It's been said before, and I’ll say it again — they go big in Texas, and this couldn't have been more apparent than at the nuptials of The Real Housewives of Dallas’ LeeAnne Locken and Rich Emberlin. Held over the weekend, the couple was married at the Cathedral of Hope, where LeeAnne's wedding planner Steve Kemble draped the space in 120 yards of silver silk fabric hung 16 feet in the air, setting the tone for one of the city’s most extravagant weddings of the season.
“I know what Cinderella felt like,” LeeAnne told PEOPLE. “The whole wedding was perfect. It couldn’t have been better. I’m smart enough to know perfection doesn’t exist, but if anything could attain perfection, that was it.”
If her ceremony was pure romance, LeeAnne’s reception was pure party. Held at the showroom of designer Prashe Shah (he handled the cathedral flowers below), guests were greeted by neon cowboys, living lamp ladies, disco ninjas, and oh yeah, an aerialist hanging from the ceiling riding a cowboy saddle. Traditional, this ceremony was not! “I didn’t want a traditional, stuffy wedding reception. I wanted a full-on party,” said LeeAnne.
Awash in hues of gold, silver, and black, the space itself featured a whopping 17 chandeliers alongside thoughtful set-ups like LeeAnne’s “words of wisdom” table where guests could wish the couple well.

The Glittering Reception Space
Held at her floral designer's showroom, LeeAnne's wedding reception was a "full-on party," complete with 17 chandeliers and a 10-piece band.
The Welcome Table
The couple's welcome table was of mirrors, flickering candles, and white florals.
To say there was never a dull moment at the reception would be an understatement. A slew of performers kept guests on their toes, including these dancing lamp ladies covered in mirrors!

Always one to listen to advice, LeeAnne connected with her guests by asking them to give her and her husband some marital tips.
