For Kristi and Will, it was love at first swipe. After matching on Hinge, the couple met for their first date on October 1, 2015 at West Alabama Ice House. As Kristi and Will started dating, she fell in love with his kindness and he adored her sense of humor. Then, four years after they met—and in the exact spot in the parking lot where they first saw each other—Will asked Kristi to marry him. Just over a year later, the couple tied the knot during this charming lilac and ivory wedding.
Kristi and Will’s ceremony was so romantic! Before the couple’s 50 closest family and friends joined them on beautiful Lake Travis in Austin, Texas for the waterfront nuptials, Will fell head over heels for his soon-to-be bride all over again during the first look. Kristi’s bridal style was so elegant with a half updo full of curls, her gorgeous lace wedding dress, and her lush, full bouquet by Malleret Designs! The bridal bouquet was stunning, featuring ivory and mauve roses with vibrant pops of lilac amid trendy eucalyptus sprigs.
Not quite purple, a little blue, touched with pale gray. Lilac is like demure lavender’s chic, cosmopolitan cousin. Which is probably why we love this shade so much for 2011 & 2012 weddings. Paired with white or cream, it’s a dream for springtime bridal palettes. Add a stripe of black here and there, and you’ve got a winter wedding color scheme to die for. We also love how lilac lends itself both to contemporary and vintage-style weddings with equal elegance. Plus just the word lilac makes us think of the spring bloom’s infinitely alluring scent. Subtle and sophisticated, and never, ever dull–what’s not to love about lilac?
