Tami Winn Events planned the sweet couple’s dream wedding day to perfection, leaving no detail left unturned, while Stephanie Brazzle Photography was there to capture every breathtaking moment. Head on over to the full gallery of images to see all the inspiration, including some of the most beautiful baby blue bridesmaids dresses we’ve ever seen.
From the Bride… Kyle and I met 2 ½ years ago at Texas A&M University. He was finishing up his last semester of college, and I was a junior. We were in the same class together, and Kyle asked if I would be his partner for a group project after the professor said “Pick someone you don’t know very well.” At the end of the semester he asked me to his last date party of college. I did not think much of it since he was graduating, but after a summer spent a part because of my internship in New York City, we were head over heels for each other. Kyle is from Austin and moved back to his hometown after he graduated.
It was not until last October (2017) that we were in the same city and got engaged all in the same month! Picking where we wanted the wedding to be was an easy decision. We were going to make Fort Worth our home together, and TX Whiskey is a Fort Worth staple. We got to tour their new venue, Whiskey Ranch, before it even opened. It was built on a beautiful golf course that overlooked Fort Worth. The downtown skyline made it perfect for a dreamy reception. The owners even came out to greet us while we were there, and we just knew it would be special to showcase such a unique place as one of their first weddings! I had always pictured myself getting married in a silk white tent, and dancing underneath the stars.
When we booked our venue for July, I wanted to capture that classic, midsummer night’s dream look. This inspiration was reflected in our décor, from the flowers to the linens to the stage and bar facades. The streaming crystals and cascading greenery were more than anything I could imagine! I wanted to create an atmosphere that overflowed with romance while keeping it botanical and timeless. There were also a couple elements we added because it was important to us for our guests to have a blast! We decided to add a couple pops of gold glitter for the champagne wall and dance floor. We brought in a liquid nitrogen ice cream machine so people could have boozy refreshments and cool off from the heat, and we were also really intentional about picking a fantastic band. At the end of the night, we brought in light up cowboy hats and honey butter chicken biscuits made by our amazing caterer. The dance floor was full of people and energy the entire night! One of the most fun appointments was designing the groom’s cake. I wanted it to reflect who Kyle was as a person, so I got a little crazy with it. Kyle is the perfect combination of a musician who loves all thing sports and food. From the sushi to the stickers on the guitar case, all of the 3D objects on the cake were representations of things Kyle loves. We even included an Italian flag because we traveled together to Italy with his family, and that was where he told me he loved me for the very first time.
Shopping for my wedding dress was really special for me! Before I even met Kyle, I had spotted a Hayley Paige ad in a wedding magazine with a dress that I could not get out of my head. Once I got engaged, I had a wonderful day of dress shopping with my sister, mom, and bridesmaids, but as soon as I tried that dress on for the first time I realized I had always known this would be my dress I would wear on my wedding day. It was also special because I got to wear the veil that my great grandmother had made for my sister – in – law when she married my brother. My sister also got to wear it for her wedding. We were all very close to her, so it meant so much to have a piece of my great grandmother with me that day. My wedding planner had the great idea of incorporating the lace from my dress into details of the wedding too. The wedding invitation, the cake, and bar facades were all designed to reflect my wedding dress! When the wedding day came it was a complete dream. I still look back and wish I could relive every second. The best moments were seeing the little details that probably no one else noticed come alive. From Kyle singing and recording our first dance song to writing our own vows, for us it was about celebrating our journey that brought us to this day. I will never forget the many appointments with my mom, the dance lessons with my dad, and planning those minute but meaningful details, such as picking out scripture readings with Kyle. Looking back on the day, I hope our wedding was a testament of what a loving God we have; and I hope it was a celebration-to-be-remembered for those who poured their time and energy into helping Kyle and me become the couple we are today.
