Certainly by now, you’ve seen our blog post about Adria & Shawn’s beautiful wedding in the Dominican Republic, right? Well, if you haven’t, back up a click and follow that link to all the tropical paradise wonderfulness, then you can come back here… we’ll wait. 🙂
Ah, now that we’re all on the same page, let’s talk about this awesome couple’s local reception!
We met up with Adria & Shawn on Saturday afternoon at the NYLO hotel property in downtown Dallas, where they were finishing up getting ready with Adria’s daughter Emily. It was such a relaxed feeling when we walked into the suite… just a family comfortably hanging out together, in matching shoes, getting ready to party the night away. 🙂
It’s hard to tie your own converse sneakers in a restricting wedding dress!
… showing off their new ink! Two halves of the same star.
Emily was just SO happy all day. A super fun kid to have around. 🙂
Adria & Shawn joined their guests at Edison’s just a few blocks from the hotel for food & dancing. The menu was a “taste of Texas”, and it was absolutely scrumptious!
Don’t adjust your screens… that IS a RedBull groom’s cake. 😉
There were many sweet & heartfelt toasts from the guests, and the bride & groom themselves. Everyone in the room was clearly just so excited for these three to officially start their lives together.
Lori, of Melodies & Memories, provided awesome entertainment for the evening… including a rousing arrangement of Gangham Style with a few of the younger members of the crowd. 🙂
A big group hug to end the evening…
Congratulations, you guys. We feel like over the last 6 months, planning this adventure with you, we’ve made dear friends. We hope the road between here & Tulsa won’t keep us apart, and we’ll get to see you again soooooon!
