This Large Elegant + Moody Wedding Still Felt So Intimate
by Brynlee Handy August 24
Planned by Pearl Events Austin in shades of deep burgundy, mauve, plum, charcoal and black, Katie and Michael wanted an unforgettable evening for their elegant, moody wedding. So that’s just what they got! Guests stayed close by with convenient and luxurious accommodations at The LINE Hotel Austin to keep their wedding weekend experience top-notch. Their sweet dog even got to be a part of the wedding festivities! Katie stunned in a romantic Yaniv Persy sheath gown paired with gorgeous accessories to match as she walked down the aisle. Their ceremony felt so intimate even though the couple had 250 of their closest friends and family there, with chairs on all sides of the two as they said “I do.” They shared their own heartfelt vows with one another in front of a breathtaking altar scene surrounded by stillness and candlelight. Cocktail hour on the roof was complete with uniquely styled signature cocktails perfected with cat-decorated custom ice cubes from Full Spectrum Ice Sculptures, a violinist, a tequila and mezcal shot bar plus two tequila donkeys! Then, their family-style southern dinner courtesy of Royal Fig Catering gave every guest delicious options that played out at place settings from Table Manners and other décor and rentals from Premiere Events that made the moody reception all the more luxe. There were so many over-the-top details to obsess over in Katie and Michael’s moody wedding. Read on for a note from the bride about what she learned from the planning process down below. Cheers to the Malfettones!

From the bride on what she learned from wedding planning: “Pick a design you love and stick with it. Be confident in your original inspiration. Also, don’t dwell on the small things – like the font style of your cocktail napkins. Pick one and move on so you can truly enjoy the planning process.”
