Victoria Shostak Weds Dustin Polvado | Floral Filled Austin Wedding
by Lindsey Craig December 5
Victoria and Dustin’s elegant floral filled Austin wedding began with an upstairs ceremony followed by dinner in the downstairs ballroom with dancing and entertainment in the adjacent outdoor courtyard. The couple incorporated some traditional elements but definitely put their own spin on their celebration, and Austin wedding florist Samantha with Bricolage made the couple’s wildest floral dreams a reality! Cheers to the happy couple!

Victoria and Dustin hit it off over happy hour the day before Thanksgiving 2014. After dating for almost three years, Dustin pulled off a surprise proposal in August 2017. The day started with a spa afternoon followed by a “casual” hike up to the 360 bridge to watch the meteor shower that was passing through that evening. When she reached the top of the hill Dustin was waiting surrounded by flowers, candles, and a professional photographer on hand to capture it all.
When they first began wedding planning they debated the size of the wedding, its style, location and even considered a destination wedding. But once they stepped inside Palazzo Lavaca everything fell into place. Some of their favorite moments involved their music selection. Instead of traditional “father and daughter” and “mother and son” dances they chose to have a take on “an anniversary dance” to “Remember When” by Alan Jackson.
