We love the soft rustic details of this Texas vintage styled wedding shoot and homage to Round Top: the home of rare finds and an antique haven. Layered with gorgeous pastels, bold jewelry amidst delicate gowns, sweet feminine hand fans, and dozens of soft hued flowers, the scene feels like a dream. One of are favorites is the white flowered decor hanging on the alter. Beautiful.
From Christa Elyce Photography… The theme of this photo shoot, “Treasure Your Love,” pays respect to Round Top, Texas, which is best known for antique festivals and treasure-finding. The backdrop to the shoot is interior designer Rachel Ashwell’s shabby chic ranch and B&B called The Prairie, which located just minutes from the town center. The Prairie barn is nestled among fields, trees and a lake that draws cattle to drink. It’s the perfect scene for a “Texas Elegance” wedding. From the china and glassware to the floral vessels and place cards, all the design elements celebrate life’s little treasures found. The greatest treasure of all being LOVE.

We usually have more of a story to share with our fans, but alas, this one is short and sweet. We think the beautiful photography by Thisbe Grace Photography of Dallas, tells us the rest of the story – happily ever after.
Story: Heiko and Mary met while Mary was living in Germany. He was sent over from London to attend a meeting at Mary’s place of employment. He was nice, so Mary’s colleague and her decided to go to London to celebrate the colleague’s birthday and invited Heiko out to the celebrations. The rest is history! They got engaged in beautiful Champagne, France on their fourth anniversary of dating.
