Eco-Friendly Barr Mansion Wildflower Wedding Inspiration / Austin Wedding Photography / by Melanie Grizzel

She N He Wildflower Invitation Design

Working in tandem, Barr Mansion, Margaret of Three Apples Event, Leah of Zinnia and Co.,  Steve of HeDesign (for invitations) and I came up with this eco-friendly wildflower fete.

The idea first evolved in a creative meeting with Margaret, Leah and I. We wanted to create three unique looks for three distinctive style shoots. We did all three in the same day starting with The Tea Party at the Inn at Wild Rose Hall, from there the smokey lounge atmosphere of the Vista at Seward Hill and lastly, the bright and airy, eco-friendly shindig at Barr Mansion!

We wanted to follow in the low carbon footprints of Barr Mansion. They take great pride in their organic certification: all the food and cakes prepared by the staff at Barr Mansion are certified organic. They also often use spices from the garden on the grounds, therefore they boast the largest organic ornamental garden in the country. Leah sources all of the wildflowers and budding basil from local flower markets saving emissions and the environment. All of the flower vessels are found and re-used containers. Margaret and myself scoured local thrift stores for creatively mismatched glassware, china and flatware. We even found a charming red cake stand with hearts all over it, perfect for our re-use style shoot.  Margaret found the Marilyn-style halter dress and the yellow heels - they had some trouble but only cost seven bucks! We removed the trouble areas from the shoes and added buttons in the color of the other accessories, perfect!

Do you want to host a delightful soiree and not leave much behind?  Take a tip or two from Delilah's spring time nuptials.

This shoot was also featured on Style Me Pretty!
