The Joule FAM Event – A Luxury Wedding Planner Experience


Oct 9, 2018

The Joule Hotel has been a long-time favorite of mine since it was first built in downtown Dallas. As a former downtown resident, I frequented the hotel’s restaurant, which at the time was the Charlie Palmer Steakhouse, with my then boyfriend (now husband!) Sam. We became close to many of the staff at the hotel and restaurant, frequenting it for all special occasions. Some fun facts:

  1. We had our first dance as a couple in The Joule’s lobby during a Valentine’s Day prix-fixe dinner (Frank Sintara’s ‘Night and Day’ sung by Ricky Derek).
  2. Sam proposed via a scavenger hunt, sending me to all of our favorite places in Dallas – The Joule was stop #3.
  3. Our Rehearsal Dinner was catered by our friend and Chef Scott Romano from Charlie Palmer
  4. We spent our wedding night and the following day at The Joule.

Needless to say, this hotel is near and dear to my heart! So, when the catering and events team approached me to photograph their upcoming FAM event I was ecstatic and completely honored!

The day started off with an early check-in and relaxing poolside (which turned into just relaxing with champagne due to rain). Then, it was off to hair and make up by the talented Maitee Miles in prep for the evening. To begin the evening, Dallas’ top wedding planners were treated to a sensory voyage – a Forty Five Ten fragrance Masterclass led by Shasa Mitcham. Planners were matched with a signature scent over champagne and appetizers. Dinner was served over four courses in the Mosaic Ballroom, completely decked out in floral, beautifully designed tablescapes and live music. Once dinner was completed, everyone was welcomed to the Joule’s Terrace via the iconic glass elevator. The afterparty mixed more live music with fun cocktails and whimsical desserts. After a night of rest, planners woke up to tailored spa treatments before reconvening for Tea at Tachen. The teas were presented with delicious bites and more champagne.

I’m already ready to go back! Who else wants to have a luxury wedding at The Joule in Downtown Dallas?!
