A Blue-Checkered Dance Floor Made This Wedding One to Remember

Aidan Strother & Timot Kellermayer
April 29, 2023

Houston-raised Timot Kellermayer met Aidan Strother, a Seattle native, in Dallas during their first month of medical school. Their love blossomed on the shores of White Rock Lake, where they’d meet for walks during the COVID-19 pandemic. After two-and-a-half years of dating, the outdoorsy pair ventured to Maui, where, against the backdrop of a breathtaking sunset, Timot dropped to his knee at the end of a volcanic hike. When it came to choosing a wedding venue, the couple returned to where it all began, hosting a reception at The Filter Building, which overlooks White Rock Lake. “It was really special to that have spot in the city,” says Aidan. “This is our spot. This is where we got to know each other, where we fell in love.”

After the ceremony, a pair of “beer burros” greeted guests. “They were a big hit at the cocktail hour!” Aiden remembers.

Gold Plated

Planner Sharon Frazier incorporated subtle color to achieve the neutral but feminine feel Aidan desired.  The robin-egg-blue chargers “were the perfect punch of color,” Sharon says, while gold flatware “warmed things up.”
