 Jessica and Ruben were married at Vista West Ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas on April 20. “When we visited Vista West Ranch, it was the perfect one-stop-shop venue which captured the rolling hill country, and offered intimate overnight accommodations for our guests,” Jessica said. “Plus, what better place than a ranch to get married in Texas?” The bride wore a strapless ball gown with a ruffled skirt, accessorized with a floor-length veil and jeweled sash, while the groom wore a dark gray three-piece suit, accessorized with a solid tie. “At the time of the wedding, I was living in California,” she said. “I carried-on my wedding dress with me on the plane – in a big pink gown bag, and my petticoat enclosed! I was worried about TSA, but instead was greeted with plenty of friendly faces and well-wishes!” Surprisingly, there were no bridesmaids and groomsmen. “We didn’t have a bridal party, we wanted it to be truly our day,” Jessica said. “It ended up being much less stress than having to coordinate suits and bridesmaids dresses!” The ceremony took place underneath an altar decorated with baby’s breath with Jessica’s brother-in-law officiating. “I wanted a rustic  wedding, and had envisioned a big fun gathering of close family and friends,” Jessica said. “I wanted people to feel comfortable and at-home.” The reception was held inside the barn. Tables were decorated with burlap runners, wooden drawer centerpieces, mason jars, and votive candles. Grapevine balls hung from the ceiling too! Dinner and dancing began with traditional Southern fare, and the newlyweds performing “So Far Gone” by Thousand Foot Crutch. Remember to “let go of the details and roll with the surprises that will come up on the big day!,” she said. At the end of the night, a mini cake was cut and all 50 guests enjoyed a make-your-own sundae bar, complete with every type of topping imaginable. See the full board here.
