Yesterday when I talked about this weather making me nostalgic for when I first fell in love with my husband, it reminded me of something and I’ve decided to share!
The day we go married was the best day ever (I know, I just said it was our last day in Spain but I changed my mind).
It was a mild Saturday morning in June when we woke on the day of our wedding. I was so full of joy and excitement I could barely contain myself! We made our way to the venue, 809 at Vickery, to set up. Our vision was “Desert Sunset”. My bridesmaid’s dresses really set the scene.
So soft and precious. Each dress was a different style… from strapless, to backless and high-waisted to romper! Yes, ROMPER! One of my bridesmaids also doubled as my photographer so she didn’t want to wear a dress while she was doin’ her thang. Each girl got to choose their style and the fabric was called Horizon. Whitney Deal, the designer, is seriously the best. She sent a precious card with each dress personalized to each maid. It’s all in the details!
Our men were dressed in similar hues with homemade boutonnieres by yours truly. We had such a fun group of guys and they all had signature looks. For their groomsmen gifts, we gave them monogrammed bow ties. Love!
Our ring bearer and flower girl should have won an award for being so cute.
Our vision for the day was to start out soft and end with a bang. Our ceremony was sweet and soulful, with pastel hues and mellow charm. In the ceremony we broke out the bright and vibrant colors for the party!
We had the CUTEST cookies from Cakewalk Bake Shop. Emily is literally the sweetest person you will ever meet.
Did I mention we also had a mariachi?
CV1 is Hispanic and I am a native Texan. We mixed our cultures throughout the whole wedding but our dinner was the most obvious blending of backgrounds. We called it, “Texas Meets Mexico”
Barbecue from Cousin’s and Tacos from their daughter company Digg’s. Get. Out. Of. Town. So delicious!
We spent the whole year before our wedding collecting 250 mismatched plates. It was so fun! We’ve kept our favorites and they’re now on our dining room table. Its a very sweet reminder of our special day.
There were so many family touches to our special day. I am incredibly thankful to have and hold these memories forever.

The best wedding gift we received was from one of the best up and coming cinematographers. Chris Verner, presented us with a fabulous stop motion video of our whole day. What a sweet surprise!
You can see that video here. Seriously, go watch it! It’s the coolest thing.
Our day was so special. I could talk about it for hours and hours. But I will let you get back to your work day. Happy Tuesday from the Vallejos!
