When Madison told us about the design of their wedding day, we were absolutely swooning and couldn’t wait to see it come to life. Understated simplicity with intricate details came together for a breathtaking day filled with love. From abundant greenery and white florals to clear acrylic details, rich bridesmaid dresses, and the most stunning lace wedding dress, we cannot get enough. Keep reading to hear how these high school sweethearts turned their long engagement into a stress-free wedding that was all about spending time together and soaking it all in. 

The Love Story

Colton and I are high school sweethearts! We started dating in 2012, got engaged in 2019, and got married at The Chandelier in November of 2020.

Why They Chose The Chandelier

My mother-in-law started following The Chandelier on facebook when they started the building process. She then showed me the venue online and I fell in love. I knew I wanted to get married there far before I was even engaged. We booked our wedding at The Chandelier before even seeing it in person. The best part of being a Chandelier couple was being able to give our guests a destination wedding feel without having to travel too far from home. Our family and friends are from Houston, so being able to spend the weekend in Gruene/New Braunfels was a treat!

The Last Dance

The most memorable moment from our wedding day was our private last dance of the night as husband and wife under The Chandelier. It gave us a second to reflect on the day just us two.

Their Best Advice

My best piece of advice to future brides would be to ask your vendors their opinion and advice. My vendors were my biggest assets in the planning process. They’ve been through hundreds of weddings and have seen it all. I relied on them a lot for their expertise and input for everything from their own services to who they would recommend for other services.

Soaking In The Moment

Colton and I got engaged in May of 2019, and booked our wedding for November of 2020. This gave us a long engagement, but was so worth it in the end. I had plenty of time to plan every detail and knew that my vendors had everything under control. This allowed me to relax and really enjoy the day, stress-free! With the elimination of stress, I was truly able to remember and take in all the details of the day.

The Dream Team

We absolutely LOVED our photographer Adrien with Pine and Blossom, and our florist Barbie with Barbie’s Florals! Both ladies went above and beyond for us on our wedding day and we cannot thank them enough for everything they did. Adrien was able to wrangle our crazy group of groomsmen, and get beautiful pictures. She did all this while stepping in to help in areas that were not expected of her, like helping with my bustle for example. She’s a saint. Barbie did an amazing job with our florals, and delivered exactly what I had envisioned and then some! I wanted strictly greenery and white florals only. There was greenery everywhere! She came with extra greenery, and added the perfect finishing touches to everything that was the icing on the cake for our decorations.

It still amazes us that Madison and Colton have been following along with us since the very beginning and that they booked before ever coming to the property in person, but boy are we glad that they did. From participating in a last dance (y’all know we LOVE them) to leaning on their vendors for advice, we love how everything came together for their big day. More than that, though, their love is so evident in all of their pictures and we are honored that we got to play a part in their love story.
