Austin Wedding by BZ Events
October 3, 2011

Oh Austin, Texas, home to the coolest of cool weddings, you never ever disappoint us here in SMP land and we just can't seem to get enough of you and your fabulously chic weddings. Take this pretty, nature inspired wedding for example. We're loving all the earth tone details from the pretty linen napkins topped with herbs to the gorgeous, swirly tablecloths to the simple and pared down aisle. Lucky for us Stacey E. Photography was there to capture all these pretty details designed and planned to perfection by BZ Events and the beyond gorgeous florals by Petal Pushers. Click here for even more!

From the bride: Sharing our cool little pocket of Texas with friends and family was what we loved most about our wedding day. Our wedding day vision ... Looking back, my favorite comment from guests who attended our wedding was that it wasn't necessarily a "hill country" wedding, or a "rustic/vintage/modern/etc" wedding - but it was just a "Chris and Katherine" wedding -- which is exactly what we were going for. We tried to add a personal touch to every single element. In terms of the overall design scheme , we knew the second we walked into Vista West Ranch that it was perfect for the  relaxed, rustic charm we were going for. Chris actually suggested our signature drink early in the planning process (Roseberry Fizz from Austin's fun Highball bar) and it ended up being the inspiration for much of the wedding - our colors were mossy/herb greens, ivories, and touches of navy, with fresh herbs everywhere - on the tables, in the flowers, and a lavender toss to end the night!

Our vendor team rocked + without a doubt, Becky at BZ events steals the show - she was amazing every step of the way. She helped us design our big day + helped us put together a team of rock star Austin wedding vendors, including Primizie + Petal Pushers who were both incredible.

Our favorite details of the day -- I was 100% happy and in love with every single detail. Fresh herb sprigs, topo chico glasses with candles, twinkling chandeliers hanging from the trees, the mason jars filled with flowers at the end of the ceremony aisles, wooden signs to direct the guests, agua fresca served in mason jars, striped straws, bunting hanging from the balcony, the handmade green desk that served as a welcome table, the Rifle Paper Co. recipe box as a guest book, programs hanging from the trees on clothesline, C+K mugs with herbs spilling out, canvas stamped bags with peanuts, edible ice cream sandwich wrappers, surprise cocktail napkins for Chris, a ceremony that made us laugh out loud multiple times, watching our friends and family enjoy the photo booth and mingle around an adorable ice cream truck, the sun setting as we said our vows, a constant hill country breeze, and everyone who's important to us dancing the night away!
