Just before the wedding reception began, Anne and Nick arrived at the Four Seasons Austin. They were greeted by their wedding planner, Becky Brock, and whisked away behind the scenes so that they could get a firsthand sneak peek at their reception banquet ballroom while their guests enjoyed cocktails and beer flights in a tulip-filled foyer. Because both Anne and Nick currently live in California, Anne's mother had taken care of most of the wedding details for her daughter here in Austin, TX. Upon seeing her mom's selections for the decor, Anne exclaimed "whoa, this is cool!" in every direction that she turned.
When our team found out that Anne had entrusted her mother to so much in the wedding details, we knew this would be a special bride to work alongside. Anne was dubbed by all to be a definite #bridechilla because of her laid-back, fun and family-based approach to her own wedding. In fact, other than walking down the aisle to marry her groom, one of Anne's only requests was that she not throw her own bouquet, but that it would be specially positioned at the dinner place setting of her brother's girlfriend along with a personal note from the bride. So sweet, right?
Enjoy the full film of Anne and Nick's celebration----between Anne's bubbly personality, her special choreographed father daughter dance, and the so very Austin pedi-cab get-away "vehicle," you are guaranteed to smile.

"Isn't She Lovely?"
Tarrytown United Methodist is a beautiful sanctuary in Austin with mahogany wooden pews, golden walls and traditional white wood finish. David Kurio's designs included modern, cascading curtains of flowers topped with tropical modern greenery. Outside, the towering doors to the church were flanked in a garland of white flowers as well, creating a stunning entrance to the day's celebrations. Inside, the bridesmaids gathered around Anne singing "isn't she lovely?" as Anne slipped into her wedding dress. Anne wore a double-layered lace gown designed by Oscar de la Renta and a classic white fur stole.
A Sweet Finish
The team at Brock & Co never ceases to amaze us--their designs and their coordination for events are always smooth, elegant, and so unique. This dining room almost seemed to shine like diamonds with all of the faceted glass, elegant iron-backed chairs, and tulips on each surface, giving the candles a glow that could reflect, shine, and warm the room. The wine bar menus were made of etched glass and perched on mirrored and brass trays. The letterpress menus at each place setting let guests know the courses for the evening, including a "sweet finish" of personal wedding cakes. These "Little" cakes celebrated Anne's family, the Littles.
Guests went wild during the father-daughter traditional dance as Anne and her father waltzed spritely onto the dance floor. Their upbeat choreography had everyone squealing with excitement, and even some shedding a few tears at the beautiful, joy-filled moment. Pure Party Band kept the rest of the reception rocking through the evening all the way until Anne and Nick's departure from their reception. In a nod to Anne's roots in Austin, Texas, they took a traditional downtown mode of transportation as they left the party--a pedi-cab. This wedding was truly a celebration!
