Vows that Wow — Mackenzie & Jeff


Week after week, our team receives and showcases stunning weddings from across North Texas, all courtesy of the immensely talented wedding vendors and lovely couples who submit to us. Each month, our editorial team selects one spectacular wedding to highlight, one that stands above the rest for its uniqueness and beauty. 

This month, we’re featuring a romantic garden wedding with blue hues, peach touches and classic florals. Mackenzie and Jeff’s evening wedding was nothing short of dreamy!


How the Couple Met

After graduating college, Mackenzie moved back to Dallas, where she quickly met Jeff through Hinge. The two connected over their mutual friends, going to college in Oklahoma, a love of travel and shared beliefs. 

Although the couple hit it off with ease, Jeff continued to woo Mackenzie. “Jeff would consistently plan and surprise me with romantic dates around DFW,” writest the bride. “He had a list of 101 date ideas he had saved on his phone and over our 2 years of dating we went on all of them. I was very impressed!”

A favorite date for the two lovebirds was a picnic at White Rock Lake. As they ate, the two watched the sunset and enjoyed a fireworks show after dark. From that point on, the lake became a special place for the couple and ultimately influenced their decision to wed at the Dallas Arboretum.

Before their dream wedding came to life, Jeff proposed to Mackenzie during sunrise on the Brooklyn Bridge. Nearly a year later, the two tied the knot surrounded by loved ones and lush botanicals.


The Wedding Day

The day began with the bride and her maids getting their hair and makeup done by Etoilly Artistry. Mackenzie went with a classic updo and soft glam to complete her bridal look. After getting ready with her best gals, she slipped into her gown from Stanley Korshak Bridal Salon.

Mackenzie and Jeff said “I do” at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. Their ceremony took place at the Lay Family Garden, followed by dinner and dancing at the Alex Camp House. “The elegant yet simple florals, beautiful garden table setups, small reception tent, romantic string lights, live saxophone and white dance floor all looked so beautiful for our reception,” writes the bride.

With a caffeine boost provided by Nightowl Coffee entertainment by Marquise Pro, guests had plenty of reason to give it their all on the dance floor!


Mackenzie & Jeff’s Favorite Detail

“Our guests were in awe as they watched the beautiful sunset over White Rock Lake during our reception. This was the sunset we had loved from one of our very first dates, and we got to watch that same sunset over the lake as husband and wife. It was a dream.”
