Every moment of Victoria and Gunnar’s wedding day was full of joy, warmth, laughter, and love. Their classic winter wedding was a dream.
These two met at Anytime Fitness in Bulverde, Texas. Gunnar owned the training company there and Victoria was going to work out daily. Gunnar was told that Victoria was off-limits for training sessions because she was too nervous, but it was because he was so cute, and he made her nervous. One day, Victoria sent him an Instagram message saying, ” You are so handsome, we should say more than just, hi.” Gunnar claims he was JUST ABOUT to message her too! Their first date was April 1, 2018, and they haven’t looked back since!!!
Their gorgeous Paniolo Ranch wedding took place on a warm winter day. The Texas Hill country was the perfect backdrop for their outdoor ceremony to seal the deal on their love story. I adore how Victoria used the natural elements and three simple Christmas trees to set the stage for the ceremony.
The use of dark green and burgundy were woven throughout the florals and the details, including the bridesmaids’ dresses, was a striking display against the natural stone of the venue.
I live for the moment the bride walks down the aisle. Gunnar’s reaction to seeing Victoria is what every girl dreams of on her wedding day (cue the tears).
The next best moment, in my opinion, is the walk down the aisle after the “I do’s!” The joy and relief at this moment say it all.
The reception was complete with introductions, first dances, toasts, dinner, and dancing the night away.
My favorite unique element to their reception was the Christmas tree with a box of blank ornaments for their guests to customize. Then, each ornament was placed on the tree. What an incredible way to reminisce on your wedding every year! So CLEVER!!!
Thank you, Victoria and Gunnar, for sharing your lives with us! What a pleasure it has been getting to know you both on the road to your wedding day. Dan and I wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness!
