Whimsical Waxahachie Wedding

DIY Weddings

It really shouldn’t come as a surprise that a wedding where the bride used to work for Anthropologie as a display coordinator, would be a gem of a stunner. Then we saw the images that Sara & Rocky captured, and we were beyond sold. From her decor — which she tackled with the help of her parents — to her stunning tiered ruffled wedding gown from BHLDN, we’re loving everything about this wedding. Especially the banner signs Kate and her mother made!

From the photographers, Sara & Rocky: Kate and Cory were married on a rainy day in Waxahachie, Texas. They were married in her church she grew up in, then had their reception in the Chautauqua Auditorium (one of the only ones left). Kate used to work for Anthropologie, so she and her mom & dad made pretty much everything — The LOVE sign, the K & C signs, the drink and cake signs, bottles for flowers, everything!
