A Modern Take on Texas Charm

Because their wedding was the first time many friends of the Bride and Groom would be traveling to Texas, it was important they find a venue that not only suited their personal styles, but also showcased Texas charm. When the couple visited Prospect House – a raw, gallery-like space set amidst the vibrant countryside – they knew they had found the venue for their modern, Austin nuptials. Scroll on to see the final look, captured beautifully by Jenny DeMarco Photography and Brad & Monica Wedding Films.

From the Bride… Kent and I both spent many years living in New York and San Francisco, and most of our friends had never been to Texas. We wanted to choose a destination that would highlight Texas’s charm for our out-of-town friends. Prospect House was the first venue I researched after we decided to have the wedding in Austin, and we fell in love with it immediately.

Prospect House is sleek and modern but set in the beautiful Texas countryside, so I wanted to incorporate floral and greenery elements along with my favorite color (purple) to create a romantic vibe for the night. The clean design of Prospect House was a perfect canvas for us to add little touches throughout the venue, such as calligraphy and stationery designed by Michaela McBride. We created a relaxing lounge and a warm reception with floral details and candles so our friends and family could enjoy the night. Other details include the dessert bar, which consisted of some of our favorite desserts (pistachio macarons and tiramisu bites), and our favors were chocolate chip cookies fromTiff’s Treats, one of Kent’s favorite late night snacks in college. 

Our favorite moments throughout the wedding were the heartfelt speeches from our officiant, friends, and family. My sister, Christine, even read a letter that I wrote her 10+ years ago that she had held on to, which brought me immediately to tears.
