Real Weddings: Katie + Nick

Pin It

You see it in the movies all the time. A pretty girl attends a wedding as a single guest, hoping that maybe there would be a handsome and available guy there to sweep her off her feet and dance the night away. Well, not only was this how Katie and Nick met but they soon became each other’s happily ever after and no surprise to those who know them well. Katie has been nothing but smiles from her engagement pictures around Austin to their pedicab exit from their fairy tale wedding at the historic Chateau Bellvue and Josh with AzulOx Photography has been around to capture it all!  I love the tenderness and the spunk that you can see in each of these lovely images.

Even though they call Seattle home now, they met while in Austin. When Nick found out he needed to move for work they created a “bucket list” of things to do in Austin. Little did Katie know his bucket list included a proposal off the iconic Austin 360 bridge. Katie began the next chapter, planning her Fairy tale Wedding!

One of my favorite things to do with my brides is talk about who they are, how they met, and incorporate their personalities into their wedding day. It’s the easiest way to leave your guests talking about your event long after the night is done. For Katie and Nick they incorporated their fairytale story in the details like their table and seating arrangements.

Each guest found their name listed under the name of a city that held some special meaning for Katie and Nick and at the table a picture and a story to tell them why.

Nick loves forest green and Katie wanted lots of purple. I love how the talented floral team from Stems Floral Design pulled together these romantic designs with a just-picked-from-the-garden look.

In addition to the traditional bride and groom’s cake, their dessert table boasted some of the couple’s favorite treats from Sweet Treets Bakery including lavender decorated lemon bars, cannolis and cookies.

Even their place settings had a little bag of lavender meant to share a little piece of something special from Nick and Katie’s home.

Special Thanks to our amazing vendor team for this fairy tale wedding!
