I have the sweetest wedding to share with you today! This is the wedding of Emalie and Jonathan who married in Dallas last October. The vintage chic wedding featured polka dots and was captured by Scott and Tem Photography who the couple hired after falling in love with their candid and photo journalistic style.

The couple saw each other before the ceremony to capture the beautiful light. Emalie’s gorgeous 3/4 length dress was  made by a local French designer Elle Et Lui Designs while the groom wore a suit by local Italian designer Alberto Cercone Designs.

Gyros String Quartet played during the ceremony. The couple weren’t fussed about the music and told the quartet to just play appropriate music. Emalie says “They did a great job too!…everyone was raving about them”

The couple hired a photobooth from Create The Memories Photo Booth. The photos were pasted into a book where guests wrote messages for the couple.

The most terrifying moment of the night was the first dance. Neither of the couple are good dancers so after three seconds of “fake dancing” and much laughter they left the dancing to their guests!

The venue banned sparklers so Emalie and Jonathan had guests send them off with glow sticks!

Thank you Emalie and Jonathan for sharing your gorgeous wedding on Polka Dot Bride!

    I love this wedding! I love the mix between vintage (veil, dress, shoes) and ultra modern – the photo of the building behind the set-up for the ceremony is just fab, so different! I often look at photos of weddings and think “ooh pretty” but this one makes me wish I was a guest :)
