Wedding Guide


A Very Sweet Texas Vineyard Wedding

With event planning by Jen Rios Weddings and gorgeous captures from Sami Kathryn Photography, today's vineyard wedding is a total swoon-fest. Lush florals from R. Love Floral were over-the-top gorgeous and the bride's wedding day look? So absolutely stunning! 

Dove Ridge Vineyard made the most beautiful backdrop with its gorgeous grounds and picturesque setting. The perfect mix of vintage and modern vibes — we can't wait for you to see all of the sweetest moments from Garrett and Lexi's day.

From the bride: "Garrett and I met during the 5th grade. He was always picking on me - now he says that was his way of "flirting." We were friends for a very long time, some years we were closer than others, and then we finally decided to make it official our senior year of high school."
"We made it through five plus years of long distance because of different universities and first jobs, but I'm so happy that we went through all of it together because I think it made our wedding and our marriage that much sweeter!"

"Going into venue tours, I really had no idea what I wanted. I ended up touring five venues in one weekend right after I got engaged, and I picked ones that were all super different."
"Dove Ridge ended up being my last stop, and when we pulled up, I instantly fell in love with it! It's kind of like finding the love of your life - when you know, you know."

"What I loved so much about the venue was the picturesque view, the large space to accommodate our guests, and I loved that it was such a clean slate to design with."
"My inspiration for my decor was light, airy, and very English garden like. I love everything blue and white, especially ginger jars, so I knew I wanted to incorporate lots of them in my wedding design! Between my mom, sister and I, we had quite the collection."
"My favorite part of weddings is the design details, so I had so much fun incorporating what I love most into my wedding design."
"I feel like your wedding should be a representation of yourself, and I feel like my wedding planner, Jen, helped me incorporate my personality into my wedding day!"

"Besides marrying the love of my life, my favorite part of the wedding day was seeing all of the planning come together! We had been planning the wedding for a year, so everything that I had to envision in my head was right before me!"
"Given the 2020 climate, it was a challenging time to plan a wedding, so it really meant the world to me to have the wedding day I had always dreamed of no matter what! It was the most perfect day, and I couldn't have asked for more!"
"My advice to brides on planning and the day itself is just to soak in every single moment and enjoy it! During the planning process, I was so in my head about getting everything on my list checked off that I now feel like I didn't savor every moment!"

"On your wedding day, take a moment to look around and soak it all in. Ask for a moment to yourself at some point during the day, even if it's only a couple of minutes!"
"I was so surprised with how quickly the day flew by! As for advice on design and vendors, pick a design that's unique to YOU and what you love!"
"It's so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing, but if you hire vendors that get to know you on a personal level, they will be able to create a wedding for you like no one else!"


"As for vendors, do your research! Hire ones that you know you can trust for your vision, but let them do the work for you. They are in the wedding industry for a reason, so let them use their experience and imagination to create a wedding for you like never seen before! I promise you, you won't regret it, and your wedding will be the one all your friends are talking about!"
