Aimee and Ryan are a Cool Couple who are very much in ... L O V E !

The Wall Gallery, located on Dragon Street in the Design District, is a unique venue that
works perfectly for wedding receptions of 100 or fewer attendees.
Congratulations to Aimee and Ryan, who were wed earlier this month before an intimate group of friends at family at the Wall Gallery in the Design District. We are very thankful to have played a major role in celebrating the love these two wonderful people obviously feel for each other.

The courtyard at The Wall Gallery is very unique for art galleries
located in the Design District, and lends itself to cocktails
and casual conversation.
Aimee and Ryan’s choice of the Wall Gallery for both their ceremony and reception perfectly reflects their personalities - easy going, smart, laid back, and very focused on the happiness of their closest friends and family. From the non-traditional venue to the eclectic choice of music (both for the wedding and for the reception), to the carefully selected beverages, this couple provided a beautiful experience for their guests that looked and felt effortless.

Kristi Kirkpatrick at the Wall Gallery is a delight to work with – and her gallery is absolutely perfect for receptions of 100 or fewer attendees. Aimee and Ryan’s reception welcomed approximately 85 guests. The floorplan for the evening, which was designed by Dallas Light and Sound, featured both inside and outside seating. The inside seating was arranged theatre style with a combination of 60” rounds and 30” highboys positioned in a semi-circle so that all attendees could see the ceremony, which took place right inside of the Wall Gallery font doors. The seating arrangement meant that before and after the ceremony, the visual focus of the evening was on the courtyard, which featured DLS highboys crowned with silver candelabras and white taper candles. Aimee was resplendent entering through the courtyard and her white dress looked lovely against our black carpet entry – chosen to echo the black elements present in the floor to ceiling window and door framing that separates the main gallery from the courtyard.

Linens for the evening consisted of white with white organza overlays in the courtyard. In the main gallery space we utilized cream linens throughout and cream organza overlays on the highboys. The choice of cream linens inside the gallery added warmth to the space and helped to bring together the “total look.” The white linens outside reflected the white walls of the gallery while bringing a touch of grandeur to the courtyard. Soaring florals from Parc21 were the crowning element that completed the “look” inside of the gallery. Their 4 foot tall golden vases picked up on the gold Chiavari chairs supplied by Dallas Light and Sound which looked lovely against our cream linens – and all together brought warmth and a special touch of sparkle to the room.

The retrained yet elegant décor for this reception allowed the artwork in the gallery to really “pop”. Since some that artwork included recent works by Dallas Pop Artist Johnathan Kimbrell – the look of the room really sang and spoke to the fun personality of the couple.
In addition to providing tables, chairs, linens, and décor elements for this reception, Dallas Light and Sound provided DJ services for the evening with DJ Tony Dean curating tracks that fit a very unique playlist supplied by the bride and groom. Artists played during the reception included Blind Pilots, Fitz and the Tantrums, Alabama Shakes, The Rolling Stones, The Black Keys, and Ray Lamontagne. One look at this list and its obvious – Aimee and Ryan are a cool couple with cool friends. Thanks so much for allowing Dallas Light and Sound to help you plan your big day.
