Erica and Evan wanted their Big Apple guests to get a taste of Texas—the perfect blend of hip and hoedown, says the bride—so they chose the coolest city in the state, and got to work planning their wedding weekend at Hotel Saint Cecilia and Barr Mansion & Artisan Ballroom in Austin. These romantic photos from The Nichols captured an outdoor ceremony that kept the vibe casual. Colorful bridesmaids dresses in a variety of styles added a fun counterpoint to Erica’s classic Carolina Herrera gown—a sleeveless silhouette with a gorgeous lace overlay that’s both elegant and Southern. The bouquets and arrangements from Rosehip Flora featured all air plants and succulents that complemented the couple’s simple taste. We love the touch of color from the roses on the chuppah! Flickering candles lightened the rustic details at the reception, but what really caught our eye is the fabulous cake from New York’s Momofuku Milk Bar, layered with funfetti birthday cake just for the groom. So sweet!
