Southern Charm at Willow Ridge


by Swanee Browning

Willow Ridge Weddings and Events, the newest Hill Country venue, can accommodate all flavors of Texas Country, Rustic, or our choice for this shoot, Southern Charm.

The magic began when our models arrived early to meet Vixen Onsite Hair and Makeup. Take a look!



Our shoot was inspired by a gown we found at Celebrations Bridal and Prom. That was our beginning place and from there table settings, florals, and bridesmaid gowns followed.

The beautiful accessories our models are wearing are by Organic Bling by Lori. Each piece is hand crafted, so each is unique. Lori places emphasis on the quality of the raw materials she uses. She loves visiting with brides so she can create that one-of-a-kind accessory needed for their special day.

While our models were being pampered, Cat Haus Rentals and The Petal Artist were busy setting our stage! Thank you Comal Event Rentals for providing the perfect linens!

The invitations provided by Aly Am Paperie set the tone for our staged wedding, by creating an heirloom-quality keepsake that would be cherished by any couple for generations! Aly Am Paperie also included the perfect bar and menu cards.

The florals by The Petal Artist took center stage as centerpieces, our groom’s boutonniere, our bride’s bouquet as well as our ceremony site. The Petal Artist is located in Bulverde and services New Braunfels and the Hill Country.

Roar Over Texas is taking the local wedding industry by storm! They provide wonderful detail to any event. We thought that their five-foot marque letters should spell LOVE!

As the sun began to set, our couple and their attendees made their way to our ceremony site made ready by Cat Haus Rentals and The Petal Artist. Cat Haus Rentals has anything and everything from which a bride can choose! My mama always told me to pay attention to the details when creating, and that is exactly what Cat Haus Rentals does. The Petal Artist works in concert with other vendors to connect the dots!
