Blush Wedding At The Joule In Downtown Dallas, TX

This wedding gives us ALL the feels! We are so incredibly excited to share this PICTURE-PERFECT wedding day at The Joule with you all today.

You probably remember Jessica & Sean from their unforgettable brunch proposal last spring! We fell in love with them instantly! From the moment we met Sean, helping plan his surprise proposal, through sitting out on the patio patiently waiting for you both to arrive for your brunch date, to ordering raspberries (as our photo prop of course!) and being able to witness one of the most magical moments in your life. Your engagement. We knew you both were meant to be for one another! And we could not wait for your wedding day!!!

It is easy to say, that this wedding has quickly become one of our new favorites!

As we were taking the elevator up, the shiny doors opened, we could hear giggles. A smell of sweet perfume in the hallway. “Knock. Knock.” We gently pushed the door open. Falling into Jessica’s arms. Pure joy. And then a sweet voice from the room next door. Her mom. Kim. So proud. With the most precious smile. Full of excitement. For her beloved daughter. Getting married today. But there was more.

Walking towards the light, where all the blush and pastel colored bridesmaids dresses were beautifully decorating the window, the most precious gown hanging in the center. We could not believe our eyes.

“This is my wedding dress!”. GOOSEBUMPS! Jessica is coming from a legacy of love, and on her wedding day, she wore her moms wedding dress. Re-designed, carefully tailored, every lacy detail, curated with love, by her mom herself. We had to fight back our tears, and the day had just started!

Jessica and Sean were both so joyful and excited about every aspect of their day! We could see their dream coming true in all the little details, from the design and decor, to all their family and friends making this wedding day so unforgettable! And did we mention Steve??? He brought so much passion, it was so much fun working with him! Some of our favorite moment of the day was being able to bear witness to the love between all the generations in this wedding, more than enough to last a lifetime for the two of us!

We loved every second of your wedding day, Jessica and Sean!!! Thank you for making us feel like we are a part of your family and friends. We hope you love all your wedding photos as much as we do. Which is A LOT!!! We are sending hugs to Bora Bora and cannot wait to catch up with you during brunch, with a bottle or two of Domaine and some raspberries! 😉

We love you guys!
