Thankfully, Maxine was kind enough to share all the pretty details with us, so read on to get the scoop!

From Maxine Owens…. Our design process starts with really getting to know and understand the key element in the event: The Bride!  We love spending time with our brides and couples to get to know them as people, who they are, and what they want their guests to experience and feel at their wedding.  There are the basics, like colors, types of flowers they like, but we’re really interested in finding out what elements are special to them and what makes them unique as a couple.  Creating a custom design that helps them express themselves and share that with their guests is our ultimate goal.

Upon meeting Sara, we immediately fell in love with her overall vision for her wedding.  Together with Birds of A Feather Events, we created a dreamy floral concept for a classic garden look focusing on the natural elegance of whites, creams, and greens with pops of delicate blush.  When designing, are alway inspired by our brides’ wedding venues and why they select them.  Sara is a librarian and opted for an historic mansion with large, mature trees and lush green courtyards.  The stately house features influences of English Georgian and French Renaissance styling.  We aimed to continue this aesthetic through our choices of floral in order to create a consistent and seamless design.

With her neutral color palette, we combined soft, delicate blooms such as peonies, sweet pea, and garden roses with bold dark pops of black scabiosa and black and white anemones for definition.  Since Sara loved a garden feel, we combined these blooms with different textured greenery.  Camelia, gunni eucalyptus, spirea, and clematis foliage are some of my favorite greens to use.  And we couldn’t resist a little bit of trailing vine, so we definitely needed the gorgeous blush and white jasmine as an accent.  Putting these elements together in a loose, organic composition helped create that timeless garden feel she was looking for.  We accented the bouquet with hand-dyed blush and ivory silk ribbon from Froufrou Chic as a final romantic, feminine touch.  And thank you to Apryl Ann Photography for capturing Sara and her bouquet so perfectly!

Classic + Romantic Texas Engagement

Picture perfect? Well, that’s a major understatement when it comes to these two. Because not only does their Southern e-sesh serve up some serious style, it also happens to be set on an Italian style property with major curb appeal. I’m talking stunning gardens and sweet kisses and it’s all lives in a gallery that is just too good not to share. See it all fromVasia Photography here!

From Vasia PhotographyI was so excited to have the opportunity to travel to Texas for the first time to visit some dear friends. The trip was made even better when Aman & Justin asked me to do their engagement session while I was in town!

Le San Michele is a heavenly location, just outside of Austin it is a beautiful rustic stone cottage nestled on a gorgeous Italian style property. I hope you love this one as much as I do!

From The Bride…Garrett and I were fortunate enough not only to have the wedding of our dreams, but also to be able to have it in Garrett’s backyard. As we started wedding planning and researching venues, we quickly realized that nothing could beat a backyard reception. Our goal was to create an environment that felt secluded, tucked away, almost enchanted, even though we were set in the middle of the Texas Hill Country. What we were able to create over the next few months, after a lot of help from both of our parents, as well as a little makeover to the yard and a few large tents, far exceeded both Garrett and I’s expectations. With the guidance of an outstanding wedding planner and amazing vendors we were able to spend our perfect wedding night celebrating our new life together with our closest family and friends.

Outdoor Summer Hill Country Wedding

Strictly Texan with a touch of glamour, this fabulous Vista West Ranch fete from Heather Hawkins is Southern with a shabby chic flair.

From Heather Hawkins… I’m eager to share this sweet outdoor summer wedding with you! It had been pouring rain all Spring in Texas and the clouds held back for this outdoor ceremony, lucky for the bride Katie!

From the beautiful Bride… My husband, Dalton, and I have a very unique love story. It’s one that we love to tell over and over, even when we sometimes get caught up in life. Our wedding was an exact reflection of our story, which began in Austin TX five years ago. Originally from New Jersey and having moved to Chicago for college, an outdoor Texas wedding was not exactly what I had always dreamed of since a little girl. However, it couldn’t have been more fitting for us as a couple. I wanted to bring to life all of the many qualities that made me fall in love with Dalton for our special day. When I met him, I found myself quickly at ease with his laid-back nature, free spirit, and gentle heart. Born and raised in Texas, Dalton grew up spending a lot of time on his family’s ranch in West Texas. On our first visit to Vista West Ranch, we immediately connected with the rustic hillside beauty and intricate Texas charm that I myself have come to love. Among all qualities about Dalton that I appreciate most, much like what I loved most about Vista West, was how different he was from any other relationship I have had. He was a country boy, yet sophisticated and simple with so much character; he could be quiet at times and others full of life. It was a familiar feeling, and one I was eager to share with all our friends and family a little over a year later.

After finding our golden venue, we got even luckier with owners Joe and Stacy from Vista West Ranch, who could not have been more inviting and accommodating throughout the whole planning process. From beginning to end, the perfect day we had imagined turned out to be just that and more. Every little detail was so well thought out by our wonderful vendors, “Team Huey,” especially our Day-Of Coordinator, Jaime, from Coordinate This. There’s something so surreal and romantic about an outdoor ceremony in the middle of Texas Hill Country that speaks to you, as if we were the only ones in that moment promising our lives to each other. I could not have imagined a more meaningful spot to say our vows than under the gorgeous lace and eucalyptus-entwined trellis that Lindsay from Petal Pushers designed for us. Continuing the tone of our ceremony, our head dinner table was lined with the same fresh eucalyptus runner over a lovely vintage farm table. The room was surrounded by natural exposed wood, draped burlap curtains and hanging ball twine lights, while outside our guests enjoyed our signature cocktails and sugar cookies by the bonfire under the twinkling-lit oak trees. Needless to say, the night was our kind of “dreamy.”

Our Texas Wedding would not have been complete without our wedding party dressed in cowboy boots and a first dance to Texas Country artist, Wade Bowen. The love and support was so present in the room, and looking back we would not have changed a thing. Thanks to our amazing photographer, Heather Hawkins, we are able to enjoy looking at all our photos of the day and night reminiscing all the little moments that seem to fly by so fast. Many traveled so far to share in our special day and now we’ll forever have the once in a lifetime memories.

From Apryl Ann PhotographySara and Josh, a librarian and scientist from Chicago, were married on a Saturday afternoon in the historic district of Dallas. Their wedding was filled with elegant and organic details such as the silk and willow ribbon tied to each individual wooden engraved coaster. Or the arch made of cream and white florals. And because Sara is such a word worm, they had a poetry maker there typing up mini poems on a typewriter based on what the guests wanted.

From Awake PhotographyLeah and Brian’s Cali-Tex wedding in the stunning Texas Hill Country was the truly a day to be remembered. Leah and her fabulous side braid were showstoppers alongside her bridesmaids in mix-matched blush sequins.
