It was such a pleasure and privilege to coordinate Lauren & Billy’s wedding in April at Gabriel Springs in Georgetown, TX. Lauren and Billy are such a fun couple so obviously in love! Their wedding was filled with good food, good drinks, dancing, and laughter. Here is how Lauren describes her inspiration for her wedding:
William and Lauren’s wedding was held in the Texas hill country at Gabriel Springs in Georgetown Texas. It’s was a spring wedding, held on April 4, 2013. The inspiration was simply Texas chic. Everything featured at the wedding were local brands. They chose a neutral color palette with vintage touches, burlap, lace, DIY and a little bit of flare. The bride was inspired mostly by Pinterest to make “Happily Ever after” signs, directional sign with the bride and grooms cities they grew up in and where the families were coming in from, lace runners, a DIY “Here comes your girl” sign carried by junior bridesmaids and homemade lawn games (bag toss and horse shoes) There were vintage coke bottles and crates the couple found that were used as decoration in the ceremony and reception. The tables were a mixture of alternating burlap and lace overlays topped with cedar coins cut for the couple, wild assortments of garden rose, stock, baby’s breath and various other flowers in antique tea pots, milk bottles, bud vases and lanterns. The couple salvaged marquee letters and the groom made a lighted LOVE sign for the reception background. Some of the personal touches included the couples rings carried out on a family bible that had belonged to the grooms great grandfather, a guitar signed by guests instead of a guest book, and exchanging cowboy boots as wedding gifts to each other to have the first dance in. The bridesmaids all wore mismatched dresses paired with cowboy boots, and the groomsmen wore tan suit pants and white kicks, after the grooms personal style. The bride wore a Jim Hjelm trumpet gown and the groom was in a slim fit Express mens suit. They served texas beer, Lonestar and ShinerBock assortments, Llano wine, local Uncle Billys BBQ, lemonade and cucumber water and Sweet Treets cupcakes in flavors 24 carrot, strawberry champagne and roasted banana and honey.
