Astrid & Darren have had a beautiful, whirl-wind kind of romance, and in planning their wedding, Astrid told us that she wanted her wedding video to capture all the joy of both of their families and how much fun their community can be.

At the ceremony, we could tell the love Astrid had described was truly present in both families--from the way her sisters doted on her to the moments that Darren's mother wrapped her own great-grandfather's pocket watch around the clasp of the bridal bouquet (a family tradition). In fact, we were told that Astrid would be the 9th bride to carry that watch down the aisle. What a lovely way to incorporate a "something old" into your wedding!
Astrid also told us to look for all the fun that would be going on with her nephews and nieces at the reception. By the time La Hora Loca had begun, the dance floor was packed with guests rocking out to the Spazmatics and having fun in the open-area photo booth.
Clink Events designed a beautiful setting for Astrid and Darren. The ceremony was filled with only white-based bouquets filled with dusty miller and many textures of white flowers, including white larkspur, dahlias, lilies, orchids, and white majolica roses.
In contrast, the cocktail hour added pops of deep lilac, purples and smoky grey to the color palette. As guests chatted under khaki umbrellas, they found relief from the Texas summer heat with beautiful wooden hand-held fans and cool beverages. In addition to the bar, guests were treated to lemonade and tea in apothecary style jars, and water bottles rested in ice baths in galvanized buckets.
Astrid & Darren chose a very unique way to commemorate the concept of a guestbook at their wedding. They selected their favorite wines to open on each milestone anniversary, and asked guests to sign their names to the bottles so that as they celebrated their marriage in the future, they could reflect back on all of the people who have loved and supported them throughout their lives.
At the reception, Ice chiavari chairs surrounded each guest table, while the head banquet table was a lucite table with a mirror top, mirror and silver finished chargers, ghost lucite chairs, and beautiful floating candles in glass vases.
In lieu of a cake, Astrid & Darren chose to have a dessert buffet loaded high with single-serving delicacies.
How could you pick just one? :)
We are so happy to have joined Astrid and Darren for this day of celebration and love--with a crowd of friends and family who can dance into the wee hours of the night, we're sure it's always a good time wherever their smiles are present! Many thanks also go out to Jessica and Katie at Clink Events who kept the day going so smoothly.
