Emily and Derek’s moody winter wedding was pure romance! Emily has always loved the warm, deep colors of the Pacific Northwest and wanted to carry that enchanted feel and warmth through to their magical evening. The team at Mayhar Design made her dreams come to life with hints of mauve and antique lavender mixed with burgundy and textured foliage – we couldn’t love it more! Cheers to Emily and Derek!

Emily and Derek met through church while attending Texas A&M University. Eventually, they grew closer and he asked her out on a date. They became inseparable!
After spending a summer in Belgium serving Syrian refugees, Emily came home to relax with family in Austin while Derek was in College Station – or so she thought. She and her family enjoyed a dinner that seemed a little rushed, but Emily didn’t think much of it. As they were driving over the 360 Bridge, her dad suggested they walk up to look out at the lake. Walking up to the bridge, Emily noticed a table complete with candles and flowers just as her family slowly disappeared. Confused, her father escorted her to the top where Derek was waiting. He read a heartfelt letter to her and then popped the question. Emily excitedly said yes, and they enjoyed a bottle of champagne and talked about the days to come.
