The Vine has some of the best cottages for you and your wedding party to hang out and get all pretty. Some of my favorite pictures to look through are the getting ready images. They show pure joy as everyone prepares to celebrate the couple. My favorite moments are always those involving the couples parents, so I try and make time for images for the bride getting ready with mom. Thankfully, we had more than enough time for some sweet moments on the back porch with Taylor and her mom, as well as one of the sweetest first looks with her dad (enjoy the pictures...I sure did!).
We also got to fit in some sweet time with Taylor’s bridesmaids! One of the big things Taylor wanted was a moment before all the crazy started for she and her bridesmaids to pray together. You can also peek behind the door and see Taylor and Connor’s sweet little boy joining in on the prayer time. The biggest thing I desire for my clients is that they have enough time on their day to enjoy the smallest of moments. After all, you chose your wedding party because they’re the ones you want by your side on your special day!
Second, the wedding party -- I know I already gushed about the groomsmen, but the whole party was amazing! You could tell that they were there for the bride and groom, to make their day as special as possible. I also have to mention the rockstar flower girl and ring bearer. Those kids made my day. I love kids, and personally think that they are the best part of the wedding party. Mainly because they’re so darn cute, but also because they bring such life to the group!! I may also be partial to these two because of how connected the little flower girl and I were (pictured…). I also loved our ring bearer, because no matter how slow the flower girl was walking, he stuck with her until the very end.
Our wedding design team had the pleasure of planning alongside a wedding venue on the outskirts of Houston, Texas, The Meekermark, for their annual Date Night event. After meeting with the venue staff, our planners went to work gathering the missing vendor details and information for a “Modern Palm Springs Romance” design. Our team loves all things tropical and beachy - we wanted to take our love for island life and infuse it into the design that would perfectly compliment the agrarian meets modern charm of the venue.
Our team created a focal head table for design inspiration that fully embraced the modern + palm springs + romantic vibe. With Valentine’s Day being the special day of the event, we put our heads together with Urban Rubbish and chose to stick with bleached + white + creamy florals, adding in pink and peach tones. For linens, we incorporated luxe velvet linens in various tones of mauve, toffee and cream, with pops of amethyst provided by House of Hough. Pink napkins that played off of the protea colors were at each place setting with a delicious cupcake from Truly Scrumptious.
THE BRIDAL LOOK
A design isn’t complete without a model bride - read florist turned model (Evann you rock!!!) - to round out the whole look! We were thrilled to get Evann all dolled up to model the best floral head piece and bleached + palm springs bridal bouquet. It gave me all the boho, beachy vibes and made my heart sing!!!
Ivanov Artistry captured our look and vibe perfectly with the most fabulous braid incorporated! It embraced the romantic meets boho look effortlessly and the floral piece rounded out the “modern palm springs” aspect of the design. The whimsical bleached ferns….y’all, it was magic!
