Fairytale Wedding Shoot Turned Surprise Proposal at The Wayback Austin

We always love hosting some of the best local Austin wedding vendors here at The Wayback to help them make their visions come to life. We were honored to be the perfect backdrop for a luxury wedding-styled shoot planned by Scarlet Rose Event Planning, who was inspired by the classic Nancy Meyers film, "The Holiday." With a vision that transported us to the English countryside cottage gardens, this styled shoot promised to show the possibilities of hosting a luxury wedding at The Wayback.

The Wayback was the perfect setting for this styled shoot, with the lawn being the idyllic area for a wedding ceremony featuring abundant florals along the aisle and a large rose-filled floral installation at the altar. With the ceremony space overlooking the hills of Texas, the view transports you out of Austin, Texas, and makes you feel like you are looking at the English countryside.

The reception space on the cafe patio was arranged with the garden-style wedding details of our dreams, with a large floral centerpiece accented with gold silverware and handwoven linens. Scarlet Rose Event Planning added the perfect cottage core touch to this tablescape with the hand-painted candle tapers provided by MJ Tablescapes. The cake created by Olive + Aries was adorned with a whimsical green toile pattern, combining the vision of timeless elegance with an elevated modern look.

Peerless Events and Tents provided an inviting bar area and seamlessly incorporated birds and greenery patterns that harmonized with the wedding's overarching design concept. It was evident that meticulous thought had gone into this design, alluding to the inspiration of an English countryside garden where beautiful birds and lush greenery can be found.

This was no ordinary styled shoot; it took an unexpected turn that would leave everyone surprised and smiling. What started as a flawlessly planned elevated garden-style wedding-inspired photoshoot soon transformed into a real-life fairytale, all thanks to the groom model's secret plan to propose to his bride-model girlfriend.

With the lush arrangement of flowers provided by Wild Bunches Floral and the vintage birdcage décor hanging in the trees, a surprise proposal unfolded, leaving the bridal model smiling. Cori Brooke Young was there to capture it all for the couple to look back on and remember this special day. Because it's not every day you get proposed to in a beautiful Monique Lhuillier wedding dress surrounded by beautiful arrangements of garden roses.

After the proposal, the couple snuck off with Cori to one of our cottages to take quick engagement photos in a stunning Elliatt dress. Not only did the vendors pull off a unique styled shoot, but our model couple was able to have a fairytale proposal at The Wayback that they will remember forever.
