From Nbarrett PhotographyGorgeous, May wedding with beautiful vibrant colors. This wedding was an eclectic mix of Spring blooms arranged in Spanish terra cotta on gold sparkled table tops. And to top it off a stunning floral curtain installation for the ceremony. From the Bride… For our wedding day the first thing we knew we wanted was a fabulous photographer. Natalie was the perfect fit! From the first time I met Natalie all the way to the engagement shoot (her adorable bulldog Magnolia kept us laughing the whole time) we fed off of her energy which made our wedding day perfect. We also knew we wanted a May wedding since the flowers and light are the best reminders of the starting of our engagement. After spotting Hickory Street Annex while driving through Dallas, we instantly knew that the architecture and freedom of the venue is exactly what we were looking for! The vintage yet industrial feel and renovated bridal suite is what made me fall in love. We were at the liberty of having both the ceremony and reception in one location but the venue still had a natural flow… especially since the guests could use the repurposed bridal suite as a cocktail area. Of course, planning a wedding is stressful. I eventually realized that collecting every little detail of our wedding is not my cup of tea so we asked Amanda from Hickory Street Annex to help. She was amazing! She knew that we wanted to keep the wedding small and intimate by only having 75 guests. Knowing that a wedding isn’t complete without magnificent flowers…we met with Alicia from Bows & Arrows who knew exactly what we were looking for. We wanted something completely different and to be super vibrant! The deep purple, bright pinks, and oranges from the flowers is what fueled the inspiration for our wedding. She and her wonderful team created the most astonishing hand strung flowers for the ceremony back drop and they used unbelievable terra cotta pots for the centerpieces. They even set aside the perfect colored blooms to be placed on our delicious cakes and dessert bar (my favorite part of the wedding)! Most importantly, the best part of our wedding day was sharing it with our little boy, family, and guests! Their love and support was the only thing we wanted on our wedding day.

Rustic Springtime Texas Wedding

I had to double check that this was actually a real wedding, the photos are just that perfectly lovely. But then toss in that Texas attitude, the cowboy boots and the cutest pup ever and I’m practically begging to be one of this bride and groom’s buddies.  Select Studios and Luxe Films joined in the festivities and captured the whole two-steppin’ good time for us all to enjoy.

Barn

From The Bride… My husband and I had dated for 5.5 years and we finally tied the knot on May 10, 2014. Our wedding and reception took place at a beautiful place called ‘Top O’ The Hill’ in Montgomery, TX. (We were the fifth and final wedding held here, so they no longer have a website). The venue was a family’s weekend home that for a short time held weddings. Our wedding was all about the beauty of the outdoors. The ceremony took place on the top of the hill which overlooked the gorgeous trees and land. The reception dinner took place next to the barn beneath a group lighted trees. The barn served as the perfect dance hall for the reception.

There were a lot of DIY projects that my family and I made. My dad made the rustic planter boxes out of old fence posts. They served as our table center pieces. I painted the canvases that were the back drop for our self serve photo booth. I made the streamers that were on the back of the ceremony chairs. (which can be seen blowing in the wind in the video) and my Aunt made my gorgeous cake. I wanted simple and for the flowers to be the only embellishment.

Some of my favorite touches from our wedding include having a family friend sing and play acoustic guitar during our ceremony. The bridal party processional was  ‘All Those Pretty Lights’ by Andrew Belle and the bridal processional was ‘Ends of the Earth’ by Lord Huron. We had a featured beer, Hoss Lager by Great Divide. I was able to order a bunch of cases from the Colorado based brewery which made for a unique ‘specialty’ drink. Pretty cool to have a beer feature my new last name. I loved having our goldendoodle ‘puppy daughter,’ June be a part of our big day. The florist made a beautiful flower collar for her to wear. It just wouldn’t have been the same without her. 

Exiting the reception in my dad’s classic 1956 Ford F150. He’s been working on this truck since I was a little girl. It’s now a beautifully restored show truck. My wedding dress which was custom made by a dear friend and talented designer, David Peck. His clothes are made and designed in Houston, Tx where my husband and I live. Matt’s grooms cake was very unique because it featured his two favorite hobbies, dirt track racing and kayak fishing. It was an exact replica of his dirt track car that he and his dad used to race. The kayak resting on top of the car is an exact replica of his kayak.

Another favorite touch was our DIY photo booth. Our guests took their own pictures and pasted along with a message in a book. I loved being able to look at the photo book on the way to our honeymoon. Also, for our first dance we two-stepped to ‘She’s Like Texas’ by Josh Abbott. Our love for Texas country was shown throughout our big day.

The day was absolutely perfect and exactly Matt and I. It was a bit of rustic mixed with a bit of chic. The video does an amazing job of capturing the feel our wedding. We are excited to exclusively share with you the most important day of our lives.

Elegant Wedding at Southwest School of Art

If I could sprinkle bits of gold on everything, I would do just that. It’s my belief that gold accents make everything better. But combined with black, and we’ve reached a whole new level. This elegant affair at the Southwest School Art is pure style, and has me reconsidering my own wedding color palette. Christine Sargologos snapped every chic detail, all available for your Pinterest pleasure right this way.

From Christine Sargologos Photography… Callyn & Eric are so easy going and relaxed, with an obvious and enormous love for each other. It meant the entire day was full of sweet little moments and tons of laughter. Both ceremony and reception were at the Southwest School of Art, a former convent with plenty of San Antonio heritage. With that backdrop they added a classic ivory, gold and black palette, along with playful fiesta-themed touches as homage to the city; the perfect balance of elegance and party. Guests loved the the mariachi band and table numbers, and the sombreros and paper floral crowns that were given as party favors. Dinner was served under the vaulted ceilings of the former chapel. The French Connection beautifully transformed the space so guests dined at vintage church pews in candlelight. Of course, nothing is more memorable than the dance party that followed. I think it’s safe to say everyone made it to the floor for at least a song or two. There’s nothing better than a celebration that blends sweetness, romance and a little silliness!
