Southern spring wedding at Hotel Ella

Southern spring wedding at Hotel Ella

Hotel Ella is a historic mansion turned hotel in the heart of Austin’s University of Texas.  The mansion serves as a gorgeous backdrop when the lawn is selected as the ceremony location.  The stately columns and multiple staircases lend itself to a perfect Southern wedding.  Add in a soft spring palette of soft blue and white blooms, and a modern vibe with a few garden elements and we’ve got a gorgeous Southern spring wedding and reception.

The Aisle.

This spring wedding featured one of the  most popular aisle decor trends of this spring wedding season. Lush floral gardens lining the perimeter of the aisle featuring a combination of larkspur, roses, delphinium and hydrangeas in a soft blue and white palette.  Although this is one of the more expensive aisle treatments, with the right timing, it can be repurposed to multiple places. These gardens were repurposed to both the bandstand facade and the cake table display.  Also, the four arrangements at the ceremony location were also repurposed to the dinner tables.  Remember there is a fee to keep team members available to move all of these components.  When it is  alot of items, it makes more sense than if it is only 2 or 3 items. Make sure to talk it out with the designer and planning team to help decide what is the best use of both time and money!

The Reception.

Inside the ballroom of Hotel Ella, this spring wedding featured both a mix of tall and low centerpieces.  The wedding planning team helped select a few key details- soft blue napkins, a custom monogrammed dancefloor and a classic, but modern wedding cake.  One of the things we  love about this ballroom, it is not the biggest or most overwhelming room to design, so  with the right amount of tall and low centerpieces, it fills like a luxurious Southern spring wedding!
