Gabby & Tyler’s wedding at The Olana in Dallas was one of those truly incredible events that all other events wish they could be… Every detail of the day was absolutely extraordinary. From the French Baroque architecture of the mansion, to the bride’s stunning Berta gown, to her ivory color palette, to the four string quartet and the six-tier wedding cake… Not to mention, it was a perfectly lovely Spring day in Texas, and Gabby and Tyler were having the time of their lives. Who could ask for anything more?
When I arrived at the venue, Gabby was simply overflowing with joy and anticipation of marrying her best friend. Downstairs, Tyler and his guys sipped beer in their bowling-alley-groom’s-suite. Meanwhile, Gabby slipped into her gorgeous Berta gown (an incredibly special gift from her mother) and her Christian Louboutin shoes in the lady’s two-story Chanel closet. Then she headed down the grand staircase at the back of the mansion and tapped her soon-to-be-husband on the shoulder…
Tyler’s reaction to seeing his bride was the kind of reaction every girl dreams of when they’re watching Cinderella at age 5. And definitely the kind of reaction Gabby deserved. She looked too incredible to put into words…. First Looks are always my favorite moment of a wedding day, but this one took the cake. And the best part? There were THREE! Gabby did a first look with Tyler, her bridesmaids, and her sweet momma (the “light of her life”, as Gabby put it)!
I simply can’t get over how stunning, perfect, and inspirational Gabby & Tyler’s wedding was. Of course, none of it could have happened without the ultimate vendor dream team – expert planning from Jamie Lemke with Tami Winn Events, gorgeous floral design from Joie Pham with Luxe Petals, incredible hair and makeup from Jenny Torry, and so many more wonderful vendors. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work amongst the best in the industry!
Gabby and Tyler, I’m so grateful to you both for giving me the honor of capturing your incredible wedding day. It was truly one of the most beautiful events I’ve ever seen. I hope these photos bring you joy for decades to come, and that you’re able to relive this special day over and over again when you look at them. Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Superior! Love you guys!!
