Rustic Chic South Carolina Forest Wedding

December 14, 2019 | brooke

From the moment Danielle spent time on the land Kyle grew up going to, her dream was to get married in the middle of those woods — and you know how much we love a boho South Carolina forest wedding! Alyson Taylor Events helped the couple pull off their vision complete with with a clear top tent to show off the night sky and the most adorable Jade + May Co. caravan bar. If you’re into DIY projects, you’re going to love the couple’s ceremony backdrop that Kyle made for their home and repurposed for their wedding day decor! With all of that and even more, we’re all heart eye’d over every photograph Emily Magers Photography captured of Danielle and Kyle’s special day!

The Couple:

Danielle & Kyle

The Wedding:

Private Residence, Smyrna, South Carolina

My husband and I are not the most sentimental so I made him a leather wallet and inside it was a Concert ticket to Justin Timberlake (his favorite guy). He gave me a amazing white Bathing suit from Frankie’s Bikinis for our honeymoon (with the help of my sisters) and a soda water machine with an arrangement of bitters because I always said thats the one thing I want in my house. We also wrote each other notes with our personal vows in them because we did traditional vows at the ceremony.

My photographer was AWESOME. She was super genuine and friendly, did not seem to ever stress and was all around just good at what she does. She made us feel comfortable in front of the camera.

Since meeting my husband and seeing the land he grew up going to, it was a dream of mine to be able to get married in the middle of the woods there. That being said, we literally found a spot on the land (in the middle of a ton of trees) with a little space and set up our ceremony right there. I wanted a super deep and meaningful ceremony while still being short enough people wouldn’t get bored and then just a crazy party with lots of food, drink, and dancing with the ones we love.

The most memorable part of my day was no doubt walking through the wooded land to the rugs(where the aisle started) and seeing my smokin’ husband and everyone I love together. I felt more in that moment than I ever have before.

There were a lot of details I didn’t necessarily care about and some I really did. Focus on the ones you really care about and be flexible with the others. Once you get to the day of, let go of all of it and simply enjoy your day with your bridesmaids and all the moments of that night with your husband, even if nothing goes right. I promise it will still be the best day of your life.

Lush Emerald Fairmount Park Horticulture Center Wedding

December 13, 2019 | brooke

When searching for their dream venue, Jill and Tommy asked each other, “If we could host the party of a lifetime, traditional wedding expectations aside, where would we have the most fun?” A Fairmount Park Horticulture Center wedding was the perfect vibe—laid back, yet stunning—for their day! Plus, they didn’t have to worry about inclement weather getting in the way of decor or the magical florals Vault + Vine created. We’re swooning over the details Clover Event Co helped the couple put together, especially the fun seating area provided by Maggpie Vintage. Pro tip: A seating area can double as an awesome photo location, just scroll to see the talented Casey Crowe Taylor Photography‘s beautiful captures of every emotion and detail from this lush, emerald-inspired Fairmount Park Horticulture Center wedding!

We are both designers, and overall style was an important element. We wanted a vibe that was fun, magical, and expressed our personalities. Time of year was an important consideration, as October is a favorite month for both of us. There’s just something special in the air during early fall and we wanted that something at our wedding.

Wedding planning advice from the couple: The wedding day is short, but the year (or more!) spent planning is such a special, celebratory time, and it’s important to not lose perspective of that and really enjoy it. Additionally, split your to-dos into 2 or 3 month chunks. Not everything needs to be started as soon as you get engaged. Our wedding planner, Caitlin, taught us that one and it came as a huge relief!

We couldn’t have done it without Caitlin at Clover Event Co. Her killer combination of an eye for style and a mind for event planning were absolutely unbeatable. No detail was overlooked; she understood our vision so perfectly and helped us bring it to life. Her reassuring and positive presence throughout the planning process made the whole experience so much fun.

Walking down the aisle was my favorite moment! Not only was it *the* moment, but it was also the first time each of us got to see every person we love gathered together in one room. It was an amazingly touching moment.

Our main color was deep pine green. It was inspired by the botanical surroundings of our venue, and chosen to introduce a bit of October moodiness. We used a handful of accents – rust, olive, and gray for decor and linens, as well as pops of fuchsia, blush, and burgundy in our florals for an element of whimsy.

This Tropical Prospect House Wedding Perfectly Nails Austin Cool

December 12, 2019 | brooke

Ashley and Regina “brought Tulum to Texas” with their minimalist and tropical Prospect House wedding! Everything about this day gave off those cool vibes that only Austin has. The rad greenery and palm leaf arrangements designed by Wild Bunches Floral totally POP against the blank canvas the Prospect House wedding venue offers. If you’re into unique details, you’re going to obsess over this couple’s personalized salted caramel pecan praline party favors and photo wall! Get ready to get all heart-eye’d because Jeff Brummett Visuals absolutely nailed photographing Ashley and Regina’s love!

The Couple:

Ashley & Regina

The Wedding:

Prospect House, Dripping Springs, TX

We had met Jeff for our engagement photos which was really nice because on our wedding day it felt like we already knew him. He is a story teller, which is exactly what we wanted. He captured our day so perfectly….instead of just taking photos, he created a story, captured a day, captured the essence of our wedding. We had two photographers and two videographers, and they all meshed so perfectly! We couldn’t be happier with the memories!

Regina found this venue while we were just poking around. A week or so after we were engaged, they were having an open house. It was the only place in the Austin area that piqued our interest. We thought about possibly eloping If we didn’t love the venue in person. We wanted a simple space we could make our own. When we visited Prospect House we knew it was where we had to get married. We loved the floor to ceiling windows, the simplicity, the white walls, and the shotgun style shape. We knew it was the place we had to get married.

Wedding planning advice from the couple: Spreadsheets, spreadsheets, spreadsheets! It all gets very overwhelming. Keeping organized and taking your time is so important. Also, don’t let the “day of” stuff ruin your mood…find a good planner who will take care of anything that goes “wrong.” And if something does go wrong, just let it be! All in all its your wedding day, as long as you and your partner are there, everything is great!

We wanted it to feel clean & modern with a tropical vibe. We went to Tulum a few years back and fell in love with it. We brought Tulum to Texas! We aren’t the type of people who really love flowers so we didn’t want flowers on our wedding day. We wanted GREEN everything! The florist brought our tropical / boho chic vibe to life.
