Our wedding was fun. October is a great time to get married in Austin. The weather on average is about 85 degrees. Make sure you manage all vendors if you want everything to go as planned. We had a few mix ups but nothing that was a show stopper. Also use a wedding website and the mapper for places to eat, visit etc.
I wanted to share with everyone the best cupcakes in Austin. Planet Bonnie makes the best tasting and the most moist cupcakes I have ever tasted. I have hired Planet Bonnie to make the cupcakes for my wedding that was just in October 2010.
Bonnie was a very easy and flexible person to work with. We collaborated on the vision I had for my cupcake table and came up with great ideas together.
She searched high and low for the perfect cupcake stands that went great with my simple/modern theme for my wedding. For the 6" cake on top the fondant flowers matched the green color perfectly I had in my wedding. All the guests raved about how great the cupcakes tasted. She also had no problems with making as many flavors as I requested. Planet Bonnie also uses only the most fresh ingredients. No artificial colors or flavorings were used.
For the bride's towers I had key lime, chocolate mint, chocolate/vanilla, chocolate/chocolate, vanilla/chocolate, vanilla/vanilla.
The groom's tower had carrot with orange cream frosting and german chocolate.
The pricing was very reasonable and affordable we were even given extra boxes to take home the extra cupcakes to eat throughout the week.
I also used Planet Bonnie to make the cupcakes for my husbands surprise birthday party in July 2010. The cupcakes were great as usual and she delivered as promised.
Needless to say. Planet Bonnie has the best cupcakes I have ever had. My husband and I will continue to use Planet Bonnie for any future special events.
I used Austintatious Weddings as my florist for my wedding in October 2010. The experience I had working with Sunny Landeros was fantastic. As we went over the planning process for the type of flowers I wanted at the ceremony and reception she was full of ideas and great suggestions. Items I would have never thought of on my own. The responsiveness of questions either via phone or email was done very quickly. Working with Sunny was very simple and we created a good rapport.
The bouquets and ring bearer pillow came out gorgeous. The centerpieces were more beautiful than I could have imagined.
My sister also used Austintatious Weddings for creating the centerpieces at my bridal shower. Sunny and my sister worked remote and everything was delivered timely and created as planned.
I definitely would use Austintatious Weddings for any event needing flowers and especially for my wedding. The pricing was very reasonable and affordable for my whole event.
We interviewed several officiant's in the area and clicked with Mike Rinehart. He was willing to listen to the type of ceremony we wanted for our big day. We were able to customize our vows without any issues. Mike Rinehart performs religious and non-religous ceremonies.
Mike performed a non-religous ceremony for us but with spiritual touches. The guests commented on his great presence and how his voice drew them in so they felt part of our ceremony.
The ceremony was special but also light hearted at times. He knew how to make small tid-bits to get the guests chuckling a little bit. Which was great so everyone felt relaxed and comfortable.
Wonderful guy and we would definitely recommend him for conducting any ceremony.
Ron Parks photography was a great choice as a photographer for our wedding. The engagement photo shoot went great. Ron was very flexible and worked well with incorporating our three dogs. At the wedding all the details were captured from the reception tables, candy buffet, wedding tree, the food etc. Ron and his assistant worked well with our bridal party and family. The end result of the photos came out great. I can't wait to make photo books for my family.
I definitely recommend holding your wedding here at Vintage Villas. The views of Lake Travis are amazing and the overnight accommodations are wonderful.
Lauren Allen was our event coordinator and she did an amazing job. Very positive and upbeat is what every bride needs when they are nervous and antsy. The room set up was done perfectly. She was willing to help with anything that we needed. Her assistant Lisa was amazing as well. I had her running back and forth to my room for some items I had forgotten/needed.
Second the food was incredible. All the guests commented on how great and carefully prepared the food was. The beef tenderloin was moist and not overdone. The crab cakes had the best flavor.
Also having an event at Vintage Villas saves time and coordination especially since all food is catered on site. We were also given two plates of food from our reception to snack on later. That was a wonderful idea!!
The hotel suite was a perfect ending to our day. .Nothing like sitting in the jacuzzi and unwinding from the whirlwind of your wedding.
