First things first: that gown. Tiffany was absolutely breathtaking in her Ines Di Santo confection purchased from The Bridal Salon at Neiman Marcus. From the luxe folds of the skirt to the crystal-encrusted bodice accented by off-the-shoulder cap sleeves, everything about Tiffany’s dress evoked the “French-European” flair of the couple’s wedding day. The bridal party sparkled as well in gorgeous, glittering Theia gowns from Neiman Marcus.
And how handsome is the groom in his Ralph Lauren Black Label attire?
The couple exchanged vows at Christ the King Catholic Church, a stunning setting for their intimate ceremony. An all-white floral palette from Garden Gate brought a light, delicate touch to the altar space.
Says Tiffany: “Our family has a long-standing history with Christ the King, and it is our family parish, so that was an easy decision. Most members of my family were married there, and it also has that very traditional and formal feel I wanted too, so it was a natural fit.”
For their reception, the couple selected the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek for the venue’s “old Dallas” feel and rich history. “We went with a sit down dinner, with silvers and golds as our base palettes, then mixed in rich jewel tones—reds, soft pinks, lavenders, deep purples, hot pinks,” shares Tiffany. “I really wanted a black tie, intimate, and regal feel. Especially with the holidays, a winter formal wedding felt perfect, and we mixed in just little splashes of Christmas.”
Personal touches abounded throughout the evening, and included a topper for the groom’s cake modeled after the couple’s beloved dog, a fun candy table filled with Christmas cookies and a selection of Tiffany and Immanuel’s favorite treats, and a few surprise elements—snowflake lights on the ceiling during cocktail hour, a dance floor monogram, and extra touches to the bride’s cake—gifted by the bride’s mother.
And let’s not forget the food! The dinner menu was just as luxe at the rest of the evening, and featured a dual entrée of roasted Filet Mignon and butter poached lobster tail served with broccolini and and pomme puree. A custom wintry holiday-themed cocktail, the “Merry Me,” lent a playful touch the evening, as did the couple’s festive favors and their dog’s very special reception appearance. Dressed in a tux, “he made quite the entrance to ‘Pretty Woman’ at bouquet toss time!” recalls Tiffany.
Congratulations, Tiffany and Immanuel—we’re so grateful to have been a part of your magical December wedding day! Wishing all of our friends a very merry holiday season and a joyful beginning to 2016!
