Modern Texas Clubhouse Wedding

When you work in the “industry” … wedding industry that is, your own special day can be nothing short of amazing. Luckily, for this lovely bride, she had a so much help from friends, that every detail of this modern Texas wedding was picture perfect. With the help of Statue of Design & snaps from Rachael Hall Photography, you won’t want to miss a moment from this special day here!


From Rachael Hall PhotographyReba and Ryan are a remarkable couple. I knew Reba as a fellow wedding industry colleague; she is an amazing event planner with such an eye for design. This wedding was a family affair, in that several of us: Sweet August Events, Rachael Hall Photography and 2tarts Bakery, all good friends, worked together to create an unforgettable wedding for one of our own.

I couldn’t have been more excited to bring Reba and Ryan’s vision of their wedding day to life. They met in the Texas State Marching Band and carried the theme of music and their mutual love of Disney throughout their very stylish, modern wedding. Reba’s father passed away very unexpectedly a few years ago, and she is extremely close to her mother, Amy. It was important to Reba for me to reflect that in photographs.

The day was absolutely perfect with a bright blue Texas sky, and Reba looked radiant in her gown. Ryan’s uncle is a Catholic priest and had the special honor of performing their wedding mass. Reba’s friend and boss, Katherine Lopez, who owns Sweet August Events, did a phenomenal job of transforming The Landmark Loft Clubhouse into a vision of modern design. From laser-cut mirrors which listed the seating chart, to Ghost Chairs and signs on each table containing the title of a Disney love song and the amazing, lush florals and succulents provided by Statue of Design, Reba and Ryan’s wedding was breath-taking. 2tarts Bakery did their gold standard work by providing a crisp, modern palette of desserts in grey and white with bold accents of emerald.

From the beautiful Bride… From the day Ryan asked me to marry him I knew I wanted our day to be incredible and I needed to find the most incredible people to make it happen. Our vendors brought our vision to life, Katherine Lopez with Sweet August Events, my boss, made sure that every detail was perfect and exactly what I asked for. Rachael with Rachael Hall Photography captured the true essence of the magical day. With such a wonderful group of vendors who I work with on a daily basis I knew the day would be perfect, and it was.

I had always dreamed of getting married at Walt Disney World but our theme of Modern Romance seemed to fit our relationship perfectly and so course we had to throw in small touches of Disney wherever we could. My absolute favorite part of the day was standing in our reception space with my husband and looking around at beautiful décor that we designed and imagined together. At that moment surrounded by our family and closest friends we felt truly at home and overwhelmed with happiness.

Bridal Shoot at Historic Lindheimer House from Heather Moore Photography

I’m not exactly sure what is on your Thursday agenda, lovelies, but I can guarantee you one thing.  This mesmerizing bridal shoot from the talented lens of Heather Moore?  It will fill up one huge portion of your day.  Because this, my friends, is the kind of session that takes a stunning setting (the historic Lindheimer home) and pairs it with lush + vibrant florals from Blumen-Meisters, fab paper goods from Lucky Penny Paperie and yummy goodness from 2tarts Bakery… and wraps it all up in a full gallery that will take your breath.  Join me there for all of the pretty.


From Heather MooreOur lovely model was Brandi Seguin and our location was the historic Lindheimer home in New Braunfels, Texas. This little saltbox home, which is currently a Texas landmark and museum, was built by German settlers. I decided to pattern our Bridal shoot after the romantic German influence and felt like shooting film would be the perfect choice to help us achieve this feel. Lots of charm in those little Lindheimer gardens — perfect to match our gorgeous ranunculus bouquet crafted by Sheri of Blumen-Meisters! The soft, romantic lace gown was provided by Beatitude Bridal in Boerne, Texas and Brandi’s hair was styled by Kylie Hill.

Backyard New Braunfels Wedding by Mustard Seed Photography

Backyard wedding-loving SMPers (that just might be all of us) this pretty little fête is going to send your soul into a tizzy of excitement. Because it is just everything a backyard party should be – and so much more. It’s twinkling lights, casual elegance and ruffly cakes all captured like only Mustard Seed Photography can – and it’s all waiting for you right here.

From Mustard Seed PhotographyWe recently traveled to New Braunfels to photograph this lovely, nature-themed backyard wedding, and we knew from the moment we arrived that we were in love! Not only are the bride and groom super-sweet, but they are also super-creative and put together the best soirée for their guests to enjoy. :)

From the Bride… I absolutely love old vintage knick knacks — bottles, cameras, mason jars, tea cups, books, plates, vases, milk glass, etc. I also adore birds of any kind and color. I knew I didn’t want the traditional symmetrical centerpieces/decor that you typically see  on wedding tables, so gathering things that I love and using them seemed like a nice idea. My mother and I started going to the flea market every weekend! We would haggle with vendors for hours attempting to get everything we needed and not spend a fortune. The main items we used for filler were vintage bottles, milk glass, mason jars and books. We would also buy “centerpiece” items such as vintage cameras, bird cages and even an old microscope. It took us about seven trips to the flea market and a full day of running around town to thrift stores to gather all the beautiful pieces we needed.

The day of the wedding, we filled the bottles and vases with candles, ranunculus, craspedia and assorted wildflowers. They looked like something from Alice in Wonderland’s tea party/magical vintage garden, which I couldn’t have been happier with. I had so much fun with my mother all those weekends we hung out, looking for decor — I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

From the bride… When Seth dropped to his knee under a rainbow-filled sky on Primrose Hill in London after a long, rain-drenched walk in the park, I went into a confused state of shock. I even asked him if he was serious and looked around a bit … which still gets me in trouble. I had known from our very first date that I wanted to be his wife, but as Seth is extremely practical and I am not, I knew that it would take him a bit more time to come to the same conclusion. My plan was to simply hang tight until he realized that he just had to pop the question. Haha! The funny thing is, when he did actually drop to his knee, I could not believe it. He is my hero and my love, and my calm and my heart, and I could not believe that God could possibly bless me so very much. It was awesome.  

After it finally started to sink in, though, I had another fantastic realization. Being from the wedding industry, it hit me that I would now get to plan my own wedding and make all of the little details that I love to design and create! So the planning started. Seth and I are very low-key and wanted to have a very simple but elegant “rustic” wedding with homemade touches. We quickly fell in love with the beautiful New Braunfels venue, Boulder Springs, and set to design a wedding that would compliment its outdoorsy, rustic atmosphere. I have loved the beautiful and creative work of Austin photographer Sarah Q for quite some time, so we quickly brought her on board. Next, we were so fortunate to find the awesome Michelle Hodges from Sprout in Fredericksburg. Her flowers and design sense are impeccable, and it was such a pleasure working with her. For dessert, we wanted a fun dessert bar, but did not want to spend the budgeted money on professionally-baked treats, so we opted for smaller bride and groom cakes and had friends and family make the most precious treats to add flavors and dimension! We then hired San Antonio based catering company Black Tie Affairs, who created a fantastic traditional BBQ dinner for our guests. We wanted to make our own invitations, but were clearly not gifted in the art of calligraphy, so we brought on designer and calligrapher Jennifer Gilllespie from Calligraphy by Jennifer.

After the bigger pieces of the puzzle were solidified, it was time to get crafty. Somewhere along the way, I fell in love with yarn and started wrapping anything  I could get my hands on — framed boards, large letters and recycled CD covers for guests. We then added layers of pillows to various benches and spaces to add a touch of softness. Finally, we realized that we were missing one thing: something blue. Earlier in the year, my grandfather had passed away, and we were trying to think of the right way to make him a special part of the day. I had my grandmother sew my garter from one of his blue shirts and was able to wear it down the aisle. Our biggest hope for the day was to recognize the greatest source of love in our life and to share that with everyone we love. God is the core of our relationship, and we had the gifted Mark Swayze lead us in worship during our ceremony to honor God and to thank everyone who helped to shape us into the people we are today. When all was said and done, we couldn’t have asked for a more blessed day, spent with amazing friends and family. We are so thankful for the incredible team of professionals and support of each and every person who lent us their time, talent and heart. We love you very much!!
