Bridal Sign Up

Sarah Polley & Lee Papert

November 5, 2011 | Hall of State at Fair Park 

The couple had a bright send-off at their lovely fall wedding. As for the bride’s sparkler on her finger? It belonged to Lee’s great grandfather, who owned a jewelry store.

Unconventional bouquets by Dr. Delphinium were dotted with pretty succulents. 

Dr. Delphinium designed statement, orchid-flecked arrays for the Hall of State reception, coordinated by As You Wish. 

Frosted Art Bakery & Studio whipped up festive cake pops in amaretto, mint julep and red velvet to pair with the bride’s single carrot cake tier.  

WHY WE LOVE IT Dallas Film Society President and CEO Lee Papert first met his future wife in the lobby of the Meyerson Symphony Center during a Dallas Wind Symphony concert intermission. A few years later, he was asking for her hand in marriage during a spring break getaway to St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands.

THE VENUE The historic Hall of State at Fair Park provided a majestic backdrop for the wedding, and its regal color scheme of blue, green, champagne and silver.

THE DETAILS Harpist Naoko Stromberg strummed melodies for the alfresco ceremony, and Ricki Derek kept the reception fueled with big band and Sinatra-tinged salutes.
