Kayden and Stephen’s modern rustic wedding at Hotel Drover is full of bright Texas wildflowers and terracotta details. The couple met at Dartmouth College in 2012. “A big Yankee city-slicker,” Stephen fell completely in love with Kayden, “a southern blonde girl.” Throughout their college years, Kayden and Stephen often traveled to Texas and Chicago, meeting and becoming a part of each other’s families. After years of dating, Stephen proposed to Kayden while in Texas, visiting her family. Stephen decided to throw Kayden off by taking her ring shopping on the day of their proposal. Kayden said, “it did the trick, leaving me a touch melancholy while trying on rings knowing that he wasn’t proposing while we were home in Texas.” However, hours later, Stephen got down on one knee in the Dallas Botanical Gardens and proposed. Of course, Kayden said, “YES,” and the two began planning their modern rustic wedding.

 

Kayden and Stephen hosted their wedding weekend in the heart of the historic Fort Worth Stockyard at Hotel Drover. The couple’s wedding showed all of their out-of-town guests the modern rustic charm of Texas. The wedding festivities began with a ceremony aisle lined with bright Texas florals. Kayden recalls being nervous before the ceremony, but all the nerves left once she locked eyes with Stephen and saw him tearing up. After the couple “I do,” they made their way into the modern rustic reception space. Luxurious details and a rustic charm space created the perfect modern rustic wedding. Posh Couture Rentals absolutely nailed each element, bringing the couple’s dreams to life. In addition, we love the unique seating chart the couple used. Guests found their table numbers on cactus planters at the reception entrance. How fun is this! Finally, if you love this wedding as much as us you’ll want to keep scrolling to see all the images Opal & Onyx Photography captured. Cheers!

 

 

Kayden and Stephen’s Favorite Wedding Memory:

“The moment I locked eyes with Stephen down the aisle. We were both so beyond happy and felt so lucky to have found each other that neither of us could hold it together. Thank goodness we weren’t ugly criers that day.”
