Kimberly and Erika’s fall wedding took place at the Ivory Oak outside of Austin, Texas. Natural light provided a warm hue as they exchanged their vows in an outdoor ceremony, which took place at the foot of a large tree, adorned with draped white fabric.

The couple’s color palette included ivory, lilac and forest green, and were reflected in details from the flowers and wedding party–attire to the reception decor and seating chart. Wood finishes and greenery were strung along the tables, in keeping with the natural elements of the garden area where they held their ceremony.

Kimberly and Erika celebrated the final moments of the night with a sparkler exit. The newlyweds left the venue by walking down an aisle of their family and friends cheering for them as they shared a photo-finish kiss.
