The Planning Process:

I met with Janaye, Michael, and Janaye’s mother, Judy in our office one year before their wedding. I knew from that first meeting that I wanted to serve this couple as their planner. Janaye described a wedding that reflected her West Texas roots and meets with Michael’s East Texas upbringing. They also described how much they valued music in their relationship, and having a killer party was essential!


The Wedding Day:

Janaye spent the morning at the OMNI Dallas getting ready with her bridesmaids and family. JM Glamour did a fantastic job as her beauty support team. Michael and the groomsmen opted to get ready at the NYLO Southside (It was a perfect location because the rehearsal dinner was at Gilley’s and the after party was on the NYLO rooftop). Prime Limo picked up each group for the first look and bridal party photos at the Dallas Arboretum.




The First Look:

There are few areas of Dallas as beautiful as the Arboretum. Janaye and Michael opted to have their first look in the Women’s Garden. They followed these with their wedding party photos in the Arboretum gardens, before getting back on the buses to travel to the Brake and Clutch Warehouse for the ceremony.



The Ceremony:

For the ceremony, Janaye and Michael selected the officiant and pre-ceremony guidance from Jim Mustain with Loving Celebrations. Jim helped Janaye and Michael craft a ceremony that honored their beliefs and their specific union. The music was provided by Guitarombres, by Damon Allen Gay Music. The ceremony music was a special nod to this couple’s deep love for classic country music, with Janaye walking down the aisle to “I Cross My Heart” by George Strait. Family members and close friends also spoke during the ceremony, offering “words of advice” to the new couple.




The Flowers:

Janaye was very involved in the design process with Mayfield Events, which WE LOVED! It is so nice when a client can share with us what they love and what they do not. For the floral and design element of Janaye’s day, it was very important to incorporate a touch of the west Texas desert elements with the East Texas lush greenery. I ABSOLUTELY loved how the who design plan came together!




The Reception:

Janaye and Michael love to party and they love MUSIC! That is why in10city band was their number one choice for guest entertainment! WHAT A PARTY! Seriously, it was amazing!


Janaye’s Review of Mayfield Events:

Laura and the entire team at Mayfield Events were absolutely perfect for us and our wedding! We could not of asked for a better team to support us during the planning process and on our wedding day!

I knew from the beginning that we needed a planner…so I lined up 6 meetings with different planners (that I found through Wedding Wire). My mom, husband and I went to all 6 meetings in the span of a few days. We walked out of the meeting with Laura and all agreed immediately that she was the one! From the beginning she was easy to work with, we instantly trusted her and we’re excited to make our visions come to light with her.

I could not be more grateful for how the entire team at Mayfield Events supported my desires for our wedding. There were several things that I was very particular on and needed help making my vision come to light and the team always accommodated me and went the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable with everything. The planning process was great with Laura for the overall wedding and Jen was absolutely wonderful helping us with floral and design!

The wedding day was an absolute dream! We’re still talking about how absolutely perfect it was! The whole day felt so smooth. Everything about the floral and design was exactly what I wanted! We received so many compliments from guests! Many thanks to Laura and to the team at Mayfield Events for making our wedding day the best day ever! If you are considering hiring a planner, it is 100% worth it and I fully recommend Laura and the team at Mayfield Events!

Happy Planning!
