If you love European-inspired designs as much as we do, you’ll fall head-over-heels for this colorful summertime chinoiserie scene at Ma Maison in Dripping Springs! A quaint Hill Country setting with sunlight pouring through the trees set the tone for this elegant and bright styled shoot put together by Middleton Events and Mint Photography. The bright florals and bold chinoiserie pieces add character to the entire scene and pair beautifully with the vintage rentals and velvet textures with blush, mauve and gold as accent tones. Each place setting is saturated and inviting, with layered chinoiserie pieces, blue mercury glass and florals overflowing across the table. We love how the team not only brought in freestanding florals, but used the natural elements around Ma Maison for installs, like the beautiful oak trees flanking the ceremony site. A whimsical cake with pops of blush and a lounge area beneath the trees make this scene extra inviting. We hope it inspires you to embrace bold patterns and bold colors for your wedding day – they can both be done beautifully!

Anna and Kolton’s love is on FIRE in this Spanish casita engagement session from Nikk Nguyen Photography. From the unique, artful interiors to the vintage, romantic vibes outside on the poolside patio, every corner of Casa Cartel in Austin is a beauty and serves as the perfect backdrop to showcase Anna and Kolton’s sweet romance. We love the couple’s hip, modern outfits in neutral shades and how they fit the setting – definitely something to think about as you’re choosing outfits for photos! Anna’s bouquet is a stunner in various shades of ivory and peach: the perfect complement to the Spanish and southwestern vibes of the venue. This couple’s story is super cute, and we love how the groom pulled off a sweet surprise when he popped the question. Scroll down to read! Cheers!

From the bride on how they met and how he proposed: “We met at Shoal Creek in Austin via mutual friends. Kolton is from Baton Rouge, so meeting over crawfish was kind of romantic! He proposed by the 360 bridge, playing fetch with our border collie, right before we left for Spain and Portugal for my birthday trip. He totally surprised me  because I thought he was going to propose in Europe. It was very intimate and private on a Saturday by the 360 Bridge. We celebrated in Europe as a newly engaged couple.”

Most jewelry stores define a ‘custom ring’ as choosing a diamond and a mounting. Some even allow you to alter prefabricated pieces slightly. At Kirk Root Designs, their philosophy is simple; they believe each client should have the experience and options that are the best for them individually.

To Kirk Root Designs, custom means the product and experience should be both explicitly tailored to you. With a high level of education and expertise in the industry at your fingertips, you will decide together on the best way to create your perfect piece of jewelry – even if that means creating something that currently only exists in your imagination. If you’re seeking something one of a kind, Kirk Root Designs has the resources to bring your ideas to life. Create your custom ring locally or with artisans in leading jewelry houses nationwide.
