Geometric Themed Wedding full of DIY

For two architects tying the knot, this geometric themed wedding makes total sense. And it’s done in such a subtle way that allows the true beauty and simplicity to really shine through. From the DIY concrete candles to the plexiglass escort cards hand-made by the couple, this day is as personalized as they come. For even more, hop on over to the full gallery of images captured by Sunny 16 Photography.

From the Bride…We played around with so many different concepts. At first we wanted to do something revolving around location (I grew up in Texas, Brian in Singapore, and we met in Copenhagen – or Boston, depends on who’s telling the story!). So on the invitation, we drew a dymaxion map with our significant cities. Then we wanted to try something special for the wedding favors and our overly excited response was, ‘let’s make it out of concrete!’ Also, for some inexplicable reason hexgrids, polygons, random geometric shapes and san serif fonts kept finding their way into our planning. Somehow it always came back to nerdy architecture references (Surprise, we’re architects). It was inescapable. Even if we wanted another theme, there would be architectural references – so in the end, we went with the flow.

A huge part of the DIY came about because we’ve been playing with lasers for ages now (btw, mad props to Kristen @MakeATX). Although it made for an insane deadline, the wedding was a perfect excuse to do the things we’d never quite found the time for. We had an amazing time designing the candle holders and pouring multiple concrete material tests (which for some reason came out shinier in Copenhagen–we think it’s the hard water). The molds were lasercut out of thin sheets of plexi, hand folded, poured with a concrete mix and cured for a couple days- the entire family helped out. It was pretty funny seeing architects, computer programmers, and nasa scientists sitting around covered in concrete. We also made a bunch of other laser tests, these included the thick plexiglas escort cards, favor tags, table numbers and the fold up polygons scattered around the room. Really we just like playing with laser cutters.

Another source of inspiration was the location itself. The majority of guests had never been to Texas before and a large portion was coming from out of country. We wanted something unique to my hometown but also something that described the modern architecture that we were interested in. Barr Mansion, a literal barn with a modern glass façade, was a lovely blend of these inspirations. This juxtaposition gave us an opportunity to incorporate (without clashing with the modern elements) the more romantic pieces like gold picture frames, antique lawn furniture and the chandeliers hanging in the giant pecan tree.

From Kristi Wright PhotographyPatricia + Andreas had an amazing vintage style DIY wedding at Springdale Farm in Austin, Texas! Springdale is a real working farm in an urban area of Austin. It’s a rare treat to find a wedding venue that has such beautiful open space in the city. All of their friends and family worked hard to help put everything together. The groom, a former chef, cooked all of the food including having a pig raised just for their wedding day, organic and free range.

From Taylor Lord Photography…I loved everything about this wedding from this past Winter! Petals Ink crafted the most beautiful florals. The overall feel was warm and full of love even though it was EXTREMELY cold!!! Loot Vintage Rentals did an amazing job setting up the furniture where the entire bridal party sat during the ceremony, as well as the vintage rugs that made the aisle runner! They also crafted a frame setup with the guests’ seating, and amazing vignettes everywhere of vintage furniture with origami paper cranes as the overhang. The favors were baby succulents in biodegradable vases. It couldn’t have been a more gorgeous wedding, and the Allan House was the PERFECT venue!
