Weddings to Celebrate: Megan & Josh

This wedding was an absolute blast to plan and design. Megan (and her sister!) have a keen sense of style, and they wanted the wedding and rehearsal dinner to be one of a kind. The theme for both events was "rustic elegance and glamour." Think sequins, chandeliers and mirrored tables at Camp Lucy. They weren't afraid to use bright, bold colors, and lots of texture. They chose a gorgeous palate of peacock green, soft pink and green and metallics for the rehearsal dinner, and rich jewel tones for the wedding--red, purple, green, and goldenrod. Sue at Alamo Plants and Petals out of San Antonio did an amazing job on the floral design. It was truly outstanding (as you'll see below!).

One of my favorite aspects was how we incorporated things that the groom Josh loved. He is a huge hunter and fisherman, so we wanted to include elements of that somehow. We chose to use antlers in the decor in several ways: as accents on the rehearsal dinner tables, in a custom-designed monogram for the dance floor at the wedding and with the most gorgeous and special antler chandelier we brought in for the events hall. We also chose a game-centered menu from Crave Catering, that included yummy bites like antelope carpaccio and bison sliders. And of course, the groom's cake!

Megan was a gorgeous bride--one of my favorite dresses ever! And I loved that she changed her hairstyle between ceremony and reception (and her shoes!).

Weddings to Celebrate: Sara & Rico, Camp Lucy

Sara and Rico. These two are special friends of mine, so it was such an honor to be a part of their wedding. I confess that I have been going through wedding convo/Pinteresting sessions withdrawal. We had so much fun!

They got married in July at Camp Lucy, one of my favorite venues. Sara wanted to blend their two backgrounds, so cocktail hour had a decidedly Mexican flair, a nod to Rico's heritage. There was custom-made papel picado hung from the rafters, empanadas and smoked tuna tostada appetizers, a refreshing margarita and Mariachis.

Once you stepped into the event hall (made with beams from an Amish barn, by the way, gotta love the details at Camp Lucy!) Sara's English heritage took over, with an English garden feeling in a gorgeous palette of greens and soft pinks, with touches of yummy-smelling lavender. As a fun way to bring in Rico's heritage to another part of the evening, they had a sopapilla bar, with freshly made sopapillas and yummy toppings like honey, whipped cream, hot fudge and strawberries. Everything turned out beautifully, even with a little rain, all because of a fabulous team of vendors--see the full list below.

Love you two, thank you for letting me share in your day. Many, many happy days ahead!
xo, Katie

Weddings to Celebrate :: Meredith and Todd at Camp Lucy (part 1)

Ahh I can't wait to tell you about Meredith and Todd - quite possibly the sweetest people ever. But I'll save it for when I can show you some pictures.

Today, enjoy their short film, by Waterloo Films. He took only two weeks to make this - impressive!

 Congratulations Meredith and Todd!

Camp Lucy

Last week, Lorena and I had the privilege of visiting Camp Lucy. Lorena featured this venue before on this blog, and there's been lots of talk about Camp Lucy throughout the wedding industry. Now that I've seen it first hand, I can vouch that Camp Lucy is worth the hype!

This venue is gorgeous. The owner bought a Vietnamese church and then disassembled and shipped it to the Texas hill country where it was reconstructed in gorgeous splendor. I was so glad to bump into photographer Matt Johnson there, as my iPhone camera just didn't do the venue justice (maybe one day, when I get the 4G, but I digress...).

Camp Lucy is hosting its first professional wedding next month - it has previously hosted two weddings for family members. So excited for Lorena to coordinate Brittney's wedding at Camp Lucy this December!
Here are some of Matt's shots - check out his blog for more:

Love this cottage - the Bride's House.

Main room of Bride's House

Restroom of Bride's House

Amazing chapel. The pavilion is almost identical, but with open sides.

The Camp Lucy heart logo is found throughout the property.

We're excited to coordinate many weddings at Camp Lucy. :)
