I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

Mauve, blush and dusty pink make up the dreamiest palette in Emma and Brad’s wedding day at Camp Lucy. The couple enlisted the help of event designer Stefanie Miles who collected a group of all-star vendors to execute the beautiful day. Florist Bows and Arrows brought the beauty of the pink palette to life with arrangements overflowing with dahlias, roses and peonies and a receptions dripping in greenery. Literally you guys—spectacular greens are dripping from the rafters of the nineteenth century French Colonial chapel. There’s romance and joy all over this Texas wedding and we’re thrilled to share it with you in these stunning images by Krystle Akin.

from the bride: Despite being in the same freshman orientation class, dorm and even several business classes, Brad and I didn’t meet until the summer before our junior year on a study abroad trip to London. Three years later, Brad proposed in Cabo San Lucas at our favorite restaurant that’s carved into a series of cliffs overlooking the ocean.

As Brad and I started planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted it to be personal and unique to us as a couple. Our family has always been extremely important to us so we wanted to include them in as many ways as possible. During the ceremony, my uncle played guitar while my cousin sang “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” as I walked down the aisle with my mom and dad. My aunt read a verse from Corinthians 1 and my 90-year old grandmother attached a pin that has been worn by every woman in the family at their wedding onto my dress. We even asked all the family members who have been married to send us a photo from their cake cutting for us to place around the cake.

Our wedding weekend was not perfect but it was absolutely perfect for us! We allowed ourselves to go with the flow and accept that things wouldn’t go exactly as planned. We decided to spend time with each other and the entire wedding party before the ceremony even started to calm our nerves and even sneaked in a kiss after getting caught up in the emotions of reading our vows to one another. It was not only an amazing day but also an amazing weekend spent with life-long friends and family.
