    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!

    (Special thanks to The Long Center, French Legation Museum, Pink Avocado Catering, Cory Ryan Photography, Alison Narro, Rosehip Flora, Premiere Party Rentals, and all vendors for making this day run smoothly!)

    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. (Big thanks to our amazing venue and vendors including Laguna Gloria, ILD Lighting, Crave Catering, Posey Floral and Event Design, and Marquee Event Group.)

    Sandy & Crystal

    Crystal Cook and Sandy Pollock, also known as the Casserole Queens, combine three of my favorite things (vintage clothing, food, and cocktails) into one. Recently Danny and I have collaborated with them on some exciting projects, so it only seems right to include the Queens in my first blog post.

    The Casserole Queens, Sandy and Crystal, have resurrected the classic American casserole and put their own spin on the dish. A few of my favorites include Spicy Mac and Cheese, A+ Asparagus, and Corn Dog Casserole (I recommend putting veggie dogs in this dish!). Starting out as a food delivery service in Austin, the Queens have expanded their empire to include a delicious cookbook, fresh new channel on Hungry YouTube, and a monthly recipe column in Woman’s Day Magazine. Being friends for over 10 years, Crystal and Sandy embrace 1950s kitsch while bringing fun and flair to their recipes. (And I must mention, they were on Throwdown! with Bobby Flay a few years ago and if you look closely you can see me doing the twist in the background as an extra. Yes, that’s right.) You can connect with the Queens on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Pinterest to catch their latest endeavors.
