There’s something magical about a Texas desert wedding, think desert vibes-meets-western boho style plus a strong helping of “Texas forever” nostalgia. But before we dive in, let’s hear what inspired this shoot from the day’s photographer, Jessica at Under the Sun Photography.
This styled shoot at Gruene Estates personifies those vivid memories and the harmonious colors of a summer sunset in a big Texas sky. The styling, staging, and design plan was led by Sandra at Rustic Romance Rentals, with collaboration and implementation by planner and designer, Caroline at Volaré Planning & Design.
The bride wore a Rue de Seine gown from Unbridaled and cascading curls paired with a dried floral hairpiece by Love, Lipstick, and Lashes. Sunset was always in mind, so the mustard and terracotta velvet dresses from Bella Bridesmaids by Jenny Yoo were a perfect selection! Cakes Rock San Antonio created a romantic, bohemian, hand-painted, four-tiered wedding cake, accented with Cat Haus Rentals’s hand-carved wooden screen and cake table decor.
First up, the hand-stitched, textured invitation suite by Bell Papel set the sunset tones as the stars of the day. Next, the backdrop by Lesley’s Flowers and Gifts was composed of dried palm fronds found on Lesley’s family farm. Fresh dahlias, various protea, hand-painted anthurium, and lush garden roses pulled in those sunset hues. And what a bouquet! Dreamy chocolate cymbidium orchids and paddle cactus added a grand Texan vibe. Then, the blooms were wrapped up in a fringed leather bouquet wrap by Double J Saddlery — a little western flare for a boho bouquet. Rustic Romance Rentals designed a head table for the couple to take in the sunset under the shade of a Texas oak tree.
