If you haven’t had the chance to tour The Gin at Hidalgo Falls, you are missing out on a historical gem! This family owned, recently restored wedding venue just outside of Houston and Austin, Texas is such a unique wedding venue option for those looking for somewhere marvelous to host their wedding day. With a neutral color palette of grey and white, along with a brick cove for a pop of warmth, this industrial meets rustic wedding venue is the perfect backdrop for any theme or color palette. As wedding planners and designers, we opted to create a design that was cohesive with the venue color and feel for a minimal meets industrial vibe.
THE COLOR PALETTE - GREY, WHITE, BLUSH, MIXED METALS
When choosing the color palette we opted to go with a monochromatic theme of grays and whites, utilizing the in-house metal chairs, and bringing in mixed metals for the tabletop candleholders. To add just a soft touch of color, Urban Rubbish incorporated subtle pink roses and buttery yellow-orange florals in glass compotes.
Neutral plates and sleek glassware created a modern and romantic setting without distracting from the overall design. Zinc tealights and brass votive holders lined the table to add ambiance and industrial touches. White napkins were simply folded on each place setting with a simple sprig of greenery to adorn each setting. The Bride and Groom place settings were marked by giving them a little extra floral pizazz. You may have seen in a previous design our favorite “pocket square” idea alongside Urban Rubbish in lieu of a traditional bout. We decided to carry over the pocket square design into the groom’s place setting with the napkin, and luscious rose for the Bride. As a final touch, hand-torn, luxe cotton paper with calligraphy names marked each seat, delicately crafted by Davis Art Co.
