Natural Texas Hill Country Wedding at Riven Rock Ranch in Comfort, Texas
Alycia Brown (25, editor in chief of a media company) and Zach Curtis (28, founder and CEO of virtual tutor finder company) met in New York City at a music internship in Rockefeller Center. They quickly became good friends and began spending a lot of time writing music together. Five months after they started dating, Zach told Alycia he had a song he had written about their relationship. The bridge of the song sang, “if tonight you just say yes…,” at which point he got on one knee and asked Alycia to marry him. The couple wed on a hill in Comfort, Texas, overlooking the countryside at sunset. Every element of Alycia and Zach’s wedding fell together beautifully with a soft color palette of blush, mint and ivory combined with rustic wood and burlap elements. They decorated the ceremony and reception with lots of garden roses, hydrangeas, anemones, dahlias and baby’s breath; no two floral arrangements were the same. “I chose this aesthetic because Zach and I don’t like anything flashy or fancy—we wanted our wedding to be naturally beautiful and inspiring,” says Alycia. At the cocktail hour and reception, guests enjoyed Texas beers and wines and danced to Alycia’s dad’s old band on the beautifully lit pavilion. Instead of a wedding cake, guests chose from cupcakes of three local flavors: Shiner Bock Chocolate, Super Peanut Butter and Magnolia Bakery Vanilla. Alycia and Zach sent guests home with Reese’s peanut butter cups in burlap bags and and drove into the night in a bright yellow Corvette.
