Cameron gifted each of his groomsmen with bottles of his favorite wine, Mercury Head. Each bottle comes with a silver coin embellishment, and Cameron took each coin and had custom cuff links made.

One of Dallas’ most popular bakeries, Panini Bakery & Cakes, made this seven-tier confection with a cascade of white orchids creating a pool of flowers on the table.

THE COUPLE
Kathryn Dennis, known to her friends and family as Katie, met Cameron Ford in their freshman year at University of Oklahoma through an introduction by the person who ended up being the best man. After dating for six years, Cameron flew Katie out to Napa, Calif., to celebrate their anniversary and her birthday, and then surprised her with a proposal.

THE DETAILS
Katie’s mother, Nancy Dennis, and her sister, Jaclyn, helped plan the entire wedding. A color scheme of lavender and apple green was created with lush floral arrangements by Junior of The Garden Gate. “I had one meeting with Junior and I just knew he would handle it,” says Katie. “And he did. I was so pleased with the flowers.” A Mirror Mirror photo booth at the reception and The Bulletproof Brass Band added energy to the reception.

WHAT WE LEARNED
“Trust your vendors,” Katie says. “Crystal, my wedding planner, told me to sit back and relax, and she totally came through. The month before the wedding, I was suddenly so calm. I’m sure problems probably happened but they didn’t let me know about anything, so I could enjoy my day.”

THE HONEYMOON
The newlyweds snorkeled at The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua and Grand Wailea, but the best part: “We would get a cabana and watch the Masters all afternoon. He’s really lucky he married a girl who loves golf.”
