When Kristen + Daemaine first started planning their wedding, they imagined having it abroad — in Barcelona, Spain, to be exact. However, after realizing that much of their family wouldn’t be able to attend, they figured out something that worked even better: have a gorgeous wedding at home in Texas, then capture elopement style photographs during their honeymoon in Barcelona. Sounds pretty perfect, right? We thought so, too! We’ll be sharing the incredible shots from Spain by their photographer, Jordan Voth, later today, so be sure to check back in!
The bride tells us Our wedding day truly felt like one giant family reunion. Daemaine + I both love the outdoors so we wanted to find a venue that had a style we both liked, and that was close to home. The place we got married holds a lot of memories for my family because it is where we always went camping together. Both of us are pretty laid-back, so we wanted the day to feel relaxed and everyone to enjoy the outdoors.
Let’s proceed to the party + see their rustic chic wedding at The Retreat At Artesian Lakes in Texas!
Invitations are truly the best way to set the stage for your design scheme + color palette. The bride designed + printed these floral goods from Paper Source.
First look feels!
Kristen’s darling hairpiece is by Twigs & Honey.
Who else is loving the groom’s ensemble? It’s from Zara!
STUNNING. The pops of burgundy in the florals by Maggie with Bramble & Bee are so good!

Recessional: Celebration by Kool & The Gang

We loved that both our families stayed in one big cabin. It was such a great feeling to have everyone together, spending our wedding weekend with the ones we love. During the reception we also surprised my father for his birthday. The whole wedding really had a feel good family reunion vibe. It was perfect.
Picking up the colors in the invitation suite, the bridesmaids wore dresses from WToo.
Enjoy the process and don't get caught up in the details. Let loose, have fun + love hard!
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this cake by Chef Al with Masterful Cakes! The way the florals wrap in a ribbon-like manner across the front is so dreamy.
Congrats Kristen + Daemaine! Make sure to pop back in a few hours to see their gorgeous honeymoon/elopement-inspired images in Barcelona!
