An Intimate Texas Wedding: Amanda + Steven

Amanda is a Texas gal at heart, but moved to New York for her dream job and ending up meeting her soul mate Steven there. I love that they share their “New York Love Story” in their lovely wedding invitations and that you can really see their personalities in the day. And Amanda’s wedding attire is super unique – a plaid shirt and tull skirt – love! Thanks to Bend the Light photography for letting me share this unique wedding and congrats to Amanda + Steven. :)

cameo wedding invite

Love their unique invitation from Mr. Boddington’s Studio which tells Amanda + Steven’s love story. Here’s what it says:

December 11, 2009:
Amanda packs up and leaves little old Fairfield, Texas
for New York City to pursue her high-fashion dreams.

January 27, 2010
While shopping for cashews one day in Brooklyn, Steven strikes up a chat
with the girl holding a bag of pecans. He loves her Texas twang.

May 16, 2010
On their first date, Amanda wonders is Steven wears his hair
in a pompadour every day (he does). Steven wonders if there is a law
that prohibits vegetarians from dating meat-eaters (there isn’t).

July 3, 2010
After asking her twice, Steven officially proposes to Amanda in
Washington Square Park. Amanda officially says yes.

April 9, 2011
Vowing to always shop for groceries together,
the happy couple ties the knot in San Antonio.

How fun is Amanda’s out-of-the-ordinary wedding ensemble from J Crew!

I love first looks between the bride and groom, but this is the first time I’ve seen a first look between father + daughter and it is so incredibly sweet! Amanda and her dad are incredibly close, so she came up with the idea to do a special ‘first-look’ with her father.

Amanda + Steven’s wedding ceremony was very intimate  – there were a total of 5 wedding guests and 3 instrumentalists.

Love that they used their silhouettes on lots of the paper details! And with a small wedding, you have one table to focus on which keeps things a lot simpler. :)

Rustic Fall Wedding Inspiration

Even though this weekend felt more like summer here in LA, it is technically fall and I just love these sweet fall ideas Live View Studios are sharing with us today. Inspired by the autumn colors and foliage, they used lots of nautral materials in the shoot including leaves, feathers and wood. Burlap and colorful plaid were used as the fabrics of choice in various details and also brought all of the colors together. This is such an easily attainable look for any bride who wants a creative, whimsical, and rustic fall wedding – and the best part is that it’s relatively inexpensive.

After spotting this leaf flower tutorial on Design Sponge awhile back, they knew they wanted to incorporated that idea into the bride’s bouquet (and such a great way to save money on flowers for you fall brides!) Her bridal headpiece was also made using only fall tree leaves. The groom’s boutonniere was constructed entirely out of wrapped leaves combined with feathers, sticks, other autumn foliage, and golden ferns. The grooms suit was blue felt (love!), and the bride’s dress was an upcycled vintage wedding dress (found for $4 in a thrift store!) that was slightly modernized with a floral neckline.

Glass votive candle holders were wrapped in fall leaves and tied with twine, and purple candles were displayed in candleholders constructed out of pine logs. The food elements included a rustic pumpkin spice cake with a heart-cut leaf on top (and they can vouch that it’s quite tasty!), pumpkin pie tart bites, apple pie baked in a cast iron skillet and apple cider served in hollowed apples with cinnamon stir sticks.
