Nincy Samuel and Jerry Jacob met when they were just nine and 11 years old, respectively, as their parents were friends and planned a family trip to Disney World together. “Fast forward 20 years, Jerry messaged me and asked me to get coffee,” remembers Nincy of the unexpected inquiry. “We met in the afternoon and talked until the waitress informed us that the coffee shop was closing at 9PM… We realized we had been talking for hours! It was love at ‘second sight,’” smiles the bride.
After a day of pampering, Nincy was surprised with a memorable sunset proposal at Turtle Creek Park in Dallas, Texas, the city where they reside. Just one year later, Dallas became the location of their nuptials. Though they wanted a Parisian feel, they began wedding planning during the pandemic when traveling wasn’t an option. “We wanted our guests to feel like they were transported to Europe for the day,” shares the bride of the estate they selected for their “I dos.” “It was everything we were envisioning and more.”
The pair worked with an incredible team of wedding professionals to make their dream wedding a reality, and they also included their families throughout the celebration. In fact, the sister of the bride designed the stationery for the wedding day. “My sister Neetha is so talented,” muses Nincy. “She made all the invites, paper goods, and signage for the event!”
“Baby’s breath lining the aisle made me feel like I was walking through a field of flowers.”
Friends and family found their seats for the elegant nuptials atop golden chairs facing an asymmetrical arch of whimsical florals for the Christian Indian Orthodox ceremony. The color palette for the wedding design featured white with touches of gold and light pink to create the romantic ambience the couple envisioned. “I wanted romantic, light, and airy florals,” describes Nincy of the arrangements. “Baby’s breath lining the aisle made me feel like I was walking through a field of flowers.”
As guests enjoyed cocktail hour, the newlyweds made sure to have some time with one another. “We had heard from so many people that the wedding day went by so fast they weren’t able to process everything, so we made sure to schedule time for us to have a moment with each other once we were married,” says the bride. Before the doors opened for their guests, Nincy and Jerry took a moment in the reception space to witness the décor and enjoy a private dinner. Later in the night, they also shared a last dance while everyone prepared for the sparkler exit. “Those moments were our favorites,” she adds.
Guest tables were cloaked with neutral linens to allow the centerpieces and natural scenery viewed through the windows of the space to take center stage. The centerpieces mirrored the floral theme first introduced in the ceremony, with light-and-airy designs that felt both romantic and whimsical. Long, family-style tables were adorned with pink-toned taper candles and arrangements highlighting baby’s breath down the middle to create an intimate feel for the large-scale celebration of 250 guests in attendance.
Following the dinner service, friends and family enjoyed slices of vanilla rum cake and cookies-and-cream cake, which were beautifully decorated with fondant details that took inspiration from the walls of French châteaux, fitting the bride’s Parisian vision. Once their palates were satiated, loved ones took to the dance floor for a night of revelry. “Being South Indian-Americans, we wanted to make sure that we incorporated aspects of our Indian culture,” notes the bride, adding: “We wanted the reception to be lively and energetic, filled with lots of dancing!”
