From Lovely Leaves... Canyonwood Ridge is a new Hill Country venue situated atop a ridge wrapped in oak trees with scenic hill country views. We were thrilled to design florals for one of the first weddings there. The venue was designed specifically for weddings and couldn't be more dreamy. It boasts a gorgeous chapel perfect for indoor ceremonies and the floor to ceiling windows offering romantic sunlight that would steal any bride's heart. The space is spectacular for film images like these beauties from Emilie Anne Photography. The dramatic views and Hill Country elegance are awe-inspiring attributes yet the venue maintains a balance of simplicity to set the tone for a romantic Hill Country wedding.

The florals were a lovely mix of burgundy dahlias, deep red peonies, peach Juliet garden roses and lush eucalyptus spread throughout the space. The bouquets were my favorite. She selected a beautiful slightly over-sized design overflowing with silver dollar. Adrianna's stunning lace Stella York gown was absolutely enchanting. She and Preston were one of the sweetest couple's we had worked with all year and we could not have been more excited for them.

From the Bride... We wanted our wedding to be simple but romantic to showcase the love and commitment we were vowing to make that day but still represent who we were as a couple. Our wedding inspiration came from our relationship, starting with the date we got married on. Eight years ago on October 21st was the day Preston and I met in high school. We have been together ever since so what better day to start the next chapter of our lives together. We envisioned the wedding to be located in the hill country of Dripping Springs. We came across our venue Canyonwood Ridge before it was even built and we both fell and love with the plans they had for the place. The custom made wood trusses and unique light fixtures were just a couple things we loved about the venue. However it was the scenic view and all the beautiful windows surrounding the venue that won us over. I knew I wanted neutral colors to cater to the simplicity I was looking for. With Preston’s favorite color being burgundy and my obsession with gold, they just happened to be the perfect pops of color for our fall date. It was the little details of our wedding that made it perfect to us. From tying a fisherman’s knot in our unity ceremony (Preston loves to fish), to the perfect romantic touch of lace on my Grandmothers veil that matched with my dress beautifully. Preston and I have always had an interest in cars so it was never a question that my grandpas gorgeous classic Chevy Belair would be a part of our special day.
