After three proposals (yes, three! And three rings!), Casey and Will were married at the Capri Lounge in Marfa, Texas. The West Texas wedding was inspired by the simple and effortless desert surroundings, with cacti as centerpieces and an aloe plant cake topper. Kristi Wright Photography captured every breathtaking moment, from the spontaneous ceremony rainbow to the first dance with the couple’s favorite song by their favorite band.
Casey and Will
Capri Lounge, Marfa, Texas
Marfa is one of our favorite vacation destinations, and we love the stark beauty of the town and its surroundings. We wanted to create a wedding that reflected that quality. We tried to keep the decor simple, especially considering we had to transport most of it from Austin.
Will proposed three times with three rings. The first proposal was back at Barton Springs. Will coaxed me out of the house late one cold November night and convinced me to hop the fence for a “late night swim.” As steam rose from the water, he proposed and we celebrated with a quick, cold dip. The second proposal was a few weeks later as we danced to one of our favorite bands, Ramsay Midwood, who would later play at our wedding. As we were twirling he slipped the ring on my finger and whispered in my ear. The third proposal was at my parents’ farm in North Carolina right before Christmas. I always thought I would get married on the farm and he wanted to make sure that at least a portion of the proposal happened there. Now I have three pretty rings, each with a sweet memory attached.
Definitely the dance floor. Ranking number one was our first dance — “Home In Your Heart” by Solomon Burke. It was so much fun to spin around, get down, and shake it out with Will. Ramsay and his band ended up playing late into the night, and everyone was cutting loose and having a blast.
The Couple Recommends:
Jeff was the best – he made everything we needed from the website to the tote bags and it all came out exactly as we had hoped and described. Always great to work with someone who knows what you want and makes it all so nicely.
Kristi Wright did a wonderful job photographing the weekend’s events and we are so happy to have so many great photos to remind us of all of the fun.
