Desiring a Southern alfresco wedding, the bride and groom selected a serene setting in Texas with beautifully manicured lawns and towering trees. Blending an outdoor location with traditional décor, the couple’s loved ones found their seats for the ranch wedding on white church pews. The groom, who wore a tuxedo with a white bow tie, waited patiently for his bride beneath a ceremony structure constructed of branches and decorated with green leaves and blooms in shades of peach and apricot.
Bridesmaids in champagne-hued halter gowns carried pink-and-white bouquets, and groomsmen donned tuxedos. Flower girls wore sweet tulle ball gowns with blush skirts accessorized with pink flower crowns tied with ribbon as they stood with the bridesmaids at the front of the ceremony. The couple’s dog and a young flower girl were also pulled gracefully down the aisle in a white wagon. Guests turned their heads as the bride emerged wearing a strapless wedding dress featuring a sweetheart neckline accessorized with drop earrings and a sparkling tiara headpiece adorning her updo. She held a bouquet of verdant greenery, blush garden roses, and snowy blooms.
Following the ceremony, guests sat at tables covered with either blush linens or left bare of any fabric for the outdoor reception. Wooden rectangular tables showcased floral runners of hydrangeas, roses, and oversized protea blooms, while round tables displayed similar blooms accented with succulents. Twinkling string lights suspended above tables provided a charming atmosphere as guests dined on delectable fare and chose between a variety of signature drinks. An eight-tier wedding cake featuring ornate decorations to match the bride’s gown was served to guests, as were slices from the groom’s cake: a replica of the University of Texas Tower and the Longhorn logo. To end the evening, guests erupted confetti in celebration as the newlyweds exited the venue as Mr. and Mrs.
