A Casual Hill Country Wedding at Old Glory Ranch in Wimberley, Texas
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.
