Texas weddings rock. Plain and simple. But when you throw in some beautiful bridesmaids in boots, a bundle of wonderful vendors and a bride and groom that really know a thing or two about fabulous parties, they rock and then some. Case in point? This darling day captured by Red Rogue Photography, a fabulous rustic meets classic Gabriel Springs affair with more than its fair share of pretty.

From Red Rogue Photography… William and Lauren’s wedding was held in the Texas Hill Country at Gabriel Springs in Georgetown, Texas. It was a spring wedding, held on April 4, 2013. The inspiration was simply Texas chic. Everything featured at the wedding were local brands. They chose a neutral color palette with vintage touches, burlap, lace, DIY and a little bit of flare. The bride was inspired mostly by Pinterest to make “Happily Ever After” signs, directional signs with the bride and groom’s cities they grew up in and where the families were coming in from, lace runners, a DIY “Here Comes Your Girl” sign carried by junior bridesmaids and homemade lawn games (bag toss and horse shoes). There were vintage coke bottles and crates the couple found that were used as decoration in the ceremony and reception. The tables were a mixture of alternating burlap and lace overlays topped with cedar coins cut for the couple, wild assortments of garden rose, stock, baby’s breath and various other flowers in antique tea pots, milk bottles, bud vases and lanterns. The couple salvaged marquee letters and the groom made a lighted LOVE sign for the reception background.
Some of the personal touches included the couples rings carried out on a family bible that had belonged to the groom’s great grandfather, a guitar signed by guests instead of a guest book, and exchanging cowboy boots as wedding gifts to each other to have the first dance in. The bridesmaids all wore mismatched dresses paired with cowboy boots, and the groomsmen wore tan suit pants and white kicks, after the grooms personal style. The bride wore a Jim Hjelm trumpet gown and the groom was in a slim fit Express mens suit. They served texas beer, Lonestar and ShinerBock assortments, Llano wine, local Uncle Billys BBQ, lemonade and cucumber water and Sweet Treets cupcakes in flavors 24 carrot, strawberry champagne and roasted banana and honey.
From Vintage&Lace… This was such a fun, energetic, creative couple to work with! Lauren had a clear vision for her wedding day style which made implementing the details a breeze. They took everything in stride, even two of the groomsmen breaking down on their way from the airport and having to call a taxi which delayed starting the ceremony, and definitely made the day about having a great time with family and friends. It was a celebration of life and love!
