I am anxiously awaiting the professional photos from Evelyn and Gabriel’s elegant hill country wedding. Their wedding was at Rancho Mirando near Wimberley, TX. We did all the wedding planning long distance from Chicago with only a few Austin visits. I took a few photos on my iPhone, so pardon the quality.
First off, Evelyn’s gown by was stunning and my photo does not do it justice. http://www.galialahav.com/
Evelyn wanted an elegant wedding and we definitely pulled that off. Here are just a few more photos representing Bouquets of Austin, Pink Tulip Invitations and Michelle’s Patisserie.
Stay tuned for the professional photo blog documenting the entire wedding day.
Happy planning, Barbara
This wedding is one of the first posts I did on my new blog. I LOVED this wedding. It definitely ranks as one of my top 10 favorite weddings. I was thrilled when Style Me Pretty said they would be posting it on their blog. So much fun, unique details and a bride that radiates joy.
My only regret is that you can’t hear the choir singing as they lead the bridal party in or at the end of the ceremony. Now that was special.
Do you have an Austin wedding planner? Are you planning your wedding while living local or long distance? Either way, having a local planner can make all the difference in your stress level, quality of vendors and how the entire day flows.
Give us a call for a complimentary consultation to see how we can be of service.
I was interviewed by Austin Monthly regarding what couples need to do once they are engaged. So many couples are so excited after becoming engaged that they are not sure what the next steps should be. Do you have an Austin wedding planner yet? Do you have a great wedding vision, but aren’t sure how to bring it all together? I hope this will break it down for a smooth start to your wedding planning.
We’d love to assist you with your wedding planning needs.
Happy engagement, Barbara
Working with couples gives me such great insight into their relationship and creating their wedding day brings me more happiness than I ever imagine my career as a wedding planner would. We all have different skills and situations that bring us joy. By nature, I tend to nurture and problem solve, so being an Austin wedding planner was the perfect choice for me. I love seeing couples glow on their wedding days, but these two set the bar REALLY high. Their love for each other was so obvious I hope my own sons find that level of love with their future spouses. I was beyond thrilled to help them in their wedding plans, but being on site at the actual wedding was the cherry on top. Love in every glance, that is how I describe Kaitlin and Ward. Thank you Pam Hults for all their beautiful images http://alaviephoto.com/ starting with their fun engagement session.
There are not many things that mean more to a business than a rave review. Thanks to Ward for taking the time to post his thoughts.

Barbara and her staff helped keep my Bride sane and organized. We had a huge wedding with lots of moving parts. Barbara worked through some particularly difficult situations that I didn’t want to handle…and she did it with grace. I threw some curveballs her way the day of and during the wedding and she hit ‘em out of the park. Well worth the investment and I’m a little shocked she doesn’t charge more, she’s certainly worth it. I recommend Barbara w/out reservation. I don’t often give out my information, but for I’ll make an exception. You may contact me at Ward@WardDavisonLaw.com if you’d like some more information on Barbara. Congratulations, Ward…
One of the highlights of the evening was a very special music for the reception from The Voice duo http://www.dawnandhawkes.com/ with DJ, Stafford Jones filling in during breaks.
Thanks to http://www.bouquetsofaustin.com for the beautiful flowers and Lauren with http://www.pinktulipinvitations.com for all the gorgeous stationery
Happy planning and be sure to contact us if you are looking for an Austin wedding planner. Especially if you are planning a Driskill wedding, we work there throughout the year creating beautiful, classic weddings for couples.
Best wishes, Barbara
I am hopeful after looking at the calendar for 2015 that someone will contact me for a 10/31/15 wedding since it falls on a Saturday. I did a fantastic Halloween themed wedding many years ago and it was such a fun party. We had face painters on site for those that did not come in costume as well as beautiful masks. Over 50% of the guests came in tasteful costumes per the couples request with nothing too sexy or gruesome. The bridesmaids dressed as flapper girls and the groomsmen were mobsters. We had beautiful floral pumpkins for the centerpieces and cake design. It was definitely memorable.
I have had several weddings recently that have a variety of elegant, detailed masks to hand out during the dance party and for the photo booth to add another element of fun to their weddings. There are so many great ideas out there and it was fun researching different elegant weddings with a masquerade theme for next year. What a great Austin wedding that will be.
What do you think, are you interested in a masquerade ball style wedding next fall?
We’d love to plan such a fun event with you, Barbara
