Classic-Chic Dallas Wedding

When you pair a restored industrial building like the Hickory Street Annex with gilded detailing, touches of green and loads of ivory blooms, it’s sure to be a classic, yet chic wedding in the making. And it sooo works. Not to mention, the backdrop makes for some seriously pretty bridal portraits of the stunning Bride, who was glowing thanks to Elan Makeup Studio! It’s a cozy, candlelit kind of gallery from Chapa Images that you won’t want to miss.

From the beautiful Bride… When my husband & I searched for the venue to get married at, we ran across a “hidden gem” that was right outside of downtown Dallas called Hickory Street Annex. Talk about amazing… an old 1900’s oil distribution center that was restored with its original character—beautiful, exposed brick & beams, nearly 360 degree view of windows, & my favorite– the old, but WORKING elevator shaft. This venue couldn’t have been more perfect for us- a place large enough to hold a ceremony AND reception while providing a classy/ chic/ industrial look, and a shuttle service to/from the hotel. The downstairs was used for the bridal suite and “Cocktail Hour”, while the upstairs was used for the ceremony & reception.

The day-of, I had a group of loving and devoted family and friends help me set up my dream wedding- including a vast amount of Pinterest- inspired ideas. From a “Cookie Bar” to a “Cigar Bar,” all personally made decisions on each little detail. We had old window panes to list our Seating Chart, corks to hold each name’s place card, customized Etsy koozies, “dancing shoes” (Old Navy flip flops) for dancing at the reception, and large (empty) wine barrels to use as cocktail tables/ sign holders. Every corner you turned, there were mini mason jars that had little votive candles inside, mason jars topped with hydrangeas and filled with photos & oil to make it look like “old photographs,” and even an old wooden door just to add a little rustic/chic look. We also had a photo booth for some fun reception memories!

The night finished with “send-off” sparklers (which also made for some awesome photos), and a “carriage ride” (a surprise from my parents) just like Cinderella! The whole wedding day/ night was perfect, but what I loved the most was being with my husband to see all the DIY/ personally-made touches/decorations/decisions all come together!

From Jennifer Yarbro PhotographyChristine and Beau had a elegant southern wedding at Christ the King Catholic Church and gorgeous ballroom reception at The Adolphus Hotel. This wedding was filled with personal touches from the handpicked robes for the bridesmaids to the duet performance by the brides brother and father. Christine and Beau being the dog lovers they are each got ready with their pups. To get Beau even more excited to see Christine the bridesmaids sent the groom a photo with a message before the wedding saying ” just wait ’til you see her.” The couple had a traditional catholic ceremony with the blessing of a mantilla lace and beaded lasso. Christine carried a portrait of her grandparents on her bouquet and their family rosary. Although they were married in a traditional Catholic Church the couples reception was held in downtown Dallas which made the perfect backdrop for pictures. Elegant, intimate, and romantic was the theme of the reception. Each table number had a location the couple traveled to together and had a brief description of their trip. The ballroom was lit up pink and had candles everywhere. The brides father and brother serenaded the couple during dinner. Later in the evening the entire wedding party surprised the couple with a flash mob style dance. For those who made it until the end mini slidders were hand passed. Soon after guest saw them off with a confetti send off into their horse drawn carriage. It was truly a magical night!

Modern Downtown Dallas Wedding

When I first started peeling back the layers of this Dallas “I do,” one thing became clear: Connie and Tyler aren’t your average bride and groom. Not even close. They’ve got contagious joy and style for days, but they also happen to have the kind of dance moves that would make Justin Timerlake jealous, and we’ve got the video to prove it! Take a peek at their incredible celebration captured by Michelle Boyd and sit tight for their choreographed first dance (and proposal!) coming up next.

From Michelle Boyd PhotographyConnie and Tyler Bates are visionaries. They both live life with a contagious passion that you just can’t help but join in on. I’ve known Connie for a few years, and after seeing their incredible proposal video I knew that their wedding would be EPIC. They didn’t disappoint.

Nestled in the heart of downtown Dallas, TX, the Room on Main was transformed into a space worthy of the production that was to follow. Both Connie and Tyler have invested a large part of their lives into leadership through performance, and their wedding celebration was a perfect reflection of that. Their modern yet bold fashion allowed for their fierceness to shine through, and their hearts for traveling to the nations were manifested in globes and maps all around the room.

In the true Bates way of celebrating, their ceremony and reception was complete with videos and dancing in abundance! Ingredients dance company moved the processional down the aisle and led guests in worship during communion… and fittingly, everything built up to their first dance as husband and wife, complete with amazing choreography and a perfect wardrobe change. With such an incredibly talented group of guests in attendance, it was no wonder that the dance party to follow was a high-energy, amazing experience!
