We don’t normally start our features with desserts, but when we’re talking about a cake THIS gorgeous, exceptions must be made. It’s a work of art all it’s own, and just the beginning of this Texas affair from Emily Moise, Bows and Arrows, 31 Films, and Hyde Park Photography. They joined together to pull off a wedding dream-come-true and there’s much more in the gallery plus film waiting down below!

From Emily Moise… Meredith and Christopher were married in an afternoon ceremony atop a grand staircase in the shiny sun light in front of 300 friends and family. They had been dating for many many years so the friends and families were all very close to the couple.
Meredith describes her look as the Kate Spade/Wildflower wedding with an obsession for everything personalized with a monogram or something meaningful to their families or themselves as a couple.
They gave out custom decks of cards with the watercolor pattern from their invitation since they always play hearts and spades with their families. They had two linen cloths from her grandmother’s wedding on the guest book table with old family photos displayed on top and the other was placed on the cake table. The guest book itself was 2 planks of wood that a family friend would later make into a bench for their future home’s backyard. Facts about the couple we displayed on cocktail napkins, custom cornhole yard game, horseshoes, monogrammed wine barrels used at the special wine bar, and many many more.

I’m just going to come right out and say it, I love this wedding with all my being. My love affair happened the moment I laid eye on the gorgeous images from Cory Ryan Photography and then just kept growing stronger and stronger with every gorgeous detail. It’s all around lovely, and you can see just what I am gushing about right here.

From Cory Ryan Photography…Leia and Michael’s swoon-worthy wedding took place in Horseshoe Bay, TX at the lovely ESCONDIDO GOLF & LAKE CLUB. Thanks to the team at LIV BY DESIGNS, who took care of all the special details and brought together a gorgeous day that the families will always remember. As Leia & her father walked down the grand staircase of the Great House, Michael wiped away a single tear and smiled the biggest smile I’ve ever seen. After their ceremony overlooking the green, everyone moved over to La Hacienda to celebrate. A photo booth by SAY CHEESE, an awesome band from Dallas called NEW GROUND, and a custom cigar rolling station from BOBALU CIGAR CO. were just a few of the special touches for the guests. In addition to the gorgeous cake (with gluten-free layer for the bride!) from SIMON LEE BAKERY, this southern girl could’t help but appreciate the jars of banana pudding as well! YUM! And the final exclamation point to the reception was when Michael hopped on stage with the band and belted out his own song – eventually grabbing Leia onto the stage for some fun! As the couples getaway car departed, the couple was surprised with an awesome fireworks display along the sides of the road. Wow, talk about an exit!!!
