So this is what the Texas Hill Country looks like in January—it has its own unique beauty and proved to be the perfect backdrop for Molly and Kirk's wedding. Molly, a native Texan, works on a sustainable farm and Kirk is a dog sled trainer from Canada. It all came together when I asked Molly why she had chosen Prospect House as her venue. Her face lit up as she described the reclaimed prairie that serves as the beautiful backdrop for this unique space.
We decided to let the prairie be the focal point for the ceremony as it is seen through the steel frame that serves as a backdrop for outdoor weddings—adding native grasses in simple wood planters to tie in with the scene.
Molly's bouquet was meant to mimic the wildness of the prairie with some lush flowers to top it off. And thankfully hellebores were in season so they made the perfect boutonnieres.
The bridesmaids' bouquets were kept simple with tied bundles of grasses.
Indoors we carried on with the idea of simplicity allowing the incredible venue to shine with a few impact pieces—a lush arrangement at the welcome table, seasonal grasses filling the small vials on the wall and the incredible focal point in the main hall—a wheel that is actually the base of a weathervane on the top of the building. And, yes, it was a windy day allowing for great excitement and acrobatics from our installation team!
