It should come as no surprise in this real wedding that Rachel's favorite detail was all the flowers. Because, seriously, this event in bursting with gorgeous blooms, from floral crowns to potted centerpieces. This chic wedding was hosted in Austin, but hosted at a venue with an unexpectedly European vibe (merging the couple's love of travel and hometown pride). Rachel knew that the day would go by quickly, so in preparation for savoring the experience she journaled thoroughly during her planning process. "I am SO grateful that I took the time to write and document about that season...It made the best keepsake, " she remarked.

Thank you to Heather Hawkins for sharing this lovely real wedding with us!
