UT and Texas Tech Alums Mackenzie Voorhies and Reid Stewart Wed—Where Else?—at SMU

Mackenzie Voorhies and Reid Stewart
August 15, 2020

After high-school sweethearts—turned collegiate long-distance lovers—Mackenzie Voorhies and Reid Stewart graduated from UT Austin and Texas Tech University, respectively, they decided to see their love story through with a “Yes!” and an “I do.” The couple went classic for a ceremony site—choosing Perkins Chapel at SMU for its timeless, neutral feel—but were romanced by the “glam” and “sparkle” of The Adolphus Hotel for a reception venue. On the big day, Mackenzie and her maids carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, and lisianthus, which were also used at the reception in towering arrangements and etched gold vases. After months of touch-and-go quarantine regulations, the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. were more than ready to celebrate with family and friends who had watched their relationship grow through the years. A sentimental ceremony was followed by a joyous party, where they danced all night to a 10-piece band. “The buzz in the air all day was so exciting,” Mackenzie recalls. “It felt like pure happiness.” —Jennifer Hayes
