These pieces really filled the space and made for a truly intimate feel. Stage 2 Lighting brought the look together with a stunning starry look on the vaulted ceiling and café lights throughout the space. Union Stations’ quirky ancillary spaces made a perfect spot for a recreation of Heather and Kevin’s favorite bar hangout at USC. Guests had a blast with the custom foam fingers printed with the couple’s new last name and a surprise performance from the USC Marching Band! Experience and a creative plan really brought this wedding to life and made it feel truly personal to Heather and Kevin.

Heather and Kevin met at USC and wanted to have their wedding in their hometown in Dallas with a few fun nods to where they met. When they saw Union Station, they fell in love with the incredible architecture of this grand cavernous space and had their heart set on an intimate reception. With years of working in this venue, combined with Heather’s vision for a gardenesque setting we collaborated on a vision for the space to make it feel full with a smaller guest count and highlight the beauty of the space. A large gable with floral details created by Jackson Durham made for a beautiful statement piece as well as bringing in large live trees.

“Julian is a true professional, and it shows from the amazing relationships he has established in the industry. He is there to give his honest opinion when you need to hear it, which I really appreciated. He made me feel great and completely in control of the planning process.”

-Heather, bride
