This lush, colorful French garden inspired styled shoot comes to us from Hyde Park Photography, based in Austin, TX! Here’s Hyde Park Photography to tell us more:

Old world style. French inspired. Comfortable elegance. Words that convey an ambiance of warmth and comfort, yet a classy elegance. This is the inspiration behind Thistlewood Manor, an elegant wedding venue just south of Austin, Texas. It was this same ambiance we wanted to capture in this shoot, using some of those rich colors and textures of the season. It is such a lovely time full of color, wonderful weather and happy moments – a perfect time for a gathering of family and friends for a loved one’s wedding.

See more after the cut!

Of course, good food is always a big part of any gathering, and who does not love a beautiful table full of delightful cheeses, meats, fruits and more. And don’t forget the wine to encourage the good cheer and good taste. While most of the decor is part of the onsite inventory along with the labor of love with the florals, the sage crinkle table linen and eggplant damask napkins provided the perfect base for the striking tablescape. Thistlewood Manor teams up to create beautiful events for their brides from the stunning flowers and decor to the delectable catering.

Passionate about working with brides, they listen to their bride’s dreams and work diligently to help them bring it into being. Featuring the venue’s growing courtyard of gorgeous gardens here, a ceremony scene is showcased with a unique ring of flowers under the swaying trees. Hanging candelabras add another element of elegance while the bride in the swing delicately entwined with star jasmine completes the fun with a bit of whimsy. Her European inspired gown, covered in delicate lace fits wonderfully into this charming scene. The final treat was a delicious cake that captured this seasonal theme with not only the colors, but with the trending crackle texture.
