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?

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.””

Vintage-chic on a budget…
Check out this awesome vintage inspired wedding that we found on stylemepretty.com. This local couple was looking for a way to have a gorgeous and fun wedding without having to cut down their guest list. What they came up with was a large, less-expensive wedding venue just outside of Austin in Bastrop, TX along with some gorgeous vintage rentals from Loot Vintage Rentals and a lot of DIY projects. Our very own Yellow Umbrella Events coordinated the event and Nadine Photography captured the event.
Check it out!
I love the use of the vintage china filled with roses as the guests’ table center pieces. I also love that they had several small and simple wedding cakes. Very cute touch! What do you think? What would you copy from this vintage-chic wedding?
I recently took a trip out to Manor, to meet one of my favorite venue owners here in the Austin area. While there, we took a stroll around the property, as we often do, to see what she was working on. I am always inspired by the creativity of TerrAdorna’s owner Dory and asked her, “Where do you find your inspiration?” “Well, most of the time it is from the earth around us. TerrAdorna is surrounded by conservation easements. That sort of view is inspiring.”
I met Dory and Tom at a networking event on 6th Street, just over a year ago. They were deep in the process of building TerrAdorna, and were eager beavers to learn everything they can about how to serve Brides and Coroporate clients with style. We chatted for a while, and became friends. The first time I went out to TerrAdorna, the construction was in full swing. It was hard to imagine how beautiful the place would turn out, especially when there is so much of Dory and Tom being poured into every little detail! Here are a few of my favorite details from my visit this week. I hope to revisit soon, and get more shots to share with you. If you haven’t found your venue yet, you really should take a 20 minute drive out to TerrAdorna and get a private tour from Dory and Tom.
Dory shared with me that the iron gate you see at the bottom of the photo is going to hold up a metal grate that will be painted black. It will be immersed just under the waters surface, allowing for a really unique “walking on water” photo opportunity for Brides! Now who wouldn’t want that in their photo albums?
