From the Bride... Being from Texas, I couldn’t have thought of a more perfect place to get married then a barn out in the open country. I looked at a few venues before this one but nothing quite struck my eye like the White Sparrow Barn. The whimsical feel that the natural wood floors and whitewashed walls made it impossible for both my husband and I to turn down. I knew the open field surrounded by oak trees would give me the nature driven ceremony that I had imagined and the rustic details of the barn would promise me a fairytale reception.

I wanted my flowers to stand out so with the help of Lindsey, my planner, I chose to use a pop of black in my arrangements as a way to make the event unique and add some formality to it. Our flowers were a garden style mix of silver dollar eucalyptus, cafe au last dahlias, burgundy ranunculus, white anemones, and patience garden roses. Frou Frou chic ribbon was added onto my bouquet for a more romantic touch. The head table was lined with mixed greens and pops of big blooms. I wanted each floral piece to contain loose greens with big blooms because I knew it would accent the beautiful ceremony space.

My dress I knew had to be one of a kind. I shopped for months to find something unique enough to stand out to me. After multiple trips to different bridal stores I fell into the arms of the Bridal Boutique in Lewisville, TX. The dress was featured in the store and my eyes were immediately drawn to the unique lace. There was something bold yet timeless about it and I knew it was the one before I even had the chance to put it on. On top of that I knew the dress was made by the stores private line therefore it wasn’t going to be accessible to many making it even more special.

The day of the wedding was everything Rhett and I could have imagined and more. We couldn’t have asked for things to go more perfect than they did. We wanted our guests to feel our love and have the best night of their lives and we think we did just that. It was a dream come true.
