Hannah and Cole exchanged vows under a massive oak tree on a family farm in Georgetown, Texas. The tree was adorned with hanging flowers, lanterns, and a petal-filled aisle straight out of a fairy tale! Loaded with handmade details, this wedding is rustic yet chic and elegant. Their sweet pup was their “flower girl” and even wore a collar of purple flowers! Bridesmaids wore pale blush gowns and carried gorgeous bouquet in shades of pink, honey-orange, and green – versions of Hannah’s own bouquet. Vintage furniture, rustic signs, and a vintage cherry red truck played a big part in their décor for the day. A sparkler send-off was a fun way for all to end the night.

From the Bride…
Before the Ring:
Cole and I met on a mission trip in high school with our church. From the moment I met Cole, I knew that I was going to marry him. He was so sweet and genuine. He was funny, nice, a great person to be around, and he treated me so well and that’s what I loved about him.
What is your proposal story?
May 2015 we went on a family trip with his family to Turks and Caicos. I had already knew that we were going to be taking family pictures this week, so I thought he was going to propose to me during our photo session. The day before we went to take family pictures, we went horseback riding in the ocean. His mom kept saying “We should look really cute today!” and I didn’t think anything about it. I just decided to wear workout clothes because I knew we were going to be hot and getting wet from the ocean. The guide told us that we were going to have to take the long way because there was another big group that was going to be down at the water the same time we were. We got into the water and the guide was trying to get my horse closer to the front because he was going pretty low. Once I got up to the front, the guide told me that we had to get out of the water because they had a deal with this home owner not to take the horses through the water at that spot so we started to head towards the shore. Once we got to the shore and rode along here for a little while, the guide was talking to me and then she told me, “Hannah you might want to look over to your left.” So I did and in the sand was written “Hannah will you marry me?” Cole got off of his horse and got down on one knee and asked me to marry him and of course I said yes! I love our proposal story. It will always hold a special place in my heart. It was the best day of my life, besides getting married of course!
Inspiration/details of the wedding day:
Cole and I both love being outdoors so we picked this setting for our wedding. I used Pinterest and The Knot for some of my inspiration. Most of the details that day were ideas my mom had come up with. We did a lot of DIY with the help of many friends to help make our day unique to us. We were so lucky to have family and friends in our lives to help make it all possible. Our vendors were amazing and so easy to work with. They helped with the details and the inspiration that we will never forget!
Most memorable moment/s?
The whole day was very memorable to me. I loved that we were able to have our dog Daisy in our wedding! I was able to watch her from a distance walk down the aisle and it made me so happy! From waking up that day to going to bed that night, I loved literally everything about my wedding day. All of our personal details and touches made that day very memorable.
