After filming Sarah + Mark's wedding reception this past weekend, we bet the walls of Brazos Hall are still ringing with echoes from the fun, modern wedding. Both the bride and the groom told us that their wedding was going to be fun and relaxed, but we were astounded by how much fun their whole crowd had at the reception--with epic dancing throughout the night and an AMAZING performance by the groom that made everyone go wild with cheering! Mark's drumming skills weren't only seen onstage-- his groom's cake was modeled after his own drum set! Watch and see:

Merveille designed the florals for this stunning modern, romantic celebration. Railings were loosely draped with wild smilax with floral in ivory, cream, and touches of gray nestled amongst the greenery. At each entrance, clear glass cylinders in varying heights and wax luminaries lined the steps with a variety of floral including hydrangeas, white stock, white roses, and dusty miller. Succulent rosettes, white scabiosa, ranunculus, peonies, green and white kale, eucalyptus, tillandsia and brunia berry contributed to the visual feast once inside. (Also, we dare you not to drool over this beautiful salad that was set on the farm-style rustic wooden banquet tables by Crave, the catering company). The cakes were made of the most divine flavors--the bride's cake was almond with strawberry, and the groom's "drum set" cake was cookie dough flavored with chocolate filling. In honor of the groom, a cigar bar was provided for guests on the upper floor of Brazos Hall. Guests enjoyed beers and a signature cocktail in monogrammed cup sleeves as they visited in the city night air on the balcony terrace. "The Ginger Lee" was a cocktail drink created in honor of the couple's dog. It was three equal parts of Bulleit Bourbon, Domain De Canton (a ginger liqueur), and fresh lemon juice, all served over ice. From the upstairs open-air lounge, guests could socialize and enjoy the stunning view as pedicabs and horse-drawn carriages meandered on the streets below. Edison bulbs hung over the dance floor as the crowd danced the night away. The evening ended with a bang--Sauce the band invited the bride and groom onstage to sing the last song, and guests were treated to midnight Milky Ways and candy treats as they walked out the doors. In true Austin fashion, Sarah and Mark exited their downtown reception through a tunnel of sparklers leading to a pedicab getaway.
Congrats, Sarah + Mark! We can't wait to finish editing your wedding film and share it with you.
