Lindsey & Ryan said “I do” on the twelfth of March at Highland Park Presbyterian Church. Their wedding incorporated all things traditional, elegant and blue! The day began by spending some time with their bridal party. After makeup and a pj party with her bridesmaids, Lindsey stepped into her gown with the help of her mom. Lindsey wore a trumpet style dress with a strapless sweetheart neckline. Floral decals were woven into the design of the upper half of her gown and sporadically trailed the train of her veil. She wore Bella Belle satin kitten heels embellished with beads in the shape of florals and vines.
Before heading to the church, Lindsey did a first-look with her bridesmaids and precious flower girls! The group headed to Highland Park Presbyterian Church, where Ryan and Lindsey were soon-to-be married, for the bride and groom to share a private first-look. Ryan had the sweetest smile on his face when he first saw his bride. After soaking in the moment together, they joined their families and prepared to become Mr. and Mrs. Barry. Guests made their way to pughs and the bridal party waited at the altar for Lindsey’s entrance. Lindsey and Ryan were pronounced husband and wife, shared a kiss, and then exited hand-in-hand with elated grins on their faces.
After portraits at the church, it was time to celebrate the newlyweds at the Dallas Country Club! Entering the reception space, guests were greeted by large cherry blossom trees, walls of foliage, and an archway of green and white florals. On the entry table were Lindsey and Ryan’s engagement photos, accompanied by photos of the bride and groom’s parents on their wedding days. What a special way to incorporate family! Inside the ballroom was a sleek white dance floor and a stage covered in geometric mirrors. The reception hall was classy, traditional and featured crisp whites, soft light blues and greens to compliment.
For Lindsey, Panini Bakery created a five tier stacked ivory cake with dotted piping between each layer. The cake incorporated the same floral decals from Lindsey’s dress into the design of the middle tiers and fresh flowers tucked on the sides. Ryan’s cake paid tribute to Notre Dame including the Fighting Irish logo, a four leaf clover and the Chicago skyline.
The party was in full force when the light up cowboy hats came out and the band moved from the stage to the floor. And when I say floor, I mean breakdancing with instruments, reallyyyy on the floor. The trumpet even served as a limbo at one point, with guests shimmying underneath the instrument. The evening of celebration concluded with Ryan and Lindsey sharing one last dance by themselves. They joined the rest of their guests at the exit, where petals were thrown as they headed towards their getaway car. After a few more hugs from their family, Ryan and Lindsey were on their way out in style in a 1957 Rolls Royce.
Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Barry!
