Michael Antonia is a wedding DJ. He will also blow your mind. Those two things are not often synonymous, but trust us when we say, he will obliterate any ideas you have of what a wedding DJ is. He also happens to be a brilliant creative, designer, business owner, and all around good human. Read on to hear what he’s got to say.
Hi Taylor! For our readers who aren’t yet familiar with you, will you share a bit about how your path led you to photography?
Hi! Of course! Here’s the short version- I was an Art History major at Baylor University and had to take a black and white film class as a prerequisite for graduation. It was my last semester of school but I fell in love with it. I had never even considered photography as a career! A good friend from school saw some of my hobbyist work on Facebook and asked me to come assist her at weddings! I soon fell in love with weddings- the dynamic schedule during the day, getting to know people and their families, the photojournalism and the fine-art of it- the entire thing! I knew it was what I was meant to do!
We’re thankful that our weddings bring us to so many amazing places, but we are always happy to be home in ATX, so when Brides of Austin asked us to design their launch party, we gave them a big, resounding YES! Collaborating is what we love to do and a dream team of Austin vendors makes our work all the more fun.

Celebrations always seem to be grounded in food. Whether it is a holiday, anniversary, or just a summer barbeque, there is nothing more special than friends, family and loved ones coming together over a shared meal. Food is central to our celebrations, and a wedding is no different. Choosing the person to prepare and serve the wedding feast is one of the most important and difficult decisions a couple will make.
Great food that reflects you and your fiancé is incredibly important; however, equally important is the service. We can always rely on Carrie and Steve from Kurant Events to deliver delicious food and flawless service.

We have to let you in on the most amazing secret: Shelter Co – the gorgeous [glamping to get alliteral] company from California – is “setting up camp” with an Austin + Texas outpost! As we find ourselves doing more and more weddings and events on ranches and private properties, we’re often faced with the dilemma of accommodations for the bridal party and guests. This news couldn’t be more perfectly timed!
