With stunning views of the sprawling Texas Hill Country and unique architecture, Chapel Dulcinea, an open-air wedding venue, was exactly what Kristin and Chris had envisioned for their big day (and, it’s one of Nikk's Picks for Austin wedding venues)! Read on to learn more about what made their wedding special.

Making the Dream Real

Kristin and Chris had very clear intentions for their wedding day. They imagined an intimate and low-key affair surrounded by nature and immediate family. Chapel Dulcinea, while being exposed to the elements, was just the spot. While they did unfortunately have some less-than-ideal weather, the wind and rain created an atmospheric mood and romantic aura for the day. But that wouldn’t stop this couple: they embraced the weather and celebrated their love with those most important people close by.

Making Memories

“There’s certainly something to be said for embracing the moment, so we smiled, laughed, popped champagne, and danced with the wind blowing our hair and the raindrops falling on our head.”

One of the most special moments for Kristin and Chris was the tradition of ringing the chapel bell to announce their union to the world. With joy in their hearts and eyes, they created a memory that will last. They also really enjoyed the solo guitarist hired for the big event. They were engaged during a trip in France, and the guitarist’s rendition of “La Vie En Rose” at the wedding connected those two moments together through space and time.

Making it Your Own

When asked for wedding planning advice, they had some wisdom to share. Decide which elements are essential for your big day and weave them into your big day to make it unique and truly your own. One way they made it their own was to patronize small local businesses to create a simple, organic, and timeless vibe. As for the day itself: take time to stop and savor the special moments. It only happens once, so don’t forget to enjoy it!
