Rustic Purple DIY Wedding in Texas Tuesday, August 26, 2014 ~ 11:45 a.m.

Before I get to their rustic DIY wedding in Texas, Karlie and Jimmy have the sweetest proposal story that I simply MUST share! "When my grandmother passed away, I had a really hard time sleeping," described Karlie. "[Jimmy] started counting me to sleep. He would start at one, count up to ten, count back down, then start all over. As many times as needed until I fell asleep, and it worked beautifully.


"A month after he moved [to San Antonio], we met up in San Angelo, and he brought me a sweet little recordable teddy bear. I was thrilled! He had recorded himself counting so when I went back home, I could sleep! Of course, I curled up in the hotel bed and pushed the little paw and it started with, 'Karlie, I love you so much. I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together! One, Two, Three...' and then there was a pause and 'Will you marry me?!' WHAT?!?! I threw the blankets off and turned around to face him, and there he was on one knee holding a little black box with the ring."


This past May, Karlie and Jimmy were married at a beautiful outdoor venue beneath the trees in San Antonio, Texas. Captured by Lauren Lindley Photography, most of the wedding details were DIY, including everything from the wedding stationery, to the charming bouquets and centerpieces. Karlie chose to use hydrangeas, which were her grandmother's favorite flower, and lavender, which is her favorite. Some parting advice from the bride... "Stop looking after you make a decision -- about anything and everything. There are SOOO many choices out there, it's easily overwhelming. Do your research and homework beforehand, make the decision and move on. This is a piece of advice I have to continue to use. In our house, it's kind of an inside joke. We say, 'You've found the dress, move on,' but now our 'dress' is a new couch, car, rug, or paint color. Ha!"

Rustic Purple Wedding theme is much more inspirational! Love the couple and the wedding party members who compliment each other in their best attires. Moreover the bride's maids look more charming and bring out the sweetest moments along with the color of wedding theme.
