I have some breath taking photos from Cortnye and Beau’s wedding in April. Their ceremony and reception took place at the very contemporary 129 Leslie. They decided to do a First Look at the hotel where they were going to be staying the night at NYLO Hotel Dallas on South Side. Everything about their wedding really showed off their styling from their DIY Photo Lounge to Cortnye’s beautiful wedding dress. 🙂
The bride and her bridesmaids got ready go the very eclectic Nylo Hotel Dallas on South Side Lamar. This hotel has become iconic as it has the “South Side” on top of the building. The natural light that flowed through the room allowed Whitney Bennett of Whitney Bennett Photography to capture the true beauty of Cortnye’s unique style.
The bride purchased her dress in the formal wear section of Nordstrom.
Cortnye and Beau decided to do a First Look prior to their ceremony as they wanted to have a private moment for just the two of them. As a wedding planner, I have become a fan of First Look’s as they allow for formal pictures to be gotten out of the way prior to the ceremony. It also allows the couple to lose themselves completely in the moment.
The couple were married in front a backdrop that hand done by the bride. The backdrop had altering ribbons of blush. It was hung with gold chains. They exchanged personally written vows to each other that left many a tear stained cheek.
The couple’s reception was in the same building. The guests walked out of the ceremony space and they were invited into the reception space. There was a short cocktail hour before their reception that featured stations of Tacos and Custom Mac ‘n Cheese bars. The couple also decided on having a dessert bar with a small cake for cutting. All desserts and cake were provided by Tart Bakery. The guests were treated the DJ stylings of Mike Mahnich, which always keep the dance floor full!
The couple exited into a shower of bubbles.
