Teal tones, soft pinks and metallics come together in this modern mix of bold color inspiration from Virginia Ann Photography, found on page 113 of the Spring/Summer 2018 issue of Brides of Austin! Lakeway Resort and Spa served as the backdrop for this delightfully colorful editorial, while Pink Champagne Paper‘s contemporary invitation suite foreshadowed the tones that would later appear in the stunning, modern cakes by 2tarts Bakery, furniture from Loot Rentals and even the bold florals by Clementine Botanical Art. Ethereal hair and classic makeup by flAir Style Lounge work perfectly with the bride’s billowing princess gown from Blush Bridal Lounge. Such a fabulous modern mix of vivid colors, brought together in an understated way that doesn’t lose that wow factor – we’re in love!

We’re back with a new edition of our Planner Profile series today, featuring Becky Navarro and her team at Pearl Events Austin! Becky has planned just about every type of event, from glamorous weddings to eco-friendly dinners, corporate events, parties for major television networks and everything in between. Becky’s favorite part of her job? Sharing in precious moments with her clients. Her approach to planning weddings is to relish the small details without losing sight of the bigger picture. “One of my favorite moments is being with a bride right before she walks down the aisle. It’s so emotional, and it’s rewarding to help her fully experience and enjoy that moment, without the stress or distraction of event details,” Becky says.

Becky and her team of six professional Austin wedding planners are a respected group of women, known for planning and executing fantastic, memorable events and serving their clients wholeheartedly along the way. “We have an office in central Austin off 38th Street and our whole team comes to the office every day. It allows us to collaborate, ask questions, pick each other’s brains and have great vendor meetings. Our style is typically timeless, classic with a touch of trendy. We don’t like to go too overboard with trends because then events can look dated, but we do like to stay current. We also really enjoy rigging things from the ceiling and designing really show-stopping hanging installations,” Becky says. Keep scrolling to see more of the Pearl Events team’s beautiful work!

Gabby and Russell’s wedding was far from cookie cutter. The bride loved the idea of incorporating unique textures and darker romantic tones. They did the grey and gold thing, before it was a thing! Each and every detail reflected the couple’s personalities. For example, the first flowers Russell ever gave Gabby were orange pincushions, so the florist made sure to incorporate those into the bridal bouquet. Small touches like that made this wedding so very special.

“I love the outdoor space at the Four Seasons and love it even more with their turf! This was one of my favorite weddings because e had never done this lighting install before and I LOVE hanging things when we are inside a room. This gave us the impact of having something from above and it was so beautiful! We started the lighting install on Friday and it just turned out so lovely and dreamy!” Becky shares.

As for other trends, Becky says she’s “really enjoying the trend of small guest counts to use budget on thoughtful details: florals, tabletop, stationery, food, etc. Couples are choosing to have less people so they can use their budget to create their dream wedding!”

When pantsuit after pantsuit began making their way down April’s New York Bridal Fashion Week runway, we were anxious to see this trend make an appearance in the local Austin wedding scene. Little did we know what a wow factor this must-have look would have. Kristin La Voie Photography beautifully captured this chic new style in this minimal and modern styled bridal shoot. The West Coast vibe of Austin wedding venue The Contemporary Austin at Laguna Gloria was an obvious choice to showcase this laid back bridal attire. Complete with an organic bouquet playing with a color palette of the Pantone color of the year, ultra violet, created by Clementine Botanical Art, the model bride was stunning in effortless tousled waves and barely there makeup. Her sleek jumpsuit was juxtaposed with an elegant cathedral-length veil for a moderate dose of classic bridal essence. We can’t wait to see Austin’s fashion-forward brides rocking this look in the coming season! Happy Friday!

Blushing Autumn Color Inspiration from Captivating Weddings

We may be stepping into spring, but it’s never too early to plan a fall wedding. This blushing autumn wedding editorial from page 105 of our latest Brides of Austin issue gives us so much gorgeous inspiration! Captured by Captivating Weddings at the incredible Blanton Museum of Art, cool blue tones meet warm autumn hues in a stunning setup full of texture and whimsy. The fall floral arrangements from Westbank Flower Market really set the tone, while woven rugs and copper pedestal tables from Party at the Moontower give a retro-boho vibe, along with the wooden chairs and leather couch in the lounge area. The delicate floral place settings from Breed & Co bring in more feminine elements, complemented by whimsical calligraphy signage on wood from Haley Wynn Designs. The bride looks oh-so-chic with soft makeup and a bubbled ponytail by Gloss Beauty Boutique, donning a darling blush-toned gown from Serendipity Bridal and jewelry by Eliza Page. Fall weddings certainly don’t have to be dreary or dark, and we love that about this blush-and-blue inspiration with pops of autumn tones. It all works together so beautifully! Happy planning!
