Bohemian Black Tie Wedding: Heather + Tibaut – Part 1

bride and groom

We’re guessing the title of today’s post caught your eye. Bohemian black tie?! Yep, you read that right. And we promise it’s just as amazing as it sounds. In fact, this beautiful celebration also graces the pages of the Spring issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, so you may recognize it from there! And we couldn’t squeeze all of the goodness into one post, so be sure to come back in a little while to see the 2nd half of this epicly beautiful celebration!

Heather + Tibaut are creative, music-loving Brooklynites who tied the knot at Heather’s family ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas – just outside of Austin. Together, with the help of The Nouveau Romantics, they created a day that was steeped in Texas tradition + perfectly reflected their personal love story. And while the term ‘black tie’ was more theoretical than literal, there was definitely a sense of timeless romance to Heather + Tibaut’s wedding that proves you can, in fact, host the most elegant of celebrations, even in a rustic setting.

Big thanks to The Nichols for sharing their stunning captures of H + T’s beautiful day with us and, of course, best wishes to the happy newlyweds!

Can you believe Heather made this gorge dress herself?! We almost can’t! If you’re not quite as crafty (we hear ya!) but are loving this look, check out BHLDN’s Dakota Gown, which would look beautiful paired with their Chantilly Capelet.

Heather walked down an aisle lined with wildflowers, arriving to a free-form, handmade ceremony arch created by 1500 stems of blooming cherry + pear branches. We’re not sure it gets prettier than this!

This is a bridal party of epic proportions! Sometimes it’s just more fun to invite everyone – especially when you’re hosting a big wedding at home!

  2. I’m not normally into the bohemian theme, but this wedding is captivating and beautiful! I love the lush and elegant look of the flowers and floral crown, and the view from the ceremony site is to die for.

  3. We’re thrilled to share this stunning wedding on GWS! Such an unbelievably beautiful wedding to document!

    • Hi Jennifer! Your wedding was absolutely stunning and I am having something similar in July (boho themed). I was wondering where you got the gold pronged stands that you used to hold up your “Cards” sign.
      Thank you!

  4. that is so rad that she made the dress herself!

  6. Beautiful Arch, Well decorated Aisle and Great Photography too !

  7. I absolutely loved the arch and how it framed you in the pictures. So gorgeous. Do you know how it was made or what kind of vine/flowers they used? I love it’s scale.
