Lauren + Russ brightened the pages of V3 with their regal purple wedding at Austin’s famed Barr Mansion. (Fun fact: purple just so happens to be one of my all-time favorite wedding colors!) Leigh Miller photographed the intimate outdoor ceremony, and Wendee Sawran of Lucie’s Events lent her planning expertise to the 90-guest event. Lauren’s ladies wore flattering charcoal brown frocks (Dessy) and carried jewel-colored blooms from Melanie Tipton and her team at Last Petal.
The sweetest thing about this shoot? Nope, not the heart-shaped strawberries, not the pom pom chandelier, and not the gorgeously vintage-y bouquet and bouquet wrap (though those are all sweet!). The sweetest thing about this shoot? It was designed and orchestrated by a pair of best friends, Jenny Khachaturian and Cassie Schott. What could be more perfect for Valentine’s Day, a day for celebrating love of all stripes?
Jenny of Paper Blvd Design took care of the stationery, Striking Stems, the bouquet, and Tree Vaello, the hair and makeup. Cassie Schott photographed everything to perfection, including the adorable “love potion” cocktails! That dress? Vera Wang, of course, from Milad Bridal Boutique… and what could be sweeter?
