Brooke and Jeremy just celebrated their one year wedding anniversary…a couple months ago…, so I’m a little overdue on this blog post. Enjoy!
Brooke and Jeremy’s wedding priorities were to have an intimate ceremony and reception that reflected their personalities and allowed them to enjoy time with their closest friends and family – all 300 of them.
The ceremony was set on the City Terrace of The Long Center, with downtown Austin providing a scenic backdrop during Brooke and Jeremy’s vows. Floral was stunning, but nothing compared to the stylish and beautiful bride and groom (seriously, check out the pictures below.) Their sweet dog served as the flower girl (good girl, Lucy) and their vows included their favorite song lyrics. Finished with a champagne toast, the ceremony beat rain clouds by minutes and set the pace for an evening of love and magic.
Two words to sum up the reception at French Legation: Party Time. DJ J. Edgar Groover, White Ghost Shivers, and All My Friends took the stage throughout the night and guests did not hold back from letting loose on the dance floor. The reception was picnic style with a mix of classic dining tables and scattered Indian tapestries for ground seating. Every detail reflected Brooke and Jeremy, from the photobooth backdrop painted by talented artist Sloke to the custom-made posters given as favors. This wedding was a total blast, and a true celebration of Brooke and Jeremy (and Lucy!) becoming a family.
Happy (late) Anniversary, Brooke & Jeremy!

Annie and Neil’s wedding was very special to me, since I’ve been friends with Annie for over 5 years and have seen them go from first date to the altar. They’re one of the most fun and talented couples in town, Neil being a stellar senior copywriter and performer (hello, Neiliyo!), and Annie being a helluva photographer (AnnieRay.net – she’s kind of a big deal). Helping them plan their wedding was a wild adventure since I did double duty as the planner and Maid of Honor. It means so much to have been a part of their big day. Annie and Neil have hearts of gold, an amazingly supportive and encouraging family, and the coolest friends around. Below are some of my favorite moments, captured by the insanely talented Jake Holt.
