Twilight Metallic Glam Wedding At Sacred Oaks at Camp Lucy Texas

If you’re someone who gets weak in the knees at the very thought of a candle light twilightesque wedding, you’d better take in this dreamy wedding from Texas wedding photographer Al Gawlik Photography sitting down!  Dripping in all that sparkles, Tiffany & Thomas created a unique glam wedding world that was equal parts posh & sophistication, all while being cozy & easy going!  Being a part of the wedding industry herself, Tiffany surprised everyone with a full on glam wedding event {something she swore she’d never do!} starting with her home team, the multi-faceted Whim Hospitality.  Sacred Oaks at Camp Lucy in Texas served as the perfect backdrop upon which the team got to creating.  To bring to life the vision of posh refinement, color & texture played a large part in the overall design.  Details like sequin & rosette linens, mirrored long reception tables, black crystal dripping tall centerpieces & blooms upon blooms brought the refinement while special touches like a vintage lounge area & lawn games created an atmosphere for relaxation!  To turn up the romance volume, cluster light strands swayed from the trees, while chandeliers & candles punctuated the aisle & stunning ceremony arch.  Tiffany’s bridesmaids were in on all the sparkles as well, donning gorgeous metallic gowns in black.  It is a unique task to marry a glam wedding with an air of casual enjoyment, something Tiffany & Thomas did beautifully in every way.

Tommy works in the motorcycle industry and really appreciates all things motorized, and he is especially proud of the 1954 Chevy Belair he restored all on his own.  (The car was the getaway car in the wedding.)  Tiffany works in the events industry, specifically in catering and she specializes in weddings.  They dated 7 years before he got down on one knee on a family trip to Rosemary Beach, FL.  The proposal shocked Tiffany because they were in public (in a restaurant) but it was really special because it happened in front of all of Tommy’s immediate family.  Tommy and Tiffany are a bit opposite – Tommy being more casual and go with the flow, while Tiffany loves to dress up whenever possible and plans pretty much everything.  But, they complement each other really well and are a great example of traditional values embracing a modern world.

Nobody expected Tiffany to have a big wedding.  She had always said she would not since she has been in the industry for so long and has seen it all.  But, this relationship was worth celebrating, so it quickly became a full on wedding production.  It was important to Tiffany that her wedding be a little unique, as well as reflect her and Tommy’s personalities.   The theme was just that – sophisticated yet comfortable, a lofty goal.  The look was very represenatative of the couple’s style – refined with lots of black accents.  Both the bride and groom would easily say black is their signature color.  The groom and groomsmen wore customized converse with their initals printed on the back.  The bridesmaids wore a black dress of their choice, but it had to have lots of bling on it per the bride’s request.  There was a huge custom paper flower wall behind the cake with hints of black in the flowers.  The bride brought her brooch collection and they were accented all around – on the tied cocktail tables, on the back of the bride and groom’s chairs, and accenting signage.  They had custom Luckenbach inspired coozies, quoting a famous lyric from the song of the same name.   There was a comfy lounge area with couch, chairs, mantle and lit up LOVE sign where you could sit and write your message to the couple in the guest book.  Someone wrote in the guestbook (a coffee table book about New Orleans – site of the bride’s bachelorette party) that the wedding was “posh but relaxed,” and that made Tiffany happy.

Favorite Moments ~ While the ceremony was wonderful and that moment of being married in front of all your closest friends and family is really too amazing for words – Tiffany definitely had a favorite moment from the reception and Tommy loved it, too.  Tiffany and Tommy were lucky enough to have just amazing entertainment the entire night, and the last band was their very favorite band – Micky and the Motorcars.  (Texas Americana)  Tiffany and Tommy actually met one night years ago in downtown Austin when he was still playing with his own Texas country band.  So, there was a moment in the night where Micky invited Tommy on the stage and they sang a song together.  It was not planned, so that made it all the more special.  He did an amazing job, everyone rushed to the dance floor with amazing energy, and Tiffany was nothing but smiles.  There were so many unforgettable moments that night, but that one takes the cake!
