At long last, here is Heather and Tibaut’s ranch wedding as seen in the Spring 2014 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, and on Green Wedding Shoes. An amazing family, a gorgeous location, and a talented vendor team made this a wedding for the books. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to catch Shark Pig‘s video – it couldn’t be more perfect for H+T!

Despite overlapping in Austin, Texas due to mutual friends, Tibaut Bowman (one half of Autobody) and Heather Winn (a textile designer) didn’t connect until a rooftop party at the groom’s sister’s apartment in NYC years later. Their first date became the last concert of LCD Soundsystem in April of that same year, which is quite apropos for this music-loving and creative pair. Upon their engagement, it was Texas that these Brooklynites returned to when planning their wedding for April 2013. Set on the bride’s family ranch atop rolling hills in Dripping Springs, Texas, the couple set out to host a “bohemian black-tie” wedding filled with personal touches amidst family and friends.

Using Texas wildflowers as a starting point of their inspiration, a palette of muted pinks, lavenders, ochre, and peach complimented a base of black, white, wood tones, with touches of gold. Guests were welcomed into the property and ushered into the ceremony spot overlooking the rolling hills beyond. The bride walked down the aisle in a dress of her own making, along an aisle filled with wildflowers. Married by their good friend under a free-form arch created by 1500 stems of blooming cherry and pear branches—it was a setting that simultaneously complimented their natural surroundings as well as creating an intimate experience for themselves and their guests.
