Lamar Wilson and Andy Osborne Kept it Classic for their Special Day

Mutual friends of Lamar Wilson and Andy Osborne brought the two together one night at a party. From then on, Lamar and Andy’s friendship blossomed into a beautiful love story.

After an evening out with friends at Smoke, Andy whisked Lamar away to the top of Belmont Hotel. While overlooking downtown Dallas, Andy gave Lamar the surprise of her life and got down on one knee. If that was not enough, Andy orchestrated both of their families and friends to gather in a spot where they could secretly watch Lamar excitedly say “yes.” To celebrate the engagement, Lamar and Andy’s friends and loved ones shared in their special night at the Belmont Hotel bar. “It was an amazing night that we will never forget,” Lamar says.

One of Lamar and Andy’s passions was spending time outdoors while at their country house in East Texas. In the effort to incorporate the outdoors into their late-April wedding, the bride found her inspiration in “all things Ralph Lauren.” A French blue theme with white flowers maintained the classic wedding look, paired with tortoise shell accents, antlers, and greenery to highlight the couple’s love of nature and hunting.

The bride did not want to go the traditional route when it came to the bridesmaids’ attire, but instead wanted each bridesmaid to pick a dress that suited their own style. Among the French blues, the bridesmaids added variety to the wedding’s colors in unique dresses varying in color. “All I gave them was a color scheme of blues to choose from,” said Lamar.

To make the April 28, 2018, ceremony special, Andy’s father acted as the wedding officiant. “He was ordained just for the occasion and proudly led our wedding ceremony,” reflected the bride. “It was a special moment for both our families.”

To finish the night in style, Lamar changed into a white, feathery flapper-girl style dress. “I knew I wanted a comfortable outfit to change into during the wedding so I could dance,” Lamar says. Out of “sheer luck,” Lamar found the classic dress the day before the wedding. “I grabbed if off the rack at Neiman’s and it fit perfectly!”

Lamar and Andy’s friends and families tossed sparkling silver streamers to say farewell. The newlyweds shared one more kiss while covered in streamers, hopped in their dreamy white getaway car, and drove off into the night as husband and wife.
