Smithville Texas Wedding

Smithville Texas Wedding. Samantha and Jake planned a beautiful December wedding at the Buescher State Park located in Smithville, Texas. And while their color palette incorporated traditional green and red holiday colors, they also infused rustic hues and touches to create a cozy, elegant feel that warmed every heart.

The paper suite for their wedding was also elegantly detailed and thoughtful. They wrote their vows in personalized books. And when it came to the invitations, they stuck with green envelopes with gold script and white invitations with gray text for an understated nod to the lively colors we often see in December.

Samantha’s gown was perfect for the outdoor ceremony. She chose a lace fit-and-flare style with small cap sleeves and a sheer back. In lieu of a veil, she wore her hair in a classic updo with small floral touches.

Her bouquet was vibrant and full of cheer with red calla lilies, red dahlias, burgundy scabiosa and more.

After saying “I do,” they strolled away to take their first photos as husband and wife. With the tall grasses swaying by their sides, they wrapped their shoulders in flannel blankets to capture the winter season on camera.
