Avery + Garrett’s wedding day was a total DREAM! From the dried florals and sleek modern elements, to the wicker accents and desert-inspired color palette, it was a boho-modern oasis! Our Bradford Pear trees were in full bloom around the venue. It truly couldn’t have been a more beautiful day to celebrate these two lovebirds!
In true Texas fashion, A + G’s love story began at Whataburger – “Although the fries were especially crispy and the patty melt was the best it has ever been, there was something even more wonderful developing in the Texas fast food chain that night – true love.” After almost six years of dating, Garrett finally popped the question to which Avery responded with, “dang boy, took ya long enough!” “Through the years, we have been on many amazing adventures together. What is most exciting, is that those adventures are just a fraction of what we have to look forward to.”
We truly are always so honored by the kind things that our couples say about our space. There are so many great venues in the DFW area, so we love to hear what drew them to choosing us to host such a special day! A says that it was, “the simplistic beauty of the venue. Not feeling like we needed to “add” a lot of things to make it look beautiful. The Emerson Venue speaks for itself and doesn’t need all the extra things for your wedding to be beautiful.”
From spending the morning getting ready alongside your closest friends, meeting eyes with your babe for the first time all day, sharing your vows in front of all of your loved ones, to dancing the night away, weddings are full of monumental, special moments! Here are a few of A’s favorites from their wedding day – “I would absolutely have to say walking down the aisle (very stereotypical, I know) but I can vividly remember feeling the tears flood my eyes and seeing my husband’s doing the same at the end of the aisle. It was one of the sweetest moments. I also loved our one on one moment right after the ceremony, where we went off to the side and just cherished those first few moments as husband and wife. And of course, celebrating our love with all of our family and friends, something I will never forget.”
We could not agree more with A’s wedding planning advice for all those who are in the midst of planning now! “Do not, absolutely do not stress about the little details. In all honesty, there will more than likely be one little detail in your wedding that unfortunately, doesn’t go as planned but don’t focus on that. Focus on the meaning of that day and your person standing right in front of you. No matter what, your wedding day will be beautiful and everything you have ever dreamed it would be, even if it isn’t exactly to the tee, what you had pinned to your Pinterest boards. And…hire a wedding planner, so worth it.“
Congratulations again to the Sheppards! A + G actually just recently announced that they are expecting a baby early next year! We are cheering you on as you step into this next role as parents! We love you two so much! You’re going to be amazing! We also wanted to give a big shout out to all of the wonderful vendors who executed this dream wedding day! Chelsea Reece, we think the world of you. Each one of your galleries are amongst our favorites of all time. You’re brave + kind, and we are committed to championing you as you chase your next dream! Thank you for these beautiful photos that we get to cherish forever!
