Iceland-destination-wedding-Búðir, Snafellsnes-irisandlight-destination-wedding17

When I first met Julie and Chris, I knew they were genuine. We started planning their dream wedding, had settled into a private residence venue with history and charm. Both are in the real estate business so they can really appreciate a beautiful dwelling. All the details were starting to come together and after some soul searching the two decided they REALLY wanted to be married, like NOW. :) Julie & Chris decided to go in a completely different direction so the elopement planning ensued!  Their dream location to wed, Iceland. With the help of Iris and Light, the two boarded a plane with destination set to Búðir church and hotel.

Southern, Bohemian inspired Austin wedding

Documents30

He’s from London, she’s a native Texan. They live in Los Angeles but since they call many places home, they picked their favorite jam, Austin Texas. Once they set their eyes on the dreamy grounds of West Vista Ranch, there was no other place for them.  

Family and friends were directed by wooden signs under hanging lanterns and chandeliers to the ceremony site.  An antique sewing table held programs while wine barrels filled with Baby’s Breath and an arbor draped in vines and greenery completed the Bohemian vibe.

Carson donned a beautiful custom gown made my friend and designer, constructed of delicate floral straps that perfectly matched her boho braided hairstyle. Guests looked on under the shade of old oaks as she walked down an aisle of antique rugs to meet Matt who looked quite dapper in a navy suit and matching tie. 

Large King Proteas were showcased in the bride’s stunning bouquet with additional pops of color from pink Astilbes and Dahlias. The creams, blushes and tans from the bouquets and bridesmaid dresses added softness to the day that paired well with the weathered wood and aged tin of the property.  

An assortment of chairs and willow sphere lighting added a touch of Hill Country Charm to the reception while guests were treated to a variety of sweets including cookies, cakes and even an outdoor S’mores bar. The newlyweds were sent off in style under a tunnel of sparklers grateful for the support of their loved ones.

Riley + Bryant’s sweet and Southern wedding

So excited to peek a little of this wedding! The ceremony was held at the Founders Chapel at White’s Chapel UMC with reception following at Los Portales, Joe T Garcia’s in Fort Worth. The couple were from North Carolina and my team had only met the bride once before the big day, so it was imperative to work hard to understand their desired vision.  The bride’s mother, Kelly, works at  Anthropologie and so many of the details were Anthro/BHLDN items. SWOON! Kelly designed most of the event along with help from our team and knew exactly the feel she wanted set. The palette was lovely of mint, robins egg blue, pale peaches, coral, orange, and pinks. Adorable details like a wishing well guestbook alternative, peach stand wedding favors, skeleton key escort tags, and tablescapes of clustered Anthropologie bottles with blooms, gold antlers and fabulous vintage books. This is a designers DREAM detailed wedding. Now to the good stuff! More photos coming soon!
