Right before Thanksgiving, I had the privilege to meet some wonderful people at The Blueprint Events’ Around the World in 80 Days, which was an opportunity for fellow entrepreneurs to meet and greet! I had a great time meeting all sorts of people working in a variety of businesses and industries mostly geared to events and wedding planning.Read More...

Bachelorette parties come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and themes. And Kelly Clarkson’s last night of singleness was no exception. The Marvelous Vintage Tea Party Company (TMVTPC) proudly hosted Clarkson’s rather risque soiree, but with an air class and elegance. Clarkson’s private party highlighted a 1920′s theme with 21st century flare. According to E! News, Clarkson’s pictures reveal the bride-to-be and guests, “…wore retro, flapper-era accessories, and were served cocktails out of tiny tea pots labeled “moonshine,” “whiskey,” “scotch” and more.” Those in charge of organizing this celebrity’s gathering were sworn to secrecy, but owner of The Marvelous Vintage Tea Party Company, Sophie Parrott opened up to E! News about the services provided at such an occasion.Read More...
When I was one of nine bridesmaids this past weekend in Los Angeles, I was not too sure who would be doing my makeup and hair for the big day of our dear friend. She had her own private makeup session with a professional and looked absolutely stunning. The bridal party; however, unsure who to turn to looked to our fellow bridesmaid who prepped and styled all of us with fabulous hair and makeup. We joked how she should really delve into cosmetics professionally, so she could make a pretty penny doing what she loves.
And if she were in Austin today, I would send her to this lovely makeup professional for a Mirabella training session.Read More...
Big trailer, little trailer, cart, wagon, they are all over Austin! In parks, sidewalks, parking lots; they even have their own trailer park on South 1st. Any foodie will tell you how good food trucks are. They are trendy, fast service, eclectic, and absolutely delicious. Food trucks are becoming such a big trend these days that they have even started to be incorporated in weddings! People have been using them for main courses if it’s a small wedding, a place to take a break in between breaking it down on the dance floor, and of course as late night munchies. With food trucks as such a fad right now, who wouldn’t want one at there wedding? I know I would love to chow down on some East Side Kings after breaking a sweat on the dance floor, or nibble on one of Gourdough’s amazing donuts topped with all kinds of goodies. Food trucks may not be for the traditional sit-down wedding, but if you’re planning a casual or outdoor wedding, you should really consider looking into a food truck. The beauty of food truck’s is they can personalize a menu at a much cheaper cost then your typical banquet food, and it’s gourmet! How could you say no to that?
Check out some food trucks seen at weddings and some of Austin’s local favorites

A Wedding “Deep in the Heart of Austin”
This is an amazing Austin wedding that was coordinated by Posh Pro Shamika Johnson of An Event To Remember. The wedding took place at The Center for Maximum Potential Building Systems (located off FM 969); the photography for the wedding was done by Katherine O’Brien Photography; the food was provided by The Peached Tortilla; the bartending services were provided by the Austin Bartending Company, and the entertainment was provided by the Son y No Son band. The bride and groom Felicia and Ariel added their own personal Austin style to this mexican- themed shindig, and it couldn’t have turned out cooler! I absolutely love that they used an Austin food trailer to provide the food for the reception.
A word from the planner…
Felicia and Ariel are true austinites that fell in love with nature and architectural designs. The compound was filled with exotic landscaping, festive, and one of a kind art pieces. The couple wanted their wedding to be relaxing and filled with love. The Groom played a big part to make sure the grounds were jussst right! Overall their wish was to share all the things they loved with their guests and loved ones. I’m proud to say that we were able to accomplish that for them! <3

A Word From Nadine…
“I love taking photos of people. I especially love capturing the emotional landscapes in a face, the movement of the body and the relationships between people in a photograph.
Wedding photography is so wonderful. I’m surrounded by people in love, people celebrating love and it’s an honor to tell their love story.
My hobbies include curling up with a book and an iced chai, having little adventures like discovering a new restaurant in town, or big adventures like walking on one day old lava. I always feel like wedding photographers need to have a strong sense of adventure, since the most random stuff happens at weddings.
My style is photo-journalistic; unposed and documentary. The goal is to capture moments as they happen during the wedding day, and as Joe Buissinck says: “To capture those moments, I would suggest that one should be in the moment.””
