Even though it’s in the middle of nowhere; 3 hours from the nearest airport, there’s something big happening in Marfa, TX. This small town in West Texas is a bit of a folkloric hub, with art installations, concerts, cultural festivals + mythic Marfa lights. It’s no surprise that a stunningly stylish couple like Tiera + Daniel would be enchanted.
T + D share their wedding vision: Our inspo was backyard chic; we wanted a modern take on ‘Father of the Bride’! We tried to sprinkle in touches of our relationship into small details of the wedding – like our love for the Beatles, and Dairy Queen. Growing up in West Texas, DQ served as a communal place and where my family worked, so it was the most obvious choice for a late night treat to keep the party going. We also had a deep appreciation for the city of Marfa. We wanted the funkiness of that town to be the canvas for our modern affair.
Wedding guests flew across the country, and Bash Co + Events gathered their favorite vendors from Dallas and traveled across the desert for T + D’s modern, magical day.
Peyton Rainey Byford captured it for us. Let’s head to Marfa:
Black + White Out
This ultra mod b + w stationery suite by Bare Ink Co. so stylishly contrasts the desert setting + black tie vibe.
First Look in Marfa
The Coolest Pair
Tiera shares the story behind her STUNNING modern wedding gown by Chosen by One Day: I knew from day one that I wanted my dress to be from LOHO Bride in LA. The bridal store was my vibe and it turns out when I started researching dresses, the first dress designer I felt drawn to was Chosen by One Day – and luckily they had a trunk show at Loho! Of course the dress I chose was picked by none other than my maid of honor and was something I thought I would never wear. But when I put it on, I just knew it was the one that I wanted Daniel to see me in!
We see you, guys. Nothing can top a classic b + w look for the groom. Daniel + gents wore suiting from The Black Tux.
Mythic Marfa Ceremony
Our bus ride with our bridal party and moms was filled with anticipation that ended with a majestic view of our ceremony on La Tierra.
What’s that? A rich, white ceremony semicircle growing up from the Marfa desert. We love this modern floral design by Open Road Florals.
All You Need is Love
Her dotted, cathedral-length Pronovias veil will be flowing through our minds all day – wow!
Processional: Harvest Moon by Neil Young
Recessional: All You Need is Love sang by Daniel's Grandmother and our good friend Nic Shute on the trumpet
First Dance: Something by The Beatles
Style doesn’t stop – we see those silver cowgirl boots!
Desert Vibe Reception
We’re loving this western boho lounge space! And, of course, the neon sign, too.
T + D throwing out more modern style with this mineral water escort board at their reception – encouraging guests to live la vida topo!
White Out: A Modern Backyard Dinner
Do not stress the small stuff - the day turns out more perfectly than you could have ever imagined. It's a marathon not a race!
Tat it up! T + D asked guests to make love permanent with this fun tattoo bar.
Finally, T + D share: We could not have had our dream wedding without our amazing vendors who brought our vision to life perfectly! Our amazing guests provided the energy and really made the weekend unforgettable!
Byford Films created a modern, cinematic wedding video for T + D to enjoy for stylish years to come!
