Katherine and her husband, Chris, have their hands full of creative projects—so why not add one more? She’s the owner of Sweet August Events while he owns Squinted Cinema, and the talented two just added “wedding + event space owners” to that list, with the opening of East Crossing! The first industrial space in downtown San Antonio that can hold 200+ people, K + C were more than ready to show it off with a simple, organic design and an utterly enchanting two-piece wedding dress. Here’s the inspiration from Katherine:
Chris and I just got back from a gorgeous elopement in Tepotlzan, Mexico and I was so inspired by everything there. Most of us think of bright colors when we think of Mexico, and that’s true, but we got to experience a beautiful and natural environment. We stayed at a Holistic resort and woke up every morning with the mountains in view. Everything was a beautiful, oatmeal/neutral palette and by the second day I knew I wanted to use these shades in our all-white building.
Let’s have a look at the day’s details with lovely photography from Hey Beloved:
The linen + letter-pressed suite by Isidore and Augustine is the first of many stunningly simple details that came together in beautiful harmony.
A Stunning Black + White Wedding Dress
This romantic wonder by Emily Riggs features a long-sleeved nude lace top and a sweeping black skirt—cue the heart eyes!
Speaking of romance…those perfect curls and swoon-worthy makeup by Knot & Veil!
Clementine Botanical Art created a beautiful organic bouquet, filled with blooms + stems you might find growing in a backyard garden.
Katherine asked Christin at Clementine Botanical Art to design a floral head piece that mimicked a modern fascinator—didn’t she totally nail it?!
A Simple + Organic Table
Katherine didn’t go looking too far for tabletop rentals…she just pulled a few favorites from her own kitchen! Thanksgiving inspiration, anyone?
Stylists—they’re just like us! Katherine’s collection includes pieces from Target and West Elm! Here’s a few similar items to get this dreamy organic look in your own home:
What’s a gathering without dessert? This cake by 2Tarts Bakery is the cutest!!
