Vendor Shout out: ILD

This week’s vendor shout out goes to Intelligent Lighting Design! This lighting design company started in 2006 and is one of the best at what they do in the state of Texas. They offer over 149 million colors to choose from, making each event unique and special. Intelligent Lighting Design prides themselves in setting the “gold standard” for lighting at events. Safety, customer service, cutting-edge mobile technology, expansive color reach, and custom color matching are just a few of ILD’s priorities when lighting an event!

We talked to Katherine McCommon about why ILD is one of the best in lighting events. See the interview below:

 

How long have you been working in the industry and how did ILD first get started?

I started with Intelligent Lighting Design back in 2006 (a little over 7 years ago) and it was my first job in the event industry.  Prior to ILD, I was the Vice President of Marketing for a foreign currency company based out of Dallas and I worked with American Express to create the first online foreign currency purchase portal for travelers on Expedia.com and Travelocity.com.  ILD recruited me from the currency industry and brought me onboard to develop operational procedures for multiple office locations around Texas.  With marketing being my first love, I couldn’t help but integrate new and innovative ideas to a new and growing event company.  ILD opened it’s doors only months before hiring me onto their team – it was an exciting time!

What is your favorite part of working with weddings?

A wedding is a sacred occasion, one that should be respected at all times.  When a client hires ILD as their lighting or audiovisual vendor, it’s an honor.  We know that our client is entrusting us with the most important day of their life and it’s not to be taken lightly.  I love weddings!  I live for that first meeting with a bride and groom when they describe their wedding vision.  I love the challenge of recreating their dreams into a reality – and then seeing the pictures afterwards!

What is the most important thing to know when it comes to the lighting for a wedding?

 The most important element is staying true to the theme.  Lighting is versatile and is designed to complement the overall look – like a bow wrapped around a gift. We are the bow and the wedding is the gift!  I love my job because ILD gives me the ability to design lighting equipment for my clients thanks to our Creative Director, Brian Dawson.  Through his iDesign product line, I can brainstorm the best lighting design for my client and work my way backwards into our inventory.  For example, when one of our celebrity clients wanted festoon (string lights) hung over dark wooden farm tables, we designed custom built wooden support poles stained in the same wood finish as the tables.  By doing this, we were able to create a consistent design look where the tables and festoon support poles matched!

 How would you describe your style when it comes to lighting?

I have a modern approach with pops of color.  Yes, I know that amber lighting is very popular right now (hence why ILD offers custom iDesign amber color wash fixtures for our clients) – but I love how a pop of color looks in photos.  I always tell my clients that a wall of fuchsia lighting makes everyone look like ROCKSTARS. If a pop of color doesn’t work for my clients, I recommend a wow factor like a stunning set of chandeliers.  Weddings can be modern and fun at the same time!  I love clean lines and consistency.  For example, if my client has a monogram on their invitation as well as their menus and napkins at the reception – then I always recommend projecting that same monogram on a wall or dance floor at the wedding.  Lastly, I love drama.  There is nothing better than programming a dramatic entrance for a bride as she walks down the aisle…with the aisle lighting up with each step she takes.  It gives me goosebumps every time!

 Have you noticed any trends that brides are asking for when it comes to the lighting for their wedding?

Yes. Right now, with the popularity of the Bohemian look, I find my clients wanting string lights dropped vertically out of trees throughout an outdoor wedding reception.  I am thrilled to have many of my clients choosing this look in upcoming May weddings! I’m also seeing the popularity of festoon string lights increasing!  Our new custom-designed iDesign wooden posts are ideal for outdoor events.

Check out some of these spectacularly lit weddings!

Ambre + Scott

naS1nMzl-ux-EgpqYu1ASUH6cHMEO6o-bOB0sPbVrZs

 

Ambre and Scott were married at Scared Oaks at Camp Lucy.  We were so excited to be one of the first Austin wedding planners to be at the venue the week that they opened! We planned for a sunset ceremony to highlight the hanging lights in the trees.  The band, The Night Moves, kept the dance floor full and even played the Grand March halfway through the night that involved every single guest!  We worked together on the design and layout of the space to create a dance floor large enough for a Grand March to occur, and it worked perfectly.  The couple also brought in an iron cherry blossom tree from Whim Rentals to accentuate the space, and it could not have been more beautiful!

Congratulations Ambre and Scott!!!

XOXO,

Megan

Providing delicious food for your guests is one of the easiest ways to thank them for celebrating your special day with you. Let’s be honest, food is food and guests will  appreciate a traditionally plated meal or buffet, but sometimes it’s a nice change of pace to take a simple meal and transform it into an experience. If you’re looking for an outside-of-the-box way to feed your guests, Food Trucks, Food Carts or family style settings offer a unique and memorable experience.

 

Food Carts

Food carts are a fun way to introduce food to your cocktail hour. These carts offer fun finger foods for your guests to munch on before they take their seats. Cotton candy, popcorn, coffee, adult beverages, and ice cream are all excellent cart ideas!

Family Style

Serving a family style meal is becoming increasingly popular in the wedding world. Aside from deciding on their own portion sizes, the act of sharing encourages guests to interact and communicate with the other people at their table. Passing the bowl of whipped, buttery mashed potatoes can unsurprisingly “whip” up a great conversation!

Food Trucks

From all the dancing and partying, it’s no surprise that your guests may grow hungry again after dinner. For a late night snack, consider renting a food truck! Although this idea would be great anywhere, the trucks are an especially great idea in Austin, simply because we have so many delicious choices!

Jeralyn + Mitch

Jeralyn is a Louisana girl, and we got along splendidly.  Jeralyn was referred to us by the wonderful Sherry Hammonds Photography.  When Jeralyn came to our first office meeting, the only thing she knew for sure was that Sherry was photographing the wedding.  We were able to help with venue location and vendor recommendations for Jeralyn since we started working together from the very beginning, which means Jeralyn and Mitch had an amazing vendor team to execute their big day.  We used Yara from Unique Design and Events to pipe and drape the ceremony location, added amazing candlescapes and florals from Bouquets of Austin, plus a few uplights from the DJ Sean from ATX DJ and “BAM!” what an amazing ceremony backdrop!  We all worked together to transform this space into the reception in a quick 45-minute flip!  One of my personal highlights of this wedding was the fun surprise of a second line send off. It was a BLAST!

 

Congrats Jeralyn and Mitch!

XOXO,

Becky

Vendor Shout Out: Adore Makeup Boutique + Salon

This week’s Vendor Shout Out goes to…. Adore Makeup Boutique and Salon!

 

A song starts to play, heads turn, and suddenly, all eyes are on you. At this exciting moment, every bride wants and deserves to feel beautiful, confident, and flawless. The talented women at Adore Makeup Boutique + Salon understand your specific needs for such a big, important event and want to ensure that every second of your walk down the aisle, you are worry-free. Specializing in both hair and makeup, these women have been there, done that, and know just how to style you (and your bridesmaids) in a way that will last, photograph well, and of course, make you feel even more beautiful.

 

 

Rhea - Half OrangePhoto Credit: Half Orange Photography

 

We talked to Rhea McCarter about why Adore is so awesome! See the interview below:

 

 

How did you get started working in cosmetics?

Growing up in the ballet world, I learned makeup, including false lash application, at a very young age. I loved every aspect of it, and by seventh grade, I was helping the ballerinas backstage apply eyeliner and lashes. It was my visual art! After earning a bachelor’s degree, I combined the business knowledge with my background in makeup and started working/training as much as possible. In 2012, I opened Adore, and my dream was realized!

What is your favorite part about helping a bride get ready for her day?

I love the moment where my bride is completely ready, and when I see/experience the emotions of her family and bridal party seeing her the first time. It is a precious and priceless moment.

What advice would you give a bride who is just starting to plan her wedding?

In the beginning, I advice to gather as many bridal magazines and photos as possible (Pinterest is great) and set aside any photo that stands out to you. Once you have exhausted these resources, look at your choice photos together and you will have your theme! It’s important to stay true to yourself, especially when it comes to hair/makeup choices.

What makes Adore stand out from other salons?

Adore Makeup Boutique + Salon is located in a quaint, warm home off of Koenig Lane. We have space to host large bridal parties and offer an award-winning Makeup Bar and Hair in the salon/boutique. And, we also travel anywhere and everywhere for our brides! (More than willing to go to Mexico for a destination wedding.)

Have you noticed any trends that brides are asking for when it comes to their wedding look?

Yes! My brides are wanting a pop of color now, and I just love it. Beautiful, colorful lips and cheeks photograph so nicely. The key is to stain the lips so the bride won’t have to continuously reapply or have her groom wearing a bright pink lip after the wedding kiss. For hair, we are seeing beautiful swept-up hair with brides integrated for texture. Stunning.

How far in advance should a bride book her hair and makeup?

The bride should book her hair and makeup as soon as she chooses her venue and wedding dress. It is important that the full story flows together; we often look at the bride’s photos of her choices to visualize/create her hair and makeup look. And, when you find a hair/makeup team that is a perfect fit, book right away. It is never too early. We have had weddings that book a year in advance. But, we always try our best to accommodate every bride!

Check out some of these beautiful, Adored brides!

Jenny + Scott

IMG_0079

Jenny and Scott had a quick engagement, and we hit the ground running for their wedding at Austin Country Club.  Her mom, Becky, and I worked closely together to secure their vendors for the big day.  The ceremony was at Smith Chapel, and I HAVE NEVER seen a more emotional wedding ceremony EVER.  There was not a dry eye in the house.  It was a gorgeous ceremony.  The bride and groom entered the reception to a fun slideshow of their relationship, and it ended with Scott talking about when he first met Jenny. She had a lily in her hair… cue Jenny with a lily in her hair for their first dance.  It was magical!
Congrats to Scott and Jenny!

XOXO,

Becky
