On a clear, crisp day in February, Carolyn Kirschke and Joseph Narvaez tied the knot at the rustic Heritage House in Dripping Springs.
The intimate affair had an ethereal feel to it. Set against the backdrop of the Texas Hill Country, the bridal party opted for neutral-toned dresses accented by bold pops of color in their bouquets. The groomsmen wore classic tuxes with varying colorful bow ties.
Carolyn and Joseph implemented all the fixings of a traditional ceremony and reception with a few unique spins thrown in. While the bride threw her bouquet, the groom opted to toss a pair of boxers, a hit with all in attendance. Toasts brought the couple to tears, and dancing went well into the evening.
Rural touches were found throughout the sprawling 30-acre Heritage House, which offered a private escape from the city for the special day.
