This duo includes the Boy Who is Always Joking and the Girl Who Laughs at Everything – they are as complementary as they come. But in the quiet moments – the moments between moments – they reach for each other’s hand and smile across the room knowingly at one another. That’s where the magic happens between Elise and Alex. They know how to have a good time, but they also stop and savor the intimate moments.
Outdoor Ceremony at Star Hill Ranch
In January, at Star Hill Ranch, those quiet moments and the huge belly laughs blended into one perfect day that saw two best friends start their lives as husband and wife. Here’s a little peek:
The sun was shining just for them in Austin that day, and thw property is filled with trees to soften it to the perfect glow. Renee Wooley of the Star Hill Ranch team did a wonderful job of coordinating their big day, and it all went off without a hitch! Elise’s hand-tied bouquet of loose eucalyptus stems, hydrangeas, and pops of red were perfect for this winter wedding and matched her fun and free personality well. And Christine Garcia who was in charge of doing Elise’s hair, created a beautiful, loose updo. Elise looked absolutely stunning throughout her wedding day. And it wouldn’t be a Texas wedding without some Mexican food, thanks to Verde’s Mexican Catering. So delicious! There are so many more vendors to thank for this gorgeous wedding, so be sure to check them out below!
