Vintage Meets Glam Wedding at the Historic Mason Dallas

[section title=”The Planning”]
[field title=”Wedding Colors”]White and green.[/field]
[field title=”Design / Vibe / Vision”]I wanted my wedding to be vintage and glam with a little dark moody twist. My venue, The Mason, did most of the work for me which was great! I still wanted the timeless look while letting the venue really shine through! So I really stuck with white flowers and neutral colors that really let the venue be the star of the show.[/field]
[field title=”Proposal Story”]Austin and I were going skiing with some friends at the end of December of 2021. This was an annual trip we have started taking with our friends Dan and Carley so I was not suspicious at all. We got in quite a bit earlier than our friends so Austin told me he made a cocktails reservation and a dinner reservation to celebrate my birthday early as my birthday is January 17th. He said it was a surprise which I thought was sweet so I just went with it and allowed him to lead the day! It was BLIZZARDING on our way from the airport to the Air Bnb so much so that we couldn’t see more than 10 feet in front of the car. I could tell Austin was nervous but he said driving in this weather was the cause. We got to the Air Bnb and quickly changed for dinner and headed into Vail Village. As soon as we parked the snow slowed to a beautiful flurry. As our cocktail location was a surprise to me I just let Austin lead the way via Google maps. We started walking behind buildings and there was no one else around and I started to question his navigation skills. We got to this gorgeous bridge that had a frozen creek beneath it and I stopped to take pictures. I remember Austin kind of urging me to keep walking which is unusual for him but I went with it. At the other end of the bridge I saw a girl and what appeared to be her boyfriend taking photos of her with a professional grade camera and I said out loud to Austin “Oh my gosh I think they are about to get engaged!”. I think at that moment he knew he was about to completely surprise me! As we got to the other end of the bridge he dropped to one knee and asked me to marry him! The photographers turned out to be for us and they captured the whole moment! It was such a sweet day and the way he planned every detail meant so much to me. I wish I could relive that moment over and over again![/field]

[section title=”The Fashion”]
[field title=”Wedding Gown”]My dress is “Sandra” by Sarah Seven. I purchased it at The Lovely Bride Dallas. I had been following Sarah Seven on Instagram for a while and LOVED how simple and elegant yet chic all of her dresses are. My top three dresses were all Sarah Seven but I just knew Sandra was the one! I loved the pearls that cover the entire dress and obviously the top tulle detail off the shoulders was just so stunning and unique. I actually got a different bottom from the stock version put on my dress. I wanted the longer train because it made me feel more bridal and I LOVE the way it turned out.[/field]
[field title=”Bridesmaid Dresses”]I got my Bridesmaids dresses from Birdy Grey. I loved the Emerald color and fabric and especially the price point. I didn’t want my bridesmaids spending a bunch of money for my wedding. I felt like the dress options allowed for each of my girls to find a dress that made them feel confident and beautiful! I think they looked so much more luxe than their price point and all of my bridesmaids said they fit so well and were comfortable![/field]
[field title=”Groomsman Attire”]The groomsman, my dad and Austin all got their navy blue tuxes from the BLK Tux. Austin said the process was so easy and they all looked really handsome. I really wanted the navy tux because I felt like it was a little trendier but as it was still a tux they were still a timeless look.[/field]

[board_carousel title=”Cocktail Hour”]

[section title=”The Details”]
[field title=”Food & Drink”]Our caterer was CN Catering out of Dallas and they really were the BEST to work with. All of the food was amazing! We had three kinds of passed hors d’oeurves during the cocktail hour; mac n’ cheese balls (a big hit!), crab wontons, and spicy chili chicken. For the main meal we had mixed green salads, pan seared chicken with tomatillo garlic cream sauce and queso fresco, garlic broccolini, and thyme roasted fingerling and sweet potatoes. Everything was wonderful!

For our drinks we had a full bar during the cocktail hour and reception portion of the night with a Margarita and Manhattan as our signature cocktails. During the dinner portion of the night we only did wine service. My dads good friend, Atsmon Shahar, owns his own winery, Piezo, so we exclusively served that all night. We served the 2017 Chardonnay as our white option and the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon as our red option. My family loved our wine so having a high quality wine option was really important to us![/field]
[field title=”Florals & Decor”]My florist was Pick a Daisy DFW. She did a great job capturing my vision. I wanted alot of baby’s breath and white roses as I thought those two together take up so much space and are so beautiful. I had tall baby’s breath arrangements at most of my guests tables and short rose and baby’s breath at the remaining guest tables. I had a long babys breath and rose arrangement going down the entire head table that was accompanied with so many candles! All of the columns were wrapped in greenery which i think made it feel like it was in a greenhouse! My alter was covered in greenery and white roses. It was all so beautiful. I would say my favorite thing about weddings is the flowers. They really make a brides whole vision come true! I wanted people to walk into dinner and be wowed by the florals at each table while also letting the natural beauty of my venue shine through as well.[/field]
[field title=”Wedding Cake”]*
Describe your wedding cake/sweets.
For dessert we did pie instead of cake! We got our delicious pies from Sweet Lucy’s Pies out of Fort Worth, TX. Lindsey was amazing to work with and her pies are to die for! We had three options: Smores, Carmel Apple, and Butterscotch Meringue.[/field]
[field title=”Readings, Ceremony Music, Reception Songs”]Our pastor, Graham McMillan, is a close friend so he already knew us well and really tailored our ceremony to us. I wanted our ceremony to be centered on Christ and set a precedent of God being the center of our marriage. Our good friend and groomsman, Jake Sesker, played piano and sang our processional songs which was so beautiful and special. Our band, The Little Wedding Band, handled the rest of the music for the night. They were AMAZING. Our dance floor was packed the entire reception. Everyone had so much fun and they really listened to what I wanted and created the best vibe for the evening![/field]
[field title=”Special Detail #1″]My bouquet was wrapped in Austin’s grandmothers gloves which was so special. [/field]
[field title=”Special Detail #2″]We wanted to include our dogs, Milton and Forest, in the wedding even though they weren’t able to join in on the fun so we had them on all all of our cocktail napkins and named our signature cocktails after each of them! [/field]
