Beautiful June bride Holley gives us the scoop on her fun and elegant Texas wedding. Check out the her WeddingMix video to see everything from her sweet chapel ceremony to her romantic reception on a ranch!
My wedding day turned out great. The day started with brunch and mimosas with all my bridesmaids, aunts, cousins, and grandmothers at this lovely tea room called Adelea’s on Main in Salado. After brunch we headed over to Tenroc where we had hair and makeup. It was so fun hanging out with all my girls getting ready.
The centerpieces were a mix of lanterns, bottles, paper airplanes, vases of soft pink and white flowers and lots of candles. My husband is a pilot so we incorporated planes here and there. The cake topper was a Lear Jet with our names in it. His cuff links were airplane propellers. The table numbers and programs had custom monograms with our names and paper airplanes. etc.
The theme was shabby chic and a lot of lace. My dress was an ivory lace Allure gown and wore an ivory lace bolero for the ceremony. My bridesmaids all chose different long, blush dresses from Bella Bridesmaid.
After the ceremony my husband and I left the chapel in his great grandfather 1960 Ford pick up truck and headed to the reception at Tenroc Ranch. The guests had cocktails on the lawn. There were lawn games and a giant hay bale couch. A canopy of lights on the lawn glowed all night long.
I had three different cakes and chocolate bedazzled bon bons. My groom doesn’t like cake. He had Aunt Nancy’s peach cobbler as a grooms cake.
We shared our first dance with “the matchmakers.” My groom and I started the dance and then the DJ asked my college roommate and her husband to join in. It was a lot of fun.
The DJ was great. We danced and had a great time. We changed clothes when the limo arrived to to take us to DFW. We left with a mess of bird seed in our hair. Great night.
