After being introduced by mutual friends, Meredith and Mark began a lovely courtship, which resulted in a memorable proposal in Paris, France. When it came time for the pair to wed, they invited over 500 guests to an exquisite celebration reminiscent of a magnificent winter wonderland in Dallas, Texas. Prior to the traditional church ceremony, bridesmaids prepared for the celebration in robes showcasing a light blue floral print before changing into sophisticated gowns featuring ivory bodices and ebony high-low skirts, which complemented the attire of the groomsmen: black-and-white tuxedos.
Inside the church, a flower girl in an ivory gown and floral halo, a ring bearer in a long-tail tuxedo and top hat, and the large wedding party preceded the bride down the aisle. At last, Meredith emerged in a classic lace gown featuring a scalloped off-the-shoulder neckline with three-quarter-length sleeves. She carried a cascading bouquet of snowy phalaenopsis orchids as she met her groom, who donned an alabaster tuxedo and black bow tie, at the altar. A boys’ choir sang throughout the service and the couple recited their heartfelt vows in the house of worship amongst ivory arrangements of fragrant florals.
Following the vow exchange, friends and family joined together at a nearby golf club to celebrate the love of the newlyweds. After admiring family photos from weddings of past generations in a room showcasing checkered black-and-white flooring, attendees enjoyed a bubble bar of Champagne served in coupe glasses. Dinner was then served inside the exquisite ballroom, which was elaborately adorned with wintry white arrangements of blossoms. A live band entertained revelers well into the evening on a large dance floor emblazoned with the couple’s monogram, which also appeared on paper goods. The night came to a sweet end as loved ones tasted slices of the towering confection displayed on a table with numerous candelabra – providing a romantic ambience for the winter fête.
