Where do we even start with Joseph and Jessica's spring wedding? Inspired by natural bohemian vibes, greenery and the Texas Hill Country, their wedding was stunningly sublime! A dusty blue, green and copper colored palette came together perfectly for their big day at Gruene Estate. Gruene Estate's hand made wooden farm tables were adorned with greenery and deer antlers to create a subtle balance of rustic chic bliss. The whole day was so sweet, and so is their story!
Joey crashed a house party dressed like cop. Ironically, Jessica was dressed like a cop too, "we met on October 19th 2012, Joey crashed my Halloween party that my roommates and I were throwing at our apartment in San Marcos! He turned out to be a friend of a friend of a friend and we hit it off immediately, after I was done teasing him about crashing my party dressed like a cop (which I was too). Ironically the real cops showed up and shut down our party (we have the ticket framed in our house- haha), and Joey stayed to help me clear out the place out and clean up. We've been pretty inseparable ever since."
Using greenery to enhance the natural beauty of Gruene Estate's open air chapel, a hanging halo floral installation by RemiI+Gold set the tone for a romantic boho chic ceremony.

Jessica and her brides maids in matching floral satin robes in Gruene Estate's historic main house. One of Jessica and Joeys favorite memories of the day, "We both really enjoyed spending the day with our wedding parties, we did not do a first look, so the anticipation built all day up to that unbeatable moment when the church doors open and we get to see each other for the first time. Ringing the bell on the way out and hugging everyone outside the church was blissful. The rest of the night is a blur of smiles and laughs, we danced the night away. The pictures on the dance floor speak for themselves, those are moments with my friends and family I will definitely never forget!"
Jessica wore these adorable embroidered floral accented shoes. She says, "they are very "ME" with the embroidered floral accents. They were comfortable, perfect for dancing all night (very important) and were still super feminine. They fit my style and vibe perfectly."

Joey and his guy gang going with a more formal look in custom tailored ,slim fit, dark navy Ralph Lauren suits! Notice the special touch of light blue floral print ties that match the brides floral theme!

Jessica's ring is an oval cut diamond set in a traditional gold band custom designed by Designer Jewels in Houston, and her wedding band is designed by Eliza Page in Austin. In a personal touch with family meaning and sentimental value, Joey is wearing his late granfather's band that was passed down to him.

Jessica and Joey's advice for future couples is, "It's your day, do it your way. Don't feel too constrained by traditions unless they are important to you. Don't be afraid to show your creativity, your personalty and your quirky side. Have fun with it!"
Happily Ever After!
