Ceremony & reception: The Addison Grove, Austin

Honeymoon: Thailand

Courtney Lantrip and Brian Holmes’ love story began while they were both attending college in Denton. They were introduced by a mutual friend at the 2010 University of North Texas homecoming game, and the two had an immediate connection. They became best friends, and their love for each other soon grew. One evening, Brian suggested taking sunset photos by the lake next to their newly purchased home, and before Courtney realized what was happening, he took her hand and got down on one knee. She found out later that he had asked her whole family for their blessing. The couple had an elegant Texas Hill Country wedding with a French country feel. Around 150 guests from all over the world joined them for a day of gorgeous Texas spring weather to celebrate their love, enjoying great food and drinks, a photo booth and a wide range of music. Inside the venue, arrangements of ranunculus, roses and peonies adorned the space, and outside, lanterns and birdcages adorned the landscape. The wedding ceremony was held overlooking the pond, and as Courtney and Brian said their vows, fish jumped out of the water, making a special moment even more unforgettable.
