A Fresh Take on An Industrial Wedding With Serious Pops of Color

I’m never surprised when a graphic designer becomes a bride and her wedding is AMAZING. There’s something about a designer’s knack for aesthetics that always translates to pretty and this day is certainly no exception. It’s a fresh take on the industrial chic style with unexpected moments like ghost chairs for the win. Go see the rehearsal dinner in the gallery, along with every capture by Michelle Boyd.

From Michelle Boyd PhotographyTaylor and Adam were married on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at the historic Hotel Emma in San Antonio. (The hotel building was originally The Pearl Brewery’s Brewhouse, which was built in 1894.) Taylor and Adam have special ties to the hotel because both Adam and the bride’s father contributed to its construction.

For the overall design of the space, we drew inspiration directly from the hotel, which combines old world elegance, and a mix of industrial and modern touches. We brought in luxe, patterned linens from La Tavola and ghost chairs for dining. Sprout designed lush florals (seriously, those bouquets!) which added pops of soft, pretty color throughout the space.

The bride is an incredibly talented graphic designer, and she designed all of the paper goods for the day, which included an illustration of the landmark hotel that they love. (Not to mention letterpress for days, gold edge painting, wax seals, and Frou Frou ribbon to bundle each suite together!) Their day-of paper goods also featured modern, acrylic touches.

The hotel itself has a huge culinary emphasis. One of our favorite details from the evening is the gorgeous marble-clad, fully functioning display kitchen, which we flipped three times to use throughout the night: First for sign-in, then for cocktail hour (the chef prepped and served appetizers from this space!), and finally for an incredible dessert display, complete with three cakes and hundreds of assorted pastries.

Following dinner, toasts, and desserts, The Night Owls opened the dance floor and kept everyone dancing (and singing!) until Taylor and Adam’s sparkler departure. After a quick wardrobe change, they joined the after-party where Matthew Rubio with the Flashdance played to a packed room until the early morning.

Working with Taylor and Adam and their families was a dream. They are kind, talented, and so very in love. So thankful for the incredible team behind this day that pulled together to achieve every thoughtful, beautifully executed detail for this sweet couple.

A Day With Earthy Floral Greenery Done So Right

It’s hard to believe that Lauren & Jon planned their celebration from afar. Knowing that fact alone we’re in awe, but add in a romantic palette, earthy greenery, and one majorly elegant gown and our jaws drop. Oh and the stationery goods were designed by the Bride – ah-mazing, right?! Loft Photography and Brad & Monica Wedding Films filmed every second to share and we’ve got it in The Vault!

From Loft Photography… We swoon over weddings with thoughtful details strewn throughout the day, and Lauren & Jon’s day had just that. A romantic color palette, earthy greenery and florals, gorgeous stationery and elegant gowns are just a few of the elements we loved about this wedding. And Hotel Havana was the ideal backdrop for this fun-loving couple as they prepared for their wedding festivities. Lauren, being the talented graphic designer that she is, created all of the stunning paper goods herself. And we love the minimal & ethereal table centerpieces at the reception, which perfectly complimented the delicious family style catering from Royal Fig. We must admit, we’re a little envious of Lauren & Jon’s dance moves, they tore up the dance floor thanks to a little help from London Calling! These two planned their wedding day from afar, and we think they nailed it!

From Mint Photography… Lauren and Sam’s beautiful event took place at Eilan Resort and Spa. The couple and wedding planner’s inspiration came from the grounds of the property. Eilan is a new luxury destination with a grand and glamorous atmosphere, which Lauren and Sam found very appealing. The bride wanted to play off the colors on the property. Neutral tones and light pink hues were found throughout the wedding decor and details, while using the bold architecture of Eilan as a complement to the upscale vibe the couple wanted to achieve. The ceremony took place on a balcony overlooking the beautiful villas and unique architecture on the property. A custom program sign was designed in calligraphy for guests to view as they entered the event. During cocktail hour guests mingled outdoors while listening to a live saxophonist and enjoying cocktails. Guests were also given organic honey in jars as a keepsake. The day was followed by an evening of dancing in a romantically lit ballroom with friends and family. Their day was romantic, luxurious with a very chic look.
