Whitney and Michael’s Wildflower Hill Country Wedding at The Phoenix Special Events Facility in Weimar, TX
Oh boy, did we love Whitney and Michael’s wedding. Whitney and I are friends from high school, and I love Whitney’s style, so I was in photographer heaven at their wedding! The wildflowers were gorgeous, we loved (LOVED) The Phoenix venue in Weimar, and of course, it was extra fun to have a mini high school reunion and see old friends at their wedding!
Whitney and Michael’s wedding was so laid back and refreshing. There were a few hiccups, including rain on their planned outdoor wedding ceremony. And their custom-engraved rings were still in a Houston package distribution center on the morning of the wedding! The Phoenix facility manager took it upon himself to save the day and drove all the way in to pick them up! I think he moonlights as a superhero when he’s not hosting fabulous weddings. But if Whitney or Michael felt stressed that day, we sure didn’t see it-they were simply in love and ready to get married!
Their details were so personal and delightful. Whitney and Michael love to travel together, so we got to see lots of their travel photos and a map of some of the places they’ve been together — so far! And I think everyone loved seeing their Dumb & Dumber cake.
We loved being able to capture their first look moment, and they had a good time revealing to each other what they’d engraved on their rings. The ceremony was short, sweet, and a beautiful moment. We had fun catching up with old friends at the reception, and the kids in particular had a blast breaking down a pinata!
How they met:
We met on Plenty of Fish with no intentions of anything. Obviously it worked out for the best.
The most fun part of wedding planning:
Trying to keep the actual day/event light and fun. Really putting a lot of personal touches of us was so important in keeping it fun.
Their wedding inspiration:
No real theme, just wanted to plan a great party we got married at. I feel like we really pulled that off. The pinata for the kids was so fun and I am glad we included it. The ceremony was originally supposed to be outside but the rain moved us inside. I really love how the backdrop curtain to the ceremony turned out and I don’t think it would have been that awesome outside. The groom’s cake was also something I was excited for everyone to see. Who doesn’t love Dumb and Dumber? That movie also played a role in us meeting and talking, as my screen name was “fredafelture” and that is why he messaged me.
Their favorite moment from the wedding:
I really liked the pinata because I was able to really see everyone be there gathered around having fun.
Favorite wedding songs:
Bridal processional: Here, There, and Everywhere- the Beatles
First Dance: Corey Smith- First Dance
Processional: Free/Into the Mystic- Zac Brown Band
What they’re looking forward to:
Having fun and sharing adventures together. Passing down our love of travel and adventure to any future kiddos
