Texas Hill Country Wedding
Today’s wedding comes from the beautiful Texas Hill Country! The bride and groom did of beautiful job of keeping their outdoor wedding sophisticated and seasonal while incorporating the culture of Texas. I love the simplicity of their ceremony venue and the reception decor is rustic and stylish. And how darling is their dessert bar with the monogrammed napkins and mini pecan pies? Enjoy this wedding from the Lone Star State! xoxo, Jessica
