Our design team in Austin was creating tropical technicolor dreams not long ago. The Texas capital has neon lights, retro facades, and funky design.

We were thrilled that this wedding inspiration from Austin’s Blanton Museum was based on Pantone’s 2020 Color of the Year: Classic Blue! This museum wedding is an excellent option for couples escaping the Texas summer heat. It features blue ombre walls and terracotta-orange decor.

The team, led by Blue Sparrow Events, created this wedding inspiration, which played off the venue’s beautiful ombre walls and the art gallery theme. The decor is a museum-inspired wedding, with lucite furniture and flowers in clear boxes.

This editorial shoot fuses extreme opposites. This earthy and minimal design combines desert dryness with an ocean landscape. This shoot was inspired by the Blanton Museum of Art in downtown Austin, Texas. This minimalistic, soft, yet bold wedding design was heavily influenced by the blue interior walls of artist Teresita Fernandez (also known as “Stacked waters”).

Local creatives worked together to breathe new life into this scene. Penelope L’amore’s photography captured unrefined sunset coastal vibes with ease.

Abbie’s abstract floral art, created with Floral, was inspired by the unstructured, rocky landscape at the bottom of a sea. It also incorporated earth tones and shades of a desert.

The Dress & Beauty

The Unbridled gown featured ruffles that resembled ocean waves. Jessica Roop Beauty gave the bride a gorgeous makeover, highlighting her dewy, glowing skin. She also used sunset-inspired eyeshadows to complement the colors in the bridal bouquet.

Vanna Van Oss from Blue Sparrow Events created and planned the shoot’s bridal styling and overall design concept. Bridal accessories were edgy gold Rebecca Minkoff earrings, chunky suede shoes lifted by a bold pearlescent wrapped heel, and a matching pearl engagement ring.

Tabletop Decor

began the process of tabletop styling and design at. We chose a Panama Natural Table Linen in “Sand” to coordinate with their Velo Gold + Grey flatware. The look was finished with yellow dinnerware by CB2 and a triangular hemstitch-folded napkin to contrast the sharp edges of the plates against the soft ones.


The Blanton Museum of Art was a great place to showcase the stationery designed by Little Duck Calligraphy. Penelope L’amore photographed and styled the flat-lays to highlight the designs on the stationary. Abbie from Blumen Floral chose the unique dried stems and accessories.

The Cake

The cake was presented in a museum-style. Melody’s Joy-styled florals and three white columns on a clear acrylic stand. Danae from Feathers and Frosting used a monochromatic design to mimic the Stacked Waters on the museum walls.
