Kait and Zach's wedding at the Four Seasons was hands-down one of our favorites to date! We got to set up the photo booth a bit early for their reception, which allowed us to see their reception decorations before all the fun began. The entire day was full of special details that we were totally obsessed with, like the custom dance floor monogram, their pedicab send-off and of course we loved how their print template perfectly matched their wedding invitations! Plus, working with vendors like Pearl Events, The Inviting Pear and Texas Pro DJ is always a treat!
It was so obviously how loved this couple was just by listening to the speeches that were made following dinner. Kait's dad explained that she was a swimmer when she was young, and when they stayed at the Four Seasons when they came to town for a big swim meet, 11-year-old Kait turned to her dad and said "I'm going to get married here." Fast forward and here she is, marrying the love of her life in one of the prettiest venues in Texas and we still can't believe we got to be a part of it!

It’s been a long hot summer, and we’re ready to trade our floppy hats and sandals for cozy sweaters and nights around the bonfire! This season, we’re excited to work with some of our favorite fall jewel tones. Here are some tips on how to incorporate these trendy shades into your wedding day décor!
Welcome your guests with a richly colored invite! Flat matte cardstocks look elegant and presentable. Accent these dark backgrounds with metallic copper or gold script and add a signature monogram or image to personalize your stationery.
2. Bridal Party
A bold way to introduce color is through the bridal party. Groomsmen may wear your chosen shade on a bowtie, necktie, boutonniere, or even suspenders and socks for a subtler touch of color.Bridesmaids may make a more striking statement donning full length jewel toned gowns, or keep it understated with a statement shoe or hairpiece.
Our favorite!! Work with your florist to design custom florals that incorporate your favorite fall hues. They’ll know just what colors to pair to create designs that are uniquely yours.
Use your cake – the perfect blank canvas – to compliment your jewel toned color palette with wooden accents or touches of copper or gold.
Finally, send your guests home with a unique and personalized keepsake from your special day!
We'd like to thank Pearl Events for collecting some really great tips on how to incorporate jewel tones into a wedding! We completely agree that these hues will likely be extremely popular this season and we can't wait to see it in action. Of course, if you're looking for a way to incorporate your photo booth into this color scheme, we suggest pulling these shades into your print design, and picking a really great backdrop that will match the aesthetics of your reception as well. We're anticipating our gold, dark grey and white backdrops to be in heavy rotation this fall if lots of couples are choosing this color palette!
January has already flown by, and we kicked off 2017 with an open house at one of our favorite Austin venues: Mercury Hall! We had a blast meeting the future brides-to-be and guests. Luckily for us, we had the best of both worlds by being under the clear tent, which was strung with festoon lights, and being able to peek into the chapel and its stunning stained glass windows! Even though it is minutes from downtown, the greenery that surrounds Mercury Hall makes it feel secluded from the busy streets of Austin. The Loot Vintage lounge was placed in the middle of the canopy, and we were drooling over their blue velvet bench in particular! It’s never really hard work when we get to work alongside other amazing vendors such as Gypsy Floral, who was there to create beautiful bouquet arrangements for each guest, Feathers and Frosting, who offered delicious cake tastings, and the beautiful custom designs of Parcel Design Co. (Fun fact, the owner of Parcel Design Co was actually the room mate of our owner, Kelsey!) Vanilla Orchid catered some of the most delicious bites for the event as well. We really could not have asked for a better Thursday night! We love open houses because it gives us a chance to meet and chat with guests on a more personal level and get a better feel of what they are wanting at their special event. Big thank you to Mercury Hall for hosting such a wonderful night, we cannot wait to meet YOU at the next one!
Happy 2017, y'all! We are starting off the year right by gearing up for some amazing bridal shows and open houses this month and next, but we wanted to share some fun photos from Flannery & Nicholas' gorgeous Prospect House wedding on New Year's Eve! We had so much fun hanging out with their guests. We've always loved Prospect House, and it was so amazing to finally see it at night! There were giant white balloons lining the walkway at the entrance, and pretty lights hanging across the guests' chairs at the ceremony site. Kate with Wild Sky Events did such an amazing job helping pull everything together, and we loved getting to see some gorgeous work from our friend Shannon over at The Inviting Pear, who created Flannery and Nicholas' seating charts, acrylic dinner menus, copper drink menu and programs.
We even saw a few familiar faces at the wedding. Peter, our operations manager, is a born and raised Austinite and was helping at the wedding, and he ran into a few of his old teachers from elementary school! Small world!
Happy 2017, again, you guys! Can't wait to see what this year holds for us!
The simplicity of a green and cream color combination gives us all the heart eyes! Something we love about this color palette is that it looks great during any season! So many venues in Austin are either partially or fully outdoors, which means you can bank on green being in a lot of your photos, so why not embrace it?
With a relatively neutral color palette, we think our silver sequin backdrop would look absolutely stunning alongside all your decor! We would also be able to create a print design that includes a classy eucalyptus wreath or graphics of huge white flowers. The options are virtually endless, and we already have our wheels turning coming up with ideas for our next green and cream wedding!
Beatriz and Nelson had such a gorgeous wedding at Ma Maison! Fun music filled the reception hall as just about every single guests danced their butt off, and everyone make a point to come take a photo in the booth. The props were a huge hit, and we loved seeing all the smiling faces come through the line! Beatriz and Nelson were even sweet enough to offer us a plate of one of the best dinners we've had at a wedding! Such a great night!
We got to booth it up with Hannah and Zach at their Fort Worth wedding alongside our sister company, Kelsey Butler Photography! The Brooks at Weatherford provided the perfect backdrop for their big day, and the reception hall was essentially a gorgeous indoor renovated barn! It was a rainy day, but that couldn't stop the fun. We printed out about a million photos and we even got to watch as guests got creative as they signed the couple's guest book upgrade!
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Doty!!
