Colorful Boho Glam Texas Hill Country Wedding

I can’t seem to pinpoint the words to describe how much I adore this sweet day from Brett Heidebrecht. Really, the imagery speaks for itself, and if you’re a color-loving bride (or groom!), drawn to that boho glam goodness, I guarantee you’ll be head over heels in love, just like me. From the artful bouquet by Sweet Magnolia Floral to the decked out tent, it’s the stuff wedding dreams are made of.

From the Bride… I have so many wonderful memories of Fredericksburg as much of my family lives there. Spring in the Hill Country is always so beautiful, I had always dreamed of being married there. When Tom and I began to plan our wedding, Fredericksburg provided the perfect destination, close enough to home to allow friends and family to be part of the celebration.

We knew immediately after looking at The Lodge Event center it would be the perfect wedding venue for us. Tucked away in the hills outside of Fredericksburg, it offered the intimate setting we were looking for. Along with a perfect ceremony site, we were able to have our bridal party and family stay in their cottages on site there too. It gave us the whole week-end to visit and celebrate with everyone there with us.

Jasper Eisenberg, our wedding planner and Ashlyn Hobbs, our floral designer both understood my vision of “boho-glam” perfectly and ran with it. When rain moved our wedding ceremony under the tent, Jasper quickly created a beautiful circular seating arrangement for our 250 guests under the tent. Standing underneath the beautiful floral chandelier in the Sperry tent, surrounded by our family and friends made it the perfect boho inspired setting. It was even more special as our family friend Gaines West performed the ceremony reflecting our commitment to God and to each other.

Elegant Park City Wedding

Plain and simple, I want to be this Bride’s best friend. Trust me, you will too after reading about her journey down the aisle. For when a close friend was diagnosed with cancer, she gifted them her wedding budget with a heart full of love. Using what funds remained, she enlisted passionate artistic vendors to do what they do best, and boy did they ever. Bella Cosa by D’Arcy Benincosa captured it all here.

From the beautiful Bride… I had a wedding budget, and then a dear friend’s daughter got sick with cancer. I decided to give most of the money to her, rent out the venue, and see what I could have done with my wedding via trade. This taught me a profound experience about the people in my life.

First, the love that abounded around me as I planned my wedding wasn’t of this world, not even close. Second, the vendors… ok scratch that, passionate artists, who trusted and helped me with my vision deserve every bit of recognition and praise that I can possibly give them. If you were to ask me, statues should be erected in their honor. And Third, I want other girls out there to know that you can have the day of your dreams no matter the budget. Your wedding day can be uniquely yours by using your own two hands and a heart full of love. You don’t have to impress anyone. You can be yourself and it will be all the better.

We picked the Washington School House Hotel as the venue because we could all stay there and because it left us speechless. We had 36 guests because those 36 people were an integral part of our journeys. We had foxes on our invitations because my new last name was to be Fox and foxes are kickass. I didn’t have colors and I didn’t pick my bridesmaids dresses. I had vintage china because it reminded me of growing up in a Victorian home and I told my floral designer to have fun and to do whatever she wanted. I didn’t give my photographer a shot list and I told my hair and makeup artist to make me look like a babe. We had a plated dinner with gourmet delights from our favorite food truck and I told my DJ to create one epic party. My only instruction to everyone was to dress well, have a blast and be present with us for our wedding day. I wasn’t about micromanaging, I was about letting people do what they do best.

Denver Rowboat Engagement Session

If you’re looking for a recipe for dreamy engagement photos, look no further than this sweet love sesh from Tamara Gruner Photography—a floral adorned rowboat floating two cuties through Denver City Park, complete with a champagne toast, floppy hat and cherry blossoms dotting the shoreline. Adorable? We’d say so. See it all here in the full gallery!

From Tamara Gruner PhotographyThe delicate waves of the lake created the rhythm. The blossoming trees on a spring evening provided the light. This was a picture perfect setting for our couple to enjoy their moment before the big day. The soon-to-be-bride along with her beau enjoyed a gentle row down the waters in their charming boat adorned with flowers. Sipping a glass of champagne, exchange words, they dreamed about their lives ahead. It was simply a beautiful day!

Coming Home-An Elegant Backyard Wedding

I think that Father of the Bride changed weddings for all of us. It made a backyard wedding not only feel completely and utterly chic, it made us all want one. Like really, really bad. Because there is something so undeniably beautiful about taking your vows in the home where you played catch, toasting your love in the yard where you found family. Well, my friends, if Father of the Bride wasn’t enough, this backyard affair will most certainly have you ditching your plans. With photographs from Ace & Whim, this is the very definition of Homegrown Elegance. More here!

From Ace & WhimThere was one consistent feeling throughout the entire day of Mackenzie and Dylan’s wedding day. Peace. That feeling you only get when you go home. Back to the home you grew up in. Getting ready in the same room on your wedding day, that you got ready in for high school prom. Stopping in the hallway to look at the same mirror, you had looked at so many times through the years, but today was different. Today you’re a bride. Today, there is a man at the bottom of the staircase that is anxious to see you and hold you, because he knows, that today, you will become his wife.

As Mackenzie made her way down the spiral staircase to Dylan, her eyes lit up with joy. I am sure she had walked down those stairs of her childhood home, thousands of times, but today was so special. As she reached the bottom and they held onto one another, Mackenzie’s parents watched in the distance. Their little girl was getting married.

Dylan and Mackenzie were surrounded by friends and family as they said their vows under the gazebo in her parents backyard. The entire day had come together so beautifully. Florals and garland draped in all the right places. Bistro lights hung in anticipation for the party to come. Friends and family from across the country, gathered to witness this amazing day with the couple. The day could not have been more perfect for Mackenzie and Dylan.

(The green convertible used in the images was built by Dylan and his dad.)
