Our wedding day was better than I could have ever imagined! From the venue, to our food, to the people who attended, it was my own personal dream come true. We kept it small enough to be really romantic and intimate but large enough to include our closest friends and family. 
After getting engaged we flew to celebrate with Brice’s family who live in Switzerland. While there, I started googling wedding venues and came across one that took my breath away. I even said, “If that venue were in Texas, I would totally get married there.” Come to find out, it was! To make an educated decision, that I would have no regrets about, Brice and I visited a dozen of venues, only to leave feeling like they weren’t right. It was clear our venue had been chosen weeks before, in a sunroom in Switzerland. Villa Del Lago it was! The venue had everything we were looking for; you felt like you were worlds away from Austin, maybe tucked away in a Tuscan vineyard, and it was romantic, scenic, intimate, and absolutely beautiful. 
Before we started planning we sat down and came up with three adjectives we wanted the wedding to be. It was funny because we both wrote down the exact same things; fun, memorable, and classic. It was really important to us for everyone to have a good time, but also make them feel like they were all part of one, big, family. We also wanted a wedding that would be chic and stand the test of time, so we chose to do an all white wedding with accents of gold. The simple color palette allowed the beauty of the venue and the backdrop of Lake Travis to really stand out. I was also dead-set on having a long, family-style, table. It ended up being perfect with our venue. If you let things fall into place, it is crazy how it really does all work out.

Quick Change

ASOS leather shorts (similar), Zara shoes + top, Celine bag, Maya Brenner necklace, Alexander McQueen scarf
This month and the next few are non-stop! I am in between meetings, traveling, and more meetings! I have had to conquer the act of, “quick change,” so I can be on time for each event. I am off to another meeting and wanted to share the outfit I decided to rock. When in a hurry, I always go to my staple items; leather shorts, simple top, and easy accessories. 
I hope your day isn’t as crazy as mine, but if so, meet me at J.Crew at Northpark, this evening to unwind with some wine and shopping! and enjoy 25% off when you mention m.a.s. fashion (deets below).
