Fall Wedding in the Texas Hill Country - Nimitz Museum

This past October we had a wedding each weekend and no two were even remotely alike. Each bride and her family were so unique to work with and it made the fall really fun to see how each person had their vision come to life.
Lucky for me and my poor blogging skills, Style Me Pretty had been publishing a lot of our weddings lately so I can leave the blogging to them! Taadaaa. Thanks for saving the day SMP.

First up, we have Meredith and Andrew who had were married at the same church her parents were married in and had their reception at the same location her grandparents had, The Nimitz Museum. It's always fun when a wedding is a family affair and this was no exception - her father made the deals with the vendors, her mother kept busy with more projects than I could count and Meredith was right in the middle of managing it all, embarking on DIY projects and working full time as well as conducting a cross country job search and planning a post-honeymoon move to California. To say that young lady was amazing would be putting it lightly. She was rocking some crazy organization skills.

Meredith chose to go with an elegant fall harvest theme - complete with a wheat logo, wheat centerpieces and monogrammed beer steins of german wheat beer waiting for the guests upon their arrival. But that wasn't all. A stunning tent was decked out and with the help of Sprout flowers and the stage was set for a beautiful wedding followed by a dance-all-night party.

This wedding is a perfect example of how lighting can take an event to the next level. When you are working with a tented space, particularly a large tent like this 40' x 140' tent, it makes a huge difference to break up the large expanse of white. Lighting can be a great option. We also chose to light the floor of the untented courtyard with the same pattern so that when guests arrived the mood was set and the ground was covered in a warm welcoming light pattern. I was quite pleased with the overall effect.

From beginning to end, this wedding weekend was beautiful and most important it was fun. For more many many more of La Dolce Vita's fabulous images via Style Me Pretty click HERE.
