Mr. and Mrs. Austin – June 23, 2018

So many details go into coordinating a wedding and making it perfect. Because of this, many of our couples book more than a year in advance and over the course of that time, we meet, we email, we take lots of notes, and we do everything possible to help our couples plan the best day ever. Nikki and Ryan booked their special day with us about a year and a half in advance, so we had a lot of time to get to know not only their wedding and reception details but also them as a couple.

Nikki and Ryan met in High school in band class and had their first date at their prom. These high school sweethearts planned a beautiful day filled with delicious food, a ton of fun dancing, and so much love!

Saturday June 23, 2018 at 4pm we got to watch this beautiful bride walk down the aisle and say “I do” to her best friend. Our ballroom was beautiful with blue and silver accents and romantic lighting. The couple made special effort to make sure their guests had a one of a kind experience with a smoke machine, kids corner setup with coloring books and Legos, and a large array of delicious appetizers and food.
