Austin Spring Wedding Inspiration

Photos By: Photo by Betsy

One of our favorite things about this styled shoot from the wonderful Photo by Betsy, Bricolage Curated Florals, and Olive & Rye is how it shows you don’t need a ton of color to give off a feeling of spring. Sure, we love loud punches of color, but the crisp white and green color palette in this wedding inspiration makes us feel refreshed, inspired, and helps us focus on the love between the bride and groom.

From the photographer, Photo by Betsy: This Nordic-inspired Spring shoot was brought on simply by the idea of a “simple” wedding. I wanted to photograph something clean, sweet, and clear. For place mats, we gathered white/off-white records. The place “cards” are found river rocks marked just by using a white sharpie paint pen tied with a thin piece of twine around them for a simple frill. 2Tarts Bakery in New Braunfels contributed a smooth two-tiered white cake, creme brûlée macaroons and jam thumbprint cookies (placed on a vintage hand drum).

With a flower-adorned passed-down ladder and old photos of family members in love, we tied in personal touches. For smaller details, the bride wore a brown beaded belt from Anthropologie and the groom wore a precious ivory whale tie clip from J. Crew. We had so much fun celebrating the couple’s love and gawking at every simple touch from the shoot’s designer.

North Arm Farm Wedding

Photos By: The Nickersons

How can you go wrong with a bride who wants her wedding attire styled after a classic Grace Kelly gown? Natasshia has always loved the stylish white dress worn by Grace in To Catch a Thief, so Ivy & Aster’s “Oh Joy” was a perfect pick to duplicate the look. The Nickersons captured Natasshia in just this gown and the rest of the day’s festivities with her love, Garrett. Let’s dive in!

From the bride, Natasshia: I wanted our day to be the best day ever with lots of our personality shining through all the little details! It started out with finding the perfect venue! We love the mountains and we couldn’t have asked for a better background! It was important to us to keep things local. From the food, to the beers, and even the homemade jam as wedding favours. We wanted our guests to genuinely have a great time, making it as memorable for them as it was for us! I’ve always loved that scene in “To Catch a Thief” with Grace Kelly and knew that my dress would be of similar style. I went with Ivy & Aster’s Oh Joy dress, a clean and classic silhouette. I was pleased to find out that it had pockets! I did minimal accessorizing but had fun by choosing Badgley Mischka’s Randall shoes in rose satin!

A majority of the decor was actually handmade — from the wedding invitations, signage, centerpieces, bow ties, and the bouquets too! To cut down costs, I proposed we make our bouquets too. Garrett was such a good sport about agreeing on all my ideas even if it meant he had to do a lot of work! We started with a few prototypes, playing with different papers which we ended up using as our centerpieces. Once we got our technique down, we perfected the bridesmaids’ bouquets as well as mine! I’ve been practicing my calligraphy and wanted to incorporate some of it for the day of. I hand painted the welcome sign, directions, menu, seating chart, as well as signs for the drinks and dessert table. We finished them off by hanging with yarn and branches.

Favourite moments from the day included waking up to the sound of the rain outside the window, but it didn’t matter because I was getting married to the man I love! As we were getting ready, I got a text from our coordinator saying “The sun is winning!”. The rest of the day was perfect and you’d never know it rained that morning! Right before he walked me down the aisle, my dad gave me a huge hug and kiss – which got me even more emotional. Also, sitting back together as husband and wife, and watching all our friends and family that came to celebrate with us.
