Kacie and Daniel were married at Cedar Bend Events in Austin, Tx. on November 23. The bride opted for a more rustic bridal look, donning a chiffon halter gown and soft wavy hair. She carried a bright bouquet of dahlias, peonies, veronica, tulips, and ferns.The groom wore a vested gray suit with a green neck tie. The ceremony took place outside in front of a barnwood backdrop, and guests sat and looked on in white folding chairs featuring wildflower aisle markers. The altar featured a vintage hanging window and picnic table draped in lace. “We knew we wanted to have the ceremony outside in a beautiful setting, and our main priority was keeping things comfortable and having a lot of fun!” Kacie said of the venue. A reception followed where guests signed a guest book located on a table decorated with framed quotes, books, a vintage watering can, and candles. “Our wedding was primarily a way to have a great time with friends and family,” Kacie said of the occasion. Aside from dancing, guests participated in lawn games such as croquet, hula hoops, and sack races. Tables were covered in gold chevron linens and centerpieces of roses, stock, veronica, and baby’s breath arranged in glass jars and displayed atop tree slices. “We always referred to our wedding, as the ‘Big Day,’ allowing us to focus on the celebration,” Kacie said. Guests enjoyed dinner and indulged in a variety of desserts including a naked cake, lemon rosemary shortbread cookies, and brownie bites! Kacie’s best advice? “Put great thought into your guest list, so that you can spend time with every loved one on your big day.” See the full board here.

Beth and Jon were married at Mint Springs Farm in Nolensville, Tenn. followed by a reception at Parthenon Grille in Murfreesboro, Tenn. on October 16. The bride stunned in a lace and organza fit-n-flare gown featuring a lace illusion bateau neckline and a crystal belt. She donned her hair in a curly partial updo underneath her waist-length veil. She carried a soft ivory and blush bouquet of roses, hydrangeas, stock, and seeded eucalyptus. Her ‘maids opted for fitted strapless satin dresses in a champagne hue. The groom looked dapper in a dark suit and striped neck tie. “My approach was simple: focus on the day, our surroundings, our beautiful boys, our friends and awesome family,” Beth said of her inspiration. The ceremony decor included rustic wreaths made of grapevine, eucalyptus, waxflower, roses, and ribbon. The pair exchanged vows in a wooden chapel in front of large open windows revealing sweeping views of rolling hills. An intimate reception followed at a nearby restaurant where guests looked to a repurposed window pane to find their seats. Friends and family members sat at tables with white linens and burlap table runners. “I chose simple color schemes and let nature do the rest,” Beth said of the decor. Centerpieces featured hydrangeas in wooden boxes and laser-cut wooden table numbers. Guests were given the choice between steak, chicken, and fish for dinner. They were also given personalized pink and blue koozies as favors. “Rather being tucked away in a corner, I decided we would design the room around the cake..the cake was the focal point sitting in the middle on the room,” Beth said. The three tier white fondant cake was topped with blush and ivory flowers. Beth’s planning advice? “Start by making a list of the things that are most important to you and your fiance.” See the full board here.
