WOW! It has officially been over a year since the stunning wedding of our own Kelsey and her husband Matt! It is always fun to watch one of your favorite people get married, and anyone who comes to the venue meets, and instantly falls in love with, Kelsey. We are SO excited to share her and Matt’s big day with you all!
Like we said, if you have come out to the French Farmhouse- you have met Kelsey! We were not shocked one bit when she said she wanted bright colors and unique experiences that had never been done at the Farmhouse. Kelsey and her girls got ready at a hotel in Plano, so once they arrived mid-day Kelsey got to do a “first look” at the Chapel with her Mom, our incredible owner, Michelle by her side. This was such a special moment because Kelsey and Michelle have poured their hearts and souls into the French Farmhouse! Seeing their reaction was magical!
Kelsey and Matt really wanted to create an experience for their guests. They wanted it to feel special, and be a great party. From the moment guests arrived, it was just that. As everyone walked over to the chapel for the ceremony there were live musicians in the trees playing strings, and champagne being passed with the new Mr. and Mrs. Thompson’s monogram on the glasses.
We might be biased, but this ceremony was perfect! Every ounce of it was Kelsey and Matt. Their personalities, the florals and the Chapel being packed to the brim…it is all them! On top of it all, they had the cutest, furriest ring bearer. You may have seen him on our Instagram before. This is Kelsey’s beloved pup Jax- we wouldn’t say he stole the show or anything, but he really had some memorable moments.
After the ceremony guests walked to cocktail hour, where there was a huge circular bar and lounge seating on the turf. The main venue was used only for dinner, making it COMPLETELY different from a typical wedding at the Farmhouse. The floral team really went all out.
The Flip of All Flips
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the night was after dinner. While guests were enjoying dinner, the Chapel was being flipped for the party! There was a crew of 60+ people that came in and completely transformed the chapel from a stunning Ceremony site to a room ready for party time! They installed a stage for the amazing Jordan Kahn Orchestra, the dance floor was laid, a dessert bar came in, coffee and regular bars were set up, a 360 photo booth and *the* cake.
It was completely shocking to walk in after dinner and have a live band greet you, with barely anything looking the same.
It could not have been more fun of a party, or a more special evening celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs. Thompson!
Congratulations, Kelsey and Matt! On behalf of the entire French Farmhouse team- we love you guys and are so happy for you! Thanks for letting us be a part of your big day!
This wedding DEFINITELY could not have happened without the incredible Vendor team. Thank you guys so much!
