Bohemian Chic Wedding at Camp Lucy

Hillary and Tanner met through a mutual friend–on the phone. They talked for four months before they ever even met in person! The two fell in love, and dated for three years before Tanner proposed, surrounded by family and friends on Hillary’s birthday.

The couple got to work planning their perfect wedding. The venue at Camp Lucy in Dripping Springs, TX, was perfect for their “Bohemian Chic” theme. With a moody color palette in blush, sage, burgundy, navy, and gold, it was sure to be a glamorous evening.

Racheal Bumbolo at Smock Design created their invitation suite, setting the tone for the wedding weekend. Hillary’s beautiful lace accented gown by Bliss by Monique Lhullier, from Nordstrom Bridal Suite, was gorgeously complemented by navy bridesmaids dresses by Show Me Your Mumu. The girls looks were completed with makeup by Lola Beauty ATX.

Whim Hospitality took Hillary and Tanner’s vision and theme, and designed the perfect florals, with stunning and unique flower types, creating a bohemian fall wonderland with an arch for the ceremony, and tall sculptural arrangements at the reception. Rachel L’Antigua photographed the day, and ByDesign Films captured every moment on video.

Most important to Hillary and Tanner–more so than the theme or the setting–was being surrounded by friends and family. Hillary says “After my dad’s death, my only wish was for everyone to be in the same room, happy and celebrating. Our wedding was the exact image of my wish.” Hillary felt the wedding was a beautiful celebration of her father’s life.

Hillary’s favorite moment of the wedding was seeing Tanner so happy at the end of the aisle, and knowing they would be interlaced forever. She was walked down the aisle by her brother, Harry Jr., whom she had only found out about the day before her father’s funeral. After the initial flood of emotions, Hillary and her brother quickly bonded and caught up on all the time they missed, and she felt blessed to be able to include him in such a special way. She said “God and my dad were smiling on our marriage.”

Guests danced the night away with music played by the Walton Stout Band, and lighting that helped set the ambiance of the space was provided by Intelligent Lighting Design. My Event is The Bomb was there with a photo booth to capture memories for all of Hillary and Tanner’s guests. Their cakes were made by Sweet Treats Bakery.

Hillary’s advice to other couples planning their weddings is “Don’t count down the days, plan every day exactly what you need to but don’t overdo it too quickly. There is time for everything to be planned, don’t stress. Enjoy being engaged because it is a great journey!” What great advice, Hillary!

Congratulations to Hillary and Tanner!

 

Rustic Elegant Wedding at The Venue at Waterstone

Amy met Ian on Match.com, after some friends encouraged her to sign up. They were both convinced it was a waste of time, until they found each other in January 2016. They were married two years later!

When Ian proposed, he took Amy to her best friend’s painting studio. Behind her blank canvas was a hand-painted sign that said “Will You Marry Me?” Amy said that even though she had a hunch he was going to propose, it was so special to her, especially to have her best friend there for such an important occasion.

Then the two were ready to start planning their dream wedding! Amy knew she wanted a rustic theme that would combine her love of horses and the outdoors with Ian’s work as a police officer. After meeting with vendors and finding her perfect Madison James dress, the theme evolved into “Rustic Elegance.” The Venue at Waterstone was the perfect location.

The color navy blue was a main theme throughout the wedding, complemented by stunning floral from Freesia in shades of purple, green, and blush. Sable and Gray created the perfect invitations to set the tone for the evening.

One of Amy’s favorite parts of the day was getting ready with her best friends, and the amazing hair and makeup artist, Anita Brown, from Elan Makeup. Amy loved having her two oldest friends as bridesmaids, and their daughters as flower girls.

Brown-Eyed Girls Acapella Quartet provided beautiful prelude music for the ceremony. Le Force Entertainment kept the party going with Amy and Ian’s favorite songs for the reception, as well as lighting to pinpoint their tables and accent the room.  Valentina Vladi Photography captured the night perfectly.


Tastefully Yours catered the dinner, and Amy and Ian had a beautiful cake from Delicious Cakes. Instead of a groom’s cake, they had a donut bar! (We love this idea!) 


Family is important to Amy and Ian, so having her Uncle Bob perform the wedding ceremony was meaningful to both of them. Another priceless family moment Amy recalled was her brother’s toast: “My brother’s toast made my day…maybe even my year…Everyone in the room that has been a part of my life since I was a child remembered the stories he told and was laughing hysterically.”

In reflecting on her wedding, Amy has some advice for future brides: “Everything will work out and it will be fine, don’t stress. It’s just one day!” After all, she said, “The best part of being married is being able to start a life with someone I love.” We wish Amy and Ian all the best in their life together!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
