Whitney and Marshal tied the knot in March at the Horseshoe Bay Resort in an outdoor ceremony with beautiful views of the water and Texas Hill Country! Their wedding date was particularly meaningful because it was the bride's late grandfather's birthday, and the groom's uncle officiated. Their floral arrangements featured succulents and peonies to match the color palette of green, white and gold. Guests were treated to a wonderful evening of dancing with a live band and a host of finger foods: mason jars filled with truffled mac and cheese, a mashed potato bar, a station with sliders and risotto, and mini shot glasses filled with tomato basil soup, topped with mini heart-shaped grilled cheese sandwiches. Their signature drink was a cucumber mint gimlet, and at the end of the reception, they had mini chicken and waffles for guests to grab on their way out. Matthew Johnson Studios captured their day!
An elegant emerald seaside wedding in Horseshoe Bay, TX
My advice for future brides is after all the planning and tears just remember at the end of the day you are marrying the man of your dreams and even if something goes wrong like having two male deer kissing on your cake it’s not the end of the world, it actually makes for a great story to tell people later on. Plus, the small little details that go into planning a wedding NO ONE will notice if they are wrong or not, so just go with it and enjoy every minute of your wedding day and reception. People will remember the band, the drinks, and how much fun they had and really that’s all that matters. If someone walks away remembering the color of the table linens then (let’s get real) they didn’t leave the table to dance and have fun. – Whitney
