Our Labor of Love Photography got in contact with us after shooting Meriwether and Will's wedding. They thought that you guys might get a kick out of a tattooed groom, a rocking band, and the little offbeat details of this Fort Worth, Texas wedding.


This amazing property is Greenwood Farm and the bride's mom has lived and operated a horse farm on this property for over twenty-five years! So she was thrilled when Will agreed to marry on the property.

They also hired a vaudeville/Romani-inspired/rock band from Austin, Tx called Wino Vino — violins, horns, accordions, the whole nine yards. Meriwether explains,

"Right up until the middle of the wedding I would have panic attacks that this would be waaaaay too much for our Deep South/Texas family members. Turns out, they were absolutely amazing. Our non-traditional wedding songs were so memorable and, by the end of the evening, they had everyone on the dance floor doing this crazy whirling-dervish circle dance. It was frantic and so unbelievably fun. They also looked so cool."

Here's what that crazy whirling-dervish circle dance looked like!

Run over to Our Labor of Love's blog and eat up some more of this wedding.

  1. The first link to Meriwether and Will's photos work, but the last link doesn't.

    And can I just say those yellow ties are eye-catching and amazing!

  2. Beautiful! I lived in Ft. Worth for seven years, so seeing the grass and trees brought me back. 🙂 I love the bride's shoes!

  3. OMG!! Love this wedding! I love the free-spirited feel of gypsy music and how is makes everyone who hears it want to get up and dane (even me, who NEVER dances!) Kudos 😀
