Chateau Bellevue Winter Wedding

Chateau Bellevue Winter Wedding // Wedding Couple // The Nouveau Romantics // Austin Wedding Planning and Event Design Studio

When Sarah, the bride, came to us asking for a “cabinet of curiosity” meets “belle époque” science-inspired wedding at Chateau Bellevue this past winter — our ears perked up. From florals to escort cards we were able to play with unique and other-worldly elements to create a wedding experience that reflected the shared interests of the scientist bride and groom. The Nichols photographers did such a wonderful job of capturing their personalities in the spirit of the day.

Vendor Friends // Kurant Events

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 are in the midst of updating our website, and we realized that we’d never shared these plum and gold wedding invitations from Tad and Berkeley‘s berry-pink inspired wedding at the Hotel St Cecilia. Our inspiration board for them envisioned a mix of midnight blues, pinks, and plums with a certain ornate opulence that we translated into their invitations as a multi-piece, multi-step experience for their guests. As a destination wedding for guests coming across the country and meeting in Austin, we took their small guest list as an opportunity to give them a hint of the opulent festivities waiting for them in Texas.

The Unique CAMP // Collaboration + Community

The Unique Camp // Creative Business Conference Liz here, returning to reality after spending last weekend in Big Bear, California at Sonja Rasula’s brainchild Adult-Summer-Camp-Creative-Business-Summit, also known as the Unique CAMP. After a busy winter and spring season, I wanted to take some time to expand my perspective, shake things up a bit, and hear from other business professionals within the creative field. And I did, x1000. [I’m a long-time summer camp graduate + ex-staff, so this is totally my jam. And I mean, Whitney was going, there was an epic last-night dance party, and they take away your cell phone for four days. Easiest decision ever.]

While I’m still digesting everything that happened, not to mention all that I learned, there were two theme that struck me from the experience: Read More

May // In Review

Along with the flowers and warmer weather comes wedding season downtime, and an opportunity to venture out and explore potential wedding venues in the area. We recently recieved an exclusive preview of Fair Market, an up and coming event venue located in an iconic warehouse in the downtown eastside of Austin with an adjoining outdoor area. Envision the garage doors raised for beautiful natural light and a blank canvas (with vaulted ceilings and the space for guests to dance, eat, and mingle). We can’t wait to design within this breathtaking space. The possibilities are endless!
