Our simple wedding

My husband and I are very chill, simple and humble people. When we knew that we wanted to get married we knew that we didn’t want to do the traditional wedding. The whole traditional wedding scene is just not us, AT ALL. We began to think of ideas of where we wanted to have our wedding without spending so much money, after searching and looking at different venues we decided just to have it at our home… at first.

We were going to have our local pizzeria cater the wedding so I emailed the owners and asked for an estimate. We got positive feedback and they were able to work with our budget. My husband and I just thought to ask, since it doesn’t hurt to ask if we could go ahead and have our wedding there at the pizzeria. We were so anxious and hoping they would say yes because it would make it so much easier for us, and we knew they had an awesome patio with lots of space that we could gather at.

Received a response back with our fingers crossed…

I read the e-mail and they said yes to having the wedding there at the pizza parlor and they would cater the event all while working with our budget. We were both in “wow” mode and automatically had positive vibes about it. That weekend we were able to meet with the owners and talk more in detail of what we wanted and how we envisioned our wedding to be. When we met up they were very welcoming and ready to get to business.

Right off the bat, we told them that we were not doing anything traditionally we just wanted something simple and chill. They were very respectful of our wishes and wanted to make our day as stress-free as possible, which we loved. We left the meeting with happiness, excitement and prepared for our big day! For the food we decided to have a variety of pizza, spaghetti with meatballs, salad, and breadsticks.

My dress, the cake and the decorations were simple and inexpensive. Those three things, traditionally, you should splurge on but like I said before we are nowhere near traditional lol. My dress we bought at Dillard’s for about $36 on sale! I was so excited about the find and my husbands’ wallet was too haha. Most of the decorations were from the Dollar Tree, and we also went to Michaels and Walmart. The cake we got at our local HEB and we just picked one of their cakes they had on display and customized it. the cakes, we got two 10 inch cakes, came out to be about $48. In my eyes, I think it all looked so beautiful. I think what compliment it all the most and what made it not look so “cheap” was the weather and the layout of the patio.

Our simple wedding turned out beyond perfect!


After the wedding, my husband and I were in awe and could not stop talking about how everything was just so awesome. Thanks to all at Mattengas pizzeria who helped make our day perfect we cannot thank them enough. You could tell all of our family genuinely loved the wedding and especially the food! During the wedding, my brother in law was telling me that he really liked the wedding and he liked how it really represented us and we didn’t do something that we didn’t want to do. He also explained to me that my cousin was telling him that he as well, liked the wedding because he felt relaxed and he felt like he could just be himself. After hearing all of that, that just made me so happy. That’s exactly what we wanted. Everything was stress-free thanks to the staff and owners of Mattengas and also my mom sister for doing the decorations. We LOVED our wedding. I would totally do it all over again.


Much love, Taylor Grey with a pink heart
