magical wedding at Living Waters
Submitted: July 26, 2012

We didn’t want a cookie-cutter wedding. We’re allergic to halls with zero personality and palatial estates that are too grand and antiseptically pristine for such an intimate and personal event.
Our wedding held at Living Waters was nothing short of magical. As soon as we stepped through the front gate, we knew we found the venue we’d been looking for. There is a sacred, peaceful, harmonious energy here, along with stunning natural grounds and buildings with unique architecture that is at turns modern, funky and homey (not the typical Laura Ashley, kitschy, Texas B&B that predominates in the area).
Our wish list was long:
We wanted a site that would allow for a day-long wedding and reception, as we wanted to spend more than 2 minutes with each of our mostly out-of-state guests. Our preference was to have a place on the water with room for 100 people, but still feel intimate. We desired a space that would accommodate our wedding party for the weekend so we’d have time to connect instead of running around from place to place. We were looking to get married under a canopy of wise old trees. We wanted to choose our own vendors. And we wanted to work with kind, communicative, honest, warm folks. Check, check, check, check, check and check. And we didn’t want to have to harvest our organs to pay for it.
Above and beyond really doesn’t cover it:
Bethany and Travis Webb could not have been more accommodating. Their love of Living Waters and experience hosting their own wedding on site was invaluable. They recommended local vendors, gave us tips on how to lay out the space and the day. They let us tour the site multiple times for our do-it-yourself planning purposes. Travis toiled to update the pavilion, helped us erect a wedding arch and ensured the grounds looked fantastic. And Bethany saved our behinds by agreeing to coordinate our wedding day at the 11th hour after we were forced to let our coordinator go. I should say: Bethany didn’t just coordinate, she took charge, and did so with incredible grace, dedication and good humor. Our wedding would’ve most likely been a total calamity without her.
We had the wedding of our dreams. A wedding we believe truly reflected us and our union. We cannot recommend Living Waters more highly and are pleased to call the Webbs our friends.
