SWEET BEGINNINGS: Halfway through their freshman year at Texas A&M University, Derek stopped by to meet Meagan, the new girl that had just moved in across the hall. It wasn’t long after the two met that they realized they were in the same economics class, and they began walking to and from campus together every day. Soon, they were inseparable.
PERFECT PROPOSAL: Derek surprised Meagan with an impromptu weekend away to a vineyard estate in Marble Falls, Texas. The morning of their final day, Derek took Meagan on a stroll to revisit the valley of vineyards they had explored the night before. Before she knew it, Derek got down on one knee and proposed; Meagan was so shocked that she asked him to do it again! After she said yes, Meagan spotted both of their families watching from a balcony in the distance, and they all celebrated over a delightful Sunday brunch.
HUES SHE USED: Meagan and Derek planned a vintage glam, garden-themed wedding using shades of blush, ivory and gold, with a hint of dusty gray.
VENDOR LOVE: The couple’s wedding planner, Becky Navarro of Pearl Events Austin, kept everything perfectly organized throughout the entire process. She also went above and beyond when she offered to let Meagan borrow her beautiful Z Gallerie mirror for the bridal suite.
SPECIAL TOUCHES: Meagan and Derek lined the mantle in the dining parlor with old black and white wedding photographs from both sides of their families. This was a very important project for the couple and a special way to include their loved ones who are no longer with them.
SCHOOL SPIRIT: With both the bride and the groom being Texas A&M graduates, it is a tradition to play “The Aggie War Hymn” as Aggie guests drape arms and cross ankles with one another while swaying left to right.
