Lilac and Ivory Wedding on Lake Travis by Malleret Designs

For Kristi and Will, it was love at first swipe. After matching on Hinge, the couple met for their first date on October 1, 2015 at West Alabama Ice House. As Kristi and Will started dating, she fell in love with his kindness and he adored her sense of humor. Then, four years after they met—and in the exact spot in the parking lot where they first saw each other—Will asked Kristi to marry him. Just over a year later, the couple tied the knot during this charming lilac and ivory wedding.

Kristi and Will’s ceremony was so romantic! Before the couple’s 50 closest family and friends joined them on beautiful Lake Travis in Austin, Texas for the waterfront nuptials, Will fell head over heels for his soon-to-be bride all over again during the first look. Kristi’s bridal style was so elegant with a half updo full of curls, her gorgeous lace wedding dress, and her lush, full bouquet by Malleret Designs! The bridal bouquet was stunning, featuring ivory and mauve roses with vibrant pops of lilac amid trendy eucalyptus sprigs.

What sprouted as a high school romance blossomed into Mary Margaret and Daniel’s quintessential love story and beautiful wedding. In their junior year of high school, Daniel asked Mary Margaret to attend a pool party together with mutual friends. A few years later, Daniel rented the patio at Mary Margaret’s favorite restaurant for just the two of them and popped the question. Afterward, an intimate celebratory dinner, they joined their families who were waiting inside at the bar. “It was the best night ever!” explained Mary Margaret. The best day ever? The big one, of course!

The couple married at the ornate Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston. Traditional white wedding floral arrangements bursting with roses and candle-lit lanterns lined the aisle. Mary Margaret carried her something borrowed—her mother’s Rosary Beads—wrapped around her white rose bouquet. But the bride’s favorite floral arrangement cascaded from the ceiling at the reception.
