Green Wedding at Vista West Ranch in Texas

For today’s real wedding is a fun and casual wedding at Vista West Ranch that brought together a love for nature and good BBQ! Nhu and Steve planned a beautiful DIY affair inspired by the Texas hill country. They also tried to incorporate “green” elements wherever they could: reusing wine and soda bottles for the flower arrangements, using biodegradable plates and silverware, and using old postcards for the guest sign-in.
