Weddings handcrafted by family members can create such a memorable occasion.  This nature focused Waco wedding was held on the couple's family land under an altar handmade by the couple's family members.  The love infused throughout the day is clearly visible in these photographs snapped by Shelly Taylor.  The gallery has even more family-crafted goodness!


Can we just stop and discuss this pink-colored diamond ring?! It is perfection! And I am loving it against these soft coral, pink, and green florals.

Don’t you just adore these “tree-pews”! They are the epitome of rustic chic and complement the lakeside ceremony space wonderfully.

Casual yet sophisticated groomsmen attire can be hard to pull off, but these gentlemen look so dapper.

How adorable are these succulent favors that also serve as place cards for the guests.  Such an ingenious way to make your guests feel special.


From Shelly Taylor...Melinda and Bryce were married on family land, at an altar made by family members. The arbor and benches were also hand crafted. The spring palette of corals and light pinks blended perfectly with the serene landscape. The barn was decorated for the reception with gorgeous detail and rustic, natural highlights.
