Real Wedding ~ Kristen + Joe’s Garden Gala

March 27, 2010 was quite possibly the most perfect day for a wedding in Austin, Texas – not too hot, not too breezy, just enough sun (which doesn’t happen too often!).  36th Street Events helped Kristen and Joe plan their drop-dead gorgeous wedding at the Wildflower Center and we couldn’t wait to share some of their photos with you! Kristen was all about making sure her guests had a fabulous time – from shuttling everyone around Austin for the weekend, to making sure they stayed nice and cool during the ceremony and cocktail hour with plenty of tasty beverages.  The details from this wedding were absolutely amazing as well – Izze Sodas + Izze the dog (who was also included in their cake!), a fabulous chalkboard menu, the lovely rustic-chic table numbers, and the gorgeous escort cards!  Check out some of our faves from the talented Ashley Garmon

{So obsessed with both of Kristen’s dresses from Melissa Sweet!}

{And these adorable dresses from Etsy? Come on – you know you want one!}

{Izze Sodas sat next to a photo of Kristen and her dog Izze – so cute!}

{No better way to keep your guests happy before the ceremony starts than with Primizie’s fabulous Strawberry Lemonade and Melon Agua Fresca.}

{We LOVE Kristen’s beautiful bouquet with peonies, anemones, dusty miller, and garden roses courtesy of Verbena!}

{Such a happy dad! Kristen’s parents were so much fun to get to know throughout the whole planning process!}

{Their ceremony in the courtyard was just perfect!}

{A happily married bride and groom!}

{Kristen’s laugh is definitely contagious – can’t you tell?}

{The reception in the courtyard was made complete with fabulous ambient lighting from lots of candles.}

{Kristen found this fantastic chalkboard on Etsy too! Such a great way to let your guests know what they’ll be served throughout the evening.}

{Gorgeous table arrangements from Verbena and our most favorite table numbers EVER from Etsy!}

{Check out that lighting again! Ilios did a fabulous job as always!}

{Skyrocket definitely rocked the reception – I’ve never seen a dancefloor so packed all night!}

We can’t wait to share more photos with you of all the fun details.  For more from Kristen and Joe’s ceremony and reception, check out Ashley’s blog for some other great shots!  And a VERY special thanks to the amazing vendors that helped make Kristen and Joe’s garden wedding become a reality:

Hi Kaylee! I know they were from Etsy, but I can’t seem to recall which shop they were from… best of luck looking!

Loved your menu chalkboard– very elegant. I just launched an Etsy store called Love, Boma where I am selling customized chalk boards in beautiful decorative frames. Check them out
