Carly & Javier | The Mason Dallas

Having wedding plans derailed by a pandemic was the last thing on Carly’s mind as she dreamed of her large, ballroom wedding overlooking the Dallas skyline. The plan was to bring all their family together from New York, to Ohio, all the way to El Salvador. Very few were local, so this wedding was BIG deal to the family as getting together was proven to be quite difficult. With a year of planning underway and a date set for March of 2020, the world was changed in the blink of an eye. The bride’s venue was cancelled and travel bans affected almost her entire guest list. Even though there was no Plan C (Covid) at the time, our team quickly went to work. We, first, determined how many people could actually attend so that we could find an appropriate new venue. Our new number was 30. Thirty of the bride and groom’s closest local friends and family. We reserved The Mason, a recently renovated and historic venue in Dallas. The venue itself was inspiring for the day, and lended so much in the way of detail. Setting our new date in August, we then were able to shift our entire team over and “new plan” was in full effect. It was a creative plan to say the least. 🙂 The bride and groom spent the entire day at the old mansion, getting ready, enjoying time with their small group. The idea was to have a really relaxed day.


Under a chuppah, made by family friends, they were united and took a moment to sign their ketubah with a few witnesses. After their intimate ceremony, guests sipped on champagne and looked on as the couple had their special dances. A moment NOT to be missed. Following they cut their cake and mingled with guests. The bride and groom didn’t want to fuss with the details of holding a dinner reception. Another reminder of their original wedding plans that had been halted. Instead, we worked with the catering vendor to take the deposit that has been paid and use it towards an in home dinner experience. So when our festivities at the Mason were completed, the small group headed to the private home of the bride & groom for a lovely lowkey night. In times such as these, we are reminded of the beauty in the simple gestures and small gatherings. ❤️
