Right off the river just minutes from downtown Austin lies a stunning venue, Laguna Gloria. Hard to believe that this stunning space is just outside the hustle and bustle yet still so close to downtown! This venue is a hidden gem. Chelsea and Justin are the incredible couple we had the joy of working with at this stunning space, and they totally nailed it when deciding to have their wedding at Laguna Gloria! We absolutely adore Chelsea and Justin and knew that their wedding day was going to be spectacular from the moment we met.
Anytime our couples work with talented wedding planners it makes the overall wedding planning experience better for everyone involved. Chelsea and Justin happened to choose one of our all-time favorite wedding planners, Carissa of Momentous Wed, and it made for such a wonderful planning process! We all began discussing the floral vision for the wedding day and Chelsea and Justin settled on four key words: classic, romantic, modern, and organic. With Laguna Gloria as their venue it was going to be easy. This space captures one of our favorite vibes — European French Garden. It’s romantic, timeless, and oh so sweet! Our couple knew they wanted their wedding day to feel authentic, full of love, and peaceful.
Chelsea’s Bridal Bouquet
It wasn’t hard to turn this venue into a breathtaking wedding, in fact, they could have said I Do right in front of the river without any flowers and decor and it STILL would have been a beautiful day. But luckily for us, Chelsea and Justin wanted aaaalllll the flowers to elevate their wedding day. We started out with a neutral color palette using toffee, cream, beige, and sand colored blooms, then we leaned into a laid-back bohemian vibe. It was perfect! Then to create a solid combination of modern and organic we designed all of the floral with asymmetry and “freshly picked” feels. We wanted Chelsea’s bouquet to feel as though she had just gathered the flowers herself. We picked the best toffee and quicksand roses for her and added in just a few sprigs of greenery to incorporate softness and movement. We wanted all of those dreamy fluffy roses to be the focal point!
Ceremony Floral Design
For their ceremony design, Chelsea and Justin wanted something romantic and real. By leaning into the idea of a very natural design we were able to come up with a statement floral installation alongside Carissa with Momentous Wed. Together, we came up with a triangle ceremony altar and knew it would be the perfect place to incorporate pampas grass. Honestly, the set up for this wedding was a little stressful, there was a high chance of rain on this day and the entire ceremony and reception was planned outside. Thankfully, it only rained during set up!!! Pampas grass and rain don’t mix well, so we were sooooo relieved. Chelsea and Justin were left with a stunning wedding day!
Modern, Organic Reception
Their reception took place underneath a twinkle-light-lined tent with a long community table. It felt so warm and welcoming! Simplistic modern tableware dressed up the dinner tables while minimal flowers were sprinkled down the table. After a wonderful dinner Chelsea, Justin and their guests headed over to a larger tent to celebrate. A spectacular band performed through the night and everyone had the best time! It was so much fun watching the party continue throughout the night and watching their sweet send-off filled us with so much joy.
Chelsea and Justin, we absolutely adore you! You have such amazing taste, so much love, and are just the best. We can’t wait to see how your love story continues!
