Flashback Fridays – Mr. & Mrs. Ford, a Wedding at Willowood Ranch

Flashback to March 9, 2014 — The day that Ashley married Saer.

The rehearsal dinner was held the night before at one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the town Ashley grew up in.

It was a great time for the bridal party and immediate family to meet each other for those of us who did not already know everyone that would be part of the wedding. 

Afterwards the bridesmaids all went back to Ashley’s house for a final sleepover before the big day!

I casually walked around in my DIY ‘Matron of Honor’ white T … just to make sure everyone knew.

Subtle, no?

The next morning we had a SUPER CRAZY EARLY wake up call since we all needed to get our hair done and it was a mid-day wedding!  I don’t know what it is exactly about weddings but it seems that there is never quite enough time.

We were so lucky that Alex, the groom’s sister, does hair and makeup for a living! She’s pretty amazing and recently moved to New York to pursue her dreams, you should check out her site.

Ashley gave each of the bridesmaids matching eggplant/amethyst crystal bracelets (her wedding color) and pearl necklaces – it was such a thoughtful gift!  And one we could wear right away!

And don’t let me forget about the CUTE name hangers!

Once we were ready we rushed over to the church and tried to stay busy (and calm!) in the upstairs waiting area.

The venue was Willowood Ranch and it was absolutely beautiful!  Ashley’s photographer, Rachel Meagan, was amazing.  Professional and fun she was even able to get us to cooperate when the weather started out blisteringly cold and we didn’t want to stand outside in our short dresses!  If you like the photos I’m going to share below, please check out her website for even more!

I almost got Mike to do that for our wedding – but Saer ordered a custom suit from Indochino where you can pick the style, lining and even add a custom message like your wedding date!!

Becky Evans of NTF Designs was the florist – she did Mike and my wedding as well and she is fantastic!  If you are in the North Texas area you really should give her a call!

Can’t seem to get everyone smiling and looking at the same time – that’s life!

Ashley and I worked before the wedding to do a bunch of custom signs – it’s the small details y’all 😉

And since they’re Mr. and Mrs. FORD it only made sense to have THIS as the groom’s cake!
