Sarah + Clay’s Circle S Ranch Kansas Wedding:

Sarah + Clay met at Texas A&M University, went to a chili fest, that was more of a beer fest, had an awkward conversation about toes (Clay!) and somewhere along the way fell in love.  What made their wedding so special is that it was truly a tribute to their personal love story.  During a beautifully intimate ceremony they invited everyone present along on that journey as their story was recounted from meeting to the present.  It’s no surprise that all of the highlights of their relationship became an integral part of the celebration.  We absolutely love when a couple make the biggest day of their lives about the moments and people that led them there.  Sarah and Clay, thank you for trusting us to tell your story and to capture the moments that will help you to tell it over and over again.

Huge hug and congrats again! xx Melanie + Rick

“You Are The Best Thing” song and lyrics by Ray LaMontagne

We loved the understated, natural look of Sarah’s bouquet with just a subtle amount of color from lavenders and muted purples.

Sarah+ Clay had a beautiful outdoor ceremony near a creek where they shared their own vows.  A friend officiated and shared the delightful (and humorous) story of how they met and fell in love.

Favorite part of the day:

Clay -The ceremony. The weather and the sunlight were perfect. Sarah looked beautiful. The music was great, the vows were great, everything was perfect. It was better than I had imagined in my mind. I’ll never forget it.
 Sarah- The ceremony. I really enjoyed sharing our love story with our friends and family. It really felt personal and “like us”. Including beer was a must. The weather lucked out, too!

They toasted their nuptials with beers from their home states and did their special  toast.  (I mean, how cute are these two?)

Why number your tables when you can name them after cool local bars from your college town?!  Super fun idea guys!

Sarah + Clay entered with the same music that the Texas A&M University (TAMU) football team uses to come in, along with a stuffed reville, the TAMU mascot.
