Gold Wedding Inspiration!

Good Morning!

If you’re a modern/chic bride with a great taste in style and color then I’m going to guess that you are loving everything gold! I’ve only been obsessing over a beautiful gold wedding pallet forever now! We’ve filled up our Gold Wedding Inspiration Pinterest board with some awesome new pins that you should check out!

When I see a gold wedding, I think elegance and romance! Especially if you have a good color pallet! Sip your coffee and take a look at some of these pins from our Pinterest board.

Warning: Breathtaking images below 🙂

Thistlewood Manor & Garden’s Grand Reveal!

If you haven’t heard the fabulous news, we’ll fill you in! Platinum Weddings and Events has been asked to put together an inspiration area for a brand new venue, Thistlewood Manor & Garden’s, Grand Reveal! We are squealing with excitement!!

The first thing we did was put together an inspiration team of some of the best Austin wedding vendors out there! This includes, Premiere Events,Photogenica Photobooth, Piq Chocolates, The Marvelous Vintage Tea Party, WOW Factor Design, and last but certainly not least, the amazing, Kurt Grein.

Secondly, we turned to Pinterest for some design ideas! Thistlewood Manor & Gardens is a French style manor with a beautiful grand staircase and gorgeous chandeliers (which were obsessed with!!). The romance and ambiance of this chateau is simply enchanting! We can’t wait to show you this elegant new venue on Sunday, October 12th, from 1-5pm!

Pictures below are from our French Wedding Inspiration Pinterest board! For more, follow us on Pinterest 🙂

Wouldn't it be cheaper for  builders to replace some walls with all windows-why don't they?  Much better.
