Thanksgiving Cocktails from Royal Fig


If you’re anything like us, you like to save the best for last.  We’ve planned out our dinner menus, tweaked our decor, and given our dogs a pep talk on acceptable Thanksgiving behavior (no turkey thievery allowed!).  Now, for the cocktails.  Royal Fig provided the delicious Saucy Fig cocktails above for our recent shoot with Brides of Austin and graciously share the recipe below:

Saucy Fig

2 oz. Buorbon (we like Bulleit)

2 oz. Fresh Fig Puree (or store bought fig jam)

2 oz. White Grape Juice

.5 oz. Lemon Juice

2 oz. Still Water

Garnish with Sliced Fresh Figs

Sip and Enjoy!

Paolo Sebastian | Designers We Love

Paolo Sebastian designer profiled by The Nouveau Romantics

Season after season, Paolo Sebastian designer Paul Vasileff seems to strike an effortless balance between classic and unique.  Hailing from South Australia, Vasileff launched his first collection in 2007 and quickly became one of the most captivating designers in the industry.  Glamorous couture gowns reminiscent of old Hollywood would be enough to get our hearts beating fast, but add ethereal details, delicate boning, and hand sewn appliqué to the mix and we’re taken to a place beyond our wildest bridal gown dreams.

Staying true to the couture moniker, Vasileff consults with each client and offers one-on-one fittings for every handcrafted piece, making for a truly personal and, dare we say, enchanting experience.

Autumn Hill Country Wedding

When Caitlin and Brandon came to us looking for an Autumn Hill Country wedding in Fredericksburg, Texas with deep, rich earth tones and hints of vintage decor, we knew it was a perfect match.  From the bridal bouquet bursting with shades of red and burnt orange to the kilim rugs we laid out for her to walk down the aisle on, it was a visual story of abundant romance.

Check out our feature on Green Wedding Shoes for details on the dress and what Caitlin says was the biggest component of her wedding day.
