Katy, a marriage and family therapist, met her husband William, who works in fulfillment for an e-commerce brand, on the rooftop bar of the Georgia Theater in Athens, Georgia. After eight years of long-distance dating off and on, Katy and William rekindled their sparks mid-pandemic and moved to Dallas to begin a more permanent life together.  One Friday night, William enlisted a special helper (their goldendoodle, Dash) to present Katy with an engagement ring. After a romantic evening at her favorite restaurant, the couple returned home to find Dash posed perfectly with a ring on his collar. Spoiler alert: Katy said yes! 


When it came to choosing the wedding venue, The St. Regis Deer Valley was a no-brainer. It is a destination Katy’s family has been frequenting for decades. Bluebird Event Destination Management and Artisan Bloom teamed to complement the mountain peaks with Katy’s dream décor: a garden party fit for royalty. “Flowers, flowers, flowers—that’s what I wanted” Katy says. “Our vendors really understood how much I love color and a bright environment.” 

Katy walked down an aisle framed in rosy blooms wearing a fitted Monique L’Huillier gown with flourishing floral lace and off-the-shoulder straps. On her way to join William, she had her father on one arm and a blushing bouquet in the hand of the other. At the pink-backed altar, a wedding party 32-strong stood in support, with groomsmen in sharp blue suits and the maids each clad in a unique petal-hued dress. The couple was married by Katy’s best friend Jordan, who led a ceremony filled with sweet memories and laughter.

Guests followed a New Orleans-style processional to a tent on the hotel’s terrace for dinner and dancing. From the top down, the event’s design was a celebration of femininity, florals and classic beauty. At the peak of the transparent tent, dazzling crystal chandeliers glittered from all angles. The main focal point was a 12-foot floral wreath encircled in sprays of pink peony, ranunculus and rose. Garlands of greenery wound each fence pole, drawing the eye to the towering centerpieces atop sleek gold stands.



The couple selected a classic wedding menu, with beef filet and Chilean Sea bass as main courses, and grilled cheese at the afterparty. Dessert included a cookie bar and two impressive cakes: a six-tier snickerdoodle cake dressed in large blossoms and a groom’s cake in the shape of The Master’s logo. 

The Party Crashers crooned covers of classics as the couple and their guests danced together at the reception. “We didn’t love the idea of all eyes on us for a first dance, so we invited everyone to join in.” Shortly after the reception, a DJ began an hours-long University of Georgia-themed afterparty in the Deer Crest Club, where black and red balloons and Bulldog memorabilia celebrated the new couple. All through the night, Katy and William danced, cheered and partied with their guests. 


Katy and William celebrated their marriage with an adventure in Maui, which included equal parts lounging by the ocean and touring the island’s landscapes and volcanoes by both bicycle and helicopter.
