This Candlelit Reception Will Stop You Dead in Your Tracks

Modern design lovers, you are in for a treat. This downtown Austin wedding comes baring gifts of edison bulb installation type proportions and it’s so, so good. Designed by Westcott Weddings and Clementine Botanical Art, see how Texas is bringing modern glamour to 800 Congress. See it all unfold, including a show-stopping Oscar de la Renta number, through stunning images by The Nichols.

This city wedding was perfectly classic and modern, with a show stopping Oscar De La Renta dress. Annie and Andrew were married in style in a beautiful ceremony at historic St. Mary’s Cathedral in downtown Austin. After they said their “I do’s”, their guests were welcomed into a romantic, candlelit reception, with draping greenery, while classic black and white movies ala Audrey Hepburn played on the back wall. While the bridesmaids bouquets incorporated jewel-toned pops of colors, they kept the color palette clean and classic for the reception decor with whites and lots of green, which brought the industrial space with exposed brick to life and created such a cozy atmosphere. After Annie and Andrew’s grand entrance, their guests dined and toasted at long family-style tables, then danced the night away in the magical setting. This downtown wedding struck the perfect balance of classic, modern, and romantic. Such a joy to document!
