Pink and Gold Austin Wedding

Whimsical Weddings

All around the office we’ve been crushing hard on bride Katie’s style: modern, streamlined, and classic all in one. This includes a custom made gown by Erica Lindy, a chic bun from Frenchy’s Beauty Parlor, and an incredible bouquet from The Byrd Collective. Our greatest thanks goes out to Nathan Russell Photography for sharing this wedding with us!

From the bride, Katie: We envisioned something simple and elegant but festive since it was on New Year’s Eve. I decided to have a very small wedding with a family style dinner served immediately after. We met all of our friends down at the barn for the New Year’s Eve party a little later in the night. We really lucked out with the weather because it was foggy and a bit rainy which made everything really romantic feeling.

We wanted the evening to be special not only because it was our wedding day but because people were sharing the start of their new year with us! There were plenty of late night snacks like bacon wrapped jalapenos, sliders and a fire pit with s’mores. For a color scheme we used lots of blush tones accented with gold. We had plenty of DIY projects! Dip Dyed Napkins, painted vases, custom party horns and tinsel drink stirrers!

Casey Brodley, Photographer

I’m not a traditional wedding photographer. My background and training is steeped in photo journalism, so that’s how I approach a wedding. My goal is to document the day, not stage it. I let moments unfold naturally, with minimal prom posing and minimal “say cheese” interference.

As a photo journalist, I come prepared for anything. Every wedding is different. I have witnessed full-grown men weep more times than I can count. I have seen smiles so wide that I’m concerned someone may burst a blood vessel. I have climbed mountains with all my gear. And this one time a sprinkler system was triggered during a ceremony.

As a wedding photographer, I walk into every job with the guarantee that I will witness pure joy. But more importantly, I walk into every job with the probability that my day will end with cake. I like to keep my cake-to-work ratio balanced. For health reasons.

Place a ring of Agave or honey on a plate in a circle shape about the size of your glass. Place sugar crystals on another plate.

Dip glass upside down in agave and then directly into sugar. Tip and turn in the sugar to coat the rim evenly.

Dart Collective

DJs • Bands • Party Down

Started as a California-based DJ collective in 2013, Dart has now grown to include numerous live musicians and performers, all with the same simple goal of offering a more customized and personal approach to music curation at weddings and special events.

At Dart, we are all working DJs and musicians. Music is our passion and we want to share it with you and your guests—whether that means digging through vinyl crates for that one song you have to have, or customizing a repertoire list for one of our bands to flawlessly execute, our main goal here is to elevate and personalize your event so that it uniquely represents you.

Despite our attention to detail, we are not elitists and we do not take ourselves too seriously. These events are supposed to be fun, inclusive experiences and we want to only enhance that feeling by playing the best music we can. Whether it’s getting down to LCD Soundsystem or setting the mood with Paul Simon, we want to offer something a little different that will still connect with you and your guests.
