When deciding on a theme for this wedding inspiration shoot, I was immediately drawn to the fact that Austin TX has become such a huge destination wedding city. This really intrigued me because the idea of a destination wedding typically always involves going somewhere tropical or European. With that said, I decided to play with the idea of bringing a colorful fun tropical twist to the Texas Hill Country!
Summer in Texas can get pretty hot so I designed with the idea of creating a tropical escape within Texas at the beautiful, modern farmhouse venue, Mae’s Ridge. Colorful florals and bright giant fruits helped make this vision come to life. Add some tropical fun drinks and we could almost hear the ocean at this summer lovin’ styled shoot.
My ultimate goal for this design was to show brides that you can bring any theme or idea to Texas, and more importantly your dream wedding! Have fun designing in the planning process ladies! The end result can really surprise you. And the memories of this special day will stay with you forever!
My wonderful team of vendors really understood the assignment and it was incredibly exciting and rewarding to watch “Destination Texas” come to life!
