Over a year of waiting for this day. One of the very first phone calls with Whitney, I knew that this day was going to be something special. Not only from how she spoke about her relationship with Devin and how excited they were to finally get married, but also how she described what her dream day would look and feel like. Whitney and Devin had the best eye and attention to detail for their intimate backyard wedding at Whitney’s family home in Weatherford, Texas (and what a piece of property!). The rustic elegance of the site paired well with their modern details from Whitney’s beautiful custom wedding gown to the garland and gold touches that graced their reception tables. It all just felt right and was meticulously planned by the couple and their families.
One thing that I especially appreciated was how intimate they kept the entire day. Just their close friends and family in a place that holds a lot of meaning for Whitney – they even had a close friend marry them. The day truly felt like it was exactly what they wanted and coming from someone who sees a lot of weddings, that is something special to witness. And it just goes to show that weddings can really be whatever you want them to be and you can throw a huge party or keep it small, even if it’s just the two of you and an officiant.
From Whitney: “All the hours, days, months and actually years! Put into this celebration was worth it. There were times where something didn’t fit into our budget and we had to get creative. There were times where something fell through and we had to find a different vendor. But in the end, it was absolutely beautiful and just looking at it makes me tear up!”
