This wedding I am about to share was one of my favorite weddings for last year. The couple and their family were just the sweetest people you could ever meet. I knew it was going to be a perfect fit right when I met them. I myself am from a small town, so I felt I could really relate to the couple and their family. They were so much fun at every meeting, and with full planning trust me there is a lot lol!. I seriously can’t say enough about this sweet couple and their family, and how much fun it was to design and plan their wedding!
Emily & Justin’s wedding at The Brooks at Weatherford, which you can find even more details about on our Fort Worth Wedding Venues blog post, was the perfect mix of rustic and elegance! From the dusty hue color scheme, crystals, antlers, and open air chapel it was any Texas bride’s dream 😊 It had a dusty blue, silver, and lavender color scheme that helped create an elegant setting, while the venue was the perfect rustic backdrop.
THE BROOKS AT WEATHERFORD WEDDING CEREMONY
The bride and groom got married in the Brooks at Weatherford country chapel, that is honestly jaw dropping. I swear every time I walk into this chapel I get goosebumps. From the white walls, gothic style windows, wood pews, and open air concept it creates the perfect atmosphere. We did not want to do too much decoration because we did not want to take away from chapel’s beauty, so we only added silver dollar eucalyptus garlands with white spray roses on the edge of every other pew. It was the perfect way to accentuate the aisle, but not over do it. Guests were handed dusty blue program fans with a pattern edge that described the wedding party and ceremony timeline. And it was also a great way to keep guests cool in the July heat!
After the ceremony as the couple took pictures, guest signed the guestbook (coolest one yet in my opinion!) a large cow skull! I mean how fun is that!?! And as guests walked up to the Brooks at Weatherford reception hall from the country chapel, they were greeted with passed hors d'oeuvres, a salsa bar, and margaritas. I don’t know about you, but in Texas the is the perfect start to any party!
THE BROOKS AT WEATHERFORD WEDDING RECEPTION
Once we opened the doors to the Brooks at Weatherford, the band began to play, and guests found their name on the large floral wall seating by the entrance. It was a gorgeous mix of white hydrangeas, spray roses, and white garden roses, and had silver picture frames that noted who is sitting at what table. The reception had a mix of long and round tables with a tulle overlay, and each place setting had a jam jar with silver ribbon, with a thank you note from the couple. The room was filled with white, blush, and lavender flowers in silver and clear vases, and the tall floral arrangements had hanging teardrop crystals. The cake was a standout piece in the reception from the silver edible sequins to the different tier heights. The groom’s firefighter cake was the perfect personal touch since the groom was on the Weatherford fire department.
As the night went on the guests danced the night away with music from a live band that kept everyone on the dance floor the entire evening. When it was time to leave guests lite sparklers and the bride and groom kiss under a tunnel of sparkler light. It was the perfect end to a fantastic night!
Congratulations you two!
