Rebekah and David’s Texas wedding was much more than your typical family affair. Deciding to host their wedding at the microbrewery that the bride’s family was building allowed them to incorporate so many elements making their day incredibly personal and unique.
With the help and guidance from Events by Jules throughout the planning of their wedding day, this couple created a simple and eclectic style with a mix of rustic and industrial flair. A long feasting farm table created a beautiful focal point for the room, and we loved the mix of table styles that created visual interest in the space.
With a gorgeous day of clear blue skies welcoming them for their wedding, we loved how Kortney Boyett Photography captured the joy of Rebekah and David’s day. Rebekah shared so many of the intentional details that made their day so perfect, and we can’t wait for you to see!
Tell us a little a bit about your wedding.
I wanted our wedding to be outdoors, with a garden party type of vibe. I’ve always wanted to be married in the fall, so we set our date initially in October. Due to availability of our close friend who officiated the wedding, we ended up pushing to the first weekend of November. My parents have a small property outside of town in Royse City, TX, and although we did look at a few different venues, we decided that a homemade wedding at my parents’ place suited us best. The colors were an obvious choice to me, navy blue which we both love and blush which tied it into a fall palette nicely. Julie did a great job of filling out the rest of the palette with greys, wood grains and patterns.
What was the most important to the two of you while planning? Was there anything that you chose to splurge on or skip?
Good food and good music were the most important things. We were so blessed to have the food provided by close family friends, so that was already a given. Julie found us a great DJ who was so easy to work with and totally read our style from the start. If there was anything that we really didn’t care about and would have skipped, it would probably be the cake. I don’t really like cake and we had a milk and cookie bar with homemade cookies, but we ended up also getting a small cake in the end, at my mom’s insistence.
What were your favorite parts of the day? (memories and stories)
The ceremony was just perfect. Our close friend Alex officiate at did a great job, our best man played acoustic guitar for the music, the vows were beautiful and everything was just perfect. The reception was amazing too of course, after the toasts and the traditional dances and such, it was basically just a big dance party which is exactly what we wanted. At the send off, since we were in the country and we could, we had a full-out firework show to the song This Will Be by Natalie Cole, and it was magical.
Please describe any DIY, handmade, or personal details.
Oh gosh, where to start! My dad actually put up an entire building for the wedding. It’s being converted into a microbrewery now and I’m excited to see more events there in the future. My mom made all the light fixtures by hand, which were beautiful marbled colored lamps hanging from the ceiling. We DIYed our wedding arch , which was a floral chandelier that we actually made with artificial flower, framed with long white and blush fabric that we hug from tree branches at the ceremony site. The cookies were homemade, the barbecue sauce was homemade by my sister-in-law, and the beer was all brewed by my dad and brother. We asked our best man, who’s in a band with David, to play acoustic guitar for our ceremony, and our friend Alex (who is also in the band) to be our officiant. It made the ceremony very personal and they nailed it.
What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
My mom, and Julie for sure. I am not a very detail-oriented person, and a wedding has a hundred details to keep track of. If I didn’t have my mom’s help and Julie at the helm, we would have just eloped and skipped the whole thing.
Such a fun way that this couple was able to celebrate (and will continue to celebrate) their wedding day at this special location. One of our most favorite details that Rebekah shared was that her father and brother brewed all of the beer for the day. With the space to be used as a microbrewery, it seemed incredibly fitting that they would provide a special brew for the debut of the space.
