WATCH: This Fun-Filled Austin Party Is Everything You Want in a Wedding

Real Weddings

The weekend is here, and for most soon-to-be brides and grooms, that means some much-needed (and uninterrupted!) wedding planning. Whether you're at the very beginning of the process or just weeks away from your own big day, there's a good chance you're still looking for a little — okay, or a lot — of inspiration to pull off the biggest party of your life. One of our favorite ways to gather up fresh ideas? Our real weddings video channel! Each week we're highlighting one of our favorite love stories, and today we're taking you inside Libby and Peter's laid-back wedding in Austin, Texas.

This duo invited guests (and videographer 63 Films) to Palm Door, an urban loft space in the heart of the city's downtown scene. It was the perfect backdrop for Libby and Peter's colorful celebration, which was filled with bright-hued flowers (think: bold coral, deep burgundy, and pops of yellow) and lots of love. From the bride's flower crown and the groom's boutonniere to the ceremony altar covered in fresh blooms and the couple's adorable pup ring bearer, who wore a garland of fragrant roses, this couple made sure to pay attention to the fine details.

This wedding wasn't just beautiful, it was also incredibly sweet and emotional. The groom choked up during their first look and then once again during the ceremony. While there were no apparent tears from the bride, her ear-to-ear grin was Libby's best wedding day accessory. Another awesome part about the bride's big day look? Her convertible wedding dress! We loved that her flowing ceremony frock was transformed into a party-ready cocktail-length dress for the reception.

The reception looked like a total blast, too. Despite the groom's broken arm, he was on the dance floor all evening long. Some guests (and the bride!) even busted out slings for the dance party — talk about making a guy feel comfortable!
