This beautiful sunset wedding took place at a family ranch in Dripping Springs, Texas. The bride's colors were chocolate and pinks, and the ceremony and reception took place outdoors.
The ceremony was held on the front porch, which was adorned with white hanging lanterns spilling pink and white flowers, including Hill Country lisianthus, hydrangea, Peruvian lilies, pale pink and fuschia roses, and porch post arrangements of the same flowers with trailing ivy. The ceremony area was marked by two large phoenix arrangements of curly willow, pale pink larkspur, white hydrangea, and Orlando roses. The entrance to the aisle was marked by jelly jars filled with fluffy white hydrangea. All of the ceremony flowers were able to be transported to the reception area.
The wedding party carried bouquets in a spectrum of pinks and ivories.
The bride carried a large, hand-tied arrangement of ivory hydrangea, cream and pink Peruvian lily, pale pink and bright pink roses, bold pink calla lilies, and light pink sweet pea and Hill Country lisianthus.
Her custom French wrap was accented with shimmery sheer ivory ribbon and crystal pins
The bridesmaids, who wore short chocolate strapless dresses, carried hand-tied bouquets of ivory hydrangea, pale pink and bright pink roses, light pink lisianthus, and white Peruvian lilies. Their bouquets were wrapped with fuschia satin and featured a satin ribbon "collar" fastened with pearl pins.
The junior bridesmaids, who also wore chocolate, carried nosegays of pale pink roses and ranunculus with a sheer light pink French wrap with trailing ribbons and crystal accents.
The groom wore a simple ivory calla lily boutonniere with pink and brown sedum accents. The groomsmen and fathers wore ivory roses with sedum accents.
Corsages for mothers and grandmothers were composed of ivory or pale pink roses with sedum, bouvardia, and ribbon accents.
The reception, which took place under a canopy of live oaks filled with white paper lanterns, featured three different centerpiece options: glass cubes wrapped in pale pink satin ribbon and filled with ivory hydrangea, a mix of pink roses, creamy Peruvian lilies, Italian ruscus, pink and brown sedum, and a mix of pink gerbera daisies; low bowls with floating candles and light pink and bright pink miniature gerbera daisies; and pedestal hurricanes with ivory pillar candles nested on a base of English ivy and Peruvian lily and miniature gerbera accents.
