A Modern Look for the Historic Driskill

When we were asked to participate in The Driskill Wedding Experience, we decided to take this great opportunity to showcase a contemporary look at the oldest wedding venue in Austin!

We chose a color palette that complemented the existing décor: ivory, gold and eggplant. In the Driskill’s stunning mezzanine space, we paired high cocktail tables,and bistro tables with a long, family-style table set for dinner. We selected BBJ Linen’s “Contour” linen which has a modern, tonal pattern. Marquee Event Group provided gold chivari chairs that enhanced the look of the room and added a touch of drama!

Our florist, Merveille, created the entire reception look using only candles. This was a perfect opportunity to show that you really can create a stunning and upscale look with only candles. And it is budget friendly, to boot! Merveille hung acrylic boxes filled with pillar candles from the chandeliers, a great idea for venues with high ceilings. Mercury glass containers, silver candelabras and acrylic candlesticks gave the entire look a mixed metallic glow. This is a look you have likely seen featured in many wedding/décor magazines lately.

Lighting is the best way to transform a space and translate a vision, and ILIOS Lighting did this for us perfectly. We chose a purple shade to give the room a more modern feel. It also gives everyone a nice rosy glow.

Babycake Truffles provided the brides with a sweet treat and the ladies of Paper Place did all of our stationery. A huge thanks to all of our amazing vendors for making our vision come to life, and to Eclectic Images and SMS Photography for the amazing photography! Finally, thanks to our fantastic industry colleagues for participating in the event and coming together to transform this historic venue into something unique and special for the day. We had a blast!

Here’s to the Details!
