We're excited to share another fabulous wedding coordinated by DFW Events in Dallas. We've been working with them for almost a decade; so, when they introduced us to Lexi and Ben, we knew we would love working for these clients! From their mountaintop proposal story to their passion for their (super cute) puppies, Lexi + Ben's wedding was everything a Spring wedding should be: joyous, relaxed, and filled with laughter. Lexi and Ben are originally from different cities, and through a series of events, separate hurricanes brought each of them to live in Austin, TX. On the wedding day, rain clouds gathered overhead late in the evening, but no one was alarmed.... the outpouring of the heavens was like a rainfall of joy celebrating the love of this couple.
When we arrived at the Four Seasons in Las Colinas, it was obvious that everyone in the bridal party felt pretty relaxed--even with all the buzz about the Music awards being held in Dallas. Jones ran into Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) while he was out filming landscape shots. He's like a magnet for celebrity run-ins!
Keeping the entire wedding day in one location allowed for the day to unfold in a very relaxed way--as they got ready, the girls could look out their windows to the lawn where the ceremony would happen. The bridal party only had to walk a few hundred feet to the ceremony site that looked out over a beautiful pond on the Four Seasons golf course. Even better, the bride's parents were able to arrange for a seriously cool surprise for the bride and groom: a second line brass band met Lexi + Ben as they exited the ceremony, and they danced their way straight up to the reception pavilion. What fun!
If you want to see more second line goodness, watch this second line tradition from a wedding in New Orleans. We just love filming those fun traditions!
Lexi and Ben,
We are so honored to have created your wedding film for you--we keep talking about how pleasant your family is, and how refreshing it is to be around so many smiling people. Ben, the story of Nardos Imam creating an entirely new dress for your mother two days before the wedding (amazing!!!) is such a great example of how your community knows how to turn lemons into even better lemonade and enjoy every second of life. We hope you always enjoy even the darkest rainstorm, keep riding that fast train, and zing-zing-boom-boom-bam forever!
