“Mostly importantly, I would like to talk about our incredible venue. From start to finish, our experience with The Venue at Mari Springs was unlike anything I’ve ever seen! We had the 48 hour package at our venue, so our wedding party and families were able to stay in the Manor. We woke up at the venue and we were able to ease into our time getting ready in the bridal suite. All of my bridesmaids, hair stylists, sisters, and moms were able to get ready comfortably in the bridal suite with enough space to stretch out. We were able to have food and drinks spread out on the kitchen counters, and plenty of space to hang our dresses. After we were dressed, it was time for a first look and bride/groom portraits. The grounds at the Venue at Mari Springs are absolutely breathtaking and I truly believe you will not find anywhere in Texas with such a beautiful property. Because of how large it is, we were able to have our first look far away from the chapel and didn’t have to fear that our guests would see us. We had access to the entire property so spent an hour with our photographer taking photos all around the venue. After that, it was ceremony time. I’ve never felt like more of a princess than when I stepped into the chapel and saw the chandeliers above me. It took my breath away. There was not a dry eye in the room and I think the beauty of the chapel is partly why! After the ceremony, our guests were able to enter the Red Barn for the reception through the side doors so that the beautiful main doors were saved for a dramatic grand entrance for the bride and groom. We spent cocktail hour taking photos in the court yard between the two buildings while our guests ate, drank, and mingled in the barn. Once we entered through the gorgeous doors, our entire party followed us out to the “corral” where we ate dinner and danced under string lights. Once it started to rain outside around 9:30, the party was able to effortless and seamlessly move back inside of the Red Barn and keep dancing under the BIGGEST chandelier I’d ever seen!!!”
“Once the wedding was over and our guests left, our wedding parties and family were able to continue to be together and sleep in the Manor again. I could absolutely not say enough good about the Venue at Mari Springs. They also have an incredible month/day of coordinator who absolutely spoiled us all day and made sure the entire wedding went off without a hitch.”
“My next favorite thing about the entire day was my florals! The Farmer and I is a NEXT LEVEL florist and not to mention the sweetest person I’ve ever met! She completely captured every single piece of my visions and brought all of my floral dreams to life. From ceremony florals to bridal bouquet to centerpieces to welcome sign florals to bar sign florals and so on— you can tell she took her time on each and every piece and poured her soul into each arrangement.”
“Graze and Gala did our charcuterie grazing table and an almost every single one of our guests are still talking about it months later. I heard multiple times that the grazing table was the best part of the night. Meredith, the owner, is extremely flexible, responsive, and seems to genuinely care about you and your wedding from start to finish. She created the most incredible grazing table and I’m so glad we have pictures because I am able to just admire her work! Knowing that the grazing table would be eaten on during cocktail hour and we wouldn’t likely get to see it, Meredith also made us both individual Bride and Groom charcuterie boxes (for free!) and they were waiting in our getaway car at the end of the night. This was so appreciated as we were starving after drinking and dancing!”
Confetti Rentals was also so great to work with! We had our initial consult where we picked out what we wanted, and then we changed our minds what felt like 100 times! Each time, Confetti updated our contract and kept us well informed of the changes they were making. The day off, they showed up on time and we had made some last minute changes. Chris just worked with us and we got it all figured out in the end and it all looked so beautiful!!!
