Wedding Inspiration

Alexis Kates & Ryan Merrill


Alexis and Ryan’s clean wedding aesthetic with neutral tones and a touch of boho is absolutely dreamy! The couple initially met in 2017 through mutual friends. A whole year passed without seeing one another, but fate decided to reunite the two. While both randomly out in Fort Worth, Alexis and Ryan ran into one another and exchanged numbers. Three nights later, the two went on their first date, and from that night on, they knew they had found their forever. Ryan got down on one knee in Alexis’ hometown of Morgan City, Louisiana. Her family was able to watch the entire special moment through the window of their home and celebrated the rest of the weekend with the beautiful bride-to-be!


Alexis and Ryan said, “I do,” on a beautiful September evening at Firefly Gardens. Looking like an absolute princess, Alexis wore a Romona Keveza gown from Bridal Boutique After having their first touch, Alexis was eager to run down the aisle and meet Ryan at the altar. Alexis said, “Watching Ryan see me for the first time as a Bride was the most special moment. I could see the love and happiness all over his face.” After becoming Mr. and Mrs. Ryan Merrill, they entered the beautiful reception space. Posh Couture Rentals provided neutral rentals, while Satin Pavement created custom signage to create a dreamy reception. In addition, Butterfly Cakery added to the neutral tones with a classic four-tiered cake with pampas grass detailing. It was a spectacular night for the Merrill’s, thanks to their fantastic wedding planner, Blissful Weddings & Events.
