Bringing the Beauty of Tuscany to this Hill Country Wedding

For this Bride, a wedding built around romantic, organic details was the plan from the very beginning and with a team of experts in tow, her and her love’s Hill Country celebration checked off every single one of those boxes. It’s an elegant, alfresco day designed by Wild Sky Events and draped in greenery and garden blooms by Petals, Ink. From the film by Brad & Monica to the images by Feather & Twine, prepare to get lost in the classic beauty of this Austin affair.

From the Bride… I have always been drawn to romantic, soft, and organic details, so I knew early on that I wanted a wedding that encompassed all of these aspects. For our venue, Will and I discovered Hotel Granduca and absolutely fell in love. The hotel is set in the gorgeous Texas Hill Country and has the most beautiful, Tuscany-inspired courtyard– perfect for the elegant but also relaxed feeling we were aiming for! On top of that, the team at Hotel Granduca are absolutely amazing and really put us at ease.

Because the venue was filled with striking Italian decor, we wanted to compliment the space with greenery elements and a soft color palette of light gray, cream, and pale blue. We were a little nervous about using pale blue as our accent color, but we were incredibly pleased once we saw the end result!

Will and I have THE BEST dog in the world, and we feel so lucky to have her in our life. Since our wedding was in Austin, and we were living in Philadelphia at the time, we could not bring her to celebrate with us. To fill the void and dedicate part of our day to her, we knew we wanted to do something that would show our guests how important our pup is to us. With the help of our wedding planner and an incredibly talented baker (Mindy’s Bakeshop!), we were able to get custom sugar cookies made to look just like our cute pup. The cookies were adorable, and our guests absolutely loved them as favors! It was definitely one of our most memorable moments from the night!

From Kate with Wild Sky Events… From our first design call I knew Jamie and Will’s wedding was going to be romantic, ethereal and lovely. Classic dove grey with a hint of periwinkle blue paired mixed metallics and lots candlelight is a winning combination. The goal was to create an alfresco reception under the stars and the patio at Hotel Granduca was perfect for this. Soft lighting, lush white and ivory florals and glowing lanterns set the scene for dinner and dancing. My favorite part of the night was Jamie and Will being announced on the grand staircase walking down to the romantic reception, with all of their friends clapping and cheering in excitement. The cake display table with 5 weddings cakes and macaroons was absolutely the centerpiece of the ballroom!
