On December 4, 2010, high school sweethearts Ellen Melson and Clayton Kershaw became husband and wife here in Dallas, Texas. The couple met at Highland Park High School and continued to date as Ellen pursued her degree at Texas A&M and Clayton was recruited to play professional baseball for the LA Dodgers. What a FUN, full of energy, and perfect wedding this was…. and such a pleasure to coordinate! The ceremony was held at Highland Park Presbyterian Church and the reception at Royal Oaks Country Club.

We start with Ellen’s beautiful bridal portraits…. what an absolutely stunning bride, both inside and out!

The gorgeous ceremony…. Ellen and Clayton put so many wonderful elements into their ceremony. Their music was fantastic and included the Festival Brass, as well as, the HPPC Children’s choir…
Following the ceremony, guests were invited to Royal Oaks Country Club for a night of great food and great dancing!! The club looked stunning with the floral from Garden Gate!
As you can see below… the darling couple did not do your traditional first dance, but rather Ellen had choreographed a show-stopping first dance for the guests… they were SO good and everyone was loving it!
What a great party… the Project Band kept the dance floor full all night long….
While the majority of the party took place inside the club, guests were also invited out to “Dodgertown” on the balcony…. the patio had the Big 12 Championship game on, some fun variety of foods and drinks…. and of course it was a hit with both the gentlemen and the ladies!

Ellen and Clayton enjoyed a honeymoon in Playa Mujeres, Mexico. Congratulations to this amazing couple! It was such an honor for DFW Events to be a part of the details with you—we wish you both the best and are excited to see the great things you will accomplish together as husband and wife!
