From Ashlyn Gibbens Hobbs of Sweet Magnolia Floral… Located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, most of the weddings we design at Sweet Magnolia are destination weddings. Because family and friends have traveled so far to help celebrate, it is really important that the flowers reflect the unique personalities of our clients and truly encompass the vision each couple has for their wedding day! Known for lush bouquets and garden style arrangements, our designs at Sweet Magnolia are full of seasonal materials sourced from local farmers and our aesthetic is one driven by the nature around us.
We start with a color pallet and key words to begin our design process. Hannah was inspired by watercolor, and knew she wanted raspberry blooms with pops of bright colors to be the main focus of her wedding decor. The theme was “Boho Glam” and the beautiful bridesmaids wore a mixture of champagne and blush dresses. When having a mix and match bridal party, it is important that the bouquets tie the look together. In addition to the large raspberry statement flowers, we added pops of gold toned garden roses and ranunculus in all shades of pink to reflect the colors of the ladies’ gowns.
Hannah is stunning, inside and out, and I wanted to create a bouquet that truly reflected her huge heart and always cheerful demeanor. March is prime flower season here in Texas, and we used a variety of foliage, ranunculus, and anemones grown locally in our garden as well as right down the road by our friends at Prickly Pair Farm. It doesn’t get any better than working with materials that are cut literally the same day as the wedding. To create a contrast, I accented the romantic peonies, garden roses, and ranunculus with items that have unique textures, like thistle and veronica. Draped with fuchsia fringe, this bouquet was the epitome of Boho Glam yet still classic and refined, like sweet Hannah. In my opinion, mixing romantic blooms with uncommon components are what makes a bouquet photograph well — turning a standard floral design into a work of art!
I wasn’t familiar with Texas bluebonnets until I came upon Brooke Jonsson’s, of Oh Studio Stella, pics from this adorable engagement shoot. And now holy moly, I am obsessed. These flowers are downright gorgeous and their color absolutely captivating, and not to mention, these two cuties make the whole scene even better. See why my day just got a whole lot better right here!

From Brooke Jonsson of Oh Stella Studio… Richard is a full-time jazz musician, playing upright bass in the best jazz groups around Austin. Karen is one of Austin’s best jazz vocalists, fronting her own band. Together, they are the ultimate power couple in the jazz community. Karen and Richard can be hired to play music for weddings, private functions, holiday parties, and everything in between. For more info- visit www.karentennison.com.
From the Bride-to-be… We met in college at The University of Northern Colorado. We both registered for the same class, which met once a week in the evenings. Since we lived in the same area of town, Richard would walk me home every week after class. I liked his glasses, his humor, and his taste in music (jazz). He liked that I was just as passionate about jazz as he was (among other things). For our first date, he took me to the local one-screen, vintage-inspired theater to see “Raising Arizona.” When he graduated, we moved back to Austin and have been playing music with each other every chance we get. I am currently on the hunt for a handmade dress to wear for our November wedding this year at the Barr Mansion in Austin, TX.

If you’re looking for a wedding that hits deep in the heart of Texas, you’re in the right spot! This Texas Hill Country wedding is seriously stunning. A good chunk of inspiration came from the famed Texas anthem (note: the constellation table runners) making every detail very classy and very Texas.

..Madison & James’s wedding was even more stylish than their engagement (since they both grew up as children of architects, that’s not surprising!) With a venue like Three Points Ranch in the Texas Hill Country we wanted it to feel very Texan but to be honest, we spend far more time in the heart of Downtown Dallas than out in the country so a full-on boots and rustic feel would have been disingenuous. Instead we used “The Stars at Night are Big and Bright, Deep in the Heart of Texas” as the underlying theme. I was betting on a clear night which would mean a deep, dark blue sky and giant stars. So the bridesmaids wore midnight blue and the groomsmen wore navy. We found an image of the night sky’s constellations and printed it as the runners for the tables. I explained our vision to Stems and together we picked flowers and succulents that had slight starry shapes and Billy Buttons were the pops of starlight in many of the bouquets and arrangements. The strung lights and homemade ‘chandeliers’ over the tables were an additional star motif in the night. Madison choose a skirt and bustier from BHLDN for their wedding under the Big Oak Tree at Three Points Ranch and wore a mint green mini skirt for the reception with colorful floral JCREW heels ! The couple also made touches like the anniversary wish bottles and a mix of cakes and pies and BBQ , a bonfire and Smores- a perfect way to celebrate their Texas marriage with family and friends!
