An Outdoor Fall Wedding at Dallas/Fort Worth Marriott Hotel & Golf Club at Champions Circle in Texas

Without a particular theme in mind, Onyebuchi (Onye) Amaechi, (31 and a clinical pharmacist) and Emeka Ononogbu’s, (31 and a chemical engineer) romantic nuptials evolved organically around their blue and gold colors and glam style. “I wanted all 10 bridesmaids to look elegant and classy no matter their physique,” Onye says. She and her bridesmaids worked with a personal stylist to come up with a custom gold brocade gown they all felt comfortable and beautiful in. “I didn’t want to take it off!” Onye recalls of finding her ivory mermaid-style wedding dress. Thistle added a pop of blue to Onye’s ivory rose bouquet, and the couple’s monogram adorned their five-tier white and gold cake. Onye and Emeka couldn’t decide on one song for their first dance, so they chose two: “You & I” by Avant and Korede Bello’s “One & Only” (a nod to their Nigerian heritages) to kick off the dance party. “Our planner had to request an extension because guests wouldn’t leave the floor,” Onye says. “We had a blast!”
