Dallas weddings never fail to wow. That’s a given. The folks down there just seem to know how to mix sweet with stylish, and they never miss the change to sprinkle in a bit of glam wherever they can. That’s why this beauty captured by Amy Herfurth Photography is making me smile from ear to ear right now, and you can join me in doing just that right here.

From the Bride…My wedding day was absolutely perfect! From the flowers and the linens to the cake and the music, everything was exactly how imagined it. I wanted my wedding day to feel like a dream with soft colors and delicate fabrics to make me feel like I was floating on a cloud. My husband and I wanted a ceremony that would mix both of our religious backgrounds – I am Jewish and he is Christain. Rabbi David Gruber officiated the cermony under a beautiful chuppa draped in delicate chiffon fabric and tied back with large bouquets of flowers on both sides. We had a ketubah which we signed during the ceremony and my husband broke the glass at the end but we also included a unity candle to represent his background. The reception was decorated with gorgeous soft pink and ivory roses and peonies with pops of pale yellow and coral flowers to add extra color. The vases we used were oversized mercury glass for the head tables making the arrangements tower over the table but be tall enough to not block the view of people having conversation. The other guest tables had large, shallow bowls overflowing with flowers. Each table had a mixture of candleabras and glass vases for candles. One of my favorite parts of the whole night was the photo booth provided by 4Flashes. All of our guests, young and old, loved sneaking in the booth for a quick pic with a variety of prop selections. We loved the photo album we got at the end of the night with little notes from our guests next to their photo strip. Our night ended at the gorgeous Hotel St. Germain in uptown Dallas. Our wedding was more amazing than I could have ever imagined!

This, loves, is traditional elegance done oh-so-right. The kind of magical affair where drop-dead gorgeous stylings mix and mingle with stunning florals from The Garden Gate and the breathtaking setting known as The Adolphus. It’s what we here at SMP call “pure, unadulterated perfection” and you can see every last magical moment captured by Ivy Weddings right here in the full gallery.
From Ivy Weddings… If you asked us to plan a wedding that captured all of the elegance, regal history, and romance of Dallas, we couldn’t have done it better than Elizabeth and Justin did. The century-old romantic baroque Adolphus Hotel, once named “the most beautiful building west of Venice,” served as the perfect backdrop to their gorgeous day. With a stunning pastel floral palette by The Garden Gate and an exquisite cake and matching cupcakes by acclaimed Dallas bakery Frosted Art, all the details fell into place for the perfect expression of refined style. Elizabeth and Justin tied the knot in front of family and friends, and danced the night away to live music.
From the Bride… We rented a 15-passenger van the day before the wedding. Justin drove some of out-of-town family to the Bishop Arts district to have authentic Texas bbq and pie. They enjoyed it so much, some went back again before they flew home. On the morning of the wedding, Justin played golf with a group, including my Dad. My bridesmaids, my mom and I spent the day getting ready and watching Aggie football. After this, we were overjoyed to see that our hopes and planning for an elegant wedding had come off without a hitch. Our favorite splurges included having a live band. Justin’s favorite part of the day was saying “I do.” My favorite part of the day was getting to marry Justin, and sharing that experience with some of our closest friends and family.

If I were to get married tomorrow, this would be my wedding. A laid-back, yet seriously elegant affair that mixes all kinds of romance with a stunningly awesome urban setting. It’s a gorgeous lakeside ceremony meets vibrant hues meets a whole lot of lovely captured by Sara & Rocky Photography… and it’s the perfect way to spend your Tuesday morning. Join me in the gallery for all of the pretty.
From Sara & Rocky Photography… Hayley and Matt were wed this past summer in Dallas at The Filter Building, a gorgeous lakeside venue that creates a perfect mix of a natural and industrial setting. Hayley is an interior designer, so the details were perfectly put together. The outdoor ceremony was gorgeous with the lake as the background and all of the colors popping against the blue water. We LOVED Hayley and Matt’s laid-back, intimate wedding!
