Today we are throwing it back to our Tyler, Texas wedding shot by Liz Banfield. This was our glamour girl bride, and you know in Texas they go big! So there were lots of flowers and lots of luxe details (think sequin linens, golden antlers, etc). The bride’s wore a custom gown by Nardos Imam.
I was really pleased with how her lovely printed materials turned out. Lettered Olive created a custom monogram using antlers and lace from the bride’s gown. I love the two opposing masculine and feminine elements together. An idea for you to steal- the tags on the guest welcome bags (which were actually canvas shoe bags for guests to take home), doubled as “do not disturb” signs for the hotel rooms.
Our bride’s colorful bouquet full of an array of blooms was hand tied with the most lovely and sweet vintage ribbon. Really gave it that special finishing touch.
As you’ll see in more details, Lettered Olive also created the custom floral print that we had turned into fabric at Spoonflower to use throughout the wedding design- here we made custom little flower girl pouches.
Our couple didn’t do a first sight moment, so I found this such a touching moment of the mother being with the bride before walking down the aisle. And, that bow!!!!!!
The alter was overflowing with large cement urns full of flowers in the wedding colors. We got lucky with the alter cloth being so lovely and in line with our decor.
There are so many arrays of churches and decor out there. We love when the churches allow us a bit more freedom to decorate. We laid down a white carpet aisle runner to soften all of the dark in the space, and lined the aisle with boughs of greenery, candle lit lanterns with rose petals, and mini bouquets tied with bows to accent the bride’s gown. After the church ceremony, guests made their way to a private club for the seated dinner and dancing reception.
We didn’t want a huge emphasis on boozy drinks, so for cocktail hour we dressed up water with different combinations- here fresh strawberries and mint. And, the gold foil printed coasters announcing the new husband and wife were a big hit!
It has always seemed so strange to me to have this big white tent that is plain and plasticy on the outside but when you walk in, it’s this other world beautiful sight. So, for this wedding, we made a custom “carpet” with the antler logo, and fabric awning with our floral printed fabric and edging from Boutique Tents.
Inside was a fabric draped, rosey lit knockout space. We carpeted the tent in pale pink. The pale pink sequined linens were so pretty with the bold colorful centerpiece. Gold antlers and a mixture of candles added to the tablescapes. Custom embroidered logo napkins were an unexpected touch. And the tent in the center housed the wedding cake for a focal point to break up all of the tables.
The 5 tiered floral cake looked as if was supported by urns overflowing with matching blooms.
A coordinating dessert station offered guests more sweet treats.
Surrounding the dance floor, were seating nooks and cozy cabana tents where guests could enjoy cocktails and conversation.
Wine decanted with calligraphied tags, and a handwritten menu offer a much prettier bar design than displaying the not as attractive bottles on top of the bar! And, if budget only allows for basic label offerings- this is a lovely way to let guests know the varieties you are serving without mentioning the makers.
Servers in custom embroidered aprons presented guests late night offering on the dance floor- such a treat to have little sips and nibbles brought to you while boogying.
In true Texas Rose fashion, a big floral display adorned the fabulous getaway vehicle!
