Whitney & Jackson
Whitney and Jackson’s May wedding at The Compound in Round Top, Texas was all about southern tradition meeting Texas charm. This is a KHP Collective wedding photographed by Katie and Allyson! Whitney and Jackson met during their time at the University of Alabama and 6 years later they celebrated their wedding day!
Planning an Intentional & Sentimental Wedding
Every detail of Whitney and Jackson’s wedding was made with so much intention and personal sentiment. Whitney grew up in Brenham, Texas, and Jackson is from Mobile, Alabama. Though the wedding was in Texas, they wanted it to feel like it could have taken place in Mobile. She wanted to combine the feeling of small town, charming Texas feel with southern, country club vibes.
Their stationary vendor, Eliza, was able to incorporate images of the venue into their crest illustration and they used it throughout the wedding. Soft blues, greens, and pinks set the tone and a cohesive look for the entire wedding.
One of Whitney’s favorite parts of planning their wedding was being able to include so much of their local community into all the details. Most of their wedding vendors were people Whitney had known for most of her life. The florist, Missy of Moosefeathers, had done floral arrangements for Whitney’s family since she was a girl. The local print shop designed and printed the sings for the bars and tables. Jackson got his suit from a shop in his hometown of Mobile called Francia’s. One of Whitney’s best friends, Brooke, made the earrings the bridesmaids wore and another friend painted the maps in the welcome boxes. Whitney’s hairdresser has done her hair since she was in the first grade! It was meaningful for Whitney and Jackson to have so many special people play a role in the details of their day!
They incorporated a lot of antique and heirloom pieces into their wedding as well. All of the silver like the champagne bucket, goblets, cocktail arrangement vases, bar top trays, etc. was from their grandparents. They featured a family table in the foyer with black and white photos of their grandparents, parents and one from their engagement session.
Wedding at The Compound in Round Top
The day of the wedding Whitney and her bridesmaids got ready at their hotel, The Frenchie. The groomsen got ready at Kobza Haus in Round Top. When it came time for the first look on the front porch of The Frenchie, Jackson was so excited to see Whitney that he turned around before the count down even began! Seeing each other instantly set them both at ease and calmed their wedding nerves.
At The Compound, they had an outdoor ceremony with a string quartet playing. A favorite part of their wedding ceremony was being able to turn and see all of their guests watching while their officiant spoke.
Wedding Reception at The Compound
During cocktail hour guests enjoyed sipping on cocktails like the “Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer” which was a nod to their alma mater of Alabama. When it was time for the reception, “L-O-V-E” by Nat King Cole played while Whitney and Jackson shared their first dance to a song they often cook dinner to. Toasts were given and the cake was cut and then it was time to hit the dance floor. Whitney’s hometown, Brenham, is home to Blue Bell ice cream, so they had a ice cream bar with Blue Bell ice cream with toppings and parlor hats.
The Manhattan Band turned the reception into the party of their dreams! Mardi Gras beads were passed around during the reception as a nod to Jackon’s hometown of Mobile. The singers and horn section were a hit and Whitney and Jackson had a blast dancing with everyone! As the night came to a close they shared one last private dance and then made their exit to their Mercedes getaway car!
The KHP Experience
This is what Whitney shared about her and Jackson’s experience working with The KHP Collective:
“The KHP team is servant hearted. With every email, conversation and interaction I truly felt how y’all wanted our day to be everything and more. . . You gave me my dream of film engagement shots, you went above and beyond on the wedding day to make sure everything was captured. You have been present, thoughtful, intentional, generous and selfless the entire process! It was truly my joy and honor to get to work with y’all.”
Whitney and Jackson’s love for their people and their wedding vendors was felt by the KHP Collective team as well. From their engagement session to their wedding day, the care and love they show people around them is just a tiny glimpse of how loving they are together. Congrats to the Satterwhites!
