Personalized Wedding Plan Eagle & Buffmire


Wedding Date: August 15, 2020
Ceremony & Reception Location: Private Residence: 6522 Belmead Drive Dallas, Texas 75230


Setting the Scene

Mary-Madison and Edwin were introduced to each other through a mutual friend. He is originally from Alaska and she is from Fort Worth.

They are looking to plan a wedding on August 15, 2020 with a ceremony in the front yard of her Aunt and Uncle’s home in Preston Hollow here in Dallas. They will follow that with a casual luncheon provided by a food truck and a fun and relaxed pool party. Most importantly though they want something that is a little different from everyone else and that is fun for their friends and family who will be traveling in. They will have 65 guests and are looking for a more casual mingling style reception.  

Mary-Madison & Edwin are interested in a planning package that includes both vendor and logistics support and overall concept and design. They will have a wedding with a large number of their friends in attendance and are looking for it to be fun and not too stuffy or cheesy.
