See How This Bride Took Inspiration From a John James Audubon Illustration For Her Big Day

Sheridan Horn & Briggs Montgomery
April 30, 2022

When Sheridan Horn’s wedding Plan A (destination nuptials in Aspen) got derailed by COVID restrictions, she moved straight to Plan D—D for Dallas, that is, the city where the Chicago native met and fell for her Dallasite groom. The couple’s relocated celebration (a romantic garden party-inspired affair) was fueled by their three must-haves: great drinks, fab food, and live music all night long. “Our band played from the minute the party started until the minute it ended,” says the bride, who credits the continuous tunes for the event’s nonstop fun. But, as Sheridan notes, it was their loved ones who made the night truly special: “What I learned from the whole process was it’s not about where the wedding is; it’s about who is there.”

Sheridan Horn & Briggs Montogomery's Wedding Escort Display

Top Flight

A three-dimensional escort display featuring soaring paper birds reminiscent of the couple’s stationery welcomed guests to the reception. “I love a good theme!” says Sheridan.

Out With A Bang

A fireworks display accompanied the couple’s getaway in a 1957 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud. Sheridan picked the vehicle because it’s one of Briggs’ favorite vintage cars—and it just so happened to pair perfectly with the wedding’s color scheme.
