Texas Hill Country is made for marrying, I don’t need to tell you that. And when it comes to choosing a locale in this pretty little Lone Star State paradise, look no further than The Greenhouse at Driftwood, a breathtaking venue that is equal parts elegant AND unique. Think lush foliage, natural open spaces and a true attention to conservation and sustainability. We’re honestly obsessed.
Tucked amidst the Onion and Jackson Creeks just miles from the Austin city limits, The Greenhouse at Driftwood is unlike any other venue you will ever have the privilege to visit with amazing structures and surroundings all cared for by THREE generations of the same family. Yep, from the century-old Oaks to their beautiful greenhouse to their breathtaking deck, The Greenhouse at Driftwood is giving Hill Country weddings a whole new meaning. Not to mention that The Greenhouse has been collecting rainwater for primary water use since the 1970’s, uses rooftop solar panels for most of their power needs AND proudly supports Hill Country Conservancy and the Travis Audubon Society. We love that.

From Sheradee Hurst… Adam and Brook spent countless hours on the campus of the University of Central Oklahoma, particularly in The Great Room at the library, as their relationship grew. They found themselves distracted from their school work because they were falling in love. What started out as a friendship began to evolve into an undeniable romance. They cherish memories from the campus of the University of Oklahoma, so it was an easy choice for their engagement session to be in The Great Room where the great love of their life began. Right outside the library is a concrete u-shaped symbol called The Spoonholder. Legend has it that if you kiss someone inside The Spoonholder you are destined to marry that person. Legend is true as these two will tie the knot this fall.
Brook dreamed of a snowy engagement session, so in a team effort, her wedding planner, Talia Morgan with Inspire Events and Sheradee Hurst Photography were on standby at the first chance of snow. When the forecast called for it accumulation, the plan sparked into action. While the wind was rather strong on shoot day, it was imperative they make the snowy engagement shoot happen. Talia Morgan also designed the floral to give an added touch of wintery beauty and bring in even more color to coordinate with their wardrobe. You can tell from Adam and Brook’s chemistry, nothing heats up a blistery cold engagement shoot like a rock solid love.
