Having meticulously planned plenty of past weddings, our team can attest that it takes a lot to get to that end result. So, when I see a celebration like this one, jam-packed with layers of personalized details, I not only see the love, but feel every curated, every carefully crafted moment. Thanks to the uber-talented planner, Sarah Whisenant, who made all the beauty below come to life. Prepare to ooh and aah over the heavenly arrangements of brightly colored blooms in orange, purple, and deep pink tones. Nestled in our beautiful countryside landscape just finishing the last turn to autumn, the celebrations made every effort to pay tribute to the natural surroundings, from the carefully selected menu to the elaborate decor. The reception barn featured a romantic cascade of lush greenery and hanging pops of floral in a gradient of colours, while the tables were covered with a variety of gorgeous glass details to transform the space into an enchanting and romantic ambiance. The overall effect was both sophisticated and magical. Top it all off with a gown change before the reception begins, plenty of personalized pops in the decor and there you have it - we couldn't be more in love with this blog feature. With Nyk + Cali behind the lens, it was a truly special celebration and one that I promise you'll want to cozy up to!
the first look :: From the balloons and the bridal party peering from the balcony to the cutest four-legged photo bomber we've ever seen. There's so much to love about Peyton + Max's first look, take a peek below!
Their love story as told by the Bride ::
"Max and I met in the summer of 2016 through mutual friends. I was on summer break from Texas Christian University and amid a sales and marketing internship. Max was about to start Undergraduate Pilot Training for the Airforce. Max was living in Del Rio, TX and I was living in Fort Worth, TX. The weekend we met consisted of talking poolside, floating the Frio River with friends, and bonding over our mutual love for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Throughout the summer Max and I started dating long-distance, trying to see each other as often as possible. After the summer passed, we continued to date and travel across the state of Texas to see each other. We grew closer and closer together and the rest is history!"
pavilion styling and nuptials ::
One of Sarah's favorite elements from the reception styling were the gorgeous table place settings. A stunning display of a dusy color palette paired with sophisticated dining staples, floating votives, marble boxes, crystal , and colorful floral design atop silver chiffon linens created a fresh take on a usually moody, romantic ambiance. And I haven't even mentioned the personalized details like the acrylic signage placed throughout or the place-card scrolls found peeking over the rim of each champagne flute.
A quick dress change before fireworks fell over their first dance as Mr. and Mrs.
