Tradition Filled Aggie Wedding | Casey + Brandon

Brandon and Casey were married this past July in the heat of summer in New Ulm, Texas. While planning their wedding two themes became very prominent;  family tradition and their love for The Fightin’ Texas Aggies. By sharing their favorite traditions that have been a part of their families for years every single guest that attended that day felt like they were a member of the family.

Casey was the definition of a bubbly bride. The morning was filled with the girls’ laughter and excitement, there wasn’t anything that could get that contagious smile of Casey’s off her face!  Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding

Casey and Brandon decided to exchange gifts along with their letters leading up to the ceremony. This was only another example of how this couple was made for each other when they realized they had both given each other coordinates of their wedding day to one another. Casey giving Brandon his wedding day cufflinks and Brandon giving Casey charms for her charm bracelet. Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding

Casey’s vision for her traditional southern wedding was a planner’s dream! With a color palette of ivory, sage, and touches of Aggie maroon how could you go wrong? The creme de la creme of all Southern beauty, magnolia leaves incorporated in all her floral decor.Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding

There aren’t many things that are better than the reaction from the father of the bride during his first look with his little girl. But the first look Casey had with all her girls has to be a close second. Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding

Brandon and Casey’s unity ceremony had to be one of the most unique ones I have ever seen. They took a sapling from the beloved A&M century tree and combined soil from both of their family homes to plant it in their new home together. Tradition says that if a couple walks together underneath the Century Tree, they will eventually marry and if a marriage proposal takes place under the tree, the marriage will last forever. I would think having one of your own be a part of your unity ceremony has to be good luck. Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer WeddingTraditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding Traditional Aggie Summer Wedding

Possibly everyone’s favorite tradition that was shared that day was the guest book. Casey’s grandmother has used the same tablecloth for every holiday for years now and has had every family member sign it, this past year being the year Brandon could finally sign. After every holiday she would hand stitch over the signatures to preserve for years to come. Casey and Brandon thought it would only be right to keep the tradition going and start their own tablecloth. After the wedding, they would have all the signatures stitched over just like Casey’s grandmother to keep forever.

Other sweet details from this adorable couple were the pretzel favors representing their first date and the PB&J sandwiches late night snack representing Brandon’s family Christmas Eve tradition of eating PB&J’s right before bed.
