Shawn and Dan had a beautiful May wedding under the garden arch. Shawn carried a unique bouquet of white ranunculus, white hydrangea, seeded euchalyptus, rosemary and green succulents. Boutonnieres consisted of fresh rosemary, white ranunculus, and seeded euchalyptus.

Guests enjoyed cocktails under the large native Pecan tree behind the Mansion as the sun set. Inside the Artisan Ballroom, table centerpieces featured a variety of antique bottles collected by the bride with multicolored ranunculus and succulents. The bride’s cake was simple, clean, and delicious! Dan’s mother was surprised with a birthday cake and a rousing round of ‘happy birthday’ and guests dance the night away to a fantastic 70’s band—Skyrocket with Trish Murphy.

Andrea and Robert

Andrea and Robert had a beautiful brunch wedding reception on June 28th. Guests arrived to bloody mary’s and mimosas under the fans of the Pecan Tree, as the bride and groom greeted everyone. With record-breaking temperatures all week in Texas, everyone was very happy to move into the ballroom pretty quickly and enjoy gospel music from Bells of Joy—a truly soulful treasure who were so much fun to watch.

Table centerpieces featured potted plants with white blossoms, which guests were able to take home after the reception. The bride’s cake was a tall three-tiered carrot cake with cream cheese icing and bright green hydrangea in between the layers. The groom’s cake was cheesecake with a fleur de lis pattern in the middle surrounded by fresh raspberries.

Andrea and Robert were married in the mountains in a sweet and special ceremony just for the two of them—so at the reception they played a slideshow for their friends and family to be able to see the ceremony. It was a beautiful, relaxed, and fun reception—a good time was had by all.

Thank you Brad with Hyde Park Photography, for the (as always) wonderful photos.
