Lace, linen and florals, oh my! From the talented T Walker Photography comes this summery styled shoot featuring romantic textures galore. With gold, blush and gray as the base color palette, the scene was brought to life with a candlelit cascading floral installation by Reiley + Rose on the venue’s outdoor limestone mantel along with a romantic patio tabletop with no detail forgotten. Place settings with gold chargers and calligraphed name cards on silk accompanied a textured runner and more gorgeous blooms, featuring hydrangeas, carnations and none other than roses, of course! We love how this styled shoot combines traditional and vintage elements, with mercury glass and fine china atop a classic oak table with French country style linen chairs. The bride’s A-line gown with three-dimensional lace appliqué and chic fishtail braid give an oh-so-romantic vibe, and the diamonds by Nicole Mera Jewelry perfectly complement her look! The 3D lace appliqué feature carries over to the regal five-tier cake, and even more romantic textures abound from the calligraphy to the catering. Such amazing inspiration for a Hill Country soirée! Cheers!

From the bride: “We met the old fashioned way – at a bar – back in 2011. Josh is a musician and had a gig at a local dive bar. I was having drinks with a group of girls when I saw him on stage and declared to my friend, “I’m gonna marry that dude.” Fortunately we had mutual friends there that night who introduced us, and we were virtually inseparable after that. Our wedding was simple and modern with a touch of vintage. I’m an interior designer, so I used lots of bits and pieces from our home and things I’ve collected over the years to make the evening extra special. My parents have always grown olive trees, and they were willing to trim the trees early so we could use the olive branches from their garden in our arrangements. Our colors were black and white with wild, neutral floral arrangements. One of my favorite details was having Josh’s father, who also a musician, perform during the ceremony and for our first dance.”
