Everything about this wedding was AMAZING! Kelsey had a vision and it was such an honor assisting her in bringing such an extraordinary vision to life. Every single piece of this wedding meant something special to her and it turned out even better than we both imagined. Had it not been for my A team of vendors, it would have been extremely difficult,so thank you to the team and enjoy!

Much love!

I love weddings.  I love LSU.  I love weddings for LSU Grads!!!  Adrian and Matt both met while they were at LSU and decided to plan their wedding in Austin, where Matt’s family has a lake house.  Their ceremony was at Central Christian Church, one of my personal faves, and reception was at Hotel Van Zandt.  This was my first wedding at Hotel Van Zandt and it was awesome.  I love the space, it’s so cool and hip… I want to live there.  We had Simon Lee make an awesome bride’s cake and an AMAZING groom’s cake of an LSU crawfish boil!  Polkadots Cupcakes made a fun LSU macaroon tower. Geaux Adrian and Matt!!!

XOXO

JJ + Phil

Today we are featuring JJ + Phil’s amazing wedding!

JJ and Phil got married this July and it was totally gorgeous! Their ceremony was at Smith Family Chapel and it was sweet, emotional and tearful.  When a couple writes their own vows, it is pretty much the best thing ever…cue the tears. From the ceremony, their guests went to the reception at the lovely Westwood Country Club. They were greeted with rose and champs, and probably my favorite welcome sign ever.  JJ’s friend did all of the graphics and they were pretty awesome: programs, food signs, welcome sign.  We also got creative with seating and did a fun lounge with florals from Bouquets of Austin that was a big hit.  It would be hard to talk about the Picone wedding without mentioning the groom’s favorite food, donuts, and the donut wall that was built with love by JJ’s mom, Tracy!  We served warm Round Rock Donuts, and I don’t think I have ever seen food fly off a station so fast in my life. My personal highlight of the night was the flutter fetti’d last dance. Everyone loved it! Then, we had all of the guests line up for send off while the bride and groom had their private last dance (guys, if anyone asks me for one piece of advice in wedding planning, do the bride and groom private last dance, best moment and photos of the night). I was sneaky and kept a flutter fetti stick to use with their last dance! It was so cool and captured by their awesome photographer – Ashley Stathes.  JJ and Phil, congrats again and best of luck with your move to NYC!

Robbi and John got married over Memorial Day weekend at the beautiful historic Allan House. Since day 1, Robbi had a vision of what she wanted their big day to look like. With the help of her sweet daughter, Lila, as well as our amazing vendors, we were able to make that vision a reality. The weather was sunny and there could not have been a more perfect day for this wedding! Best wishes to you both!

Jennifer and Alex’s wedding was at the stunning Ma Maison, and we could not have asked for a more perfect day for these two people, who are beautiful inside and out (just take a look)!! Jennifer and I planned everything from beginning to end, along with her amazing mom Barbara, and had the best time throughout the planning process! We secured a dream team of vendors, including Kelly with Mint Photography, who captured the couple’s wedding day perfectly! Matchmaker Band, as usual, kept the dance floor full and we took it to the next level with some fun “Texas themed” dance floor props! Take a look at all of the beautiful details and the vendors who made it all come to life! Congratulations Jennifer and Alex!

Lauren Taylor (as we from here on out will call LTay) and I have known each other for a few years.  We are both advisors for ZTA, and I was honored when she asked me to help plan her wedding.  I LOVED getting to know both LTay and Kevin through the planning process.  We looked for venues together, looked for her dress together and planned her rehearsal dinner and wedding together.  I got to know their families really well in the planning, and they are such a kind and loving group of people, it was a thrill to plan with them!  The dance party was a main priority to Ltay and Kevin and I am glad we brought in Complete Desire ON FIRE to bring the fire, they brought it.  The dance party was epic and of course we ended with my favorite, the couple’s private last dance… and a flutter fetti send off.  It was a magical day!  Congrats to LTAY and KEV!

Viva MEXICO!

Megan and I grabbed our passports and away we went to Mexico, Cabo to be specific, to plan Kourtney and Terry’s wedding weekend.  We worked with Kourtney and her mom, Donna to plan the perfect day for Kourtney and Terry.  Big shout out to Engage Summits because I was able to use my resources from Engage to book most of our vendors, beginning with venue tours all the way to flowers! Cabo Floral Studio did an amazing job in creating our vision and bringing everything to life, it was perfect.  Massive props to Linens, Things and More for creating all of our custom signage, decor, linens and rentals.  They are perfectionists, and you can tell in their craft, every rental item was in perfect condition!  

Thanks to Kourtney for trusting us with her big day in another country.  We can’t wait to go back!  Cabo or bust!

I have never met two people more in love than Nora and Silas. Seriously, just being in the same room as them you can tell how perfect they are for each other. I may be biased because I’m obsessed with Harry Potter (um, check out that cake) and love everything gold and gray, but man their wedding was perfect! It all came together, thanks to having some of the best vendors in town to turn the vision into reality. I truly wish the best for you two.
