Krissi + Tom | Backyard Micklethwait Craft Meats BBQ Wedding

My life has always revolved around food. Growing up, my parents worked from early morning to late in the evening to support us, yet, every night, they prioritized having dinner together. Around the table, sharing food, we talked about our days and discussed current events. Through these dinners and conversations, my parents instilled the importance of community through food.

Tom is the owner and pitmaster at Micklethwait Craft BBQ, one of Texas Monthly's favorite barbeque joints in the state. So, it was a natural decision for these two to get married in a place that means so much to them and their friend circle. Those who have worked in the food industry know a unique version of camaraderie manifests with your peers. The 60 hours work-week throughout nights, weekends, and holidays bring you closer.

To arrive and see this place I have stood in line many times before transformed with florals across the tables, and the archway was a delight.

I loved how unpretentious the day was, with Krissi shrugging after the ceremony and speeches, looking at their gathered friends stating "what do we do now?" Throughout the evening, Krissi and Tom ensured everyone's plates and cups were full, got more napkins from storage, and were the last ones to eat.

An evening that focused on what was important, doting on their closest people, and celebrating their love.
