outdoor wedding ceremony

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

Have a backdating calendar and work with a reputable wedding coordinator especially if you are an ‘out of town’ bride (in which, that was me).

Honeymoon 🙂

My husband and I writing our own vows. I asked my Husband what his favorite detail was and he said: my dress
