The Texas Hill Country has drawn a lot of attention for the exquisite weddings that take place there. Dripping Springs, which boasts being the Wedding Capital of Texas, has at its doorstep one of the most elegant venues in the Austin area. Ma Maison opened its doors only a few years ago, but has made a formidable mark as a unique and elegant location for brides. Jaclyn and Dustin hosted a lush garden wedding there several months back that we were privileged enough to participate in.
How we created the look.
This wedding was so visually stunning that a lot of our focus was to accentuate rather than to create a focal point. Cascading florals dotted the main table, while more compact, but no less impressive, arrangements flanked either side. To make sure that all of this artistry wasn’t lost once toasts were made and dancing ensued, we pin-spotted each table heavily so that the lush appeal wasn’t lost. Similarly, We highlighted the cakes with wash lights so that they remained a visual point of interest. Since the couple hired a band, Our high-impact lighting was kept to uplights in a sot purple that complimented some of the warmer tones in the floral arrangements. We also did a monogrammed custom gobo that featured the newlyweds initials.
Ma Maison is a venue that we love working at because it has a lot of architectural interest, but still allows for plenty of unique personal touches. We are always excited to work with their staff for event and venue lighting as well as being a preferred wedding DJ. Happy planning!
