The Bryan Museum - Galveston, TX

From Lauren Field: “We were moved by the intricate architecture of the opulent conservatory set amongst a lush landscape. The delicate combination of emerald green glass, olive iron work, and crystal chandeliers emulates a romantic grandeur reminiscent of the past. We wanted to capture the sweet ambiance of a celebration tucked away in a chic historical memento.”

Inspired by the deep hues of the grounds and the richness of the combination of rustic and baroque, we chose a refined palette of textured earth tones with hints of emerald, goldenrod, and gray. Elements of reflective glazing, luxe foliage, and metal sculpture provided a stunning backdrop both indoors and out; and we were influenced by its inherent beauty. The celebration was characterized by geometrical and metallic details layered with neutral wood tones.

The table was set with a dimensional garland in soft white florals, textured foliage, and golden tones adorned with cadiz shells and dried mushrooms atop light taupe charmeuse. We chose antique copper flatware, brass goblets, and geometrical plates of deep emerald layered with antique glass placecards. The table and bench were simple time worn mission style dark wood. The cake was an olive green ombre marble pattern with gold metallic details. The invitations were classic black, white, and gray with moss and plexiglass details.

The bride was dressed in an exquisite long sleeve lace and tulle gown that embodied the delicate architecture of the conservatory. She carried a bouquet of whimsical white blooms paired with deep rust and dry goldenrod accents.

She wonders at golden hour before meeting her love.
