Wedding: May 7, 2016

Ceremony & reception: The Winfield Inn, Kyle

Honeymoon: Kauai, Hawaii

Although neither Carolyn Volk nor Mason Brooks were into sports, a baseball game changed their lives forever. They attended a Round Rock Express game with friends and were sitting at the end of the row, thinking it was going to be a long four hours. Instead, they hit it off and talked the whole time. A year later, Mason popped the question at the Zilker Park overlook, and then the couple celebrated at dinner with both families. The next day, he surprised her with a full day of events with her best friends (who had come into town for the occasion), including brunch, shopping and manicures, followed by an engagement party with all of their friends. Their wedding venue, a gorgeous white mansion on a spacious green lawn with stately oak trees, set the tone for their wedding. Sitting areas were set up on the lawn, and the couple used neutral colors and greenery to accentuate the natural beauty. One of their favorite moments during the ceremony was having both of their families come up and pray over them. They loved being surrounded by their families before exchanging vows. Although many guests attended the event, Carolyn raves about the intimate feel, like a dreamy backyard wedding.
