There is something particularly lovely about a classic romantic wedding theme. One with gorgeous white flowers and a Spring colour palette. Elegant touches of gold and plenty of candlelight. A beautiful bride in a gorgeous gown and a sophisticated white wedding cake to match. A romantic theme which includes plenty of gorgeous details which will stand the test of time. Well, this lovely Texas soiree by SMS Photography has all that and more. Simple, stylish and stunning, it’s a classic style of wedding, which will never go out of style, and we couldn’t cherish it more.
Bride Kara shares the details:
Wedding Theme & Colours
Our wedding theme was classic and romantic with a few unique touches. The color palette was spring blues and greens with classic gold and creme.
My wedding dress was a fit and flare style with a simple bodice, underlay and train. It featured origami like rosettes attached to the flared skirt. My bridesmaid dresses woree knee length taffeta dresses in a soft shade of spring blue/green.
The most important aspect of our wedding was to create a classic and romantic feel with a fun atmosphere for our family and friends! I envisioned an outside location, but because our wedding was held right in the middle of Spring, I was nervous about the weather. My mother and I visited at least 10 places around Austin before choosing Austin Country Club. The country club is beautiful both inside and out with the golf course overlooking Lake Austin and the lush grounds of the country club. It was the ideal venue to achieve my desire of the perfect mix of outdoors and in.
Decorations & Flowers
The wedding decor was carefully placed but not over the top. We splashed the entire room from tables to window sills with candles. We also had up lighting around the walls and the band brought a great light setup for the stage. We also chose several combinations of flower arrangements to add some height and variety on each table. We incorporated silver/gold mercury glass cups filled with flowers to go along with tall glass arrangements. We chose flowers like white and green hydrangeas, white frizzled tulips, white cala lillies, and green bells of Ireland which spoke for themselves.
Wedding Cake & Favours
We decided to only give out koozies as a favor at the rehearsal dinner. For the wedding cake, I wanted something simple with a unique twist. I chose a cake with flowers cascading down the front to imulate my flowers on my wedding dress. Miranda Lambert used the same cake a few months later!!!
DIY & Personalized Details
We had a few personalized details throughout the weekend. First, my husband surprised his groomsmen with seersucker suits and they wore the jackets at the rehearsal dinner. I had Kendra Scott earrings customized and created for my Bridesmaids to wear on the wedding day. They also received a white button down with their initial monogram on the left upper chest to get ready in on the day. At the reception, we created an arrangement to look like a dogwood tree (state tree of Missouri) and displayed it in the front foyer in memory of my family. There were candles hanging from the chandelier above it.
What made your wedding unique?
THE BAND! They were an awesome band called Nash Vegas Allstars. My parents had seen them play in Branson and we had to have them. They had never even been to Austin before my wedding. They had the entire crowd on the dance floor all night!
What was your biggest challenge?
Making sure everything at the venue was arranged on schedule. I did use a wedding planner who only started a couple months before the wedding. In hindsight, I probably should have employed her from the get go!
What were your favorite moments?
At the altar, Anthony forgetting to repeat his lines after the pastor because he was just staring into my eyes. Also, dancing the night away with our friends! Our friends still to this day say how much fun they had at our lively wedding!
How would you sum up your wedding day?
It was just a relaxing, warm and celebratory day where we could really feel the love from those we love!
