Meagan and Trevor were married at The Barn at Twin Oaks Ranch on October 20, 2017. Their color palette was a beautiful, elegant combination of gray, silver, and pops of fall-toned purples. They chose an aviation theme because of where they both work and the fact that they met on an airplane while working, but they wanted the theme very subtly worked into their details. Their wedding was glamorous and romantic, and the subtle aviation-themed details made it totally unique and all their own.
There are a TON of amazing details from this wedding that we've got to cover (they were all SO good, I can't leave anything out!), but first up, let's talk about what these beautiful people wore! Meagan's David Tutera bridal gown and Carolina Herrera veil were absolutely exquisite. The illusion neckline and lace details on her dress were insaaaaane, y'all. STUNNING doesn't even begin to cover it. And her veil was one of the prettiest we've ever seen! This bridal look will never go out of style, and it was perfectly accented by the bridesmaids' glamorous, sequined Donna Morgan dresses (one of our fave details!).
See what I mean?! Happiest bride ever!
Trevor and his groomsmen wore classic black Calvin Klein tuxes (this bride and groom have great taste!), and they looked pretty much straight out of a bridal magazine. Groom goals right here, y'all! Trevor's groomsmaid wore a gorgeous Adrianna Papell dress.
Meagan’s purple florals were stunning, and the addition of darker shades kept them totally fall appropriate. "The flowers in general were extraordinary," she said. "They were magnificent. The flow from almost black purple to violet to a blush tone was breathtakingly perfect. The bouquets were absolutely exquisite! My aunt reached out to touch a flower at the reception and exclaimed, 'These are real?!?' She was completely awe-struck."
Meagan and Trevor's ceremony details were out of this world, and in my opinion, this was one of the most elegant ceremonies we've ever done! I cannot get over their altar, with its elegant draping, gorgeous greenery, and fabulous purple florals! To top it off, they had a gorgeous petal design down their aisle, as well as purple floral arrangements and lanterns.
One of Meagan's favorite things about getting married at The Barn was "the perfect blend of the country, rustic, rural venue with the chandeliers, draping, sequins, opulence, glamorous decor, romantic twinkle lights, and our beautiful guests all dressed to the nines in black-tie optional attire; it was a perfect blend of who we are as people," she said. "Country & classy. A little farm, a little city." LOVE!
"I know every bride probably thinks their wedding was the best one to ever take place at The Barn," Meagan said. "But y'all, TRULY! They not only completely out did themselves; the level to which they surpassed my expectations was immeasurable. I was overwhelmed by the elegance, the drama, and the luster. Trevor admitted to me after the wedding that he never had the vision to understand how it would look fully decorated & put together. He told me that he was impressed to a level of speechlessness on our wedding day. He was completely shocked at how gorgeous it turned out. And he's deeply thankful to the entire staff, especially Lesleigh and Victoria."
Aren't y'all dying over this dress?!
These portraits of Meagan and Trevor in their first few moments as newlyweds are absolutely beautiful, romantic and perfect. Their excitement and pure JOY are so obvious in these photos! All the love <3
"I'll never forget the moment when Trevor and I went to the back side of The Barn to see the inside before our guests," Meagan said. "They stood us outside the sliding doors and asked if we were ready. When they slid the doors open to reveal the inside in such a way, we both felt like we were on a tv show! It was so enchanting that I screamed!! All of our guests at cocktail hour heard my exclamation of excitement! The Barn completely stole our breath! We both slowly moved throughout the reception area, taking it all in. My heart felt so full, I thought it might explode! As I got closer to the dance floor, with What a Wonderful World playing, Trevor grabbed my hand & said, 'I know this isn't supposed to be our first dance, but it's going to be...' It was so incredibly sweet & romantic! I'll never forget having that private moment with my new husband surrounded by such spectacular loveliness."
We spy Meagan's pretty "something blue" shoes! Fun fact: she did the whole "something old, blue, borrowed and blue" tradition, AND she even wore a sixpence in her shoe!
The fabulous, romantic, glamorous details continued into The Barn for Meagan and Trevor's reception. Just a few of the details I'm absolutely in love with: the gorgeous place settings, purple hues, romantic florals, SEQUINS (swoon!), and that insane draping, which automatically makes The Barn a hundred times more magical and dreamy!
"I know it's a bit cliche to say this, but I'm not sure I can pick a favorite detail, because there were SO many details!” Meagan said. “From honoring Trevor's dad who passed away earlier this year to the leaves magically falling during our ceremony to the stellar service provided by the staff to our scrumptious and beautiful cake of 4 different flavors, to the incredible dance party provided by our DJ! It was all phenomenal!! My favorite thing about getting married at The Barn was Lesleigh and Victoria. I'm a Type A personality with attention to detail. So I know I probably drove both Victoria and Lesleigh up a wall with my questions and instructions. They couldn't have been more gracious and incredible throughout the process. The fact that they handled practically everything was a huge stress reliever for me. And the relationship we developed created an unbridled trust. I was at complete ease putting the most important day of my life in their hands.”
It's pretty much our favorite thing ever when our couples use their details to tell a little bit of their love story. That's why we LOVED Meagan and Trevor's aviation theme. "Trevor and I both work for a major airline, and that's how we met," Meagan said. "So we had subtle hints of travel and airplanes throughout the day. Our escort cards were tiny paper airplanes pointing at a beautiful globe. The tables were named for places Trevor and I have visited, accompanied by a black and white photo of us in that location. The favors also reflected our aviation connection." Their favors were small metal bottle openers that were shaped like airplanes... adorable!
Meagan and Trevor have impeccable taste, so they chose a design for their cake that was elegant, unique and beautiful. I LOVE this cake. It was a (mostly) classic, simple white cake with one gray and black ombre layer and tons of beautiful purple florals.
Meagan and Trevor's reception was one big, amazing party with their guests, who came all the way from Texas (and all across the country) to be here for their big day! "At the reception our guests kept coming up to me repeating the same things. 'We understand now why you made us come this far. It was the most beautiful wedding I've ever seen. It was perfect. It was stunning.' But the one thing I heard the most; 'It was magical.' And it was. Pure magic," Meagan said.
Meagan and Trevor went on an incredibly romantic, EPIC Italian honeymoon. "We were gone for 10 days," she said. "It was very busy! We saw Rome, Florence, the Tuscan countryside, Pisa, and Cinque Terre!"
Finally, Meagan had the sweetest things to say about our team when I asked her for some feedback on her planning process and her wedding day. "It was purely MAGICAL," she said. "I was floored by how perfectly everything was executed. Everything flowed without me having to worry. Victoria was on top of order and timing and detail. I keep saying, I wish I could hit rewind and do it all again! My heart is so full from our special day. I still get teary just thinking about it. And I owe it all to the good Lord above and the place where dreams come true and magic happens... The Barn At Twin Oaks Ranch."
As if Meagan hasn't already completely blown us away with her kind words, here is the super sweet, heart melting review she left us on Facebook. Meagan, please be our BFF!
