Debra and Harry celebrated their spring wedding at Becker Vineyards in Stonewall, Texas. The beautiful wedding tree provided a picture-perfect spot for their sweet ceremony and then they walked through the charming fields of lavender for some romantic and naturally gorgeous shots. It was the perfect venue for this laid back couple, who first met while playing in a sand volleyball league. We love the organic-styled bouquets by Gilded Petals with large pink and orange blooms among little wildflowers, and of course Debra’s dress with a wildflower motif so fitting for a rustic vineyard wedding. Thank you Kelly Miranda Photography for sharing this wonderful wedding with us!
Harry proposed to me last July. I was about to go to California to spend a week with my family, and he mentioned he had planned a surprise so we could spend some time together before I left. He took me out on a big sailboat that the owner was steering, and popped the question when we were sitting on the front of the boat literally sailing into the sunset. I had no idea! Later that night, he took me to dinner at a place I’d wanted to try for a long time, a restaurant called Wink. He had mentioned when he asked for reservations that he would be proposing that night, so they had menus printed with our names congratulating us. It was a wonderful afternoon and evening.
For our wedding day, I was shooting for simple rustic elegance. I wanted things to feel very natural, as we were out on a vineyard that was already gorgeous, and I wanted the flowers to look as they were hand-picked from the fields, without appearing too organized or symmetric.
Most Memorable Moment:
For me, the most memorable moment was seeing my husband as I walked down the aisle. The look on his face was more beautiful than I could believe. He seemed so happy and eager. The rest of the night was lovely as well, but that was definitely the moment that took my breath away.
Advice to Future Brides:
My advice to future brides would be to relax and have fun. Once you’re there, you barely notice the cake, decorations, flowers, etc., that you so meticulously picked. All you care about is being surrounded by friends and family celebrating your love for each other! 🙂
