A wedding with fireflies featured in The Knot Texas

Monday, April 25th, 2016

The Knot Texas is finally out on the newsstands and we have a fun wedding included!  Gracey and Chris got married on a private ranch, next to a river and with many fireflies making it magical.  Plus there was a clear tent for gazing at the stars.  Made beautiful by Viridian Design Studio and with extra fun kicked in by Blind Date.  Here’s a few of our favorites, plus the pages from The Knot.

Grey Likes Weddings and Eastside Kings

Wednesday, April 13th, 2016

Grey Likes Weddings is featuring a wedding with Austin’s favorite food truck Eastside Kings.

Talk about foodie love.  Laura and Noah had Eastside Kings cater their cocktail hour, and Salt Lick BBQ catered the reception.  And two bands:  Milk Drive for some bluegrass, followed by the Matt Wilson band for dancing.  All coordinated most excellently by Bird Dog Wedding.  More about the wedding after a few images.

Two Brooklynites, one raised in Texas, had their elegant wedding in a ranch setting out in Texas Hill Country.  Laura and Noah wanted a sophisticated country vibe; laid back atmosphere juxtaposed with the formality of the venue.  Fancy mixed with rustic country.
The bridesmaids wore Amsale in shades of grey…two in dark grey, two in light grey and two in a grey pink floral print.  The groomsmen wore white jeans and blue blazers.

Laura and Noah are foodies, so they had two amazing food vendors, with dinner in the main hall with chandeliers and long rustic tables.  For dessert, pies by Bribery Bakery were served along with Texas Bluebell ice cream.

Milk Drive played bluegrass music for the ceremony and cocktails, with old barrels for tables.  The floral bouquets were the epitome of romantic pastel elegance.  The linen table runners were from La Tavola, pairing nicely with beautiful tall green leaf arrangements.
