Wedding Planning and Coordination {Alison + Brent}

Alison and Brent got married on a clear day at Star Hill Ranch. Alison is a talented artist and hand letterer that drew out every area of her wedding design for me. Super special lady here, folks. A+B worked hard to bring their vision to life – lots of hand lettering all the paper elements, building a corn hole set, constructing boutonnieres, etc. It all paid off – their lovely wedding was featured on Southern Weddings! A+B have also started Wayfarers Creative Co. to share their lovely creative talents with the world. Congratulations, you two!

Oh, and did I mention I got to work some of my favorite people? Paige Newton Photography snapped the gorgeous images and The Byrd Collective produced absolutely amazing floral pieces. See end of post for the complete list of vendors.

Event {BHLDN Austin Afternoon}

So when BHLDN invites you to participate in a Sunday brunch event at their store to highlight their favorite Austin vendors, one says yes, right? Right!

We were so thrilled to be included in a group of some of the most wonderful vendors in town: The Byrd Collective, Liv by Design, Word of Mouth Catering, Tiny Pies, The Creative Parasol, Ashley Garmon Photographers, and Paige Newton Photography.

The event took place in late July and we styled several areas throughout the store with Liv by Design. The BHLDN staff were so kind and pretty much let us do as we pleased, a designer’s dream. Seriously, I was a kid in a candy store and even created some impromptu hankie bunting. So fun. Thank you, BHLDN!

The main table was garden-to-table inspired with a bit of quintessential Austin eclectic charm, perfect for a brunch wedding. We also tried to give the other areas a backyard, sweet feel that is so vital to the Austin wedding scene.

Here’s a little peek at the event through Insta pics. I will post a few profesh pics by Ashley Garmon and Paige Newton soon. Cheers!

…oh, yeah, and I got to wear this super cute BHLDN polka dot dress!

Happy One Year to Us!

Today, we’re celebrating the one year anniversary of Matt and I (not the blog). Matt is one of the most genuine, caring, sweet, fun-loving, funny guys I’ve had the pleasure to have known. He’s my number one supporter and best friend. Everyday is an adventure we are lucky to share. I love you, babe!

April 9, 2011 was the best day of our lives and we got to cement our union in the eyes of the law (by the GREAT state of Texas). We had such a blast celebrating with our friends and family as you can probably tell.

Our design was bright and colorful bier garten.

So. Much. Fun. Enjoy these beautiful photos by Paige Newton Photography!

Wedding Design {Lori + Nathan}

Oh, man! Where do I begin…It was SO fun helping design this wedding and there were many reasons for that. Number one being that this was my best friend’s wedding!! And, I was the matron of honor – hurray! And, I got to spend so much quality fun time with family and friends along the way – bonus!  
Lori and Nathan put on an eclectic, colorful garden fiesta that played with vintage and modern elements – in turn, producing a totally unique wedding that reflected their fun-loving personalities. The San Antonio Botanical Garden provided the perfect setting for this magical day. This wedding turned out so beautifully that Style Me Pretty Texas featured it!
Katherine O’Brien Photography snapped these amazing photos. 
Girls getting ready. Lori wore beautiful Kate Spade Clume wedges and a gorgeous Modern Trousseau gown from Unbridaled in Austin. Pretty make-up by Nisa Nicole Makeup Artistry.
The Creative Parasol designed the program fans and Eden’s Echo arranged all the flowers.

Bouquets featured dahlias, ranunculus, billy balls, hypericum berries, scabiosa pods, snapdragon, hydrangeas, and roses to name a few. So pretty!
For favors, Lori and Nathan gave guests succulents from Nature’s Herb Farm in baby jars. Table elements: flowers arranged by Eden’s Echo in a mix of vintage vessels collected by the bride, groom, family, and friends; framed table numbers by The Creative Parasol; and green/cream and gold/cream chevron table runners sewn by a friend. Each table was a little different than the next!

This precious little teapot was found at Max’s Haus Mercantile in New Braunfels. 
Table assignments by The Creative Parasol. Lots of vintage goodies. g(room) and b(ride) letters from Anthropologie.

Lori and Nathan’s ceremony overlooked the Lucile Halsell Conservatory at the Garden. Aisle poms made by your’s truly!

Bride and bridesmaids crafted ribbon wands to send off the bride and groom! Here I am showing you how to wave it :). 
Lori and Nathan making their grand exit! What a celebration!
A few Holga shots from Katherine O’ Brien
What I love most about this wedding is how family, friends, and vendors came together to pull off a vision. The collaboration between those three parties not only makes a wedding look amazing, but makes it  meaningful to the couple. 
Congratulations, Lori and Nathan! I love you guys! Thank you for including me in your special day.

Client Love {Jennifer + Anthony}

This past weekend I met with my client, Jennifer! It was pure magic! Not only is her aesthetic amazing and fun, she is wonderful and so sweet! It was a perfect match.

SO – I thought I’d share the pinboard we’re collaborating on – because her style is on point. This one is going to be off the hook, y’all! Plus, we’ve already got a great team of vendors going including: Palm Door, Pink Avocado, and Paige Newton Photography!

Her loves:

Recap {The Cream Event}

We had such a blast at The Cream Event, hosted by Bash, Please at Mercury Hall on Sunday! The ladies take this curated show full of the cream (of the crop!) of wedding vendors across the country and decided to bring the event to Austin! My friend and colleague, Lauren of The Creative Parasol, was one such talented vendor selected to participate and she was kind enough to ask me to come help her out! I gladly obliged.

I could go on and on about how great The Cream Event was, but I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.
