When Sarah Williams & Brooks Williams set out to find the venue for their wedding, they wanted a place that fit who they were like a glove. The Cactus Ranch was the beauty of a spot that they had hoped for, allowing them to fulfill their dream for an elevated country wedding. Our beautiful bride allowed her contagious smile to shine, all the while being the perfect accessory to her country chic wedding day look. The A-line wedding dress with sweetheart neckline was the perfect choice, while the textured loosely pinned up do & birdcage veil gave her over all style a chic vintage touch. We're loving this country wedding gone chic & all the lovely little details that made it happen!

Every little detail about this wedding is well put together and perfectly polished, the result… Country Chic at its finest!

Our gorgeous bride has a full generous smile & I love that she took every opportunity to show it off! We love this sweet wedding and how it wears its emotions right on its sleeve!
The Send Off– The sparkler send off is nothing new, but I love the 3 part series of our couple sweet escaping all the while stopping at the end for a stolen moment. I love the pure enjoyment that is clearly visible on their faces & wish this kind of fun time on all future couples going with this kind of send off!
Novella Of The Bride…
We are both very simple people. We love the outdoors, hunting, and fishing. We both work in the oilfield and are trying to get back to East Texas where the pine trees are. We met a little over two years ago and became good friends. We didn't want to date at first but quickly became more interested in the idea of a relationship. We were engaged 9 months later on Brooks' birthday in Gruene TX. We really are the best of friends. We laugh and love constantly.
We really didn't have a specific theme. I tried to keep it as simple as possible. The Ranch really didn't need much work. We chose this location because it was very secluded. We walked in and knew right away it was perfect. The inside and outside was beautiful. The trees and the scenery were beautiful. It was also perfect because we wanted a place where we could let the entire wedding party stay. The place sleeps 25 people and we got it for the entire weekend. This made it a lot easier to set up and take down. I guess we were going for more of a country chic kind of look. Everyone helped SO much. Family and friends. Everyone pitched in so much. I hardly had to do anything. Almost everything was hand made. My mom and my Mother-in-laws helped make most of the decorations. There isn't enough room in here to name everyone who helped out!
The whole thing is kind of a blur. We were so busy the whole time. My favorite moment is when we had our first dance. It was the first time since the whole thing started the day before that we were able to just stop everything and actually talk to each other and ‘be alone'. Even though we were up in front of everyone it was like everything just disappeared for those few moments.
