Jenn and Trip's Wedding

Having our wedding in Austin was amazing. While we basically wanted a modern American wedding, we didn't want it to feel overly theatrical. All of our vendors were wonderful people who exceeded our expectations and paid close attention to our needs (and budget!). Our wedding was not only lovely, but it felt warm and personal, like a big hug from all our family and friends. And since over half of our guests came in from out of town, wedding mapper helped us direct them around the city and find what they needed without any unnecessary hassle.

GCC Productions/Greg Hoffman
Cedar Park, Tx
DJs

Greg was awesome. He went out of his way to find some obscure instrumentals for me for the ceremony and attended the rehearsal to make sure we had all our cues right. Once we started telling him what kind of music we liked and what songs we wanted to hear (and didn't want to hear), he seemed to understand exactly what to play. The mood he set for cocktails, dinner, and teh reception was right on. He was fun, without being overbearing or making himself the center of attention.

Dream Bakery
Austin , Texas
Cakes/Candies

If your reception is downtown, Dream Bakery is a little out of the way, but it is so worth it. The cake was both delicious and beautiful. We also had the particular desire to find a bakery that could make a sugar-free cake option for a hypoglycemic bride, and Dream Bakery was one of the only places we found. Although the wedding cake was made with sugar, they also make a fabulous Splenda carrot cake or cheesecake.

Florists

Alison loves flowers, and it shows in her work. I frankly didn't have any idea what kind of flowers I wanted, and she was able to spend time and show me different options and choose something beautiful. And, she came in under my budget.

Photographers

I simply cannot say enough good things about Bill & Karen Peary. They take beautiful pictures; everytime I look through them, I relive the joy and excitement of the day. They are also wonderful people who were a pleasure to work with. They were easy to talk to, willing to negotiate on packages to fit our budget, took care to get the shots we wanted, and were gracious to our guests throughout the wedding.

Kim Thompson
Austin, TX
Coordinators/Planners

By the end of the wedding, Kim felt more like a friend than someone I had hired. She acted as our day-of coordinator and made sure I was able to enjoy the day without being bothered by little details. My guests thought she was fabulous and everything ran so smoothly it seemed like magic.

Austin Carriage

Limos/Shuttles

We left our reception via horse and carriage, and it was beautiful. The driver was fun and took us on a lovely, romantic ride before bringing us to the hotel.

Chateau Bellevue
Austin, TX
Ceremony & Reception

The Chateau Bellevue is, frankly, downright gorgeous and the makes you feel like you've found an old-world castle in central Texas. The food was delicious, the staff was friendly, and they were very accomodating. The only complaint we had was that they were a little too diligent in cleaning up during the ceremony - my husband has commented that he didn't get to actually finish a drink all night because one he set it down, it disappeared.

The hotel is recently remodeled, so even though the rooms aren't fancy, they were clean and comfortable. The price can't be beat in the Austin downtown area, and was within walking distance of our venue.

Hotels/Accommodations

Most of our relatives stayed here even though our wedding venue was downtown. The price was good, and it was easy to give them directions via MoPac. Everyone was pleased with their rooms, and the hotel staff went out of their way to keep our guests together even though we had not officially reserved a bloc of rooms.
