The Venue at Waterstone Dallas Wedding Reception – Jerod & Kiersten

Looking for a beautiful, Texas barn wedding?  Look no further!  Kiersten & Jerod chose The Venue at Waterstone in Celina, Tx (North of Dallas) to bring their family and friends together for a day of celebration as they said I Do for forever!  With the Texas heat in the summertime, the indoor ceremony and reception was perfect and the transformation during Cocktail Hour/pictures was seamless and beautiful!   Since the bride herself is a wedding coordinator for Altar Ego Weddings, I knew it would be just perfect – and it was! Enjoy a look at part 2 of Jerod & Kiersten’s wedding day below and make sure to leave them some comment love!  You don’t want to miss a photo-bomb by Swany, their gorgeous 28-person wedding party, the Last Dance or sparkler exit!! Having a private Last Dance while you’re guests line up and prep for your exit? Sounds like perfection in my book! btw – there were cookies in here.  I may have grabbed 5 bags left at the end of the night.  SO delicious and thoughtful!  Lesson 1: Do not light an entire handful of sparklers all at once.   Glad he’s okay! Hazzah!!!!   The happy parents ‘end of the wedding’ photo may be my new favorite to make happen!
