These Children Had the Sweetest Gift for Their Parents’ Wedding

Less than 50 people gathered to witness Melanie and Nathan exchange rings and vows at their heartfelt destination wedding in Texas Hill Country. But the sweet, intimate ceremony wasn’t the only heartwarming moment of the evening. Later, after a delicious meal from Cartewheels Catering, a few of the Bride and Groom’s children sang a song as a wedding gift to their newlywed parents. And thankfully Philip Thomas Photography caught it all for us to enjoy in The Vault!


From Philip Thomas PhotographyA charming destination wedding in the hill country of Texas in a small German town called Fredericksburg. Hoffman Haus is an upscale luxury bed and breakfast with a once tobacco barn in the center of the property that has been restored and now called The Great Hall.

The welcome dinner was catered by Cartewheels Catering who served farm to table cuisine under bistro lights and long tables decorated with herbs down the center of the table.

The guests received a welcome farmer’s basket filled with Peach tea, a locally made candle, marinating sauce, and lavender soap from a nearby farm.

The ceremony near a pond on the property with Melanie and Nathan’s closest family and friends, less than 50 people gathered to see them exchange rings and vows. It was heartfelt, sincere, and emotional.

Cartewheels designed another delicious menu for the reception. Dinner and dancing followed inside The Great Hall with pale blush pink and mint green linens with loosely arranged floral in urns and weaved through driftwood, a common thing found in the Texas Hill Country. Watercolored menu cards and place cards by Rachel Nieman at each place setting.

Melanie and Nathan’s love was so apparent as they were surrounded by their children, a few of whom offered a song as their gift to the newlyweds.

Rose Quartz + Serenity-Filled Texas Winery Bridal Inspiration

It’s no secret — we’re pretty in love with Pantone’s 2016 colors of the year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. And, we’re not the only ones. Using the rosy pink and pretty purple as inspiration, Chic Fleur Weddings And Events and Something Pretty Floral created a soft and dreamy wedding inspiration at Texas’ Grape Creek Vineyards. Head to The Vault for all the pretty inspiration thanks to photos from Tenth And Grace!

From Chic Fleur Weddings And EventsTexas has an up-and-coming wine industry, and the beautiful wineries throughout Texas Hill Country are a popular spot for weddings and special events. This inspiration shoot was designed to showcase the beauty of Texas wineries at a time of a year that is typically considered a slower season for weddings. Winter in this part of Texas is mild, and the landscape remains green – this beautiful landscape shows that you don’t have to get married in Tuscany or Napa to enjoy a winery wedding, even in fall or winter. Designed by Chic Fleur Weddings & Events, this shoot combined the beauty of a local Texas winery with the new Pantone colors of the year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. Something Pretty Floral used these popular colors as inspiration for lush floral arrangements that complemented the pastel colors of the Texas landscape, while the Styling Stewardess kept the makeup soft and neutral as a reflection of Pantone’s Rose Quartz. We hope this shoot will serve as inspiration for brides considering a winery wedding in Texas, or those who want to incorporate the colors of the year in a beautiful and timeless way.

Whimsical Fall Inspiration Session in Enchanted Rock State Park

Typically, flowers are associated with springtime, but this fall inspiration session with the most beautiful autumn blooms will make you think otherwise. Flower Shack Blooms worked absolute floral magic with the stunning flower crown and the lush bouquet. And when set against a naturally beautiful backdrop, lovely lace gown and dramatic hair and makeup, they really pop. See it all from Chandra’s Collection Photography in THE VAULT!


From Flower Shack BloomsThis was a gorgeous whimsical fall shoot complete with a lush bouquet and floral crown. We went for a bolder look of plum lips with soft romantic hairstyle. We used chocolate and burgundy accents to bring out the fall look in floral choices. Hellerbores, dahlias, amnesia roses and blushing bride proteas are a few goodies that were used. A gorgeous lace gown complete with the ever so lovely Texas light made this a magical set up.
