Bridal Sign Up

Sydney Hoffman & Carson Pope

October 22, 2016 | Ceremony & Reception: The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas

After an evening of celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs. Pope through flowing cocktails and endless congratulations, the post-ceremony celebration came to a close with a delicious spread of burgers and fries. Glow sticks were handed out as a fun favor for guests dancing the night away to the lively tunes from DJ Kelly Taylor and Jordan Kahn.


Sydney’s Saint Laurent shoes were a glamorous part of her wedding day ensemble.

A classic five-tier wedding cake for her and an impressive frosting-covered replica of Carson’s adorable goldendoodle for him—both equally as delicious; a look says it all! Sydney and Carson shared a romantic moment on their big day.

 Guest table settings at the reception consisted of simplistic yet elegant glassware and white flower arrangements that continued the all-white theme.

THE COUPLE Sydney Hoffman and Carson Pope have been together so long, they can’t even remember when they met. They began “dating” when they were only 12 years old and have been together ever since. Carson proposed in their apartment, his goldendoodle at his side. “It is amazing when you have been together so long how different the tone is from all of your family and guests,” says Sydney of the wedding festivities and proposal. “It seemed like every single person knew everyone else.”

THE DETAILS The couple decided to adorn The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas in all white for their wedding day—Sydney noted that her favorite part of the decorations was the breathtaking flower chandelier. Though the wedding and reception were held in the same space, the ballroom was transformed as guests enjoyed happy hour.

WHAT WE LEARNED “In life, in relationships, in planning the wedding, things will inevitably go wrong,” says Sydney. “We think it is so important to realize this, communicate well and just go with it.”

THE HONEYMOON After the wedding, the couple jetted off to their own private villa at Sandals Grande St. Lucian. They were greeted by a butler every morning and sipped frozen drinks.
