When wedding planner and Junebug member Epoch Co+ asked Ryann and Michael what aesthetic they wanted for their wedding, Ryann immediately thought of the kids she works with. She wanted a calm, soothing environment similar to her classroom, so she chose a natural and earth tone wedding—talk about a truly adorable and unforgettable aesthetic.
From the ceremony in a field of green and a reception at a repurposed factory with floral chandeliers, every inch of this wedding was calm, soothing, and beautiful. To top it off, their reception was drenched in light from a golden sunset. Get ready to “see skies of blue and clouds of white” and let photos by Century Tree Co whisk you away.

Natural And Earth Toned Colors
When Heather asked us about the aesthetic we were hoping to achieve, I thought of my classroom at school. Since I’m a speech therapist and work with children with special needs, my classroom is decorated with colors found in nature (blues, greens, browns) to help calm my kids. We wanted our wedding to be calming, soothing, relaxing with a natural color palette, and Heather really helped us achieve a simple and elegant wedding.
The Happiest Newlyweds
My favorite part of the day was when Michael and I walked down the aisle together after we’d gotten married. There was such relief and excitement knowing we were finally married and got to go enjoy our guests and have a big party to celebrate!
Special Texas-Made Memories
One of the most memorable parts of our wedding were the cotton fields that looked like they had been dusted with snow—it was magical! I loved dancing at the reception in cowboy boots to Garth Brooks’s “Friends in Low Places” while the whole crowd sang. My brother-in-law ordained the ceremony which was really special and read Michael’s mom’s favorite poem.
