Preppy Styled Shoot

NAVY SEERSUCKER – BRIGHT FUCHSIA ACCENTS – BEST OF ALL, A RAW OYSTER BAR!! Inspired by the lakefront and Austin’s boating culture, this chic and casual shoot featured navy seersucker fabrics, bright fuchsia accents, and best of all, a raw oyster bar! Navy blue seersucker fabric decorated every piece of paper from the save the dates to the belly button band on the invitations. Each bouquet was wrapped in a monogrammed seersucker fabric and a pop of bright pink ribbon. Lanterns filled with flowers hung from the trees at the ceremony site and a beautiful garland was draped to block off the aisle way of the ceremony. We showcased a floral monogram using rose petals at the front of the aisle. The head table was full of lush fuchsia florals and hanging globes, embellished by candle lit and gold accents. To enhance a more casual feel, we added a hammock next to a hanging floral arrangement using a captain’s wheel, which was infused with fuchsia florals. In the dining room were large windows ornamented with hanging butterflies so that the lake scenery was incorporated into this setting. Fruitwood farm tables were under our white, blue, and pink cake in the center, surrounded by petaphors held by white cake stands. An alcohol tray anchored the clear polka dotted wine glasses and wine, which was wrapped in seersucker cloth. We used the same table layout to display our red and white striped marshmallow party favors on top of monogrammed seersucker napkins. One of the biggest highlights of the wedding was the delicious raw oyster bar, which was such a clever way to deliver our theme. The blue and pink handmade escort cards were fan folded with names on the top, & a white wire boat was used to hold the gifts brought by guests, which we felt was the perfect touch of nautical to add to our Hamptons themed wedding at Bella Varenna, a new lakefront venue in Austin, TX.
