From Jenna McElroy's Bride... I knew I wanted my wedding to be in Austin, with beautiful hills and greenery for an outdoor ceremony. Kindred Oaks was ideal for its gorgeous archway and covered dining area - which, it turned out, we needed! Our priest, a dear family friend, had to rush the ceremony to beat the rain, and in a photo finish, the last guest just made it inside before it started pouring buckets. Fifteen minutes later and fifteen degrees colder, we started the reception and the rain disappeared!

Our story started like any other: boy meets girl, boy texts girl, girl has father interpret texts because she didn't believe boy liked her, girl's father writes texts back, and before you know it, we had a first date! Just after Eric and I met in Houston, I had a job offer lined up in Austin. I decided to turn them down and stay. A year later, Eric surprised me by proposing in front of the triceratops (my favorite dinosaur) at the Houston Museum of Natural Science! 

Eric and I wanted nothing more than to have a great party and memorable wedding. Our guests were in good spirits, our photos were beautiful, and our toasts were hilarious - especially my father's! We have a ton of great pictures from Jenna McElroy that we'll cherish forever.
