As you get ready for a weekend filled with planning, we know you'll be searching for fresh and fun wedding inspiration. Enter: Our real weddings video channel. We've compiled countless love stories from across the country (and beyond!), each with its own unique style and aesthetic. Every week we take our readers behind the scenes of one of our favorite new videos, and today we can't stop gushing over Stephanie and Cody's fun-filled winter wedding in Austin, Texas.
The McKellars joined the bride and groom for a quirky celebration at Brazos Hall, where they celebrated with friends and family in a party that truly spoke to who they are as a couple. From their fashion — can we talk about the groom's incredible hunter green velvet suit jacket?! — to the punchy-hued florals in their ceremony and reception, Stephanie and Cody chose details that reflected their unique style. And while there's no way you would have been able to convince us to change out of that incredible beaded wedding dress, we're obsessed with the long-sleeve cocktail gown that Stephanie changed into for the reception.
With Austin as the backdrop for their big day, it's only natural this pair put a major emphasis on great music. Their live band kept the dance floor packed all evening long. As another fun twist, Stephanie and Cody projected a vintage dance video on one of the reception walls to inspire their friends and family to show off their own moves.
The night closed out with a sparkler exit before the couple hopped into a vintage car for their final getaway.
