We have another DIY affair to jump start your day! Held at the family home, this Hill Country backyard wedding is just too cute for words. Taking a bicycle theme and running with it, this couple managed to include personal details in almost every element of their big day. The monogrammed can holders, program fans and peach favors are all elements that make this couple's day uniquely "them"-no cookie-cutter wedding here! And to top it all off, the lucky bride and groom have wonderful memories of their happy day thanks to Feather & Twine Photography. Just when I think I've discovered every great photographer in the Lone Star State, I unearth another great artist to add to my arsenal for blog-stalking. Yep, I admit it, I am a photography blog stalker. And after viewing these images you will be too!
From the bride...I've been obsessed with the movie Hope Floats forever and from the beginning I told my mom I wanted the wedding to have a "hope floats" feel. That theme slowly turned into a hodge podge of random things I liked, including old bicycles. I even bought an old purple tandem bicycle on eBay for the big day. My creative mother pulled all of my non-traditional ideas together and created the most fantastic decorations! Mom was quite the "DIYer" and even hand-painted all of the placemats. Her special touch was everywhere and I could not have asked for anything more perfect for me and Marty. We could not have had a more special wedding venue. We got married at my family's lake house on lake LBJ. My parents spent three years building this amazing house and when it was finally done my dad was diagnosed with cancer and passed away very quickly. He got to enjoy the lake house for a month before he left us, but it was his favorite place to spend time and was so very special to him. There is no way I would have gotten married anywhere but the lakehouse. The groom and groomsmen made their entry on my dads cherished red and white Mastercraft. While my dad wasn't there pysically his spirit was with us the entire weekend. I could see little touches and things everywhere that reminded me of him and that made the day even more special.
