Miah and Boone met while attending Texas A&M University in College Station. In true Aggie fashion, their first encounter was at a mutual friend’s Ring Dunk ceremony, a tradition that commemorates when a student receives their class ring and becomes a Senior. This meeting sparked an interest in both of them that would eventually lead to the altar on an April day in the Texas Hill Country.

Miah describes the couple’s meeting saying, “He was wearing the bluest pants I’ve ever seen. Not blue jeans. Like blueberry, blue pants. I said they were nice, and then we didn’t speak again for weeks until he invited me to a Halloween party. All of my friends wanted to go elsewhere, so I went alone, which was scary as a true crime podcast listener, but I did it. I don’t regret it either. The moment I walked in, he looked at me and I felt like I was the only one in the room. I’ve felt that way for almost five years now. Boone says in that moment, seeing me so happy to see him was a surreal moment. I think that’s where we knew that this was the start of something very special.”

Miah, originally from Odessa, Texas, and Boone, hailing from Montgomery, Texas, (about a 7.5-hour drive apart) aimed to make travel fair for both families as easy as possible.

“Kerrville was right smack in the middle of Houston and Odessa, which made it the perfect location! It was also a beautiful area I knew was bound to have amazing venues and vendors,” Miah shared.

The venue search didn’t last long as the couple fell head over heels for Sendera Springs early on in the planning process.

“We knew that we wanted our ceremony to be outdoors with an indoor reception, and Sendera had everything we wanted,” the bride says. “It gave me the modern feel that I was looking for while giving us a bit of rustic touch too. We knew it was our venue before we got back into the car to head home.”

Miah and Boone envisioned a clean, modern, and effortlessly beautiful wedding, reflected in their choice of decor. With a nod to simplicity and elegance, the couple incorporated greenery on the tables and opted for minimalistic decorations. A noodle bar for a late-night snack added a unique and tasty touch to the celebration.

The ceremony was sweet and intimate, with simple yet beautiful decorations. Family and friends filled the seats, creating a joyous atmosphere. Miah highlighted the importance of incorporating traditions, including jumping the broom—a meaningful nod to her culture and legacy.

Reflecting on their experience, Miah and Boone offered advice to future couples. “The little things you thought you’d be so worried about don’t even matter,” the bride says. She urged couples to savor every moment, take a breather, and have fun. Additionally, hiring a good photographer, like Wisteria Jade, ensured that every precious moment was captured for eternity.
