Texas Wedding with Romantic Vintage Charm by Blue Lotus
December 8, 2010

I will probably never get enough of these dreamy, romantic weddings with their soft, pastel palettes and sweet, vintage-inspired details.  This Texas celebration designed by Blue Lotus and photographed by Sarah Kate may rank up there at the top of that list.  They had me swooning at the giant tillandsia in a bell jar all the way to the mossy ampersand!  Click here for more steal-worthy ideas in the full gallery!

Kallie and Dustin were married in an outdoor ceremony alongside the rustic lake house style venue, named Winfrey Point.  Guests gathered under the trees to watch the union take place before their eyes.  Electric lanterns, fastened by rope to the branches, were suspended above the bride and groom’s head.  And, just beyond the trees was a picturesque lake view of White Rock Lake.

After the ceremony, guests made their way inside Winfrey Point.  As they strolled towards the reception, there was a quick stop to be made in the sunroom.  This is where they were to find their table number among escort cards strung by twine along the wall.  Once inside the main room, you were transported into another era.   The invitations, menu cards, and floral print teacups with planted succulents that held the table numbers were reminiscent of The Great Gatsby.  The room’s décor was eclectic vintage and artistically distinctive throughout.

Requested by the groom, each table consisted of birch wood stumps mixed with the floral design.  Burlap linens topped the round guest tables placed along the edges of the room.  In the middle of the reception were three oversized rustic wood tables, with delicate lace runners and a mixture of floral and décor that filled the table.  Gold metal chandeliers hung low from the beams in the reception, which highlighted other gold accents in the room.  This includes the gold details in the chivari chairs and the hand stamped brown bags for the candy table.

The cake table was lined with a thin mossy layer.  Among the moss were various pies and candy dishes filled with the bride and grooms’ favorite sweet treats.  The cake rested on top of a thick birch stump.  The venue’s fireplace was filled with driftwood and candlelight that added to the dreamy feel of the night.  As the jazz band played, it gave a classic touch to the ambience of the crowd.  The evening concluded with a lively final dance after which the bride and groom exited through a canopy of sparklers.
