Open House at the The Parish – TONIGHT!!

The Parish is an institution as a music venue here in Austin, TX aka: The Live Music Capital of The World.  They’ve also recently gotten the genius idea of offering certain evenings for events.  This recently renovated space would work beautifully as a reception venue or even an after party.  It would also work as for a corporate event, private party, gala, pretty much any kind of event that needs a downtown vibe.  They’re having an open house tonight from 5-8:30pm.  I’ll be there drinking free wine and eating food courtesy of Frank!  Come say “hi” and check out The Parish.

Tricia before the veil.

You wait and plan and wait and plan and stress and dream and then all of a sudden, it’s here.  You’re in the basement of a church, naked in front of all your friends, then wearing the most beautiful dress you could have ever imagined.  You’re head is spinning a little, you have butterflies, but insist to everyone that you’re really not THAT nervous after all.  You’re shuffled off to have your portraits taken only slightly noticing how beautifully everything has come together.  It’s just happening all around you and to you.

You’re a bride on your wedding day.

Have a super weekend!!

Places I’d rather be…

It’s a whopping 103º in Austin, Texas and while it is not the hottest summer we’ve had, I’m fed up with this heat!!  So other places I’d rather be?

IRELAND.

 This was shot in Kinsale, Ireland during the summer.  Yes, that’s me.  The house has no significance other than it is bright blue and I appeared to match it.  I took the below holga photo of the window which, in retrospect, I obviously should have shot in color.  Live an learn, I suppose.

 
I hope you are all keeping cool as we brave out the final days of summer.  Actually Austin has at least a month left of summer, probably six weeks.  So, get thee to a watering hole!  I will be dreaming of Ireland, hats, scarves, boots and hot whiskey drinks.  I will be dreaming of Autumn.

Wedding dress SWOON!

I’m just sitting here, simply swooning over the dresses from Maria Lucia Hohan.  The flounce, ruffles, bows, all of it!!  But I must admit that it was the color palate that was first to draw me in and tickle the super girlie side of my brain.  Ooh la la….

Emma & Simon – second post

After the ceremony at Emma’s childhood home,  Emma, Simon and their guests walked down the block for their cocktail hour and then to a tented reception on the corner…

Emma’s mother planted sweet peas along upon hearing of Emma and Simon’s plans to have the wedding reception on the corner lot.  By the time the wedding day arrived, they provided a lovely natural barrier.  They were also used in the arrangements on the table as well as Emma’s bouquet.  The only other flowers were ranunculous from a local farm.
Enjoy the details!

Emma & Simon – first post

So…I love this wedding.  A LOT.  Emma and Simon were married in Emma’s parent’s house in Austin’s historic Hyde Park neighborhood.  The ceremony took place in the backyard with a well-loved garden as their only backdrop.  After the ceremony, they walked down to the end of the block where the reception was held.  Those pictures are coming tomorrow.  If you love wedding and design, you’ll not want to miss it.
Stay tuned….
