Get your “love this!” folders ready, my friends, because Kate and Lane’s wedding is full of handmade DIY details that you’re going to want to borrow for your own big day.
About Kate & Lane from Kate’s point-of-view:
I met my husband in a cave. Yes. A dark, dusty, bat-filled cave. Little did I know the man crawling through crevices in front of me would one day surprise me with a perfect proposal, being my world travel companion, and call me his wife. I cannot imagine a more suitable and true-to-us, being to our adventure.
About The Wedding:
After putting a ring on my finger, we quickly started planning. I chose a sweet southern, vintage theme for the occasion. I’ve always been drawn to objects with an element of history. I wanted the wedding to have character; an event reflecting decades passed while celebrating the decades to come. Accomplishing this vision, my mother and I enjoyed antique hunting, to find the perfect pieces. We thoroughly enjoyed the DIY aspect, all the way from programs to pew decor. I incorporated family heirlooms and collections into everything from what I carried down the aisle to the centerpieces. Instead of a pillow from the ring bearer, we used the bible my grandparents were given on their wedding day. My husband and I shared a sweetheart table at the reception. Our centerpiece consisted of the cake topper from my parents’ wedding as well as the antique salt and pepper shakers my grandparents had received for their 25th wedding anniversary.
Festivities kicked off earlier in the week as friends and family traveled from all corners of Texas, the western US, New York, and even China! Our rehearsal dinner took place at a charming city park, just a few winding miles from our venue. With a few tables waiting under the small pavilion, we enjoyed an evening of our favorite local tacos and conversation. The following day, we tied the knot at a beautiful gem of a venue, Star Hill Ranch. Nestled in the rolling hill country of central Texas, Star Hill Ranch provides a charming and romantic setting full of old, restored chapels and buildings from all across the state. After exchanging vows in a tiny, white chapel built at the turn of the 20th century, we moved to a charmed school house for the reception.
One of my favorite elements was a wedding photo display made from family albums and old window frames. Many of the decorations from our wedding are recycled in our new home. We’ve truly enjoyed having these little touches around. Our favorite souvenir from the wedding is definitely the incredible collection of wedding photos, courtesy of our amazing photographer, Lindsey Thorne. She captured all emotions of the day, and in miraculous beauty and detail. Her use of light and composition still gives me chills! My husband and I are so glad we possess such incredible photos from our wedding, to one day share with our children.
The result of all their hard work is a sweet and beautiful wedding that’s not overly fussy or complicated. The details blend perfectly together and compliment the day. Well done!
