Fischer, Texas was a very fitting small-town location for Christy and Jon's spring wedding this past April, as Christy's parents live just minutes from Fischer Hall, a historic dance hall with awesome ambiance about an hour west of Austin. The house Christy designed for her parents in the Texas Hill Country served as the ceremony location, with both a tractor and a covered wagon to welcome guests at the gate.
Christy's an architect specializing in sustainable design in Austin, so we sourced all the flowers and organic vegetables from Texas Specialty Cut Flowers and Johnson's Backyard Garden, two of the best suppliers of flowers and organic veggies, respectively. Christy borrowed all the vintage blue Mason jars from family friends!
Texas Specialty Cut really came through, it was the last week for all these amazing blooms: poppies, ranunculus, anemones, sweet peas and a whole lot more… the weather was so hot all the plants were getting tilled under the next week for a new round of summer flowers. Texas is a hard place to grow fresh cuts, but Christy's vision of lots of red, yellow and orange spring garden flowers turned out just perfect.
Johnson's Backyard Garden supplied all the local, organic kale, beets and carrots, which were used as table and entryway decorations. The guests left with pockets bulging with fresh produce-one guest even made borscht as a belated wedding gift!
Christy created the vintage seed packet 'table numbers' which featured images of guests' pets in unique designs for each table.
Music was a big part of the day as well, with Sean Castillo and the Hubcaps from San Antonio providing the reception with a rockin' set of swing and rockabilly numbers.
Sullivan Street Caterers from Blanco catered the amazing food, which was also locally sourced and perfectly complemented the floral design with seasonal greens, colorful roasted vegetables and flat-iron steaks grilled on site. Cupcakes in a variety of flavors from Polkadots in Austin provided a fun and tasty alternative to a traditional wedding cake, and a friend of the couple painted the wooden bride and groom to look like Christy and Jon in their wedding attire.
