In late June we joined Dustin & Virginia for their wedding day, and we’ve been so excited to share their wedding story on the blog!
Dustin and Virginia had their outdoor rustic wedding at Rustic Acres Event Center in Belton, Tx, and it was the perfect venue for their wedding. The ceremony site had lush green grass, even in the Texas summer! The backdrop of the green trees behind the altar framed the ceremony beautifully. And the open fields with hay bales made for some romantic sunset portraits while the reception was rocking along inside the red barn.
Virginia chose a pink, tan and cream color palette, an ideal choice for a rustic Texas wedding in summer! The bridesmaids wore soft pink dresses, while the groomsmen wore a Texas tuxedo - jeans, boots, a white button up shirt, and vest and tie. The tan, pink and cream color palette was carried throughout the wedding day in the large pink rose bouquets carried by the bridal party, the pink roses that adorned the buttercream wedding cake, and the burlap and wood used throughout the decor.
Dustin & Virginia’s wedding was simple, romantic, and full of so many sweet moments. Their daughter was enamored with Virginia’s wedding dress, and kept wanting to touch her skirt. In fact, kids were a big part of the day! Nieces and nephews filled out the bridal party, and little cousins ran around the dance floor all evening. One of the sweetest things to watch during most of the reception was all the dads, grandpas, and uncles dancing with the little girls, teaching them how to two-step and twirl.
We say it every wedding, but it still holds true, our Sweethearts always have the most amazing friends and family. Seeing how everyone gathers to help our Sweethearts have the wedding of their dreams, how they celebrate and cheer on the love shared between the couple...it’s always so heartwarming to see. A marriage is two people, but it’s also their support system. And seeing such a great support system surround Dustin & Virginia gives us faith in the strength of their marriage.
