About Me

Hi There!
I’m Emily Burgess, the owner and founder of Hill Country Bride. Thanks for stopping by! I have been working in weddings all of my career and have been so blessed to work in the field that is my greatest passion. I was introduced to weddings while working for a photographer in Kentucky and eventually did wedding photography on my own. After I was married to my lovely husband, Brent, we decided to make a big move to Colorado, simply for the love of adventure. While in Colorado I worked for two different resorts doing wedding venue sales, wedding coordination, wedding planning, and catering sales. After some amazing years in Colorado, we decided it was time to move back home to the Hill Country of Texas, where I found my talent and creative passion for wedding design and styling. I have worked in nearly every field within the wedding industry, giving me a fully-rounded perspective of all of the elements involved in creating an amazing wedding day. I have fallen in love with the amazing brides and creative vendors that I get to work with and have started blogging about the magic of Hill Country Weddings. I hope my blog can be a planning resource to brides and vendors alike!

Weddings signify a beautiful and lasting new season our lives. They are a timeless celebration, a ray of light in our world, a moment of magic in our mundane lives, an artistic masterpiece where we are both the creators and the elements. A DAY among days. I am so excited to meet you and hope to join you and your loved ones on this new adventure in your lives!
