As mentioned previously, the wedding was held on the Drummond family ranch. The dress code was black-tie optional, and the photos show all the guests dressed to the nines!

Ree’s mother-of-the-bride dress was designed by Jovani, while Alex’s strapless lace wedding gown was designed by Monique Lhuillier. All of the Drummond men and Mauricio wore black suits and tuxes, and the bridesmaids wore pale blue dresses.

The couple chose not to do a “first look” before the ceremony.

When I thought about the wedding day, that’s what imagined: my dad getting to walk me down the aisle…and seeing Mauricio for the first time,” Alex said.

After the ceremony, the bride and groom joined their guests for a cocktail hour. The cocktail hour was followed by the reception, which was held under a large tent decorated with tons of flowers.

Ree’s own restaurant, The Mercantile, provided the food for the reception.

…Ree’s awesome staff at The Merc included a spring field greens salad with tiny vegetables for the starter, and a steak and shrimp duet with sides like caramelized onion and bacon mac and cheese, charred veggies, and mashed potatoes. All of this was, of course, taste-tested by Ree herself beforehand,” the article about Alex’s wedding states.

Alex and Mauricio also had a six-tier wedding cake made by Amy Cakes. It was decorated with real flowers, as well as edible lace to mimic Alex’s dress. Mauricio also had a groom’s cake that was shaped like a sports jersey and represented his favorite teams.

The newlyweds shared their first dance to Leon Bridges’ “Beyond.”

Alex’s father-daughter dance with her dad, Ladd, was to Brooks & Dunn and Reba McEntire‘s “Cowgirls Don’t Cry.” As for Mauricio, he danced with his mother to Kenny Rogers‘ “Through the Years.”

After dancing their hearts out at the reception, the fun continued at an after-party at P-Town Pizza. Guests enjoyed pizza, wings, and snacks while busting a move on the dance floor.
