=With only two months to plan a wedding, Austin couple Lauren and Jeffrey knew they wanted something intimate and personal.
The food and drinks were the most important thing to them, so finding a venue that already had great decor was key. Not spending money on decorating, left them with money in the budget to serve the menu they really wanted. The obvious choice was their favorite restaurant Justine’s. With lush reds, pinks, and greenery, Justine’s offered the perfect atmosphere they were looking for.
For their attire, they kept it easy. Jeffrey ordered his suit online while Lauren found a shoulder romper off the rack. At the mall!
Lauren’s dad walked her down the aisle to “Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis as a tribute to her late grandfather. He loved Elvis. According to Lauren…
“Even though there were 60 people there watching us, it felt like it was just him and I sharing the most perfect moment ever.”
For the flowers, the couple used the same florist that works exclusively with the venue. They even had a circle of flowers that they stood in during the ceremony. They opted to skip a big wedding cake and instead have a tower of perfectly sized mini bundt cakes. For favors, they gifted guests with the ever adorable succulents.
As for DIY elements, Lauren made their chalkboard welcome sign and also crafted welcome bags for out-of-town guests with Austin themed goodies and a personal letter.
