Robin Edwards met Travis Klein at Trees, listening to Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights. She saw him play for the first time at the Granada Theater at a Robert Randolph concert. They had their first real date at an Amos Lee show at the Majestic Theatre, the same musician he took her to see the night he proposed. And so when Travis, a member of the band Timmy and the Naturals, wrote and performed a song for his beautiful bride on their wedding day, nobody was surprised. Even the groom’s cake, by Panini Bakery & Cakes, was actually chocolate cupcakes decorated with guitar picks and stacked on a guitar case. Travis is also a graphic designer, so he designed the invitations. The couple wanted their wedding colors to be bright and happy—hence the striking royal blue worn by the bridal party. Besides the strong musical presence was another, even more important one: Travis’ mother, Jewel Klein, who passed away in 2011 after a seven-year battle with cancer. “Her favorite flower and only tattoo was of a single red rose,” explains Robin of this important touch. “We wanted a way to remember and include her in our special day.  That is why we chose to use one single red rose in each flower bouquet.” Posh Floral Designs made this loving gesture the focal point, surrounding each rose with complementary bright purple, pink and yellow flowers. “Although Jewel was not physically there, when Travis and our families look at pictures with our wedding flowers, we remember her spirit and the sacredness of life, marriage, family and unconditional love,” says the bride. “We feel so blessed we were able to remember her in such a beautiful way.” A sweet memory for a sweet couple.

Ceremony & Reception: Dallas Museum of Art

These Clemson University sweethearts had to endure long-distance post-grad, when Brittany Holl moved home to Dallas and Matt Moore settled into his native Charleston, S.C. But when this Southern charmer (and avid sailor) took his girl out to the Charleston Harbor, pulled out a bottle of Champagne and popped the question at sunset, the distance quickly closed. Living in Charleston now, the bride admits it was hard planning from afar, but she knew she wanted something glam so her guests could dress up, and downtown so the out-of-towners could enjoy the city. When her mother suggested the Dallas Museum of Art, it was set—this black-tie affair would take place under the colorful blown glass of Chihuly’s Hart Window. “Because it was held in an art museum, we wanted fun, unique elements,” says Brittany of the cheery touches like the candy bar (featuring the candy-loving groom’s favorite treat, Sour Patch Kids) and the tongue-in-cheek souvenir—a sketch by the famous original Butt Sketch artist. Not as risqué as it sounds, the artist made sweet charcoal sketches of guests from behind, a unique point of view that highlighted the ladies’ ballgowns. The couple even had a craft beer bar, a nod to Matt, who’s an investor in a local craft beer company in Charleston. The oversize bouquets by Bella Flora of Dallas were inspired by the Chihuly art above, but even Brittany’s neutrals were a glam take on the same-old, with bridesmaids donning stunning gold dresses, and on the classic, a vanilla buttercream-frosted bridal cake highlighted with gold spray paint. Perfectly,
uniquely glamorous.

Ceremony & Reception: Arlington Hall at Lee Park

This former Disney princess may now hold a federal clerkship for a Dallas judge, but she still had her fairy-tale wedding. Amber Chambers wed her sweet beau, Jeff Carson, on the bright-green lawn of Arlington Hall at Lee Park by the very judge for whom she works. The intimate ceremony was just the happy couple, the officiant and the photographer. That same day, they hopped on a plane to Italy, where they had a dreamy Tuscan wedding with their parents and siblings on hand to celebrate. They stayed at a romantic, intimate villa, Fattoria di Cinciano, tucked in an ancient hamlet in the heart of Chianti—with the perfect amount of rustic charm. And if that doesn’t sound absolutely dreamworthy, the globe-trotting couple came home and continued the party with extended family and friends with a fancy brunch reception back at Arlington Hall! After the warm, romantic tones of their Italian “I do’s,” the bride chose to end the festivities with a bright palette for a bright day. “I knew I wanted to have blue in our decor—it’s our favorite color,” says the bride. “I wanted more light colors incorporated as well, and my florist, Branching Out, helped decide on adding pops of yellow and green.” A bright ending for a bright future!
