Are you ready for some serious wedding envy? Don’t say I didn’t warn you… Brooke and Spencer had a lunchtime wedding in Texas in June, “I met Spencer at summer camp in Ardmore when I was 13 and he was 14. We had a friendship spanning over 10+ years until we both ended up in San Marcos, Texas where our friendship grew into something more. Our ceremony was performed by one of the counsellors from that summer camp!”

“The inspiration for our wedding was our venue, Le San Michele. I really was inspired by the landscape and décor. It was simple and beautiful. We bought flowers in bulk at Austin Flower Co. and I arranged the bouquets and boutonnieres. I also created the succulent planters with my sister. The vases were all found at thrift stores. We bulk ordered hand fans for wholesale online and made tags for each handle inscribed with the wedding date. A lot of the décor we spray painted with gold paint or mirror spray paint. ”

“We didn’t include most of the normal wedding events such as bouquet tossing, first dances, or a DJ style reception”, she continued. “We got married at high noon on a Sunday and had a wonderful bluegrass band to create the perfect atmosphere and vibe.”

“Having our wedding on Sunday was cheaper”, she concluded. “I also wore a dress from Free People which was under $200. Our biggest expense was actually the flowers, even though we arranged them ourselves. I love flowers and greenery so I had to splurge on them. Our other biggest expense was booze! We didn’t want a cash bar so we served mimosas and bloody marys with the brunch.”
