Getting Ready at a Gorgeous Venue
The couple chose a gorgeous location for a wedding. The rustic venue, The House on the Hill in Austin, Texas, was the perfect place for them to celebrate their love.
Hand lettered signs showed the guests where all the fun events were going to take place.
The gorgeous balcony overlooked stunning views.
The outdoor ceremony was beautiful as well. Stacked stone and a canopy of trees made for the perfect altar to exchange vows.
The bride’s gown had long sleeves and was crafted from gorgeous lace. Her bridesmaids sparkled by her side with fur jackets to keep them warm yet stylish.
After they exchanged letters while they got ready, they made their way to each other for a first look.
The groom made his way upstairs to see his bride for the first time in her wedding attire.
The bride felt an overwhelming feeling of love from her groom during their first look, it was certainly one of her most favorite memories from their day.
The Sweet Ceremony
The ceremony was extra special to this bride because her brother was the officiant.
The flowers were done in gorgeous deep reds, pinks and greens, making for beautiful bouquets for the bride and her bridesmaids to walk down the aisle with.
Rose gold gowns with faux fur shawls paired perfectly with the burgundy ties and gray suits for the guys.
The flower girls looked adorable with their lace gowns and sweet headbands. They tossed red and white flower petals as they walked down the aisle.
The bride made her entrance from a rustic installation complete with wood frames, flowers, and velvet drapery.
Her brother led a wonderful ceremony as the bride and groom said their ‘I dos’.
Special DIY Wedding Details
The bride and groom’s ultimate goal was to share their personalities through their decor, so they created many of the pieces themselves. Through the help of friends and family, these projects brought everyone closer together and forged new bonds that will last a lifetime.
The couple encouraged their guests to grab a glass, write their name on it, and use it for the night. Their DIY glass display worked perfectly for this idea!
They decorated a room divider with photos from throughout their relationship. It was a great way for guests to see how they have grown together over the years.
Beautiful centerpieces held sparklers for guests to light at their special send off.
The bride and groom treated their guests to kegs and bottles of their favorite beers.
The simple cake was frosted in chocolate and topped with a greenery and gold cake topper.
Instead of a traditional cake to serve the guests, they picked a few fun flavors of cupcakes for guests to enjoy.
The night ended with a sparkling sendoff and a new life full of love to look forward to.
