Michelle and Ryan’s Art Deco wedding encompassed all of the glamour and class of the Jazz Age. The celebration began with an understated ceremony at the Dallas Arboretum followed by an impeccably designed reception at the Nasher Sculpture Center. The black and white motif was subtly complemented with silver and crystal embellishments that elevated the look of the affair without being extravagant. Nessa K Photography captured absolutely irresistible moments between the newlyweds from their first look to their first dance.
Michelle and Ryan
Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, Texas
Our theme evolved but our goal was to showcase who we are together to all the people we love; We love sculptural landscapes, modern architecture, simplicity, the 1920’s, and romantic evenings; so we created an evening of all those things. We chose organic inspired floral elements to complement the venues, lighting to enhance the setting for the evening reception, and Art Deco touches on the paper products. The wedding party attire was 1920’s inspired and matched the elegance of the entire event beautifully.
Our favorite moment was the first look. We were able to relax and joke together after an entire day of preparation and stress. The peace we felt when seeing each other and the excitement we felt for the rest of our lives seemingly culminated in that moment and it was perfect.
The Couple Recommends:
Everyone was amazing. Our planner made our vision a reality and the photographer and the videographer immortalized it. Throughout the process, they listened to us, incorporated our personalities and aesthetics, and gave us memories we will have forever.
