Lindsay & Scott
How did you meet? Scott and I met the first day I moved to Texas from Denver, Colorado. My friends took me over to his house to hang out and we hit it off and have been together ever since.
Tell us about the proposal. We are both very spiritual and we meditate together every morning. One morning while we were meditating, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
What inspired the design or theme of your wedding day? For the theme, I was inspired by my new life in Texas, and wanted to have a Texas rustic vibe with a touch of elegance. Since it was a fall wedding, I chose dark, jewel tones for my color palette.
Why did you choose the venue and vendors you did? We chose our venue because it was a beautiful ranch and had all the details I was looking for to match our theme. It was so beautiful and had an authentic Texas vibe. It also had a beautiful bridal suite and rehearsal dinner spot on the property, which really sold us on the spot. Our wedding planner, Michelle Turman with Haute Weddings, recommended our vendors. All of the vendors were able to provide exactly what we were looking for and went above and beyond to cater to our requests.
What were some of the most unique elements of your wedding? Since my family is from Boston and has never experienced Texas before, I wanted to make sure they had an authentic Texas experience at our wedding. The venue is a working ranch, so there were many exotic animals running throughout the property, which made it very unique. It also has a beautiful view of the hill country. Our reception took place in their elegant barn, which went perfectly with our theme. My husband's company traps and sells exotic deer and other hoof stock, so I wanted to incorporate a lot of antlers in the decor to show his personality. Instead of a groom’s cake, we had mini, buttermilk pies and mason jars of banana pudding, which were a big hit. As wedding favors, we gave our guests mason jars filled with local hill country honey, which was harvested and extracted by our good friend, Cody Leicht.
Did anything about your wedding exceed your expectations? All of our vendors were amazing and they fulfilled all of our custom requests perfectly. Our wedding planner went above and beyond for us throughout the whole planning process and made sure everything ran perfectly on the big day. Snap Chic Photography captured every moment perfectly and provided us with all of our beautiful photos the very next day, which was incredible.
