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.
I am always obsessed and continually impressed with the florals Urban Rubbish designs for us. It is crucial to hire the right vendors to create a final look, and Jaelynn never fails us!

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!
