spent the evening with family celebrating. “I didn’t expect any of it,” Meredith said. “It was perfect and amazing.” Afterward, they quickly got into wedding planning mode. Meredith went with her family the weekend they got engaged to look for a dress. At Unbridaled in Austin, she found an Augusta Jones gown with a decorative lace neckline. She added a Jimmy Choo belt and veil and fell in love with how she looked and felt in the gown. “I never second guessed it,” Meredith said. “I felt so comfortable in it. I loved the neckline of it. It was so different from anything I had seen.” Gregg and his groomsmen, in line with the natural, organic theme that they chose for the ceremony, wore navy suits. Gregg’s favorite part of his wardrobe was the custom-made cowboy boots he wore with his and Meredith’s initials inscribed on the back of them. For their wedding, Meredith and Gregg chose the Winfield Inn to fit the romantic, garden party feel they were going for. They loved the bare beauty of the venue. Built in 1883, the Winfield Inn features a vintage mansion on 27 acres, shaded by live oak trees. Gregg and Meredith chose décor that enhanced the elegance of the venue. Overall, Meredith imagined her wedding to be elegant, but not overly formal. For flowers, Meredith wanted something natural and organic. She chose neutral tones of peonies and garden roses and mixed in garland and other greenery. For their ceremony, they incorporated a scripture reading and communion, as a way to recognize the couple’s faith and what marriage meant to them. “We wanted people to feel really welcomed, and we wanted it to be about our marriage and us becoming one, and the romance of us and our story,” Meredith said. At the rehearsal dinner at Gregg’s parents’ lake house on Lake Austin, Gregg had a big job: the serenade. Dating back generations, Gregg’s family has carried on a Mexican tradition of the groom serenading his bride-to-be the night before the wedding. “That was one of the things I’d looked forward to the most,” Gregg said, “Because for me, it was like a right of passage as a man. To sing and to do that, live action in front of many men I’ve watched do that before, that was a big deal.” They decorated the lake house with long farmhouse tables, giving it a fairytale vibe. They had a margarita bar and mariachi band. Meredith and her bridesmaids watched Gregg and his groomsmen as he serenaded her with “Feet Don’t Touch the Ground” by Stoney LaRue. “He played that on the guitar and sang it to me,” Meredith said. “Here are 100 people there watching him, and it was so sweet.”

whole speech prepared, but of course I immediately forgot it when I got to my knee and the rest is history,” Josh says. Josh had hired a photographer to capture the sweet moment. Kelsey said “yes” and dropped to her knees in tears. “It was perfect in every way – rain and all,” she remembers. When the couple jumped into wedding planning, the city in which the stylish soiree would be held was decision number one. They ultimately decided to return to Austin for a short-distance destination wedding, and of course, it was where they got engaged. One of the most important vendors to book first was the wedding photographer. Kelsey and Josh enjoy dabbling in some amateur photography and love photos shot in low light. They found just what they were looking for with Two Pair Photography. Finding their venue was also at the top of the priority list. They wanted to be able to have the ceremony and reception at the same venue. When they checked out Brazos Hall in the heart of downtown Austin’s hotel district, they knew right away it was perfect. They loved the industrial look downstairs with long-leaf pine floors and brick walls, and the second floor was covered, so weather wouldn’t affect their big day. The couple envisioned a “desert urban, Southern California” look. They would achieve this with a combination of bright flowers popping against wood tables and modern geometric decorations. At half past four in the afternoon on April 30, 2016, three hundred friends and family members gathered to witness the marriage of Kelsey and Josh Barton. The ceremony was held upstairs in the covered, open-air space filled with cactus plants and a large rectangle arch of greenery and creamy flowers under which the bride and groom exchanged vows. One of Kelsey’s favorite parts of the day was before the ceremony when she prayed with her family and bridesmaids. “There were no cameras or videos. [It was] just me with my loved ones giving glory to God and asking for His guidance in every part of our marriage,” Kelsey remembers.

The bridesmaids were

elegant in floor-length robin’s egg blue gowns from J.Crew, and the men looked dapper in dark gray suits pants and vests. Josh was eagerly anticipating his bride to make her grand entrance. Kelsey shared a special moment with her dad after the wedding party had taken their places. “Then we came around the corner and saw all the faces of our friends and family. I thought, ‘wow, that’s a lot of eyeballs on me!’ But then I saw Josh, and everything else sort of melted away,” Kelsey remembers. The couple exchanged traditional vows in a sentimental ceremony. Kelsey’s lifelong pastor married them, and a close friend read scripture. Once the minister pronounced them

diamond ring they’d looked at almost a year before, and it burned a hole in his pocket as he thought of the perfect way to propose to Amy. They decided to go on a trip with her parents to Big Bend National Park in southwest Texas over New Year’s. January 1st was a Saturday, and the couple remembers it being very cold. Wes, Amy, and her dad bundled up to take a sixmile hike. By the time they made it to the end of the hike, they started taking pictures. It was beautiful. Wes set up his Go Pro to capture the scene. Then he asked Amy’s dad if he could take one last picture. That’s when Wes told Amy he had something he wanted to ask her. “I immediately covered my face and started crying like a baby,” Amy remembers. Wes asked her to pull down her scarf so he could see her face. With a big smile, he pulled out the sparkling ring and asked her to spend the rest of her life with him. Amy responded with a tearful and excited “yes!” “It was a good day,” Wes says. Later Amy’s mother got to join in the fun reliving the proposal as they looked through the photos Amy’s dad had taken of the big moment. One of the most important things for the couple in planning the wedding was the venue. They wanted a rustic look with lots of natural beauty. Their house is filled with plants, and they wanted the same for their wedding. When they did a walk-through at The Greenhouse at Driftwood, they knew it was the perfect venue for them. “It was absolutely to die for,” Amy remembers. The music was also important to the couple. They quickly booked Texas Professional DJ. Amy also knew she needed some guidance to make sure they big day flowed smoothly. “I think I’m a very organized person, but I thought it was really important to have a day of planner,” she says. The couple hired Highland Avenue Events, which gave them some peace of mind so they could just enjoy their day. At 5 pm on October 15, 2016, 200 friends and family members gathered to witness the marriage of Amy Gonzales and Wesley Nicholes. The weather was perfect, and the bride and groom had settled their nerves with a first look. The bridesmaids wore floor-length lilac gowns, and the groomsmen wore heather gray suits with red rose boutonnieres. The groom wore a more formal version with a vest. Escorted down the aisle by her father, the bride wore an ivory sweetheart strapless fit and flair gown with lace tulle overlay by Stella York. Amy skipped the traditional wedding march music and walked out to “Holy” by Florida Georgia Line. The ceremony was relatively short and sweet. The couple exchanged traditional vows before the officiant pronounced them husband and wife.

With a beautiful ring in hand, he got down on one knee and asked Annah to spend the rest of her life with him. “I had an idea it was coming. I was so excited and couldn’t wait for us to finally be married!” Annah remembers. Annah and Cody knew they wanted a brunch wedding. Brunch is their absolute favorite meal. They hired Brock + Co. Events to help coordinate the big day. “They were a perfect fit for us,” Annah says. The team got to work about two weeks after Annah and Cody got engaged. Annah is a pro having been in 18 weddings, so she knew what she wanted! After they took engagement photos in the fall of 2015, things picked up in January. Annah spent countless hours selecting garden-inspired details and tasty brunch food. On June 11, 2016, the sun peeked through the clouds. The morning was gorgeous for a wedding. Light shined through the beautiful stained glass windows of the church. The bride and groom were filled with pure joy to see each other for a “first look.” It was going to be the perfect day. At 10 a.m., about 140 friends and family members gathered at First Christian Church to witness the marriage of Annah Bennie and Cody Woodland. The bridesmaids wore long, elegant blush-colored sleeveless gowns by BHLDN, and the groomsmen wore sharp gray tuxes with bow ties. Escorted down the aisle by her father, the bride wore a stunning beaded A-line gown by Anna Campbell. “I loved the back of it. The jewels on it were so beautiful and made the dress so elegant. It was so unique and not like anything I had ever seen before,” Annah says. She wore her hair swept up with a long veil and her mother’s necklace and earrings. With a huge smile on her face, she looked adoringly at her soon-to-be husband. Cody was blown away with how beautiful his bride looked. Annah was thinking about how lucky she was getting to marry her best friend and “being so grateful to have this sweet moment of walking down the aisle” with her dad. “I don’t think it’s something you ever forget,” Annah says. The ceremony was traditional right down to the vows. Cody kissed his beautiful bride, and the beaming couple led the recessional out of the sanctuary. On the lawn of the Four Seasons downtown, guests waited with flutes of champagne in hand for the wedding party to arrive. Loved ones passed hors d’oeuvres and shared stories about the bride and groom. Once everyone arrived, Annah’s dad gave the blessing, and they dove in to the delicious

Location, Location, Location! What holds true in real estate certainly fits the bill when it comes to weddings. We understand that selecting a venue is hard, but figuring out your options should be easy!

From beautiful ballrooms, vineyards and mansions to fancy gardens, a rustic ranch and even an urban loft space, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve paid them all a visit in order to deliver you the facts about their facility to help you make that all-important location decision a little easier!

ABOUT WESTWOOD COUNTRY CLUB

The Westwood Club, established in 1955, has been owned and operated by its members since 1957. The original home that houses the Club masterfully blends the charm of early 1900’s architecture, picturesque surroundings and modern expansions to create a facility unique among Austin clubs. At the heart of the complex is the McClendon home, a medieval French mansion built in 1925 by Judge and Mrs. James W. McClendon. Its flagstone walkways, Mexican tile floors, hand painted ceilings, and native rock fireplace offer ambiance to special events.
