When I saw the images of Dannie & Kenneth’s wedding I just had to feature. I loved how they infused some New Orleans flavor into their Dallas wedding. The nuptials were held at the Orion Ballroom in Dallas and captured by The Amber Studio. And I also really loved Dannie’s hair!! Her locs are so pretty.
Wedding Specifics from the Couple:
“The wedding was themed “Romantic Fall” and the reception was themed “New Orleans/Mardi Gras”. Since I went to school at Xavier and Tulane, I just HAD to have the New Orleans touches. The big thing was how to merge the two without having a conflict of themes. We pulled it off by sticking with deep purples and reds for the wedding ceremony, really playing up the intimate lighting with candles in vases, and having the lights dimmed. This way, the fall theme was not really overwhelming and still tastefully done. For the reception, we decided to go with a classy Mardi Gras feel and stuck with gold and purple so as not to have too many clashing colors. One of the things I felt I had to have was the crystal trees and we went with feathers instead of flowers, since I wanted to try to be eco-friendly, and it just had more of an overall Mardi Gras feel. The great thing about the feathers in the center piece was it was a great play off my wedding dress and added to the cohesiveness of the theme. While we did not have a second-line band, I definitely wanted a live band. The band played during cocktail hour and the first half of the reception! It was awesome, definitely gave that New Orleans feel since they are renowned for their live music. When it came time to party, the DJ was awesome and was able to play second line music so we were able to do our second line seamlessly.”
