Couples to Celebrate: Jimena & Gabriel

This couple has such a special place in my heart. Jimena happens to be one of my close friends from high school so I have know her and Gabriel for quiet some time :) I can't wait to share with you their wedding pictures from last weekend! It was such an honor to coordinate and celebrate their special day with them. 

In the meantime, enjoy some of their engagement photos from the amazingly talented Hiram Trillo Photography!

Late Night Snack Anyone???

Thinking about having an end of the night snack for your wedding guests? Here's a great idea, a food truck. There are so many options for food trucks here in Austin, you can't go wrong and your guests will enjoy this treat.

Weddings to Celebrate: Kelly & Zach

I love December weddings.  There is just something about the holidays that make the wedding even more magical.  A stunning clear tent, crystal chandeliers, and a beautiful color palette made the overall effect just perfect.  Add to that an exceptional family, and a girl couldn't ask for any more.  It's only been weeks, and I already miss this family to pieces!

Feast your eyes on some of the sensational images captured by Something Gold Photography.  Aren't they lovely?

Happy Planning,

I love the look on Kelly's face when she looks at Zach.  She had this look all day. :)

Nothing like a little mistletoe for those Christmas-time weddings.  

I always avoid the camera, but when I am caught in a shot, it's usually pretty funny.

These expressions are priceless. 

Nothing says winter wedding reception like a hot chocolate bar.

Love this shot of mother and daughter at the end of the exit. :)
And, as always, the exceptional cast of vendors:

Thank Yous

I just received this sweet thank you note from one of my February clients. We have the BEST clients - seriously, the sweetest.
We are so so SO incredibly thankful for everything you did to help our wedding be the success that it was. That entire weekend was amazing and we both agree-"the best weekend of our lives"! I would not have survived/enjoyed Saturday without your help. I still don't know if there were any snaffoos because you did an awesome job of handling EVERYTHING! I recently was watching a reality show episode where one of the cast members was getting married and everything just seemed so disorganized, despite having a coordinator. While watching, all I could keep thinking was "oh my gosh....I can't even imagine" and thankfully, I did not! You were organized, prompted, detail oriented, and professional the entire process, from the first phone call (before we were even engaged) until Chateau Bellevue was locked up on Saturday night. 
Coincidentally, I just yesterday happened across the thank you that my mom wrote to my own "day of" wedding planner while I was honeymooning, over 11 years ago. Moms are the best - thanks Mom!

Lots of warm fuzzies, this chilly day. :)

Weddings to Celebrate: Amy & Cory

Julie Wilhite captured the beautiful photos below of Amy & Cory's fun fall wedding! I had such a wonderful time working with this sweet couple. From color palette to the champagne tower they were always open to trying something a little more unique, which in turn created a wedding that was the perfect representation of them.
