We’re taking you to Dallas, Texas today for the most glamorous of wedding day pictures. Olivia and Jansen celebrated at The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden on October 20th, 2017. “The entire wedding day was the most peaceful, romantic and joy-filled 24 hours we’ve ever had. Every moment from the first look, to the pink champagne toasts in the Gatsby style glasses, to our first dance to Aretha Franklin’s “You Send Me”, it was more than we could have hoped for,” bride Olivia shared. 

The couple originally met through family friends. Olivia was living in Australia at the time, but as soon as she moved back to the States, the romance began. Six months later, while on a trip with her best friend, Jansen surprised Olivia in the gardens of Versailles, France and proposed! The timeline is quick when you just know they’re the one.

Olivia wore our Ruby top with the Dakota skirt and looked absolutely stunning! She purchased the whole look at A&Be Bridal Shop in Dallas. “I wanted something that was unique and funky, but still looked classic and a little old Hollywood. I first saw the sequined top and immediately fell in love with it. I picked the skirt to try on with it because I knew I wanted something more form-fitting. The moment I put it on my Gramma said, “that’s the one!” We both knew!,’ she said of the experience.

It all came together so perfectly. We hope you enjoy these photos as much as we do!
