Ivory Rose Bride: Larissa

Larissa & Sam said ‘I Do’ during a romantic rustic wedding ceremony surrounded by an intimate group of their closest family & friends. The Texas sky was the cherry on top for this special day.

Some of Larissa’s favorite moments from the big day were saying their vows. When she looked into Sam’s eyes she saw him tearing up. "He’s not the kind of guy to show emotion often, so this was really saying something." she shared. Another favorite moment from the day, was being introduced by the DJ as Mr. & Mrs. to kick off their reception. The couple stood on top of a Juliet balcony with the theme song from Top Gun playing before descending the stairs to their cheering group of loved ones. "Top Gun is one of Sam’s favorite movies, so it made him super happy and felt very epic!" gushed the bride. The amount of love & support the couple felt in that moment was everything.

The biggest piece of advice Larissa had for future brides is to hire a day-of coordinator if your venue doesn’t offer one. She said, “The day really does fly right by and you want to spend every minute relaxing and enjoying yourself, not worrying about what time it is. And you definitely don’t want to start the day stressed about getting everything setup.  It’s a LOT to plan and organize, but always remember that the point is to be starting the next phase of your life together. Make it be the day that you both want it to be and not what other people expect. And it’s okay if you have to make a last minute call to do something different or alter the timeline. It’s still real life and real life isn’t always exactly what we plan. I promise, it’ll feel perfect anyway.”  We couldn’t agree more!

Their big day was made possible thanks to a fabulous team of magic makers!

Florals were done by the bride buying stuff on sale at Joann’s and Michael’s. The only exception was the bouquet, which was bought premade on Amazon.
