Everyone loves to see pretty pictures from weddings that are loaded with gorgeous details, inspiration, and eye candy. But even more than that, we at Once Wed love to see and share images that capture the emotion and soul of a wedding day – that sweet almost-first-look, the way the groom reacts when he sees his bride walking toward him, the traditions that are included throughout their celebration, the unbridled love that family and friends share for the couple. And today, we get to share all of that and more with you, through Maegan and Jared’s wedding in Texas.

The couple hired a dynamite team of wedding professionals to assist them in creating their day – Mayhar Designs and Bows & Arrows Flowers perfectly executed the bride’s vision. She wanted community blended with loving shades of blue and lavender and an environment that embraced each and every guest with love and welcoming arms. And, in hopes of honoring Jared’s one wish, it was imperative to have a food truck or two.

And, if the bride looks familiar to you, that’s because we featured her bridal session on Once Wed, here!

Read on for more from the bride:
“The ceremony was so sweet and so profound. From the moment I came around the corner and saw Jared’ s teary face for the first time, then hugging my dad after he gave me away, there was just such a joyous peace and thankfulness that stayed throughout the whole day. The sound of the music being played under the trees rustling in the soft breeze– it felt like our own little corner of the world stood still and joined in the moment. Exchanging personal vows was so meaningful, and I pray I’ll always remember the look in Jared’ s eyes as vividly as I do now.” 

More from the wedding planner, Mayhar Designs:
“There are weddings that are beautiful and whose details come together with ease. They are wonderful, and as a planner and designer we always hope for this. But every now and then, there are weddings in which all of the details go away and you get to witness the joining of two sweet souls, who are undeniably meant to spend the rest of their lives together. These weddings are truly magical. This was one of those days.”

This wedding!! Anyone else blown away by the size of those peonies?!? I loved the beautiful, simply tied napkins at each place setting. It is such a small detail that many guests won’t openly notice, but it creates a welcoming atmosphere that whispers “i’ve thought about you. there is a place prepared for you at our table.” Great work, Mayhar Designs + team!!

My wife and I (Angel Springs) were so lucky to be involved in this wedding. Mayhar Designs did an outstanding job of decorating our venue to bring the bride’s ideas to life.

Featured Pre-Wedding Photo Session with Elegant Style

It's customary for Chinese couples to have their wedding photos taken in advance of the wedding, leaving them plenty of time on their wedding days to enjoy the company of their guests and really revel in their celebrations. Today's couple, Janes and Osson, decided to fall suit with this tradition, taking their elegant pre-wedding photos in California (their wedding recently took place in Hong Kong!).
