From Two Times PhotographyThis Spring wedding was set at a ranch in Wimberley, TX. The family of the bride and groom, the bridesmaids, and the groomsmen all stayed on site throughout the weekend. The rustic and homey feel of Red Corral Ranch made it a comfortable and inviting event! Grey, peach, and yellow were prevalent throughout the event – as was burlap! From the overcast sky to the lights hanging in the barn, Brandi and Colton’s wedding was romantic. With a photo booth, a game of “cornhole”, and lots of dancing, this wedding was fun for everyone involved! The love that Brandi, Colton, and their families share made this such a joyous weekend!

Desert Engagement Inspiration in Hues of Blue

After poring over the images from Brett Heidebrecht, I’m thoroughly convinced that all engagement shoots should be captured in a desert. There’s something about that dreamy red rock landscape that photographs impeccably. And with the cool blue styling by Kylie Swanson paired with king protea florals by Poppy Lane Design and the prettiest hand lettered save the date courtesy of Lindsay Letters, you’ll probably agree that this inspiration is one for the books.

From Brett HeidebrechtThe desert can be a scary place. Ragged rocks for days with not much life other than cactus sprouting up and scorching sun. But there is a lot of beauty in the desert as well. I teamed up with Kylie to produce this beautiful engagement session inspiration and the team she put together as the creative director and stylist was over the top. What better way to cool down the desert landscape than with hues of blue… so Kylie reached out to the folks at Neiman Marcus about outfitting our couple and we were blown away that they obliged to provide the wardrobe from head to toe along with some beautiful jewelry. My favorite had to be the light blue and very form fitting Victoria Beckham dress. It was such a nice contrast against the desert colors. We knew we wanted to add some floral elements but we didn’t want to forget that we were in the desert so we kept it as simple as possible and Poppy Lane Design really came through in a big way. Lastly we had the amazingly talented Juliet Grace and Lindsay Letters produce a map of the desert as well as a save the date to tie everything together. With all the details taken care of by Kylie, all that was left to me to do was shoot this beautiful and in love couple as they enjoyed some time gallivanting around in the desert.

Intimate Dinner Party Inspiration at Ya Ya Farm & Orchard

If the mister and I ever renewed our vows, I would want it to look exactly like this gorgeous dinner party beautifully captured by Sara Hasstedt. Intimate yet gorgeous styled by Jessica Hearing A Vintage Affair Events everything from the beautiful florals from Violet Floral Design to the stunning stationery by Lana’s Shop makes me want to start planning our vow renewal ASAP. See why here.


From Sara HasstedtThis shoot was inspired by the idea of a sweet intimate dinner amongst friends enveloped by trees and candlelight in an orchard. All the details, from the blush-toned Watters corset & skirt combination layered with the ivory Augusta Jones skirt for added dimension and softness, to the varied tones of pink, berry and creams in the florals, and the dainty whimsy of the white polka dotted table linen, hand-selected from a local specialty fabric shop by stylist, Jessica Hearing, were carefully curated to create an overall aesthetic that would speak to a very feminine and fanciful bride.

The menu design combined hand lettering and a subtle watercolor wash. These unique menu boxes were secured with a colorful ribbon and wax seal. Inside the menu box guests will find a delightful treat, french macarons. We love that this menu doubles as a favor. One of our favorite details were the long delicate tapered candles that sprouted out of mini greenery arrangements at the table. We loved how easily this married the romantic ambiance with the outdoor setting.

The florals for this styled shoot were designed to capture the feminine yet wild and free romantic in us all! We loved the “lipstick colored floral palette” of Peonies, Garden Roses, Ranunculus and Clematis mixed with a home-grown aesthetic of fresh berries and foliage. It was the perfect color complement to the ladylike hues of the dress and the awesomely organic outdoor setting. Organized elegance in a old country setting could never be wrong.

We really wanted the paper goods to reflect the wedding palette and our elegant bride.
The invitations were each mounted onto thick watercolor paper with a wash of deep pink to make the copy really pop while keeping the overall look soft and whimsical. Illustrated flowers in the liner really completed the look.

Whimsical Pink Wedding in Austin

When weddings like this come along, I thank my lucky stars for vendors like Bird Dog Wedding who make planning impossibly chic events look easy. They worked with one darling couple who opted for Southern style on their own terms, and Julie Cate’s camera didn’t miss a beat. Settle into page upon page of pin-able goodness right here.

From The Bride…Ted and I met when we were both working at a bookstore here in Austin. I had just moved back home after college in New York, and Ted had managed to work his way down here from Fargo via Minneapolis. Needless to say, we’re both total nerds and revel in finding that other person who effortlessly “gets” your weirdness.

Everyone says your wedding is your day, all about you. But we both knew that probably the biggest reason we were throwing this party was for our family and friends. So throughout the entire planning process, we tried to keep our wedding party and guests very much in mind.

The venue was perfect. I knew I wanted an outdoor wedding, which in Texas means any time except summer pretty much. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in March is as lovely as it gets. (My “something blue” was a pressed bluebonnet in my shoe.) Somehow, it had rained every weekend in March and then for our wedding it was absolutely gorgeous. We had guests from places as cold as Minneapolis, Massachusetts and even Iceland ready to move down here :)

With my bridesmaids, I wanted them to feel beautiful so I just gave them a color palette, and I was really happy with the result. Ted’s dad runs the men’s clothing store that’s been their family business for about 100 years, so he generously helped out a lot of the groomsmen with their suits.

When I started planning, I made one Pinterest board (naturally), but as I delved deep into the world of wedding blogs, I found I had to create a spinoff board just for all the florals. Flowers, flowers, flowers, all the time. My uncle, an award-winning pastry chef, made the wedding cake, and even though he’s so talented and could do anything, I made him just do white fondant so I could decorate the cake with flowers.

Luckily, I found Bird Dog Weddings. From our first meeting, I knew Emily had the same vision that I did and it was such a relief to just let her and Sarah do their thing and know it would turn out perfect. And they didn’t call me crazy when I gave them a list of flowers I didn’t want to use based on their Victorian meanings, haha (sorry anemones).

And Julie, our photographer, was such a delight. I wasn’t even going to send her a query because she was based in Florida, but I just loved her photography that I had seen online so I figured I might as well just in case. But she was happy to travel to Austin and was so sweet that she just put all of her subjects at ease and made them look wonderful.

When everything came together, it was even better than I had imagined. You can plan and plan and plan, you can attend millions of other weddings, but there’s really no way to prepare for the sheer joy of marrying the person you love.
