A Country Chic Wedding at Southfork Ranch in Parker, Texas

Southfork Ranch was the first place Blair McCurdy (23 and a veterinary student) took Alex McCurdy (25 and a public health professional) on their first Dallas date. Little did they know at the time, they’d be getting married there too! Clint Brewer | PHOTO went out of the way to capture every special moment, from Blair’s getting ready in the horse barn to an unexpected double rainbow at the reception. Becca Mercer of Sweet Occasions & Creative Design helped Blair and Alex fill their country chic wedding day with blush, gold and champagne decor to bring a little romance to the rustic locale. Lizzie Bee’s Flower Shop filled all parts of the day with lush arrangements of hydrangeas, garden roses and amaranthus, culminating in a stunning sweetheart table display for Blair and Alex that set the backdrop for their reception. Filled with lanterns draped in string lights, the Southfork Hall reception hall glowed as the newlyweds shared their first dance to “Two Is Better Than One” by Boys Like Girls. And opposite their sweetheart table display, another stand-out detail caught everyone’s attention: Frosted Art created a jaw-droppingly gorgeous wedding cake covered in intricate details, blush sugar flowers and metallic gold and monogram that filled the whole wedding! Everything about Blair and Alex’s day came together seamlessly at this totally Texas ranch. See all of the details below:

Blair wanted her country wedding to feel elegant, and the gold in this invitation suite definitely delivered that feel! It included blush envelopes lined with glittery gold, whimsical gold calligraphy and laurels on ivory paper and a custom monogram to tie everything together—the whole design was nothing short of stunning.
When it was time for Blair to put on her wedding dress, instead of the on-site cottage, she decided to sneak down to the rustic horse barn to get ready. Using her bridesmaids as cover, she donned an A-line gown with a fitted sweetheart neckline beaded bodice, embellished belt and lace scalloping on the ends of the skirt.
The bridesmaids wore short champagne dresses with illusion necklines by Jenny Yoo, and the house party wore blush dresses. The groomsmen went for a more causal look in gray vests and pants by Vera Wang.
Blair attended Woodcreek Church her whole life, so naturally she wanted to marry Alex here! They said "I do" between two tall arrangements of hydrangeas, garden roses and curly willow. A special touch you can't see: Both Blair and Alex have their favorite bible verse written in blue inside their shoes.
Blair's best wedding day advice? "Your wedding day will fly by so fast," she says. "Make sure you slow down and make memories during the day. Take time to remember each special event."
Blair and Alex had a rustic chalkboard painted with important dates and moments from their love story. Milestones included the first time they saw each other, their first date and when they got engaged.
The high white ceilings and brick floor in the Southfork Ranch reception hall was a truly magnificent setting for Blair and Alex's reception. Lanterns wrapped in string lights and overhead bistro lights set the tone for romance, and a big "Dallas" in the backdrop gave the room a truly Texas feel.
Lush arrangements of white hydrangeas, blush garden roses, stock, hanging amaranthus and eucalyptus in tall silver vases decorated the neutral dining tables. Low gold votives, gold chargers and gold chiavari chairs continued the metallic motif.
Blair and Alex's sweetheart table display was nothing short of wow-worthy! It had a bold blush backdrop with their names in gold calligraphy, which matched their metallic gold table linens. White and ivory paper flowers decorated the backdrop, while a pair of lush arrangements including hydrangeas, garden roses and amaranthus in tall gold vessels stood on either side. A leafy garland decorated the top of their dining table along with a gold "Mr. & Mrs. McCurdy" to match the gold votives and a gold "M" hanging in front. They spared no detail here!
Blair and Alex shared their first dance to "Two Is Better Than One" by Boys Like Girls. Beside them, their custom monogram in gold lights shone onto the dance floor.
This five-tiered wedding cake by Frosted Art is simply breathtaking. Tiers of intricate details, flower rosettes and even a single metallic gold tier with Blair and Alex's monogram ties the confection to everything about their wedding. Blush sugar flowers, the newlyweds' monogram and a "Happily Ever After" cake topper complete the cake.
A nod to their alma mater, Alex's groom's cake featured a tier shaped like the gold Texas A&M ring! Chocolate drizzle and chocolate-covered strawberries surrounded the other tiers, with other edible Aggie embellishments to continue the theme.
Though the wedding day was full of memories,  this exceptional moment right outside the reception stood out. Clint Brewer | PHOTO captured Blair and Alex posing for a double rainbow right outside their reception!
