Lacey and Andrew’s wedding at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center was so incredibly heartwarming and lovely. Andrew works as an arborist at the Center, so he helped build the new arboretum — and theirs was the first wedding out there in the trees! Their wedding was sourced by many family and friends — from the tent construction, to the handmade BBQ grilled on-site in new pits, they were everywhere, lending hands, working to make the wedding a wonderful success.
My favorite thing (besides the donuts in lieu of a wedding cake, since Andrew and Lacey got engaged at Ken’s Donuts!) was how casual and happy the entire occasion was. No one really seemed to worry about anything; things just happened organically. Guests arrived by school bus; the drinks weren’t anything froofy, just simple bottles of Topo Chico, Mexican Coke, and Lone Star; there was no cake-cutting or bouquet tossing or garter-snatching. It was just a sweet and intimate celebration, under the trees and a beautiful Texas sunset, on a warm March day. There was joy and happiness everywhere, and it really just… felt amazing.
I can’t share all of my favorite photos from Lacey and Andrew’s wedding, but here are just a few. Congratulations, you two!
