White wedding at Hotel Ella ( and a hint of blue!)

One of the luxuries of being a wedding designer in Austin, Texas is the diverse selection of venues.  For this classic wedding we headed to Central Christian Church and Hotel Ella. Both are conveniently located in our central downtown area.  Central Christian Church has a deep historical background in Austin,while Hotel Ella  is a recently renovated boutique hotel.

The church was kept simple and elegant with candles and greens.

The cocktail hour was ready for guests with a custom lighting in the downstairs courtyard.  The smilax draped stairs and veranda provided the perfect entrance to the reception.  The veranda featured multiple floral embellished boxwood walls.  This is one of the first events that we featured a vertical seating chart and now it is one of our favorite elements.  The ballroom was draped in blush fabric and featured a hint of chinoiserie vases.  All white flowers and foliages complemented the lush, floral filled reception.
