Industrial design at The Rooftop Event Spot

Stephen had finally worked up the courage to ask Heidi on a date and wasn’t going to let a pesky conference call get in his way. So instead of waiting for another time, he slid his business card across the desk with a note on the back asking her out for a drink. Since it worked so well the first time, Stephen decided to propose in the same fashion. He handed Heidi another business card and got down on one knee. “If you want to get married sometime, text me or call me.”

Fast forward to their beautiful wedding at the Rooftop Event Spot in Downtown Plano.

Hanging Edison bulbs and a handmade pallet wall set the industrial tone for their ceremony site where Heidi donned a beaded gown and matching headpiece. Pink peonies and aqua bridesmaids lent pops of color to the springtime celebration. Their glamorous gold-accented wedding cake sat atop a tower of different flavored cupcakes including some of the couple’s favorites like carrot cake and strawberry. Concrete candleholders and assorted terrariums completed the look while guests danced the night away under the twinkling Texas stars.

Engaged | Heidi + Stephen


Heidi was a leasing agent at the apartment complex Stephen used to live at. Stephen, being the friendly man he is, would often visit with the office staff, usually bringing them delicious cookies to share since he used to work for Kraft. A month after Heidi began her job at the complex, it was clear to everyone who Stephen was really coming in to see. Heidi had a feeling that he liked her, but it was still technically unknown.

It was on Heidi’s birthday when Stephen called asking for her, but alas, she wasn’t there. Heidi’s coworker told her who had called and continued to gush about how much he seemed to liked her! He was making her speechless and Heidi told her mother about it. Her mother suggested that if anyone has the ability to do that to you, then you should definitely go out with them.

Finally, Stephen walked into her office while she was on a conference call, too busy to speak to him, so he placed a card on her desk. The card simply asked for her to go on a coffee date with him. After a week, they did and they have been inseparable since.

After all these years, Heidi still has that hand-written card that started it all.
