Hello! Is this thing still on? It has been a LONG time, but I’m SO ready to share a few special weddings that happened last year. First up, is Kristen and Justin’s wedding that went down at The Union on Eighth in Georgetown, Texas. I first fell in love with this venue back when I freelanced for my friend Without Wax Katy in 2015. She also happens to be the owner of this sweet little venue so when Kristen reached out to me about doing the florals for her summer wedding there I was instantly on board. If only for the excuse for a weekend in Georgetown (and eating at Monument Cafe), lucky for me the wedding turned out to be pretty adorable as well.

We originally had plans to adorn the outdoor arch with greenery, but last minute it was just too hot and Kristen decided to have the ceremony indoors and we created this asymmetrical floating altar of greenery. It was made entirely out of smilax and was so simple yet really made such a pretty focal point for the ceremony.

The simple centerpieces were SO easy. And take notes- if you want something simple and affordable, but also makes a BIG impact do this! We lined the tables in smilax and then did a ton of taper candles. It was so pretty. Thankfully The Union allows tapers because there are so many venues that do not.

We kept the cake super simple with just a few touches of florals and this is pretty much my favorite look for a cake lately. Super clean, white, but with some interesting proportions- see how that top tier is taller than the others? It’s a thoughtful little detail that makes the cake look so much more interesting than just a typical white cake.

Thank you Kristen for trusting me with your wedding, I loved carrying out your beautiful vision! Brides of Austin also did a small feature of this wedding in their latest issue which you can see here.
