Rhiannon and Russell tied the knot at a garden-esque venue called The Springs. Their magical day featured a vintage garden theme and lots of greenery with pops of turquoise, cream, gold, champagne and blush.

Q: Where did you have your wedding?
“My husband, Russell, and I chose The Springs in New Braunfels, in Stonehaven Hall. Before we chose The Springs, we had a different venue in mind that was closer to home. I had my heart set on it, but when we went on the tour, I found out that there was no place for my groom to get ready while myself and my bridal party had a lavish on-site cabin. That just didn’t sit right to me. It’s his day, too! Upon touring The Springs and seeing the gorgeous bride and groom “getting ready” suites among The Springs’ other gorgeous features, I was sold. It meant a lot to me that he would feel special on our day!”
Q: Pick the best part of the day.
“I have to pick just one?! It was truly the best day of my life. I loved exchanging handwritten vows with my groom in front of our most treasured friends and family. I loved having a “first look” with my dad, and surprising my mom with a mother-daughter dance. Most of all, I loved the feeling of looking over at Russell throughout the day and thinking, “I am the luckiest woman alive right now!”
Q: What made you choose Azazie for your bridesmaids dresses?
“I felt very strongly about quality, price point, and options when it came to my girl’s dresses. Azazie surpassed all of my expectations. My bridesmaid’s dresses were all custom sized, tailored beautifully, and clearly made from high-quality fabric. And, they were the best priced dresses bar none! I also appreciated the selection that my girls had. I chose to do mismatched dresses because all bodies are different and I wanted my bridesmaids to feel beautiful and unique. Their dresses totally matched their personalities! Azazie made this one of the easiest choices I made throughout the wedding process!”
Q: Where did you find Azazie?
“Pinterest! Sigh. Pinterest is life.”
Q: Any advice for brides-to-be?
“We chose to have our wedding on a the first Monday of Spring Break. Most of our friends and family (including myself being a college student!) had the holiday automatically off AND having our wedding on a weekday meant a crazy savings on the cost of our venue. In fact, the savings paid for our entire flower budget! Also, include your future partner in the planning process. I think it’s easy to get swept away in this crazy world of glitter and tulle that we have dreamed of for years, but don’t forget that it is their day, too! Lastly, your wedding day is going to fly by. Take a few moments to yourself to just sit, be thankful, and take it all in.”
Q: How was the wedding planning process for you?
“Our wedding was smack-dab in the middle of my final semester of college, so it was more than a little stressful! But, we had 13 months to plan the wedding and we did most of it over the summer while I was on summer break. Those 3 months or so gave us the time to hire most of our vendors. It worked out so well for us and we are so thankful for that. In addition, Russell and I had an amazing support system of friends, family, and extremely professional vendors. We could never be able to say ‘thank you’ enough to everyone who made our wedding day so amazing!”
Q: Final thoughts?
“I know how stressful it all can seem. When things feel overwhelming, just remember WHY you and your partner chose this chapter in your lives. It isn’t about the dress or the flowers, I can assure you. It’s about building a life with the person you love. Everything else is just a bonus!”
