SETTING THE SCENE: Le San Michele is a unique custom-built limestone two-story house in the style of a vintage Mediterranean farmhouse with beautiful gardens. Located in Texas Hill Country, the gorgeous venue is about 20 minutes south of Austin. Megan and Mike loved the large gardens and outdoor space.
NATURAL SOUTHWESTERN: Natural, relaxed, bohemian and southwestern elements were incorporated into the wedding theme. The beautiful venue paired with the natural elements created a lovely day. Sunset tones of blush, peach, coral, orange, hot pinks and navy complemented the nuptials.
THE GOWN: Megan wore a gorgeous structured bustier gown with hip yoke and floral applique detail that showed off a beautiful formfitting silhouette. The draped lace skirt, full train, and off-the-shoulder sleeves added to the lovely gown. She wore rings by Unearthen to complement her stunning Odette and Erica Weiner engagement ring.
BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS: The gorgeous, large and loose bouquet had a wild shape that featured succulents and bold hues. The florals were a stunning touch to the ceremony.
DELICIOUS DISHES: The amazing meal was provided by The Peached Tortilla, who catered classic street food with an Asian and southern flair.
SPECIAL TOUCHES: Creating signature touches on their special day, Megan and Mike had a cute lounge area provided by Loot Vintage Rentals and beautiful floral arrangements from Rosehip Flora.
