A Rustic DIY Wedding at the Brooks at Weatherford in Weatherford, Texas

Ashley Annick (27 and a calligrapher) and Alec Coston (24 and a medical student) celebrated their wedding at the Brooks at Weatherford in Texas’s picturesque Hill Country. A palette of blush and mint, along with rustic accents such as burlap and antlers, allowed the natural beauty of their venue to shine. “The space was so beautiful, so I didn’t do much to dress it up,” Ashley says. The couple said “I do” in the Brooks at Weatherford’s outdoor chapel. “It gave us the perfect outdoor feeling without having to worry about a rainy-day plan,” Ashley says. The couple created personal DIY touches that gave their wedding day a rustic and sentimental charm—from the bride’s calligraphy and custom-designed stationery to rustic wooden signs and wildflower-inspired floral arrangements. Ashley bought flowers wholesale, and she and her bridesmaids arranged bouquets and table centerpieces themselves. The DIY florals included an array of eucalyptus, pink and oxblood hypericum berries, blush roses, silver brunia, anemones, white ranunculus and maroon poms. —Marissa Hermanson
