Bridal Sign Up

Julie Mackay & Jeffrey Petry

She wore a Watters gown from Mia Bridal Couture. He wore a Jos. A. Bank suit. They both rocked Black Jack cowboy boots.

The Michigan State University grads found their white gold rings at Fredrick Jewelers in Bloomfield Hills. Vahe Akaraz designed hers.

Designed by Amber Fowler at Pressing Events, the wedding invitation neatly tucked all of the dinner and dancing particulars into a pocketed paper suite.

The couple’s matching “J” monograms, created by Flora Bella Designs, greeted guests as they entered the ceremony at the Briscoe Chapel. Events in Bloom styled the reception space.

Why We Love It
Because it was an all-out “elegant Texas chic” theme for the beautiful Houston native and the Michigan-born pro hockey player (for the Edmonton Oilers) who met in their very first class at Michigan State University. 

The Venue
Neutral colors, lots of candles and a custom monogram logo by Bright Star Productions set the romantic scene at bucolic Briscoe Manor, where guests dined on southern cuisine by Behind the Bash.

The Details
Marble Slab Creamery set up shop in the bar area while Sha’on and the Success Band got the crowd on its feet.
