Melanie + Martin

Melanie and Martin’s beautiful December wedding at HPUMC and the Dallas Museum of Art was a blast to plan and was the perfect evening to celebrate the newlyweds! After spending the morning getting ready with her bridesmaids, Melanie put on her gorgeous gown, designed by Patti Flowers, before heading to the church for photos. Melanie and Martin opted for a first look, so the couple spent a few moments alone before it was time to walk down the aisle! The flowers at the church, by Garden Gate Floral, were in beautiful white and green hues–perfectly accenting the red poinsettias that were out for the Christmas season! After their ceremony, Melanie and Martin joined their family and friends at the Dallas Museum of Art for their reception. Garden Gate Floral’s flowers perfectly accented the space and played perfectly with the Chihuly glass installation. One of our favorite details was the “x” shaped mirrored communal tables with ghost chairs that sat right next to the Chihuly installation–a beautiful and creative way to add extra seating for guests! After first dances and a toast from the Father of the Bride, guests were treated to delicious food, with cakes by Dallas Affaires for dessert. The Bride’s cake featured five tiers and was simply decorated with a few white flowers. The Groom’s cake featured two tiers of chocolate cake topped with chocolate shavings and Reese’s peanut butter cups. After dining, the party moved to dancing with help from The Motts Band from Austin, Texas. The dance floor was packed the entire evening and, as an added surprise, costume pieces were passed out on the dance floor. After leaving their reception with a rose petal and falling snow sendoff, Melanie and Martin hopped into a waiting 1966 red convertible that had been decorated with an array of white and green flowers.

Thanks so much to all the vendors who helped make Melanie and Martin’s wedding the perfect evening!
