Mid-century Modern Wedding in Dallas

I have one heck of a backyard wedding to share with you filled with color and history and so much love!

But first, I have to tell you about the location. The historic 1957 Cupaioli House in Dallas, Texas is absolutely insane. I have never seen anything like it. Seriously it is the house of my dreams. It is a completely preserved Mid-century Modern home, included with decor from the original owners, fashion designer Edward Cupaioli and wife singer Margaret. Legend has it their house was a gathering place for the likes of Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Doris Day. Oh if those walls could talk!

As a photographer I have been in a lot of nice homes but this was the only home I had a moment visualizing myself living in. Even now I just want to LIVE in these photos. I want to pull up in this boat of a Cadillac with my 2.5 kids in the backseat with no seat belts on and carry my groceries in paper bags, my bell bottoms swinging below, and walk into this bitchin house and sip tang by the pool while I smoke Virginia slims. I can see it all happening!!

How very lucky for Brynna and Sawyer to be family friends with the current owners of the Cupailoi House. To be given the blessing to get married there must have been icing on the cake. And how lucky for ME that this stylish couple was looking specifically for a wedding photographer who could capture their day on film. yay me!

As soon as Melissa Tacker from Grace of Love Events contacted me and described the wedding day details I immediately fell in love with Brynna and Sawyer’s creative vision. These high school sweethearts wanted an intimate, mid-century modern feel to their wedding to play off the cool retro vibe of the home. They even had a classic 1967 Cadillac Eldorado as their getaway car and requested double exposure photos! (which were all done in camera with film, i might add. eh hem) It was glorious. I’m so lucky I got to spend the day in MCM heaven with them.
