Brooke and Ben, they are that adorable high school sweetheart couple that genuinely loves each other and can't wait to spend the rest of their lives together! I related with her right away because I too married my high school sweetheart. It's funny how similar our relationships are with that common variable. It's almost like you and your hubs are this well oiled machine that only works if you are working side by side. You understand each other better than anyone else and you almost don't even have to speak because you already know what your other half is thinking. It was such a dream styling and coordinating their wedding. Let me note that this was designed by Brooke and she did a fantastic job!
Let's jump right in, shall we?
The ceremony and reception were both in one location, at the gorgeous Carriage House in Conroe, TX. They got married outside under the lush greenery archway. Brooke wanted flowers raining down from the arch and it was nothing shy of stunning!
They had the sweetest first look moment where they both shared tears of joy and love letters to each other expressing their love to one another. I love that! They will forever cherish those words written!
They had Brooke's uncle play the ceremony music, an let me tell you, he was talented! Not only that, he was a fantastic soul to chat with. I was lucky enough to spend some time talking with him at the reception and he was such an interesting and kind hearted man! I love gaining new friends at weddings.
After the ceremony, came every crowds favorite...
Everyone moved up to the bar area where they had ice cold beer, a signature cocktail, and wine.
The appetizers served by the amazing Cafe Natalie! I STRONGLY recommend them to any client! They go above and beyond for not only your quests but you as a couple as well! They served an array of appetizers including sliders my personal favorite...
Did we mention there was the most adorable photo booth for guests to take pictures in??? Oh my work, if you ever need a photo booth, you have to hire Ginger Snap Photo Booth. Is this not the most adorable little camper you have ever seen?
By this time, photos were complete and Brooke and Ben were introduce as the new Mr. & Mrs. Ben Wall! I know Brooke is over the moon about being Mrs. Wall so I had to formally announce this part! hahaha so stinking cute!
The reception was just as exciting as the ceremony. The tables were draped with a faint blush Rosette linen, the centerpieces were something out of a ethereal beauty and the beast with a gold candelabra with greenery crawling up the base and intertwined with roses! They were placed on top of vintage books that were hand painted by Brooke and her family and tied with wonderful textured ribbon.
Dinner Again, Cafe Natalie dressed the tables with fresh wedge salads and dinner was served shortly after. It was amazing, and lucky for me, I was able to eat a plate of it!!!
Dessert, came next which was an amazing spread provided by Whisk Bakery! There was a Bride's cake, a Groom's cake and 3 other mini cakes for guests to try. There were even several versions of cookies that guests could take home in the most adorable little custom cookie boxes. Carla at Whisk Bakery is a dear!!! She is so sweet!
From then it carried on like any other magical wedding, with the first dance, lots of tender moments with family and friends and SO MUCH DANCING!!! What a fantastic way to spend the rest of your life with someone!!!
Let me mention that the entire wedding was captured by a husband and wife team named Ryan and Becki Smith with Smith House Photography. They were an absolute dream to work with and they ooze talent. They capture light and moments in the most magnificent way. But even more than their talent, are their personalities. They are so easy to talk to and make you feel like you have been a friend for a lifetime! I am so thrilled to have been able to work with them and again, gain a new friendship in both of them!
Brooke and Ben, thank you so much for allowing me to be there and coordinate your special day. I truly hope that I exceeded your expectations and that you have a marriage more romantic than The Notebook, which I know you will!
Warmest wishes, Kelcie
