Desiring a classic wedding that was reflective of their faith, Katlin and Zachary chose to have a traditional ceremony in a church followed by a reception at an art museum. On the morning of the ceremony, bridesmaids helped the bride into her striking strapless gown. Katlin wore her hair in loose curls with a sparkling headpiece and a cathedral-length veil.
When the time came for the ceremony, guests gathered inside the beautiful house of worship featuring striking stained glass windows. Seven flower girls in white dresses with navy blue bows and flower crowns preceded the bride down the aisle before she met her groom at the altar, which was decorated with ivory blooms on both sides. Zachary wore a navy suit while groomsmen donned black-and-white suits. Following the service, guests tossed vanilla flower petals in celebration as the newlyweds exited the church.
Following the vow exchange, guests were transported to the Dallas Museum of Art for a lively reception featuring entertainment provided by a live band. Tables were decorated with patterned linens, gold candlesticks holding taper candles, and footed centerpieces filled with red roses, ivory hydrangeas, and greenery. Other floral arrangements of similar blooms in shades of pink, apricot, and ivory were displayed in red-and-white ginger jars near the bar. Around the perimeter of the room, velvety blush booths provided additional seating next to small cocktail tables with two chairs on the opposite side. To personalize the space, the couple’s initials were projected on the same wall as a colorful glass sculpture on the dramatic floor-to-ceiling window of the space.
After dinner, guests enjoyed pan-baked cookies served with ice cream on top and plenty of dancing. The TCU mascot even made an appearance at the reception, and guests reveled with glow sticks and feather boas at an after-party, for which the bride changed into a chic V-neck jumpsuit. At the end of the night, guests tossed peach flower petals as the newlyweds hopped into their convertible decorated with a “Just Married” banner.
