//Words by Andrea + Chris We met on a hot summer's day at high school band camp...ah, so romantic!
In high school we both played saxophone in band so consequently we were around each other a lot. It did not take much time before we were sitting next to each other at every football game and soon enough became best friends. After high school, we both came to Austin to attend The University of Texas and immediately fell in love with this weird city. Austin has become home for us and we are so excited to start our marriage in the best city in the world.
I love Texas and I love vintage decor! I had a huge list of venues I wanted to check out in the central Texas area and after visiting Vista West Ranch with Chris, we knew immediately that it was where we wanted to get married.
My grandma was always a huge collector of antiques and even owned her own antique store in Amarillo, Texas. My whole life I have been inspired by her love of old and beautiful things and even have become a bit of a collector myself. All my centerpieces included either vintage books or glass from our combined collections. My grandma passed away in January and it was so sad she could not physically be there to witness our marriage, but it was so special to still have a part of her there with us on our wedding day.
Chris and I got engaged during my last year of nursing school. It was always crazy trying to find time to plan in the midst of clinicals, papers, and studying. Wedding planning almost became therapeutic for me because it distracted me from the stress of school. I had so much fun planting all the succulents used in the centerpieces and collecting all the different vintage pieces.
Taking communion together was so special for us because it was a moment we could have alone together in the middle of the ceremony where everything feels so overwhelming and emotional.
I had so much fun dancing during our reception with all our friends and family. We danced to the point that my hair started falling down and my bustle came out of my dress! It was definitely a party to remember.

Tell us your story...
Scott and I met through mutual friends our freshman year of college and started dating our sophomore year.
COLLEGE SWEETHEARTS!! *Swoon*
Three Points Ranch was one of the first venues we found online and we knew right away we had to visit. We researched other venues, but Three Points Ranch was always in the back of our mind. The day we finally saw Three Points Ranch, we knew it was the one. The scenery is absoultely beautiful. Sally's done such an awesome job at decorating that all we added was flowers and some small personal touches. The options of two ceremony locations is amazing, and both are gorgeous! The airstream trailers in the reception site are decorated wonderfully and provide a great place for wedding parties to get ready in and for guest to lounge around in. We wanted a fun atmosphere for our friends and family, and Three Points Ranch provided the perfect ambiance.
What was your favorite part in the wedding planning process?
Seeing everything that was picked out through out the wedding planning process come together on the day of our wedding. It was like seeing all the pieces of a puzzle come together.
What was the favorite moment of your day?
It rained all day day Friday and Saturday morning. Hours before the ceremony the rain stopped. As I walked down the aisle to "Here Comes the Sun" by The Beetles, the sun broke from the clouds. It was the perfect way to start the ceremony and beautiful evening.
We loved spending the day with our closest friends and family and dancing the night away. Our wedding day couldn't have gone any better!
