Simple, Intimate, Outdoor Wedding in Texas

Alison and Austin were high school sweethearts, together for 10 years before finally tying the knot in an intimate outdoor wedding at La La Park in San Marco, Texas.

The couple was less concerned with the aesthetics for the big day, instead, focusing on the feeling of the event. They wanted something simple, intimate, and outdoors (both graduated with Environmental Degrees). They just wanted to dance and celebrate with family and friends.

Alison and Austin conceived most of their ideas around the idea of simplicity. They decided to skip the traditional cake, party favors, and wedding party. They chose to splurge on photographer Nikk Nguyen so they could have great photos to look back on years from now.

A special moment for the couple was taking 10 minutes of personal time directly after the ceremony.

That time was incredible to be able to sit and reflect and talk about how crazy the whole day had been! Getting a little alone time prior to stepping back into the craze that is a wedding was huge.

The majority of the DIY wedding details were a true family effort with the sister-in-law arranging all the flowers, one of the groom’s best friends acting as officiant, recycling decorations from Alison’s brother’s recent wedding, and family and friends helping with all the setup. Even the engagement ring was a family heirloom from Austin’s great grandmother.

As for advice for couples planning their weddings now, the couple says:

Relax! It isn’t about the wedding. Be present. Feel everything that you are experiencing. Do your best to stay in the moment. Everyone says it because it’s true, but it’ll be over in a flash and you’ll be sorry if you don’t take the time to enjoy it!

Icelandic Bohemian Barn Inspiration

I love Macrame. I’m also dying to go to Iceland. So when Dutch planner Nailia from Best Day Ever Events sent over shots from a styled shoot in Iceland, I was very excited. Oh, and there are baby lambs! Need I say more?

So many beautiful details with the rustic florals, stunning calligraphy, and vivid pops of colors on the cake. Lastly, how gorgeous is this setting?
