Brianna Hinojos (23 and an elementary school teacher) and Barrett Robinson (26 and a high school teacher and football coach) planned a classic summer wedding with a soft white, gold and blush color palette. When it came to choosing a location to tie the knot, the Lakeridge Country Club in Lubbock, Texas seemed like the ideal spot. The sweeping lawns, lush trees and beautiful blue ponds and waterfall fit perfectly with the wedding’s elegant, summer theme. “We also chose this location because Barrett grew up playing golf and over our six years of dating, he also taught me to golf,” says Brianna. “It’s now something that we enjoy doing together in the summer.”

Before heading to the clubhouse for a night of dinner and dancing, the couple exchanged vows under a lavish floral wedding arch overlooking the golf course. Rose petals ran the length of the aisle and cascading arrangements of wildflowers and airy fabric added a romantic, whimsical touch to the end of alternating rows. As guests made their way to their seats, they were greeted a series of wooden signs handcrafted by Brianna’s grandfather.

Though the reception took place indoors, the newlyweds and their guests continued to profit from the beautiful scenery; large windows dotting the room gave way to views of the vibrant green golf course and quaint ponds. With the help of Carol Gary at Dayspring Designs, the couple brought the beauty of the summer season indoors with elegant arrangements of hydrangeas, lilies, baby’s breath, orchids, roses and hyacinths in high and low styles. Elements like burlap linens and votive candles worked to create a fusion of rustic charm and romance. As a nod to Brianna’s Mexican heritage, her grandmother made hundreds of biscochos, Mexican wedding cookies, for guests to enjoy after dinner. Barrett’s close friend and DJ kept the dance floor packed all night long and a custom photo booth kept gave family and friends a fun way to remember the evening. A tip for the taking from Brianna and Barrett: "Remember what weddings are about. Don't stress over little details; Have fun with the planning because it goes by fast and remember that you're marrying the love of your life, which is what it's all about, celebrating your love for one another."

The florists at Dayspring Designs infused the clubhouse at the Lakeridge Country Club with the beauty of the summer season with a mix of high and low centerpieces overflowing with full ivory and blush blooms. The tall arrangements featured fluffy hydrangeas, hyacinth and curly willow displayed in high hurricane vases.
For the low centerpieces, an all-white assortment of florals, like hydrangeas, orchids, lilies and more, filled round vases laced with curly willow and were displayed a top burlap linen for a rustic-meets-romantic feel.
Brianna went classic when it came to her bridesmaids’ wedding day style. She had the girls don matching bush chiffon gowns with strapless sweetheart necklines from David’s Bridal, which they accessorized with layered pearl necklaces and nude pumps.
Before kicking off a fun-filled night of dinner and dancing, Brianna and Barrett exchanged vows in an outdoor ceremony overlooking the Lakeridge Country Club golf course. The pair said their "I do's" standing under an ornate wedding arch draped in lush greenery and full pink flowers.
Brianna and Barrett’s ceremony decor was all about elegance and romance. The aisles were lined with soft rose petals and garden-inspired bundles of pastel florals displayed atop airy white fabric, giving the scene a whimsical flair.
Taking the heat into consideration when planning their ceremony, Brianna and Barrett decided on a fan format for their programs. “They matched our wedding invitations that were designed by Hodgepodge Design in Lubbock,” says Brianna. “Because it was a summer wedding, we thought this would help cool guests off during the ceremony.”
Brianna’s mermaid gown from the Vera Wang White collection was the picture of feminine elegance. The fitted satin bodice featured draped detailing for a touch of texture and intrigue, while the ethereal tulle skirt exuded romance. For a subtle hint of glitz, Brianna added a pearl sash from David's Bridal to the waist.
Carol Gary of Dayspring Designs perfectly captured the day’s romantic, summer vibe in her design for Brianna’s bouquet. The pale pink and ivory arrangement was filled with full peonies, hydrangeas, roses, lisianthuses, baby’s breath and dusty miller. “Carol wrapped my great-great-great-grandmother’s ivory lace handkerchief that my grandmother let me borrow around my bouquet,” says Brianna.
Instead of a traditional wedding band, Brianna had a white gold diamond wrap added to her 1 carat diamond engagement ring. Barrett opted for a classic yellow gold band that had belonged to his great-grandfather, making the ring that much more sentimental.
Drawing on the couple’s elegant, romantic inspiration, Hodgepodge Designs in Lubbock, Texas created a formal invitation suite with undeniable old world charm for their mid-summer affair. Decorative flourishes, a palette of soft neutral hues and classic script lent the stationery a formal, yet customized feel.
