Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? Today’s bride, Lindsay, envisioned and brought to life a wedding that combined the soft charm of a vintage affair with the swankiness of a black-tie soirée. “Although I’ve lived in New York for almost a decade, I’m a Texan at my core, and I absolutely loved merging the vintage weddings that are so popular in Texas with the glam weddings that are so popular in New York,” Lindsay said. Working with a color palette of champagne gold, pale pink, and midnight blue, she created a chicly inviting ambiance at Texas’ Barton Creek Country Club that was enrichened by numerous personal touches, including homemade “Texas Trash,” hand-crocheted yarmulkes created by her groom’s grandmother, and a guestbook made out of fabric from her mother’s wedding dress. Photographer Shauna Autry, an Austin native, was on hand to capture every moment, and her fresh, fun, and vibrantly beautiful photos will brighten even the most dismal day.
From the Bride, Lindsay
As I started to plan the details of my wedding, I didn’t have a clear vision. I just started tagging beautiful photos on blogs, and my vision was born. I quickly came up with my color palette—blush pinks, champagnes, and golds. All the elements of the wedding, from the bridesmaid dresses to the frames we used for our place cards, were inspired by seeing other people’s beautiful weddings. I absolutely loved the soft, vintage weddings I saw all over the blogs, but I knew that I wanted a black-tie wedding, so I merged the two styles. We had soft flowers and midnight-blue bridesmaid dresses to get that vintage feel, but we added gold, silver, and a touch of crystal to add some glam. My mom and I added lots of personal details to make the wedding special—old family wedding photos, a guestbook made from my mother’s wedding dress, “I heart NY and TX” cookies, homemade “Texas Trash,” and local food and drinks in each gift bag to support the “Keep Austin Weird” mentality of my hometown. My husband’s grandmother even hand-crocheted all the yarmulkes for the traditional Jewish ceremony. My family is from Austin, Texas, and my husband’s family is from the New York area, so we wanted the wedding to reflect our two families becoming one. Jordan and I met in New York City, where we currently live. Although I’ve lived in New York for almost a decade, I’m a Texan at my core, and I absolutely loved merging the vintage weddings that are so popular in Texas with the glam weddings that are so popular in New York. The merging of these two styles really reflected the start of our new big family.
