Melissa & Derek

March 15, 2019

Filed in: Room on Main

The first day I met with Melissa in our office in uptown Dallas, I just instantly loved her! She is so kind and loving and I knew right away that I wanted to be able to serve her and Derek. Our process started by constructing their budget and the things that they really valued. Then we were off to find an appropriate venue.

It didn’t take very long for Melissa and Derek to settle on the History Room on Main with its fantastic views of Fair Park as well as downtown Dallas.

Melissa and her bridal party got ready at the Statler Hotel, with the assistance of the Natalia Issa Beauty Team. Melissa’s wedding dress was a Pronovias from Bridal Boutique Lewisville, It was pure fall perfection with sleeves!

For the Ceremony, Melissa and Derek got married at the Room on Main and flipped the space after for the reception. It truly only took about 10 minutes with the outstanding staff at CN Catering. Her ceremony string trio musician played her down the aisle to a song by Sigur Ros that was very special to the bride. There was not a dry eye in the room.

Melissa’s flowers were carefully selected to match her simple nature and attention to detail! We really enjoyed designing these for her. Her bouquet was amazing, with a mixture of greenery textures, berries, dahlias, roses and a soft blending of the greenery, navy hints, blushes, and deep reds. It was stunning! Her centerpieces used black as the accent metallic (HUGE 2019 and 2020 trend, Melissa… you are ahead of the game!)

The guests enjoyed cocktail hour as Mariachi from Mariachi Sol de Mi Tierra was played. I have never seen such a fun and lively cocktail hour!

Dinner was stations served by CN Catering and the bride’s cake was a lovely 4 tiered piece from the designers at Crumble and Kettle! The groom’s dessert was a real show stopper, however, a full ice cream sundae bar!

Jaime Chavez with Ambiance Entertainment had the crowd going ALL NIGHT LONG! It was unreal!

Finally, the good folks over at Blue Diamond Limo sent their classic white Bentley with an open roof to take Derek and Melissa back the Statler!

Of course,  Anna Smith Photography captured the whole night perfectly!


Melissa’s review of us on The Knot:

After being recommended by a friend of mine who has worked with several different wedding planning services and after my first meeting with Laura, there was no doubt in my mind that Mayfield Events was the best choice to help us fully plan our wedding! Laura is not only knowledgeable and professional, but she is so kind and caring; she truly cares about her brides and it shows! I could not have done this without her! I hope she knows how much of a positive impact she’s had on such a special moment of our lives…we are forever grateful to have had the opportunity to truly enjoy our wedding journey! I would recommend Mayfield Events over and over again. ?
