Soul Mates in Harmony
May 19, 2016
Jordan and Josh met in their junior year of high school in Richardson, Texas. From that moment on, they were inseparable. Both of them knew they were destined to be soul mates. One night, at a concert in Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, the singer dedicated the last song— “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson— to Jordan. As the song finished, Josh got down on one knee and proposed.
Jordan and Josh were married at The Filter Building on White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas; a place that holds special memories for Jordan. On the big day, she wore a classic, taffeta gown by Stella York. The two-tier cake with pink floral accents was made by a family relative. The blissful pair left their reception amid a whirl of brilliant sparklers, before they sped off in a Rolls Royce to a honeymoon in Bora Bora.

Hire a wedding coordinator. Wedding planners and coordinators these days offer packages to fit every bride. At the very minimum, hire a day-of-coordinator. This was my favorite vendor and she did so much to help the day run smoothly. I didn’t worry about a thing. Pinterest is your best friend. When Josh and I got engaged, the first thing I started to do in the wedding planning process was use Pinterest. I gathered all of my favorite pictures and ideas from other weddings and I started envisioning what I wanted my wedding to look like, to be like, and to feel like. Once I had the ideas, I was able to work towards how to bring those ideas to life. When picking your vendors, do your research. Read every review and rating. I narrowed each type of vendor down to my top three and then met with them to make sure our personalities matched and that they were easy to get along with, knowledgeable, and experienced. People can be a lot different in person and you want to make sure your vendor is someone you feel confident and comfortable working with on your big day.
