Whimsical

From Statue of DesignInspiration for our photo shoot at the San Antonio Zoo came from a combination of various elements. We had been itching to do a styled shoot at the zoo, but wanted to make sure that our details were cohesive but not overpowering the star attractions at the venue…the animals. With the San Antonio Zoo’s upcoming centennial anniversary, we thought the time was perfect to gather together some of our colleagues and work on a vintage zoo inspired shoot. We worked with Bella Bridesmaids in selecting a muted pastel color palette as a throwback to the vintage “carnival” era. The bridal party featured various floral elements complementing the soft color palettes, from pink to yellow’s and even soft blues. We worked with the team at Spice of Life catering in developing a whimsical themed menu highlighting the catering company’s bold flavors. Our colleagues at Event Ignition highlighted the venue’s unique space with their superior lighting skills, while Luxe Event Décor provided stunning rentals from chameleon chairs to their raj tents. And lastly we worked with Girl General on all of our paper products from invitations to menu, tying in zoo elements as well as paying homage to the vintage theme.

The bride and groom who couldn’t stop smiling if they tried, and in this case, an amazing photographer named Taylor Lord there to document it all. It’s a day built on laid back charm – with two miniature ponies thrown into for good measure – and the party goes on the gallery right here.

From Lindsey BrunkWith infectious smiles and a love that touched everyone involved, Heidi & John’s wedding was joyful in every sense of the word. They celebrated with friends and family at The Settlement, a sprawling new venue in San Antonio. Heidi & John wanted glamour and romance, but with laid back charm. Heidi’s three sisters served as her maids of honor while John’s dad was his best man.

After an emotional ceremony, the party kicked off with prickly pear margaritas and two very special guests, white miniature ponies to celebrate the bride’s love of horses.

One of the many personal details of their Big Day was their sweetheart table for the reception. Heidi’s dad Dave tracked down the very table they sat at on their first date in Austin at a little Italian cafe and surprised the couple with it as an engagement present. It now serves as their kitchen table in their new home.

Other details of their big day included gold hand painted succulents as favors, ceremony music by John’s band, and the invitation suite custom made by a family friend to include a watercolor of the ceremony tree by the bride.

Elegant Wedding at Southwest School of Art

If I could sprinkle bits of gold on everything, I would do just that. It’s my belief that gold accents make everything better. But combined with black, and we’ve reached a whole new level. This elegant affair at the Southwest School Art is pure style, and has me reconsidering my own wedding color palette. Christine Sargologos snapped every chic detail, all available for your Pinterest pleasure right this way.

From Christine Sargologos Photography… Callyn & Eric are so easy going and relaxed, with an obvious and enormous love for each other. It meant the entire day was full of sweet little moments and tons of laughter. Both ceremony and reception were at the Southwest School of Art, a former convent with plenty of San Antonio heritage. With that backdrop they added a classic ivory, gold and black palette, along with playful fiesta-themed touches as homage to the city; the perfect balance of elegance and party. Guests loved the the mariachi band and table numbers, and the sombreros and paper floral crowns that were given as party favors. Dinner was served under the vaulted ceilings of the former chapel. The French Connection beautifully transformed the space so guests dined at vintage church pews in candlelight. Of course, nothing is more memorable than the dance party that followed. I think it’s safe to say everyone made it to the floor for at least a song or two. There’s nothing better than a celebration that blends sweetness, romance and a little silliness!
