Karlene and Taylor wanted a celebration with a timeless feel, and we think their black and white classic wedding day planned by Lyons Events embodies that timeless feel in every aspect! Before this day started, Karlene and her bridesmaids enjoyed a slow morning getting ready at The Adolphus Hotel, and we must say they all looked absolutely beautiful. Held against the stunning natural landscape of the outdoor gardens at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, the cozy and warm feels of this ceremony are radiant and the perfect embodiment of a timeless scene. Lovely minimalist details of sleek white linens, black napkins and metallic gold touches work in perfect harmony with this couple’s custom invitation suite by Lyons Paperie, tying all the classic, timeless and minimalistic details of this day together seamlessly. Between dancing the night away on the dance floor, guests enjoyed incredible eats from Beyond the Box Weddings, whose catering is still talked about today by the couple’s guests! After the conclusion of this celebration, guests headed to the Le Meridien, Dallas, The Stoneleigh, where the festivities continued all weekend long. Scroll to see how this timeless day will never go out of style, all thanks to the amazing photos by Dyan Elizabeth Photography! Cheers to Mr. and Mrs. Stewart!

From the bride on her favorite wedding memory: “The ceremony was my favorite memory of the day because we were making a commitment to one another in front of God and all of our friends and family. Taylor planned the whole ceremony, so for me it was special to see what he had planned and carefully picked for us. Taylor’s vows were so thoughtful and personalized, and I still have his handwritten notes to this day.”
