A Rustic, Modern Wedding at Three Points Ranch in Austin, Texas
Minh Tran, 31 and an architect, met Miguel Bao, also 31 and an architect, during their first year at the University of Texas, but didn’t start dating until the last months of their degree. The pair decided to try out the Northern California after graduation where they fell in love. After switching coasts to settle in Brooklyn, Minh and Miguel decided to get married where they met in Austin, Texas. They wanted an outdoor party where their close family and friends wouldn’t have to worry about the formalities of a traditional wedding and could celebrate, eat well and have a good time. Minh and Miguel found the rustic, casual atmosphere they were looking for at Three Points Ranch. The couple, partnered with Mibellarosa Designs, worked with the soft colors and vintage props already at the site, complete with airstreams, picnic-style tables, antlers, benches, frames and wooden accents that complimented the natural beauty of the surrounding trees, hills and wildflowers. A 40-foot eucalyptus garland, accented with pops of garden roses, ranunculus, rice flowers and spray roses, draped over the Eleven Oaks as Minh and Miguel’s ceremony arbor. The rustic wedding had a clean, modern aesthetic, accented by the geometric origami spheres that Minh made to decorate the peach ombre wedding cake and the triangular pattern she painted on the peach table runners. Her flowers included succulents and air plants with a mix of peach, gray and soft neutral blossoms for a unique, natural look.
