Dannan Payne & Seth Jameson

Dannan Payne & Seth Jameson

For high school sweethearts Dannan Payne and Seth Jameson, it all began with a Southlake Caroll Dragon football game ten years ago. After an awkward first date as teenagers, they soon became inseparable. The couple spent some time apart during college (Dannan graduated from the University of Oklahoma and Seth, the University of Nebraska). But once they both got back to their hometown, Dallas, they picked right back up where they had left off. Seth surprised Dannan with a proposal on a Christmas carriage ride.

Dannan and Seth were married on July 22, 2017. The couple wanted the Dallas skyline to feature prominently in their big night, which is why they chose the Renaissance as their reception venue. Their decor was very simple and pulled back, working backwards off of Seth’s summer blue tuxedo. They added blush, gold, and cream tones to the color palette, to balance it all out for the summer wedding. To personalize it further, they had their homecoming mums out for display, and added a few of Dannan’s grandfather’s decanters to the tables, which they filled with blush and white roses. Seth made his own cake stand, which he decorated with his Nebraska class ring.

Highlights of the wedding took place on the dance floor: Dannan and her dad had a choreographed dance, where Dannan pulled off a flip in her dress. Pokey O’s ice cream sandwiches were passed around between speeches and breaking out the moves. The night ended with a Kappa Kappa Gamma chant and an exit with Southlake Carroll green-and-white pom poms, topped off by a kiss in the elevator. In the elevator, the couple decided they couldn’t stop celebrating, and went back up for an hour and a half of more! Dannan and Seth, quite literally, danced the night away.
