It was an amazing and gorgeous hill country Saturday! The birds were chirping, and the weather was warm with a slight breeze. The day was perfect for a May wedding at Star Hill Ranch just outside of Austin, Texas in the picturesque hill country.
The girl grew up on various marine bases across the country. The boy grew up just south of Houston. Then one day, the boy and girl met and fell in love. The wedding day was planned with a lot of focus on family and friends. Special touches that represented the bride’s ancestral lineage from Ireland and her years growing up in Hawaii made the ceremony especially memorable.
See this wedding featured on the Knot website here.
The ceremony was set up outside against the gorgeous backdrop of hill country foliage. It was a spectacular day!
Since the bride’s maternal side is from Ireland, an old fashion handfasting was part of the ceremony.
Succulents were part of all the bouquets, boutonnieres and other flower arrangements bringing in that hill country feeling.
Here the bride and groom posed with their official (and fresh) leis flown in from Hawaii with the maid of honor. The leis were presented by the maid of honor during the ceremony to represent the bride’s years living in Hawaii.
In addition to the tradional guest register, a wine barrel was brought in where guests could write their best wishes for the couple. The groom later put a glass top on the barrel and they now use it as a table in their home.
A special shout out to the creative team that helped make this day so special for the bride and groom…
