Q. How did you choose your venues?
We wanted something downtown where we could have both the ceremony and reception. We lived in downtown Austin at the time and wanted something that captured the mix of old and new that Austin is to us. I loved the idea of having a wedding at a museum or non-traditional wedding venue, so The Jones Center Rooftop was a perfect fit for us.
Q. Tell me about your attire – who designed your dress and where did you buy it?
I got my dress from Flovare, a designer in L.A. that I actually found from a Facebook add (a win for targeted ads). They sent me sample dresses and I was able to try them on at home and pick out what I wanted. It was a great experience for someone who hates shopping and whose bridesmaids and mom are located in different cities.
Q. What shoes did you choose and what jewelry did you wear?
I wore Keds that were from Kate Spade and covered in white glitter (I knew I wanted to wear flats) and Kendra Scott “ear crawler” earrings that I also got a pair of for my bridesmaids. The rest of my jewelry was simple. I did wear a necklace with a tiny “mrs” on it. I had a hard time finding what type of necklace to wear and this was part of a bride themed gift box one of my bridesmaids gave me.
Q. And your groom – tell me about his look – who was his suit designer? Any other significant accessories?
The grooms suit and bow-tie were from Suit Supply and all picked out by him and his best man (including the tie he had to be threatened into wearing, he apparently wanted a more casual Miami Vice groom look). The groomsmen all got the same suit as well.
Q. What was one of your favorite moments from your wedding day?
For sure all of the dancing at the reception. Also, having to kick my dad out of the bridal sweet while we were getting ready because he just wanted to keep hanging out (definitely a dad move). And that most of our friends and family came out to “after party” with us, including our new friend the DJ (Anthony). Really, the whole day was filled with favorite moments.
Q. What was your favorite image from your wedding day?
There are so many! There’s one of us and our dog (family portrait for sure). Getting to have her in the photos was pretty great (although next time she’s in photos I might get her groomed and remove the poop bag holder from her leash first:)). There is a candid of us dancing where we are having so much fun. And of course all the candid’s of our guests at the reception.
