I love autumn, especially here in The Woodlands. If you haven't decided exactly when to have your wedding, this time of the year is so wonderful. The weather is perfect, the sunset through the forest is absolutely lovely, and with the holidays just around the corner, your guests are in the mood to celebrate! I also love autumn because wedding inspiration turns to rich jewel tones and sparkle + shine (those gold jewelry pieces!) is always in season. This styled session is filled with old world charm and highlights details that are sure to inspire your woodlands wedding. I'm loving it, how about you?

We love the bold patterns of Mexican tiles, and bright embroidery from Mexican dresses. We love this dress for a bride having a more casual event or the perfect bridesmaid dress for a wedding that is more formal. Serve your guests up bright glasses of homemade agua frescas, munch on Mexican wedding cookies and feast on a buffet of sizzling fajitas.
The idea of using dry pinto beans as jar fillers is pure genius. It is visually interesting, subtly hints towards the theme and is just the right shade to compliment the table settings, cacti and succulents. (Not to mention budget friendly!)

Hello! I'm Jenn, the editor of Woodlands Bride. Welcome to the product of two of my passions: beautiful weddings + graphic design.
I love dinnerplate dahlias, inspirational quotes, lace, and I never pass up a slice of wedding cake (or groom's cake). I am a sucker for bow ties. I find beauty in most everything and I love helping brides plan their weddings. It's their own little fairy tale come to life.
Say hello! I would love to meet you!
We have had the opportunity to share many gorgeous weddings from the talented team at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center, but this one is nothing short of swoonworthy. The classically elegant florals brimming with hydrangeas, the bright blue bridesmaids - and then to top it all off with dueling pianists? We love it! Best wishes Ashley + Birkir!

This adorable couple from The Woodlands, Texas chose a bright green + yellow wedding at the Wildflower Barn just outside Austin. All the cute details - like the handmade desserts from Frost Bake Shoppe - and the backdrop of wildflowers display the offbeat style of the couple. The wedding was photographed by Jennifer Weems Photography.

This 1920's style session was inspired by Downtown Abbey, The Great Gatsby and the photographer's love of early twentieth century fashion. The bridal session featured a BHLDN wedding gown + accessories, and the collaboration of vendors also included florals from Billabong Fresh Flower Farm, stunning calligraphy by Art by Nieman, makeup by Jen Marine - with a fabulous backdrop of Tiny Boxwood's restaurant in Highland Village. We love the pastel floral paired with ivory and the elegant vintage vibe of the whole session, captured by the talented Sasha Boheme Photography.
Love the vintage fashion as much as we do? Check out even more BHLDN loveliness here!
