INVITATION DESIGN It’s a lot of fun to watch the global trends come and go every year. Whether they originate in a NYC fabric mill or a fashion house in Paris, every season we find ourselves glued to the reports to see what’s hot and what’s not. We are seeing lots of bright and lively colors being celebrated in stationary designs. Color your wedding your way! We are aslo seeing lots of ruffles, rosettes, bows and layers in wedding fashion. Extend this trend and add dimension to your wedding invitations by layering them with vellum bands and decorative seals. Be sure to make it personal. Today’s couples are reflecting their passion, personality and style across their wedding stationery, using signature colors, modern fonts, fun patterns, unique wording and photojournalistic photography. 2

Renowned for their hummingbird gardens and nearly unlimited number of spots to capture the perfect wedding photos on camera, the Hummingbird House is one of the premier venues in South Austin to host a garden wedding. The location alone — shot by Daniel C. Photography — would have been enough to impress but, combined with the chic stylistic choices and fabulous pops of peaches and lime greens, the setting was simply stunning. That evening, guests were invited to enjoy a gorgeous four-tiered wedding cake by Simon Lee Bakery, and the couple added pizzazz with their unique selection of live music: first, a three-piece mariachi band, and then an evening of dancing by local R&B band, Dysfunkshun Junkshun. All flower arrangements were by The Flower Studio. To read more about this couple and see the full wedding coverage, check out blissmagatx.com.

Jenny Barroso

& Terrance Ganaway | April 14, 2012

Something about garden weddings gets us every time. And this long-awaited marriage between Terrance Ganaway, the 2011 running back for Baylor University, and his beautiful bride, Jenny, was no different. The couple chose a spectacular venue for their Central Texas wedding with soft, romantic hues and elegant spring arrangements to complement the bride’s gorgeous lace gown. Throughout the wedding, the couple laughed, smiled, and even engaged in a bit of lighthearted teasing. "I would take a photo of the couple, and while the bride was posing all beautifully, the groom would sneak in a few quirky faces,� said the photographer from Bliss Photography. The groom graduated from Baylor University in 2010, where the bride is currently in her senior year. The couple reside in Waco, Texas. 66 Bliss | Summerq 2012
