From The Wildflowers…With a venue like Bass Performance Hall, any wedding becomes magical. Fort Worth’s opera house-style concert hall is a historic city gem, adorned with angels, intricate domes and windows, and gold accents. To offset the extravagance of Bass Hall, we chose simple but sumptuous styles. The bride’s off-the-shoulder gown had just enough structure to match the strong architecture around her, while still adding a feminine fluidity. Her Old Hollywood hair, shaped into a low sculptural chignon, was a daring yet classic choice. Gorgeous ribbon from FrouFrou Chic and a vintage ring from Trumpet and Horn were perfect touches to complement the antique feel of the venue. And as a final elegant detail, the bride’s hair was adorned with a veil, then a green and cream floral hairpiece.
The light, airy, and impressive interior of the hall was our inspiration for the bright, open blossoms in bouquets and table arrangements created by Bows and Arrows. Chairs and linens in a stark white echoed the stately venue and let the flowers take center stage. Cascading greens crossed tables, and sweet pink florals were a playful and organic contrast to the otherwise proper place settings. For even more visual interest, we chose both taper and pillar candles, as well as minimalist table numbers by Alli K Design that featured whisper-thin floral illustration. Kayla Barker captured all of this in stunning photos that harnessed the sunlight beaming through Bass Hall’s windows.

I’ve traveled through my fair share of Europe, but there’s not a single place that’s captured my heart like Austria. It’s a country that feels a bit like a fairytale, so it’s no surprise Katie and Markus chose it as the backdrop for their wedding day. They brought along Tracy Enoch to document their exchange of vows at a 13th century castle that every hopeless romantic will adore.

From Tracy Enoch…Deciding to wed in Markus’s home country of Austria, Katie and Markus began their week-long wedding celebration with a culinary tour for friends and family.
The tour began at the home of Markus’s parents, with notable stops including the Zotter Chocolate Factory, Vulcano Cured Meats, the Thaller Winery, and ending at Buschenshank Posch with a casual dinner. The festivities began in earnest the following evening, when wedding guests arrived to the welcome party at Moarpeter Schielleiten wearing traditional lederhosen and dirndl and were treated to authentic Austrian cuisine while being entertained by a local 4 piece accordion and horn band.
The weekend concluded with a beautiful ceremony and 4-course dinner and dancing reception at the stunning Gartenschloss Herberstein; a 13th-century castle tucked in the Austrian hillside. As parting gifts, guests left with miniature bottled Schnapps, courtesy of the Schloffer Distillery, owned by family members of the groom.

From The Bride…We wanted a very small, intimate wedding with our closest family and friends. We planned the entire wedding ourselves and started just three months prior to our big day. With so little planning time, we decided to pick a few priorities and trust that everything else would come together. For us those priorities were a beautiful venue, pretty florals, and our amazing photographer- Sawyer Baird.
Our vision for the day centered around a romantic/natural feel and small, beautiful details. It was important to us that the day feel authentically us, so we incorporated personalized details throughout the day. For example, plants are very special to us so we made succulent favors for all of our guests. Also, we met in Atlanta and JCT Kitchen was a restaurant that we frequented prior to choosing it as our venue. We knew their amazing food would be something that our guests would enjoy.
We had also heard from so many couples that the day would go by so fast. Our goal really was to enjoy the day and savor one of the most special days of our journey together. As such, we spent the morning of the wedding getting ready together in our home- just the two of us. This ended up being one of the best parts of our day. Everything truly turned out amazing and we wouldn’t change a thing!
