This was a low-key, yet refined wedding at The Nasher Sculpture Center . Kristin, one of our Dallas wedding planners, loved getting to work with this sweet couple, Devon and Martin. This wedding has also been featured in the The Knot magazine’s Fall/Winter 2019 Print Issue. A bit more about the couple and their wedding below:
Devon and Martin grew up on opposite sides on the world – she in Dallas, while he is from Germany. They met when they were eighteen, and a relationship gradually evolved from there. Eventually, both found themselves in California, and that’s where they were while Kristen was helping plan their wedding in Dallas. We get quite a few out-of-state (and some out of the country) couples and it’s always great to finally meet in person! Read more about their day from Kristin, who was the lead planner:
“When I sat down with Devon and Martin to go over a preliminary timeline for their wedding, I knew this was going to be a fun one! Their chemistry and how they played off of one another is one of those things I love to see in our couples.
Their wedding was at the gorgeous Nasher Sculpture Center. Every time we do a wedding there, I am reminded of how incredible the venue and staff are. In the weeks leading up to Devon and Martin’s outdoor ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, we had received record rainfall in Dallas… needless to say we were a bit concerned the weather would not cooperate to make their vision into a reality.
The day of, the rain kept getting pushed out to later and later in the day so we made the call to set up outside! Their ceremony was set up in front of the Serra and provided a powerful backdrop to start off this power couples’ marriage. Through cocktail hour, guests mingled outside enjoying Wolfgang Puck catering and just after Devon and Martin greeted the guests and mentioned being thankful for there not being rain, it started to sprinkle.
Guests moved to their tables under the trees and stayed dry while they started dinner. As dinner was wrapping up, the forecast showed rain was going to get heavy. We made the decision to move everyone inside for toasts, which ended up being a sweet, intimate way to hear the words of Devon’s dad, Martin’s dad, and Devon’s friend. The rain passed and we move back out for everyone to dance under the stars and boy did they dance! Devon and Martin threw quite the party!”
Below is one of the best reviews we have ever received from ANY bride as well. Devon sure can write! Thank you so much!
“Just. WOW. To break that down: Keestone (specifically Kristin) was the most professional, put together, thoughtful, detail-oriented, forward-thinking wedding planner we could have ever asked for.
My (now) husband and I were looking for a month-of coordinator and spoke to several wedding planners that all had great reviews. Everyone we spoke to was pleasant and loved making the wedding day as special as possible, but Keestone was about more than a beautiful wedding. Keestone was about raw logistics, planning, and foresight to a degree we appreciated more and more leading up to and ESPECIALLY on the wedding day.
Kristin was the absolute perfect coordinator not because she made sure our centerpiece set up was on point (it was, she could do that in her sleep), but because she turned every possible thing that went wrong (because no matter what you do, something will go wrong) into an opportunity to make our wedding better.
Her and her team were so put together that our outdoor wedding, which overlapped with intermittent rain, was actually IMPROVED by their on-the-spot decision to move our toasts and cake indoors until the rain passed. Kristin is apparently also a meteorologist because bringing everyone indoors was timed PERFECTLY, with everyone out on a dry dance floor in the garden right after speeches ended.
We chose Keestone because they are more than event planners; they are psychics who will foresee every possible mistake and make sure the guests, the bride, and the groom think everything went off without a hitch. And considering a relative monsoon hit 24 hours after our wedding weekend, they may also have some pact with the weather gods.
Just saying. Keestone is just the best. Hands down. THANK YOU KRISTIN!!!”
