Peonies! Summer wedding, Pecan Springs Ranch Austin

Pecan Springs Ranch is a perfect setting for a summer wedding!

Peonies at Pecan Springs Ranch.

Peonies are one of our favorite blooms! They are a romantic, fragrant, and gorgeous bloom.  They are a perfect wedding bloom- available mostly in May and June- and then again, in November and December.  Their limited availability is one of their most special traits.

The Bride. ( and Groom)

Our summer bride has a deep love of peonies, and we were thrilled to bring as many as we could get our hands-on, full disclaimer, this bride is also on our design team, which makes this one even more special.  She joined our team newly engaged and already planning her summer ceremony and reception at Pecan Springs Ranch.

The Ceremony.

A soft palette of blush, white, and cream had been selected, which worked beautifully into the many varieties of peonies available during the summer.  Their ceremony took place in front of the outdoor fireplace- floral wreaths welcomed guests into the ceremony, while hobnail jars hung on the pews.  The aisle was carpeted with fresh petals of white and ivory.

An artist was in place to paint the ceremony in real-time

This was a gift from the bride’s parents.

The reception.

Cocktail hour had a few special guests- the infamous beer burros, Opie and Sassy! Of course, we outfitted them in fresh greenery garlands and flowers.  After refreshing cocktails, the reception moved inside. One of our first conversations about the wedding, was ” the thing”- what is the one “thing” that needed to be at the wedding? For Abby, it was a flower wall behind the sweetheart table! So, yes, there was an amazing flower wall filled with peonies, hydrangeas, and roses that were designed behind the sweetheart table.  We also created beautiful low floral centerpieces in custom black wooden boxes for all guest tables.  Take a look at some of the other fun details- Krispy Kreme trailer with tasty take-home favors, vintage getaway car with a flower wreath of course!

This will forever go down as one of our favorite flower festivals for one of our favorite couples 😉 Happy Anniversary!
