Vintage Splendor

The beautiful, eclectic interior and magical outdoor ceremony site at Salado’s Chapel at Caliber Oak provided the perfect setting for this vintage-inspired shoot. Celebrations Event Rentals adorned guest tables in the main hall with linens in classic shades of ivory, peach, and muted sage. Gold beaded chargers paired perfectly with sparkling clear stemware. Rustic brown bottles housed greenery and fragrant, fresh blooms by Ivory Bell Floral. The bridal table was embellished with free-flowing smilax and an arrangement of white roses paired with fragrant stock and lilies in springy shades of orange, blush, and peach. Antique brass candlesticks were used on the mantle to complete the look of this dreamy indoor atmosphere, photographed perfectly by Carmen J. Williams Photography. 

Horton House Studio added an element of timeless sophistication with a beautifully handwritten stationery set and expertly crafted name cards. 


Our beautiful bride absolutely stunned in an embroidered, v-neck dress from Pat’s Gowns. The fitted bodice and sweeping train added drama while the peachy champagne underlay tied in perfectly with the vintage aesthetic of the shoot. An understated, neutral makeup palette was chosen by La Bella Salon and Beauty Lounge, while the bride’s hair was pulled back into a voluminous up-do with loose, flowing curls.  


Outside, the perfectly-designed cake by Simply Delicious Bakery was on immaculate display. The smooth texture of the cake was complimented by marbled peach buttercream and deckle-edged tiers. The extraordinary balloon display by Waco Balloon Co added an element of whimsy, with dozens of sage, peach, and ivory balloons arranged perfectly on the gold, circular arch. 


Our wonderful photographer did the breathtaking ceremony site justice, capturing the serene beauty of the trees, hanging chandeliers, and of course the rustic archway provided by Celebrations Event Rentals.  


This timelessly stunning shoot was made even more so with one final, dramatic detail – a 1973 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham d’Elegance, courtesy of venue owner Rick Thomssen.
