About Us

Founded in 2010, The Nouveau Romantics take pride in creating one-of-a-kind experiences - an approach that has has landed them on multiple "Best Planners" list in the US, including Harper's Bazaar and Martha Stewart Weddings. Though we hold an office in Austin, Texas, NYC, and Los Angeles, we design and plan weddings throughout the United States, Canada, and beyond. Give us a ceremony in the countryside or a wedding on a riad rooftop in Marrakech, and you’ll see us at our best. Above all, we are a passionate team of creatives who value a bold imagination and a great sense of humor.

Our Process

Every event we design begins with you. Whether it’s an intimate gathering or a fabulous fête, we approach your day as a collaboration, built on the story only you can tell. From our first inspiration boards to the moment we pack up, it’s your vision we’re bringing to life.

For this reason, no two weddings by The Nouveau Romantics are alike. We thrive on the challenge of creating an experience as unique as you are—it pushes us to dream big while tailoring our design process to you. Think of us not only as your planners, but also as your allies, your champions.

Years after the big day, many of our clients remain lifelong friends. A close working relationship is the foundation for all that we do, and because we produce less than five weddings a year, we can give yours the attention it deserves. At every step of the process, we strive to over-deliver —so that when your night comes to a close, your guests will remember an event that was effortless, delightful, and truly you.

The Nouveau Romantics' work has been featured throughout the pages of national and international publications alike, including Martha Stewart Weddings, Instyle, Brides Magazine, Southern Living, Brides of Austin, and White Magazine, as well as all major wedding blogs and internet resources. Our founder and creative director, Elizabeth McKellar (formerly Lewis), is actively sought out as an expert in the industry through interviews and speaking opportunities.
