A Romantic, Modern Wedding in Red Friday, July 22, 2011 ~ 8:03 a.m.

Before I get into today's real wedding, I wanted to quickly draw your attention to a couple of new additions to the blog! My fabulous husband was able to add a new "Search" function to the site, which you can find at the upper right hand corner of the page. This feature is working well, but it's a bit more of a process for me to go back through and tag all of my previous posts, so it'll definitely improve and garner more results for you with time! Also, at the bottom of this post, you'll notice a link to Vendors on Paper, a collection of wedding professionals that serves as a resource for brides and other experts. While all of these real wedding and engagement photo shoot features are chosen by me based on my own set of editorial criteria, should I happen to feature a vendor who is a member of Vendors on Paper, there will be a small diamond beside their business name, which will link back to the vendor guide. I encourage you to take advantage of these new features! As always, feel free to let me know if you have any difficulty using anything on the site, or if there's anything else you'd like for me to think about including on A Paper Proposal. My husband and I have built this website from scratch (no Wordpress or anything!), and it is a constant work in progress for us. I always welcome any feedback that you guys have to make A Paper Proposal a better experience for you :)

Alright, enough of the "housekeeping," let's get to the good stuff! I'll admit that this wedding does have more of a winter, holiday feel to it (especially the reception). I've been holding onto the lovely photos by Diana M. Lott Photography for way too long though, and I figure there has to be some winter and holiday brides out there, right?! If not, try and think of it as a nice change of pace from all of the summer weddings being featured nowadays :)

Harp music, flowers in deep, deep red, candlelight and Perrier. It really doesn't get much more romantic than that! Bride and groom, Kristen and Kevin married just before sunset at Kali Kate Event Pavilion in Buda, Texas. The elegant outdoor ceremony was decorated with white rose petals and small red floral arrangements lining the aisle where Kristen and her bridal party of ten walked to the soft, musical sounds of the harp. Kristen's ensemble matched the wedding decor rather perfectly...she wore a very modern, sleek white gown with black accents, red lipstick and a chic cage veil. The bridesmaids each wore their own little black dress, and carried varying bouquets of bold red and purple flowers.

The late afternoon ceremony was beautiful, but the evening reception that followed was unbelievably gorgeous! The grand indoor space was decorated with white lights, with a cozy fireplace set in the middle of the room beside the dance floor. The fireplace mantle was swagged in green and red florals and topped with white pilar candles, which gave the larger space an especially warm, intimate feel.
