ica Odom, Energy Media Director for Environmental Defense Fund, and Adam Vehik, CFO of Balcones Resources, met in South Austin during the spring of 2010. There, they discovered a shared passion for

sustainability, live music and the outdoors, which made the city a perfect fit. “Austin is definitely home for us now,” Mica says. “We love spending time on the Greenbelt with our dog Zoë, catching shows at Alamo Draft-


house and embracing whatever exciting adventure this town offers up.” For their wedding at Mercury Hall, the couple sought to celebrate the city and the people who brought them together. “Most of all, we wanted everyone to have fun!” Mica says. “We loved every minute of the weekend and felt so blessed to have all of our friends and family in one place.” Adam, wearing Hugo Boss, and Mica, dressed in a delicate Chantilly lace gown by Augusta Jones from Unbridled, were married in the chapel at Mercury Hall, as light streamed in from the beautiful stained glass windows. Wild Poppy provided feminine florals for the day, Ashley Garmon Photographers snapped the photos, and afterward, guests enjoyed a decadent reception with music by DJ Honeycomb, cuisine by Austin Catering and vintage-inspired cake and cake bars by Blue Note Bakery. Though the celebration


continued through Halloween weekend with a “HalloWedding” costume party the next night on the Parkside rooftop with DJ Manny, Mica notes that the ceremony itself was the memory they will treasure most. “Adam and I agreed that it was the most magical moment of our lives, ” she says. 1. When searching for the perfect venue, Mica and Adam fell in love with Mercury Hall. “It is simple and quaint, and we absolutely love the stained glass and beautiful trees,” Mica says. 2.
