Black Tie Affair at Italian Estate- Olana Wedding

Avery and Brandon decided to get married in the incredibly lavish, Olana wedding venue just outside of Dallas, TX!

In a pre-COVID world, it was a thrill to celebrate with them on such a grand scale!

It was full of heart as much as it was full of beauty.

I’d go back again and again!

From the bride: Brandon and I met at a coffee shop in DFW!

He works there and I was a regular.

Eventually, we started dating and I ended up working there about three years later he proposed at that same coffee shop! It was really intimate and sweet!

My wedding was black-tie-inspired.

I wanted everyone to feel like they were going to the Emmys or an award show.

The color schemes were neutrals, gold, and green.

We didn’t have a lot of decour because Olana wedding venue is very extravagant.

We had a lot of candles, votives, chargers, floral, and some pictures & signs.

A lot of it was DIY…our centerpieces were small cakes with cake stands that we brought in.

The pampas grass we picked ourselves.

The flowers were very simplistic- white, green, and sage.

My wedding day look was pretty simple… I didn’t want it to be too overdone.

My dress was sparkly and a low back cut.

My husband & the groomsmen were all in black-tie attire!

The most special moment was probably the ceremony.

Actually getting to make a commitment with someone and in front of so many people was such a wonderful/memorable experience.

And then, of course, the dance party.

My favorite part was just getting to dance with family and friends and celebrate finally being married to my best friend.
