I particularly loved designing, coordinating and producing this lovely wedding at Becker Vineyard in late October, bringing in my antique altar from New Orleans and wooden pedestals with heavy urns full of roses, lilies, and hydrangea as backdrop to the ceremony.  As storm clouds gathered, then quickly dissipated  (whew!) before the outdoor ceremony, the 30 mph winds in the meantime necessitated tying down the tall arrangements and tent staking the heavy oak pedestals to the ground,  but didn’t hamper the wonderful ceremony or celebration except for making the candlelight seem to glow all the more!  I visually tied the outdoor space together with the large garland that marked the tent entrance and echoed the winery hall door, accented with a simple coffee berry wreath. The winery personnel moved the chairs to the tables, while the guests had cocktails on the large back patio and the bride and groom took pictures in the vineyard.  The ceremony flowers we moved to the fireplace indoors among the food stations, photo booth and wedding cakes in the reception hall.  With flowered overhead chandeliers under the tent or in the trees, oak and gardenia wreathed iron lanterns or big wooden bowls of hydrangeas, garden roses, spider mums and fragrant rubrum lilies, they loved the rustic but elegant wedding we did for this lovely bride and her family deep in the heart of the Texas wine country. all photos with special thanks to Shannon Hanna
