Dallas and Landis Simmons

I got a new sister for Christmas! Here she is! The beautiful Landis Simmons!

On December 18, 2011, Dallas and Landis got married! I had been looking forward to this day since Dal proposed on May 22 and it did not disappoint.
Graham and Ashley Scobey were the photographers for the wedding and they were such a delight! I lived in Elam with Ashley so it was neat to get to see her again.

(Also, feel free to comment on the blog so Dallas and Landis can win a wrapped canvas from the Scobeys!)

The morning of the wedding, the bridesmaids joined Landis and her family in their suite at the Loews hotel.  Her aunt and uncle had made the most elaborate spread of food for us to eat as we got ready. It was so thoughtful and delicious!

The wedding day was such a joyful one and the bride was very cool and comfortable. It was like she didn't stop smiling all day long. The joy in her heart was so apparent and it was a beautiful thing to be a part of.

How gorgeous is my sister? But seriously, like it is any surprise! 
They are made for each other. 
The ceremony was at West End Church of Christ and was performed by David Rubio, who did an excellent job. These little cuties below also did such a wonderful job! Jack is Kelsey's nephew and Landis babysits for Eleanna.

I got to carry this lovely lady down the isle on the way out. What a sweetie pie! 
The reception was held at the Loveless Barn  and the food was incredible! The menu included lots of southern deliciousness and drinks came in mason jars with cute gray and white straws.
 A dear friend, Mary Morgan Gentry, was kind of in charge of the reception decor and getting everything set-up with her trusty team of friend/family volunteers. She is one of the most creative and lovely people I know. Here is just a sample of the magical scenes she created at the barn.  If you or anyone you know are planning a wedding and need someone who is brilliant with wedding/reception decor as well as flowers, Mary Morgan is your girl!

This was the table in the foyer right when you walked in the Barn. 

The favors were little s'mores! Landi loves s'mores and we saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be a perfect favor for her guests.

My friend Leigh Ellen Bruce made the cupcakes and the cake topper for the wedding  and they were absolutely delicious! Strawberry cake with butter cream icing.
The weekend of wedding events was so much fun and I loved getting to be around so many friends and family to celebrate with.

This is the Bridesmaid picture we took right before we went up for the ceremony. Such fun ladies! 
I just loved getting to be with Kels again! She is such a delight and I know why Landis loves her so much!

I am so happy for Dal and Landi and I was so thankful to be a part of their day!
