It was an intimate and lively celebration this Thursday.   With the sound of live bluegrass music in the air, surrounded by a mini-wonderland of rustic, vintage and kid-friendly charm, Lisa and Adam wed at Rio Cibolo Ranch, along side their 3 year old daughter, Layla, and 10 month old son, Judah.

Lisa contacted me several months ago about designing, coordinating and shooting her elopement.  She found Bethany+Brandon’s backyard elopement and loved the details and intimacy of the celebration.  She selected her colors -teal, magenta and grey- and I designed the rest, creating a kid-friendly environment that spoke to her heart.

Lisa wanted to surprise Adam with live Bluegrass music (his favorite) and I found The Siekers, a wonderful husband-wife duo from the Austin area.  They brought the perfect touch to the celebration!  I highly recommend live music, even for a small event.  It truly makes all the difference, and I would recommend Rolf and Beate Sieker in a heartbeat.

I created a picnic area just for Miss Layla, complete with a coloring set up and room for her to enjoy the edible delights.

Instead of fresh flowers for her, I create a floral ribbon wand.  It was a smash hit!

The dessert table featuring a cutting-sized cake, petit fours and custom cookies from Paige’s Bakehouse.  I absolutely loved each creation -though the adorable owl cookies were my favorite!

Cake toppers are so fun to make!  The “Love” pendant cake topper I created with thread, scrapbooking paper, cardstock, rubber stamps and thin dowel rods.  So easy to customize and such fun to make for any occasion!

A tea sandwich/picnic theme for the nibbles included scalloped edge bread for PB&Js, homemade chicken salad sandwiches and a delightful fruit spread.

As Lisa and Layla made their way to the altar, The Siekers played “Something” by The Beatles.  So, so perfect.

Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she woos me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Somewhere in her smile she knows
That I don’t need no other lover
Something in her style that shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

You’re asking me, will my love grow?
I don’t know, I don’t know
You stick around now it may show
I don’t know, I don’t know

Something in the way she knows
And all I have to do is think of her
Something in the things she shows me
I don’t want to leave her now
You know I believe and how

Scott Cole of Short and Sweet Weddings based in Round Rock officiated, creating a meaningful and intimate ceremony with Lisa and Adam.

Layla is ready to get down to business.

The pinwheels on the tea sandwiches were fun for all ages!  A neat treat I found at Hobby Lobby.

Playing with textures and hues, I kept Lisa’s bouquet romantic with a proper dose of off-white and hints of her colors, teal and magenta. She added a very special bee brooch that belonged to her grandmother and it was the perfect finishing touch!

Her cuteness was AMAZING!  I adored getting to celebrate with this lovely family!

I believe she shared a couple cake pops, but she claimed the rest.  Big fan, big fan.

THE CUTEST baby wedding outfit I’ve seen yet.  That little driver’s cap -simple adorable!

She never wanted to leave her special area -which is the biggest compliment I could receive.

Dancing to the fine bluegrass tunes.

Lisa chose an almond cake with buttercream frosting -perfectly beautiful AND delicious!

Citrus ice water -this was Layla’s favorite station, making sure everyone stayed hydrated.  The spout is quite entertaining, even if you’re not 3 🙂

An Autumn Night.

Lisa and Adam had their first dance to a lovely country tune.

Petit fours are individual sized cakes beautifully decorated.  They are fabulous -not just because of their aesthetic appeal, but because they are so moist and yummy scrummy!  Paige’s Bakehouse has a plethora of flavors and can even do custom combinations.  They’re amazing..

If you’re planning a small wedding or elopement, a 6″ cake is perfect, especially if you have a dessert table.  It’s excellent for your cake cutting and you can take it back home and freeze it just like a traditional wedding cake.

Congratulations, Lisa and Adam!  You have such a beautiful and precious little family and it was beyond a delight getting to create this celebration with you!  May this new chapter in your lives be rich with adventure, joy, precious moments and too many wonderful memories to keep track of!  Blessings upon blessings to you!
