Sarah Bryan and Bruce Hallett wanted a totally Texas wedding, and Old Glory Ranch in Wimberley, Texas, was the perfect place to make it happen. The quiet, intimate ceremony spot next to the Blanco River and shaded by cypress trees couldn’t have been prettier, but it was the rustic barn reception venue that won them over. Sarah got married in her cowboy boots, of course, and arrived to the ceremony in the back of a 1954 pickup truck, which set the tone for a comfortable and casual wedding style. Sarah and Bruce went with a natural palette of yellows, blues and greens to match the Hill Country setting. A standout detail? For their unity ceremony, Sarah and Bruce had a unity beer. Sarah poured a beer from her home state of Texas, while Bruce poured a beer from Vermont to represent his home state. (Their advice for couples who want to do this: Pour slowly to avoid foam.) Following a barbecue and Tex-Mex dinner by Pappas Bar-B-Q—including an avocado bar—everyone danced the night away to local artist Chris Story Band wearing red, white and blue Texas party beads from Sarah and Bruce. See the sweet details, captured by Debra Gulbas Photography, below.

Sarah's bouquet looked as if she had just walked through a field and swept it up on her way to the ceremony. The arrangement of white and yellow blooms looked a little wild and matched her natural wedding theme.
Sarah's bridesmaids wore short, canary yellow dresses in different styles for a light and comfortable look. Their bouquets, which included yellow daisies and baby's breath with touches of blues and greens, had a wildflower feel.
This wedding arch, covered in yellow and white flowers with lots of greenery, framed the aisle entrance to Sarah and Bruce's outdoor Hill Country wedding.
One of the many great things about a wedding at Old Glory Ranch in Wimberley, Texas, is that it has this beautiful spot on the property next to the Blanco River, which was exactly where Sarah and Bruce knew they wanted to say their vows.

Bruce kept his fashion comfortable and casual with a light gray suit and a blue-and-yellow-checkered tie. He also wore a simple yellow flower boutonniere.

Sarah and Bruce's table numbers looked like rustic metal cattle brands, which couldn't have been better for their truly Texas wedding.

Sarah wore a beautiful strapless Liancarlo dress with a fitted sweetheart bodice, embellished belt and a delicate ruffled skirt. Her style allowed her to be comfortable outdoors and dance all night at the reception—plus, she wore cowboy boots to go with the Texas theme.
