stacey + dan
Stacey and Dan are oh-so-sweet!
Actually, for Stacey, being sweet is literal in her day-to-day life. She’s a super-talented baker!
I first met her through the Austin wedding industry long before she was ever engaged, and at the time, she was telling me about her boyfriend Dan, how they met, etc – just 2 friends chatting. When she called me to tell me they were engaged and planning their wedding, I was thrilled!
They were married in late October on a seriously gorgeous day here in Austin. Their ceremony was held at St. John’s United Methodist, and post-ceremony, they took advantage of the fall decor and took some pictures in the Church’s pumpkin patch!
For their reception, they chose The County Line on the Lake to treat their guests to some delish Texas barbecue. We took over the event space in the back, and with the weather as perfect as it was, we set up the space so the guest tables spilled out onto the lawn area. The County Line was absolutely the perfect choice for their laid back reception. On each table, we had not only a centerpiece, but a board game! Once guests had finished eating, we told everyone to move around to the game of their choice and get playing. How fun is that?
And I couldn’t possibly talk about their wedding without bringing up their cakes. Since Stacey’s a baker, no ordinary cake could do – and Blue Note Bakery knocked these out of the park (as usual). The bride’s cake was adorable, polkadotted with her wedding colors – one of the tiers was Texas Pecan Cake with salted caramel buttercream… yes, please! And the groom’s cake? Well, you’ll have to take a look! The gears on the cake were incredible. One of my favorite touches was their cake toppers – adorable little bride and groom robots!
A perfect fall wedding for these two!
