That ‘70s Glow! This Vintage-Inspired, Sunset Palette Will Make You Swoon

When we first laid eyes on this wedding’s color palette, it was love. Swirling, sunset colors of peach, amber, coral, mustard… we were done. But the palette was just the start of our love affair with this wedding, which was inspired by the bride’s favorite decade of style, the 1970s. With the help of Westcott Weddings, the ‘70s got a major glow-up with modern details that feel so fresh. From punchy blooms by Remi + Gold to chic lounge styling by Birch & Brass, every detail combines vintage sensibility with modern romance. And when the bride owns a paper goods & signage company—the aptly named Peach Paper + Design— you can expect the invitations to be some of the prettiest ever. Sophie Epton captured every last vintage detail to perfection, and you can see it all unfold in the full gallery!

From the photographer, Sophie Epton… What a day for Megan + Tyler! This was one of the most unique and beautiful weddings I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this year, and I’m so excited to be sharing it with Style Me Pretty! Since our bride, Megan, is in the wedding industry (she owns an incredible paper goods + signage company called Peach Paper + Design in Austin, TX) we knew she was going to plan an unbelievable wedding!

From the beginning, Megan knew that she wanted to pair a favorite decade of color and design with a throwback to the 1970s, but make it fresh and modern for today.

The wedding day was laced with gorgeous hues of mustards, yellows, peaches, pinks, greens, corals and amber that was such a fun pop of color and ode to the 1970s, including Megan’s mustard velvet linens from La Tavola, a serious favorite! Remi + Gold provided all the stunning, romantic florals that were a perfect balance to the decor while still keeping the look fresh and modern- and that floral tree for the ceremony?! To die for!

After a beautiful sun-drenched ceremony at the Greenhouse at Driftwood, guests got to enjoy the cocktail hour of the year with beautiful Birch & Brass leather and velvet lounges, an amazing food spread (including pretzels and beer cheese, an homage to the groom!) and they even had a 1970s style camper and lounge where a special choice of cocktails were mixed all night!

Guests dined and danced all night under a Sperry tent and the stars. And of course, with the bride owning her own paper goods company, she was able to provide so many bespoke pieces for the wedding- from the beautiful mustard and coral invitation suite, to the hand-pressed flowers used in all of her table numbers, to the fantastic illustrations of her own dogs (who the signature cocktails were named after!).

Megan’s touch on all of these pieces made for a wedding that was so uniquely her and was such a thrill to photograph. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I did capturing them!

Bringing Glamorous Pink Hues to a Texas Greenhouse

A glamorous greenhouse wedding… did you ever think it possible? Add in every shade of pink and the sweetest Bride and Groom and you get this Texas affair. Held The Greenhouse at Driftwood, it marries Louboutins with cacti and an elegant tented celebration crafted by Two Be Wed and all captured by Michelle Boyd. See the full affair right here.

From the Bride… My inspiration came from two words: organically romantic. To me, organically romantic meant effortless, beautiful, cozy, and intimate details. Once I figured out the theme of my wedding that was when all the design aspects fell into place. I first found my venue, The Greenhouse at Driftwood, through a little blurb on Style Me Pretty. It was the only venue my fiance’ and I visited and it just fit my vision perfectly! I also worked with an amazing wedding planner, Ashley Joseph from Two Be Wed, who happens to be my best friend’s sister. Both Ashley and I were on drill team together in high school and I enjoyed getting to share wedding planning with someone I have known for a long time. I have seen her work and knew she would be able to bring life into my vision! She helped me find some incredibly talented vendors and people to help create the most beautiful, perfect day!

The most important things for me when I was planning were beautiful photography, delicious food, and a fun band. We basically wanted our family and friends to have a great time! I was so excited to be able to find a photographer that fit my style aesthetics and who happened to be the sweetest person I have ever met! And now, I have the most beautiful pictures to remember our special day. I also enjoyed getting to go on food tastings. My husband was most involved in this aspect (haha) and we also included my in-laws which made for a fun day trip to Austin for tastings! Royal Fig Catering was our final choice and they above and beyond delivered on our day! To this day, our family and friends still rave over the food we had on our wedding day! Our band, The Royal Dukes Band, were incredible and it was so fun to see my closest loved ones dancing the night away!

This season of engagement is so fun and is such a sweet time of having your loved ones celebrate you and your soon-to-hubby’s relationship. So, don’t let all the stress of wedding planning and trying to create a Pinterest-worthy wedding get in the way of what matters most! When it all ends, you won’t remember the details of what went wrong or how you didn’t have that incredible center piece. You’ll remember the important things of marrying the love of your life and having your closest friends and family share in one pretty special day.

My favorite memory would definitely have to be when all the toasts were given. I was standing next to my husband, arms locked around each other, and looking out to see the faces of our loved ones surrounding us. We were under this beautiful tent with string lights and candles were lit all around, and it was beautifully cozy and intimate. People were engaged with the speeches; everyone was smiling, laughing, & crying, and we could truly feel the love in the room. I remember thinking how blessed we were to have these people in our lives and that they traveled far and wide to celebrate our marriage. It was truly a special moment and one that I will remember for the rest of my life!

We wanted our ceremony to be intimate and meaningful to both Jon & I. We had taken a pre-marital course through our church in Houston and most of the course was centered around Ephesians 5:22-31. We wanted to center our marriage and our ceremony around that passage as well. Jon & I also wrote our own vows. My older brother, who was in ministry in California, officiated our ceremony and it was so sweet that we got to share that moment with my brother!

This is Why We’re Obsessed With Greenhouse Weddings

Can we all agree that greenhouses are the coolest wedding venues we’ve seen in a long time? One look through this gallery by Feather & Twine and I have no doubt you’ll be on board. The Greenhouse at Driftwood was the beautiful backdrop for this Texas wedding and it only gets more gorgeous with every glimpse. See it all in our gallery right this way!


From the Bride… Growing up, I had always imagined my wedding day to be magical (probably because Disney was the main staple of my youth). So when it came time to plan the big day I wanted to honor that perspective. I wanted the day to feel timeless, romantic and whimsical. The overall feel I wanted for Andrew, our family and friends was to be a celebration of love and life! Having this in mind, when Andrew and I toured The Greenhouse at Driftwood, I knew it was the place. It’s lush, and unlike any place I had ever seen in the hill country. I drew most of my inspiration from the Greenhouse itself. My color palette reflected the antique pastels that much of the vegetation carried, and my florals (by Color Theory Collective) were unique and soft, like much of the wild flowers that scattered the grounds. My mom and sister helped me paint all of our signage weeks before the big day. A simple DIY project, that really made for extra bits of sweetness as we saw them on our wedding day. My “something borrowed, something blue, etc.” all came from my sweet groom. He had read about the tradition in a groom’s guide and asked to make those his project – which ended up being so meaningful and precious. The handkerchief = something new, blue sapphire heart-shaped earrings = something blue, the tin trinket box = something old, the porcelain brooch = his grandmother’s that she let us borrow, and the key = was “the key to his heart”.

My favorite moment of the day was locking eyes with Andrew. We went back and forth on the idea of a first look, and had opted to wait for the aisle. Which looking back I’m really glad we did. There was so much excitement and adrenaline running through me and a wave of calm washed over me when I saw him.

My favorite details were in our desserts. My first trip to his family’s home, he snuck me outside to carve our initials into their backyard tree. To remember that sweet moment I had Sweet Treats Bakery include iced cookies with the image. Also, by STB, and the talk of the party, was Andrew’s groom’s cake. It was a replica of his yeti ice-chest with a Red Fish and his guitar – probably his two favorite activities! (Andrew has grown up fishing his entire life – his bachelor trip was actually a weekend fishing trip down to their family’s favorite spot of off the Texas Coast). The guitar was spot on too! He was completely blown away!

The biggest piece of advice I’d like to give to future brides – which I didn’t find until months into planning – is when in doubt, keep it simple, and make the choices for you and your groom. There can be lots of opinions and expectations on how your day should be, but after all, the day is a celebration of you and your groom finding happiness and love. So fill your day with details and touches that you both will be filled with joy to see on your big day!

Modern + Whimsical Greenhouse Wedding in Austin

Sarah and Jonathan currently call Austin, Texas home and knew it’d be the perfect spot to gather their guests from across the country for an unforgettable celebration. Wanting something different from the typical rustic Texan wedding, they opted for a modern take on Southwestern style with Wild Sky Events planning by their side. The big day included a tented reception thanks to Sperry Tents + Whim Events, but we’re only scratching the surface. Scroll on for every pretty moment captured by our girl, Sophie Epton plus a must-see film from The McKellars below.

From the bride… The first time we met four years ago, we were crammed in the backseat of an SUV on the way to a summer camp director’s meeting. I remember being annoyed I had to sit in the middle, and Jonathan remembers thinking the girl sitting in the middle was pretty cute. A few hours and flirtations later, we parted ways. Jonathan typed up several emails to me and never sent them – he figured he would try his luck when we were working in Boston together that summer. We hit it off after being in Boston together for about ten minutes and have been together ever since. After that summer, we spent the next year together in New York City, sharing tiny apartments, countless dumpling dates and a serious case of wanderlust. After a trip to Austin and an acceptance to graduate school at UT, we packed their lives into several boxes, crammed them into Sarah’s trusty CRV and made the move cross country.

After surviving a three-week trip around the world together, getting Curtis Eggroll Green (our Goldendoodle) and living together for over a year, Jonathan decided it was time to pop the question. After telling both of our families over Thanksgiving and letting my sister try on the ring before I knew anything was going on, we hopped on a flight to Portugal and Spain to celebrate the holidays in December 2015. On top of a castle in the seaside town of Sintra, Jonathan proposed and I said yes (and proceeded to happy cry for an entire day).

When it came time to get down to planning, we were overwhelmed – our families live scattered all over the country and we were some of the first of our friends to get married, so we were flying blind. We finally decided where better to gather all of our loved ones than the city where we call home now? Once we decided to get married in Austin, the next steps were hiring a wedding planner and photographer. Kate from Wild Sky Events was truly incredible – she has such a unique vision and always had a plan B, C and Z ready if plan A couldn’t work. The moment I met Sophie Epton and saw her work, I knew no one else could capture our day. She and her husband Jordan are the most genuinely kind and wonderful people, and working with them was a complete blast, which was echoed by our huge families that Sophie and Jordan expertly wrangled at the wedding.

We searched for months for a venue that would work with my wish list – I didn’t want a hotel wedding and didn’t want anything too rustic, which is a tall order in Texas. Luckily, as soon as we saw The Greenhouse at Driftwood I knew it was just right. The towering cacti, the bluebonnets blooming and the grand glass greenhouses were the perfect blend of modern and southwestern charm I was looking for.

All of our vendors did a stunning job – Gypsy Florals brought me to tears when I first saw by the bouquet and the chuppah was absolutely breathtaking. The nailed my whimsical and modern aesthetic perfectly. Contigo catering made hands down the best custom cocktails, and the food was spot on – so many of our guests have asked us for the recipes to the “The Curtis,” our signature vodka cocktail! The videography by The McKellars is such a special keepsake that I will cherish forever. I could not have been more in love with our custom acrylic seating chart by The Inviting Pear, and the Sperry tent by Whim with the twinkling lights was the stuff of my wedding dreams.

There were so many incredible moments I wish I could relive – my sister zipping me up in my dress and helping me put on our late mom’s jewelry, Jonathan and I reading our original vows to each other in front of everyone we love, my dad’s side-splitting speech, dancing like crazy to 90s throwbacks…the list is endless. We couldn’t be more grateful to our parents for giving us the best weekend of our lives and to our family and friends for their love and support, on our wedding day and every other day.

Al Fresco

From the Bride… We visited countless venues in the Austin Hill Country and the Greenhouse was our last stop, because we chose to look no further. Saving the best for last definitely fit here! We were absolutely stunned by the property, the people and the history of the home that was shared with us. The Greenhouse is magical and we felt honored to share our vows in a place where time seemed to slow down.

During the planning process, I was super intentional with the team I built. It was less about people’s previous experience, but more about the connection I felt with them. I am so incredibly grateful to have collaborated with such amazing people who are passionate about the work they do. I felt inspired by each and every vendor while making decisions and I attribute the beauty of the wedding to their creativity!

The natural color palette and overall aesthetic was inspired by the organic beauty of the venue. I wanted my choices in floral, linens and table arrangements to complement the established greenery that was authentic to the Greenhouse with mixtures of blush, ivory, gray and sage. Each bouquet and table arrangement was handpicked by Clementine’s Christin Armstrong, with a mixture of fragile blooms and strong succulent varieties. My bridesmaids’ blush printed and solid dresses were as unique and romantic as the bouquets they picked to carry. The months of decision making contributed to a seamless and intimate day.

The day of is a whirlwind of beautiful moments delicately strung together that are so vivid in my mind. I remember standing under the tent while the catering company set up with my parents and a couple of my best gals. One dear friend presented me with a small box from Tyler. I wore the beautiful earrings he gifted me down the aisle, but the note he wrote me was the icing on the carrot cake!

We felt so much love for each other on our day and this love continues to grow; being married is fun! We hope your process is filled with as many special moments as our experience was during this amazing time!

From Uptown Events… The Greenhouse at Driftwood is a stunning home-turned-venue with two indoor greenhouses connected to the house itself. It was a dream of mine to work there, and I was over the moon when Jordan and Tyler chose me to coordinate their special day at the extraordinary venue.

Jordan and Tyler were kind, organized and excited about their big day which made them a joy to work with. As the day got closer, I spent more time talking with Jordan and really felt connected to her vision for their wedding day. Earth tones, heavy greenery, and modern lines made up their design, matching up perfectly with the Greenhouse’s relaxed, yet elegant, vibe. Tyler and Jordan were married on the back deck of the house under a large tree and surrounded by their closest friends and family. Their cocktail hour took place on a lush lawn allowing guests to walk around the property and through the greenhouses. The couple and their loved ones danced the night away under a tent filled with sparkling lights and departed for their honeymoon to Costa Rica right after! This wedding was an absolute delight to coordinate, all because of Tyler and Jordan.

Emerald + Gold Hill Country Summer Wedding

I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen such thoughtful, detailed, love-filled reflections of family than at this Texas bash planned by Vintage&Lace Austin. From the Bride’s dances with all six of her brothers to the collection of family wedding gowns, this summer celebration at Pecan Grove at Salt Lick BBQ, captured by Kate Anfinson and The Bird & The Bear, is what weddings are all about – more in the VAULT!

[iframe 600 338]

From the Bride… As an owner of a wedding planning company I know what goes into a wedding. More importantly, I know great vendors that I completely trust! These vendors absolutely made my wedding day perfect with minimal stress. We selected Pecan Grove for our wedding venue. Not only do I work there often and enjoy the layout and staff, but the ceremony space under the trees is incredibly beautiful in its simplicity. We did have to work around wedding dates I already had scheduled to work for the year and September 12, 2015 ended up being the perfect date for us! The weather in Texas in the late summer can be very unpredictable, usually meaning very hot, but the weather on that Saturday was gorgeous! We had shade cover from the mature pecan trees and the sunlight peaking through the branches for beautiful lighting.

I see so many different styles and themes for weddings since I am in the industry, which actually made designing my own wedding very difficult! I thought about what Will and I really wanted – a fun party to celebrate our love with family and friends. Taking that as the main priority, I also knew I wanted a beautiful setting that fit our style. Will and I love being outside, so I wanted to make use of the outside space for the ceremony and bring the natural greens inside the pavilion for the reception with hints of soft colors in the blooms. I passed off most of the design details for floral to my florist and great friend, Gretchen with Petals, Ink. I completely trusted her judgement and she wowed me with her finished product! We took inspiration from my dress for the linen with rented dupioni linen for the round tables and then lace runners for the farm tables. I love gold, so we did all the accents with gold – vases, table numbers, signs, candle holders. We incorporated some beehive elements to the welcome area since Will and I both enjoy honey whiskey; in addition, “honey” is our primary term of endearment for each other. I punched out the escort cards in a hexagonal shape, rented a great beehive shelf from Bee Lavish, and then decorated it with elements and photos that represent the relationship between Will and I.

The memorial table was very special to us. I lost my mom as a young girl and Will lost his dad recently. I have also lost all my grandparents. We wanted to recognize those that couldn’t physically be there with us, but were there in our hearts. My dad’s sister actually mentioned she still had her mom’s (my grandmother’s) wedding dress if I wanted to use a piece of lace to pin on my dress. That made me come up with a unique idea to display the dress, my other grandmother’s dress, and my mom’s wedding dress by the table along with the photos. These women are such an important part of who I am and having their wedding dresses at my wedding warmed my heart.

I’m also one of seven children, and the only girl. So I wanted to incorporate my brothers who mean the world to me in our wedding day. I came up with the idea to do the father/daughter dance, but after roughly 30 seconds the song switched. I then danced with each brother from oldest to youngest to different songs I selected for each of them for various reasons for roughly 30 seconds each to make up what would usually be the length of one song. It turned out to be such a fun element on the wedding day!

Our wedding was filled with love, laughter, some sentimental tears, and an amazing group of people. We definitely had the fun party we set out to have along with a very special and sentimental ceremony. I can’t thank our loved ones and vendors enough for making it a day to always remember!
