Lindsey and her groom David wanted a rustic, yet elegant outdoor wedding that combined their Texan roots and laid-back style. “I wanted candles and flowers, and lots of them,” says Lindsey. “I wanted a night that not only represented and honored David and I, but our families and friends as well,” she adds. Soft lighting, wooden accents, hints of burlap and a soft color palette made Lindsey and David’s vision of a night underneath-the-stars come to life. We fell in love with their wedding and are sure you will, too. Thanks Akil Bennett for the beautiful photos and congrats to the newlyweds!

You know who loved her “very personal wedding—with most things having been made by family and friends”? Bride Amanda, that’s who. You know who else loves Amanda’s rustic-elegant Walden Country Club wedding to handsome Coast Guard member Elliot, seen here in lively images by Houston’s Civic Photos? We do! And we hope you do, too.
Selling cell phones might not be the world’s most glamorous job, but it can pay off—with a husband, for instance! It was on the floor of a Sprint retail store where Gesselle met her beloved John, the man she’d eventually marry in a lovely June outdoor ceremony followed by a fun-filled dining-and-dancing reception where burlap, orchids and candlelight played against one another for a perfect rustic-elegant ambiance. Big thanks to Aisha Khan of Ama Photography & Cinema for the lovely photos, and our heartfelt best wishes to the newlyweds!

A DIY wedding for more than 200 guests is no easy feat, so when you pull it off beautifully, it pays to have an awesome photographer—in this case the super talented Sarah Ainsworth—documenting it for posterity. Delane wanted to her wedding to Ryan to be both unforgettable and affordable…and with help from her mother, grandmother, Etsy artists and a few handy craft and hobby retailers, that’s exactly what it was. Using a palette of royal blue and beige with touches of rustic burlap and feminine lace, the bride and her helpers filled Lake Conroe’s Bentwater Yacht Club with sweet, vintage, and, most of all, deeply personal elegance. Homemade pies (the bride’s favorite), a duck-hunting-theme groom’s cake, heirloom jewelry, handmade centerpieces and a high-energy string band added to intimate, joyful atmosphere—and as for a ceremony backdrop, you can’t do much better than blue Lake Conroe sparkling in the background. Happiest wishes to the newlyweds!
