As the summer months come to a close in a lovely change of season, transitional wedding inspiration is in high demand and we have just the editorial for our winter-to-spring couples to set sights on. Designed and styled by Kristin Catter Events, fine art details and classic florals come together to create a nuptial look like no other that Reagan Wright Photography managed to capture so beautifully. A palette of ice blue beneath punchy pink peonies gives the illusion of winter fading to spring – the perfect transitional wedding color scheme. The Bloom Bar created tastefully placed floral installations all around The Woodbine Mansion where their cheerful palettes seemed to bring warmth indoors. A centerpiece of bright pink flowers frozen inside an incredible ice sculpture by Full Spectrum Ice Sculptures with the surrounded by the same live blooms made for a breathtaking focal point in the room, but we still couldn’t ignore the bite-sized brigadeiros from Bonjour Brigadeiro Handcrafted Chocolates & Treats dressed to the nines for the occasion and looking as delicious as ever. Tables, linens and seating from Marquee Event Rentals created the most intimate and mod reception vibes while place settings from Table Manners made each guest feel welcomed with a touch of luxury. There they could obsess over the Owl & Envelope paperie that announced what was on the menu and more in various spots and detail shots from this styled affair. Our bride models two different looks with gowns from Belle Saison Bridal accessorized with a stunning veil, and later a fresh floral belt for an extra touch of whimsy! Sunny Hair and Makeup went bold and beautiful with a half-up and scarlet lip combo for one look while keeping things fresh and dewy for the next with a low updo to pair with. Bring the luxe garden indoors as winter gives way to beautiful spring in this mansion wedding inspiration. Read on for a note from a few of the incredible vendors that brought this transitional wedding editorial to life. Cheers!

From planners Erica and Kristin with Kristin Catter Events: “We really wanted to merge the traditional bride with a modern twist of color and showcase that both can truly be timeless and classic. Our big focus was finding all aspects that could show that partnership; The Woodbine Mansion itself is a historic downtown Round Rock home converted to a modern-day venue and played a huge role in our overall inspiration. Because all things velvet have been having a serious moment, it was really important to have that fabric present, by adding linen with a dark grey velvet scroll print and softened with delicate pink napkins and dinner plates. It laid out the perfect classic color palette so our golds and vibrant pink details could truly shine and pop. It was extremely important to also show that whether you’re a modern bride with a sleek and clean form-fitting dress or a more traditional bride with a blush-toned ball gown you can still be both modern and traditional from your dress to hair and makeup and maybe even a floral belt for that extra pop. Being that the tradition of a wedding cake is being rewritten into an array of different desserts we really wanted to show that you can still make a BIG statement without a big cake. There’s literally no louder statement than bite-sized brigadeiros served around a beautiful centerpiece of bright pink flowers frozen inside ice with the same live flowers surrounding it, kind of like they’re frozen in time.”
From invitation designer Megan with Owl & Envelope: “This is a great invitation for the bride who wants a classic look with just a touch of personality. I kept the layout and main design of the invitation fairly traditional but added some fun touches throughout in the gold floral belly band, and the hint of pink on the outer envelope. My favorite part of this suite, though, would be the velvet envelope liner. I love using a non-paper material to bring texture and luxury to an invitation suite!”
