DIY Texas Hill Country Wedding at Memory Lane Event Center

June 8, 2017 | Junebug Weddings

In true Texas Hill Country fashion, Lauren and Chris’s wedding included bourbon shots, cowboy hats, and tons of eclectic details! The couple’s wedding at Memory Lane Event Center began with a super sweet first look, then was followed by a fun ceremony where they took unity bourbon shots under a gorgeous wooden arbor. Lauren and Chris’s reception was full of quirky, rustic details like a guitar case card box, an alternative guest book with retro postcards, and a simply gorgeous dessert table that the bride’s mom baked most of the treats for. We can’t get enough of the portraits that You Are My True captured of the couple in a grassy field after the ceremony!

The Couple:

Lauren and Chris

The Wedding:

Memory Lane Event Center, Dripping Springs, Texas



A pretty common ceremony tradition is to pour sands together or light a candle in unity, but we chose to tailor that idea to fit us and do unity bourbon shots. Everyone seemed to love the uniqueness of it and it definitely helped to ease the nerves!

There was a sliver of time between taking pictures and going into the reception where we were able to just sit, have a drink and breathe together. It was a quiet moment and I think that’s where it finally sank in that we were actually married!

Don’t be afraid to ask for help! When we started planning our wedding I literally thought I could do it all by myself, no problem. But that quickly faded and it really helped to have people you can trust in your corner. Plus, it’s just more fun that way!

Chris designed all of the signage for our reception along with our whole invitation suite. My mother and I also sourced all kinds of vintage glassware that she later turned into a million candles for the reception. On top of that she also made most of the cakes/treats on the dessert bar! The lady was a total rockstar.
