Google+ Real Texas Wedding: Heidi + Ryan, Part II - Southern Weddings

Southern Weddings

We’re ending the week with a little more eye candy from Heidi + Ryan’s Texas soiree, courtesy of Phose Photography.  Inspired by the opulent court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, Heidi + Ryan’s French wedding (planned and designed by Jane Salos) brings high drama a lovely sophistication to the deep South that’s a bit different from your average barnyard shindig (though you know how much we love those, too!).  We’re still swooning over the garden portraits of the happy couple and the expansive infinity pool around which friends and family gathered to toast the newlyweds.  Tres chic, if I do say so myself!

Describe your wedding flowers:  For my wedding flowers, I used Lady Slipper orchids, white and green roses, white hydrangeas, hanging mossy tendrils and feathers.
Describe your wedding cake:
  The wedding cake was four tiers anddecorated with fresh flowers and filigree accents.  We chose an orange blossom cake with bourbon caramel cream frosting.  Needless to say, there weren’t any leftovers! 
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding?
  Communicating the vision I had in my mind was quite difficult.  None of my vendors had ever produced this type of French-inspired wedding.  there were many “firsts” in my wedding!
Were there any wedding traditions or new ideas you included in the wedding?
  We excluded several traditions, like the bouquet toss and garter throw.  Instead, I made a toast and gave a special bouquet to someone who means very much to me. 

Congratulations, Heidi + Ryan!  We l.o.v.ed. your French-inspired Southern wedding!
