Saturday August the thirty-first was our Bridal Open House. Let me start off by stating that this was a major hit. The staff of the Oaks as well as MD Resort worked around the clock to ensure that everything went as smoothly as possible. The vendors that came out to our event really went above and beyond to make this an amazing event. Finally, this would not have been possible if it were not for all those who came out to support us. The brides along with the bridal parties, families, and friends were really the shining stars of this event.

Hillary Dunegan and Tiffany Wallon, our event and wedding coordinators, spent months organizing our Bridal Open House. This event grew a little bigger every day between the two of them. In addition to preparing for this, they were planning and executing weddings, shopping for and helping decorate The Oaks, the staffs’ new offices, and planning and executing our first major event at The Oaks, our Open House that was on August 24th. Without these two whirl wind wonder women the Bridal Open House may have been nothing more than a pipes dream!

The wedding vendors who came helped create a wonderful welcoming atmosphere. In a swirl of activity they came in early to set up a memorable event. The scent of wedding flowers and wedding food filled the air, and every shade of wedding colors brightened the area with beauty. From wedding gown white to tuxedo black, every color of the perfect dream wedding was here for a brides dreams to be seen as a possibility. There were food stations set up throughout the reception hall that offered everything from Italian to Mexican to a little bit of your classic Texas cuisine.

We cannot forget about the desert. Wedding cake samples were flying off the racks, from spice to red velvet, everything was delicious! The wedding DJ was decked from head to foot in plaid vintage that showed off his exquisite sense of fashion. The Oaks at MD Resort want to take a moment to thank every vendor that came. You all helped make this event into something that was so wonderful.

Brides came out in all their bridal glory! They brought with them family, friends, and members of their wedding parties. In a few cases, brides who could not make it sent out representatives for them. This event was a success because of everybody who came out. The Oaks would not be possible if it were not for all of the weddings in the world, and it is the brides who usually do all the planning. The brides are the reason that The Oaks can exist and the brides are the reason The Oaks and MD Resort were able to create this event.

I would like to conclude by sending a special thanks to all the brides in the world. I raise a
toast to your lifetime of happiness with the love of your life. May all your dreams come true, and may you have goodness and happiness throughout all of your days! Please know that our doors are always open to you. MD Resort is where you may join us as guests, but will leave us as family!
