LaRona and Mandy celebrated a beautiful LGBTQ wedding at the Room on Main in Dallas, Texas. Their goal was to have a beautifully decorated space, but not too elegant that would deter being afraid to get on the dance floor.

Finding their Dallas Wedding Planner

Our couple first contacted us July 2019. We remember it like it was yesterday. We met at the CBD Provisions for a light lunch and cocktails. It really felt as if we had been friends for years. Honestly those are the best connections we can have with our clients. It simply works.

After getting to know LaRona and Mandy, it was obvious as to why these two were in love. Even with the difference of opinion as to how the wedding would look and feel, one thing was for sure….they wanted a good time. The other thing is they wanted us. We celebrated over whiskey and vodka cocktails, respectfully. The initial game plan was set and we began to plan a wedding that was perfectly curated for them.

The Room on Main Dallas Wedding Venue

Following our initial meeting, Mandy and LaRona already had a short list of Dallas wedding venues they wanted to visit. We scheduled the appointments for several, but only went to one. When our clients walked into the Room on Main, they fell in love. There was no hey what about seeing other venues. This was it and the contract was signed right there.

The Room on Main is certainly a beautiful venue with a ceiling pulling your eyes towards it’s heights and windows to daydream out of.

The building itself was built by the Dallas Free Masons in 1913. Dallas Lodge 760 was on the 6th floor until the building was leased to Western Union in 1919.

Jack Ruby would later in 1963, make a wire transfer from the Western Union office on the first floor and proceed outside and where he noticed commotion and continued down the Courthouse’s garage ramp where he shot Lee Harvey Oswald. The Room on Main still has the original Hardwood Floors as well as the original Chandeliers.

Dallas Wedding Day Experience

Through the design planning phase, the couple wanted a relaxed feel that allowed guests to easily enjoy dinner. They also wanted to ensure their personalities shined through which meant having a good time on the dance floor. It also meant a Thor secondary wedding cake. We tied both sides together and created a contemporary environment.

For the wedding ceremony, crystal candelabras hugged the perimeter of the ceremony space. Arrangements filled with white roses flowed down the aisle leading two to large installations that served as the backdrop for our  LGBTQ wedding.

The reception continued the design elements introducing blue into the color platte. Tables were adorned with cadet blue linen. The same blue was used on their custom monogram splashed onto the dance floor. Providing an ease to the deign, were contemporary Dakota sofas along the boarder of the dance floor. Since we were in Texas, we tied in wooden pedestal table with a bronze finish, navy blue Windsor chairs, and a accent blue Ariel rug for a vintage country vibe.

The design was the perfect way to start dinner and end well into the night dancing!
