If you haven’t seen pictures from Danielle and Stevo Keighley’s wedding (I’ll be blunt), you just really should! It looks like something out of an absolute dream. From the venue, to the decor, Danielle herself, and each and every personal touch she carefully crafted as a part of their big day, it is absolute perfection.
How beautiful is that? The wooden beams looming overhead, the cowhide rug that the bride and groom are front and center on, the longhorn skull off in the background, and the subtle cacti to frame the newlyweds tying in with the trees off in the distance.
How creative is she?! Over time I’ve definitely seen couples opting for something a little more personal, creative, decorative, or even more useful than a unity candle. This however, takes the cake! (No, we’re not quite there yet…but that’s coming too. Promise!)
This little beauty was actually the inspiration for the bridesmaid bouquets! I’m not quite sure what our leading lady ended up using for boutonnieres, but this looks like it would have fit right in! Oh and MUY IMPORTANTE: read Miss Danielle’s caption of the above photo… Wonderful wedding planning advice, don’t you agree? Do we have any more advice out there?? Feel free to drop in the comments!
Such gorgeous girls! So many different things catch my attention: the mismatched bridesmaids attire that somehow seems to match perfectly; the black dresses that aren’t completely black framing Danielle; and of course those adorable bouquets!
Speaking of bouquets….here we have the mother of all of them! I am currently swooning. Everything about this screams southwest in it’s absolutely own perfect way. The color palette, the arrangement of flowers, the combination of succulents, and of course that leather wrap with their brand on it is the icing on the cake. (Oh y’all calm down, I’m getting there!)
You’ve barely even arrived and you’re already getting a feel for the personal style of the couple.
Love! Again with the cacti and wooden accents, and then the family photos as a blast from the past are so sweet.
I cannot say enough about her centerpieces: 1. Because they are adorable. 2. Because you can still see everyone at your table! 3. And then of course the southwestern table runners add a bit more stye, color, and personal flair.
Centerpiece artwork number two! I love cow skulls…I’ve even been guilty of covering them in stones, rocks, and glitter a time or two. The simplicity and even elegance of this is definitely right up my alley.
Goals in life: to be as creative and crafty as our bride is. Need I say more?
This setting has my heart. Everything about this is perfect…especially the story behind the photo! What a precious memory and special time for the Keighleys.
Wedding favors are just one of many things that blushing brides have started getting more creative with over the years. The succulents given out at this wedding were no exception! What gal pal leaving that night wouldn’t have been thrilled with her new décor?
“Cactus to Cacti?!” How cute!
Haha okay I just really couldn’t resist including this one! #GOALS
CAKE. I promised y’all it was coming! His beautiful bride, tooled leather, that brand, and of course icing and sweets! What more could the groom want?!
Be still my heart… I have no words! Such a gorgeous creation, how could you bring yourself to eat such a beauty?
THESE. These little pretties made their debut a while back and still take my breath away! I did a blog a while back on the lovely lady that made these so be sure and check it out too!
Turquoise has my heart forever and for always. The best part about that? Turquoise lovers never have to worry about scrambling to find the “something blue!”
More turquoise? My kinda girl!
Last but certainly not least, RINGS…the most important part of the wedding because of all they symbolize. Such a romantic wedding with a southwest feel for a timeless bride with a flair of her own.
Miss Danielle, on behalf of myself and all of us at COWGIRL Magazine, we wish you and Stevo a lifetime of love, happiness, prosperity, and cacti! Much love!
