Stacy and Kyle were married at Kendall Plantation in Boerne, Texas on May 4. “We wanted an open space that could serve as a blank canvas, so we could make it personal to us and our style,” Stacy said. “We also had a lot of out-of-state guests, and we wanted it to represent the hill country and allow them to feel at home.” The bride wore a custom-made satin mermaid wedding gown with a lace corset bodice, accessorized with a birdcage veil, while the groom wore a gray suit, accessorized with Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes and suspenders. “I took a sample gown and had it completely altered . . . I wanted a truly one-of-a-kind,” she said. Bridesmaids wore mix ‘n’ matched short dresses and carried colorful bouquets of roses, billy balls, succulents, ranunculuses, and dianthuses. “The moment my now-husband and I can’t stop thinking about is when we sat down at our dinner table,” Stacy said. “After we were introduced, danced onto the dance floor, and took our seats, I remember he put his hand on my back, and I just took a deep breath, looked around at everyone there, who we loved and cared about, and realized we did it! The nerves were gone, the anxiety was gone, and we could relax and soak it all in.” Reception tables were decorated with white linens, burlap runners, wine bottle centerpieces, and a thank-you note at each place setting. Guests were encouraged to choose a glass for the night for whatever tastes right and take home with them as a keepsake. At the end of the night, the newlyweds exited amongst a sea of sparklers.
