This past weekend was an exciting one. After much planning and preparation, wedding show weekend was finally upon us here in Austin. I couldn’t be more happy and proud of how it all went and how our vision truly came together in ways we couldn’t envision. 2012 has made me so thrilled to see all the new trends and how the ones from 2011 evolve into something even better than before. The planning process for our theme gave us the opportunity to try new things and come up with a look that was truly “Plantation House,” but with a twist of something new.
Our theme started out with thoughts of Ralph Lauren. He always creates a look that is both appealing to men and women. Feminine meets masculine, if you will. Isn’t that what marriage is all about anyway? We used wood, leather, pearls, antique pocket watches, china, old book pages, and clocks. A perfect mixture of items that are beautiful and strong.
We partnered up with Pappas Catering and they served the most delicious poblano cream soup. Seriously, people were freaking out over this soup. One of my favorite parts of the day was the fashion show, styled by my good friend, Leonardo D’Almagro. He featured jewelry designs by Gay Isber and Beth McElhaney. I can’t wait to share more on these 3 fabulous people as the new year progresses! Overall, if was a fabulous day surrounded by incredibly creative and talented people!
