A wraparound front porch, stately columns and a manicured mansion lawn set the stage for this eye-catching Emerald Estate editorial illustrating pure elegance at a charming historical Austin wedding venue, planned and executed beautifully by Eclipse Event Co.! The Grand Lady served as the venue and backdrop for this editorial, which you can see in its entirety in the latest Brides of Austin issue! Wanting to show how a vintage, Hill Country venue can still be the perfect place to host a truly elegant, black-tie affair, the ladies at Eclipse Event Co. chose each element carefully to create a cohesive, formal look. The Bloom Bar‘s incredible florals helped achieve the formal vibes with anemones and an array of white blooms offering a sleek, monochromatic look. An intimate dinner party awaits with the lounge area and table from Zen Event Rentals, topped with chic linens and dinnerware from Marquee Event Rentals – what a duo! Deep emerald green, pops of gold and a sea of white all work seamlessly to form a magical, elegant affair at this historical Austin wedding venue, and we are enamored to say the least!

From the planners, Kristi Depew and Lauren Chumbley of Eclipse Event Co.: “With this design, we wanted a more modern, black tie formal look. The monochromatic plateware settings helped the greens and golds pop even more against the white table. The idea was to show how even a venue with vintage nods in the Hill Country can still be an elegant affair!”
From the florist, The Bloom Bar: “For this shoot, I really wanted to play up the dimensional white textures and the clean look of no greenery. One of my favorite touches were the blooming branches that added a wispy and ethereal look. I designed the ceremony backdrop to double as an accent around the dining table.”
