Spring Wedding Inspiration // Rustic & Refined Garden Wedding

Spring Wedding Inspiration // Rustic & Refined Garden Wedding // by The Nouveau Romantics

We have some really beautiful weddings coming up this spring, and this rustic and refined spring wedding inspiration at The Wild Onion Ranch — inspired by muted blues and dusty pinks — is one we can’t wait for! The couple loves sophisticated simplicity, but what is so cool about them is that they wanted to incorporate a playful overlay inspired by South Austin. It’s truly been a blast incorporating those different elements together. We are always up for refreshing takes on pastel spring weddings!

Martha Stewart Top Wedding Planners in the US // The Nouveau Romantics // Austin & NYC

While we were out on holidays in December, we got wind that we’ve been featured by Martha Stewart Weddings magazine as one of the top Wedding Planners in the USA for 2014, amongst a laundry list of some of the biggest industry heavyweights! There are some names that I have respected and admired from afar, so to be considered among the same two-page spread is pretty incredible. [There was a solo dance party and high kicks in my office to celebrate.]

It made me reflect back on the community and camaraderie that I’ve found within the industry, and how much that has truly enriched my life over the last four years. My goal for 2015 is to really dig into expanding this idea of community — in the wedding industry, in the creative business world, and beyond.

Cheers to the rest of the incredible talent listed! And be sure to check out the full 20th Anniversary edition of the Martha Stewart Weddings magazine — it’s a good one!

Engagement Rings for Every Bride

Engagement Rings for Every Bride // by The Nouveau Romantics // Austin + NYC Wedding Planning and Event Design Studio

It’s tradition to set your love in stone. Though when it comes to choosing the one – your engagement ring, that is — we know that not every woman is the same. Whether you’re looking for a classic cut or something a little more unique, we’ve gathered a selection of the best pieces to suit the style of every soon-to-be-bride (and those aspiring future brides, too). Between these four styles, there is certainly a “yes” among them.


These are the delightful, unexpected pieces that more creative brides are looking for; they’re playful and fun, yet quite sophisticated at the same time, with mixed metals, art deco, and rough cuts popping up in the midst of the classic styles.
