{Real Wedding} Bonnie + Chris

I am beyond giddy to share this stunning wedding sent over from Al Gawlik Photography. When it comes to florals for my own wedding, I have been having a hard time finding an inspiration that really blows me away. Well, today I found it - Casa Linda Florals created beyond breathtaking floral arrangements for Bonnie and Chris' magical day. From the florals to the gorgeous venue and decor, I cannot get enough - a truly beautiful wedding! Congrats to the happy couple!

From the bride, Bonnie: As a girl I loved the children’s classic The Secret Garden. The theme of new life really spoke to both Chris and I, and we knew we wanted to experience this with our wedding. We found the venue of our dreams in Camp Lucy. Tucked away in the Texas Hill Country over Onion Creek in Dripping Springs was this wonderful property. The French Colonial chapel was brought over piece by piece from Vietnam and given new life. When we were looking at pictures of the property we came across a quote from the owner Mr. Whit Hanks that sealed the deal; “Camp Lucy was created to celebrate life, family, and new beginnings, whether it’s a re-purposed Amish barn originally built in the early 19th century or a French Colonial chapel from the other side of the world, giving new life and a new purpose to old buildings embodies that spirit.” We incorporated the beautiful trees on the property into our save the dates, invitations, and programs. We found on Etsy, tree stump personalized magnets that had our initials carved into it. We put those into bags that had some of our favorite quotes from the book shredded into thin slivers of paper. For our invitations we used an image of a tree and the image of our initials carved into the tree trunk.We were married in the French colonial chapel under a arch of grapevine with flowers suspend above us as we said our vows. It was magical. Our reception was in the old Amish barn on the property. All of our centerpieces were objects we had found that you would see in a garden. Our amazing florist gave life to these curious finds creating beautiful floral displays in each of the pieces.
