Natalie and Ryan said “I do” in the grand Pavilion at Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa, in Austin, Texas. This darling duo selected the special spot (one of our faves for weddings), because of the history the groom had with the property. Natalie shared a little bit behind their big day with us. “Ryan grew up at the club golfing and swimming. His family has been members for years, and he has lots of fond memories there. It is such a gorgeous location in Austin with rolling hills and big open windows, something that I was looking for. The ease of knowing your guests could stay right there at the venue and enjoy such a beautiful resort was comforting. I knew everyone would be taken care of.” Natalie and Ryan certainly knew what they wanted, and an Austin wedding location with everything on property meant it would be a seamless experience for everyone, including their guests! Even though this wasn’t a destination wedding in Texas, many of the bride’s family flew in from New Mexico, so a place to stay for out-of-towners was a must.
The look of the hotel wedding was one of sophisticated elegance. Natalie described her vision to us: “I was going for a classic, elegant feel. Something timeless and romantic. I chose a palette of blush pink, ivory, and rose gold.” And with that, the ballroom was dressed head to toe in sparkle, grand lighting (including a custom wedding gobo), and over-the-top tall centerpieces.
For dinner? “Our favorite menu item was the sea bass and peppered tenderloin.” And after dinner, a traditional wedding cake and a location-appropriate golf themed groom’s cake really hit the spot!
But it was the sendoff at the end of the night that rounded out one amazing celebration at this sweet Austin Omni Barton Creek wedding.
Congratulations to Natalie and Ryan, thank you for sharing your day!
