding | Dallas Wedding Coordinator

This wedding I am posting today is near and “deer” to my heart because it is my cousin Kendra’s wedding. Kendra and Patrick’s Fall wedding was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever helped coordinate. Also one of the most difficult weddings I’ve ever coordinated since I was a bridesmaid too! Regardless, the weekend was perfect and the weather cooperated beautifully which was lucky for us since we didn’t really have a back up plan.

One of the things I loved most about Kendra and Patrick’s wedding is how traditional they were with their wedding. My aunt (and mom) married at the same location that Kendra chose to have her reception and thus there are many photos that reflect sweet traditions passed down from generation to generation. Additionally, the bride and groom incorporated activities that reflected their own personalities. The theme of the wedding was “Antlers and Lace” since the groom loves to hunt and the bride loves all things pretty. Kendra is an artist, so they set up a “Paint by Number” table for guests to participate in during the hors d’oeuvres hour. Patrick loves to fish so guests were provided real worms and fishing poles to fish in the creek near the reception location. There was a photo booth, furniture where guests could lounge, a fire to roast smores and at the end of the night, a mesmerizing Chinese lantern lighting. Every detail was well thought out and lucky for us, Erin Woolsey was there to capture it all.

In true fashion, Robert, better known as “Bobert”, forgot his suit in time for pictures.

And here comes the fun part. These next few photos are pictures from my aunt Kelly’s wedding in 1983 against her daughter Kendra’s wedding in 2012. These photos are taken in the exact same locations, 29 years apart!

And then there’s this photo…
We just had to take the opportunity to imitate the infamous Bridesmaids movie…

 Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Drew!!!

Creative Groomsmen Photos

Groomsmen tend to provide the comic relief for an otherwise stressful day. Below are a few of my favorite photos of groomsmen who know how to celebrate.

This photo by EE Photography includes the bridesmaids too…
 Ok you caught me. These are Tommy Hilfiger models but what they lack in humor they make up for in appearance. 🙂
And my all time favorite…
Have a happy Friday and for those of you getting hitched this weekend, have FUN!
