Sustainable Southwestern Fiesta Themed Wedding Inspiration, Texas Hill Country

Excited to learn that a few of our BSB vendors, Styled by Kelsey V. (Wedded Weekend organizer) and Camel and Birdie (calligrapher), were a part of this amazing southwestern stylized shoot, designed by Garnished Event and captured by Kati Hewitt Photography! We thought today couldn’t be a more perfect day to share some desert and fiesta-infused wedding inspiration. KatiHewittPhotography_KHP3997 Creativity was at its peak when this vendor team paired a bit of modern desert style with a touch of traditional fiesta elements. Tiny, bright potted cactus danced along the woven Serape table runner (long blanket like shawl native to Mexican and often brightly covered). Gold terrariums incorporated with white desert rocks and succulents brought the perfect amount of modern aesthetics to the shoot. The vendor team also popped in a few mini donkey pinatas to add a bit of fun to the already festive feel. We are also in love with the hand painted, 3-tiered cake, by Get Caked, added another unique touch to finish off the southwestern vibe. Last but not least, the breathtaking view of the Texas hill country was the perfect backdrop to make this styled shoot one for the books! KatiHewittPhotography_KHP4329 Kelsey is currently in Thailand for the next 6 weeks, teaching hair, makeup, and basic cosmetology practices through Shear Love International, an organization empowering local women to create their own business through hair design. KatiHewittPhotography_KHP4056 Catrina, of Camel and Birdie, is pretty much the coolest person around and personally inspired and taught me calligraphy last fall. Her heart for serving others and her community encourage us daily! KatiHewittPhotography_KHP3935 Renegade Custom Made Gowns has designed some of the funnest, boldest, out of the box, and sustainable couture wedding gowns available to creative alternative brides around the world.

Giving Back Story :
Fat Cat Creamery is both sustainable and supports local farmers.  Their milk and heavy cream come from Texas dairy farmers Mill-King Creamery in McGregor, Texas, and the eggs used are delivered twice weekly by Ole Dad Farms. Their good friends at The Barry Farm bring figs, citrus, and other fresh ingredients that they put in the many flavors of fresh ice cream.
The ‘cats’ believe in sustainability, evidenced by the packaging. The ice cream packages are made of leftover wheat straw and are compostable, while the shakes come in vintage glasses which are washed and reused. The ‘cats’ also use spoons made of environmentally friendly materials, such as bio-plastics and cornstarch.
Meg and Chris took some time for themselves to celebrate their anniversary by participating in this inspiration shoot. They both are involved with the local animal shelter, and have two adopted fur babies.
Styled by Kelsey V. (BSB Vendor) upcycled the cake stand and the mint chair.  These were both Salvation Army finds that were stripped and spray painted to bring new life into rusty metal pieces. Kelsey is a personal stylist and donates her time to various projects, in relation with her trade, from helping cancer patients learn proper make up technique and empowering confidence, to teaching single mom’s how to dress for their job interview.
