As an event planner and florist, Paige Smith (33) sees tons of weddings and styles. But when it came time for her own wedding to Matt Morgan (35), Paige had an overflow of ideas. She started with the things she loves, and the inspiration grew from there. Their decision to get married at Pecan Springs Ranch in Austin, Texas, a rustic venue in Hill Country, was an easy one—Paige is a partner at the venue, and has planned other beautiful weddings there. As avid collectors of antique trinkets, Paige incorporated eclectic vintage decor, from vases to figurines. And it wouldn’t have been true to Paige without tons of equine accents, since she’s passionate about horses. Next in line, flowers were the most important detail, so Paige and Matt recruited Paige's floral design company Pure Love Style and the Flower Girl TX to bring in colorful pink and red blooms that brought natural whimsy to their day. They even created a gorgeous flower cascade down the wedding cake by the talented Simon Lee Bakery. There are too many details we’re obsessed with in Paige and Matt’s wedding, including beer burros, bluegrass music and a host of food trucks. (Who says the best wedding food can't come on a paper plate?) And if that isn't enough, you know for sure it’s going to be good when Paige’s parting advice for future brides is the following: “A confetti cannon is always a good idea.” See what she means, captured by Al Gawlik Photography and Sarah Goss Photography, below.

Instead of sticking to a color theme, Paige's bouquet included hues ranging from deep reds to pinks, lavender and even white. (She calls it "shades of lipstick.") Her bridal bouquet and her maid of honor's bouquet included peonies, garden roses, anemones, tulips, celosia, coxcomb, scabiosa, astilbes, lilacs, sweet peas, jasmine, clematis and more.
Paige and Matt went all out for their ceremony flowers. They said "I do" under a wedding arch covered in bold and bright pink blooms. Lanterns, pink and white flowers and flower petals lined the grass aisle.
Simon Lee Bakery created this beautiful three-tier cake frosted in white buttercream. A cascade of roses, anemones, astilbes, garden roses and antique hydrangeas added a pop of color to the display.
To accomplish a laid-back summer feel to their wedding, Paige and Matt brought in food trucks. They created a food-truck eatery and even added a few pink flamingos to set the mood. Lawn, patio and indoor seating provided comfortable places to relax after the ceremony.
After the ceremony, guests moved to the Pecan Springs Ranch covered pavilion in Austin, Texas, to enjoy bluegrass music and passed appetizers. Mini shrimp and grits were a delicious Southern touch.
Round guest tables had textured white linens topped with overflowing flower boxes and tall vases filled with whimsical blooms. The bold and bright arrangements included garden roses, anemones, ranunculus, peonies and astilbes. Eclectic vintage decor and a host of candles surrounded the floral centerpieces.
Paige's true passion are her horses: She's been riding and showing horses for most of her life, so her wedding wouldn't have been her style without lots of equine touches. She incorporated lots of vintage horse figurines, ribbons and saddles in her decor to showcase her favorite hobby. (We love how this horse figurine is even wearing a mini floral wreath.)
La Tavola Fine Linen provided black-and-white-striped table runners to cover the wooden farm tables at the reception at Pecan Springs Ranch in Austin, Texas. Mismatched vintage vases overflowing with deep red, pink and white blooms added color and whimsy.
Paige and Matt had five wedding cakes! They supplemented their main three-tier cake with four single or double-tier confections, which each continued the theme of black-and-white stripes or textured whites to match their linens. Bright pink peonies or garden roses added color to each cake. A shabby-chic table with a backdrop of vintage windowpanes completed the dessert display.
To continue the vintage theme, Paige and Matt brought in a vintage Airstream trailer to use as a photo booth. Guests donned silly props and enjoyed making memories here.
Paige and Matt's final surprise? Later in the night, they shocked their guests when a confetti cannon went off over the dance floor at Pecan Springs Ranch in Austin, Texas.
After Paige and Matt's sparkler exit, they hopped onto the back of their friend's vintage truck and headed down the road. As they approached the exit of Pecan Springs Ranch in Austin, Texas, they got an unexpected treat: fireworks. "We were completely surprised and in awe," Paige says. "It was the perfect ending to a perfect night."
