Intimate, Vintage Hill Country Wedding at Red Corral Ranch

I feel so incredibly lucky that I get to spend my days fawning over some of peoples’ most special moments. And because I am a complete sap, when I come across images like this from Amanda Pomilla, and a film like this one from Joel Calvin, there are definitely tears involved. This couples’ vintage-inspired wedding is filled with so much heart I can almost feel it through the screen.  Join me in the gallery (and press play) to see exactly what I mean.

From the Bride…Our wedding was a beautiful Vintage Texas Hill Country themed affair, surrounded by our most intimate friends and family. It was our little creative vision that finally came to life. There were 43 guests in total this past November 18th, 2013. The date, November 18th was to signify a blessed life (18 is the Hebrew number for a blessed life).

David and I have been antiquing for 6 months leading up to the wedding buying props and items that we were drawn to. One of our favorite parts was setting it all up ourselves and watching it come together. I loved that David was just as much into it as I was (it wasn’t only about the
bride) we wanted so badly our wedding to reflect us and who we are and I think we nailed it. We were out there just hours before the ceremony started putting our last minute touches on everything, some of my favorite moments!

Roses were an easy decision for me as “Rose” is both mine and my sisters middle name as well as my parents wedding song, “The Rose”. Not only are they one of the most romantic flowers, they also have the highest vibration and bring balance and harmony to your life. All the flowers
were also arranged by my aunt, Darcy Truehart.

My grandmother was not able to attend due to her health but she did pass down her mothers wedding dress from the late 1800s which I received at my bridal shower. I had my belt and gloves made from the dress which was very special having something of hers with me on my special day. David’s grandparents were also not able to attend but we incorporated a piece of them with his grandmothers minx fur that I wore and his grandfathers silver at our table which was from his Navy ship. There was never a discussion on the theme of our wedding, it was all about our style and having our guests feel part of our life together. There was also never discussion about a wedding planner, everything was too specific and personal to put in the hands of someone else. My father always said, if you want something done right you have to do it yourself! Of course some things you leave to the professionals, the food was one of them!

Cozy Outdoor Wedding Inspiration

Spring might be quietly knocking at our doors, but that doesn’t mean my heart beats for pretty, cold weather fêtes any less. In fact, the second I stumbled upon this amazing shoot from Loft PhotographieSouthern Social and Petal Pushers, I sort of wished it was the beginning of winter all over again…just don’t tell anyone I said that. Get comfy-cozy and join me in the gallery for soooo much more.

From Loft Photographie… We created warm wedding to encompass our favorite seasonal elements – a welcoming dinner table, cozy lounge and delightful sweets surrounded by the Texas Hill Country.

The key to any event is a superb location. We teamed up with the humble folks at Red Corral Ranch – a place your dearest 33 friends or family members will feel right at home in cozy accommodations and make a yearly tradition. We started with the inviting place settings balancing the edgy rose gold flatware with classic vintage water goblets and wine glasses on a hearty rustic farm table. The dinner table was nestled away amongst the trees only found on the ranch’s 1,100 acres by a secret footbridge.

Petal Pushers transformed the farm table with winter whites and lush greenery perfectly mastering the balance of comfort and luxury – a table encouraging guests to sit for hours sipping wine and sharing stories under the Texas sky. The Stationery Bakery hand painted gorgeous tree slices with seasonal sayings bringing comfort to the bold and modern place settings.

When creating the cozy lounge, we filled the gorgeous over-sized sofa from Bee Lavish with fury pillows and a beautiful throw to embrace the night’s chill. We included a few sweet treats from Simon Lee Bakery and champagne within arms reach to enjoy while chatting with loved ones. Also, we designed a scrumptious dessert cart matched for the season offering cake with hazelnut filling, spiced sugar cookies and decadent cake balls.

Red Corral Ranch Wedding from Matthew Johnson Studios

The color palette in this gorgeous Red Corral Ranch wedding by Matthew Johnson Studios is enough to inspire all of you out there any day of the year, but it feels even more fitting today. Why you ask? Because it’s fall perfection, and it’s like sprinkling a little style over all hallows eve. With the gorgeous (and I mean, gorgeous) florals from WOW Factor Floral Design and all the details planned to perfection by Wedding Warriors, this gallery is one inspiring place to be this Halloween. See why here.


From Matthew Johnson StudiosI think you can tell a lot of about a person, or a couple, by how they deal with unexpected events on their wedding day. That being said, Zach and Karolina showed what amazing people they are by enjoying themselves and their beautiful event even though heavy morning rains required a shift from their original outdoor ceremony plans. With the quick help of their planner, Christina Lewis of Wedding Warriors, the ceremony was moved into Red Corral Ranch’s Celebration Hall. Even though getting all the guests into the Hall was a tight squeeze, it actually made for a really nice, intimate experience.

The morning rains eventually lifted and we were able to get outside and enjoy the beautiful grounds of Red Corral Ranch. The reception at the Big Red Barn kept the fun going with great live music by Rhythm Inc. and a photo booth featuring old wooden picture frames that Zach and Karolina had collected. The classic styling of the wedding fit the couple perfectly and was a great blend of traditional with a touch of Texas Hill Country feel to it.
