With a ceremony in a field and an indoor reception that sparkled in shades of gold, Sarah and Evan’s wedding at The Grove had rustic Texas charm with off-the-charts elegance! Brandi Allyse Photography truly captured the joy and light-hearted nature of this wedding, from the sweet getting ready moments to the couple’s romantic golden-hour portraits to the tribute group dance for the groom’s late grandfather at the reception. Their ceremony was backed by a gorgeous twisted wood arch and their reception had gold-on-gold decor with everything from the table linens to the centerpiece vases sparkling in the candlelight. Sarah looked stunning in a fitted lace Sottero & Midgley gown, which she paired with romantic waves, a long veil, and a classic white bouquet designed by Andy’s Floral Events. Every inch of this Texas wedding was thoughtfully and elegantly designed, and we simply can’t get enough!

We are blessed to have lives full of laughter and we wanted our wedding to mirror that! Our main goal was making sure the day was a blast for everyone involved.
I walked down the aisle to an instrumental version of “Mario Kart Love Song” by Sam Hart. We are gamers and Evan decided it was “our song” early on in our relationship. It isn’t too well known, so it felt like a sweet little secret between the two of us.
Our photographer Brandi was incredible to work with! She is so much fun and naturally hilarious. She kept the group laughing all day and made everyone feel at ease. How she does all this while simultaneously capturing the most beautiful photos is a true mystery. We just love her!
We had quite a few DIY projects, but my favorites were the head table backdrop wall and the cupcake stand. Evan and his best man built the backdrop after I showed them a photo on Pinterest. They took the idea and ran with it and built such a gorgeous and statement-making piece! The cupcake stand was built by my stepdad. He put so much effort into it and it came out even more lovely than we had imagined.
Our favorite part of the day was easily the dancing after dinner. Having all our loved ones dance and celebrate with us is something we will never forget! Evan‘s father had the DJ play “Che La Luna,” which was Evan‘s late grandfather’s favorite song, so we all danced and twirled our napkins in his honor.
