The Hoffman Haus, a quintessentially Texas venue nestled in the Hill Country, set the stage for Alanna and Noah’s whimsical DIY wedding. Taking the wedding into their own hands — literally! — Alanna and Noah handcrafted each element of their day, from the ceremony huppah to the reception centerpieces. Mercedes Morgan Photography captured the couple saying “I do” beneath hanging parasols and embracing in the golden hour light for the first time as husband and wife.

The Hoffman Haus, Frericksburg, Texas
Rustic meets romance was my inspiration. I wanted the wedding to look timeless and unique, as well as highlight the reasons why we fell in love with our venue, The Hoffman Haus. My color palette was rose pink, silver, hints of sage green and rustic wood colors. We tried to do as many DIY touches as we could. Noah made the huppah and I hand-cut the wine bottles used for the succulents in the centerpieces.
My dress was bought from a bridal salon in Boston and is Amsale Summer — it has hints of romance and glamour, which was the look that I was going for. I wore a mid-length veil and glittery sandals to pull the look together (I didn’t want to be bothered by heels on my big day!). I wore no jewelry because I wanted the dress to shine by itself.
My favorite moment in the wedding was hitting the dance floor with all of our guests. The DJ played great music and we had strobe lights and fog going. Everyone had a great time.
