Elizabeth + Delio wanted their wedding celebration to be like family and friends gathering for a long, relaxed holiday weekend, when everyone gets to spend time together catching up with one another and creating new memories. Haven River Inn in the Texas hill country was the perfect place for games, a picnic, swimming, porch rocking, and sunset watching. Everyone brought their tennis shoes to participate in a round of basketball games which is a favorite of the bride and groom – how fun!
The wedding took place in a grove of pecan trees down the hill from the inn. Everyone gathered on the porch to watch Elizabeth and Delio as they walked down first and, then, the guests went down the hill for the ceremony under the arching trees.
Liz + Del study English and Linguistics so books adorned the table as well as home made cakes.
Dinner followed on the inside porch while food was served on the outside porch. The menu was designed to include Texas bar-be-que and Dominican sides. Tables were dressed in black and white checked cloths and set with antique green books, square white glass vases with green spider mums, a white hydrangea and green pods plus bowls of limes and green apples, homemade cakes on cake stands, bottles of Jarritos and mercury glass candle holders. Napkin rings were Elizabeth and Delio’s wedding invitations that they created themselves.
