This morning, San Antonio was our focus. But just a hop, skip and a jump to the north(west) is the charming old-world town of Fredericksburg. An art and antique lovers dream come true! Maggie Gillespie sent us these beautiful shots by Jennifer Lindberg Weddings from one of their recent weddings at the Trois Estate …
from Maggie Gillespie … I loved doing this vibrant June wedding in the Texas Hill Country overlooking Enchanted Rock for this beautiful young couple. He was signed as a ballplayer for the University of Texas, so we had the bride’s favorite flower blooming in a riot of burnt orange and red red rose…. and the groom’s cake made in the shape of a catcher’s mitt. Trois Estate supplied their delicious food and eclectic taste, expansive views and attentive service. I had the gorgeous antique goddess doorway came abloom for the ceremony with hundreds of American Beauty roses…even more lovely as the evening deepened and the lights came up, fragrancing the courtyard… a wonderful setting for the wedding service at dusk! The staff changed out the church pews for dance floor and additional dining space while the guests had cocktails on the upper deck with breathtaking views of Enchanted Rock at sunset painting the sky. The bride loved peonies, reds (and of course burnt orange!) so I had big red Chilean peonies and orange makara orchids flown in for the bouquets. Iron lanterns hung in the courtyard’s oak tree and also were filled with flowers on guest tables. A great band played upstairs over the open courtyard to the dancers below with long tables set for dinner upstairs, lit with more large lanterns, aglow in candlelight and flowers, toasts and laughter. We had a cigar roller (with personalized cigar bands,) wonderful walks and carriage rides through the artisan village of Trois Estate and incredibly long sparklers from Nuevo Laredo to light up the night at their exit. We had shuttle busses take the wedding guests back to their hotels and b & b’s in nearby Fredericksburg while the clear night’s stars and full moon continued the enchanted evening’s glow.
