Dallas Reception Selection – Hall of State

I absolutely loved my reception venue, but since starting on my mission to see a ton of Dallas venues, I’ve discovered that there were way more options in Dallas for cool event spaces than I realized when I was doing my research from NYC. One spot that I had heard of but didn’t look into...

    It always pays to enquire, the venue looks impressive. How can you fry an Oreo? ReplyCancel

    I’m not sure, but they serve them at the Texas State Fair here in Dallas. Fried Oreos, Fried Snickers, Fried Twinkies. You name it, they find I way to fry it!ReplyCancel

    Who is credited with the photos of the Hall of State?ReplyCancel

    • KimberlyApril 16, 2015 - 4:07 pm

      Hi Dwan – These photos were from the Hall of State’s website back when this post first appeared in 2011. There is no photographer listed on their website for these particular photos.ReplyCancel

To Taste the Cake

Wedding cake is my favorite part of any wedding reception. Hands down. I know that cupcakes have been trendy over the last several years and wedding pies are starting to build steam, but for me, wedding cake is where it’s at. In my latest Etsy “window shopping” spree, I stumbled across these handstamped vintage forks...

Before & After: The Flower Factor

It was a hugely successful weekend for Hitched Events as we coordinated a 51st birthday celebration for a Dallas client. I have to say, if I can party half as hard as these folks when I turn 51, life will be good. Between the DJ, mariachis, belly dancer and cigar roller, there was no way...

What We’re Up To This Weekend

I’m in the final preparations for a 51st birthday celebration tonight at a client’s private residence. First off, the home is gorgeous on it’s own, but I’m bringing in amazing florals and decor that will surely transform the space and make the party extra special. They’ve asked all guests to dress in white, so we’re...

    The Pick of the Pillows

    I’m a huge fan of a decorative pillow. I know… it sounds silly, but seriously, a unique pillow can transform an otherwise dull space, add a pop of color or simply make a statement, not to mention that pillows can also be a really inexpensive way to decorate. I used pillows throughout my wedding reception...

      Wow!! Im thinking maybe I should move my wedding to Dallas! My family are from Louisiana and I have a lot of family and friends coming from houston and the surrounding area!! Humm this might be an option!!ReplyCancel

      • Kimberly | Hitched EventsAugust 14, 2011 - 1:46 pm

        I LOVE this space. If it had been open when I planned my wedding, I totally would have had mine here, although it’s a little big for my small wedding. It’s owned by the same chef who ran my reception venue, so the food is amazing. I 100% support you having a Dallas wedding! Or I could come help out in DC 🙂ReplyCancel

Chavvon said he was going to submit our wedding, but there was no guarantee that it would be selected. Well…. wouldn’t you...
