What’s more beautiful than being surrounded by the world’s best views as you say I do to the love of your life?… Breauna and Nick did just that for their wedding day! Read along as Breauna shares all about her incredible wedding experience and the details that made it a wonderous celebration with family and friends.
My husband, Nick, proposed to me at the Texas state-line when we were moving from Indiana back home to Texas. We had decided just two months before that we weren’t super happy there and Texas has always been attractive to us because it’s cheaper, we were sick of the snow, and his family is here! He didn’t even have a job offer until just two weeks before we moved which we were beyond thankful for because we did not have a backup plan! When I had asked him why he chose to propose at that time, he said it seemed like the perfect way to start our new and exciting chapter.
My dream dress – Style 1583 by Eve of Milady
When I saw the dress on the rack and all the gorgeous beading, I knew I had to try it on. The sample size looked like it was too small, so I almost didn’t pull it. I am so happy I went with my gut and insisted on trying because it was perfect! It was so visually perfect that I temporarily forgot that price tags were important to look at before falling in love with something! The dress was over budget, so I took it off and kept trying dresses on. No other gown felt as high quality or beautiful and no other gown made me feel the way that one did. I decided to put it back on and try it with a veil and immediately knew that it was the one!
Wedding Dress Shopping at StarDust Celebrations
I brought my mom, my mother-in-law, and my little sister, and when I walked into StarDust, I was in awe at how big it was. I felt confident that I’d be able to find my dress there. When we went upstairs to start picking out which gown I wanted, I was just overwhelmed with excitement at the fact that this day was actually happening. I wasn’t one of those little girls who had dreamed about my wedding dress or what my wedding day would look like and so the excitement didn’t really hit me until I tried on my first gown. I was pretty nervous about someone helping me put on and take off the dresses, but we just talked like we were at coffee, and I felt so comfortable and welcomed. I had the most fun when I got to throw the confetti, though, LOL!
Glam Wedding Aesthetic
We got married in the mountains, but I didn’t want it to have a country-themed type of feel. I wanted glam, fun, excitement and I didn’t want people to feel like they were at someone’s house (it was held at a family member’s residence) I wanted it to feel like a wedding venue! I think we, both of our families/friends, and wedding party did an amazing job setting the day up exactly how I had pictured it.
Those Special Moments
Getting to have *most but not all* of some of the most special and important people of our lives all in the same place, on one of the happiest days of Nick and I’s lives was just the coolest, most unimaginable feeling in the world. We both have friends and family in multiple different states across the country, so that was so special to the both of us.
There are two things that we did for our wedding that I would recommend to every couple. The first, absolutely get a photo booth. Those photos are some of the funniest/goofiest pictures we have with some of our friends and family, and I am so happy that we decided to get one. The second, GET A BALLOON ARCH! I didn’t get a chance to see it before we went down to the reception space and the excitement I felt when I saw that balloon arch was indescribable. We have the reception in a large metal barn and our balloon arch was a 20 x 20 custom arch mixed with gold, blush, and white tones. It was honestly one of my favorite parts of the décor that we had!
