A Classic, Romantic Wedding at Rosine Hall at the Dallas Arboretum in Dallas, Texas

Melissa Gonzales (26 and a staff accountant) and Matt Garvey (30 and a senior accountant) met the old-fashioned way—through common friends—in Dallas, Texas, and they wanted their classic wedding to follow suit. White Rock Lake is close to Melissa’s heart, so a wedding nearby with lots of flowers was a must—emphasis on plenty of peonies. Whitney Bailey with Chic Fleur Weddings and Events brought their wedding vision to life, with a timeless, romantic vibe throughout the day. Their ceremony unfolded at Perkins Chapel on the campus of Southern Methodist University, while classic songs by Beethoven, Bach, Pachelbel’s timeless “Canon in D” performed by an organist echoed throughout the room. Choosing Rosine Hall at the Dallas Arboretum for their reception was a no-brainer: The Arboretum was already surrounded by flowers and lush greenery, but when the Southern Table filled the space with soft, pink peonies and a stunning hanging wreath of roses, hydrangeas and peonies above the dance floor, the space was nothing short of breathtaking. One of the best parts (aside from the dance party led by DJ Jake), provided by Birds of a Feather Events, was a photo booth where guests could snap memories and take them home.
