Rustic Bohemian Gage Hotel Wedding

This boho Bride’s approach is spot on: You have to remember that there are NO rules when planning your wedding. Don’t feel forced to plan anything you aren’t into. Your wedding should be a reflection of you and your husband. Her wildly pretty fete planned by Beau Tied Events, is exactly that. It’s so them. And without actually knowing them, all it takes is one look at the gallery from Heather Curiel to know that their day? It reflected every bit of their love.

From the beautiful Bride… Getting married out in Marathon was a dream. It felt so good to be in the peaceful atmosphere of west Texas. The Gage Hotel was the perfect backdrop for our intimate wedding of 34 guests. All festivities were held at the Captain Shepherd’s house (owned by The Gage). Joe and I, along with our friends, occupied The Captain Shepherd’s house. I got ready there, we had the ceremony/dinner in the courtyard, and partied late into the night! It was so nice to stay put in one place. I never felt rushed or worried about what everyone was up to.

You have to remember that there are NO rules when planning your wedding. Don’t feel forced to plan anything you aren’t into. Your wedding should be a reflection of you and your husband. I loved that we had a small wedding! I felt like I really got to connect with my friends/family that made the journey. From going on a morning walk with my girlfriends to relaxing with champagne on the big porch balcony to laying in the middle of the road star gazing with guests… it was all so magical.

Elegant Austin Wedding At One World Theatre

If you’re planning a wedding from a distance — like, say, China — it helps to have Westcott Weddings and an all-star team of vendors (like Verbena Floral Design and Southern Fried Paper) on your side to take care of details and calm your nerves. As you can see in Caroline Joy’s pictures from the day, the event went off without a hitch. Make sure to check out Stringer Productions‘ video at the end for more prettiness.

From the Bride… Yes, I am one of those women that has dreamt about her wedding ever since she was a little girl. When my husband and I met in Austin in the summer of 2012, it was like a thunderbolt. Already living and working in China, he was only in town for two days before he had to fly to New York. But that was long enough for us to have an amazing first date, followed by a whirlwind courtship with our second date in New York, our third date in Bruges, and our fourth date in Beijing. He met my family for the first time at Thanksgiving and proposed at Christmas, and I packed up my life in Austin to move to China to start our life together.

Then it was onto planning my dream wedding! I was in China (with a 14-hour time difference!), but luckily I had a wonderful, rock star wedding crew in Texas. We spent days and nights planning the wedding, and I attended site visits with my mom and crew whenever I could come back through Austin. I was meticulous and extremely detail-oriented about what I wanted, and they got me and my vision. They were my dream team.

My advice to future brides is this: Choose vendors that are calm, meticulous, and easy going, because you might change your mind – A LOT – especially if you’ve been planning your wedding since you were six (but do yellow satin princess bridesmaid dresses ever really go out of fashion?), and most importantly, choose people who will be overjoyed about your big day and also a comfort to be be around. Everyone I chose fit every one of those conditions, which calmed my nerves and allowed me to focus not on details but on our marriage and the beginning of our new life together.

People had always advised me to remember your vows, and remember your wedding, because it goes by in a flash! I focused on doing just that: Capturing and remembering every moment with my bridesmaids and house party, time spent with my family, and most importantly, the time spent with my new husband. I knew I could rely on my wedding planner and my photographers to focus on everything else and capture the memories for a lifetime, giving me the freedom to focus completely on the moment.

From the chandeliers above to the delicious stations to all the little travel ideas we had to the INCREDIBLE band to the 600 votives we had on long tables, my wedding was the best day of my life surrounded by my favorite people in the world and the man I am going to be with for the rest of my life.

From Westcott WeddingsAmanda and Drew were married on one of the coldest, windiest days Austin has seen in a long time, but you would have never known it. Our incredible vendor team pulled together the week before the wedding to enact the rain plan (hi, gorgeous draping!), and everything turned out beautifully. The tent was warm, cozy and filled with so much love and happiness!

Amanda had envisioned an elegant, fun party, so we worked with Verbena to fill long tables with hundreds of twinkling candles and big puffy white hydrangea, her favorite bloom. As a nod to Amanda + Drew’s love for travel, Word of Mouth created food stations filled with favorites from home + afar: Green chili-cheddar grits, spring rolls, empanadas, pie and Blue Bell ice cream. Southern Fried Paper designed post cards that doubled as table numbers–each one was named after a place Amanda + Drew had lived together or would visit on their honeymoon. Memphis Train Revue kept everyone dancing until the very end of the night, and then Amanda+ Drew departed for Antarctica (!) amid cheers and sparklers. Their joy was infectious!

From Taylor Lord PhotographyThis wedding was so gorgeous, and the only hiccup was by some April showers! Stephanie and Blake are one of the most in-love couples that I have ever shot. They are such beautiful people both inside and out, and their emotion and love for each other only made the night even more perfect. Stephanie wanted a feel of bohemian elegance. Todd Events did a great job capturing the bohemian floral feel while the Hotel Zaza provided a lot of romance and dark elegance. One of my favorite parts of the event (besides Stephanie’s STUNNING dress by Inbal Dror) was the table numbers on the mirror and vases of blooming cherry blossoms leading into the reception. It was such an innovative and truly stunning affair and will definitely be remembered by guests and vendors alike for years to come!
