Q: Why did you choose your invitations?
A: Invitations we wanted to keep simple, mainly because I’m an earth nerd and hate using paper. They had a garland design to go with the Christmas theme!
A little bit of backstory from the bride: Alex and I met at Texas A&M Fish Camp (freshman orientation) and were friends at first, but started dating after the second football game of the season. We were both passionate about sports, food, and our faith (not in that order though). We’ve been together for over seven years now- both graduated A&M, I got my Masters at Sam Houston State, and then I moved to Houston for my job and Alex moved in with me two months later. On December 16th, 2017, Alex proposed. I had a hunch it was going to happen, but didn’t know about the engagement party he planned right after with our families and closest friends. It was the second best day, next to the wedding day of course!
The brides description of her dress:
A: It was a play on Christmas colors- we had evergreen and burgundy with gold accents. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year so we wanted to incorporate that spirit into our big day!
Q: What were the bridesmaids dresses like?
A: all of the dresses are from Weddington Way, which is unfortunately now closed. Thankfully all bridesmaids had already ordered and received their dresses before the stores closed! I picked the color, and let them pick their styles. Best for them to feel most comfortable and beautiful!
The bride’s favorite moment from the big day: Alex and I both loved sitting at our sweetheart table at the beginning of the reception and simply watching all of our guests interact. We were extra blessed in that so many of our guests already knew each other, even though they all come from different areas of our lives. Like my parents said in their toast, a large chunk of our wedding guests were people at their wedding over 30 years ago.
The desserts: Cake was DELICIOUS, but we also had pies at the reception because pies are a common holiday dessert and I prefer pie over cake. We had three cake flavors: sweet cream and berries, cinnamon vanilla, and wedding cake. Our pie flavors were apple crumble, pumpkin, and lemon raspberry.
