Another wonderful week of inspiration is just beginning here on Style Me Pretty Texas and we are kicking it all off with this jaw-droppingly gorgeous traditional Austin affair captured by Brett Buchanan Photography. And, believe you me, we couldn't have started on a better note. From those gorgeous hydrangeas-filled bouquets by Stems Floral to an amazing Oscar de la Renta gown (I am in love) to the oh-so-adorable cookie tribute to New York AND Texas, I am completely smitten with every fabulous detail. All coordinated to perfection by Your Very Own Fairy Godmother, there is an entire gallery full of gorgeous to keep us occupied this lovely Monday morning. Join me there for even more!
From the Bride... Sean is from Seattle, I am from Houston, we live in New York City, and got married in Austin. When we first got engaged we knew that no matter where we got married all of our family would have to travel, so we decided to have it in one of our favorite cities, Austin. We chose the Four Seasons Austin immediately because of it’s location in downtown Austin with it’s feeling of a country lake property. We wanted our wedding to be casually elegant, like we were having all of our friends and family for a big dinner party. We wanted to bring the bright Texas stars from the terrace inside with lots of candles filling the room with twinkle. The room full of hydrangeas were chosen to imitate the textured feeling of my Oscar de la Renta gown. Sean’s cuff links were made from 19th century ten-dollar gold pieces given to his grandfather by his great-grandfather. I wore my grandmother's crystal earrings pinned in mu hair beneath my veil.
