An Austin Wedding
A terrible photo of the state capitol building. This thing is HUGE! It makes the one in Arizona look downright sad and dinky.
Bubba tried out the bed in his grandma's hotel room. She stayed at the Hotel San Jose. They had these really cool, minimal, zen type rooms with fantastic concrete floors and Bertoia chairs tucked into corners. They had the fanciest stuff in the minibar too. I wish I had taken a photo of it. The door to the bathroom was a giant one hanging on a track. So cool.
I loved the curled up fronds on this fern in front of the hotel. I can't remember if it was in front of her hotel or in front of the Austin Hotel down the street.
We had dinner here the night before the wedding. It was a great casual way to meet everyone before the big day. I ate a meal comprised of several different types of meat. The only thing I ate besides meat was the slice of bread I shared with the baby. It was kind of strange, but VERY good.
Right after the ceremony - the new Mr & Mrs! I made the bouquet. She wanted a bouquet made from succulents, so when they were in town over Christmas we went to the wholesale faux flower shop where she picked out a few different faux hen and chicks and also the leaves that were around the edges. I added some Spanish moss and lots of hot glue to the mix and came up with this. I wrapped the handle with terra cotta satin ribbon and lots of little teal blue pearl head pins down the back. I don't think it came out half bad for my first attempt at something like this!
One of the other guests had a little girl who was two months older than Bubba. She was just the cutest thing!
He tortured her by offering her his cars, and then when she would finally reach out to take one, he'd snatch it back. My son is a booger.
The groom's brother is a set designer for movies and plays, and he did the backdrop for the ceremony. It was really cool! He filled it with all sorts of small succulents that they bought the day before. My sister in law told me that he had actually listed it on Craigslist that morning, and someone bought it before the wedding even happened. Not too shabby!
Photos of the bride and groom. They had the cutest little simple bunting hanging up everywhere that you will probably see reproduced here sometime soon.
