Colby and Carley | Wedding Day at Sunset Ranch in Fredricksburg, Tx

Colby and Carley Walkoviak | Wedding Day at Sunset Ranch in Fredricksburg, Tx

This was actually our first time visiting Texas Wine Country and we couldn’t have picked a better location to celebrate Carley and Colby. Ivey and I were joined by our friend Davis (1/2 of The Crakes) to film this incredible Hill Country Wedding. We also had an awesome time working with Whitney and her husband (of Whitney Gilmer Photography).

What made you choose Sunset Ranch?

I don’t like to be too overwhelmed with decisions plus I knew I wanted a bright, clean look for our venue so we only looked at about 3 venues officially in person. I felt like I had seen every single one around the Tomball area so decided to look near Austin. We went to Sunset Ranch and instantly fell in love. From there we brought our parents up a few weekends later and officially booked!

Why did go with us to capture your big day?

Carley saw your work at Taylor & Braeden Boze’s wedding & instantly got chills from just the preview! Ever since that day, your card has been in Carley’s wallet waiting for the minute she was engaged. The rest is history!

You guys.. What do you do? How do you spend your time together? What is important in life to you?: 

Colby & I love the simple things in life such as just truly being together. Anything we do together we enjoy! We find ourselves mostly doing things like Netflix binge watching, fishing, hunting, grilling/cooking, running errands, driving, consuming large amounts of queso, and you can’t forget the margaritas! Our families, friends, and fur child, Dexter, are the most important things to us. Dexter is our right hand man and after long days at work he is what brings a smile to our face. On the weekends, we usually are hanging out with one of our families. Carley has a huge family so we keep busy with family functions!

The proposal... Tell us everything!

 For starters, I (Carley) thought Colby was going to propose at my birthday in May because all my best friends and brothers were in town. We went to eat, and I got all dressed up and nervous. When we sat in a very long booth I didn’t know how Colby was going to get down on one knee from the booth. LOL. Nothing happened that night other than celebrating my birthday which was greet! Fast forward to July! One of our favorite times of year is time at the Frio river in Concan, TX with about 20 of us college friends! We have been going for the past 3-4 years every summer. The Frio is such a beautiful get away in Texas, and you can float the river, swim, swing for om rope swings, jump off rocks, climb a “mountain”, camp, or all the above. We always rent a cabin, and after enjoying a day at the river go to the local restaurant that transforms into a concert venue/bar at night. It’s always usually Texas country artists, and us girls love using it as an excuse to get dressed up. So we all get ready, and we go out in front of the beautiful house we rented to take some picture before we leave which is totally normal because us girls loovveee taking pics! Colby pulls me aside after some girls only pics & wants to take one which I thought was a little weird for him (someone who doesn’t like the camera), but we go in front of the door to pose for some pictures, and then he got down on one knee in front of all our friends to propose to me! It was perfect! Our friends were able to catch it on video & grab some pictures. One of my best friends wasn’t able to make it so they FaceTimed her. After the jitters settled down a little, we went on to the concert and celebrated! It was such a great night! The planning started literally the day we got back from the Frio!
