Welcome back, Maharanis! It is time to unveil Benita & Jason's fantastic reception party! So get ready to have some fun! Held in the halls of the exclusive Hyatt Regency Dallas, this reception party was one for the books! Alpha Décor crafted an elegant decor that impressed everyone and ambiance the room in such an excellent way that it seemed out of this world. DJ Riz Entertainment complemented the incredible environment by setting the musical mood with upbeat melodies and a fabulous scheme of lights that everyone enjoyed! Without any question, this gala was a huge success! But there is no surprise here as the mastermind behind the planning and execution of this event was none other than the talented K.I. Weddings. Although there was plenty of beauty to admire, it was our gorgeous Benita who stole all the looks dressed in her white dress draped and tied by JJ Drapes. She looked breathtaking! All the guests had the time of their lives dancing, chatting, tasting the sweet treats from Market Street Bakery, and taking lots of photos inside Red Photobooth's booth! If you want to relive this fantastic journey to get more inspiring ideas to start planning your wedding, don't miss the awesome shots captured by John David Weddings in today's gallery! It is worth the while!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
I’ve known Jason since I was a child. We went to the same church all of our lives and were actually best friends during high school. He gave me boy advice and I gave him girl advice. It was time for college and we were splitting ways. Jason realized I was more than a friend and asked me to be his girlfriend. Three months into the relationship I knew he was the one. We’ve been together for 9 years since that day.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
I just had graduated from physical therapy school and really wanted to go on a trip. I decided on Italy and of course, I wanted Jason to come along. I did all the planning for each day but somehow he managed to make one of those days a surprise proposal. It was the most magical experience to get proposed to in your favorite city - Positano, Italy
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Jason and I got all our major vendors out of the way right off the bat. We knew we wanted DJ Riz since the beginning because he’s been amazing at all of our friends’ weddings. Alpha decor was recommended to me by a friend and it was also one of the best decisions that I made. The decor was so heavenly and at such an affordable price. Everyone else did a fantastic job, including KI Weddings who made the whole event seamless and no stress whatsoever for us as a couple. Makeup and hair did a fantastic job as well!!
How did you select your bridal lengha or wedding dress? Did you have a favorite color in mind?
Honestly, I didn’t spend much time picking it out. It felt right and I just went for it! Circle park in Addison has incredible Choices. My bridesmaids outfits were actually custom made for each of them.
What was the most enjoyable part of the planning process, and why?
The most enjoyable part was doing it with my husband because I absolutely hate planning to be honest. But again, thank god for KI weddings who made it so much less stressful!!
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
They loved the DJ and how smoothly everything went. Also was complimented on the Raising Cane’s afterparty food!!
Was there a really special moment in your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
My sister’s speech was something special to me that I’ll never forget. Also walking down the aisle to the person I’ll be with forever!
Do you have any words of wisdom for Brides-To-Be?
Don’t stress out too much, it’s one day and everything will go way better than expected. Save the drinking for later and make sure the experience every moment of the beautiful day!
