Because she works in the industry, it was important to Elise that her and AnDre’s wedding felt like them instead of like every other wedding she’d ever been to or worked on.

“Here in Texas, it’s very common to have a rustic, country wedding, but we’re just not the type of people,” she told Insider. “We wanted something with a little Texas flair but more traditional and with a little bit of modern thrown in there too.”

The Walkers ended up planning a timeless yet ethereal wedding at Canyonwood Ridge that was full of pops of colors. 

“I really loved warm, bright, colorful hues, so I wanted pinks and oranges and reds. I’ve been wanting that since I was like 15,” Elise told Insider of her vision for the wedding.

“I’ve been planning my wedding since we started dating,” Elise went on to say with a laugh. “It was a long time coming, but I made it come true.”

She knew she wanted her dress to fit the vision she’d been curating for years too.
