Stacey & Ryan selected 6500 for both wedding & reception because they loved the lofty heights of the ceiling. Not to mention the white painted bricks, and lots of space to make their dream wedding come true.
Their goal was a romantic, simply elegant affair, complete with those lofty ceilings, including a beautiful chandelier above the area where the ceremony took place. Stacey says she just loved that chandelier.
Stacey found her dress at Bridal Boutique of Lewisville, she says she doesn’t know the designer, all she knew was it was THE DRESS. Her shoes were Jimmy Choo’s from Neiman Marcus (gold with glitter). Stacey called on her best friends for her jewelry & veil. The diamond drop earrings came from one friend, who also wore them in her wedding. They are also Stacey’s something old. The veil came from another friend, that served as the something borrowed. It looked amazing with Stacey’s dress. Being able to incorporate these items meant a great deal, as Stacey was the last of the group to get married. So now, they have these special things to share.
Ryan’s best friend’s wife, Alex did all the girls’ hair plus the moms, while Shelby, the bride’s best friend, did all the makeup! Being able to have her own team to do hair & makeup helped to make it a more intimate morning with everyone she loved.
The guys all got their tux’s from Mens Wearhouse, they were Vera Wang.
Stacey & Ryan elected to do a first look, which can be so emotional!
All invitations & stationary was done by the bride’s sister & Maid of Honor. In keeping with the simple, elegant style of the wedding, all was white, with gold text. The flowers were done by R Love Florals. Raquel is a friend of Stacey’s, and an amazing florist! She puts everything into each & every wedding, and Stacey was more than happy with the flowers. They were a variety of white/ivory flowers, with pops of purple. It was a wide variety of flowers, and there were beautiful arrangements everywhere.
The wedding cake was done by Panini Bakery. Stacey describes it as 5 layers of deliciousness! The 1st layer was white cake with vanilla almond buttercream frosting. The 2nd layer was chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream frosting filling. The 3rd layer was raspberry with whipped cream frosting filling, and the 5th layer was a repeat of the first. YUM!
The couple went with an open bar, after all, it was their wedding, and everyone should have a great time! i Stacey’s father’s hotel head chef did the catering, and what a feast! There was chicken stuffed with feta & spinach, a prime rib station, salmon with lemon butter, a salad bar with both house salad, and caesar salad. Au gratin potatoes, mixed seasoned veggies, wild rice & fresh rolls completed the meal.
Cameron Fox of I Entertainment had DJ honors. He kept the party rocking all night, too. Actually, the dancing was one of Stacey’s most memorable moments. She says having everyone in your life that you love dancing away the night in one room is priceless. Neither of them wanted the night to end.
The photobooth was provided by Flock Together Fotobooth, and the couple both say they were amazing.
Alex Espinoza from LP Cinema Magic was the videographer. He actually did Stacey’s best friend’s wedding, and she was so impressed with his work, she knew they had to use him.
The Tuesday after the wedding, Stacey & Ryan jetted away to St Lucia where they stayed at the Grande Sandals resort. St Lucia was on both bucket lists, so that was a natural. Can you say Best Honeymoon Ever?
