Jana and Derrick's Spurs Soirée

Jana and Derrick's love story unfolded in a magical tapestry woven with laughter, warmth, and a generous sprinkle of Spurs spirit. As the morning sun painted the hills with hues of gold, the air buzzed with anticipation at a private residence in Spring Branch, Texas.

Jana, radiant in the early light, surrounded herself with the giggles and whispers of her closest friends at the hands of the talented hair and makeup stylists from Mission Style House. Laughter echoed through the air as Lauren with Eclipse Event Co. orchestrated the final details, ensuring the canvas was set for a day that would be remembered for a lifetime.

The path that led them to Hayes Hollow at Hidden Falls – a venue that would witness the symphony of their love. Guided by the visionaries at Eclipse Event Co., the space transformed into a dreamscape. It was a choice they made after looking at numerous venues, and it became evident that no other ceremony site compared to the potential they saw in this hidden gem. Mountain Laurel Floral painted the ceremony/venue with a palette of blooms, bringing to life the dreamy vision Jana had held in her heart.

Jana and Derrick embarked on a journey that unfolded as a finely woven tapestry of intentional details. Every element in their celebration echoed a love deeply rooted in the values of family and tradition. The inspiration for their wedding crest, featuring horseshoes, was drawn from one of Derrick's tattoos, adding a personalized touch that resonated with their shared history. Their cherished fur babies, regarded as family, couldn't be excluded from the festivities and found a delightful place on the wedding koozies and beverage signs and napkins. The bride's radiant smile illuminated the scene as Derrick proudly adorned his grandfather's wedding ring—a poignant and heartfelt tribute to the man who passed down this treasured symbol of commitment. However, the most heartwarming detail emerged in the form of a framed receipt from Jana and Derrick's inaugural date, a sweet sentiment Derrick had carefully preserved and gifted to Jana on their wedding day. These thoughtfully intertwined details painted a portrait of a love story, where each nuance held significance and contributed to a celebration filled with joy and meaning.
