Rebekah & Aaron, October 2015, Austin

Working with Rebekah and Aaron was non-stop fun. They threw a wedding that was perfectly suited to the two of them and their modern romantic styles. Rebekah’s sister, Monica, is a poet who crafted and officiated a beautiful ceremony. Dinner and dessert featured multiple food trucks rolling up to serve the guests. Tequila was a common theme of the wedding, with a variety of tequila shot set-ups offered at the bar, a collection of over 150 tequila bottles serving as floral centerpieces, and a mescal toast by the bride and groom. Aaron, a developer, built the wedding website and a unique RSVP system that allowed guests to respond with a code personalized to them and their invitation. We carried the dollar (or boot) dance into the modern day by accepting credit cards via a Square reader. I loved designing Rebekah and Aaron’s ultra-hip wedding collateral including save the date, invitations (with custom envelope liners), koozies and wedding signage. My favorite parts of this wedding were helping Rebekah’s family coordinate a surprise gift of yellow roses from each of her 6 siblings; corralling their boxer Penny to take part in the formal photos; watching Rebekah dance battle with a 10-year-old cousin; and Rebekah and Aaron’s getaway via pedicab (after the wedding they headed to Crow Bar where we had reserved the private Crow’s Nest for an after party that shut down the bar late that night).
