Texas brides are lucky girls. We’ve shared our love of Texas by sharing everything from our favorite wedding venues to bride’s salons.
Today’s real wedding shows off another reason Texas is wedding-planning-heaven: Knotting Hill Place. My Houstonian husband constantly reminds me that Texas is a big state, and this European-style estate was no exception. The venue was grand, opulent & luxurious, and the perfect backdrop to Soojin & Suk’s traditional spring wedding.
Their wedding was both inspired by old-world style and their Korean heritage.

Soojin and Suk wished for a romantic wedding with organic touches. We chose a palette of blushes and pale greens with warm ivory, golden tan, and warm ivory. As we designed, we had in mind old-world Europe and wanted to bring out the romanticism of the French countryside and warm Tuscan afternoons.
My favorite memory of that day is watching the bridesmaids and even the bride’s mother help Soojin prepare for her walk down the aisle. It was clear that each woman was very special to the bride, and the atmosphere was serene. Soojin was stunning in her large tulle gown and couldn’t have been more excited to show off the fact that it was a two-in-one dress! After the ceremony, Soojin removed the stunning skirt and revealed a form-fitting lace gown.
Soojin and Suk selected the newly-opened Knotting Hills Place located in Little Elm. The couple’s spring wedding was set in a stately mansion that embodied European elegance. Olive Grove Design designed a garden of flowers throughout the venue. The lush greenery and blooms spread romance through the air, like the scent of the floral arrangements.
They were also very concerned about their family’s and culture’s traditions. They wanted a traditional Western ceremony but chose to honor their heritage. This included wearing traditional Korean wedding clothing, keeping their parents at the ceremony, and having a translator translate the wedding message. The newlyweds visited each table at the reception to thank family and friends who had supported them during their love journey and as they embarked on their new life as husband and wife.
We also wanted to keep the wedding traditional, so we made all our choices with a timeless and heirloom perspective. The neutral linens made the florals, dark greenery, and sprawling foliage stand out. The walls at Knotting Hill Place reflected the late afternoon Texas light, which created a romantic and dreamy atmosphere. Flowers were carefully chosen to create subtle beauty and look like they were picked from the estate’s garden.
