Our favorite time of a wedding is getting ready to walk down the aisle. There is an sense of anticipation from everyone. But our favorite part about being asked to provide pieces for a wedding is knowing that in even a tiny way we became a part of someones best day of their life. What advice do you have for brides deciding on their vintage rental concept/design? Keeping it simple and true to your vision. Vintage/Boutique rentals are a way of topping off the overall design. Keep colors of furniture choices clean and add pops of color with pillows. Pull the colors for your design from your floral selection and keep to a three color maximum. By using vintage pieces in unique ways such as a trunk as a...

Capra & Cavelli – Austin Wedding Vendor

Capra & Cavelli – Austin Wedding Vendor

Welcome to another Austin wedding vendor highlight! I’m so excited to share some great advice to groom’s getting married or really any man looking for a great suit/tuxedo.  I had the pleasure of meeting Buddy Estrella at Capra & Cavelli and enjoyed working with him in April to create an Italian look for our Tuscany in Texas wedding theme.  It was a great experience and he took my vision and created a perfectly tailored, modern look for our two models.   I know from a photographer’s perspective, nothing looks better on a groom than a perfectly tailored suit or tuxedo…it really makes a difference and just as the bride gets her ‘once in a lifetime’ dress, I think the men need the same treatment! As a top wedding clothier in Texas, I asked Buddy for his expert opinion and advice for grooms (or their brides searching online for what their man should wear!).  Check out his answers below and if you’re in the Austin area or visiting, go see him at Capra & Cavelli for all your menswear needs and tell him I said Hello!

How long have you been doing wedding floral designs? Full time since 2004 What’s your favorite thing about being a part of a bride & groom’s wedding day? The favorite thing are the hugs and praise that it was all they dreamed of and more. To bring to reality something that whas been planned for and thought about in great detail for sometimes over a year is truly exciting and every bit why I do what I do – the hugs and gratefulness of the parents and couples are all worth the hard work. What advice do you have for brides deciding on their floral design concept?
