Vintage Plane Engagement Session

Engagement sessions are sort of my favorite thing ever. Especially when they include two adorable love bugs and a killer vintage airplane. Luxe Photography snapped the whole shebang, and you can peruse all the pretty right over here.

From Luxe Photography… It started with a couple of planes, a vintage suitcase and floppy hat and led to a remote rock cliff at the lake with a breathtaking sunset.

Gabriel Springs Wedding from Vintage&Lace + Red Rogue Photography

Texas weddings rock.  Plain and simple.  But when you throw in some beautiful bridesmaids in boots, a bundle of wonderful vendors and a bride and groom that really know a thing or two about fabulous parties, they rock and then some.  Case in point?  This darling day captured by Red Rogue Photography, a fabulous rustic meets classic Gabriel Springs affair with more than its fair share of pretty.  Ready to dive into every love-filled moment planned to perfection by Vintage&Lace?  Join me in the gallery for so much more.

From Red Rogue Photography… William and Lauren’s wedding was held in the Texas Hill Country at Gabriel Springs in Georgetown, Texas. It was a spring wedding, held on April 4, 2013. The inspiration was simply Texas chic. Everything featured at the wedding were local brands. They chose a neutral color palette with vintage touches, burlap, lace, DIY and a little bit of flare. The bride was inspired mostly by Pinterest to make “Happily Ever After” signs, directional signs with the bride and groom’s cities they grew up in and where the families were coming in from, lace runners, a DIY “Here Comes Your Girl” sign carried by junior bridesmaids and homemade lawn games (bag toss and horse shoes). There were vintage coke bottles and crates the couple found that were used as decoration in the ceremony and reception. The tables were a mixture of alternating burlap and lace overlays topped with cedar coins cut for the couple, wild assortments of garden rose, stock, baby’s breath and various other flowers in antique tea pots, milk bottles, bud vases and lanterns. The couple salvaged marquee letters and the groom made a lighted LOVE sign for the reception background.

Some of the personal touches included the couples rings carried out on a family bible that had belonged to the groom’s great grandfather, a guitar signed by guests instead of a guest book, and exchanging cowboy boots as wedding gifts to each other to have the first dance in. The bridesmaids all wore mismatched dresses paired with cowboy boots, and the groomsmen wore tan suit pants and white kicks, after the grooms personal style. The bride wore a Jim Hjelm trumpet gown and the groom was in a slim fit Express mens suit. They served texas beer, Lonestar and ShinerBock assortments, Llano wine, local Uncle Billys BBQ, lemonade and cucumber water and Sweet Treets cupcakes in flavors 24 carrot, strawberry champagne and roasted banana and honey.

From Vintage&LaceThis was such a fun, energetic, creative couple to work with! Lauren had a clear vision for her wedding day style which made implementing the details a breeze. They took everything in stride, even two of the groomsmen breaking down on their way from the airport and having to call a taxi which delayed starting the ceremony, and definitely made the day about having a great time with family and friends. It was a celebration of life and love!

Georgetown, Texas Wedding from Krystle Akin Photography

Here at SMP, we have a list a mile long of different wedding styles we LOVE. Today we are definitely going to have to add Sweet Girly Romance to that list, because this Texas soiree has Sweet Girly Romance pouring out of every image from Krystle Akin Photography. Sweet Girly Romance in the broach bouquet, Sweet Girly Romance in the blushing bride, Sweet Girly Romance in the red, pink and purple decor. And Sweet Girly Romance in the gallery!

Chris and I went to high school together but we didn’t really get to know each other until we worked together at Inks Lake State Park. While in college, we would spend our summers back home in Burnet, TX working at the park store. After work we would go swimming, kayaking, and fishing and quickly fell in love. After five years together, Chris proposed. I was totally exhausted after a long day at work when Chris told me he had a surprise for me. Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE Dr. Pepper so when he said he had a surprise I immediately thought he had got me one. “It’s a big surprise,” he said. So, naturally, I was thinking, “Yes! Route 44 Dr. Pepper from Sonic!” He went into the bedroom to get the “surprise,” got on one knee, and gave me the best surprise of my life!!! Way better than a Dr. Pepper.

We chose Heritage Oaks Clubhouse because of the gorgeous wood floors and windows looking out onto the lovely pond behind the building. With a wedding in December, there is no predicting the weather so we wanted to make sure we had a big enough facility to accommodate everyone inside.

I guess the theme for the wedding was “romantic vintage bling”. I have always loved vintage jewelry and when I saw a brooch bouquet I fell in LOVE! After that, everything kind of snowballed into this rhinestone wonderland. My dress was lace with a sash that had rhinestones, the bride’s cake was done with rhinestones and some antique brooches, and I also incorporated the brooches with the bridesmaid bouquets. I’ve always found reds and purples romantic and great for a December wedding so I knew I wanted them to be my wedding colors. Everything really came together better than I could have hoped! It was the best day of my life and it couldn’t have been more perfect!

From the bride… Kevin and I met and fell in love at Northern Arizona University in 2007. His proposal came nearly three years after we met, while I was visiting him on his birthday in Saint Louis. We began discussing details almost instantly and determined that we would need a long engagement to make all our wedding wishes come true. After much consideration, we knew a fall wedding in Texas would provide us with the most beautiful weather for an outdoor ceremony. Plus, we chose our wedding date, October 1st, 2011, because it fell on the weekend of our 4th Anniversary. It only took a month for us to find the most important piece of our wedding: the venue. We chose Kindred Oaks in Georgetown, Texas, because of its beautiful outdoor ceremony site, and covered pavilion for the reception. The venue was romantic, rustic, and elegant, which was everything we were looking for. The staff at Kindred Oaks was also very accommodating. We valued the importance of lightening and music at our wedding because we wanted to create a relaxed and fun vibe for our guests. We used Complete Music for their D.J. service and they did the lighting and monogram for our dance floor as well. Kevin was most interested in the food for our wedding. Catherine from Eudora’s Cuisine was an incredible caterer. She knew that we wanted a fall-flavored menu and she helped us create just that! We had chicken with a cranberry chutney glaze, steak filets wrapped in bacon, pumpkin manicotti, butternut squash soup, seasoned fall veggies and a cranberry-walnut salad. It was all so fitting for our fall wedding! Another important feature at our wedding was the cupcakes. This was also one of the most fun parts of planning the wedding. We met Katie from Hill Country Cupcake and knew that she would be so great to work with. She encouraged us to do all the flavors we loved, which included pumpkin, red velvet, cobbler, bananas foster, chocolate, and a caramel pecan-flavored cupcake called “The Longhorn.”

The absolute most important vendor for me was the florist. I did lots of research to find a well-respected florist with great reviews. I fell upon Beth Richards with Exquisite Petals and I was in love with her work. She made my vision of big, lush centerpieces and rustic, wrought-iron candelabras and chandeliers into a reality. My favorite flowers, peonies, are not in season in the fall, so she helped me to find flowers that resembled them. We ended up filling the venue with English garden roses, mostly in white. Since our colors were chocolate brown, peach, ivory and champagne gold, I wanted to use mostly ivory and peach flowers. She incorporated the brown by using the wrought-iron candelabras, and each table was covered in a champagne colored silk fabric.

Every detail of the wedding was an important one. I did many DIY projects like the cupcake menu, dinner menu, bar menu, invitations, seating chart and programs, and I also framed several of our engagement photos. I also ordered cupcake toppers, favor tags, and table numbers from Etsy. Since 90% of our guests were from outside of Texas, we thought it would be fun to showcase some rustic Texas charm. We sent our guests away with a glass, barn-shaped jar filled with Texas peach honey. Those individual touches really made our wedding unique to our style. Lastly, we must add that the most important thing we did for our wedding was rent a red, vintage Chevy truck for our wedding photos. The old truck in our wedding photos gave us the rustic, romantic style we were looking at creating on our special day. Now, when we look back at photos, the old truck reminds us of the feelings we felt and the style we were able to capture on our special day. Besides all of the amazing vendors that we listed above we had a wonderful photographer, Mike Reed, to help us remember the day.
