We’ve really seen a resurgence in the wedding world of a more formal affair. It’s classic turned up a notch or two and this garden wedding couldn’t be a more perfect example. With imagery by Loft Photographie, this gem is an elegant palette of neutrals mixed with a classic formal dinner all designed by 36th Street Events and greenery galore by Verbena Floral Design. Find more right here along with the film of the day by Perry Video below.

From the Bride… I wanted the feel to be a bit bohemian rustic with a hint of formality. I brought that in by adding hints of black; in the invitations, table names, programs and in the black and white stripe linens. His family is from California so we welcomed them to Texas by serving comfort food; fried chicken and Tex-Mex to name a few.

I grew up in Houston, he in California. We met while living in NYC and now live in San Francisco, so all of the tables were named after meaningful places to us. Above the decor though, we just wanted everyone to have the best night ever. Our friends and family are still talking about what an epic party it was! I wish we could do it all again!

From the Photographers… Natalie and Andrew’s wedding day was lush, elegant, and absolutely romantic! Their ceremony & reception took place at Laguna Gloria, an art museum nestled in the trees along the banks of Town Lake. The ceremony overlooked the sparkling water, while the tented reception took place on the front lawn of the museum. Every last detail of Natalie & Andrew’s day was intentional and meaningful. Natalie even designed the gorgeous floor length gowns that her maids wore!

Beautiful Fall Pastel Colored Wedding

If tomorrow I went blind, I could do so happily knowing that I’d already seen this wedding from Mint Photography. It’s everything pretty is and everything pretty will ever be. It’s romance embodied and the flowers have done me in. To be frank, it’s the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever, ever seen.

From Mint Photography… Kelly & Brey’s wedding was at one of our favorite Austin wedding venues! Nature’s Point provides the perfect setting for a gorgeous wedding surrounded by greenery and beaming sunlight. The colors that they chose and the unique florals made the setting even more gorgeous. To top of the beautiful day Kelly & Brey were just so thrilled to be marrying each other that their happiness really showed in the photos, which we love of course! We think this wedding was the perfect mix of elegance and nature… and love.

From the Bride… We met in Tokyo in 2005. We were both teaching English. We were good friends at first but we both knew there was something more to it and in 2006 we became a couple.

Our theme started off as “light” but I think as it progressed when we found our quote (“We went to find ourselves and found each other”) and that became the theme, as it was on our invitations, our sign and our video.

We made the bar signs (“Are you Reddy for a night Phull of fun?”), the escort table signs and escort cards which were based on the skylines of our respective home cities (London, Chicago) and the city we met in (Tokyo).

Our planner Beth made the main marquee sign which was the centerpiece for the room. It contained our quote – “We went to find ourselves and found each other.”

We bought some speech bubble white and chalk boards from Etsy so people could write down their marital advice and take pictures of themselves.

We also asked a friend to put together a video of pictures of us growing up with our friends and families and then us together with each other’s friends and families which we played before our entrance to the reception hall.

We found having a wedding planner was key. Especially seen as it was a location wedding. Also, we used the website wedsimple.com to keep our guests informed through our website, to do our RSVPs and keep tabs on who was coming.

My favorite moment of the day was peeping through the doors just before our entrance into the reception hall, watching all of our guests laughing (and crying) at our video.

My biggest piece of advice for brides and grooms planning their wedding today: You will not please everyone. Don’t try to.
