If you are a fan of vibrant details, you are going to love Ashley and Daniel’s wedding day! This couple dreamed of a modern and fun garden party, and their planner, Emily from Bird Dog Weddings, turned their vision into the most incredible day. This wedding was filled with beautiful colors, from a jaw-dropping ceremony arch to a tented reception covered in greenery.

When looking for a venue, the couple wanted a space that would allow for large tented areas and intimate lounges. The Four Seasons Austin was the winner! This venue marries luxury accommodations with beautiful views of Lady Bird Lake. It is the perfect space for couples who want an outdoor affair but want guests to enjoy everything Downtown Austin offers.

A Vibrant Ceremony at The Four Seasons Austin

When it came to the design, the ceremony space was a focal point of the whole wedding. Their ceremony space was set on the lush lawn of the Four Seasons, with views of the lake. To add color, Posey Events created a larger-than-life arch, covered in an endless array of ombre flowers in hues of yellow, blush, cream, and red. It was one of the most beautiful ceremonies I have ever photographed!

One of the highlights of the day was their dog, Ollie! He walked down the aisle in a tuxedo matching Daniel and was so cute! They had a custom cake topper made of him so that he could be part of the reception as well. 

A Reception Under Chandeliers and Greenery

After an incredible ceremony, guests headed to the cocktail hour on the veranda, where the sun started to set. To create a unique dining experience, the couple had two large clear tents set up on the lawn, with a mix of long tables and rounds. Cafe lighting mixed with bohemian chandeliers added a soft glow. The colorful flowers continued throughout the reception, with modern vases filled with lush flowers and greenery. The mix of roses, tulips, wildflowers, and daffodils made it feel like a spring garden.

The reception was held inside the foyer, where the Matchmaker band played all night long. Of course, the reception wouldn’t be complete without an incredible pop of color and flowers! They even had a large balloon installation on the ceiling, which was a unique focal point. Every little detail of this wedding was stunning and was such a joy to photograph! If you are planning a wedding or elopement in Austin, I would love to learn more! It is always an honor to photograph and capture beautiful love stories.
