Wedding Faves – Allan House Reception

In Austin, we absolutely love our outdoor celebrations throughout the year. After all, on many weekends we’re looking at temperatures in the 70s, blue skies, and gorgeous breezes; and a recent wedding that we did was no exception. We were fortunate enough to be able to work at one of our favorite venues, The Allan House – an intimate wedding space amidst elegant Victorian surroundings.

Our bride and groom wanted seasonal flowers to set their tone of outdoor garden elegance which was reflected in everything from the personal flowers to the reception flowers.

What began as an intimate ceremony space was transformed into a beautiful dining space, complete with soft peach linen draping, ivory lace overlay, and matching chair sashes. We created an eclectic and elegant centerpiece design that complemented the wedding colors and supported the overall tone of the wedding. Some tables featured a mixed collection of vintage milk glass with seasonal blooms – including garden roses, peonies, and stock – in shades of blush, peach, and ivory.


Other tables featured bird cages overflowing with seasonal garden flowers, setting the scene for garden romance.


 Finally, taking advantage of the natural beauty of The Allan House, the rock walls around the courtyard were lined with mason jars and assorted sizes of pillar candles, creating an outdoor glow of romance.


As always, we loved working at The Allan House – and, of course, with our awesome bride and groom. It was a beautiful weekend and a reception we’ll never forget!
