Ice Skating Party

I live in Texas so I’m not going to act like I’m ever going to get to throw a party like this one (unless it’s on the mall ice rink) but a girl can dream right? It snowed here this weekend though and I’m just so jealous of all you northerners who could have snow parties any day of the winter if you wanted! We’d be crazy to try and plan a party around snow in the south! For those of you who are blessed enough to see snow more than once during the winter, check out this enchanting ice skating party by Kate of Beautiful Days Weddings and Events

Sammy and Crystal Duran

I was thrilled when Crystal approached me about doing her wedding mostly because she is a sorority sister and dear friend of mine but also because I knew it was going to be an event to remember. Not only did they pick an incredible venue, the bride and groom share a love for breakfast foods and chose yogurt parfaits, an omelet station and a donut cake as their reception dinner of choice! The ceremony took place in a quaint chapel at Watermark Church and the reception at the oh so eccentric Seven Senses. AND if the evening wasn’t already magical enough, it snowed! For those of you who aren’t from Dallas, snow in March is quite rare. Here’s a bit of eye candy courtesy of Korie Lynn Photography.

Crystal’s maid of honor, Erin Woolsey, happens to be a talented wedding photographer as well and solicited the help of her husband Brad to create this incredible stop motion video of the day’s events…enjoy!!!

Matthew and Casey Hanna

I knew from the moment I met Pam and Casey Myers that this wedding was going to be a joy to coordinate. My predictions were confirmed when Sally and Matthew Hanna joined us for the walk-through at Northwood Club. Both the Myers and the Hannas treated me, the coordinator, like I was part of the family. In fact, when I came to pick up bridesmaid dresses at the bridal luncheon, Pam insisted that I stay for lunch! Both families were as sweet as they could be and have remained friends of mine long after the wedding festivities were over!

Matthew and Casey married on a cool December evening at University Park United Methodist Church in the midst of the Christmas season. This group knew how to have fun…so much so that they chose “Stroken” as their last song before leaving the reception! It doesn’t get much better than that!

The proud mother of the bride, Mrs. Pamela Myers!
Matthew was more of a cheesecake fan so instead of a groom’s cake, Northwood passed mini cheesekcakes after the cake cutting!
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Hanna!
