On the first Sunday in September, Amanda and Bennett invited their loved ones to witness their nuptials at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas. Though many aspects of their wedding followed Jewish traditions, the couple also took part in some modern-day trends including seeing each other prior to the ceremony during a romantic first look, allowing them to take daylight portraits outdoors.
At half past six in the evening, loved ones found their seats in the ballroom for the sophisticated ceremony. The bride was gorgeous in an off-the-shoulder gown as she carried a lush bouquet of blush roses, white phalaenopsis orchids, and eucalyptus down a custom monogrammed aisle runner. Tall risers holding roses and orchids in tones of pink and ivory lined the path to the stunning acrylic chuppah showcasing the same blooms and additional verdure. A crystal chandelier shimmered overhead as they exchanged vows.
Dinner was served at a mix of long rectangular tables and round varieties featuring mirrored tops or silky linens with a floral motif surrounded by chairs with silver backs or translucent modern designs. High and low centerpieces comprised of hydrangeas, roses, orchids, and tulips, as well as floating candles, decorated the space. Each guest’s place setting featured a gold-rimmed or glittering charger topped with a menu and a ribbon denoting their name in calligraphy. The pièce de résistance was the towering wedding cake. The confection was displayed on a Lucite stand beneath the structure originally created for the ceremony, which had been moved next to the dance floor beneath a large chandelier embellished with hundreds of fresh blooms.
