Sloane and Bo’s Rustic Chic DIY Fete at Gruene Estate
Sloane and Bo were such a fun couple to work with. Their laid back and rustic event at Gruene Estate perfectly complemented their down to earth personalities. Seeking a wedding experience that was fun, unique, and simple, there wedding at Gruene Estate was inspired by friends and family with unique touches that were gathered from places and memories from their time spent in Historic Gruene Texas and New Braunfels.
Special attention was given to vendors that they know and love. Their friends were involved every step of the way and helped inspire design throughout the entire event. One of their closest friends acted as minister in the ceremony, and another was the lead singer in the band.
Always more concerned about others than themselves, Bo and Sloane paid special attention to ensure that their guest had a unique and fun experience at their wedding. In addition to specialty drinks at the bar, each guest received their own jar of Rudy’s BBQ rub. One of their favorite bar-b-que places in town. Instead of the traditional photo booth, Polaroid cameras were given to guests along with a memory book for people to place pictures in, or to draw a memorable sketch. Guests were involved in the ceremony in a fun and creative way! Part of the ceremony involved friends and family telling their favorite stories about Bo and Sloane, or quoting their favorite movie lines that guest could relate to the couple and laugh about.
Obviously a girl after our own heart, Sloane wore a white V-cut Vanessa Virginia dress from Anthropolgie. Her beautiful dress and laid back style contrasted with the rustic elegance of our historic and original open air chapel was stunning! Bo, wore a black vintage pinstripe waistcoat that had sentimental value and was passed down to him from his father. One of the cutest and sweetest thing that we’ve seen in a long time: When Bo met Sloane, he happened to be carrying a small tin of mints in his jacket. Having the premonition that she was special, he saved the mint tin throughout their entire relationship and dating experience, and this tin was used to carry the rings down to the aisle to the alter! Sentimental touches and a laid back style, created a one of kind wedding experience that matched their personalities perfectly!
