A Rustic DIY Wedding at Creekside in Driftwood, Texas

Hailey Voelker (31 and a health-care analyst) and Tyler Robinson (35 and a petroleum engineer) decided that the most important thing at their wedding was for it to be a big party that was reflective of who they are as a couple. “We are very low-key, not super romantic and really just love to be around our friends and family,” the bride says. Creekside in Driftwood, Texas inspired the rustic glam style of their Texas Hill Country celebration. About halfway through the planning process, Hailey went to a bridal expo, where she met Cassie from WhiteCurtin Design. “After my first conversation with her, I knew she got my vision, and she was the perfect person to make it happen,” the bride says. “I was planning to do a lot of the decorating myself, but Cassie kindly relieved me of that burden.” She created all the signage, helped design the RSVP and info cards in the invitation suite, the stencils on the groom’s cakes and all the flower work, including on the wedding cake. The bride hand-dyed blue vases and designed the crossed-arrow logo that symbolized friendship. “Not only are the groom and I friends first, but our wedding would bring together friends and family from all over Texas,” Hailey says. The arrow motif was present throughout the wedding, appearing in the tie clips the bride gave to the groom, the best man and officiant, the invitations, the thank-you bags, all the signs and the cake toppers and decor. Katherine O’Brien Photography, who beautifully captured the wedding details, helped the couple relax for their photos together. “She captured all the natural moments that really speak to who we are as a couple,” Hailey says. “We enjoy life, making each other laugh, and honestly enjoyed the party of our life -- our wedding.”
