Romantic Garden Party Wedding Inspiration

This tablescape is both intimately romantic and chic, one where I can see myself getting comfortable among Petal, Ink’s florals for hours. But add in that gorgeous gown by Nha Khanh and this celebration becomes wedding material, with my love for it growing even more. Kate Anfinson’s photos are downright frame worthy and I won’t be closing out of this gallery anytime soon.

From Kate Anfinson PhotographyThis garden wedding styled shoot is filled with vibrant pink and shimmering metallic accents set against a backdrop of neutral and organic elements. Laguna Gloria provides the perfect setting to create a romantic garden atmosphere. Lovely Letters Shop’s invitation suite with rose gold calligraphy sets the tone for elegance and femininity. Our model, Emily, looks stunning with side swept hair and glowing makeup done by Makenzi Laine.

An understated Nha Khanh lace gown and delicate rose gold earrings complete the look. Florals by Petals Ink feature pops of magenta amid blush, white and peach hues – a perfect complement to the vintage gold china and berry tinted goblets in the tablescape by Birch and Brass. Green Lily Bakery’s gorgeous cake and small desserts, including macarons brushed with copper, were the finishing touch.

Elegant Italian Inspired Texas Wedding

I’ve long heard the glories of Austin but I had no idea that it possessed a wedding wonder in its vicinity like Villa Del Lago. Transformed into an Italian escape for this couple’s summer celebration, it was covered with beautiful blush blooms from Flora Fetish. Jana Williams worked her magic behind the lens and these pics might just trick you into believing that they actually were taken in Tuscany.

Villa

From Jana Williams PhotographyConnie and Daniel fell in love after meeting on Coffee Meets Bagel. The New Yorkers have a love for Europe and wanted to get married in a place that felt like Italy. They found that location in Austin, Texas. Villa Del Lago stole their hearts with its breathtaking views and grand structure.

Connie chose a beautiful Jenny Lee gown that was so elegant and feminine; it reminded me of a rose from the back and moved with such grace.

She added a fashion aspect by choosing the amazing Sergio Rossi booties as her wedding shoes.
The 100 guests that flew in from all over the world enjoyed an outside luxurious dinner under the stars after the ceremony. The day was perfect from start to finish.

On top of this being the perfect place to get married, Villa Del Lago also donates 50 percent of the proceeds to a local charity. My heart was touched so much by that news. I hope you enjoy this wedding as much as I enjoyed capturing it.

From the beautiful Bride… Sam and I were high school sweethearts and endured five years of long distance during college before he proposed on Town Lake with our rescue pit bull, Droopy. After celebrating our engagement with mimosas and french pastries, planning our dream wedding immediately became a true labor of love. We wanted our wedding to be a romantic representation of our hometown, Austin, and infused natural colors, metallics, different textures, and pops of bold hues in the floral design to bring our vision to life.

We were working on a budget, so every weekend I would go out with my mom and sisters to look for one-of-a-kind finds that wouldn’t break the bank, like the votives from our local grocery store and the head table linen from Jo-Ann Fabrics. We also re-purposed a lot of things we already owned, like the picture frames that held keepsake photos of our families, rustic lanterns – and my sister even made a lot of our desserts! I even hand-wrote all of our escort cards. However, my favorite DIY project that we took on was sponging gold paint on what felt like hundreds of orange and white pumpkins to display throughout the wedding.

Sam and I also wanted to inject our personalities into the wedding, and we found creative ways to do so. Our guest sign-in book was a cookbook since Sam and I love to cook together…. we had our guests write something special next to their favorite recipes! Our signature drinks were Moscow Mules and White Russians (the Dude abides), and we also chose to do tiny pies in mason jars as our wedding favors – a nod to our love of Southern sweets and our laid back lifestyle.

Our ceremony and reception were on the mosaic-stoned terrace at One World Theatre, and Sam and I said our vows at sunset with our closest friends and family looking on.  It was truly an emotional, personal, and ethereal experience.

From 36th Street EventsKylie met Sam in a high school physics class. He was the class clown and she was the studious type. Fast-forward five years through a long distance relationship and you can imagine Sam on one knee in the middle of the hike and bike bridge where Kylie loves to run.

These two hopeless romantics continued the element of surprise throughout their wedding by scheming with DJ Byrne Rock to surprise Kylie’s mom with a special “first dance”. Her parents had eloped 25 years earlier and never had a formal wedding, or a first dance. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room as the Bride’s parents danced to a favorite song by a local artist named Jimmy LaFave.

The ceremony took place on a mosaic-stoned terrace overlooking the Texas hill country, where the Bride and Groom graduated from high school sweethearts to lifelong lovers. Kate Anfinson Photography was there to capture every intimate moment.

The focus on romance was continued through the reception floral design expertly styled by Petals, Ink. Floral Artistry. Lush deep red and purple blooms complemented small pumpkins and metallic accents as a dreamy nod to the upcoming holiday. Later in the evening guests were invited to experience the Bride and Groom’s love of Southern sweets and a laid-back lifestyle with a variety of seasonal pies in mason jars.

The 36th Street Events planning team was beyond thrilled to bring all these details together for what shaped up to be every pumpkin latte-drinking romance-loving bride’s dream come true!

Sweet + Simple Austin Brunch Wedding

There’s something so perfectly sweet about a brunch wedding, but factor in the beautiful old church, a glowing Bride plus a Groom in uniform, and you’ve got a recipe for perfection. It’s a true family affair captured by Kristen Kilpatrick, and to top if all off? A three-tiered cinnamon roll flavored wedding cake made my the bride’s best friend. Yes, please!

From Kristen KilpatrickSometimes when a wedding ceremony is so incredibly special and soul filling, it then becomes hard to put into words, which is why the little details and small moments throughout the day play such an important role for telling the sory of the day. Luisa and Even first met during the second grade in their small hometown of Elgin, Texas. After highshcool graduation the two lost touch and in 2012 rekindled their flame. From my very first client meeting with Luisa, she made it completely clear that she wanted the ceremony to be God glorifying and centered on the true meaning of marriage. Luisa also wanted to plan a wedding that was small and intimate, so that she best felt surrounded by family and Christ. This stunning bride couldn’t have asked for a more romantic, sincere, or gorgeous day! Having the entire family able to attend was important to Luisa and Evan, so they decided to go with a brunch themed noon wedding in order to assure everyone made it home safely by evening. They chose to have their wedding at Mercury Hall in Austin, Texas.

The twelve o’clock sunshine seeped through the stain glass windows of the old refurbished Church and completely lit up the ceremony site with the most breathtaking natural light. Upon entering guest mingled and gathered around a table that had old pictures of the bride and groom framed about. The love these two shared for each other couldn’t have been any more evident. Once they signed the guest book, guest found their seats and began listening to soft strums of a guitarist.

Soon after Luisa walked down the isle and dropped the jaws of many as her inner beauty radiated throughout the room. Her effortlessly elegant “up do” and simple diamond drop earrings paired together perfectly, giving her the look of a timeless classic bride.

This elegant couple got married in front of an old fireplace that was covered in fresh garden roses as well as other beautiful flowers with vintage candle holders placed throughout. During the ceremony Luisa and Evan shared communion and prayer together then sealed their covenant with a kiss! With family being so important to Luisa, she had her florist use her great grandmothers vintage mason jars for some of the table centerpieces. Guest enjoyed a seated and relaxed Texas style BBQ lunch and close friends made speeches that brought tears to all!

The brunch aspect was heightened when Luisa and Evan cut into their three-tiered cinnamon roll flavored wedding cake, created by the bride’s best friend and bridesmaid. Vintage china was used to serve the cake and coffee. Luisa brought forth elements of a modern bride to her wedding by incorporating pops of pink vibrant hues to her florals, which added a nice cheerful color to her images. The newlyweds were sent off with a flower toss and lots of love from family and friends. The love Evan and Luisa share was such a blessing to witness, much less capture.

From Mint Photography… Melanie and Frank’s wedding took place at one of the most unique venues in the Austin area, Le San Michele. We love the mix of architecture and nature that this venue provides. Melanie’s bridal style was impeccable. She looked beyond elegant. The whole day was styled impeccably, and this couple was the sweetest – we couldn’t be happier to have been a part in capturing everything!

From the Bride… Leading up to our day took a lot of planning. Our first objective was to find that perfect venue for a garden wedding. We knew that we wanted something timeless and vintage, but finding the right kind of venue was a task. We decided on a venue that best described Versailles meets Sante Fe. We love to travel and lived abroad, so the atmosphere that was created fit our personalities and lifestyle perfectly. We rented various lounging areas that set up the relaxed vibe but something that matched our colors, which were blush and lavender. My husband made our seating chart which was a peg board made into a door. Our guests picked a key and then found their table, in which laid a matching door knob. He is so handy! We did have limited floral arrangements; we only really used them for our arch way, centerpieces and of course boutonnieres. To save money the flowers were primarily seasonal and color coordinated. I mixed my bouqet with succulents which my husband and I fell in love with. If I were to give any advice in planning this theme is to have very subtle accents of color and decor.
