Vibrant and Vintage at The Waterstone in Celina


Two right swipes was just the beginning of this modern day romance. After a few weeks of texting, this sweet couple had their first date at the Comedy Club in Addison, Texas and they both knew it was meant to be.

John being a lighting designer for Onstage Systems, went all out for the proposal. Under the disguise as a celebration for Staci obtaining her masters degree, John decked out Staci’s house with a lighting display synchronized to music. Staci had already seen John’s displays before but this time the lights were dancing along to “Marry You” but Bruno Mars. Staci of course said yes and the two started to plan a wedding for the ages.

Knowing they wanted a outdoor ceremony with a rustic glam reception, the pair chose the Venue at Waterstone for their big day. October 10 already held a special place in Staci’s heart as it was her parents’ anniversary. As soon as mom and dad granted them permission on sharing the date, things started to fall into place.

After deciding on a palette of mint, blush and gold the next step was the dress. Every fabric, beading technique, and lace pattern was hand-picked by Staci in her custom dress by Nha Khanh. At the end, this blush dress was everything the bride had ever dreamt of.

All eyes were on the bride as she walked through a pair of vintage doors and down the petal strewn aisle to her groom. Guests seated on old church pews watched as the two said their vows under an antique crystal chandelier.

After a tear-jerking ceremony, the party moved to the barn. Gold and glitz was in every corner and deep pinks, whites, and blush roses were overflowing. Just a glance at the five tiered cake or the head table made people go weak in the knees. If they weren’t lined up for the Photo Wagon, the band Signed Sealed Delivered had family and friends out of their seats and dancing the night away. When the reception came to an end, John and Staci were sent off in style. Running under a tunnel of sparklers, the newlyweds hopped in a vintage mint Thunderbird and rode off into their happily ever after.
