From Bird Dog Wedding: Tucked away in East Austin, between local coffee shops and off-beat food trucks, sits a hidden, idyllic space called 1102 East. The venue features a cozy bungalow and modern industrial details with a bohemian flair throughout. After stumbling upon it one Saturday afternoon, we knew it was the perfect place for our midcentury modern bohemian styled shoot. Photographer Kayla Snell and I teamed up to create a colorful, fun wedding with the hope of inspiring modern, bohemian brides who are currently planning weddings for this fall.

Our bride Dagny Hines was all dolled up with a loose updo from Kristi Drake and a moody makeup look created by Lauren Davis at Hint of Shimmer. Valerie Wolf at Davy Gray created the perfect floral hairpiece that Dagny could easily wear all night long. Dagny wore an ethereal, silk dress from Saint Isabel that featured beaded and lace sleeves and a gorgeous open back.
Groom Casey Vanderstoep was dressed to the nines in a navy suit and striped shirt and tie from ByGeorge Austin. His casual, comfortable suit is a must-have for a low key Austin wedding. A wild, asymmetrical bouquet created by Davy Gray was full of lush blooms and greenery and sprinkled with colorful wildflowers, the perfect mix for any Austin bride.
The Tabe Setting
The cozy, sweetheart table designed by Carmen Collins at Bird Dog Wedding featured rentals from Loot Vintage Rentals, paper goods from Goldie Design Co, and a large, floral centerpiece from Davy Gray. Colored taper candles and sheepskin throws added a fun flair to the clean tablescape.
Dagny and Casey snacked on sweet treats from Walton’s Fancy & Staple, a local Austin bakery and café owned by Sandra Bullock. Walton’s is most notably known for their buttery golden eggs and a large assortment of flavorful macarons.
