Ashleigh and Christopher were married at Hickory Street Annex in Dallas, Tx. “We loved the rustic look with all the windows overlooking the Dallas skyline,” Ashleigh said. “The venue gave us a lot of DIY opportunities, which was something else we were looking for too.” Prior to the ceremony, the couple opted for a first look. Ashleigh walked up behind Christopher only to surprise him in her sweetheart lace mermaid wedding gown, accessorized with a bright bouquet of pink dahlias, peonies, and succulents. “It gave us alone time, and a moment to get all the jitters out,” she said. Aisle markers donned biblical virtues such as “love never fails,” while centerpieces sat atop burlap table runners. The best advice, according to the bride? “Be sure to take a moment during the reception and take a mental picture of everything — guests, decor, weather, and food!”

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

My husband is very outdoorsy.  We’ve been to so many weddings in Houston that we were ready for something fun and different.  I had seen four other venues before this one, and I just knew when I saw it that was the perfect amount of rustic for my husband, and the perfect amount of chic for me!

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My mom did so many DIY projects.  All of the table decor was done by her. We collected old bottles, and she took apart all my old jewelry and decorated bottles and vases and votives.  It was so enchanting.  She worked so hard and was so good at it.  So, I loved all the things my mom made.  I also loved the dance my friends and bridesmaid’s did.  It was a surprise to everyone. It was a choreographed dance done after the garter toss to get the party started! And the last thing that was my favorite was of course saying my vows to my husband.  During the ceremony there were gunshots in the distance and my nephew (5-year-old ring bearer) yelled, “Gunshots!!!” at the top of his lungs.

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding you can’t stop thinking about. 

Walking into the venue after we got married, took pictures, and seeing everyone smiling at us as we were walking in. It was just perfect. Took my breath away.  My coordinator and HEB flowers and RTC Floristry did such a fantastic job decorating and bringing the exact feel of what I wanted my wedding to be like.

Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I was looking for a rustic but elegant look and thought Gabriel Springs was perfect for this.  I also loved the openness of the venue, and how all guests would be in one room. 

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Beautiful florals 

2. Vintage lace wedding gown 

3. Bridesmaids’ Kendra Scott earrings that really made my color scheme pop! 

3. Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about. 

The one moment I can’t stop thinking about is walking down the aisle to the man of my dreams and seeing the look in his face.  It made everything feel so right.

Shae & Jon

Weatherford, Texas

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It felt like a secret garden- so beautiful and intimate. It was important to me that our guests felt special (because each one of them is so special to us) and I knew they would feel that way in the garden.  

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. My dress!
  2. The yellow topiaries
  3. The record on the groom’s cake

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Don’t just focus on the wedding. Focus on the marriage too. The wedding lasts for just a few hours and is only the beginning of forever.  Yes, the wedding details are important, but a lifetime of companionship is that much more important. Prepare emotionally, spiritually, financially, mentally and any other way to make sure everyday of forever is just as joyous and an equally exciting celebration of life as your wedding.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Only one? It was all such a magical dream that still seems like there is no way it was real. Putting on my dress, seeing Jon, walking down the aisle, taking millions of pictures, dancing in the garden, and talking to so many friends…I never want to forget a single detail of the most magical day when I promised to love my best friend forever.

Q & A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The horse barn. I had said from the very beginning that I wanted to get married in a barn and it was the perfect combination of rustic elegance meets country. 

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My dress, it was the first one I tried on

The tree we were married under was full of wonderful fall colors

A last-minute sign that my dad and Richard made for the entrance to our venue.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Be flexible. No matter how much you plan, something will always go wrong but just embrace it.  

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

This is a tough one. it would have to be between when I saw my husband for the first time during our sneak peek or listening to all the toasts made by sweet friends and family. It meant the world to us to have all the ones we hold close to our hearts at our wedding.
