There’s something so relaxed and romantic about the lake – especially if it’s where you’ve spent most of your time together, like this couple did. Kalie and Steven’s whimsical, neutral wedding at Lake Travis is like a scene out of your favorite movie. Elegant yet fun, simple yet stunning, really everything you could want in a wedding day. You’ll love watching this sweet pair tie the knot below. And don’t miss their photographer, Hannah Mayson’s story of the day where she shares the unique details they incorporated.
What happens when the cool kids on the block get married? They have their wedding on a lake, surprise guests with a late night ice cream sandwich truck, change into Common Projects sneakers for the reception… and leave on a moped.
Throughout their relationship, Kalie and Steven have probably spent more weekends on the lake than not, so when it came time to plan their wedding the decision was simple. They wanted a relaxed atmosphere that made everyone feel warm and welcome – what better way to do that than next to your favorite lake and under huge oak trees. “The aesthetic I had in mind when designing my wedding was minimal and romantic,” said Kalie. “We hung drapes and greenery from the trees to catch the wind and our amazing florist, Amy of Earl Grey Floral, filled huge terra cotta pots with flowers to outline the ceremony.”
With bridesmaids in mismatched blush and neutral Show Me Your Mumu gowns, and the adorable flower girl in a Bhldn dress, the color palate fit the vision perfectly. Along with Kalie’s delicate jewelry and taupe Vince shoes, her flowy Leanne Marshall gown added to the subtle romance and whimsy of the day.
After saying their vows in front of family and friends (and their precious pup, Posy), Kalie and Steven invited guests to enjoy the crisp evening under a canopy of trees and twinkle lights while they made a little wardrobe change. Being shoe fanatics, of course they had his and hers Common Projects sneakers to wear to the dance floor. “My best advice to future brides is to make everything personal. If a tradition doesn’t feel fitting for you, think twice before you automatically incorporate it. Your wedding day should be unique to you!”
After toasts, dancing, and a surprise visit by a food truck serving ice cream sandwiches, the couple made their grand exit in their own special way: dancing all the way down the sparkler lit aisle (singing every word to Macklemore’s hit song “Downtown”) where they got on a moped adorned with cans and sped off into the night. Truly, a night to remember!
