N e s e Clemson University sweethearts had to endure long-distance post-grad, when Brittany Holl moved home to Dallas and Matt Moore settled into his native Charleston, S.C. But when this Southern charmer (and avid sailor) took his girl out to the Charleston Harbor, pulled out a bottle of Champagne and popped the question at sunset, the distance quickly closed. Living in Charleston now, the bride admits it was hard planning from afar, but she knew she wanted something glam so her guests could dress up, and downtown so the out-of-towners could enjoy the city. When her mother suggested the Dallas Museum of Art, it was set—this black-tie affair would take place under the colorful blown glass of Chihuly’s Hart Window. “Because it was held in an art museum, we wanted fun, unique elements,” says Brittany of the cheery touches like the candy bar (featuring the candy-loving groom’s favorite treat, Sour Patch Kids) and the tongue-in-cheek souvenir—a sketch by the famous original Butt Sketch artist. Not as risqu£ as it sounds, the artist made sweet charcoal sketches of guests from behind, a unique point of view that highlighted the ladies’ ballgowns. The couple even had a craft beer bar, a nod to Matt, who’s an investor in a local craft beer company in Charleston. The oversize bouquets by Bella Flora of Dallas were inspired by the Chihuly art above, but even Brittany’s neutrals were a glam take on the same-old, with bridesmaids donning stunning gold dresses, and on the classic, a vanilla buttercream-frosted bridal cake highlighted with gold spray paint.
