Wanting to pop the question at a location steeped in happy memories, Trevor Tollett proposed to Niña Barbier-Mueller at her family’s E-S Ranch. Eleven months later, Todd Fiscus of Todd Events created an unforgettable evening — inspired by the nuptials of the bride’s own parents, Ann and Gabriel Barbier-Mueller — at the same family ranch. Niña and Trevor exchanged vows in front of more than 1,000 family and friends in the sanctuary of Highland Park Presbyterian Church, then made the 25-minute trek outside Dallas to the reception. “It’s almost like it’s ‘good luck soil’ to start the next chapter of my life at the ranch,” Niña says. Guests were welcomed by dozens of glowing live oaks arching over the 175-foot drive, streams of magnolia leaves lining the tent ceiling, bagpipes, mariachis and a 17-piece band appropriately named
Big Blast and the Party Masters.
The Details That Count
14 French wine-cask globes

“I wanted simplicity, as the ranch itself is so beautiful on its own — I didn’t want to take away from its natural beauty. We made a conscious choice to match the trees and white fences, which is why the color scheme included greens, whites and some browns intermixed.” — Niña Barbier-Mueller Tollett
