October in Review

Happy Friday! Caitlin here with a round-up of sorts. October really flew by, huh? Halloween was fun, but we are just excited that as of today, we can listen to Christmas music without feeling TOO silly. Liz already bought egg nog, too. She’s on top of things.

We apologize for being so silent lately, but October really was a whirlwind. You may remember Liz’s post at the beginning of the month when she mentioned NYC Bridal Fashion Week, as well as another Camille Styles book photo shoot. As soon as that was over the prep began for our October 19th wedding at Brazos Hall in downtown Austin. McKenzie Powell joined us all the way from Seattle to help with flowers and styling. That girl has got some talent!Flower Preparation // The Nouveau Romantics // Austin Wedding Planning and Event Design Studio Read More

Fall Wedding Season | Weekend Recap

Fall Wedding at Barr Mansion // Bridal Bouquet by The Nouveau RomanticsFall wedding season: we’re smack in the middle of it! We just wrapped up another weekend at Barr Mansion that featured beautiful ombré florals, romantic flickering candlelight, and some of fall’s most bountiful fruit. Aren’t those little figs just adorable?

Now we are back at work, busy finishing up some details for our next wedding on October 19th at Brazos Hall in downtown Austin. I have a feeling there will be some Instagrams from the marathon carnation garland making party we’re having next week. Stay updated by following us!

We survived a busy weekend that saw a double header, a monster rain storm, and plenty of logistics to keep us on our toes. A Friday wedding with Mayhar Design at Barr Mansion had us installing wedding flowers in a deep and dramatic palette of berry pinks, deep plums, and vibrant reds — I loved how this turned out, and it felt like the perfect way to usher in the fall season.

Saturday saw our good friends Laine and Devin tie the knot at Vuka Co-op, a co-working / warehouse space in South Austin. We collaborated with Laine (a fellow architect) on the event design and helped her along with all the wedding planning stages. Keeping the flowers to a minimum to be as cost effective as possible, we piled on pillar candles along long white tables, with the bride’s menu design atop an all-white place setting, and crisp black ribbon. Her flowers, however, saw deep plums, ochre, copper, combined with greenery, whites, caramel, and butter yellow. Tied with the always perfect (it is) black and white ribbon …. I was a big fan.

Needless to say, these instagram images don’t really show the real deal. We’ll let you know when the final photography comes around!

Studio Tour by Belathée Photography

While in town to shoot Christen and Charlie’s San Antonio wedding, Dorothée from Belathee Photography popped over for a studio tour. We were arm-deep in flowers, decor, and ever-present puppies, and she still managed to make the studio look airy and beautiful. This is a pretty accurate picture of the studio on the week of a wedding. As always, I love Dorothee’s perspective on something that we just see as every day!
