Sweet Truffles & Even Sweeter Austin Wedding Vendors!

If you follow me on Facebook then you probably already saw the Sweet Truffle styled wedding that I shot with Posh Bridal Lounge last week for Valentine's Day. I love that Posh Bridal Lounge was crazy enough to go for the idea in the first place, but I love how great they were to work with even more!

So this post is here to say THANK YOU to all the Poshies and vendors that made it possible! We got our beautiful dress from Signature Bridal Salon down in Bee Cave. The owner, Ashley, made choosing our dress so easy and the space was just the sort of place you picture going to find your wedding gown! We're going to have to do a lot more shoots with them because there were so many dresses that I wanted to use!

Signature also provided the sweet bridesmaids' dresses and, if you didn't recognize it already, all of the jewelry came from Kendra Scott.

Okay, let's get a closer look at all the beautiful floral design from Shannon of The Willow & Vine.

Her floral design really brought everything together. I gave her very little to go on - just a "feel" that I was looking for and she totally delivered despite the fact that I asked for things that were not exactly easy to get in February!! All the vases and vessels you see are hers, too.

Do you notice the all the pretty backgrounds? They are part of the pretty scenery at Olive & June on 35th Street. You would never know that there's actually a Burger King right behind that bouquet in the top photo! Their walls and big oak trees make it feel like it's not in the middle of town! Their third story event space is so perfect, it makes me want to throw a big party! You're all invited!

Also in those photos are our pretty linens and place settings from Premiere Party Central. Their south location is right around the corner from my house, so it was so convenient for this shoot since I was toting a 6 month old along with me! I alotted 30 minutes for picking up linens and the place settings, just because I had no idea how long it would take them to check things out to me. Five minutes. We were there all of five minutes! They had everything ready. The longest part was double checking they had everything I needed.

Want to look as gorgeous as these girls on your (or your friend's) big day? Miss Brizy Tait at the Beauty Jar did hair and makeup for us - in record time, in fact!

Don't you loooove our cake topper?! I was so thrilled to find these at HelloPlumStudio on Etsy. I searched and searched for conversation heart cake toppers before I found these. These are the cutest ones out there. I promise.

Last but not least, our pretty little macarons. Thank you, Hello Macaron for these lovely little treats that added so much to our dessert table! I've made macarons, y'all. Let me tell you, if you want macarons at your wedding, do not try to DIY them. Buy the macarons. Worth it.

Of course, I couldn't have wrangled any of this without the girls at Posh! Thank y'all so much! I love your willingness to go above and beyond and all the little touches you brought to the shoot! And our dresses would've looked a little lackluster without the lovely models that came out to "play wedding" with us! Y'all were beautiful! And I really couldn't have managed it without my brother, who acted as "manny" for the day and held Sam while I worked!

Y'all are great. I love ya! Let's do it again!

God bless y'all!
