*Remember the post I did a few days ago on those amazing handmade, scrapbook inspired wedding details? I got the go ahead from Noaillese to do a post of the entire wedding, so here it is!
The Bride: Noaillese, 25, Software Engineer
The Groom: Warren, 25, Computer Science PhD Student
The Location: The Villa Antonia in Austin, Texas
Wedding Colors: Apple Green and Eggplant Purple
What made this wedding modern: A modern color combination mixed with squares, bold flowers, and the use of hand made paper projects made Noaillase and Warren’s big day stand out.
Where they splurged: Once Noaillese and Warren saw the Villa Antonia in Austin, they couldn’t say no, and their biggest splurge automatically became the venue and the food.
Where they saved: Noaillese made all of the stationery herself, including invitations, programs, menus, and table numbers (yes, she’s a crafty gal – complete with her own etsy store!). She also priced out doing the flowers herself and then found a florist willing to match her calculated price. This is a bit of wedding vendor negotiation we could all learn from – great idea!
The outdoor ceremony - no wonder they fell in love with the venue!
The best part of the wedding:
“My favorite part of the wedding was sitting down at the sweetheart table with my new husband and just taking a deep breath.” It’s these quiet moments that we remember the most about a wedding.
Looking back, what they would have changed:
Noaillese and Warren had a no regrets wedding – When asked what she would change Noaillese replied “Nothing really. I remember spending the whole day smiling and that’s all I could ask for.”
Some of the "negotiated" flowers - wait till you see the rest!

Told you they were amazing!
” Enjoy the planning process but don’t worry about it too much. And on the day of the wedding don’t let anything bother you. Just enjoy the time spent with family, friends, and your new husband.“
