A #Moody Wedding – Styled Shoot at The Astin Mansion

By: Amy Kujawa

The Astin Mansion’s “stone room” to the left when you walk in is a dream. The natural lighting coming from all angles makes for the most beautiful photographs. The fireplace is an added feature which is in the center of the room and really accentuates the true vintage construction and design of the mansion. 

Rachel Driskell Photography, Willow Lane, and Cake Junkie teamed up with us on this moody collab. Most of our rentals featured here are from Party Time Rentals’ sister store out of Austin, Premiere Select. The black velvet linen plays on the term “goth”, and the colorful floral tones it down for an overall moody vibe with a pop of color… also can we just marvel in those striking black pillar candles?

Our Premiere Select sculpted acrylic chairs with floral and greenery accent attached is such a unique feature. The different lines in the chair back allow the floral to be wired on and create a statement piece. This is similar to an aisle marker— but a chair marker!

Keeping the black just in the Black Ariana Wine Goblet, and pairing with our clear glass Valore beverage and champagne flute is the modern moody feel we are all here for! Valore is our most popular glassware line. It is simple and effortless at a good price.

The marble coupe dinner plate along with the cobbled black salad plate are the stars of the show and inspired this entire tablescape. A coupe plate means that instead of having a flat edge all the way around, it curves upwards (see our lily coupe dinnerware as well).

Also- can we also have a moment of silence for this glass platinum orizzonte charger? With flecks of silver glitter, it resembles an inward sunburst. We also own this charger in gold. It too is simply phenomenal.

We opted to cross and tie our capri gold dinner fork and knife with this cute piece of purple ribbon. We are always looking for fun ways to display your flatware besides in the traditional setting.

Overall this table setting is a 10/10 for us… be right back going to go look for any excuse to throw a party.

The closeup shot we all needed of this cute lil’ Willow Lane arrangement. Don’t the flowers look like they’re dancing to doy?

Moving outside and across the courtyard we designed the old “cigar room” that typically doubles as the bar area when you host an event at the Astin Mansion. We opted to create a lounge area with our beautiful Pewter Versaille furniture. Can you imagine a couple taking photographs here serving looks? #GOALS

Cake Junkie created this gorgeous statement cake that was displayed in the same furniture room. What better way to lounge than to look at something so beautiful and sweet?

The Astin is one of our favorite spots to showoff what we can do! Thanks to all of the vendors who participated!
