It was a steamy, high allergy forecast kinda Saturday in Austin, but this happy couple had a lovely wedding at the scenic Paggi House. Megan and Jon had to plan their wedding from afar but with tons of help from family and friends, it all came together nicely. The theme was rustic romantic with the colors of blue, shades of purple, and white.
The bride along with the support of her Texas family and friends DIYed most of the wedding details including mercury glass vases and votives, succulent arrangements, burlap table runners, boutonnieres, bouquets, the guest book, welcome/menu signs, and photo displays. Megan’s dad built an impressive pie display, a cousin added lighting, and an uncle DJed some of the reception music. Strings Attached provided the live music. There was even an MD/JD dance-off to The Cupid Shuffle–both sides brought their A-game. 🙂
This wedding definitely had more details and decor than any other wedding I’ve DOCed, but with the help of the Paggi House staff, it went pretty smoothly. Prior to the wedding, we had three meetings including two walk-throughs and a craft night where I helped with the timeline, layout, assignments, boutonnieres, and identifying any gaps. On the day-of, the ceremony site of Queen of the Angels Chapel had their own coordinator so I focused on the reception. At Paggi House, I set up/took down centerpieces, the guestbook/gifts table, and the pies/dessert room (the delicious smell of the pies from the Texas Pie Company was quite distracting while the Grooms whiskey bottle cake from Blue Note Bakery was just amazing); coordinated with the vendors; helped serve ice cream; and ensured the wedding followed the timeline. It also helped that Megan and Jon’s family and friends are such a fun and helpful group.
At the end, everyone seemed to have a grand time and went to the after-party/home with full bellies, happy hearts, and a few succulents. 🙂
