When your family own and run a wedding venue it makes the decision of where to get married an easy one especially when it's as gorgeous as PLANTATION ELEGANCE in Texas. I mean that spanish moss!! It also happens to be the house the bride grew up in making it all the more special. The lovely JENNA MCELROY captured this intimate backyard wedding

TELL US ABOUT FINDING YOUR WEDDING DRESS: It was the very first dress I tried on, it just felt right! The dress was originally strapless and I had the sleeves added on.

DESCRIBE YOUR WEDDING FLOWERS: I knew from the beginning I wanted lots of greenery, that is more my style. We added in white flowers where they were needed and into my bouquet. Our florists made happen exactly what I had envisioned and I could not have been happier with them.

WHAT ADVISE WOULD YOU GIVE OUT TO A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING? Things can get stressful and overwhelming but stay calm and stick together. We decided to enjoy the planning time and take one day at a time. I know everyone says this but remember what it's all about, getting to be married.
