2020 has been a year of firsts. Our first production season without photo shoots due to COVID-19. Our first issue including eight information-packed editorials. We’ve learned so much over the last several months and the main thing we’ve found to be true above all else is that Love Prevails. We’ve watched the world change and the wedding industry rise to the occasion to help couples during a difficult season and further embrace diversity and inclusion, knowing that ALL LOVE is worthy. As we scoured through so many insanley gorgeous weddings and styled shoots, we couldn’t stop going back to Paige and Alexandra. Their stunning nuptials and evident love for one another won us over. Introducing the Fall/Winter 2020 cover, captured by the incredibly talented Kelsey and Talon Sjostrom of Feather & Twine!
With an inbox full of submissions, this stylish couple immediately caught our eye during the selection process. Bride Alex wore the incredibly popular Sirena Watters gown from Unbridaled featuring embroidered lace flowers layered over blush tulle with a plunging strapless neckline, while her counterpart, Paige, wowed us all in a dark green tuxedo with a floral-embellished lapel and vest paired with a classic ivory herringbone patterned shirt finished with David Yurman cufflinks, a black satin tie and Giranrd-Perregauz watch. Paige wore an updo with multiple braids along the sides, showing her undercut and natural makeup, and Alex chose a romantic and whimsical, slightly tousled updo paired with neutral makeup and bold lashes. Alex’s feminine bridal style was completed with pear-shaped ruby and diamond earring studs alongside her emerald-cut diamond engagement ring and an overflowing bouquet of blush roses, white garden roses, anemone, amaranthus and eucalyptus designed by Stems Floral Design + Event Styling. The charming white Victorian-style exterior of The Allan House provided the picture perfect backdrop, not only for their wedding, but for the most lovely pre-wedding portraits.
Congrats to Feather & Twine for snagging their third Brides of Austin cover! Stay tuned to see Paige and Alex’s wedding featuring even more amazing Austin wedding vendors (including decor and rentals from Loot Rentals and Premiere Events, entertainment by Plush Party Band, and our fave wedding pet attendant – The Pet Gal) – we promise you won’t want to miss it!
