There’s something so special about Texas, y’all! Kelsey and Guy chose their beautiful Texas wedding venue, The Winfield Inn, just outside of Austin because it reminded the pair of his family’s property in Mississippi. They adored the rustic and vintage charm of their locale, and so do we! Plus, the soft shades of pastels and lavender served as their wedding palette, and they were the perfect colors to accent their vintage details. The oak trees and gazebo provided a gorgeous backdrop for their ceremony, and their flower girls and pup ring bearers were simply adorable. An Alfred Angelo dress that was the perfect choice for Kelsey, beautiful bridesmaids, and one stunning couple who trusted and adored each of their wedding professionals make this soiree captured by Kelly Hornberger Photography one that you simply cannot miss!
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
I handled most of the details, I was blessed to already know an amazing photographer (Kelly Hornberger) and my wedding venue had connections with amazing other vendors. My stand end wedding planner (since I opted not to throw one in the budget) was actually my DJ J.J. Essen, using his vast experience he was more than helpful in planning out the overall sequence of events for the big day.
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
For me it was all about their portfolios (to know that their style meshed with what I had envisioned) and most importantly I wanted someone who made me feel at ease and was not pushy when it came to decisions.
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
The very first detail I decided on was my wedding dress. I fell in love with it in the salon and from there the venue we selected resembled my husband’s property in Mississippi, after visiting the Winfield Inn we were sold by its vintage charm. The other details built around the style and feel of the venue. A soft rustic/vintage feel.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
Marrying the love of my life of course!!! My favorite part of the planning process was the ability to be creative and tie in little odds and ends that really made the day unique and personal to me and Guy.
What is your best piece of advice for other brides?
Don’t stress about the little things. It’s great to plan everything down to last petal scattered down the isle, the tedious little things were my favorite. But as long of you have experienced vendors you can trust, it’s not their first rodeo and everyone will pull together to ensure your wedding day is picture perfect.
