Chandler and Evan were married at First United Methodist Church and the reception took place at the Driskill, boy was it beautiful! I worked closely with Chandler and her mom, Meredith, to design their classic wedding. We worked with Westbank to create the most gorgeous entry and floral pieces for their big day. Chandler and Evan met at SMU while being a part of the Highline dance team, so picking the band was very important to the couple. They selected Matchmaker and it was a blast!

Congrats to Chandler and Evan!

xoxo Becky

Pearl Events New Office

We are so excited to reveal Becky’s new office! Five years ago Pearl Events was a small dream with hopes to do a few weddings to cover office rent and a little extra pocket change. Now it has grown to so much more and our new space shows it! Many people in our industry wonder why we need an office, but for Becky, the office is absolutely necessary. Separating work and home-life are very important to her, and the new office does that in a clean and comfortable enviornment for both our team and our clients. We have now doubled in size and made a space that is truly amazing and perfect for sparking creativity in our team as well as allowing clients to feel free to talk about every last crazy idea, design, or budget for their events. We are thrilled to share the photos of our office tour!

Rachel and Dan are the absolute sweetest and most genuine human beings I’ve ever met and had the privilege of working with. Nothing show my brides personality more than these photo’s captured by Brad at Hyde Park. Everything from the flowers to the food was magical. I wish you all the very best.

Much love,
Jen

Khaki + Grant

BEAUTIFUL only begins to describe this couple, and their wedding! At our initial meeting when I asked Khaki & Grant what they wanted most, it wasn’t decadent food, fabulous flowers, or a glamorous setting. Although they certainly had all these things, their only response was for their guests to have an amazing night…and DANCE!!!

They thought about their guests in every detail of the planning! Their convenience- having shuttle service from Transportation Consultants to and from the wedding, gave their guests peace of mind being on time and keeping them safe on the way back. Their tastes- having a variety of delicious food from Word of Mouth, providing the family owned Deep Eddy Vodka beverages, and selecting Simon Lee Bakery (one of Austin’s greatest) to custom design their stunning cake, left their guests full and satisfied. But most of all the focus was their guests’ enjoyment- having the ridiculously talented 10-piece band The Pictures fulfilled the couple’s wish, and kept all the guests on their feet until the very end!

Their special day took place in the Austin treasure, The Bob Bullock Museum.We were able to transform the Bob into Hayley and Rhonda’s (MOB) vision. With a great roster of vendors, dear family and love in the air, Hayley & Ryan‘s wedding was one for the books.  This couple could not have been cuter, happier and more in love.

Wish you all the very best.

Janet + Keith

Today we are featuring one of our beautiful Hotel Ella weddings. Janet and Keith’s elegant wedding was a night to remember!

Janet and Keith were an absolute pleasure to work with. It’s not everyday you meet a bride that lives far far away and who was definitely meant to be in your life. Janet, Keith, and I quickly bonded over our first phone call and then when we met, the rest was history! Janet said “I want to be classy and elegant for one day of my life, and this is it”. We used this sentence over and over throughout the planning process as our inspiration. There was so many surprise elements to this wedding it was hard to keep everything under wraps… hard, but not impossible! The groom, Keith, hired “The Ransom Notes” to preform Queen “Somebody to Love” during the ceremony. It’s Janet’s favorite song and it was absolutely magical. We added two confetti launchers for the last song which caught everyone by surprise. And the parents of the bride got the couple a horse and carriage as their getaway at the end of the night. It’s very rare that when the event is over, I’m this sad. I wasn’t ready for the night to end; I wanted more surprises and so did everyone else. It’s a good thing they rented out Hotel Ella so the fun could continue.

#BESTWEDDINGEVER #ALLTHEYDOISWIN

Love you two deeply and best of luck.

Pearl Crush

 

 

Pearl Crush… 

IMG_6239

 

Pearl Crush is back at it! This week we are featuring the team’s favorite local food trucks. Here are some local Austin hotspots, you need to check out! 

 

1. Megan’s Fav: Via313 Pizzeria:

Thick, crispy, Detroit-styled, and delicious. The Detroit natives and brothers, Zane and Brandon Hunt, brought a little piece of their home in to Austin, Texas. Via313 prides themselves in having the some of the finest pizza in the area. With dough prepared fresh daily, and the use of traditional baking techniques- every bite is an explosion of flavor. We recommend the Cadillac Pizza Pie which is a delicious infusion of Gorgonzola, fig preserves, prosciutto di Parma, Parmesan, and balsamic glaze. With two food trucks, located in the center of Austin- there are no excuses not to check this wonderful place out!

2. Katie’s Fav: VeraCruz:

Texans love their Mexican cuisine, but VeraCruz hits the classic favorites out of the park. VeraCruz was founded in 2008 by VeraCruz locals, and sisters- Reyna, and Maritza. Everything at VeraCruz is fresh- and delicious, as the sisters pick fresh ingredients daily. The three-truck food chain specializes in homemade tortillas, chips, tacos, and salsas, and houses everything from vegetarian to meat lover options. Katie’s favorite (and the locals obsession) is the Migas Taco. VeraCruz is not only adored by Austin locals, but has also been praised by household names such as Rachel Ray, the Rolling Stone, and the Austin Eater.

3. Ashley’s Fav: Burro:

Burro Cheese Kitchen satisfies any cheese lovers craving. Baked with Balkan burro cheese which is the finest, and most expensive cheese produced globally, this food truck only serves up the best of the best. With local artisan bread, homemade sauces, and Texas cheeses- Burro is bound to serve you the best grilled cheese sandwich you’ve ever tasted. Ashley’s favorite, and our recommendation is the Waylon & Willie- the spicy maple bacon sauce is to die for.

4. Becky’s Fav: Biscuits + Groovy

You don’t get more southern than biscuits and gravy, so it’s no surprise Biscuits + Groovy made this weeks Pearl Crush! With biscuits baked fresh daily, and prices below ten dollars- this food truck is perfect- for a date night, friends night out…or just about any night of the week. Becky’s favorite, and our meal of choice is The Aretha Franklin. The white pepper gravy is just too good to pass up!

Jen’s Fav: East Side King:

East Side King, created by Paul Qui, serves up asian cuisine with a Texas flare.  Guests line up the block for tasty snacks like beet fries, ramen noodles, and curry buns. Jen’s favorite, the Chicken Tortilla Ramen, is a delicious blend of chicken, avocado, cilantro, and lime. This is a hot spot you do not want to miss!

Party For The Parks

Today we are featuring

Austin Parks Foundation’s Party for the Parks!

Austin Parks Foundation held a marvelous evening at Brazos Hall to raise funds and support for Austin’s local parks.

Party For The Parks was the perfect way to kick off Austin City Limits music festival. Guests enjoyed delicious bites provided by Tacodeli and danced the night away to the Bruce Robison Band. Westbank Flower Market did an amazing job at transforming the venue into a park itself. We were knocked off our feet by the incredible generosity and turn out at the event. Reaching full capacity at Brazos Hall was the cherry on top of a perfect night.
