Vintage Texas Wedding at The Cottages on Mill Creek

Inspired by their love of the great outdoors and classic oldies tunes, Bri and Tim celebrated their marriage at The Cottages on Creek Mill, an intimate bed and breakfast full of vintage vibes and rustic aesthetics, deep in the Texas countryside. The inviting grounds were the perfect setting for a timelessly elegant reception, furnished with antiques and bursting with flowers. Hanging floral buckets, an enormous bridal bouquet created by Foxglove and Grace Flowers and the fresh alter arrangements DIY’d by the bridesmaids. Short, white bridesmaids dresses made the colorful flowers ‘pop’ beautifully – reds, oranges, purples and coral looked even brighter against the classic white lace and off-the-shoulder silhouette. The bride’s lace wedding gown handmade by Polina Ivanova was inspired by classic vintage romance: a low back and sheer long sleeves and loads of lace, updated with a casual braid dotted with tiny pearls.

The Wedding:

The Cottages on Mill Creek, Round Top, Texas

The two main things I wanted was our wedding to be outdoors and a lot of florals! I couldn’t decide on a color theme so I just wanted it to be colorful, but natural too!

Leading up to the ceremony and the ceremony, the anticipation and the emotions were all super high. Our brains were foggy and scattered, but when we walked down the isle there was a sense of relief and so much love!

The ceremony aesthetics were completely DIY and we kept it simple. The venue had benches which we used, Bri made the hanging floral buckets with fresh flowers, and the bridesmaids made the altar floral arrangement. We set up the whole ceremony in front of the lake on the property, we knew the sun set over the lake around the time of the ceremony so it made a beautiful backdrop for our special moment!

The venue was beautiful and green and allowed us to have an outdoor wedding. The property also had 3 houses on it which we were able to rent out the whole property for the weekend, which worked out perfectly because we had a lot of family from out of town, and we were all able to accommodate almost everybody! It made for a nice family weekend getaway/reunion out in the country.

I really wanted a lot of lace, I wanted that classic vintage look. My dress was one of the most important things to me! I had my dress handmade by a designer in Bulgaria, I sent her every measurement possible. It took her almost 3 months to make and it arrived a WEEK before the wedding, it was risky, but it fit perfectly! It was everything I could have imagined.

We are both oldies fans, so we played a lot of classic 60’s 70’s and 80’s. Bri walked down the isle to a piano and cello version of Somewhere Over The Rainbow by The Piano Guys, we made our ceremony exit to the Instrumental version of Don’t Stop Believin’ from The Wedding Singer (One of the brides favorite movies), and our first dance was to Coming Home by Leon Bridges.
