The Empire Room!  There are only a few places in Dallas where you get the entire floor of a venue with a spectacular view.  This is one of them!  It is the perfect place for a wedding and reception, reception only, parties, and corporate events. 

Thanks Laura for inviting me.  It is such great fun to spend an evening with amazing  talented  wedding and event professionals.   It is great to get a chance to visit which we do not get to do often.  I have included photographs of their work... My photography is getting better sooo enjoy!

Oh! and a big hello to Marla Watson-Wesrst
( and Ashely Holder.
Also, thanks to my June brides Kelly, June 6   and Ayra, June27  for stopping by!  They are Empire Room brides.  
If you are interested in seeing the Empire Room dressed for a wedding and reception when we are  the creative team...ask Laura or contact me directly and I'll let you know what time!  See you soon!

I designed the ceremony space for the evening.   Candle lighting is amazing in this space. Candle screens with heavy sheers, curly willow trees with loads of hanging candles softens the dark wood in the space.  Brides just need to remember the days are longer in the summer so you want to think about the start time for maximum ambiance.  The Empire Room also has dimmers an that also enhances the ambiance.  Another consideration is uplighting. Brides: check the Farmer's Almanac for the time of sunrise or sunset.  I made these photos so they are not "fabulous".  I am getting better.

Laura Kelsey is the Catering and Sales Manager at the Empire Room.  They open every third Thursday of the month for open house. Brides and corporate planners get to meet and see some of Dallas' most talented wedding and event designers.
Gil's Elegant Catering provided the amazing food, beverages and service.  They also provide off site catering.

The views from this space are fabulous.  Guest spend a lot of time just to see what they can see.  You can create the backdrop you want. This was a noon wedding.
