rachel + adam
At the end of Rachel and Adam’s October wedding, as we were loading up her parents’ car, I couldn’t help but tell Rachel’s mom and dad that I wished I could’ve been a guest at this wedding. From start to finish, there were so many things for guests to enjoy (candy bar! photo booth!)… oh, and then there’s the epic dance floor.
But let’s start at the beginning!
Rachel and Adam’s wedding took place at AMOA Laguna Gloria, one of the most beautiful spots in Austin! After signing the Ketubah with their wedding party and families watching, they said their I Do’s under a beautifully decorated chuppah by The Last Petal in the outdoor amphitheater. While they took photos, their guests enjoyed Cocktail Hour on the patio of the Villa snacking on delicious appetizers by Austin Catering.
The reception took place in a gooooorgeous tent by Marquee on the front lawn. Between the drapery and chandeliers, a combination of long and round tables, so many beautiful flowers, and candles candles candles it was such a lush and romantic atmosphere in the tent. After Rachel and Adam’s first dance and parent dances, the crowd was all up on their feet for a rousing hora followed by the blessing of the Challah by Adam’s dad. Once the guests all had their dinner, the fun started – the toasts. Rachel’s father is hi.la.ri.ous. SO so funny. And the best man and maid of honor toasts matched his laugh for laugh. There were tears of laughter in the crowd. After dinner, there were plenty of options to satisfy any sweet tooth – Polkadots Cupcake Factory made a tower of yummy cupcakes, Austin Catering provided cookies, tartlets, brownies, and lemon bars, and a friend of Rachel’s family set up a candy bar.
And then fun really began! You want a DJ to lead an awesome dance party? DJ Chicken George is your guy. Seriously, the floor was never empty. And when the groom grabbed the mic to rap along, things only got even more fun. And as if that wasn’t enough, Whitney Lee Photography set up a photo booth complete with lots of fun props!
It was a hard task to narrow down the photos, but here we go! Check out Rachel and Adam’s awesome wedding!
