In the heart of Dallas, Texas, love blossomed as Kelsey and Richard said “I do” in a late August wedding. With the stunning Highland Park United Methodist Church as their backdrop and the DCC hosting their reception, the Averitt’s wedding day was nothing short of magical.
The church, with its grand architecture and timeless beauty, was the perfect setting for their vows. Kelsey and Richard exchanged heartfelt promises, surrounded by family and friends who had gathered to witness their marriage.
After being pronounced husband and wife, the Averitts joyfully recessed down the aisle. This was the highlight of the ceremony for Kelsey who shared with me, “Immediately after we walked down the aisle and the doors opened, the church bells rang out, and there were a few minutes where Richard and I were alone where we could really take it all in. It was awesome!”
After the ceremony, the newlyweds, along with their jubilant guests, made their way to the DCC for a reception that was the epitome of elegance. The venue, with its lush greenery and sweeping views, provided the perfect atmosphere for the celebration. The reception hall was adorned with floral arrangements that set the scene for an unforgettable evening.
One of the most noteworthy elements of the reception was the incredible cake made by the bride herself. Kelsey created a masterpiece that left everyone in awe. The cake featured multiple tiers, each adorned with delicate sugar flowers that circled around them like a floral dream. It was a true work of art that not only looked divine but tasted just as heavenly.
Kelsey and Richard incorporated their love for their two golden retrievers into their cocktail napkins created by Laura, one of Kelsey’s bridesmaids. “The embroidery was all done by one of my one of my bridesmaids, Laura from Printed Desires by LV, and she made everything so personal from the embroidered boxwood sash to the linen napkins with our monogram on it.”
The evening continued with a lively dance party that kept everyone on their feet. The newlyweds shared their first dance as husband and wife and mingled with their guests that came to celebrate their love. “It was so good to spend time talking to and dancing with everyone, and we enjoyed watching our friends and family smile and have a good time.” Kelsey shared.
As the night came to a close, Kelsey and Richard bid farewell to their guests with a rose-petal send-off. The made their way through the tunnel of guests to their awaiting getaway car, Richard’s classic two door Tahoe.
