/ FROM THE PUBLISHERS /

ARCHITECTING THE WEDDING – THE EXPERIENTIAL FACTOR

We spent a few hours recently at a coffee shop visiting with a dear friend getting married. She shared her mood board for her wedding, complete with color scheme, fabric swatches and detailed descriptions of décor elements that gave us a very real sense for what we could expect to experience at her upcoming nuptials. Soft romantic candlelight around every turn, romantic florals, a muted but moody color palette, food to tempt the senses, dramatic draping, relaxed yet luxe seating, textured linens with subtle patterns, music to match the atmosphere…you get the idea. It was a vivid and visually beautiful reminder of how much weddings have evolved and how carefully they are architected specifically for the couple to be celebrated. It was also evident how much thoughtful and intentional planning had gone into every single design detail and how mindful the planner was of each experiential element from beyond what guests see, to what they would hear, smell, taste and ultimately feel and experience. That experiential factor – how guests FEEL – is what we all want them to remember, right? And it’s certainly no small feat to source the right mix of creative talent capable of making it memorable. Our friend expressed how diligently she studied the work of top creatives before making final selections on her vendor team that would breathe life into the celebration. Orchestrating the right creative mix of talent to pull off the wedding of our dreams can be a daunting task but it’s the very reason Brides of Austin showcases the creativity of vendors in the local marketplace through both editorial and real wedding features in the magazine + online and every single day via Instagram @bridesofaustin. If the gown is the foundation that dictates direction of your planning, you’ll fall in love with Untamed on page 62 — a wildly romantic, fashion-filled editorial shoot in the Hill Country featuring couture wedding gowns and nostalgic menswear. Then, pick the perfect venue with our Luxe Locations venue guide on page 203 where we give you the inside scoop on Austin’s best wedding venues complete with pricing, capacity and amenities. Get endless inspiration through a variety of Love Scenes starting on page 102, featuring the designs of top planners from across the region that styled the hottest new rental items available. Meet the bakers that create extraordinary confections with The Sweet Life on page 187 and get inspired by luxe invitation suites influenced by Austin venues on page 143. Beauty pros bring to life stunning looks inspired by the floral artistry of the best wedding florists in the region on page 156. Finally, a collection of over 100 pages of Austin weddings offer countless ideas and amazing vendor teams that continuously create wow-worthy weddings. Whether it’s picking the perfect gown or venue, sourcing amazing décor or finding the most amazing photographer or planner, we invite you to follow along and let Brides of Austin help with the architecting of your perfect day.

reservations. She packed her bags, still hoping Tim might join her, but he was unable to make it and drove her to the airport. She said goodbye, expecting to see him several days later back in Texas. But Tim had something up his sleeve. After he took Savannah to the airport and she was safely on her plane, he rushed home, packed a bag, got a very restless few hours of sleep and boarded a plane for Italy the next morning. Besides Tim’s sense of humor, she loves how thoughtful he is, so his surprise incognito trip to Italy was not completely out of the realm of possibility, but certainly a huge surprise. Jet lagged and a little nervous, Tim made his way to the square where he knew Savannah thought she was going to have dinner with a colleague and his wife. When Savannah got there, though, through a sea of people, she made out the silhouette of someone familiar. He looked like Tim, and he was looking right back at her. “It didn’t make sense to me at all that he would be there, so it took me a second to soak it in that it was really him. Then… bliss,” Savannah remembers. She made her way through the crowd to Tim. He got down on one knee and asked Savannah to spend the rest of her life with him. Of course, she said yes! They celebrated with glasses of prosecco in a café they’d been to on a trip together two years before. After their incredible Italy trip, the couple returned to Texas to celebrate Christmas in Houston with family. A few weeks later, they started to focus on wedding planning and hired the experts at Belle Soul Weddings to coordinate all the details of the big day. At first, the venue was up in the air. Everything was on the table, from Italy, their beloved overseas getaway, to a handful of places in Texas. They decided to keep the wedding in Texas for the convenience of their guests and the ease of planning. Once they visited Villa Del Lago, they fell in love. They knew with its creamy architecture, water, and lush greenery, they could make it feel like Italy with the charm and hospitality of Austin, Texas. Friends and family arrived from all over the country to Austin for the wedding. Most people came in several hours before the wedding party attended the rehearsal dinner and other friends savored barbeque and drinks on a mild Austin night. It was sure to be a weekend to remember. On the day of the wedding on April 8, Savannah and Tim spent time with their attendants before arriving at Villa Del Lago for the 5:00 ceremony. The couple wanted to throw a big party and kept the ceremony short and sweet. In fact, it was a standing ceremony with every detail heartfelt. Savannah was stunning in an Alon Livne lace

the

wedding

planning

was

instantaneous and within two weeks they had found the perfect venue to fit their vision. The Contemporary Austin Laguna Gloria was the ideal location for their outdoor ceremony and reception and would focus on an ethereal, botanical twist on natural beauty. “I looked at Laguna Gloria because it’s outdoors but it’s not rustic,” Gentry explains. “It still feels elegant like you’re at a formal place but you’re still outside. A lot of the things we decided on for colors, table placements, florals and the cake was pretty simple because we didn’t want to upstage the beauty of the place we were at.” The couple spent the rest of the summer hashing out plans for their March nuptials. As the planning continued, their vision for the big day slowly started to shift into place. Gentry fell in love with an almond-white dress that featured a long chiffon skirt and a rose gold inlay on the bodice that matched her engagement ring. “Whenever I put it on it was like instant,” she says. “I just felt so comfortable in it and I just felt like me. I put it on and I was like ‘Okay this is it, I love this.’” The bridesmaids were each given champagne-colored earrings and were told to choose their own dress to accentuate the natural and relaxed wedding theme. Dark wood farm tables, a runner full of greenery and gold-brass candelabras were easy reception choices. Everything was set up for an outdoor wedding but when their big day came Mother Nature decided to bring the gift of rain. Nothing was set up the way they envisioned, but it didn’t matter to them at the end of the day. “Even though we spent the time and we were so sold on this idea of what it was going to look and feel like, the day ended up completely different,” Gentry says. “It was still wonderful and no less than what we had dreamt it up to be.” One thing that the rain did not hinder was the love felt that evening. The couple chose to not participate in a first look, and waited until their eyes met in a sea of umbrellas. The bride walked down the aisle to “Like a Dawn” by the Oh Hello’s, a song shown from the biblical perspective of Adam as he sees Eve for the first time. Timothy says it was like a dream as he watched his future wife walking down the aisle towards him. “Seeing the woman that God has chosen for me to be my companion, my wife for the rest of my life and someone to care for standing at the top

beautiful castles in Sintra, but nothing felt right. “The first one or two were super touristy and there were people everywhere,” he says. “I’m ready to propose and it just wasn’t the moment Sarah and I would’ve wanted.” While Sarah had no idea that she was about to get engaged, she did notice that Jonathan was acting strange. “I asked him several times if he wasn’t feeling well, he was super pale and super nervous,” she says. “I literally thought he was feeling sick, but I had no idea!” Jonathan had a stroke of luck and saw a woman with a camera standing in front of the Moorish castle, one of Portugal’s oldest, and got down on one knee. The woman immediately caught on and snapped dozens of photos for the newlyengaged couple. Since Jonathan and Sarah were living in Austin while Sarah finished grad school, they decided it was the perfect place to get married and show off their new home. They also opted to have a long engagement and decided April 2017 was enough time to plan their outdoor wedding. That month was particularly special to Sarah – it was the birthday month of her mother who had passed away in 2010. As a longlasting memory of her mom, Sarah’s wedding band was crafted with stones from a ring her mother wore. She also wore a pair of her mother’s earrings on the big day, which perfectly matched her mermaid gown. The gown featured a sheer illusion bodice and lace applique. Sarah says it definitely fit her modern wedding theme. “I really wanted something sleek but still classic,” she says. “I just thought the lace on the dress was so beautiful and moves so well. It just blended everything I wanted into one.” Sarah’s brother and a few bridesmaids actually showed up at the store to see her in the dress, making for a perfect surprise. Sarah and Jonathan fell in love with The Greenhouse at Driftwood in Austin. It had everything they were looking for in a venue and made it easy to complement the natural beauty with elegant florals. The couple put their ideas into the hands of Gypsy Floral, which was one of Sarah’s favorite vendors to work with. She didn’t give them a lot of guidance, but wanted everything to be colorful and organic. “When I saw my bouquet I actually cried,” she gushes. “Everything they did just turned out amazingly well. They did a great job of interpreting what I didn’t even know I wanted.” The wedding reception was full of small flower arrangements and cacti in glass jars. Another big hit at the reception was the massive dessert bar, which Sarah credits her father who made most of the selections. Jonathan says all of the vendors

C AT C H Philadelphia Eagles linebacker and University of Texas grad weds college sweetheart in stunning Austin wedding f you look up the player statistics for IPhiladelphia Eagles linebacker Jordan Hicks, you may notice his major achievements on the field. During the 2016 football season he started all 16 games, collected 85 tackles and was named the NFLPA’s Brand Ambassador for the team. But if you ask Jordan his favorite moment from the past year it has nothing to do with football and everything to do with his true love Ivana Rodriguez. Ivana developed a crush on Jordan while watching him play for the University of

Texas Longhorns, but had never met him. When Ivana finally met him in person she immediately started to blush. A mutual friend introduced them while they were hanging out on campus. Just 24 hours later, Jordan “mysteriously” showed up while Ivana and her friend were at the library. Ivana says her dream man was exactly like she envisioned. “Everything that I imagined…he was that and more,” she says. “He was just so sweet and so respectful. We hit it off right away.”

“That whole day, we went into it knowing that it’s not just about us. All of those people had influenced us in some way to get us to that point.”

Over the next four years, the couple became inseparable. A typical date was always something low-key like dinner and a movie or hanging out with family. When the couple wasn’t enjoying a night in, they spent time traveling. In June of 2016 Ivana and Jordan went to one of their favorite vacation spots, Turks and Caicos, which would soon turn into an unforgettable trip. Jordan had planned a private boat tour and told Ivana that they would go snorkeling and have a romantic dinner, but the plans were actually fake and all part of Jordan’s secret plan to propose. With the sea surrounding them, Jordan got down on one knee and asked Ivana to be his forever. The couple spent the rest of the day traveling to private islands and taking engagement photos with a secret photographer who posed as a crew member on the boat. Shortly after, a group of dolphins decided to join in the couple’s celebration, making it another unexpected surprise that even Jordan wasn’t expecting. “The dolphins are swimming up next to the boat and checking us out,” he remembers. “We’re like oh, this is so cool this is awesome. The next thing you know the captain is like ‘You guys have to jump in. This only happens once in a lifetime, you have to do it.’ That’s the last thing we

thought he was going to say.” Luckily, the couple had packed swimsuits for the fake snorkel excursion, and jumped head first into their upcoming adventure. Just a few weeks later, Jordan was preparing to head back to Philadelphia to begin training for the upcoming football season. Ivana joined him midAugust and decided to stay for most of the season, forcing the couple to begin their wedding plans nearly 1,600 miles away from their venue in Austin. Since Ivana and Jordan met in Austin and Ivana’s family lived there, it was easy to choose the Omni Barton Creek Resort and Spa for their June wedding. “It was the first location we went to go visit and we absolutely loved it,” Ivana gushed. “We loved the people, the service. Everything was just beautiful and we just thought it would be perfect for our day.” Ivana and Jordan didn’t travel down to Austin to start planning until October so they enlisted the help of Austin-based Brock & Co. events. During the couple’s busy schedule of football season, marriage counseling and bible study, they were constantly talking, texting and emailing the planners. “There were times that we felt like we were so behind just because we hadn’t done anything,” Jordan says. “The planners were so on top of it and we were able to stay on schedule because of them.”

By the end of football season, the save the dates were already sent and the couple could finally return to Austin to begin the wedding planning. During the planning season, Ivana stopped in Houston for one of the most important wedding decisions – finding her wedding gown. She was set on wearing a dress by Israelbased designer Galia Lahav. Every dress Ivana tried on was beautiful but when she tried one particular dress, she fell in love. “As soon as I walked out in this dress everyone that was there was just like ‘Oh my gosh that’s the one, it’s stunning and beautiful’” Ivana remembers. “Even girls that were trying on wedding dresses wanted to try my dress on. It was so easy and fit perfect.” Once the dress was found, Ivana focused on the smaller details. Ivana went straight to her Pinterest board for inspiration and wanted lots of peonies, pinks and golds. Her hope was to create something glam and romantic with candles everywhere and lush florals. Jordan says the goal was to make all of the guests feel special. “I think we really wanted it to feel very intimate very family-oriented and personalized,” he says. “That whole day, we went into it knowing that it’s not just about us. All of those people had influenced us in some way to get us to that point.” When the big day finally arrived, Ivana was surprised that the nerves didn’t hit her. She says knowing that the planners had everything in control put her at ease and allowed her to enjoy the day. The emotions finally hit Ivana during the ceremony. “I was so happy to be walking down the aisle,” she says. “We locked eyes and I started crying once I reached Jordan. Walking down the aisle was beautiful and just seeing everyone looking at me and just locking eyes with Jordan was so much fun. I was just so happy that this was happening.” When it came time for Jordan to see his bride walk down the aisle, he couldn’t help but get choked up. “It is an emotional moment,” he says. “Whether you’re ready to cry or not, a flood of emotions just hits you. It was such an amazing experience and something I’ll never forget.” The rest of the evening was filled with an array of fun surprises. Guests enjoyed the couple’s signature drink the “Hicks-arita” - a twist on the classic margarita. Family and friends were treated to burnt-orange and white popcorn for party favors, a shout-out to the couple’s alma mater. The couple paid homage to Ivana’s Mexican heritage by featuring a mariachi band for cocktail hour, and then pulled off the ultimate surprise by planning a choreographed salsa dance together. “I was against it up until like an hour before,” Jordan laughs. “I was like ‘Oh my gosh, this can either go really good or really bad. Dancing isn’t really my thing so it really took me out of my shell to do that and it was really amazing.” The evening ended with a confetti exit and a sea of pom-poms that allowed the guests to act like the newlywed’s personal team of cheerleaders. For their wedding day as a whole, Ivana and Jordan wanted to make it evident that Christ was their central foundation and that their faith is an important part of their everyday life. “Everything was very intimate and personal and we tried to include God in everything,” Ivana says. “Whether it was through the different prayers we did, and we even had Jordan’s teammate bless the food and it meant a lot to us. For everyone to see who we are and just include our friends and family in that it’s important to us.” other local vendors: Barton Creek Resort + Spa, Ivory Bridal, Townsley Designs, La Tavola Fine Linen Rental, Hill Country Strings, Marichi Amor, DJ Gatsby, Cornucopia Popcorn, Lola Beauty, Jen Dillender Photography, Soto & Co, Wes Raitt Photo & Cinema, Russell Korman Fine Jewelry, Diamonds & Watches

One of my favorite t hings to do wit h a design is to accent t hings

wit hout overpowering, whic h is what I did wit h t his bar. I love t he organic feel of Austin and wanted to put somet hing toget her t hat was realistic and f itting. Most of t he reception time is spent on t he dance floor and by t he bar, so I of ten create some fun bac kdrop for one or t he ot her. I love showcasing t he small details like t he signature coc ktail. When you have Deep Eddy’s signature coc ktails, you must showcase t hem!

I wanted to create a modern take on a ver y et hereal design. The

overall goal was to create a look t hat had ver y sof t lines but was still bursting wit h texture. When I found out we were going to have t he shoot at Wildflower Center, I knew I wanted to take advantage of t he gorgeous proper ty. That got me star ted down t he design pat h of grasses, wildflowers and unique textures for t he tablescape.

MANDY MILLICAN, MODERN WHIMSY EVENTS

I wanted to showcase a color t hat I don’t gravitate towards

ver y of ten: pink. By keeping t he rest of t he palette clean and simple, t he pink really has a c hance to shine, wit hout feeling overbearing. And I love teal, so using it as an accent color, even minimally, is always fun.

W

hen I was a little girl, my Aunt Winnie would make the most

beautiful and delicious birthday cakes for my parties! So when I saw my local craft store offering basic cake decorating classes, I thought it would be fun to learn. What started as a hobby, quickly turned into a full-time cake business! My cake designs are clean, soft, and romantic, but my from-scratch cake flavors resembling good home cooking are what I feel helps me to stand out. A wedding cake needs to be equally delicious as it is beautiful!

MY FAVORITE PART IS STANDING BACK AFTER I’VE PLACED THE FLOWERS ON THE CAKE AND TAKING IN THE BEAUTY OF THE ENTIRE ROOM; SEEING ALL THE DETAILS AND THE COUPLE’S VISION COME TOGETHER P E R F E C T LY !

any of us fell into bakery life accidentally, but

loved it once we got here and have never left! It’s such a creative and versatile world, and through cake we have opportunity to experiment and play with different designs and techniques. Since most of us have a background in art or pastry, we love the freedom and fluidity that comes with cake design. It’s also such an amazing way to use art and creativity to create and emphasize special and memorable moments – particularly through wedding cake!

APRIL WEILBACHER + ASHLEY LANDERMAN

ur childhood was filled with crafting! From puff paint t-shirts to

grapevine wreaths, Mom Tart always had us working on a creative project. Cooking was always something we did as a family and when our grandmother passed away Ashley took over the duty of making her red velvet cake for birthdays and the like. When we opened 2tarts Bakery, we started with simple, rustic cake designs but as our skill set grew, we were able to apply our skills as artists to cakes.

WE ARE INSPIRED BY COLORS AND TEXTURES WE SEE IN FASHION, MODERN ART AND P O P C U LT U R E . W E B O T H H AV E E X T E N S I V E LY T R AI N E D I N THE FINE ARTS FROM OIL PAINTING TO POTTERY AND BRING THAT SENSIBILITY TO OUR CAKE DESIGNS.

From beautiful ballrooms, vineyards and mansions to fancy gardens, a rustic ranch and even an urban loft space, we’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!

fton and Travers met during college while overseas on a summer mission trip. After

a summer of friendship, the two decided to give dating a try when they returned home. Travers pulled off the perfect surprise when it was time to propose to Afton. Travers tricked Afton into thinking that it was his sister’s birthday party, complete with a sign saying Happy Birthday Maggie and catering all set up! Travers took her down to the cliffs by the lake where they were supposedly having the party. Little to Afton’s knowledge, a photographer was hiding in the bushes and their friends and family were waiting up at the venue for a different celebration. As Travers proposed, Afton was shocked and totally surprised, still thinking it was his sister’s birthday party. She says it was the best way to say Yes! The couple had a semi-destination wedding in the heart of Austin. The ceremony was held at Central Christian Church followed by a reception at Brazos Hall. Afton says the most memorable part of her day was being filled with so much emotion and

excitement walking down the aisle to Travers, something she will never forget.

rittany and Darryl's love story began while they were attending college at San

Diego State. As they spent more time together, the couple fell in love. It wasn’t long until they found themselves vacationing in the Bahamas. On Christmas Eve, they decided to celebrate with a day trip to a private beach. After popping the champagne, Darryl popped

the question! One big yes and 100 kisses later, it sank in for Brittany that she was going to be a bride. The couple had their wedding in Downtown Austin where they celebrated all weekend long! Vintage flare paired with a modern, minimalist twist made their beautiful spring wedding one for the books. The South Congress Hotel was the perfect place to make their vision a reality. Brittany especially loved the space because it was a blank canvas; the modern, simplistic look gave her the freedom to express herself and fill it with anything!

year and a half into their romance after selling their homes, quitting their jobs

and leaving Texas to travel the world, Morgan and Wade didn’t own much. The pair explored so much together including dining at illegal hot spots in Lisbon, sleeping under the stars in the Sahara Desert, gorging on pizza in Florence and bicycling through Cambodia’s century-old temples. Three months into their backpacking trip they made it to Positano, Italy. Wade planned a day of hiking that would end with him and his queen on the top of the mountain behind their bustling hotel. After a long trek, the pair finally made it and found the perfect rock to snuggle on and enjoy the view. As clouds floated beneath their feet, the couple took in the breathtaking scenery and reminisced on their trip. Shortly after, Wade got down on one knee and asked Morgan if she would

amie and William first met when they were children attending a summer church

camp. Considering middle school was a little young to get serious, the two decided to wait until after graduating from college to actually begin dating. Of course, once they did they never stopped, and now they are man and wife! Jamie and William chose to celebrate their big day at Hotel Granduca. Right in the middle of the rolling hills of Texas Hill Country, the breathtaking views from the property and beautiful Tuscaninspired courtyard was perfect for the elegant and relaxed feel the couple desired. The bride and groom wanted to enhance the setting by creating a romantic feeling with lots of organic detail. They selected a color palette of light gray, cream and pale blue to

erika and Harry met during their college days and instantly hit it off. After four years

of dating, Harry surprised Jerika with a romantic backyard proposal complete with white rose petals and glowing candles. When it came time to plan the wedding, the couple chose the Sacred Oaks venue at Camp Lucy for a stunning outdoor ceremony. It was the perfect place to welcome their friends and family for a weekend of celebration. The ceremony flowed into cocktail hour on the terrace and lawn where guests enjoyed champagne, wine and the signature gin cocktail named after their dog Piper. One of the couple’s favorite touches was their custom family crest which was found on invitations, the tent wall, menus, programs, welcome boxes, and the best version of the crest featuring their dog was found on the cocktail

rin and Nick met in Austin after her friend moved into his house. The two started

hanging out as friends and began dating in February 2014 after about a year of friendship. Nick was moving to Dallas for law school when Erin quit her job and decided to move back to California and travel for a year. Not wanting to be long-distance, he applied to California law schools and moved with her. While living in San Diego, the pair continued dating and decided

they wanted to move back to Austin, so they did. Erin had just returned from a trip to Ecuador with her dad when Nick seized the opportunity to ask for her hand in marriage. Erin’s dad thought she knew Nick was asking and wound up telling her over breakfast. Soon after, Nick began the process of having a ring made. Erin knew creating a ring would take a while, but just knowing it was coming made her obnoxiously impatient. Because of her stubbornness, Nick went against his original plan and proposed to Erin on their balcony overlooking the ocean with the couple’s fur babies at their side. other local vendors: Greenbelt DJ • Southern Beauty by Jessica • Meldeen • Haley Rynn Ringo Photography • Cakewalk Films • Terra Vista Strings • Austin Classic Limo • Gabriel’s • Say Cheese Photo Booth Rentals • Bee Lavish Vintage Rentals

ose and Andrew met in college while they were both studying theater. After catching

each other’s eye for a whole semester, it took Rose casting Andrew in a play she was directing for them to really connect. Weeks of rehearsals allowed their friendship to develop until the pair went on their first date. That night, they realized the friendship and love they had stumbled upon. When it was time for the proposal, Rose traveled home to visit her family. Andrew was supposed to accompany her but instead he, unknowingly to Rose, stayed behind to plan the proposal. After some time apart Rose couldn’t wait to get home to Andrew and booked the earliest flight. Andrew was very nervous and decided the night before that he couldn’t wait until the dinner he had planned to pop the question.

Feat her & Twine

As Rose got off her bumpy flight, she raced to the baggage claim to find Andrew waiting and holding a sign with her name on it. When he flipped the sign over, it read, “Will you marry me?” Rose was completely surprised! They ended the celebration at the restaurant where Andrew had originally planned to propose! other local vendors: Verdes Catering • Color Theory Collective • LoLa Beauty • The Greenhouse at Driftwood • Grissom’s Fine Jewelry • L’Avventura Dolce • Austin Classic Limo • PhotoHouse Films

allie and Trevor first met at a patio bar. They were instantly drawn to each other’s

striking looks and charming personalities. Trevor boldly asked for Callie’s number, and it was only a few weeks later when he made plans to take her on their first official date. Everything began to align and the rest was truly history! Trevor, a home builder in Dallas, creatively planned a proposal that, unbeknownst to Callie, gave her a glimpse into their future. On a gorgeous Texas evening, he and Callie were on their way to dinner when he suddenly diverted the path and made a stop at his new subdivision to walk the lot lines. They got out and walked through piles of dirt and grass to a spot that would soon become unique to them both. Trevor began explaining a layout, pointing to where the porch, kitchen and living room would be. At

the University of Richmond where they became casual acquaintances. It wasn’t until their junior year that the two really connected. While participating in a study abroad program, they packed up their lives and moved to Brisbane, Australia; it was here that

they sparked a connection. They started seriously dating after college while beginning their careers in Richmond. Because Barrett knows how close Kaitlin is to her family, he knew it was important to have them involved with the proposal. Just after moving to Austin, Kaitlin’s family decided to spend Christmas with them. One afternoon, Barrett miraculously got everyone up to Mount Bonnell where he popped the question. With photographers and champagne hiding in the bushes, Barrett got down on one knee and asked Kaitlin to marry him; of course, she said yes! other local vendors: Baked by Amy’s • La Tavola Fine Linen Rental • Andrea Juarez Hair + Makeup • Le San Michele • Makenzi Laine Professional Makeup Artist • R&R Limousine & Bus • Bird Dog Wedding • Ears with Beers • Bonne Nouvelle Design • Elizabeth Street Cafe

annah and Sean first met all the way back in junior high. The two were

acquaintances, but didn’t really get to know each other until high school. Tale as old as time, the first flame was sparked by an instant message on MySpace. However, in this fairytale, it was the beauty who made the first move! As you can assume, the rest is history. Hannah had always told Sean that she wanted an intimate proposal. One day in December, he took her out on a night cruise across Town Lake in Austin. The two sipped wine and enjoyed the view of the waters. At the end of the trip, everyone departed, but Hannah and Sean lagged behind to snap a quick picture. It was just the two of them on Sophie Epton Photography

the rooftop deck. The next thing Hannah knew, Sean was down on one knee asking for her hand in marriage. The boat then set off for a private midnight cruise. The entire proposal was nothing but perfect!

While on a spring break trip in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico they took a private boat cruise out to the Arches of Cabo. On the boat with the picturesque backdrop, Harrison asked Courtney to be his wife! The couple wanted a semi-destination wedding. Being from Dallas, Austin felt like the perfect place. Deciding on a venue was easy! They loved the proximity of the Barr Mansion to downtown Austin coupled with the quiet atmosphere, the perfect balance

for their wedding. The day was filled with lots of love and laughs including the intimate first look. Courtney and Harrison read personal vows to each other during their first look which added such a special touch to the day. As Courtney walked down the aisle, she wasn’t as nervous as she assumed she would be; she was only focused on Harrison and her excitement to begin their lives as one. Her advice to new brides is to choose everything wisely, but make sure to enjoy it all!

Just days before Christmas, Mitchell popped the question. He got Kathryn’s family in on the plan by having them play along with the idea that they were going to a family dinner. Just when everyone was getting ready to head out the door, Mitchell asked if they could first take a picture together in front of the Christmas tree. When Kathryn turned, she found Mitchell down on one knee in the room full of family. After saying yes, Kathryn found out the dinner was nonexistent and that all their friends

Unfortunately, a jeweler that Blair did not actually purchase a ring from sent a “we’re sorry you didn’t go with us this time, but we hope you come back in the future” card in the mail. Rachel, who never checked the mail, decided that was a good day to start. When it was finally revealed that the jig was up, Blair made some changes in the eleventh hour to keep the element of surprise. On a low-key evening at home, Blair proposed on the anniversary of the day they rekindled their relationship — a few weeks before the cabin trip. Rachel was indeed surprised.

encouraged the unsuspecting Olivia to join him on a development day and suggested they work from Mozart’s Coffee Roasters, which was nothing out of the ordinary. Blake enjoys software development and coding, so to assist him in his proposal, he created a photo-journal website of their story. When Olivia took out her work computer, he suggested she look at something else while pulling up their website. He began to scroll through the website’s pictures, highlighting memorable spots throughout their

relationship. Traveling down memory lane, Olivia was drawn to tears seeing pictures of the very two movie seats they sat in on their first date in high school, the place they first expressed their love for one another, the spot where they would pass one another on the University of Texas campus (even though they weren’t dating), and much more. With each photo, Olivia was in complete awe that he felt as connected to each of the spots as she did. At the end of the slideshow, Blake got down on one knee and asked Olivia to marry him.

SUSAN ANDREANO & AUSTIN PODOWSKI

S

usan and Austin’s proposal was like something straight off the silver screen. Susan

was woken up to a surprise trip to Mexico! On the second day of their trip, the two were picked up by an SUV and taken to a helicopter pad. Susan was terrified – but equally excited. As the couple soared through the air during their helicopter tour, the words, “Will You Marry Me” were written in the sand below them. Susan quickly turned to Austin and he confirmed those words were meant just for her! 25,000 feet in the air, she said yes! The trip was the proposal of Susan's dreams. Not to mention, Austin is a short film director and had the connections to have someone capture the entire scene like a

movie! The couple celebrated their big day at The Union on Eighth, an auto body shop that has been transformed into a quaint wedding venue. Polished concrete and exposed beams contribute to the space’s modern industrial style. Susan and Austin were married on May 28, 2016.

TRACE THURMAN & ANDREW ARRIAGA

A

ndrew and Trace met through mutual friends in October 2010. Knowing now how

different their personalities are, they look back and laugh when they talk about the first time they met at a dive bar’s karaoke night. At the time, Trace was still enjoying the college lifestyle, and Andrew was beginning his career as a young professional. Their mutual love of horror movies took their relationship from casual hangouts to official dating status. Many karaoke outings and movie nights later, Andrew finally agreed to make things official with Trace on April 11, 2011. After years filled with steak dinners and bottles of wine, TV binge nights and film festivals — and a growing love — the couple developed an unshakeable bond. Trace proposed to Andrew on January 31, 2016. Trace and Andrew decided to tie the knot at The Mansion. Located in the West

atalie never imagined that her college accounting class would be where she’d find

true love. While she was working in Austin during the winter break of 2007, her friend threw a party that Esa just so happened to attend. His hair immediately caught her eye, prompting her to go up to him and asking a question that didn’t leave the best first impression. A few weeks later when school started, Natalie walked into her accounting class and saw Esa sitting in the front row. This time, she asked if he wanted to sit in the back with a few friends of hers...he gladly accepted. They bonded over the lessons of financial responsibility and a year later, on his 21st birthday he asked her on a date. Six years after they started dating the two were traveling off the coast of Malaysia to the Perhentian Islands. They were staying at a secluded sea turtle sanctuary where every

spend Thanksgivings with the Herbolds since they lived close to the Academy. Despite their families being familiar with one another for years, Michaela had never met Ben in person. The pair finally met at Trenton’s wedding at the rehearsal dinner. The next night at the reception, Ben asked for the last dance. The rest is history! Ben was on deployment in Sicily, Italy, for six months. He had five days of leave and for Michaela’s graduation present, she got to visit him. Ben told Michaela to get dressed for a nice dinner in Taormina, which is a neighboring town. After dinner, the couple explored the city Jen Dillender Photography

and went to an Ancient Greek Theater overlooking the coast and the city of Taormina. Ben tricked her into thinking they were taking a timed picture, but he was secretly filming the whole proposal! What she didn’t know was that she had transported her own engagement ring overseas! Michaela’s mom had made Ben’s favorite snack – candied pecans – and hid the engagement ring in the bag.

ayton and Dylan’s story began on the water of Lake McQueeney as teenagers,

but didn’t turn into love until six years later in the Colorado mountains. When it was time to propose, Dylan planned a surprise dog-sledding trip while they were back in the mountains for Valentine’s Day. It was the perfect surprise for the animal lover and nature junkie. When the wedding planning began, Payton and Dylan struggled to find a venue that was available to accommodate their 500 guests. Much to their surprise,

TINA TONG & RASHAD RAHMAN

T

ina and Rashad first met in 2010. They were just two young Texans who were

serendipitously united in New York City. After dating for a few years, Rashad decided to pop the question in the middle of the couple’s West Texas road trip. Big Bend National Park was the perfect backdrop for Rashad to ask Tina to be his forever! That February, the two had the wedding of their dreams. Originally, Tina and Rashad wanted their wedding to reflect their engagement: West Texas with a modern spin. However, that concept only stood as their launching point. In the end, their wedding ended up to be more tropical with a hint of circus flair. Overall, it truly reflected the couple’s personality through its charming quirkiness! Bird Dog Wedding and Loot Rentals did a beautiful job helping this vision come to life by draping

hris and Alex first met during Alex’s junior year of high school. At this point in their

lives, the only romantic experience the two shared together was taking the same limo to the prom, however they each had a date that wasn’t each other. Alex and Chris remained friends throughout high school until they went their separate ways for college. It wasn’t until the end of college when the two reunited and decided to begin dating. After four years together, three of which were long distance, Chris decided to pop the question.

One Monday in December, he picked up Alex for a surprise dinner date at Juliet Italian Kitchen. After enjoying a delicious meal, they strolled to the House of Wine to end their evening; however, Alex had no idea just how sweet that trip would be. While cozied up in a corner booth, enjoying each other’s company, in between sips of wine and bites of dark chocolate Chris proclaimed his love for Alex and asked her to be his wife. Alex and Chris were married at Prospect House on August 13, 2016.

oe and Reema met in 2013 during their second year of medical school. Reema’s

roommate introduced them and the two soon became fast friends. Reema sat next to Joe every day, mostly because Reema needed help with the pop quizzes but slowly the friendship evolved into a relationship. The couple officially started dating in March 2014 and fell in love soon after! Joe planned a trip to Enchanted Rock in Fredericksburg, Texas on December 19, 2015. The couple just finished their last residency interviews, and Joe wanted to enjoy a fun weekend together before heading back to Fort Worth to finish their semester of medical school. As they made their way up to the top of the mountain, Reema noticed Joe kept nervously checking his phone. Gloria Goode Photography

When they finally made it to the top of the mountain, Joe took a ring box he had been hiding out of his pocket. Joe expressed his love for Reema, and proposed right then and there! Joe later said that he had been texting their family and friends, who were waiting to surprise the couple at the bottom of Enchanted Rock.

working up the courage, she made her way over to the cute guy whose eye she had been catching all night, and they immediately hit it off. It took three weeks to go on their first date, but they have been inseparable ever since. When it was time to propose, Rudy pulled off the perfect surprise for Kristin! Kristin had spent the day getting pampered with a girlfriend and was running late to the dinner with Rudy and friends, so Rudy asked her to meet him at the friend’s house. When she walked in the door, she saw Rudy down on one need while some of their closest lacrosse kids were holding signs saying,

Thankfully, Brycen hired a professional photographer to capture this special day.

To this day, he won’t let her forget it! After a few years of dating, Preston took Adrianna to Mount Bonnell to take photos with his family. In the middle of taking photos with the beautiful Lake Austin as their background, Preston got down on one knee and popped the question! Of course, she said yes! Adrianna and Preston’s wedding day was held at Canyonwood Ridge. Neutral and burgundy floral arrangements filled the picture perfect, romantic, hill country venue. The beautiful windows and unique light fixtures inside the building portrayed the elegance they were going for, and the stone and wood accents added a country touch.

Embracing a rich fall palette for their November wedding, Allison and James selected deep colors to build from. Deep mauve velvet linens paired with varying accents of steel blue and blueberry. The lush florals highlighted a wide spectrum of mauves with added pops of creams and greens. Blues were incorporated through tiny details such as the ribbons and paper goods.

The owners of the gym, and now close friends, encouraged Craig to drop by during the noon class, and the rest was history. Since M’Kensie and Craig fell in love at the gym, it was only fitting to go back to where it all started. M’Kensie and Craig had both just finished a grueling workout when M’Kensie went over to check on Craig. There, he crawled up onto one knee and asked her to marry him. She of course said yes!

rooke was in her hometown and had planned a fun couple of days spent with her best friends. While one friend called frantically saying her car had broken down. Once she arrived, her best friend Alyssa instructed Brooke to hop out and follow her on foot. Brooke noticed her friend whose car broke down had been joined by her college roommate. To Brooke’s surprise, each friend read a letter about how much she means to them, and how much they love her and CJ’s relationship. A little further down the same path stood CJ’s parents, who also read letters to Brooke. Next Brooke’s brother, then her parents, and then finally Alyssa stopped to read her letter and ended it with, “Now it’s time to walk the rest of the path alone.” Brooke followed a path of red rose petals that led to a small cove filled with hundreds of lit candles, flowers and a wooden cross with CJ waiting at the end. Both in tears, CJ got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.

Immediately hitting it off, the two began spending a lot of time together, hiking, swimming, camping and road tripping. After falling head over heels in love, Hunter planned the most thoughtful proposal. It was the weekend of the SEC Championship Game, and Alabama was playing for the title. Mathilde was also traveling there not only for the game, but for a baby shower as well! After arriving in town, Mathilde went out to eat with some girlfriends and little did she know they were all in on the surprise! Hunter showed up at the restaurant, completely catching Mathilde off guard. He had made plans to spend the weekend with her, taking her to Tuscaloosa the very next day.

his couple’s love story began when Stephanie was introduced to Chris by her college roommate at University of Texas. After briefly meeting, Chris invited Stephanie to a Christmas party in 2008 in Houston. It didn’t take long for Chris and Stephanie to be smitten with each other, choosing to date long distance for years to come. On the day of the proposal, Chris caught Stephanie by surprise on a casual walk in Memorial Park. As she gazed at the beautiful scenery of the bayou, Stephanie turned around to find Chris on one knee! The perfect proposal led to an even more perfect wedding at the Westwood Country Club in Austin on April 8, 2017. The bride and groom hosted both an intimate ceremony and joyous reception with their family and friends. The evening was full of classic elegance and featured a gorgeous blend of light blue, white, green and peach hues. Commemorating an exquisite evening, the newlyweds jetted away in a ski boat on Lake Austin.

organ and Job dated for a year and a half and knew they were heading toward marriage. On Saturday, May 14, 2016, Morgan woke up just like any normal day. After going to lunch with her mom, the doorbell rang. It was her sister who lives in New York! She told Morgan to get ready and that she had a surprise for her. They got in the car and Morgan’s sister handed her two letters from kids that she sponsors and visits regularly in Africa. They had drawn pictures of Morgan and Job on their wedding day. Morgan was dropped off at a special place for her and Job where her best friend was waiting for her with another note from another sponsor child. This continued throughout Austin, seeing new beloved faces and receiving letters at each stop. Friends and family from Missouri, Georgia, Illinois and New York flew in to make Job’s proposal oh-so-special! The last stop was, of course, Job. Overlooking Lake Austin, Job got down on one knee and asked Morgan to be his forever!

laire and Carson have shared the purest love for one another for many years. After establishing a foundation of friendship, Carson decided he would try and take their relationship to the next level. When the two were in the tenth grade, Carson made the bold move and asked Claire out on a date to Amy’s Ice Creams; Claire gladly accepted the invitation and has been Carson’s ice cream date ever since! These high school sweethearts decided on forever in a setting with elegant European ambiance. As the sun began to set at Laguna Gloria, Carson dropped to one knee and asked Claire to be his wife. Without hesitation, she said yes! other local vendors: Warren Barron Bridal • The Cake Plate • Austin Country Club • Townsley Designs • In10City Band • David Kurio Designs • Personally Yours • Carolyn Holden • Makeup by Denise • Jennifer Lindberg Weddings • Uptown Valet • Verve Austin • FILO Productions

ith the help of a mutual friend, McCall and Michael were first introduced on a winter day in Dallas while the whole city was shut down because of an immense snow storm. After that day, a few months go by of little communication. McCall and Michael unexpectedly crossed paths again at a St. Patrick’s Day party. It was there that Michael got the courage to finally ask McCall on a date. Two and a half years later, Michael popped the question beneath a beautiful Texas Hill Country sunset at McCall’s family ranch. The bride and groom said “I do” amid Austin’s tradition and charm at The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd and Hotel Ella on June 10, 2017. There, they toasted to love, family and forever! other local vendors: Carolina Hererra Bridal • Forty Five Ten • Special Occasion Cakes • Lynn Adams • Hotel Ella • Mirror Mirror Salon - Johan Simon • Danielle Barr • Hayden Avery Fine Stationery • FaceKandy - Kandy Glass • Sophie Epton Photography • Transportation Consultants • PhotoHouse Films • Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd • Blind Date F E AT U R E D BRIDAL ACCESSORIES & WEDDING RINGS DECOR/RENTALS, LIGHTIN G MAKEUP REGISTRY

tephen and April lived less than a mile apart, but it ultimately took Tinder to bring them together! Their first date was during the College World Series when Vanderbilt, Stephen’s alma mater, played the University of Texas, April’s. Stephen sat with his back to the TV the entire evening and they talked for hours! April is difficult to surprise, and Stephen is terrible at keeping secrets, so all April had asked when they started talking about marriage was that the proposal be a surprise. Stephen showed up at April’s car, where it was parked at work, on Christmas Eve. He used her spare car key to hide in her driver’s seat. When April opened her car door, Stephen surprised her and popped the question! The couple was married at Westwood Country Club on December 3, 2016. Their reception was classic, warm and romantic
