A relationship that started as an introduction through a mutual friend in their ministry, ended in happily ever after! Their relationship begins with a white rose and we love how they incorporated that in their wedding. Their wedding day was a little mix of southern with a whole lot of glam and we are here for it! Also, we need to take a special moment to appreciate their getaway car! This was a project the groom and his dad had worked on since he was in high school… how amazing!!
The Love Story
We met at an annual bonfire hosted by our young adult ministry at our church. A friend introduced us and we talked the rest of the night. Over the next few months, our friendship grew as we began to spend more time together. Jake asked me to be his girlfriend on January 6th, 2018. He did it on top of Mount Bonnell in Austin, TX. Jake gave me a white rose when he asked, which we incorporated on our wedding day. The day of the proposal, the weather was dreary and wet. Jake was not sure he was going to be able to pull it off. The plan that day was to meet some friends in downtown New Braunfels to walk around and take pictures. This was also the place of an outing Jake and I went on the first time Jake visited New Braunfels, before we were dating. As the group walked up in to the gazebo at the square, Jake said “It’s go time”, the sign to our friend that the proposal was on! As we stepped back to take a picture, Jake got down on one knee. I said YES!!
Why They Chose The Chandelier
1. The calmness and beauty of the venue. You felt like you were in a completely different place when you entered the grounds.
2. We felt it was a perfect mixture of us; A little rustic as well as glamorous!
3. The price and no fees!! We visited a few venues that were so much more expensive than advertised because of fees.
4. The amount of vendor options that could be used. There was so much flexibility to make the wedding day fit our budget, style, and personality.
The first look! Seeing each other before the ceremony was so calming for both of us and something I will never forget. I was sooo excited to show Jake my dress.
Their Best Advice
Use Trello or another type of scheduling app. Look up timelines on Pinterest or another site and plug it in. This helps see how far out certain things should be done. It helps make it way more manageable and less overwhelming. Also, things will happen on your wedding day that may not be expected, it’s okay! It’s about marrying the one you love, keep that big picture in mind. 🙂
All Together Now
The flowers! Like mentioned earlier, Jake asked me to be his girlfriend with a white rose so those were so special to me on wedding day. Also, my something old, something borrowed and something blue. My something borrowed and something blue was a handkerchief from my great grandmother that has small blue flowers. Inside were 4 pennies. One was the year both Jake and I’s parents got married (1994), my birth year (1997), Jakes birth year (1999) and our wedding year (2021). My necklace I wore was my something old. When I was little I was a flower girl in my mom’s best friend’s wedding and she gave us a pearl necklace to wear, which is the same one I used on wedding day. Lastly, our getaway car was a 1975 international Scout ii. It was a father/son rebuild Jake and his dad worked on since Jake was in high school. It was such a fun touch to end the night!
We love to see how our couples incorporate their styles and plan out their wedding day. The Chandelier is really a beautiful blank slate to create the wedding of your dreams! The sentimental items each couple adds creates more meaning to your day! Also, we need another moment of silence for their getaway car…. so fun!
