Q&A with Skylar from Nightowl Coffee

Can my partner and I create signature drinks for our wedding?

“Selecting signature drinks is not only an option for our couples—it’s a MUST! Upon booking, our coupes will select their menu from a list of our favorite housemade syrups. Some of my favorite include cinnamon pecan, honey lavender, and smoked caramel. If there’s a flavor not on our list, don’t worry one bit—we’ll create it for you!”


What are some of your most popular upgrades or add-ons?

“While our most popular wedding day add-on is the custom suite (custom cups and custom bar), our marquee canopy, custom awning, and espresso martini package are a few other fan favorites. OMG, I almost forgot—have you seen our latte logo printer? There is nothing cuter than topping every single latte off with pictures of the bride and groom, wedding party, or the bride’s new last name.”


Can I see my custom coffee bar ahead of time?

“Upon inquiring all of our couples will receive 3D renderings of their custom bar and cups within 24 hours of the request. We know how excited you are to plan your big day and keeping you waiting just isn’t an option for a team that is absolutely in love with celebrating life’s biggest moments.”

Sweet Dallas Engagement Photos to Stand the Test of Time

Friday, November 4th, 2022

Flawless outfits, a rockstar photographer, and a stunning couple created the perfect conditions for these sweet Dallas engagement photos, and we can’t get enough of them. Katie and Drew’s outdoor Arlington Hall photoshoot by Kimberly Harrell Photography was a picture of romantic elegance. We have no doubt these photos will stand the test of time! Katie looked absolutely radiant with hair and makeup by Brite Beauty, and we adore her mid-photoshoot outfit change from a timeless champagne cocktail dress to a fun, polka-dotted romper, which perfectly complemented the adorable fountain photos at the end!

Katie and Drew met at the University of Tulsa in 2016 and Drew popped the question under a charming gazebo the day after Thanksgiving last year. The couple will say “I do” in May of 2023 with a light blue and champagne color scheme, white florals, and fresh greenery to tie their “backyard party feel” together. Our bride-to-be is particularly excited about the ice cream and coffee truck they’ve reserved for their reception!
